My question has to do with a friends OUI... Police and Prosecutor are stating 3rd offence but driving record would show 1st
First time with the law and oui was 1978.. 18 years old Case Disp.. Dissmissed.. 2nd time 1996 Disp.. (NP) never persued by prosecution.. Looking at driving record since 1990 there is no driving infractions, no OUI's nothing.. Now friend is a CDL driver, No driving infractions on his recoord, no licence suspensions , No OUI convictions, NOTHING... Why would the police put this in the Newspaper as a third offence OUI and systematicly destroy this persons life, livlihood and reputation.. I was in court the day at arraignment and Judge questioned young prosecuter why she was bringing something up and making a big deal about something from 1978 36 years ago when the Defendant was 18 years old??? This case involved no accident, no speeding, No open container... The worst my friend refused BT..
As far as the third offense is concerned, it's (unfortunately) common for police and inexperienced prosecutors to...

I was charged with a dui 7 months ago in CA on vacation. I hired an attorney in CA but want to know if I need a MA One. Also, is my license suspended before the final arraingment or the day of arrest?

Massachusetts CWOF Dismissed OUI / Entry into Canada
OUI case is a CWOF (Continuation without a finding) in Massachusetts. Case will be dismissed pending completion of probation June 2015. Plan on trip to Vancouver for a Cruise in August 2016. I have heard mixed opinions on this site, and elsewhere regarding crossing the Canadian Border under these circumstances. 1) Since the case will have been dismissed by then, a letter from a lawyer or paperwork from the court stating that the case is dismissed will suffice. 2) Will need a Temporary Resident Permit. 3) Will need a full Canadian Criminal Rehabilitation. 4) None of these options above will work. Looking for advice on next steps. And if the suggestion is to talk to a Canadian Immigration Lawyer, then a referral to a good Canadian Immigration Lawyer. Thank You!
AVVO doesn't let us solicit or refer, you need to secure an attorney on your own. As to your issue, CWOFS are...
How long does the state have to prosecute you before they have to drop charges
I have a OUI #2 and its been 4 years and I have been out on $2500 bail showing up for court every date on time then a few weeks ago I was arrested on a warrant cause apparently I was supposed to goto court. last time I went they said the victim/witness was gonna be outa the country for 9 months and we might have a earlier date to discus a plea which I never could get ahold of my lawyer to find out when. its dragging on and every time I show up ether we are not ready or the D.A. isn't ready. When I say we I mean my lawyer who is paid for by the state. So now that I just spent a week in jail again cause of "there" lawyer I finally got a new one who seems pretty good if she sticks around. How many times can this happen?
If you have a new lawyer, I think you are best advised to speak to her. I appreciate that you are trying to tell us...
