How long does a court have to charge you with a DUI that was charge wrong on ticket?
I was charged with a 2nd DUI when it was actually a 4th DUI. It was dropped in municipal court and sent to District court to charge me for a 4th DUI. Is there a time limit to how long it takes for them to charge me?
The statute of limitations for such a charge in Kansas is five years. It would be prudent to contact a local criminal...
DUI diversion revocation?
I was cited for DUI in 2015, no prior record. I completed the diversion program (1 year stint) without incident. 79 days after I had completed said diversion I received a letter in the mail stating my diversion was being revoked due to a police report in which the officer states I was a witness to an event at a bar. Nearly 3 years after my DUI citation and over a year after my completed diversion I am attending a evidentiary hearing to refute this report (innocent & was not at bar or drinking). I graduate with an MBA in December, if revoked and charged this will have extremely detrimental affects on my life, career, education etc. IF revoked am I sentenced for DUI on the spot, or will I have time to appeal evidentiary hearing, plead non-guilty to original DUI and set for trial, etc?
Review your diversion contract. I suspect it says that the prosecutor has 30, or 60, or possibly even 90 days to file a...
DUI diversion revocation evidentiary hearing
Graduate student- charged with first time DUI in 2014- no record prior. Entered into pre-trial diversion which I completed flawlessly, no failed U/A-Breathalyzer, no missed appts, my D/O concluded my case would be dismissed upon my last appt Dec 2017. In March 2016 I received a notice of revocation of my previously completed diversion. This was due to a police report nearly a year prior that named me in a group of over 18 individuals that were halted by police for being rowdy outside a bar. I was never on bar property. Infact this incident was well over 2000-ft from the bar and I had only showed up minutes before to pick up friends. After explaining to police they took my statement, license, and let me be the first to drive off with the friends I came to pick up (they ended up letting everyone go). My name was on police report, thus it flagged the prosecutor at end of diversion background check. After 18 months of prosecutor plea's my attorney has now set case for an evidentiary hearing. I am not guilty, and do not want placed back on div/charged for DUI. If judge rules against, can I appeal/ fire attorney and seek new council? Thanks.
I don't understand a couple of facts from your question. First of all, if I understand you correctly, this would...
When I am restricted to only operating vehicles with an interlock system, am I legally require to install one in my car?
I was charged with a DUI in January of 2017, was approved for diversion and had my license suspended for 30 days followed by 6 months restricted to only operating vehicles with an interlock system. Am I legally required to install one in my vehicle or can I simply choose to not drive for the 6 month period?
You are ABSOLUTELY required to have the interlock system installed, in your name, on a vehicle for the full restriction...
What should my next steps be in this process (DUI, insurance, auto loan, sr-22)?
I got a DUI in June of 2017. Blew .06, but failed field sobriety test and ultimately admitted to being under the influence of another drug -- basically talked myself into a DUI... although I may have still been charged with DUI regardless due to the fact that I hit a curb and messed up my car pretty bad. Was 18 then, am 19 now. The vehicle I drove was bought by grandfather earlier this year; after the event, he sells it back to the dealership (I don't blame him, I'm an idiot). My car insurance (State Farm) has since dropped me. I am uninsured and car-less. Currently enrolled in diversion program. Required 330days interlock device. Problem is, I can't start that 330days without having my own vehicle. Court fees, etc = can't save money to buy car outright right now, so looking at auto loans from lenders who wont turn away an older car (older car=lower rates). I should also note that my mother has an interlock device on her car, but I can't be on her insurance because she has State Farm. My questions: given that I need a vehicle ASAP, what should next steps be, in what order? And where does the SR-22 come into play in reference to getting an auto loan and auto insurance?
You can get insurance under the assigned risk program. Any insurance agent who sells auto insurance can sell you a...
What happen if I plead guilty to a 2nd DUI when I actually have more DUI convictions they possibly don't know about?
I drove my mothers car on Sept 2nd. I had been drinking during the day. I had pulled into ARBYs and either blacked out or passed out and was found unresponsive by police. I think some one called the police. They took me to the hospital, I guess, blood draw for toxicology. I don't remember anything about the hospital or even being there. They charged me with 2nd DUI. I have more than 2 DUIs . What happens if I just plea guilty to the 2nd charge. Can they come back an prosecute me if they realize the I have more DUIs after my guilty plea?
No, they can't come back and prosecute you for it... that would be double jeopardy.
Why is it okay for police officers to mishandled evidence?
Husband got into a car wreck and the cop left the bac in the back of his cop car for 41 days. This evidence has been used against him now. Can I file a police misconduct with the state?
Not sure what you mean by "file police misconduct with the state." Your husband's attorney can file a motion to...
