Dismissable DUI-Minor?
am charged with a DUI-Minor in Texas. I was pulled over for racing and blew a .015 on the PPT when it was all said and done. I was issued a citation and then told I could drive away, and did. Is this charge dismissible due to the fact I drove away?
I don't think the fact that you were allowed to drive away is dispositive of the case. Remember, they only have to show...
Can multiple alcohol minor related offenses be expunged when you turn 21?
I was charged with a DUI minor and was currently doing differed disposition for the charge. While doing the differed I was charged with an MIP. My friend was doing differed for a Public Intoxication and was also charged with a MIP during his probation as well. I am aware both of us will receive the penalty for both currently. Now my question is with both of these charges on our record, will it be possible to get both charges expunged when we turn 21 as is the case if we were to just have one on our record. I have tried to look at Texas expungement laws and have been feeble in my finds. Any help on this topic would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
How old were you when you were charged with the DUI? How old were you when the MIP happened? "Expungement" will not...
Minor DUI, Passed Sobriety test, refused breathalyzer, could not get warrant for blood work, did admit to one beer, what now?
Was heading down HWY 60 and missed our turn and try to make it, hitting a yield sign in the process. Pulled over to try and pull it from underneath the car, as we are in the parking lot, a campus police officer pulls up (we are at least 5 miles from campus so we did not know what he was doing on this side of town) calls in Canyon PD and leaves. Back of truck is loaded with beer we said was not ours. Makes me take a sobriety test, places me in handcuffs and puts me in back of the car. Friend over hears the officers talking stating that I had basically passed the test. I refused the breathalyzer, then they tried to get a warrant for blood work and I guess failed cause I was bailed out of jail that night. Am I able to have any kind of argument in court? Do they have any "real" evidence?
Is this an "absolute sobriety" case or a DUI case? Real evidence: 1 - You hit a sign. 2 - You admitted to having...
Are there any travel restrictions to Guatemala or Nicaragua with a DWI or DUI?
As I understand it, Canada has some super strict rules on travel after a conviction for DWI or DUI. I'm wondering if there are any issues with travel to Guatemala or Nicaragua after a conviction? My significant other has to travel there this year and next for work. We have the final court date today for conviction and we can ask our lawyer then, but I'm looking for a quick answer beforehand. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
You will face trouble if you leave the country before a verdict is handed down. That is probably the most obvious...
On probation for a DWI and I got arrested for a PI.
I am currently on probation for a DWI I got in Travis County until December 2016. I moved to Montgomery county and my PO is in Montgomery county for the DWI. I just got a PI a couple weeks ago in Montgomery county. What is going to happen to my probation? Do I have to tell my PO? I really don't want to go back to jail.
A relatively small number of people WANT to go back to jail, but many more do things that make it inevitable. You...

Can I get a dwi from only taking Lisinopril or Zoloft ?
I'm worried that I can be busted for this because the prescription bottles state "may cause drowsiness."
DWI = driving while impaired. Impaired is not only caused by alcohol.
