Is there any way I can reopen a DUI case I plead guilty to?
I plead guilty to a DUI of 0.092 In July. Now immigration has me detained for it and isn't letting me go because I can't prove to be a good moral character even though I've had a clean record since 1994, when I arrived to the US. Is there any way that my wife can reopen my case and fight to take the DUI off or reduced?
At the time of you plea were you warned of potential negative immigration consequences?
Received a DUI. How helpful would it be to attend classes/seminars beforehand?
1st time offense. My court date is still a few weeks away and I am wondering how helpful it would be to start attending AA meetings, possibly sign up for a 20 hr DUI class, and maybe attend a Victim Impact Panel before my court date? I want to show that I am remorseful for my actions and want to be proactive about things. What are the odds this will lessen charges? I've spoke with several attorneys but am getting inconsistent answers.
Did you get the DUI in Athens? If so, the facts of your case will really determine if the prosecutor would offer a...
Not listed as a dependent but still receive money from parents. Do I qualify for Public Defender?
Charged with a DUI but can't afford a lawyer (spoke w/several). Not listed as a dependent but my parents help me out with rent, etc. Does this disqualify my ability to get a PD as I do not have any other source of income?
Maybe. You will have to apply in the court and just find out. Good luck to you.
Can a recent DUI cancel my DACA before the expiration date?
I've had my DACA for about a year now, but I recently plead guilty to a DUI in April. Can ICE detain me before my DACA expires? Do I even still have DACA anymore? How do I know if it got cancelled?
I had client in similar circumstances without any immigration consequences.
Charged with DUI in Georgia with a SC driver's license, become GA resident and got GA license prior to conviction
My son is a grad student in GA (SC resident at the time) and was charged with DUI last fall. He had a plea deal that enabled him to get a restricted school/work drivers license in GA, in order to do this he had to claim residency in GA, get a GA DL, register his car, etc. He has a list of requirements he must meet, classes, community service, etc. Now after his conviction in GA (got his restricted license), he receives a letter from South Carolina saying his license is suspended in SC. The SC DMV implies this will nullify the GA license until the SC requirements are met. Will GA now suspend the restricted license they just gave him? What is the best course of action to take? He is willing to pay for what he has done, it just seems like he is now being charged doubly.
Call SC and tell them he's no longer a SC resident and see what he needs to do to get the hold lifted from his license.
Does Tennessee allow you to get a license if Florida has a hold.
Charge was 3 dui in 5 years. actually states 4 or subsequent. Last 1 was 3.5 years ago.Florida will allow me to get a license in 5 years but under special supervision. Must check on 2 times a month. I am not wanting to live in florida. It wasn't good for me. I have gone to rehab and no longer drink.
Probably not. If you have a suspended license in one state, other states will probably find out.

It depends. You should hire an attorney to discuss your options and defenses. Your attorney will be able to go over all...
