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.

I have a felony OUI (3rd offense) hanging over me. How long does the DA have to indict me (its been 3 months). Will the DA deal
I believe I could supply the DA (Kennebec) with some information unrelated to my case. These would be drug related. I know of one specific individual that could more than likely lead the DA towards narcotics dealers. He has stolen property (tools $1000 worth) from me and I have the proof. I am hoping to use this before I have him arrested. I know for a fact he smokes pot, I strongly suspect he also does heroin. He actually has pointed out a "dealers" house to me.
Statute of limitations for a felony DUI in Maine is 3 to 6 years. I'm not sure what the drug sales case has to do with...
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...

Why was I issued a conditional license (i.e zero tolerance) when my infraction occurred in 1994?
Arrested for suspicion of O.U.I in 1994. I had a plea bargain arrangement with the D.A to serve 7 days in jail and pay a fine of $500 and there would be no further consequences. When I moved back to Maine I then had to pay a $50 dollar reinstatement fee (which I did) and then received a letter from the Secretary of State saying I was zero tolerance until April 2022. At the time of my case I lived in Georgia so I had no need to reinstate my license in Maine at that time so I did not. Now I have to wait 10 more years from my reinstatement in 2012 to be considered not zero tolerance? In essence a 28 year conditional license since I drove on my out of state license in Maine every summer.
Because you waited to pay the reinstatement fee. If you got caught driving in Maine prior to paying the restoration fee...
