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.
What will the judge likely give me for my first dui probation violation?
I have been on probation since September 2014. Recently(May) my drug test result came back positive for alcohol (.6ng). My probation officer told me that I will have to spend a few days in jail, go to court, and then get a drug use evaluation. Since I have finished my community service hours, finished dui school and paid off everything, my officer told me that all I would need to do would be to pay for the drug tests and whatever else the judge gives me. Afterwards I would carry on probation as usual. My officer told me I may be ordered to take some classes but I'm not sure if that is all. Will I have to pay court fees? Have my drivers license suspended? Will I have a new probation officer? Any additional fees that I can expect? More drug testing? I have a job and am in school. Thanks

Could this condition get your FST thrown out? The officer pulled me over for speeding claimed he smelled alcohol, and had me perform the FST after I was arrested he said it was something about my eyes...could this help them get thrown out?
Your question isn't clear. If he administered the test after you were already arrested, then the test could be...

How to prove I was drugged the night before a DUI arrest was made which resulted in a blood test?
My friends had put me in a cab the night before...because I started getting really sleepy all the sudden at the bat after taking candy from a complete stranger...yes I know not to do that but was drunk and did not use my best judgment...my friends told me I quit drinking before one...got pulled over around 9 blood test at 1030...have no idea if there is anything in my system other than any remaining alcohol...pulled me over for speeding after my husband had kids had dropped me off to pick up my car...and we had just went and ate breakfast which was purchased on a debit card...is it something I can prove or just remain at mercy of the court to believe me if anything else yields from the test...
Was this recent? If so, go get your own blood test ASAP, and then hire a lawyer.
