Has the statute of limitation's run on my DUI in Georgia? What to do next moving forward?
Arrested for DUI while sitting in my car on Jan. 1st 2013, stayed over night at the Deluxe Hilton(jail) was released on bail the next day and went to court a month later for arraignment. At my arraignment was told to wait for a letter in the mail from the DA for formal charges (didn't make a plea). It's been 2 years and a month since then and no letter from the DA and no information on file at the clerk of superior court. Still checking in with bail bondsman every week and no warrants etc. to my knowledge. Also never lost my license or had a DMV hearing and this is a 2nd DUI offense. I took a blood test , refused field sobriety test. I haven't left the state or county in the past two years. Thank you for your time it is appreciated.
Hard to say without knowing more, but it sounds like the statute of limitations has run. Was your arraignment continued...
I was arrested February 01-2013 and still waiting on formal charges as of 7-29-14.. Does it normally take this long to file?
I was approached by a cop while sitting in my car(keys out of ignition safely parked on a side street) , the police office said he smelled a strong odor of alcohol and asked me to perform roadside test's but I refused and instead was arrested and had my blood drawn. I went to my arraignment (didn't plea and charges not filed) and was told I would receive a letter if charges are filed by the da...I have checked with the county clerk and still no filed charges or loss of license(no dmv hearing) and i'm just wondering if it's normal to wait this long for formal charges? my attorney told me to just wait and i'm doing just that. Also no blood test results yet.
No it is not normal to wait this long for a DUI Accusation to be filed. The DA/Solicitor has 2 years to file an...
What steps do I take to obtain a limited driving permit and interlock device after my 2nd DUI?
I was convicted of my first DUI in 2010 in Cobb. I was convicted of my 2nd DUI in the City of Woodstock in Sept 2013. I had to surrender my license plate and drivers license. I am on probation until Sept 2014. I have completed my risk reduction program and evaluation. I have completed my community service and paid my fines. I contacted an interlock device provider and was told I had to have a tag on the vehicle before the device could be installed. The tag office won't issue it. DDS won't issue a limited driving permit to me without the device. Is there a step that I am missing? How am I supposed to get a limited permit? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
You should hire lawyer to help you out. Any free advice you find on AVVO is worthless mostly incorrect.
Arrested for violating the rules of my restricted license while on probation.
I got pulled over for expired tag, even though I had my passed emission paper. I got a D.U.I and have a restricted license which grants me to drive to work and school. I got pulled over by the city police and accused me of violating the terms of my restricted license even though I was delivering a package that was work related. I was arrested for driving with a suspended license and was bonded out 6 hours later. I'm currently on probation through the county. Will my PO find out about this arrest and is it a violation? I literally get my real license back in a couple weeks and my court date is not until a month and a half.
If I understand you correctly, you were accused of driving outside your restricted licence, however you say we're...
Arrested for driving on restricted license question.
I got arrested yesterday for violating the rules of my restricted license. I work for an aircraft parts company and work Monday- Friday but I had to deliver at part to a hangar on Sunday and the cop didn't see it as work related so I was arrested. My court date is a month and a half away but I get my regular license back in a couple weeks. Do I have a good chance of getting this charge dropped if I show I got my license back?
If you can show some proof that you were driving to work you should be able to get that charge dropped.
What should I do?
I got a MUI st. Pattys weekend. I blew a .07 and I'm 20 years old. I was the one driving but I was driving someone home who was completely hammered. I past every sobriety test & got a ticket for a MUI. I have a clean record & this is my first offense. I also don't have enough money for a good lawyer though. I turn 21 in less than 2 months. I reallllyyy don't want to be put on probation
(You put MUI but I assume you received a DUI). Your options are to either get the help of the public defender OR find...
Can I receive my license back after 120 of my first D.U.I conviction?
Just got charged last week for my first D.U.I and received the mandatory penalties. I got my license suspended for 1 year but was able to retain a restricted license. Believe it or not, I already did most of my D.U.I classes I had to do and paid all my fines. I heard that I can I can apply for my license reinstatement after 120 of my conviction. Is this true and would I need a lawyer to help me do this? Thank you.
At the end of the 120 days, as long as you have completed risk reduction (DUI school) you can go get reinstated. You...
