Legal Answers
80 Questions Answered
Q. Can police see your warrant if they run the license plates of a vehicle that is not registered under your name?
A: You are right in that it does not make sense that they would find a warrant for you based on looking up someone else's license plates. There are a lot of different reasons police pull people over. Here, if the tags were actually expired, that is a legitimate reason. However, sometimes a police officer will recognize the driver as someone they have dealt with before and then try to find a reason, or make one up, for pulling over the vehicle. One would have to look at the police report to find more information.
Q. My son is being charged with burglary and a strike for attempting to break in to a detached garage
A: What is your question? Are you looking for an attorney or for some information?
Q. I found that I got a ticket 3 years ego and they sent letter to address that was not on my driving license
A: If the ticket is causing a hold for your drivers license, then you should take care of it. Find an attorney in the area of where the court is located and hire them to help you resolve it. By the way, if you were handed a ticket in person, that would have been notice to appear. The court letter is a courtesy notice, not required to hold you accountable to appear in court. If you were not given a ticket, and no other notice to appear in court, then you have a valid issue to fight.
