My husband died 9/3/13 from a fall. He was legally intoxicated. Life insurance didn't pay pay, is it worth using to collect?
It was a $300,000 policy offer by one of our credit cards. I didn't know he was an alcoholic when I took this accident policy. Now they say it's excluded because of his intoxication. This all assumes that it hasn't been too long to try. I got the policy because I am already disabled and getting worse.
$300k, I certainly think it was worth my time to try to fight it.
How would I go about having my OUI in Maine taken off my record
How would I go about having my OUI in Maine taken off my record? It's been over 2 years. (If you look at all the facts I wasn't even driving I took the blame) I went back to school. I received 2 degrees now I have a great job in an environmental lab. (Mind you I'm honestly telling you I never drove and this was my first arrest ever) I would like to travel to Canada next summer but I'm not allowed with this.

Bloodshot eyes grounds for arrest?
I was arrested last night after a cop approached the parked (idling) car I was sitting in and began questioning me on my activities that evening. I am an adult under the legal drinking age and admitting to consuming one beer a few hours ago. The cop used the grounds that my eyes were bloodshot to administer a field sobriety test, which I passed. I was then placed under arrest for "Operating without a license" and taken to the country jail. I was fully cooperative with the officer. I ended up blowing a .04 on the breathalyzer test administered at the jail. I posted bail and left. Are the grounds on which the officer arrested me legitimate, and as this is my first offense is there any chance of the charges being dropped?
An admission of consuming alcohol, the odor of alcohol, and bloodshot eyes are going to be enough to at least detain...

Pleading to a reduced charge (ex. DTE) on a DUI case in maine?
Recently I was arrested for a DUI in Maine. I am a first time offender and have an entirely clean record other than parking tickets which were promptly paid. That being said, my case carries an aggravating factor as I had a BAC of .20. I have not yet had my arraignment. Is there a good case or chance for me to plea to a reduced charge of DTE with ASP?
Your .20 test will make it extremely difficult to obtain a DTE resolution with out some other problem with the case....
