Help, I was not driving, have been accused of DUI, I have not driven for 8 mts. I need answers in what happens with the DOT
In Jan 2012 I was in a alchol related accendent. We hit another car and FLIPPED downed a 25ft incline. I apparently said I was driving, I had broke the window out with my head also lost control of my bowels. The driver nor the wittness that pulled us from the wreck have not been questioned by a lawer or the police. The county atty wants me to plead guilty to public intox, but carry the plenty of a OWI my lawter now thinks I should take it. I feel I have already paid by the night in jail and the fact that this DWI will be on my driving record for the next 12 years. I have never been in trouble and that night we had just went to dinner after being sick all week and taking meds with alchoal. The county atty knows I was not driving also the magerstat the sheriff office also knows.
If the DOT has not already revoked your driving privileges for a test failure or refusal, then a plea to public...
I was in a accendent involing another car, I volenteered that I was driving as the driver was drunk. I blew a .103. Over the limit of .008. The other driver and witnesses knew I was not driving, as they pulled me out of the truck that was upside down in a ditch of about 25ft.. They were not interview by the police as it was a very nasty night snow and ice. I have a lawyer that will not return my calls and I am getting nervous. I do not know why I said I was driving, I do belive I thought it was best at the time. The driver has not said anything to the police but will if needed. how do I get myself out of this with out the loss of my liences? I was charged with a DUI and spent the night in jail.
You need to contact an attorney as soon as possible. You need to discuss your situation with someone who can talk to...
I'm from Illinois and I received an OWI for marijuana in Iowa. I'm just trying to keep my career from being jeopardized by this. Are there any plea agreement opinions besides OWI prosecutors are willing to accept to prevent reporting a DUI to Illinois? I can not lose my license due to a suspension right now!!!
Yes, it is mandatorily reported. Your license will automatically be revoked in IA, then an abstract will be sent to...
I got off work around 11 p.m. and headed home to Illinois to try and get home from the Holidays. Upon entering Illinois I got pulled over (Admittedly going 19 MPH Over Speed limit) in a rush to get home. He stated my car smelled like "Marijuana" and demanded I get out. He searched my vechicle and found a pill bottle that had shake under my prescription pills (it was a special unmarked bottle because in my culture you can't take pills) I didn't know it was there because I share the bottle with a roommate, but he arrested me and charge me with a DUI (After doing a sobriety test, which I passed). Obviously I am trying to fight this. There was also an open liquor bottle in the trunk I share the car with my sister who is 22 (I'm 20) and told them this but they charged me with a PAULA as well
Not sure what your question is but if you plan to fight it you will need a lawyer.
The officer never tested my drink, or breathalized me, but wrote me a ticket for possession of alcohol under the legal age

I received a PAULA ticket in Dubuque Iowa last night and was wondering if it will ever come off my record?
i blew a .054 at a party and was told i could either go to court or pay it online
Who is PAULA and why did you receive her ticket? Before wondering if it will ever come off your record, why not retain...
All fines and terms were completed at the time. Not arrests or tickets since then.
Unfortunately, Minnesota currently does not allow DWI convictions to be expunged, although the attitude toward...
