I got a 3rd dui. Can I transfer my jail time and probation from MN to FL. Or should I do the jail time first?
Its not a felony DUI. I just want to move as far as I can so I don't get in anymore trouble. To many bad influences around here. My wife and I just want a fresh start. Also what would happen if I made the move without permission from my PO? I have permission from the judge to leave state for work. Because my job requires me to leave for long periods of time. But I don't know if that allows me to move altogether.
Whatever you do...do not leave the state without permission from your probation officer. Generally, if you want to...
Is it normal for a psych evaluation to be done prior to your being released from the drunk tank? Is this public knowledge?
I
Maybe while you were in custody you gave them a reason to conduct such an evaluation?
I did not blow into a datamaster breathalyzer?
I blew once on the road into a PBT.... Then when I got to the jail they had me blow into another portable breath test. I am being charged with two 4th degree charges for being over a .20. Can this be used against me in court if there is nothing really proving what my actual level was?
A pbt is not admissible in court. If they did not give you a datamaster test, blood or urine test then the only way...
Can I get a reduction in my fee to purchase my license back after a DUI?
When I was 18, I received a DUI in May of 2015. I hired a lawyer and completed all of the requirements made by the judge, like going to a One-Day DUI Class and paying legal fees. The only thing I didn't do was purchase my license back for $700. I am almost 20 now and a college student about to go on a six-month missions trip overseas where I will not be employed. When I get back, I will still be in college and unable to afford the fee, but I will need a license. Is there any way I can get this fee reduced/waived? I have not gotten into any legal trouble since my DUI, if that makes a difference. Would I have to go to court again?
I'm afraid not. It's an unforgiving administrative cost.
Is there a way to keep my drivers license after being jailed for a DUI until I am formally charged?
I was driving home to MN from CO. I had been drinking & pulled up to a pump at a gas station in Nebraska & had passed out. I was woken up by police & then jailed. After going before a judge the next afternoon, I was given two court dates I must appear for. These court dates are 8hrs away from me & I don't know how I can possibly get there without having a valid drivers license.
You must file a Petition for judicial review within 30 days of your license revocation. A hearing will be scheduled...
Can a traffic accident be a basis for reasonable articulable suspicion of DUI/DWI, or is much more needed to determine that?
What is all needed to prove a reasonable articulable suspicion in DUI/DWI accident case? If there are no reasonable suspicion, how far can an officer expand the scope of the traffic accident stop when investigating possible crimes?
It would depend on the totality of the circumstances. Perhaps the officer would note an odor of alcohol or something...
If I move from CA to MN, will a DUI conviction from CA be placed on my MN DMV record?
If so, how long until the conviction disappears from the public record? Also, I've completed everything I need to do in CA to get my full license back (including finishing the 3 years of the SR-22). Will the MN DMV have me jump through extra hoops to get a MN license (like take MN's alcohol class)? (I've listed the question as being asked in the city I'm looking into moving to in order to get the attention of MN attorneys, even though I'm still in CA).
A dui on your record never "disappear" from your record. Your CA. DUI conviction will be on your record. Get your...
