Felony DUI "Great Bodily Injury" License Suspension Issue (South Carolina)
I was convicted of Felony DUI (Great Bodily Injury) on Sept. 17, 2009. I was sentenced to 30 days house arrest and 5 years of Probation suspended on 15 years imprisonment. My probation end date is Sept. 17, 2014 and have no issues regarding probation. My main concern is my Drivers License. Per South Carolina statute a persons Drivers License can only be suspended for the time of imprisonment plus 3 years. Also in this statue it says ; " This period of incarceration shall not include any portion of a suspended sentence such as probation, parole, supervised furlough, or community supervision." I've been to the DMV and they have told me my license is suspended until 2027 and only a court order can change that. How is this possible and what are my options pursuant to South Carolina Law?
It seems as if the DMV considers the suspended sentence as controlling on them. I think you should get a local...
If a passenger in a parked car receives an open container ticket in SC does this go on their driving record or insurance ?
The driver did not receive a ticket but the passenger was issued a ticket for an open container with a court date, will this go on their driver's record, license, or insurance ?
The answer is that it depends. The statute makes no distinction between drivers and passengers. It does, however,...
Conufsed about out of state DUI case. What happens to my SC license when I get convicted of DUI in Missouri?
2014 I was pulled over and immediately asked for a lawyer once the officer said he could smell alcohol coming from the vehicle, taken to jail for suspicion of dui. I received tickets for refusal and dui. I immediately talked to a lawyer and they were able to keep me driving. In Feb I received a new job and ultimately moved to South Carolina. I needed a physical license at the time for proof and I was able to obtain one. I have not went to court yet, lawyers say they can win my refusal but may have to plead guilty in dui. How will this affect my SC drivers license? If my MO drivers license gets suspended will it suspend my SC dl too? What about sr22? If MO requires me to SR22, will that apply only in MO or other states too? I drive sometimes 1500 miles/week for work mainly in sc/82nd.
Most likely suspended. You'll have to eventually contact Missouri and get the hold lifted from your license.

Will my license be suspended after I complete my AEP (Alcohol Education Program)?
Down at senior week, I made a bad decision of getting into a car with alcohol and we was pulled over on the strip and gave two tickets, MIP & Open Container. The cop didn't arrest us but gave us tickets and told us she would recommend us for PTI because we just graduated High School and we had scholarships we couldn't afford to lose. I have never, ever been in trouble with the law before or in trouble at all. I didn't use my PTI but I found out about AEP and I have enrolled in it. I'm almost done with my AEP but somebody mentioned after I complete my AEP, my license will be suspended. If that was the case, wouldn't my license have done been suspended from getting the tickets? Is that true? HELP!
Actually, upon successful completion of AEP, you may apply to the court for an expungement of your arrest record....
DUI over 10 years old. Is ADSAP required in SC? Can I do ADSAP online due to work?
A DUI over 10 years old is still on driving record. First and only offense. Licensed revoked due to simple possession charges. Elegible to receive license as of 2009. What are my options to regain my license as far as ADSAP goes? The charges are so old, is ADSAP still necessary and if so, due to traveling work schedule is there an online class option through a 3rd party available?
My advice is to check with the South Carolina DMV and ask them. If ADSAP was originally required, it is unlikely South...
My license is suspended for a DUI in west Virginia but I live in south carolina.
I was arrested for two DUIs in West Virginia before I turned 21. I served my jail sentence and enough time has passed that I can get my license back if I pay my fines, take DUI classes, and have a breathalyzer installed in my vehicle. However, I moved to south carolina before I completed any of these things and the DUI laws are different here. How should I go about getting my license back?
It's likely that the punishment will stay the same, but you contact a lawyer in South Carolina.
