Do I need to wait out NC's 1 year DWI suspension to get my license back? or do I only have to complete GA's 120 day suspension?
Georgia resident with a DWI conviction in NC. NC DWI conviction requires a mandatory 1 year suspension. However, I have a GA license and I think I would qualify for GA's 120 day reinstatement provided I complete the necessary requirements for reinstatement.
I've always said that it doesn't hurt to try.
Can you have 3 DUI charges on 1 arrest?
A friend of mine was arrested on a DUI charge. But his charges show 3 DUI charges so his bail is triple the amount. Is this possible? Is there anything we can do to get the bail reduced? BTW This is in Gwinnett County.
Is this a situation where your friend had several children in the car? Or is he just being charged with DUI in 3...
Will I go to jail? Should I postpone the date? How likely is it to get out of jail in this situation?
I got a DUI and a Hit and Run two and a half years ago. I have only had one run in with law since at that was a 14mph over speeding ticket last year. I just got a letter in the mail to go to court. I have already completed DUI class and the clinical evaluation with the recommended treatment for this case. I am 35 weeks pregnant and I go before the judge in two and a half weeks. My lawyer keeps telling me the judge won't put me in jail but he was a cheap lawyer and I want to double check because I would be looking at, I believe, 13 days in jail. 3 days for a second DUI and 10 for a Hit and Run. I would definitely have the baby in jail if that is the case plus I would be missing weekly Dr appointments. Lastly, I want to go to court on this date so that I can be seen pregnant and I am hoping that will give me less of a chance of jail so that I am not taken away from my baby at all. Does it seem likely or unlikely that she would put me in jail on that date?

Does anyone have recent experience with Geico and DUI's?
I was recently charged with DUI, and it also included damage to my own car and nothing else. If I have full coverage and no claims for years, will my insurance still cover this? I do plan on working to prevent a conviction to that charge, hopefully a lesser.
A DUI involving a wreck means that your insurance may "hang you out to dry." You need to contact individual attorneys...

Can I beat this DUI charge?
I was pulled over in Georgia about 10:30 pm an unknown vehicle threw a beverage threw my driver window that i believe contained alcohal this causes me to swerve and had a slight bump with another vehicle where are mirrors touched the other party didn't stop and another driver reported it. about 3 miles down the road they stopped me and said I was in a hit and run incident they said I smelled like alcohol I told them I had two beers before I left NC at 10 am and informed them of the other driver tossing a drink in my car they offered me a breathlizer test which I refused unknowing that in GA that's an automatic DUI or I would have blown on the spot. they found 1 empty 12 ounce can in my vehicle but nowhere in the paperwork did I state an open container charge. I asked to blow when I got to the station 20 minutes later they said no. No tests were offered after the roadside test about 2 hours after the arrest I was bailed out they didn't take my license I am 27 with a spotless records what are my chances of beating these charges?
you should speak with a qualified attorney who practices DUI law and provide that attorney with the full version of...
Ignition Interlock Waiver for DUI from 8 Years ago.
Long story short: Back in 2008, in Georgia, I had a 2nd in 5 DUI (and totaled my vehicle) after which I served jail time, paid hefty fines, had to take several classes and satisfy other requirements for my probation. Shortly after completing those requirements and finishing probation, I moved from Georgia, to Chicago, Illinois and have lived here ever since. One of the conditions for reinstating my license was to have ignition interlock for 6 months. Problem is that I don't have a vehicle, and can't purchase or finance one without a license. I can't get an Illinois license without my Georgia license reinstatement fee paid and that requirement for ignition interlock satisfied. I'm at a loss of how to proceed and would like someone experienced with waivers and the process involved so that I can a) take care of making Georgia happy, and b) getting a drivers license. I haven't drank since my accident in 2008, have a great career, and haven't been in any legal trouble since that stupid decision I made over 8 years ago. I live in Chicago and really don't want to purchase a vehicle, but still would like to rent a car or moving truck from time to time and need advice.
All you have to do is get an ignition interlock device waiver. Do you remember which court your case was in, or who the...
