Felony DUI "Great Bodily Injury" License Suspension Issue (South Carolina)
I was convicted of Felony DUI (Great Bodily Injury) on Sept. 17, 2009. I was sentenced to 30 days house arrest and 5 years of Probation suspended on 15 years imprisonment. My probation end date is Sept. 17, 2014 and have no issues regarding probation. My main concern is my Drivers License. Per South Carolina statute a persons Drivers License can only be suspended for the time of imprisonment plus 3 years. Also in this statue it says ; " This period of incarceration shall not include any portion of a suspended sentence such as probation, parole, supervised furlough, or community supervision." I've been to the DMV and they have told me my license is suspended until 2027 and only a court order can change that. How is this possible and what are my options pursuant to South Carolina Law?
It seems as if the DMV considers the suspended sentence as controlling on them. I think you should get a local...

What do I do if I was arrested for dui, and I wasn't driving?
Friends of ours came in the club and told me she was wrecked in a ditch!! So I come out and see her car in the ditch with the lights on! I run to her and she's drunk behind the wheel. So I put her in "the car I was in" and a friend of ours dropped her off. Ok, the police pulls up and see me trying to get the car out the ditch, I told them what happened and they said ok. Literally ok!! We were waiting on a tow truck that the officers called for, a state trooper pulls up asking the officers questions then he came to me. So I asked him politely why are you asking me for my ID? That's when he said he wants to do the drinking test, on me.. I refused, cause yes I was drinking, I was at the club, but I was not driving at all!! He locked me up, I still had to help her get the car out the pound, and they took and suspended my license!! I had a lawyer and he pushed my court date back, but he didnt want to work with me because I lost my job at the time for not having a ready reliable ride everyday, so I've been waiting for my court date and it hasn't came yet.. it happened on May 22 2016 and I went to the DMV and they said that my license is suspended with a $100 reinstatement fee!!

What are my chances of getting a DUI reduced?
Pulled over at 130 am. I didn't do very well on the field sobriety tests. I did refuse the breathalyzer. I cooperated with the officer. What are my chances of having this reduced to reckless driving or dismissed?
Honestly? Low to none. The test was videotaped, most likely. That with the officer saying you appeared drunk is all it...
