Please define the restrictions to my restricted license.
I just received a restricted license. It has terms on it that state I may not consume any intoxicants, or any drug/alcohol related activity. I received a Dui, which resulted in this. I am not an alcoholic, in fact I drink socially once a month or so. I made a bad judgement call by driving after having a couple glasses of wine at a class reunion. Does this restriction apply to when i am driving or all the time? If i am not driving i do not understand whose business it is. I am not on probation with the court and I am using an interlock system for a year.
You can't drive with any measurable amount of so how in your system. I tell clients 24 hours between drinking and...
How can i keep from losing my license?
I have a restricted license and an interlock on my car. My DUI was in 2007. Despite zero violations from 2008-2013 i was not able to get it off. I couldn't afford an attorney to fight it. Last year i started drinking again. I had 3 violations. They were in Jan, March and October 2014. I blew .03 in my vehicle each time. I received a show cause hearing last week to appear in court today for those violations. I have not had a drink since October 20, 2014. I attend AA every day and see a counselor. The lady at SOS told me I violated my restricted license by drinking in general. I was never told i couldn't drink at all. Drinking and driving no, but where does it state no drinking alcohol period? I have been off probation since 2008.
Your best chance for minimizing the consequences of your recent violations is go hire a good attorney who handles...
Interlock question
I have interlock on my vehicle. I have had it on for nearly 5 years. I was denied my initial request to have it removed in 2012 due to a couple failed tests in 2010. I had zero failed tests and didn't drink at all from November 2010-April 2014. I relapsed in May 2014. I blew a .13 in the interlock. I also had 2 failed tests in October 2014 (both .03). Since then I have not had one drink and go to AA 5 days a week (i have signed sheets). Today I received a letter from the SOS to report in less than 2 weeks for a hearing. Can i lose my license? I work 45 minutes away and my wife and I have 4 children. I cannot lose my job.
Reapply to the court. Actually you should have an attorney apply for you.
My mother's boyfriend is a drunk and ruins every Holiday. He has a warrant out and I was wondering can I have him picked up?
He owes child support.
You can try. If you call the police with a location for a fugitive they will likely come out to see if they can't make...
Can a dui hurt my chances for employment?
I was offered a job at a amazing company. I filled out and sent in all my paperwork and they informed me there would be a background check. I had no worries. She told me I would probably start the following Monday. That was 2 weeks ago!! They kept telling me the office was backlogged with tons of checks so it would take a while. Last Friday was my last day at my old job. Now I get a call it was red flagged due to DUI's in 2004 and 2007! Will that cost me this job? They already offered it to me so I am now unemployed.
Any criminal offenses can affect your chances of getting certain jobs. DUI's are particularly tricky, especially if it...

Yes, among many other things. Whatever you do, DO NOT try this on your own! Contact an attorney with significant...
