What are chances of getting 1998 N.C. dwi resolved as "pleasantly" as possible or dismissed ?
In 10/98 i got dwi in N.C. My court date was set for 11/98 and i posted bond.3 days before i was to be in court for the 10/98 dwi,I was arrested on a different charge, also in N.C. I never made bond on new charge and was later convicted of it. I was in N.C. custody for the next 151 months.Prior to my release in 2011 an AOC check was done. I was also approved for post-release supervision transfer to W.V. due to the fact that W.V. is my home state.If the post-release transfer is approved, it is determined by the sending state that the person being released is in "substantial compliance" with any charges that may exist in the sending or receiving state.I currently cant get my DL back in W.V. because of the dwi from 10/98.I assume they put the case in VL status since i wasnt in court.I was led to believe you had either fled the state or were in hiding and your whereabouts couldnt be determined in order for a VL status to be applied.Starting 3 days before my dwi court date i was in N.C. custody for 12-1/2 years straight.Just now to the point where i can afford to hire attorney.Looking for some opinions on my situation and best way to proceed.Thanks for any and all feedback!
Hire the right attorney and he or she should be able to get the case dismissed without you needing to appear in court....
Can I ask for house arrest instead of doing 45 days in jail?
I've been violated on my probation for drug screens, money, and community service. So I know my suspended sentence is 45 days in jail. Can I ask for house arrest instead of time in jail? I'm in a substance abuse class for the marijuana and I just got a job at McDonald's. Please someone help me.
No. The Court can order you to serve a 45 day sentence as you have violated the terms and conditions of your probation....
Is it possible to get a "DUI" off of my record?
When I was 18, I was pulled over for speeding (10 over). The police officer suspected me of drinking due to the smell of my passengers. I had previously consumed a few drinks but was confident I was ok. I agreed to a breathalyzer and blew a .05. I was given a citation, not detained, and allowed to drive home. Under the advice of my paid attorney, I plead guilty (hindsight tells me this was a mistake) and I received limited driving privileges and basic alcohol education classes. This was settled a while after the initial citation and after I had turned 19. On my record, I have a DUI. This has been extremely inconvenient recently. I am now 22, attend a university, and seeking engineering internships. Due to the nature of my desired career, a DUI on my record can be troublesome. Additionally, I was recently denied a purchase permit (NC) due to this being on my record. Is there any course of action that can be taken to rid the DUI on my record? This was the first offence, did not have a previous record, and have not been found guilty of a crime since. Is it worth obtaining paid legal representaion? Or am I doomed to live with a mistake I made while I was a teen? Thankyou

What are my rights if I was involuntarily confined to a psychiatry facility after being arrested for DUI of an antidepressant?
My niece, a former police officer, and sister involuntarily committed me to a psychiatric institute while I was at the hospital for drug tests which showed only marijuana. I had a traffic court date the next morning (in which I have proof my brakes were corroded) and an appointment already to see my psychiatrist the week later to change medications for depression. I kept asking everyone why but got no answer. Never had I hurt anyone or myself and had no choice but to go. I was traumatized and continue to have nightmares, thinking I will never recover from this.
More information is needed - namely how long you were confined, the official reason for the confinement, and why your...
How can I get an underage dui and reckless driving tecket wiped clean?
I had been drinking at the beach and went to pick up a friend, I felt sober and after I picked him up I was driving to my Grama's house and got pulled over. I blew a .09, and I know its over the legal BAC level, I just have a high tolerance to alcohol, i.e I can drink a whole bottle of wine and only feel buzzed. They said I was going 80 in a 45, but I thought it was 45 and my speedometer is 10 off and I know for a fact it didnt even read 75. I need to get a lawyer that can definately wipe this clean for me. If it helps the cop was a complete butthole. MY SPEEDOMETER IS TEN OFF IF IT SAYS 50 I AM ACTUALLY GOING 40
You certainly need to automatically lower your expectations of simply getting the case dismissed. The reality is, you...

If you knew that your speedometer was 10 mph off and your speedometer showed that you were going about 75 mph, then you...
