Will I be extradited to Oregon form a DUI charge (1st offense ever in OR - I live in New Jersey).
I am an Alcohol & Drug Counselor in New Jersey. Have an old DUI in New Jersey from 2001. I am involved in AA daily and had 5 years, 6 months, 5 -days and 19 hours without a drink. I work in Rehabs, Hospital Detox Centers, Behavioral Health Centers here in NJ - speaking to patients about recovery. I had a serious medication problem while visiting my brother in Oregon and was going through benzodiazepine withdrawal and was concerned about having a seizure. As I teach all of this on a regular basis, I know that the only 2 drugs that can give you seizures upon immediate cessation or a drastic lowering of dose. Well, I made a poor decision - but I was panicking - and I decided that having some beer with my dinner might alleviate my tremors and fear of seizure. I ended up getting stopped for DUI and was given a breathalyzer which showed .16. Don't know how that number came up because I am 6'3" tall and 205 pounds and consumed the beer over 2 hours and was not given the breathalyzer until a couple hours later. I was having severe nausea and acid reflux. I was treated at a local Urgent Care Center in Oregon for severe benzodiazepine withdrawal. Any thoughts? My job and AA are my life.
The medical issue is yours but getting behind the wheel made it the State's problem. Oregon will likely not extradite...
If my son's father and I were never married and he has given zero financial support and was convicted of a DUI...
My sons father was convicted of a DUI a little over a year ago. He has his license back but has still not gotten the interlock device installed in his vehicle that was court ordered. He only asks to see our child two times a month at the most. I never say no, but I fear for my child's safety every time he is with his father. I am in the process of filing for custody and child support. Since my child was born his father has given less than five hundred dollars in child support. He was always a pot smoker and cocaine user prior to the birth of our son who is now 2 and a half years old. Will a judge grant me a motion for a hair follicle test in the state of NJ? The father is now dating a married woman who is constantly posting on social media and it seems like my sons father is back into using drugs and is an admitted everyday drinker to this day. My two questions are will a judge drug test him and can I file any paper work to keep my son away from the girl my sons father is dating?
The answers are yes to testing and yes right now to keeping the woman away.

Can I appeal the jail part of the sentencing and have it become house arrest and if so how would I go about doing it?
I Was convicted of a 39:4-50. They sentenced me as a second offender, although this was actually my third offense. My first occurred in 2003, and my second in 2004. The punishment that was 2 year loss of license, fines, 30 days community service, and 10 days in the county jail to be served on weekends from 8-4 Sat & Sun.

Need advice on reckless driving and other tickets, 2 previous DUIs (NJ)
I had to drive a friend and her car home from a bar around midnight. I was not familiar with the area and was receiving directions from an intoxicated passenger. We were followed by a police car as soon as we left the bar and there was some hesitancy in my lane changes regarding the directions. We were pulled over, I was never told why. They ran our licenses, I have 2 previous DUIs. I was made to do a field sobriety test which I passed. I was then issused the following tickets: 39:4-67 Obstructing Passage of Other Vehicles, 39:4-88B Traffic on Marked Lanes, Unsafe Lane Change, 39:4-56 Delaying Traffic, 39:4-97.1 Operating at a Slow Speed Blocking Traffic, 39.4-96 Reckless Driving. There was no sign of any traffic disruption. The Reckless requires a court date. How should I handle these?
Get a good lawyer and have the tickets consolidated.
Failing to install IID
I was convicted of a 2nd DUI 09/25/2014 in NYC and as a condition was told to install a IID. While planning to sell the car. I had gotten my car back from the impound in January 2015. Since then my license was revoked for 6 months therefore i was not able to drive the car. When the revocation was lifted, license was still in suspended status therefore sill unable to drive and unable to go to install the IID in the car. It has been a year and I had gotten a call from my attorney indicating that the ADA has called and informed that I have violated the terms of the order. What can I do? what can be the outcome?
The fact that your license was revoked and you were not allowed to drive did not mean you didn't need to get the IID...
