    BACK TO THE FUTURE: Why don't they build another Commodore Ballroom on Thorndike Street? They have plenty of plenty of room there where that steeple came down. In that spot they should build another Commodore Ballroom.

My son was 19 when he was pulled over for DUI . It was Continued without a finding . Now at 21 he is going to trade school to become and auto mechanic . I am worried that future employers will see this in a CORY or on his Mass driving record and he will find it difficult to find work as an auto mechanic .
Yes they will see it. New CORI reform allows for him to get it sealed after 5 years however it will always remain on...
I believe I will proceed with a No Contest plea since it's my first offense of any criminal matter and there was also vomit on my clothes. Will the penalty I receive from the judge be worst than suspending my license for 45 days, 12 months probation and 16 weeks of classes?
You should get an attorney. Plead not guilty and get help. No one can predict what a judge will do, and you are...
In April 2012 I was involved In a small fender bender. An SUV swerved into my lane, without signaling, trying to get around a stopped vehicle turning left. Because of this I struck the rear of his vehicle at a low rate of speed. There was NO damage to the other SUV and minimal damage to my sedan (grille damage estimated at $275) we decided not to pursue. 6 months later I receive notice the other driver is going after my insurance company. I am found at fault and the other driver is paid out $21,000 for a whiplash claim (14 k medical 7 k payout) he did not claim any property damage. I have picture of both vehicles on the day of the accident. And need to gather more evidence to help my appeal. Any suggestions?
What is your basis for an appeal? Your insurance company does not have any motivation to pay more on a claim then they...

If you don't have a lawyer and can't afford one, ask the court for a lawyer to be assigned to your case. There is no...
In the case, person was pulled over for speeding and upon the stop officer noticed slurring of speech. The field sobriety test was given in which the person failed and was arrested. At the police station a Breathalyzer was given in which the person blew a .205.
This person needs to consult with an experienced DUI defense attorney immediately. If you don't know of one, call an...
I am a Massachusetts resident, and received a DUI in Virginia. I was ordered to 5 days in prison, ASAP, fines, and to install an Ignition Interlock Device for 6 months in my vehicle. I've done the prison time, paid the fines, and am starting ASAP. However, I do not own a vehicle, and never drive. I live in Boston and take public transportation everywhere. My ASAP officer told the Virginia ASAP office this, and they said I had to do it anyways, even if it's a friend's car. This seems outrageous, especially considering Massachusetts doesn't make first time offenders install a IID. What can happen if I don't comply with this provision?
When you committed a crime in Virginia, you subjected yourself to the laws of that Commonwealth. Massachusetts cannot...
On Saturday night I had been driving home and fell asleep on the wheel and crashed into a tree. My car was totaled the police and ambulance came and had asked me what happened I told them I had worked a double shift and was tired and ended up falling asleep on the wheel. I had consumed alcohol but when they asked me if I had I said no and they seemed to have believed me. I was not asked to perform a breathalyzer or any sobriety test but was taken to the hospital on a stretcher and at the hospital they did a regular routine blood test. They said nothing about my blood test but on my hospital report it said right foot fracture, alcohol intoxication. The doctors also did not say anything to me about my BAC. I have received a citation in the mail for staying outside of marked lane and speeding but nothing for a DUI. I am wondering will the hospital give my blood test to the police and notify them I was drunk? It's been a week and I still haven't heard anything and am just a little nervous.
If the police went ahead and issued you a citation for the speeding and the marked lane violation then in it is...
