Why does my driving record say 1st offense DUI when the charge was amended?
I recently had to go to court to fight a DUI. After going through the lengthy process, finally the charge was amended and I accepted the deal the state of RI had to offer, which was a reckless driving filing for one year amongst a couple other things, but no loss of license. I went online to pay the court fees and through the RI court website it states that I pleaded nolo contendere to the DUI, but has nothing written about reckless driving. I have all my documents from my lawyer stating what the filing was (reckless driving), and the letter basically summed up what we discussed in court and what the judge had said about amending the charge. My question is, why is this not reflecting on my driving record? When my insurance goes to pull my record, this is what they are going to see and it is aggravating because it wasn't a DUI, it was reckless driving. I need advice on what to do and how to get this fixed because I called my lawyer and he just said that "official documents show the amendment".. but I need more than just that answer.
Without reviewing the record, there's no way an attorney can say. Although, mistakes happen all the time.
How to get license reinstated in RI after DUI/chemical test refusal with no car?
My soon to be ex husband had a MA drivers license and was arrested for a first offense DUI in RI. He was convicted of refusing a chemical test. The DUI and marked lane violations were dropped. He no longer has a car. He sold it to pay for legal fees, and he completed his DUI class and community service. Now all he needs is an SR 22 to get his license reinstated, BUT, he has no car. He went to the RI DMV which says he can get a standalone, non owner SR 22 "online", but every place he calls says he needs an existing insurance policy with a car. He looked into purchasing a car, but he needs an active license to get an insurance policy on a new car. It seems like a chicken and egg. What do people do in this situation? I know people must total their cars drunk driving. How do they get back on the road? Is there a way to appeal needing an SR 22 if he doesn't have a car? He'd like to get his license back and eventually save up to purchase a car, but he doesn't have the money to do so now. And regardless he was told he can't get insurance on a new car without having an active license.
Your soon to be ex-husband would do well to consult with his own attorney and insurance agent. After the six month...
If I test positive for marijuana in rhode island will that dirty urine tox screen for marijuana violate my probation?

I don't yet have a medical marijuana card but am applying for it.im court ordered drug counseling.

Do I have a case for negligence against the arresting police department?
On 12/14/2015 I was the passenger in my new Ram 1500, after offering a friend a ride home after a women's meeting, when my friend ( who was driving since I was ill) took a sharp turn on a dark country road, loss control, hit a pole. The driver's side air curtain airbag deployed & every safety alarm went off: I struck my head/right side of my face against the passenger window & my left knee went into the glove compartment, the airbag hit her in the left side of the head. She attempted to open the drivers door, & when that failed, climbed out of the back of the vehicle & took off. Since the passenger door wouldn't open, I climbed into the drivers seat to try to use the main door locks to try to get the doors to open ( she also took the keys). After some time an officer came on the scene, no one had seen the accident or called, he was on patrol. I tried to explain what had happened & provided my information to him. He was completely indifferent to my injuries. The reason, I believe is my plea to DUI 5 yrs earlier. I have gerds so I require a blood test & instead of a hospital I got a jail cell. Now I find out I have permanent nerve damage on top of loss wks of work .
What exactly would be the negligence of the officer? Found an accident scene with someone apparently under the...
What is the statute of limitations in RI for STD transmittal?
I was dating a man who didn't disclose to me that he was hsv (Herpes Simplex Virus) positive. We slept together & he went on vacation. During that time (about 11 days) I developed a (genital) primary outbreak & went to the Dr to get a swab / blood test. My blood test came back negative (as it was a primary outbreak & my body hadn't built up antibodies yet (with no antibodies, you produce a negative result) I was given a prescription for antivirals & started the course. When the guy I was seeing came back from vacation, I mentioned to him that he may have passed something along to me, he apologized that I was in pain but denied having anything to do with my 'issue' which didn't seem right because he was the only person I'd been intimate with & he was denying having anything. Suspicious that he wasn't telling the truth, I went into the bathroom, looked in his travel kit & I found a topical antiviral ointment for cold sores (oral hsv) just not sure of which strain of the virus he had as hsv can be type 1 or 2 located on the mouth or genitals. He got angry with me & told me he'd disclosed having hsv when he clearly hadn't. Advice? as he's still denying transmitting to me.
U could probably file simple assault charges against him. U may also sue him civilly for any medical expenses. Usually...
What can I do in this situation?
My sister paid her past fines and back taxes and even had to retake the driving course test to get her license back, she even paid an SR22, no we are trying to get her a car and when we went to register it, they are saying she is blocked because her license is suspended, but yet it was mailed to her 4 months ago, she really needs this car to get back and forth to work and get her kids to school. What do we do?
I suggest that you go straight to the source, call the good folks at RI-DMV at 401-462-4368 and ask them directly....
