Can I be forced to do a drug inpatient program even though I was granted by the court prior a second chance to do outpatient?
In July 2016 I was civilly committed into detox for drugs. I completed the detox program and was sentenced to do an outpatient program in my town. I failed to successfully complete the outpatient program. I don't have any drug related charges or arrests. I recently have had a review of my case in court and was granted a second chance at successfully completing the same exact outpatient program. When I went in for my assessment, my long term therapist who I've had for about 5 years did the assessment. She told me in her own words that she was "biased" about that matter and that she thought I should do inpatient treatment. I have been clean and working hard on my recovery since I failed my first attempt at outpatient treatment. I have strived in many aspects of my life since July 2016. I have court coming up soon to review the second evaluation, which they recommended I do an impatient program. I thought about getting a second evaluation done somewhere else before the court date just to prove that I'm serious about my sobriety and that an inpatient program is unnecessary.
Yes, you can. You were given a chance under certain conditions and you failed to follow through with your obligation....
Im being charged with owi 3rd but I feel I have a very good case against it. Would very much appreciate legal advice.
I live & was charged with owi 3rd in Iowa. There is NO evidence against me except the cops testimony at trial. My current lawyer got a motion to suppress the video at the police station & there was no video unit installed on the cop car. I contested my license revocation via a phone trial with the DOT & the judge ruled in my favor stating that I did request a lawyer & the cop didnt give me one as he was sposed to per 804.20. On the video I am recorded telling him verbally several times that I WOULD take the data master test but he wanted me to sign a paper that I didnt understand which is why I asked for a lawyer. He got mad & took the paper back from me & I never did the data master as a result. Theres more important aspects to the case but space is very limited here.
The test refusal is suppressed. That doesn't mean there is no evidence. People are convicted for owi based on testimony...
I have an IA licence...DUI in IL. I got court supervision. How long is the summery suspension? SR22? other requirements in IA?
This is my first DUI and I failed the breath test.
More detail needed
When am I eligible for a license (if ever)?
I have two DUI convictions in Iowa and two DUI convictions in Illinois. The last time I had a driver's license it was issued by Iowa. Am I eligible for an Iowa driver's license after the 6 year revocation period (2 years temporary license permitted) or am I banned for life since my last DUI (number four) was an Illinois conviction and Illinois statutes state I am banned for life? I'm not sure how this works since I live on the Iowa/Illinois border and have been convicted in both states.
You should start by contacting the licensing agency in the state in which you want a driver license and see what you...
How can I reinstate my license after DUI 10 years ago?
I got a DUI in Oct of 2006 in Missouri. I live in Iowa and never returned to the state of Missouri after I was pulled over. Since then my license has been revoked in Iowa. It's been over 10 years. What do I do to get my license reinstated now after all this time?
You will need to work with the MO DMV to have MO reinstate your driving privileges in MO, and then you should be able...
What does it mean when someone's role in a criminal case is the payor?
Person's role in the case is listed as payor. It's a criminal drug case, so curious what that means.
Its likely that they posted the bond. They may have made some kind of payment on a fine or court cost also.
Can i get in trouble if I was trying to get to the hospital but was pulled over?
I was trying to get to the hospital because I was hit in my already fractured rib. Everyone in the household was either intoxicated or on drugs so I tried driving myself. I have a suspended license and was taken to jail even after telling the officer that I need to get to the hospital. I was and still am in severe pain from it and try to do some things I could before but cant. Can the officer get in trouble for not helping me when I needed help?
Yes you can still get in trouble for driving on a suspended license. A prosecutor will cite that you could have called...
