Once my DUI fines are paid can I get my license back despite a warrant?
I got a DUI in Florida several years ago and my Alabama license was suspended. I followed the initial procedures and got my license back originally. I later missed a payment on my fines and it was suspended again. I had moved back to Alabama and was doing my probation by phone as I was a first time offender and low risk. I thought my probation was complete and it appears it wasn't because I have a Florida warrant for failure to complete my probation. Any time I've had a traffic violation Alabama police have noted the warrant and told me to take care of it when I can. I'm about to pay the last of my old FL fines which in theory should release my license to be reinstated in Alabama. Will they block my reinstatement in FL based on the warrant? I plan to take care of it after getting my DL.
I am not licensed in Florida, so out of respect for any answer offered by an experienced attorney licensed in Florida...
I was arrested for a dui. but im almost sure i had a concussion. i know i hadnt been drinking for at least 3 hours, alabama
my truck was totalled and my head went through the drivers side window, i am going to the doctor tomorrow. in the holding cell i went to sleep for about an hour and when i woke up i knew something was seriously wrong with me. i asked all the officers to see a doctor and they just laughed. i blew the breathalizzer 3 times as hard as i could, but the officer just said i was doing something wrong (i would assume that means i passed but he was just sure i was drunk) i know for a fact that i smelled like alchohal, because i stink of it after i stop drinking(it just comes out of my pores) i think i have serious brian damage or somekind of injury to my head, i still cant see straight and its been 2 days since my arrest. its amazing to me after a wreck that bad that they can refuse medical assist.
I am unsure what your question is...is it can they refuse you medical assistance in a county jail? Please retain an...
I got pulled over and arrested for DUI in a rental car out of state last October and the court date is coming up.
I'm wondering what to expect at the court house and what my argument would be. I'm currently in school and taking care of my granny so i don't have a job so I'm wondering about fine and weather i will have to keep flying to Alabama to handle this matter. Also I'm on summery probation in California will that affect this case.
I'm assuming you didn't settle your case in city or district Court and your case is now in Circuit Court. The judge...
Can I be held liable if my underage roommates throw a party when I am not home?
My roommate (who is 18) is planning on throwing a party tonight despite my request for him not to. I am 21 and do not want to be held liable if, God forbid, someone leaves the party after drinking and kills someone while driving. I will not be at home during the party because I do not want to run the risk of getting in trouble. If the cops show up to the party, will I get in trouble for providing alcohol to minors, even if I'm not even there? (I did not buy any of the alcohol for this party, either.) If someone underage drinks and drives, will I be responsible since the party took place at my house?
You should not have a minor roommate. As the homeowner you have liability.
Second DUI in AL. First was about 15 years ago. I was asleep in the car. What am I facing.
I was asleep in the car behind my job where I had parked earlier that evening. I hit a wooden fence that was in front of my car. Car was on when police arrived. I was in drivers seat.
There is a lot here that needs to be answered. Did you blow, what was the reading? Did you perform any field sobriety...
Does an officer writing the wrong address on a ticket make it invalid?
I got a citation for a minor in possession of alcohol last night and the officer wrote the wrong address on the ticket. He wrote that I was drinking a beer in front of apartment 36 in my complex, but my complex doesn't have an apartment 36. It was actually apartment 1035. Does this affect the ticket in any way or do I still have to pay it?
It will make no difference whatsoever. This is simply called "scrivener error" and the fact that a wrong address, wrong...
Can a wallet be searched after surrendering it post arrest at the Jail?
after an arrest for public intoxication, i was taken to jail and after surrendering my personal property at the jail, my wallet was searched and a false ID was found. I was then charged with possession of a forged instrument. I was not read my rights at any time and I was not disturbing anyone when I was asked if I had been drinking as I stood outside of a local bar. I am 18.
Yes, a wallent can be searched upon entry to a jail or correctional facility. There are no Fourth Amendment protections...
