I had my last name changed recently and I have 2 DWI's (6 & 7 years ago). Will they show up on my record for the military?
I had my name changed to my fathers last name in the last year. I want to join either the marines or the army. With that said, I'm afraid that these are going to hold me back. The real ? is "Do I have to even put that these were on my record"? I'm wondering this because in some articles, I've read that after 5 years... it doesn't show up on one's criminal record anymore. I don't know if this is true or not. I don't want to lie about anything, but if I don't have to say anything, I would certainly like to not say anything. Please... Help me come to a conclusion with this ? Thank you so much whomever reads this.
In my experiences the armed forces and other government entities do a very extensive background check. If they ask...
Inquiry for help with license denial. My husband received 2 DWIs over 10 years ago in Arkansas. In 2013 he received a third.
All three were received while living in Arkansas. He has completed all necessary steps and been re-instated his license back in that state. However, we moved recently to Missouri (he owns and operates a business here) and was issued a 10 year denial for a drivers license in the state of MO. His job requires a lot of time driving back and forth to visit with clients and to conduct his business. We are in process of getting the first 2 expunged but AR law allows the decision to seal very up in the air, depending on what judge/prosecutor you draw for the case. If these are ruled to not be expunged how will my husband be legal to drive. His AR license is legal for another 4 years but upon renewal I worry it will be denied because of the MO hold on the National Drivers Register.
He may be eligible for a limited driving privilege. These rules just changed in March of this year. He will be required...

I got 2 DUIs in the same month but different counties. Both require me to take SATOP. Do I need to take 2 courses of SATOP?
First was a single car accident. Blew .13 Second was traffic violation. Refused breathalizer but admitted to having a drink earlier.
Generally, you can take one SATOP for both pending cases. The reason is that the SATOP screening will take into...
Requesting court appointed attorney before first DUI hearing?
Are you allowed to request a court appointed attorney before your first hearing by calling the courthouse? Or are you supposed to show up to court that day and then request one from the judge? I'm in a financial slump and hiring a private lawyer would be hard on my other obligations.
This depends on the jurisdiction you are in. You should call your local Bar Association (as in Attorney Bar...
I was arrested in 5/15/2011, not charged until Nov. 2013 on what would be my 3rd conviction if convicted (yes I know)
My question are in regards to some errors in the police reports that I have looked over: 1) I see a PBT test of .131 on the report (I never took that test) 2) Clothing description on report does not match what I was wearing 3) says I attempted to take breathalyzer failed attempt marked as refusal (I did in fact outright refused test) 4) In one part employed as sales representative, in another report stated I work at Chili's as a server 4) I was given SFST's the two I am concerned with are WAL and OLS I was in 3 1/2 heels when test was administered on sloping grade. 5) Stated that I was at Chili's when in fact I was somewhere else entirely 6) Checkpoint stop no warning car.....So any thoughts
Your question raises a number of issues. Speaking very broadly, there may be issues of proof because of some of the...
