Do I have a chance to expunge a federal DUI?
Two years ago, I was pulled over in a federal park. I blew the Breathalyzer at .38 (which was a mistake, but...) and I "failed" the field test. I was arrested and brought to a county jail, where they attempted twice to give me a formal breathalyzer--the breathalyzer did not work. They pushed me to federal court, where I appeared and plead guilty. Since then, I have gone through four months of intensive outpatient care for substance abuse and one year of aftercare for substance abuse. At about the 2 year mark, has put my photo up, as well as details of my arrest and that the case was forwarded to federal court. (The federal court, given multiple conversations, has no record of the proceedings). This was my first offense and I believe it is hindering my ability to gain employment.
There is no means by which a conviction for a federal crime may be expunged, with the sole exception of the simple...
If convicted of 1st off. DUI in Ky, does the judge have option to waive drivers license suspension or is it mandatory?
In Kentucky, on a 1st offense DUI conviction , is drivers license suspension mandatory or does a judge have the option to waive suspension of license. I know that jail time & fine amount is discretionary, but not sure about license suspension of a convicted person.
The minimum required suspension is thirty days, but you could be eligible for an ignition interlock device that would...

What will happen when a monitoring service such as Kaps, says that I've failed to report for a drug screen?
Recently was informed that I was called to report for a drug screen, however there is no record of the call and every time I've been called for one there has been a message left and a call to a secondary number as to I work and can't have phone inside the facility. Never have missed a test as to I have no drug problem. I've been a a success story if the system has had one as I've been gainfully employed for two years and with only a mere month left for my probationary obligations, would be absolutely idiotic to blatantly ignore a screen without absolutely any reason to. Looking for advice and/or peace of mind please.
If you are not complying with Court orders you can go to jail. If it was a honest mistake they may not file a violation...
I got my first dui in Kentucky and I'm a resident of Illinois. Will my liscense be suspended immediately at court?
I went to the Evansville/Henderson area to visit friends last week and was pulled over and arrested for my first dui. No aggravating circumstances and I was cooperative. My largest concern is my liscense because I live in a rural area with no bus system to get to work, I have drill with the national guard on the weekends, and of course I have to drive out of state to get to and from court. Is there any chance ofna grave period before suspension that would atleast allow me to get home.
Kentucky does not do pretrial suspensions of your right to drive in Kentucky on non-refusal non-aggravated DUI cases....
If u was let out of jail with a pass drug screen is it still possible to fail ur first test when called?
I was released on mcr with a pass drug screen on possession charge. I was wondering if all u was gave in jail was water could it of dilated me enough to pass to get out and if I could still fail if that was the case? The jail only gives water to drink with every meal.
This isn't a DUI question. Repost under criminal law.
