I was arrested for DUI, months later I get a new ticket in mail
I was arrested for DUI, was going to court then out of blue I get another ticket w/suspension notice 10 months later. This made it look like I received another DUI 10 mo later. I was order a yr court supervision. I've finished that now dmv says I wasn't suspended I was revoked & I have to apply for a lisc with state & have a breathalyzer in my vehicle! Why would this officer send a new ticket 10mo later!
You had to have had a prior suspension. That's my guess. Did you have a lawyer? Call him or her and get this mess...
I failed a BAIID test. As part of my court supervision I am not supposed to have any alcohol. What will happen?
Hi. I had gone to a concert with a friend, he drove my car back for me, because he is not 21 and did not drink. He messed up on the first few tests when leaving The venue. Three times I believe, because he, "Blew Too Softly," according to the screen on the device. Then he immediately thereafter passed and passed all rolling retests. We went back to his house. Then a few hours later I attempted to start my car and failed with a .043. I am aware that it is under the .05 that the state allows. However, I am worried that there may be some legal repercussions because of my court supervision. What should I be able to expect as consequences? Should I contact my lawyer?
Yes, you should contact your lawyer. Your lawyer will help you draft the letter of explanation which will likely be...
Can I get full custody if my mothers daughter is dating a man who has multiple assault charges, domestic battery charges, DUIs?
I have joint custody with 50/50 visitation because my ex allowed my daughter to be around and live with a convicted child sex offender. Now, she is 7 months pregnant and refused to tell me the name of the man she is dating and bringing my daughter over to his house. My daughter stayed that when she stays the night at his house, she sleeps on the floor next to him while her mother sleeps on the couch because he only has a one bedroom apartment and no beds. I took her to court but the judge said it was none of my business who she had around my daughter and I didn't need to know the mans name. After investigation, I found his name and he has multiple assault (felon) charges, domestic battery charges, DUIs and OPs against him. Also, it looks like he has or had an open DCFS case, too. I think this is why she refused to tell me his name and provide me with any info because of what I would find. Can I go back to court, present these findings and possibly have full custody or am I wasting my time again?
This forum is not the place force discussion. Go in person and discuss these matters with a family law attirney....
My probation officer told me that he will not report my meth use to the courts if I stop using.
My probation officer told me that he will not report my meth use to the courts if I stop using. Is it legal for him to withhold the information from the court? Should I call and tell the prosecutor I am using and failed multiple drug tests?
So you want to turn yourself in even though your PO is trying to give you a break? You really need to speak to your...
I got my license suspended for a year till I'm 21. How can I get it sooner than that? It's been suspended since February 11, 13.
It was first suspended due to an unpaid ticket from out of state. I then got it back but because I got caught driving without a license, they suspended it again till I turn 21.
You likely can't. If you got the suspension for driving without a license, that is the problem. Before you try to get...
I am on court supervision for a DUI and I had an abnormally dilute urine test. What happens if they revoke my supervision?
They are telling me that it was so diluted that it wasnt possible it was urine. My PO watched me piss in the cup so that is 100% crap. He says he was just as shocked as me. Well the head of the dept is a girl that I am seeings soon to be ex father in law (yeah bad luck on my part). I took the test. It was witnessed! Now he is saying either take my chances in court on a revoke or agree to 4 weeks house arrest and 4 months with a bracelet thing at 15 bucks a day that I cannot afford. I really feel like I am being screwed with. 2 "random" alcohol tests in 2 weeks. What am I risking if I say go ahead and convict me? I am originally from Wisconsin and live a few miles away from there. Can I get transfered there to get away from the BS?
Illinois will revoke your driving privileges and send that on to Wisconsin. You won't be able to get reinstatement...
Me and my friends were underage drinking and got caught. The cops didn't give us tickets. Will they come in the mail?
Will we have to go to court?
It is quite possible that the State's Attorney will make the decision as to whether charges will be filed. It would be...
