Will a DUI in NC from 9 years ago count as a prior offense in MD?
My fiance was charged with a DUI while we were visiting MD (from FL). He got a DUI in NC 9 years ago. Will this count as a second offense as far as mandatory minimum sentances and such? He is in the process of choosing an attorney, but has recieved conflicting answers so we don't know who to believe.
It will not count as a second offense as far as enhanced penalties are concerned, but a Judge may consider the prior...
Wrong name on form DR 15A? Wrong name on the Intox EC/IR -2 Subject Test had wrong name of Subject.
I want to ask this question over because I am floored at how sloppy the process is for my son's DUI case. 1) My son and I share the same last name (that is all) on the Maryland DR-15A form where the arresting officer signs the results of the breathalyzer, my full name,not my son's name is written in as the driver by the officer and signed by the officer that the person described above (me) was the person who failed the road test and breathalyzer test.Where he signs says this with all kinds stuff on purgery if not true etc.2) Then my full name is on the computer derived receipt of a test called the Intox EC/IR-2 as the subject of the test, not my son's name.3) The arresting officer's name was not spelled right on the computer derived receipt EC/IR-2 as the arresting officer.4) The officers kept calling my son by my name verbally not his own name.5) The officers were marveling at how sound&coherent(although under the influence of alcohol)my son was since he blew a .20%. So here is my point....this seems like a really sloppy stop.If the paperwork does not matter,why does it even exist?If all of this is so sloppy,is it reasonable to doubt that my son may not have blown a .20%?
I am switching the topic area from family to DUI & DWI so you can obtain a better response.
DUI case where the name of the driver on the officer certification is entirely wrong. The only correct name is the last name.
Example: John Michael Smith is the driver.....but, arresting officer's certification is James Mason Smith. Is this enough to throw the case out since the office certified the wrong name entirely?
Likely not, but I am switching topic area to dUI & DWI law so you can obtain a better response.
What should i be expecting after a dui?
I was in an accident two months ago coming home after a few drinks. I had lost control in the rain and hit a pole. No one else was involved but i was taken to the ER. I spoke to the officer for my case at the hospital. I signed a form stating i was willing giving an alcohol test. After finding out what my BAC was from the hospitals tox report i believe it is incorrect. The officer said he would call me a few days later and have me come to the station for something. He did no take my license or give me any paper except the form that i signed. I have not heard from him in two months or the courts. I am going to attempt to get my police report, but i would like to know what i could potentially be expecting and the best course of action.
It can take a few months to be charged, but don't make any statements without representation
Can I get a license and ignition interlock device installed in Maryland if I have a dui in North Carolina?
I finished paying my fines, took all of my required classes and successfully completed my probation period early. I need to have an ignition interlock device installed but was wondering if I would be able to do so in Maryland. I can't seem to find any information on the subject and I'm planning on moving up there.
The answer is found in NC. If the Probation Order requires you to get Court permission before you travel out of State,...
