How can a foreigner can fix a missing court for DUI from outside the country?
Hi there! Well here is what happened to me: I was arrested for DUI in Laplace LA back in 2008 and I paid my bail on the very same night so I was released then, lucky I had cash on me.. But I did not had a valid drivers license, I am from Brazil, they did gave me a court date but my ticket to come back to Brazil was already with me, so I've returned to my home country without going to this court. I have no other problems with the police, never been arrested before even here in my country. Now I'm still in Brazil since then and just now I have a job offer to Canada and I hear that they can arrest me at the airport because there is probably a warrant on me on the US. How can I fix this mess from here!! It is possible to go to the consulate of US in Brazil to fix it? Help me please! Thanks
I suggest speaking to your Immigration attorney - but my feeling is that Canada is not going to arrest you for a DUI in...
What is the usual outcome from a first offence OWI in Indiana (hamilton co.).... without having any other previous arrests?
Pulled over after a concert in traffic. Reason stated was I didn't use my turn signal, which I did. I was not belligerent. I felt fine to drive. Felt as if I passed all of the field tests (line walking, touching finger tips, etc.) After a breathalyzer, the officer said she had reason to believe I was intoxicated and stated she needed to take me to the jail for another (larger) breathalyzer... which showed I was over the legal limit.
It is always difficult to give an answer to this type of question in this forum. A lawyer would need more information...
DUI but not pulled over?
I was arrested for a DUI (1st time for me) while I was outside of my car but was followed for a brief period. I failed the breathalyzer but had also just thrown up right before the test, which I've read would alter the test. In addition, my Miranda Rights were never given to me, my car was never looked at and my friends were not interviewed. Do I have a shot of getting this dismissed?
People frequently ask about getting a case dismissed without giving anywhere near the facts that we need to provide an...
Can I be accused of rape when I was intoxicated?
So I was intoxicated over at another person's house but they were intoxicated too but they started to fall unconscious and I didn't realize they were until a bit afterwards so I stopped but I didn't have sex with them. They found specimen inside of them though. Idk what to do bc I wasn't thinking bout it bc I was impaired from the drugs. I didn't have intentions in having sex either before I arrived there sober. I just went over to party with them, nothing more. I never committed a crime before this either and I'm young with a good background. And I already have the love of my life. I'm starting to develop mental problems bc of this and me thinking bout my future. What can I do and will the prosecutor go through with it?
I would not post anything else on any public forums and immediately hire an attorney or ask for a public defender.
I signed a contract while intoxicated.
Is this contract binding? A sales rep for a security company took advantage of my will I was intoxicated and even had drinks with me on 2 separate occasions. I was not properly informed what I was getting too and lied to my wife saying installation was free. Not the case, Since I didn't cancel within 3 days which bidden me to a 5 year contract, which I was not aware of due to my condition. The company is AMP Securities if you want to look up other complains with the BBB.
You should consult with an Indiana Business Attorney to discuss your situation. Your assertion of a lack of capacity...
Will I be included as a named defendant should my husband get a DUI, be involved in an accident while intoxicated?
My husband is 70 years old and insists on drinking with a buddy and then driving his car. I do not want to lose everything I own should he be involved in a serious accident or get a DUI. In the state of Indiana I know driving while intoxicated is a serious crime. Please tell me worse case scenario so I can let him know what he is doing.
You will not be a defendant in his DUI case unless you do something to cause him to drive drunk, and even then it is...
