What do i do for an out of state DUI
I live in Massachusetts but i was visiting my daughter in Maryland when i was pulled over for a DUI. I plead guilty at the out of state hearing and they suspended my license for a year. On the plea form there are various restrictions such as needing a device installed in my car and only being able to drive to my doctor apartments, to get the device re-calibrated and to AA meetings. Massachusetts has since sent me a letter stating my license is revoked for a year. Do the restrictions set by Maryland transfer to Massachusetts?
They should, you should call the lawyer who represented you in Maryland to find out what to do here in Massachusetts....
After my probation is over, will it show on background check?
I was pulled over for marked lane violation. I volunteered for sobriety test, which I marginally failed. Then I was arrested by state police and taken to police station. There I took breathalyzer test and results were 0.13. This was my first time being charged with anything. I am debating if I should go to trial or take a plea. If as a first offender I take the plea (24D program) what impact will that have.
It depends what you mean by background check. Even if you are acquitted, the entry 'admin per se" will always appear on...
Can I get this DUI off of my driving record? Expunged? How can I get this driving job?
I received a DUI about 6 years ago. Due to me being young and nervous I did the breathalyzer at the station. This resulted in my lawyer getting me a continuance without a finding. I did everything that I needed complete in a timely fashion, since then I have not been in trouble for anything (or before that). Literally just this DUI. Recently I came across a driving job that I wanted and needed. Then the DUI popped its head up since its on my driving record.
It will never come off your driving record.
See above , I am trying to fight an OUI case
If I was not informed that I could obtain an attorney before providing a field sobriety test and breathelizer , can that help in my defense ?
Possibly. If you have a lawyer, you should speak to him or her about this. If you don't have a lawyer then you should...
How do I get my insurance to see i was not gulity vs guilty, Change records to not show me as a felon, get my CDL back somehow?
In 2000 arrested for DUI, resulted in CWOF. Then in 2014 arrested for DUI, found not guilty but lost my CDL for 10yrs to life, insurance $$$ - chg me as if i was guilty and considered a FELON now. Lawyer said CDL loss is nothing he can change, the commonwealth considers this 2 DUI's so loss of CDL (Megan's law). But 1st was CWOF, 2nd not guilty?? Been to a couple attorneys and they say they cant do anything??? But then I have heard from others that someone who had 3 DUI's still had their CDL. How is this?? Also need to get my records to not show me as a felon? Spent alot of $$$ with alot of promises to get this taken care of but it remains the same. My CDL was my livelihood and now havent worked in years.
From your information, you are definitely NOT a "felon", unless there are other guilty findings on your record in Mass....
What can be done so my insurance doesnt go up, my record shows I am a felon when I am not and get my CDL back
In 2000 got arrested for DUI in Massachusetts, went to court and the judgement was a CWOF . Then in 2014 was arrested again for a DUI in Massachusettes (asleep with the car parked, but keys in ignition, etc..basically a cop trying to say something happened that didnt) anyhow went to court and was found not guilty. I am told I am now considered a FELON. How is that when I was found NOT GUILTY in a court w/jurors. My insurance has gone up, I lost my CDL and I cant go for many jobs because I am a FELON. Is there a way to correct this? Because if you are found not guilty but still end up with the consequences of someone guilty then that was a waste of $10k with a lawyer.
Your cod from 2000 should not have any effect on your cdl license. You should get in touch with an attorney who deals...
Is it typical for probation to keep you in the US despite having travel permission to go to other states? Can this be modified?
I was arrested for DUI in September and pled to a CWOF. I have completed all requirements and am just waiting for this case to be dismissed. I have an event I would like to attend in Canada, but my PO says he cannot give me permission to travel internationally.
You can ask the probation officer to bring you in front of the judge and ask the judge to give you permission. The...
