Do DUI's without a CDL count the same as DUI's with a regular driving license.
I have 2 DUI's, one in Wisconsin, one in North Dakota. I was a CDL holder until my second DUI, received in ND, set me up for a lifetime suspension on my CDL. The first DUI I received in Wisconsin I was only a holder of a regular drivers license. My question is this, I never had the one year suspension to my CDL after my first DUI and was able to get my CDL 7 months after, so should my second DUI, but first with a CDL, be the one year suspension and do I have any case there to try and get it back. It's been 3 years since my second DUI that took my CDL for life. Thank you.
I'm not certain about other states, but in North Dakota there's an absolute prohibition for life following the second...
I had a felony DUI 4th offense in Arkansas that was disposed of in 1994. Can I get this expunged or sealed at this point?
I have had no other DUI or serious traffic offenses since that time. I believe I may have one speeding ticket that is about 7 years old.
If your DUI conviction was in Arkansas, Arkansas courts retain jurisdiction over the matter. The process for...
I was cited with a minor in consumption of alcohol. Wondering if pleading guilty or not guilty will be better
I got a minor in consumption of alcohol citation and have court on Friday morning. I requested the police report and it is not very accurate. It says I admitted to drinking, but I did not. They never got a Breathalyzer because I had an anxiety attack (due to an officer yelling and calling me names, also not on report). I turn 21 in 3 months and am wondering if this is worth fighting or if I should just plead guilty and pay the fine? Also, what is the longest this will be on my record? I live in North Dakota and have a clean record.
Convictions dont go away. Talk to a local traffic or criminal law attorney. Search for one here on AVVO by using...
My son was involved in an ATV accident this last Friday. He was the owner and driving and intoxicated.
He caused injury to one of the riders who was transported to the hospital and had surgery. All 4 on the ATV were intoxicated he was cited for a DUI. We have found out today that the insurance on the ATV had expired about 2 weeks ago. They are looking into our home insurance for coverage, but what are his legal reaponsibilities they all were drunk the girl that was hurt is under 21, they all got on the ATV willingly.
My goodness -- this is a very bad situation. Chances are great your homeowner's policy is not jumping in as there are...

I was convicted of a Dui, I am also Diabetic and had an extreme low blood sugar when I was pulled over, can I get a better plea?
I was pulled over because for a traffic violation, driving on the wrong side of the road while not passing. I am diabetic and was having an extreme low blood sugar because of a new kind of insulin I started taking the week of, which I blacked/browned out from. I was drinking also. I blew a .166 at the hospital, and they took a blood test which shows a .195. This is my first violation of any kind other than a speed ticket. What kind of chances do I have of a good plea? Does the medical condition grant me any leniency? I was not in my right mind while doing this and never would drive drunk.
Generally, using low blood sugar as a defense is not going to fly. When you live with diabetes you are well aware that...
I already had an evaluation, is it possible to get a second one and use that recommendation instead?
It's my first DUI, and I got an evaluation right away, but there is a specific place I want to go to and they don't offer the services recommended by the first facility. Is it possible to get a second evaluation? The first place sent the information to the court and DMV already.
You can get another evaluation if you'd like. The second evaluation may have the same or a different recommendation...
