Im on DWI probation, can the judge sentance me to jail for getting a warning on my interlock device for blowing a 0.023.
I was rushing to catch my flight for work this morning & was careless to the type of mouthwash i used. I jumped in my vehicle blew in my interlock & started my car. Then every 5 min i kept having to blow, after about the 3rd time i realized it was giving me a warning of 0.023 Alcohol. I amedatly realized what it was picking up but didn't have any water to rince the alcholol from my mouth. I was about to miss my flight so i just left it alone & didn't 0-out my intoxilizer. I cannot drink while im on probation, but even though i was under the legal limit & the breathalyzer didn't violate me. Can i still get a violation of probation and sent to jail?

I would like to no if I can be taken to small claims court or any other.
A friend of mine had his drivers license suspended in Missouri. But lives in Louisiana. He wanted to purchase a vehicle he asked me if I would put the vehicle in my name till he could go to Missouri and straighten out his license in order to get a Louisiana license. I said I would but to go as soon as possible. He has had 3 DWI convictions and did 5 months in jail for the last. We went together purchased a vehicle the receipt went under my name, I also have the title, registration and the insurance all in my name. This is in the state of Louisiana . It cost 6500.00 He never went to Missouri to get his drivers license and was driving drunk all over town so I went with a police officer to get the truck worried I could get sued if he wrecked it. Can he take me to small claims court or other
The answer really depends on some missing facts. I would argue that he really doesn't have a claim to the car, itself,...
Can I be charged with a 3rd offense DUI?
The first time was dismissed and I pleaded to careless operation. The second time I pleaded first offense and it was expunged later. 7 years later I get charged with third offense.
Not if your first offense was dismissed. DA's make mistakes, hire a local DUI lawyer to fight the alleged prior.
DWI Probation problems?
I was charged with a DWI in April. I pleaded 894 with the city attorney and was sentenced to community service, AA meetings, MADD and Driving Class. However of these I have only completed the AA meetings and Community Service. I Have a full time job, but I am not driving and it gas been very hard to even achieve these. The MADD panels in my area have all passed. I am trying to find a driving school, but my court date is in a week. Will I be going to jail? Can I request probation extension to just finish these classes? I am really worried about my court date. My probation officer has not really communicated with me at all either.
Do your best to get everything completed and be able to prove it.
How do I file a motion for extension of probation, I was charged with DUI and I was but on probation, I lost my place to live
to make a long story short I lost my job which had company housing, no place to stay or money I was unable to pay fines and fees. Along with keep a phone, I did leave messages for my PO to call me and never heard from her, I believe if I could explain my situation. You see the court has filed a motion to revoke my probation, however no other criminal charges/activity to violate current Probation, Just need some time.
Why would you want to extend your probation? You need to recall any warrant. Hire an attorney. You're very confused.
