I just recently got arrested for a DUI. Can they arrest me when I am already out of the car and walking into my house?
The cop was following me for a good 2-3 blocks. In the police report it says I failed to stay in my lane and made a wide right turn. However, he passed me when I made my turn. Obviously, he did not think he had a probable cause to pull me over at that point right? Then I pull into my driveway and start walking to my house. Only then do I see the cop pull speed up to the house and turn on his lights. He then says "driver I need to talk to you". I failed the field sobriety tests and fail the breathilyzer. Does he have legal justification to arrest my on private property? Is tere any way I can fight this and have a good chance of winning? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
Following you for 2-3 blocks gave the officer plenty of time to observe your driving and reasonable grounds to further...
DWI record is expunged-what does this mean?
I got a letter from DA and it stated that my DWI charge from one year ago is now expunged beings I have done everything asked of me. What exactly does that mean?
If it is actually expunged this means that any and all public records of the arrest, charge and conviction are sealed...
AGG DUI and DPS hearing in Oklahoma
I received an aggravated DUI a year ago in Oklahoma. I understand that the criminal case is separate from the driving record case. I am off probation, courses & comm service complete, fines paid etc. I am still waiting for the hearing with the DPS. As I understand, if the officer is present during the hearing and the DPS rep can find no fault with the incident, I will have to have an interlock in my vehicle for 2 years. This will mean that I will be out of a job since I will have to drive a company vehicle. This also means that this incident will have followed me for approx 3 years (assuming the DPS hearing will happen soon). What chance do I have to win the hearing? What can I do to help my case? I have a lawyer. This is my first offense and I completed everything with criminal case early
You have an attorney. Only he or she can properly advise you.

First offense dui probation violation
I am on 6 months supervised probation with 2 random uas per month. I failed a ua and have a failure to submit(based on color code supposed to call in everyday didnt call for a few days color was called and didnt know)...i have one and a half months left on probation. I have no prior duis Am i seriously looking at jail time or just extension of probation? Is it common for them to sentence jail for violation of probation. I understand I messed up and in no way am i asking for leniency or making light of the situation and I understand I have to reap consequences for not following my probation but if i am sentenced to jail, i know i will lose my job..i cant lose my job..can i request community service or another alternative in place of jail.?
Yes, you could be looking at jail based on probation violations... How likely that is depends on a number of factors...
Can I get a 2nd DUI felony conviction expunged in OK that occurred >10yrs ago?
I have a felony conviction for 2nd DUI (no accidents or injury involved in arrest) >10 yrs ago, no charges since that felony conviction. 18 years ago (age 19) I got two DUI's 6 mths apart and received a misdemeanor conviction with 2yr probation. The 2 DUI's where lumped together for the charge. 3 yrs later (age 22) I got another DUI and was charged with 2nd DUI felony. I have kept a clean record since with only minor tickets. I am now 37, married with kids, and would like to have the felony removed from my record and put it in my past for good. What is the process? How long will it take? How much will it cost? Is it possible??
This would require a pardon from the office of the governor. The current occupant of that office isn't very inclined...
Will my insurance be effected?
My dui was reduced in court but dps is still making me do the modified liscens. Would this mean even though I'm not convicted of the dui it will still go against me on my driving record?
Yes. If you have a modified license that means that your license has been suspended administratively by DPS. The only...
