How long do people in general have to wear a scram bracelet following a violation of probation?
I know a friend who violated his probation by drinking a few beers a day before he was called in for a random egt test and tested positive. His lawyer got the judge to lift his bond and they increased his AA meetings and put on a scram bracelet. He goes to court in the beginning of next month but he was wondering how long he could possibly have the financial burden of paying for the scram?
Until the judge says so, until the probation is terminated, or until he gets incarcerated for violating his probation.
If my Ohio drivers license is going to be suspended, but is not yet suspended, can I obtain an out-of-state license?
I will be moving out of state here in the next few days, and since my license is still valid up until near the end of this month I was curious. Would I legally be able to obtain a license out of state, and if so, would it stay valid or be suspended as well? Also, on the notice of suspension it has both FRA Suspension for 3 years and a Mandatory Suspension for 3 months. Does this mean the actual suspension is only 3 months and for the rest of the time I have to carry SR-22 insurance, or am I unable to drive the entire time?
You can try. So long as you are not under suspension when you apply for the license in another state you can legally...
Underage drinking - Penndot blocks OH license 22 years later.
Recently I went to renew my Ohio driver's license and to my surprised was told that PA has placed a block on my OH license for an incident that occured 22 years ago. The incident was under age drinking on a college campus. I paid all costs/fines at the time and left the university. However, PennDot is telling me now that my license should have been suspended and they show no record of any credits/time for this suspension. I'm not and have never had a PA driver's license. Also, previous 4+ times that I renewed my license never had a problem. Questions. 1. Can PA suspend my OH license? 2. What legal recourse do I have to get block removed? Thanks
Ohio does not have a suspension for conviction of underage consumption, I can't speak on PA laws. You should check...
In OHIO when is a person considered under "arrest"?
I was pulled over for OVI and the officer made me do field sobriety tests, then put me in cuffs, took me back to the police station. He read the BMV 2255 form that stated I was under arrest, and made me submit to a breathalyzer. He released me to my family shortly after. Was I under arrest under Ohio law?
Whether you are under arrest depends on the circumstances. The actual question you should ask is "were you in custody?"...
Is it possible to file with the court to get my license back before the suspension is up? How do I start the process?
In 2012 I plead guilty to my 3rd DUI. Had a public defender at the time with no DUI experience. Although I was less then a mile from home, did not wreck, cause any harm to others and fully cooperated with the officers (same for the other cases). The judge gave a a 10 year suspension and I am not allowed to have a car titled in my name either. I went through all of the rehabilitation, completed probation without an incident and have continued to stay on the right path since. However, my job is starting to require mandatory overtime and it is causing an issue for me since the bus I ride doesn't allow a change in my hours.
The best move would be to hire an attorney to file a motion for occupational driving privileges. If granted, the judge...
Will they just see that my levels are decreasing from Test 1 to Test 2 or will a failure on the second test hurt my case?
I was arrested for DUI and ordered to take 2 pre trial drug tests. I know I will fail the first and possibly the second. The time in between the tests is 10 days and I fear my system will still not be cleared. This was not a drug related arrest.
If your levels decrease, you'll be fine. If they increase or stay the same, you'll have a problem. I hope you have an...
