3 dwi's in first 6 months of 2015.
I have already plead to 2 but have one pending. Can I be charged/sentenced for the third. Somewhere I heard you can only be charged for 2 at the same time or something to that effect....please advise
What you heard is not correct. The State can, and certainly will, prosecute you on every DUI you have been charged with....
Is there a statue on limitation on revoking your license for refusal to blow in north Carolina? DUI was two years ago.
I was arrested for DUI in Oct 2013, because I couldn't blow hard enough the arresting office also charged me with refusal to blow. I hired an attorney and he was able to get all my charges dismissed. I just received a letter in the mail today Nov 25, 2015 from NC DMV stating that my license would be revoked for one year due to the refusal to blow. Why are they just now sending this? Two years have passed, is there not a statue of limitation on the license suspension in NC?

Is it impossible to get driving privileges granted w\ 3 DUI alcohol free & taking DUI classes?
Most lawyers say it is but I have heard there is a way around it & a person could still get limited driving privileges depending on their driving record. What could be worse on the driving record to disqualify me? The DMV says 2018 before I can get a hearing to reinstate my license. That is a very long time & I have no way around & my husband is legally blind so taxi bills are thru the roof. I may even need a lawyer for the hearing in 2018 so I was told. I am willing to. Pay well for driving privileges if I can find a smart lawyer who knows the way around it. My lawyer for my case was pd. $1000.00 partial payment to talk to the judge but he lied not rendering services so he has been turned in for keeping my money. I have heard & read it can be done depending on my record. NC lawyer needed

I was visiting Raleigh from NJ and got a DUI, I don't need a license in NJ, I take public transportation, do I need to return
Can I plead guilty by mail or do I have to worry they will come for me in NJ, Im guilty just want it to go away with minimal problems.
You need to return and take care of this. Merely saying "I'm guilty" prevents you from availing yourself of any defense...
I lost my license for a few DUI's & will not be eligible for a hearing for two years in which I was told I would need 3 characte
Witnesses & maybe a lawyer was a good idea . In a nutshell, I may lose my current vehicle due to paying fines. I am currently working on driving privileges but may not be able to keep the vehicle. If I am granted a chance at a license, one has to have ins. to get a license but would not have it w\out a vehicle. One has to have license to purchase a vehicle but can't get it until the DMV grants it. The Interlock has to be placed in the vehicle before they will grant someone a license & how is that going to happen if the vehicle is on a car lot waiting to be purchased? One can't even test drive w\out a license. This is a vicious cycle. It would be easier if one already had a vehicle but it may not be possible. Where in the world does someone start w\ this process? Who or where is the best pl
Yes, it's a problem. Consider borrowing a car to put the IID and get your license with.
Is there any way around having to install an ignition interlock device?
About 1yr 9mths ago, I got arrested for DUI. My BAL was. 07 at the stop but the officer said that I didn't blow hard enough. They performed a sobriety test twice. They took me to the station which was 20 minutes away and did another BAL test. This time it was 0.16. I tried to have my lawyer argue that I wasn't 'actually' driving at 0.16 since it took 20 minutes to drive to the station. I was ordered to install an ignition interlock device in my car for 1yr (this was my 1st traffic/criminal offense with no other aggravating factors apart from the BAL). There's no public transportation where I live and I have to drive a few miles to get a job that pays enough to cover insurance and the Ignition device. Is there any way around this? Any exemptions? (if it helps, I quit drinking altogether
