Advice for informal hearing after DUI
I'm eligible for an informal hearing now after my DUI. A few details about my case: blew a .102, cooperated fully with everything the night of the arrest and after sentencing, no other traffic violations other than a minor speeding ticket. Just probation and some fines. Anyways, I got an evaluation done and I'm minimal risk. I rarely drink more than 6 beers in one night, which lines up with what I'd said on the evaluation and what I blew that night. I also don't do any drugs, and haven't smoked cannabis in at least 5 years. My question is this: what can I expect? I don't have anything to lie about, but I keep hearing all these horror stories. Unfortunately, I'm a broke college student, or I'd just get a good lawyer here. Any general advice if I do indeed go solo?
You will learn that the Secretary of State doesn't reinstate convicted drunk drivers who continue to drink six beers in...
Will I not get hired because of a DUI?
I have already went through the interview process for a job in which I now have to wait to take the drug test and get the background check done (which will happen on the 20th). However in the time between signing the papers (9th) and getting the background check done I got arrested for a dui on the jan 13th which is before my background check (jan 20th). My court date isn't until the next month (February 13th) and my license has not yet been suspended (I got 46 days until). Will this arrest show up on this background check even though I have not yet been convicted?
Yes it will show up on a background check most likely. How can we answer a question about an unknown employer and...
How can I be charged with DUI when I was not driving
I was pulled over in the state of Illinois a few blocks away from a bar. I was a passenger in a vehicle owned and being driven by a lady that worked at the bar who was transporting me home because I was to intoxicated to drive. I was pulled from the vehicle and told that I was seen driving earlier that day. They took me in handcuffs to the police station, I had chest pains and was taken by ambulance to the hospital. The officer asked if I would submit to a blood alcohol test. I asked if it was required by Illinois state law for the passenger in a motor vehicle to submit to a blood alcohol test. He answered no and I told him that was my answer also. They wrote me a ticket for DUI went back to the bar seized my car according to the rico act. I lost my car and am still fighting DUI. The only evidence is two witness's who state I was driving my vehicle earlier that day. I am defending myself due to lack of money caused by medical problems. There was no accident. Thank you for your time.
You might qualify for a public defender. There are avenues of defense available but I think you would have a hard time...
