Will my drunk in public charge be dismissed?
I had a sudden and horrible reaction to medication while walking my kids down the street in a stroller. I fell many times and my speech became slurred. I wouldn't let the neighbors help me due to the onset of confusion so the police were called. I admitted that I had had 1-2 beers and I certainly looked the part but no breathalyzer or blood test was given. I spent the night in jail and was charged with public drunkenness. Do I have a fighting chance if I show the court my prescription and have my parents to attest to my 2 beers tops story? I have never been in any trouble, am prior service, 100 % disabled through VA and the medicine was prescribed for my kidney infection.
Hope so, best to ask your lawyer none of us have your case.
DUI reduced to reckless driving.
I'm a nurse that was charged with dui with hopes that I can get it reduced to reckless driving. I read in a previous post that this is only a traffic violation and not a criminal offense. Is this correct and it will not show up on a background check.
Depending on how the background check is run, this may certainly show up. I would advise a criminal defense lawyer who...
How do I remove a ticket from my driving record
In March of 2015 I was arrested for DUI I did not have any thing to drink. I had an alcoholic beverage spilt on me so I smelled like alocohol.

Can a DUI in one state violate probation in another?
My son's dad (now estranged) is on probation in GA for family violence and cruelty to children. He is now in SC (where my son and I are) and was arrested for a DUI in January. A local police officer ran an NCIC when I filed a report because he drove by my house, and the officer said that my ex has a warrant in GA for assault & battery and that he is violating probation by being here. My ex has court today, and I was wondering how this might play out. He has a long list of priors, including a DUI here over 10 years ago, multiple A&B, public drunk, and multiple CDV. I also know that he just got fired from his job, so he will not be able to pay the $1,022 fine. He was bonded out on a surety bond after spending one night in jail after his arrest.
Yes. Probation says "VIOLATE NO LAW" not just laws of state Xyz.... now will the state ever find out about it??? ---...
Business' request for ABL denied due to partner's past DUI. Any laws I can cite for protest? (Restaurant)
We're opening a new business and have applied for our alcohol by the drink/beer & wine licenses. We have been denied on the grounds of moral character [61-2-100(d)] and when I called the office, the rep said it was because one of the partners has two DUIs. In reality he -had- 2 DUIs, one of which was lessened to reckless driving. This leaves only one. He has since quit drinking for going on 5 years now. He manages a bar and grill now and has no problems staying sober and lawful. Also, he is ONLY a financial investor, not an operator. He will not work there at all, in any capacity. Are there any law(s) that we can cite on the protest that will help get the denial reversed when they send it to the SCDOR legal team for review? Also, any advice for the situation or it's expediency? Thank you
Good questions. I would retain a licensing attorney or business attorney in Beufort to help you on this issue. It may...
