Statues Of Limitation for a DUI?
I was charged last year January for a misdemeanor DUI I went to court and my lawyer took the case and I am just waiting to see what’s next my lawyer is waiting for evidence does my case met the requirements for the statues of limitations
Timing sounds about right for Richmond County and no it doesn't sound like you case will meet those requirements.
How Can I get my DUI charge dropped?
I was wondering if there’s a way I can get these dui charges I just received dropped. I didn’t take the implied consent because the officer said it in a way I couldn’t understand and when I asked him can you tell me what happens if I don’t take it he said he can’t say that but can only read the card again. I declined regrettably. I believe I passed the physical test to test if you are intoxicated but failed the Breathlizer test by getting 0.023 instead of 0.02 due to me only being 19. I was pulled over for speeding.
A good dui lawyer may be able to help get the charges dropped or reduced. There are several ways this can be done...
Can I move to other state during DUI probation?
I have 1st DUI and I'm still on a probation, but my case has been closed and I submitted all the documents (DUI school, evaluation and community service) and the fine as well. And my PO said I can ask to my attorney to get a non-reporting probation, but I didn't ask him yet .What do I have to do for the non-reporting probation and is it possible to move to the other state (From GA to LA) for transferring my college? Or transfer probation office to the state?
If your probation officer allows you to move, then you can move. Just make sure you get that in writing from them so...
What's my risk for and how to avoid a DUI?
I suffer from debilitating back pain that requires percocet at a minimum as well as soma or baclofen to literally sometimes not just be in tears from pain. On my last visit to my pain dr they had me sign something that stated driving and taking percocet was an automatic dui. First off, I don't and haven't drank in over 20 years because I take pain pills, but I also don't take a pain pill and drive but obviously they stay in my system. So there are days that I will be in incredible pain but know I have to drive and I just grit my teeth and sometimes literally cry until I can get home. What I want to know is with taking pain pills how can I avoid any question of a dui short of not driving which is not an option in my situation at the moment. I've not had any tickets in 17 years and my mother was permanently disabled from a car accident caused by someone who was high on marijuana and I don't want anyone else to have to suffer the childhood I did. So I'm not looking for loopholes but what I have to do to not put me at risk legally.
You avoid a DUI by not driving when you have meds in you which could affect you. The fact that your medication is...

Hello all I have a question about a misdemeanor giving false information charge?
Hello I have arraignment for court Tuesday and I can't afford a lawyer . so most likely I'll just speak to the solicitor or hopefully get a court appointed attorney if needed. But the charge stems from officers saying I said 1991 and not 1992 even though I gave them my full name and DOB . they claim I said the wrong year and I know its gone be their word over mines . I really dont have a record at all so I was wondering what type of punishment could I be looking at in gwinnet county state court.
Its hard to tell without a full examination of the evidence. I can tell you that misdemeanors in GA carry a maximum...
Do I need a lawyer for a driving on a suspended license case if the license is already reinstated?
I got pulled over for driving with my high beams on in Powder Springs GA. After running my license they told me that it was suspended due to a failure to appear. I honestly didn’t know my license was suspended but they arrested me and I spent the night in jail. I bailed out and later realized It was actually for a $650 suspended registration ticket that I hadn’t yet paid(because I couldn’t afford it). So long story short I got everything straightened out, ticket reduced and paid, and got my license reinstated prior to my upcoming court date on January 3rd. I’ve had my license suspended before for failure to pay tickets but I always knew and took care of it, I’ve never been to court for it before. What should I expect when I go to court? Do I actually need a lawyer or should I be fine on my own? Thanks in advance!
You definitely need an attorney. Driving with a suspended license can carry jail time and further suspension of license....
