I am desperately I need of help!! DMV is trying to take my license from a charge in 2009???
I was arrested in WV back in 2009 for a DUI. I was convicted through magistrate promptly for a reckless operation. My DMV trial was continued numerous (not because of me). I went to the DMV in a snow storm with my attorney and no one told us they were not showing up. I FINALLY went to DMV in February 2012. They told me I would hear back in a week. Yesterday, on the 17th of March of 2014, I got a letter in the mail. They are suspending my license this Monday, I will go to treatment, and get a Blow & Go installed after treatment os completed. I did blow a .204, and of course it is irresponsible, but I am desperate. I feel like it is worth a shot to ask. My attorney advised me to take the suspension. However, if I could fight it, I will. PLEASE help me!
Unfortunately, you are going to have to enroll and complete dui safety treatment course / classes, pay reinstatement...
Arrested for a DUI with a negative breathalyzer
I was driving for work (class A truck) and went through a yellow light that turned red. When the officer pulled me over he immediately asked if I had been drinking. Which I denied and explained that I was returning from Michigan. He did a field sobriety test and said I was "wobbly" on one leg which I explained I had been driving 10 hrs. I had a negative breathalyzer and he arrested me anyways, impounded the truck and was held without bond 17 hours. I demanded a blood test. I am now out on PR awaiting trial for a DUI. How is this legal and how do I proceed? What's the likelyhood of this being thrown out and can I counter sue? Since I cannot work until this is cleared up.
When you say the breathalyzer test was negative, what do you mean? Was it 0.0%? Did you give a urine sample for drugs?...
If first time aggravated dui plead down in court to non aggravated will WV DMV reduce requirements to reinstate license?
Case was over a year ago and moved out of state shortly after. Do not plan on moving back to WV but feel I'd have to for the 9 month ignition interlock. If case was plead down in court will DMV hear the case?
Short answer: No. Sincerely, Harley O. Wagner, Esq.
MD required me to do the 90 day alcohol classes, i live in WV for over 3 years, this was 5 years ago, I cannot get my license WV

What do i do, can i get an appeal? My license is revoked/suspended until i can get this done. i have done it twice and they won't accept the information (MD DMV)
Call MD DMV. Tell them you no longer reside there and ask them what you need to file to get the hold removed.
