Judge Patrick Butler today also scheduled an arraignment on April 3 over the objections of Pelham's attorneys, who wanted a new preliminary hearing for Pelham since he has now been restored to competency.

What to expect after a 1st offense DUI
Someone blows a .089, and it's their 1st offense. They have already filed for a DMV administrative hearing, and enrolled in alcohol classes. How long until you hear back about the hearing date? Do you get any type of license while you are waiting? What can you expect from the courts? Retained an attorney, but wanted to get a range of opinions.
You are probably eligible to enter a deferment program for first time offenders. Hire a DWI a attorney.
I have a new " Smart Start " interlock device . There has been a couple of times when I have drinks the night before.
Even if the device has never locked or show "violation" , would the machine report some BAC ? How about If i have a beer ,?wait a while and then blow? Would it be reported even if the screen shows "analyzing / then pass? (Does not show violations)
If the machine shows a pass, you've passed. That said, it's incredibly foolish to be drinking alcohol before attempting...
If the device says pass" there is no problem right?
I had drinks earlier and waited some time , then I blew and the machine said " pass" Will there appear even a little BAC,?
Did you blow into a PAS machine or device? PAS stands for Preliminary Alcohol Screening device. Some of the machines...
Can I get a license in Montana even though I have a revoked/expired Colorado License after DWAI charge in 2011?
My Colorado license was revoked in summer of 2011 after a DWAI charge. I am no longer on probation but I haven't reinstated my license because I can't afford insurance/reinstatement free in CO. The revoked license expired in summer of 2014. I'm considering moving to Montana and want to get a license, can I do so despite having the revoked/expired license in CO? Does the fact that the license has expired effect its status as revoked in CO?
In the last decade there has been a great trend where states not only share their driving record information (for...
Can i fight an MIP for misconduct?
So i was giving a MIP for a beer in my pocket on the CU boulder campus. I was waliking a very inebriated friend home because it seemed to me he couldn't get home on his own. when we arrived at his dorm cops stoped us and sat us down for the reason that we seemed drunk. The CU PD thought i had a beer in my pocket and when asked me to take it out i refused. So when the asked me to empty my pockets so i reached into both front pockets i pulled out my phone and wallet and upon doing so i was handcuff and promptly searched where they found the beer in my back pocket and gave me a MIP. Also when they asked me to sign the ticket, i refused and they told me I would go to jail and i still refused to when they gave me the ticket and sent me home. I want to fight this.
Obviously there are constitutional protections against illegal stops and seizures. You may have an argument to...
Can I possess a firearm on unsupervised probation?
I got a DWAI with a low BAC. There were no drugs involved. I do not do or possess illegal substances. I quickly satisfied all the conditions of the court and am now on unsupervised probation. When I got transfered to unsupervised probation (for which I have documentation in the form of a judges order) I was told by my attorney that I no longer had any restrictions and that my only condition was to remain law abiding. I am an avid hunter, and, in the interest of remaining law abiding, want to make sure that what my attorney told me was true and that I am legally able to possess a firearm. I have no restrictions or conditions which have not been completed and am otherwise legally able to purchase so I imagine I am good to go?
If you were convicted of a felony, the federal government prohibits you from firearm possession.
Curious on what I should be looking for defense wise to go back into court for two cases stemming from one original.
Jefferson Cnty. CO. Charged with DWAI (4th in lifetime), plea bargain for inmate/outmate w/ 1 yr. susp. jail. 2 yrs. probation, fines, etc... Did 90 days WR, and lasted about 2 mos. in ISP via. Intervention in golden. Caught charge in Bldr. Cnty. for Driving Under revocation. Had an emotional breakdown. Did not complete probation. 5 mos. later, I come home to turn myself in. Now am facing a "3rd degree escape charge from misdemeanor" and the original charge of DWAI. Id prefer to do straight time at this point, but how little time can I do w/o probation. There are many small details in this matter which made this case incredibly hard for me to succeed...
What you should be looking for defense wise, is a defense lawyer.
