You can just give the placard back to the relative but it would be a better idea to have the relative come to the hearing with you, bring the placard, and then you can have the relative as a witness that he was there with you at the mall and thus the use wasn't prohibited. You would have to take the position that he may have been driving later that day but judges are pretty good about accepting these types of excuses so long as the placard is actually issued to someone that needs it and that they were there that day.
If your question has been answered then I'd offer my best wishes to you and ask that you please not forget to leave a Positive Rating so I receive credit for my work. Of course, please feel free to ask any follow up questions in this thread. I want to be sure that all of your questions are answered.
It is possible. If you hire an attorney they will almost certainly get you a deal where you don't have to appear and it doesn't even go on your record. If you don't want to hire a lawyer then you can contact the prosecuting attorney and ask if you can reach a plea deal without appearing (although you will have to appear at some point).
The judge will just make the driver appear again at another time if he is set on revoking the placard.
Sure, the rating is 1 to 5 stars, with 5 stars being the highest. What do you want to rate?
The driver can call the court and ask the clerk how to contact the prosecuting attorney.
EVen if you reach a plea bargain you have to appear just to swear that you are agreeing to it. With an attorney they attorney can enter the agreement for you but without one it has to be the defendant.
Pretty easy. The time you come in and the flexibility depends on that specific judge. Some are tough and some are really easy to get along with.
