Aurora Law

I just appeared at my DMV hearing, at that hearing, the hearing official told me that i needed to have an interlock device installed in my car if I wanted to reinstate my license. I asked the hearing official if I needed to do anything else and she said no, she said just to install an interlock device for 2 years. This is my first DUI and I have a clean record. My BAC was .156. I know that there are more requirements for a reinstatement of license, but is it possible that the DMV will ask me for more requirements?
Assuming no other problems with your DMV record, you can reinstate your DL 30 days after your hearing with the...
Can an EMT take a blood sample without notifying the driver that he is doing so if the driver is conscious after an accident involving a personal injury but no serious injury? No arrest, only a citation for careless driving.
No. Absent a warrant, there must be consent to draw your blood. The McNeely case is on point and addressed...
My KS lawyer advised I bring my current clean driving record (as the dui is pending) to the CO DMV. He advised I simply state that I don't know where my license is (technically true) and that since I've moved to CO I would like to get a CO license. Is this legal or would this constitute some type of fraud/perjury?
You have to read the questions on the application very carefully. As long as you answer the questions honestly when...
I have a case that I am unable to pay fines and costs for because I just can not afford it. I was told that I could ask for a suspension of some of the fines and costs. It is for a DUI case so I was also told that the judge would be bound by statute to assess certain fines and costs that he/she would not be able to waive or suspend even if he/she wanted to and I was wondering which of the fines and costs can the judge legally not waive so that I can get some idea of what I may possibly be looking at for a total on costs and fines if my motion were to be granted to avoid a hold on my license and or an OJW?
As a former county court judge that presided over DUIs every day for 7 years, all of the fine can be waived or...

Active warrant for misdemeanor dui. I want to turn myself in. Will they drug test me? Arapahoe county
Very doubtful but there are ways to greatly simplify this process. Feel free to office to discuss.
I did not have the money for the alcohol counseling or continued payment on my fine. I met with my probation officer, but after 3 visits she would not see me, didn't have time, couldn't find my case. So I quit going. I moved on with my life and got a job, never got my license, kept out of trouble. Contacted the courts to pay on my fine and was told it was turned over to collection and I would be notified, never received notification. I am gainfully employed with a possibility of promotion soon and was taken in on outstanding warrant Christmas eve. What are my chances of jail? First offense, first everything. I don't even know if I meet with any attorney before my hearing. I want to keep my job now that I have gainful employment. I don't have a license this happened 5 years ago.
Not having all the requirements completed by the end of your probation term is actually a fairly common occurrence, but...
