Does a CWOF in Massachussets affect my current Maine license?
The case opened 4 years ago when I was a resident of MA with a MA drivers license, I have since moved (2 years ago) to Maine where I now hold a ME drivers license and have not had any marks on that record. I recently was "Awarded" a CWOF for an OUI which had/has nothing to do with Maine, but I am wondering what the affect, if any, will be on my ability to operate a motor vehicle in my current state?
It seems that the court disposition of the MA case will not likely impact your Maine license. It sounds like there was...
Will a DUI 20 years ago show up on a fingerprint check?
I was arrested for DUI over 20 years ago. I put 'no' on an appication for a job here (stupidly, but I really didn't think i had been 'convicted' of a crime). They fingerprinted me, and nothing showed up. Now, I'm applying for another job which asks the same questions and requires fingerprinting. I am living in terror and don't know what to do. Why didn't my DUI show up the first time? And how do I explain my situation if they happen to ask why I didn't admit it on the first application?
Law enforcement agencies were not as well networked as they are now. My experience is that whether a 20 year old recod...
Should I contest a speeding ticket if I already have a DUI reduced to reckless driving in the last year?
I was stopped for speeding. 68 in 50. When officer approached, I did admit that I was going "a little" too fast, but don't think it was that much over.
Sure you should. Just because you were arrested for DUI a year ago does not mean there is no chance for a good outcome...
Can a judge overrule the terms of a DUI plea offer?
First offense DUI in Maine. BAC .13, no aggravating factors. Not facing jail time. DA offered to reduce charge to DTE provided I complete 48 hour ASP, which I would have to pay to do and hesitant to because of sleep, physical issues that may limit ability to complete ASP comfortably, but will suffer through to get the DTE vs DUI. Just wondering if lawyer can request the ASP be dropped due to the fact that I'm not facing jail time to begin with.
For the most part, judges do not get involved in plea agreements. And when they do it is because they do not think the...

Am I eligible for a Maine drivers license after a DUI in VA?
If my license was revoked for one year in VA for a DUI and I never had it reinstated in VA but the year has come and gone, am I able to apply for a license in Maine. Do I need to reinstate it in VA if I am now a Maine resident?
Maine will not issue you a driver's license as long as you remain under suspension in VA. Until you do what it takes...

Absolutely; however, you can always call the first officer as a witness to challenge the allegations against you.
