  1. Isreal, I wish I had better news for you. But the truth is, without a drivers license, you are prohibited form driving always, not just for a year or two. That is why they took your car. I would say just make sure you show up on time. The court is not going to care about your immigration status. All they will want to know is: do you have or can you get a drivers license; and do you have or can you get insurance? If you cant, you cant. You can still end the cases. It is not a serious or violent offense. It”s a common driving problem. If there is a misdemeanor, you do have the right to a public defender if you cannot afford to hire a private attorney. You should talk with an attorney familiar with your case in court before making any decision on a misdemeanor.
