How can VA ASAP have a hold on my Driver License if the judge said my D.U.I. case is finished???
I had 2 D.U.I.'s (one 2010 & one 2011) in VA and took ASAP, and got a letter I successfully completed the program and classes and the case was closed. Knowing I had to report to court because of a 6 month restriction and ignition interlock was installed in my car. So when I went to court ASAP did not send any paperwork saying my case was closed, so I took my paperwork in and got my interlock removed with the judge knowing I had one violation. Now I moved to TN and tried to get a DL here their telling me I have a hold and have to clear it up in VA. If the judge over says ASAP and says I completed everything and my case is closed how can ASAP still have a hold on my DL if my case is closed there also. I also went to court 3 times and had to do everything myself because ASAP would not.
The fact that the criminal case is closed does not mean that all suspensions are over. You need to contact the VA...
Is intercourse with an intoxicated person under 21 rape?
I was 20 at the time of the incident, and the man was 4 years my elder. He got me into a 21+ bar and bought me numerous liquor drinks & shots. We had sex, though I was blacked out and only remembered pieces of the incident afterward. I became pregnant and only then did I figure out exactly what had happened that night after being told the exact events by the assailant. I received an abortion the following month. I never filed a legal complaint as I did not identify as a rape victim and because I stupidly trusted it was not a malicious crime. Only now, I suffer terrible anxiety because of the abortion and out of fear the assailant will tell friends and family about it. Also he was on felony probation at the time for drug related crimes.
Your age wouldn't be the deciding factor as to whether or not it was rape. Based on the facts as you tell them, it...
Is there anything that can be done about my underage consumption charge?
I was arrested with the charge of underage consumption . I was at a party where a person was arrested outside ( everyone else was inside besides home owners who were 21 ) who was under 21 ( above 18 ) for being around alcohol . The cops then arrested the house owners for contributing to minors ( which no one was , b / c we are all above 18 ) and that gave them " probable cause " to enter the premises . They arrested all the minors inside myself being one of them . I was thrown on the ground , sustained minor injuries ( bleeding from my shoulder and bruising on my back ) , was never read my rights , or Breathalyzer / sobriety tested . Simply taken to jail and charged . Is there anything I can do ?
Get an attorney. Sounds like the charge could be dismissed with experienced counsel or at the worst, you'd get...
I need to produce a Motion For Dismissal of DUI in Tennessee. Is there a of such a motion that I can use.?
I was arrested for suspected DUI. I have both a passenger witness and I believe their car tape that will substantiate I was not DUI. I need a "model" so I can produce a motion for dui dismissal. This is my 1st time before the judge and no plea has been entered yet. I will be representing myself as I am a 100% disabled veteran without adequate resources immediately at hand.
You should not represent yourself unless its an absolute necessity. You can get a public defender if you qualify for...
I got stopped at the hospital where I lived in May, went into the hospital to see about a severely abcessed tooth. It was early morning and I had been drinking. I drove over 14 miles to the hospital when a cop at the hospital followed me inside and engaged me. He then asked me to take the normal DUI tests which I did and failed. I never got seen at the hospital. I was taken to jail and sent to a cell. I was then brought to an adjacent cell where I stupidly gave blood. The was on Mothers day. The next day I was bailed out and went home. This case has yet to be determined. Here is the kicker on which I think I can beat it on. I was not arraigned for 3 weeks from my arrest date because the judge had hip surgery. From my understanding I still have to be arraigned in a timely manner (48-72 hour

I got charged with dui in tennessee but I passed the breathalyzer can I appeal
On the evening in question I was pulled over for no seatbelt. I had open containers in the backseat. I was taken to jail, where I passed a breathalyzer with a .06 BAC. A marijuana cigarette paper, was found in my vehicle. No other drugs or paraphernalia was found. I was charged with a DWI for driving under the influence of marijuana. I was never drug tested, and no blood was taken. I was found guilty because I did not come to court while I was incarcerated in another county.
It depends on when and how your case was tried. Typically, a bench warrant for failing to appear would be issued for...
