If I have a DUI in VT but have not had my court date yet w/my license suspended, can i transfer my license to CT before it is?
I have a residency established in CT and VT.
You can always try (mind you it is doubtful). Downside though is if you are successful you may end up being suspended...
My ex got DUI#6 in Vt. He had plea deal for 18 month DUI court program, but was not accepted into program. Will he go to jail?
My ex got DUI #6 in Chittenden County while on probation for DUI #5 in Windsor County. Chittenden and Windsor gave him a plea deal for violation of DUI #5 and for his sentence for DUI #6. That deal was that my ex could do an 18 month outpatient program called the Windsor County DUI court. Well, my ex violated probation at least one time that I know of, since the deal. There might even have been more instance of probation violation. At any rate, my ex was never accepted into the DUI court program. He had a status conference with judge in Chittenden County this past week. I see he now has a court date in September for a "sentencing hearing". Does this mean that he will be going back to prison? Chittenden orginally wanted him to do 2 to 6 years for DUI #6. Also, this person is a convicted violent felon in Florida with a lengthy history of domestic violence, DUI"s, a firearm charge/conviction and dozens of violation of probation and/or house arrest. Also, why is the sentencing hearing 6 weeks away if he has already admitted guilt? Shouldn't he just have gone directly to prison since he didn't follow the terms of the plea deal?
the likely reason that the sentencing hearing is six weeks down the road is that I am sure a presentence investigation...
Does it make sense for me to hire a lawyer or should I just plea guilty?
I was arrested for a dui in Vermont, this is my first offense. From my understanding, Vermont does not have a work permitted or hardship license. Is it even worth it for me to fight for it. I'm not contesting that I was speeding or over the limit, I just want to be able to drive to work. Like I said this is my first dui and I don't know the process, I'm willing to pay any fines I have to but I don't want to receive jail time. I'm just feeling so overwhelmed.
In response to your question and with my personal inclination, I would highly reccommend that you hire a Criminal...
How long can I expect DUI classes to take? Can I transfer classes from Colorado?
While in Colorado I was convicted of DWAI. I have priors. Colorado has a lifetime lookback so priors from 12 and 15 years ago count for both sentencing and for DUI class length. If I can move back to Vermont how long can I expect DUI classes to be? My BAC was 0.09. Also will I be able to transfer the 6 months of classes I already took in Colorado?
You only need to post a question once!!!

This precise question was just posted in the Pennsylvania forum, word for word. Where did this occur?
Will someone with his 6th DUI, out on probation for DUI#5, get prison time in Vermont?
My ex just got DUI #6 in Vermont. He just got DUI #5 in VT on June 26, 2015, so about 6 months ago. This is his 3rd DUI in VT. He has one in PA and two in FLorida. In Florida, his license was permanently revoked for DUI#4. He is currently on probation from DUI#5 and has violated 3 times by drinking, driving w/ no license, harassing others, violating curfew, missing visit to probation, etc. He was put on Strict community supervision Nov. 1, 2015 and given curfew, no alcohol, treatment, etc. He also is a convicted felon in FL with domestic violence/aggravated assault w/ a firearm and battery on a person over 65 charges which he did prison time for. He has a history of violating probation and/or house arrest more than a dozen times in FL on top of his VT violations. He also has 2 other domestic violence convictions in FL. Given his extensive criminal history, his inability to stay sober or follow conditions of release, do you feel he will be charged as a habitual offender and be given real prison time? He is currently in VT prison waiting until the end of Feb. for his VOPhearing. He has a $50,000 bond. His probation officer plans to use EVERYTHING against him.
Possibly. Your ex needs to speak with his public defender.
I had a fine from a dui in Vermont. It was sent to a collection agency. Do I need to pay the collections before I get license?
It was a $300.00 fine and was sent to collections over 8 month's ago
Generally speaking most states will put a hold on your license until fines are paid off. Call your DMV to see if this...
