Limitations on DUI?
I have a friend that had a DUI 10 years ago he was wondering would the steps be the same in him trying to acquire his licenses as 10 years ago. Or are there a statue of limitation on it.

Can you be charged with a DWI when you refuse breathalyzer test?
I was pulled over for revoked tag and no insurance. When officer came to window he asked if I had been drinking. I said only 2 beer. I had beer bottles in floor board of car and they found beer bottle caps in my pockets. They had me do the field sobriety test, they said I failed. I refused the breathalyzer test on the spot and at jail. Can I still get charged with Dwi?

Convicted of a DUI in SC (but live in NC) in 2002. Fifteen years later I'm unable to renew my license because of it
In 2002 I received first and only DUI and it happened in SC (I live in NC). I hired an atty an was convicted, but all I was instructed to do by the judge was pay fines (in which I did). My atty told me since I had a NC license it wouldn't be suspended, and that there was nothing further required of me. Fifteen years later when it was time to renew my NC license i find out SC is preventing me from doing so and its my understanding that there are assessments, classes, and other penalties I now have to pay before I can renew my license. I don't know what to do... is there any way at all around this? Why didn't the attorney tell me about these things? I just can't believe all these years later, out of the blue, and at the point where I'm just suddenly left with no valid license is how I have to find this all out! I had always been under the impression that what the judge imposed ($950 fine apx.) had been my punishment, and atty specifically said to me since I had an out of state (NC) license, I wasnt getting it suspended/loosing driving privileges. I would be so grateful for some help in this matter as I need to get license valid again asap. Thank you!

What do I do to get my license released from NC after being charged with DUI 2 yrs ago ? and missing court?
I was the passenger in an accident 2 yrs ago but at some point after the wreck I apparently told them I was driving and charged with dui. I was with the man I was having an affair with and he was driving. I can only imagine I said I was driving so my husband wouldn't find out I was with him that night. I since then have moved to montana, almost immediately because I had small kids and was partially paralyzed, my husband was up north working. I went through some really tough times over the last two years and alone I'm trying to get my kids back. I was not driving that vehicle but If i need to plead guilty I will but I need to know what to do next. I had paid an attorney a partialand was waiting on tax money that January and my grandma wiped 10 grand out my account and I never seen that money therefore having to forfeit my attorney. I since then have been in California and am about to startschool and really want to start getting back on my feetif you can help that would be great. thanks
