Hire an attorney as soon as possible. Follow your attorney's advice.
I was arrested for DUI in georgia in 2009 and the case was dead docketed. Arrested again 1 year later and the second time I was convicted. I complied with all of the legal obligations (probation, etc.) However, I got behind on my probation fees due to my inability to obtain employment. Wanted to leave GA to seek employment elsewhere. I elected to do the remainder of the sentence in jail so I could legally leave the state.. Now it shows up as a violation of probation. Can I get the VOP expunged? I was violated simply because I couldn't pay. My question is does the first arrest show up on a criminal background check as a conviction? I checked the county court records for the first arrest and it shows up as "closed" in 2010. (Dated before the 2nd arrest and conviction (no further activity)
The first arrest should not show as a conviction, and under Georgia's new expungement laws you should be able to...
Back in 2011, I plead guilty to a 2nd in 5 DUI after which I did jail time for my action, was put on probation, and had several requirements to fulfill to satisfy probation. Shortly after my sentencing, I moved to Chicago and have lived here ever since. I promptly completed my classes, and terms of probation and have not drank, nor been in any legal troubles while living here. The one thing remaining is to reinstate my GA drivers license but to do so, I must a) pay a reinstatement fee, b) submit the drug treatment evaluation to DMV, and c) install ignition interlock. My question is for c) ignition interlock: I do not have a vehicle, nor do I plan on moving back to GA and I need assistance with how to get a waiver from the judge so I can a) get a license, and b) potentially purchase a car
An Attorney would have to file for a hardship Waiver from the Court.
It is my understanding that some courts don't consider alcohol related offenses criminal.
Yes, it's a crime. If you're facing a DUI charge, get a lawyer.
The first incident I took the sobriety test and felt the officer was not fair in her evaluation. The incident this weekend occurred when I went through a yellow light and was hit by another car. I thought about taking the sobriety test, but given how the last exam went, I declined. I was arrested due to smelling like alcohol. My friend was in the car with me and I picked him up from the bar, so I knew I would smell like alcohol. I thought I would be tested when I arrived at the jail, but when I got there I was booked and never tested. Now I am facing a 2nd DUI charge. I am not sure what to expect or how to proceed besides contacting my lawyer.
There's really only one way to proceed right now. Hire your current lawyer or another lawyer immediately. Because you...
Somehow my GA license is suspended, as well a license in NY(that I do NOT have). I can't receive a GA limited permit because of this suspension/cancellation that is somehow in NY. Are they able to do this ? If so, how should I go about the situation...
New York has suspended your privilege to drive in that state. They also alerted the Georgia Department of Driver...
