Is job hunting considered by judge in regards to terminating probation early?
I was placed on a 2-year probation for a DUI. I have paid all my fines, taken all the assessments, and have also been drug/alcohol tested twice and have always come back clean. I have served over 1/2 of my probation time. I am graduating with my masters and have started job hunting and thus far probation has seemed to be a problem with some companies. I have a good relationship with my probation officer and she gave me a form to fill out in order to see if the judge will terminate my probation. She said be as specific as possible. I am also interviewing in Texas because my mom has cancer and needs to move to a warmer climate (and of course I want to move with my family). Please advise how to best summarize my situation to the court and how such motions are often considered by the judge.

Is it possible to petition early removal of my interlock?
Interlock and yellow tags are currently part of the requirements for my driving privileges. I have had plates and interlock installed for 9 months. I have also served 11 months of my 2 year probation, and have completed all of the requirements of my probation.
Depends on the specific section of DUI you were convicted of. You can always try. It is possible as long as you are...
What's the worst that could happen if I was found guity of a DUI?
Along with driving w/o OMVI, while under suspension, DUS (12 point) suspension, & no plates on the car. I'm taking a lot of different meds for depression.
The worst that can happen depends on the number of prior OVIs in the past and whether or not you had submitted to a...
What should I do? What could it be?
Over two years ago I got my second OVI while still finishing up probation for my first 6 months earlier. I screwed myself. I did the car breathalyzer, the anklet, the house arrest, the community service, the random drug tests, the year of probation, the 10 days in jail. All that's left is renewing my license after the two year suspension. I went down to pay my fines. Warrant block from a failure to appear 2 years ago. No bond. I'm freaking out. When I got these charges I was living in my mom's basement, with no job, and a bum. Now I'm living on my own, had a job for a year, have bills and an actual life. I called my attorney and he said I need to go to AA and get signatures to prove I haven't been drinking and then call him to handle it. Doesn't my life itself show that I'm doing better?
Unfortunately the judge is going to want more proof than just your word. It sounds like you have made some important...
Could I go to jail for not being able to afford my daily breathalyzer for probation?
I was involved in a DUI a year or so back. Recently I was sentenced to one additional year of probation, during which I would have to take a daily home breathalyzer. I am a single dad with 2 children, bills, and rent. I only make a little over minimum wage, and am being asked to pay $360 every month for this test. That is in addition to my rent, the bills, caring for my children, court, lawyers, and several other tests the court require me to take. It has become extremely hard to pay for this simply because I do not have the money.. So my question is, could I go to jail because I can not pay for my daily test? Is there an alternative that they are not informing me about? Thank you.
Any time you have a court ordered stipulation of your probation, you are required to comply. If you fail to comply,...

He needs to retain a good OVI attorney as soon as possible. If he does not have an attorney prior to the arriagnment (...
Is missing information on Ohio BMV 2255 form enough to appeal an ALS suspension?
The BMV 2255 form given to me (gold copy) is missing the Time of Refusal or Test and VIN #. Is this sufficient enough to appeal the ALS suspension? I realize there could be many other issues with the form, but these are 2 things obviously not on there.
Certainly you need a lawyer for an OVI. You can appeal the ALS for sure. Whether you'd win that hearing is unknowable....
