Brunswick Law

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...
If my license was revoked for one year in VA for a DUI and I never had it reinstated in VA but the year has come and gone, am I able to apply for a license in Maine.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...

OUI can be very serious. There are mandatory fines, a license suspension of at least 150 days and even mandatory jail...
I left the scene of a minor accident (< $2500 worth damage). Driver of struck car reports (inaccurately) the make / model of the vehicle to Maine State Police. MSP issue a "BOLO" for the inaccurate make / model. MSP then contact a campground / resort (private land) & ask if a vehicle matching description had recently entered resort. Resort: "Yes." & Resort Security escort MSP to site where vehicle is parked. MSP approach parked vehicle (in driveway of private lot (i.e; lot owned by vehicle driver) on private land (Campground / Resort): find the driver sitting in driver's seat - no keys in ignition - charging cell phone & drinking Malibu rum. MSP never witness driving & saw drinking of rum on own property. Driver arrested: DWI (.275 BAC). Is this arrest legal??
You might have a good issue as to whether the police had probable cause for arrest. There is also an import question as...
I have waited the allotted time for my license to be released. The only thing is that MA wants $730 to release it. If Maine is going to make me get an interlock device, I'd rather wait and save my money. I know I have to be the owner of the vehicle and feel getting my license released may be just blowing my money when I could pay two months rent with it if I'm going to be required to jump thru more hoops for ME.
Since you are residing in ME you should either contact a local experienced attorneys that deal with drivers license...
Six years ago I got my first DUI in New Hampshire, but was from Connecticut. My CT license was never suspended, only my ability to drive in NH. I moved to Maine shortly thereafter, and got a ME license. I just got a second DUI in ME. Will the Interstate Compact uncover by prior DUI in NH if my license was never suspended?
Very likely as NH probably suspended or revoked your driving privileges in NH since you did not have the ability to...
I had to surrender my ID when I was arrested but have since received a new copy of my Maine ID. I asked this in a colorado forum and some lawyers believed that I likely could still drive outside of their state but suggested I check to see if Maine lawyers knew otherwise.
I will assume that you currently hold a valid Maine driver's license- that you did not surrender it at some point and...
