Can I get a hardship if I owe Misdemeanor fines that also have went to collections?
I have no DUI just a few unpaid tickets. Nothing else major.
Most likely you will not be able to get any type of license until all tickets are paid. Consult with a lawyer to be sure.
Charged with DUI, Careless Driving and Hit & Run (leaving the scene)
Refused to blow, hit a construction barrel and only damage was to my vehicle. Prosecutor is offer to drop all charges except DUI if I plead guilty. If not he is saying possible jail time.

Can I appeal a 2005 conviction on a DUI when I know they broke the law in court ?
I didn't know why I was in court . Just saw it on the court site and went . Presumed lawyer came to me with folded papers that said 60 months in top right corner that he was pointing to . I said thats 5 years for what ? No answer he walked away . Came back with 60 days . I don't know why but I said OK . Then all of a sudden the pros . attn . starts telling the judge she wants this and that and he allowed it . Thats when I knew I was just railed for a DUI from the things she wanted from the judge .

I was charged with a DUI that was reduced to a reckless over 20+ years ago.. I recently was arrested for DUI, is this my 2nd
In my DUI charge 20+ years ago I was never arrested. I was only 19 or 20 years old and did not really understand what was going on. A Public Defender took my case and said I should plea for reckless so I did. A few days ago I was arrested for DUI, I did not do a breathalyzer test. Is it possible to get this one also reduced and what type of sentencing are we possibly looking at. I am now 44 years old married with 3 children not that it matters but at a different point in my life. How does it work is this my second offense to DUI? What could be the ramifications of this. Jail time? I don't want to lose my job and ability to provide for my family.
You would be best served by getting a good criminal defense attorney who regularly handles DUI cases. There are many...
Can I sue someone that hit my car from behind and was drunk?
My husband and I were hit from behind and our car is totaled. We were not planning on buying a new car for a few more years. Our car is paid off so we wanted a few years to save money and not have a car payment. Can we sue the person that hit us for the amount of a brand new car?
The simple but perhaps misleading answer to your question is "Yes", you can sue the person who hit you . . . for...
2nd DUI says first offense and no criminal record of first dui....
I had my first DUI August 2009. i have completed everything for that. I was arrest for DUI 2 days ago, and my paperwork says 1st offense. I checked my criminal record and there isn't anything about my first DUI on there. I don't see how this can be. Of course I am going to hire a lawyer to fight this second DUI, because I had not been drinking, but was involved in an accident where I flipped my car and was not very coherent for the field sobriety test. I tried , but told them I couldn't do it. I also saidd I had been at a bar miles away from where I was. i had been at that bar but days before. I was coming from my home. I refused medical treatment (now i wish I didn't because in retrospect I believe I had a concussion) and I refused to blow. I'm just wondering what is going on with this.
Frequently it happens that you are charged with a 1st DUI because the real 1st one did not immediately show up on the...
