I had a wet reckless in California back in 2006 now I'm located in Kansas and just got a DUI.
I received a wet reckless in California back in 2006 but now I currently live in Kansas for the past 3 years. I just received a DUI recently but Kansas has never heard of a wet and reckless. They are trying to charge me for a 1st time DUI. Would they look into the wet reckless and try to charge me for a 2nd offense.? I am currently trying to do a diversion and in the application it ask for previous offense related with alcohol. Now of course I would have to put in that information. But if I apply for the diversion they well find out about that offense in California where at the moment they are just charging me with a first time offense. Would they be able to pull up that offense and charge me for a 2nd DUI?
A prior offense is defined in 8-1567 as (i) For the purpose of determining whether a conviction is a first, second,...
DUI diversion revocation?
I was cited for DUI in 2015, no prior record. I completed the diversion program (1 year stint) without incident. 79 days after I had completed said diversion I received a letter in the mail stating my diversion was being revoked due to a police report in which the officer states I was a witness to an event at a bar. Nearly 3 years after my DUI citation and over a year after my completed diversion I am attending a evidentiary hearing to refute this report (innocent & was not at bar or drinking). I graduate with an MBA in December, if revoked and charged this will have extremely detrimental affects on my life, career, education etc. IF revoked am I sentenced for DUI on the spot, or will I have time to appeal evidentiary hearing, plead non-guilty to original DUI and set for trial, etc?
Review your diversion contract. I suspect it says that the prosecutor has 30, or 60, or possibly even 90 days to file a...
DUI diversion revocation evidentiary hearing
Graduate student- charged with first time DUI in 2014- no record prior. Entered into pre-trial diversion which I completed flawlessly, no failed U/A-Breathalyzer, no missed appts, my D/O concluded my case would be dismissed upon my last appt Dec 2017. In March 2016 I received a notice of revocation of my previously completed diversion. This was due to a police report nearly a year prior that named me in a group of over 18 individuals that were halted by police for being rowdy outside a bar. I was never on bar property. Infact this incident was well over 2000-ft from the bar and I had only showed up minutes before to pick up friends. After explaining to police they took my statement, license, and let me be the first to drive off with the friends I came to pick up (they ended up letting everyone go). My name was on police report, thus it flagged the prosecutor at end of diversion background check. After 18 months of prosecutor plea's my attorney has now set case for an evidentiary hearing. I am not guilty, and do not want placed back on div/charged for DUI. If judge rules against, can I appeal/ fire attorney and seek new council? Thanks.
I don't understand a couple of facts from your question. First of all, if I understand you correctly, this would...
Can a Jan 2009 DWI (Felony, 3rd) be expunged in Kansas?
Previous two (2) were 8 and 14 years prior. This was during the time that Kansas had the lifetime look back time frame rule/law. Served 90 days house arrest, violated that and served 270 days in Shawnee County. I am wanting to have this expunged to aid in career change, job searching as well as not being easily looked up by the public, Thanks for any input.
Technically, that conviction cannot be expunged. Expungements are based upon the law in effect at the time that the...
