How long does a person convicted of a level 1 DUI have to stay in prison?
My boyfriend has a level 1 dui with aggravating factor of having our daughter in the the car his suspended sentence was 9-17 months and he has credit for 4 months in county jail
There could be a number of reason for this. You should address this question to his attorney. The fact that your...
Can I do the 60 days instead of paying the fines.
This is my first DWI and I also have been convicted of a 57 in a 35 with no aggravating circumstances. I have received 1yr. suspension of licenses, 1yr supervised probation, 60 days in jail (that has been suspended sentence if I comply), 24hrs. of community service, and have to take an alcohol assessment that is 100 dollars for first visit and $20 for every class after that. The minimum classes I can do is 16 classes costing a minimum of $420. The minimum total in fines is $5115.00. This might as well be a trillion for me. I was told by my probation officer that if I did not comply I would serve the 60 days + the fines would still have to be paid after serving the 60 days. I am broke can't drive in an area that has no public transportation. I am afraid I will end up in jail for being poor
I assume you did not have a lawyer when you pled/ were found guilty. A Level 5 DWI like you had can end in probation or...
What happens on your first DUI?
I got pulled over for "speeding" it was a 42/45 and was breathiilized and it came out .09. I passed my sobriety test (touching the tip of your nose and walking the line etc.) but failed the breath test.
You will want to speak with an experienced NC DUI attorney. With a low test result they may be able to not only avoid...

Obviously DUI classes are not cheap (intentionally to deter future DUI). Did you pay by check? Credit Card? Records...
What recourse do I have for unreported conviction , dui, over 13 years old?
I went in for a dmv hearing. I had apparently 3 convictions but only 2 ever reported. The most recent 2010-which I completed a 4 year suspension. When dmv was pulling my record to prepare for my hearing , they came across the “conviction “ from 13 years prior at the time. This was not presented during my last court case and we decided to settle as i thought the prior case was dismissed. I checked it all with DMV back then and reinstated. I requested records but they don’t have them. All was fine until the level 5, 2007-8then the level 2. 2010. Well due to the failure to report I got stuck in the 10 year clause which resulted in a interlock for 7 years. The judge of my last case only mandated 1 year IID i have it going on 4 years now. Seems the ball was dropped. I have a right to proper reporting . I will say i was 5 years sober when I went for my hearing and have been ever since. Going on 9 years now. Do i have any recourse to have the interlock removed. I believe I have served my time and suffered dearly then and still very limited. I just want to move on with my life. My driving record was restacked and makes it look like i was illegal when it was due to the failure to report.
I don't see why you'd want to report your own crime but ask the court for an abstract.
When will the state dismiss a DUI due to the longevity of the case?
I was charged with a DUI in 04/2015. My blood results came back with Morphine in my system. That being said, I have come into new information that many females were drugged with GHB that night so I have requested that the state test my blood again. It has now been almost 3 years so at what point will the state just dismiss if this takes too long?
Redirecting to the DUI section of AvvoJD
I’m in the Army and got a DUI on base. What can I expect.
Pulled for speeding 34 in a 25...they smelled alcohol so did a breathalyzer. Blew a .09.
You can expect that court will be at the Federal Courthouse which is located above the main post office downtown on...
