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...
How can I get a Michigan or Georgia driver's license after revocation in Massachusetts for DUI.
There are currently five states that are not members of the DLC; those states are Wisconsin, Tennessee, Massachusetts, Michigan and Georgia. Since MA doesn't report my revocation, can I get a license in an other state?
Call MASS DMV and inform them you live out of state and see what you need to do to get the hold taken off your license....
Do I have to wait the full 45 days after pleading out my case to get my dirver's license back?
I recently plead to a continuance without a finding on driving drunk. It was my first and only offense. I was arrested in Boston on June 6 and was allowed on June 20 to get the continuance without a finding for one year. I was told my driver's license was suspended for 45 days (so by August 4th I guess I can get my license back). My question is-- even though I already plead my case on June 20, do I have to wait the full 45 days to get my regular driver's license back? Or if I am eligible, should I try to get one of those sunset licenses?
What you're referring to is a "hardship" or "cinderella license. You are eligible to apply for one so long as you can...

Denied a hardship license and I have a full time job Massachusetts
I was denied a hardship license yesterday in Mass because they said they could not verify my employment--Im a full time private nanny-and obviously my employer doesnt have company letterhead. She wrote me a letter but it wasnt enough. I also run a legitimate e- business out of my home selling products online for disabled children, can I go back to the RMV at this point with further documentation from that business? What would I need? I have a Sales and Use Tax Registration certificate from the DOR, but will they require more than that? I also am a single parent of one child with autism and the sole provider for my family.
You have not provided enough information for the basis of loss of license to answer question. Is it a first/second...
