I was arrested for DUI in georgia in 2009 and the case was dead docketed. Arrested again 1 year later and the second time I was convicted. I complied with all of the legal obligations (probation, etc.) However, I got behind on my probation fees due to my inability to obtain employment. Wanted to leave GA to seek employment elsewhere. I elected to do the remainder of the sentence in jail so I could legally leave the state.. Now it shows up as a violation of probation. Can I get the VOP expunged? I was violated simply because I couldn't pay. My question is does the first arrest show up on a criminal background check as a conviction? I checked the county court records for the first arrest and it shows up as "closed" in 2010. (Dated before the 2nd arrest and conviction (no further activity)
The first arrest should not show as a conviction, and under Georgia's new expungement laws you should be able to...
It is my first offense and I plead guilty to the DUI. Is there anyway I can get it expunged in Georgia? I have heard many things such as I can and others saying that I cannot. I know I can receive a pardon in 5 years.. Please, mainly people who know Georgia law answer. Thank you!
No, under Georgia law, a DUI conviction cannot be expunged.

Why is it odd that the HGN was the only field test I was given? Can it be challenged for weather or stress?
I've spoken to several DUI attorneys and a common occurrence is confusion as to why the only field sobriety test I was given was the HGN, so I was curious why that was such a big deal. I've also read up on the checklist for HGN test and it seems wind and visual distractions (both of which were present) are something that has to be accounted for. Can that be contested in court, regardless of BAC?
If HGN was the only field sobriety test that created probable cause for the officer to make the arrest, then it may be...
Should my husband get a VA drivers license before his D.U.I.case is heard in TN, or should he keep his GA license?
We live in Georgia and my husband got a job in Virginia. He is temporarily living in an apartment in Tennessee which is where he was charged with a D.U.I. We are looking for a house in VA but will keep our house in GA. My husband's attorney said he should set up residency in VA and get a VA drivers licence before they go to court because the judge will see him as being more stable.
You need to follow your attorney's advice. This case is in Tennessee and you have an attorney in Tennessee. If you are...
I moved to Michigan from Illinois, incurred DUIs in the state of Illinois. Illinois reported the DUI to Michigan and Michigan took action on my driver license. The issue here, Illinois also took action on my previous Illinois driver licenses. Now I need to have to address the same actions my driver license in Illinois and Michigan. I now reside in Georgia since the late 1999 and can't get either cleared.
You will most likely need to hire attorneys in Michigan and Illinois to get these issues resolved. Until you have...
I ran off the road due to low visibility and got stuck there. Police cars showed up three minutes later and immediately started inquiring as to if I'd been drinking. I had to do the same field test twice for two different officers before being arrested for a DUI. Do I have a case for probable cause?
The officer has to have articuable suspicion to stop you, and probable cause to arrest you. The field sobriety tests...
