DUI in Duluth Municipal Court.
I was arrested for a DUI. The case is in Duluth municipal court. I worked out a deal with the solicitor. I finished all classes and all requirements. Finished my probation a month ago but still haven't heard from them regarding official disposition. Do I need to request that or is it mailed to me? And if i need to request it do i just show up in court and what is the the process? Thank you.
It's not clear if you were convicted, or if you participated in some type of pre-trial diversion program. If you were...
DWI between moving out of state, (NC to GA)
I was a resident of NC when charged with DWI (class 5, first offense). I will plead guilty. I have moved to Georgia since the arrest and need to apply for a license. I have already served the mandatory 30 day revocation, per NC law. I have done community service and assessment before the hearing, enrolled in counseling which should be completed before I appear before a judge to satisfy the NC requirements. The week after the arrest, I moved to Georgia. I must legally register to drive with the GA DMV and now have my NC license back (pre conviction). NC will suspend my license, but they have my NC license on record. I will have a GA license at the time of my hearing. Will I have to satisfy GA requirements AND NC requirements? What is the precedent?
Your best strategy is to ask (or your lawyer should ask) the clerk of court to send in the conviction to the Georgia...
DUI less safe drugs and roadblocks
I was stopped at a roadblock shortly after smoking marijuana. I did have it in my possession and my blood was tested. I had also taken an unprescribed adderall previously that day. In my understanding, they must prove that I was a "less safe" driver because of the marijuana. How can this be done if I was stopped at a roadblock? Also, how will the adderall come into play (if at all)?
Most prosecutors will take the "any in your system" approach. But you are correct about less safe, it is difficult if...
Clearing a DUI warrant for a non domicile
Dear sirs I am an English national who was working in Georgia on an H1 B visa from 2001 to 2002. I was arrested for a DUI in 2001 and paid my fine and attended court. I thought that the matter was closed however I have taken a vacation in the USA twice in the last few years and every time I get stopped for an outstanding warrant. Is there any way I can get this charge removed? If it's not possible to have the charge removed would there be a chance of being denied entry to the USA by border control? As mentioned I get pulled and questioned by border guards but have been allowed entry but I would like to get this warrant closed out or removed if possible. I'm planning a honeymoon in Seattle this fall and would like to have this cleared before then if possible.
