If a person knowingly gets auto insurance in their name, allowing a 4 time DUI driver w/ revoked license drive car, is it fraud?
I know of someone (and have written proof via internet messages) that a woman in Colchester, VT, knowingly financed a vehicle in her name and got insurance for the sole purpose of allowing a 4 time convicted DUI offender and documented alcoholic drive the vehicle full time. She lists her address as the home of the vehicle,yet, this drunk driver is the one solely in possession of said jeep. I found out they were insured by Geico and alerted their fraud dept. They investigated and dropped this woman from insurance for fraud. After that, she went to Progressive and obtained insurance. They are currently investigating the case. I have also let VT state police know and they are watching him. I have been giving tips for the past 6 months to cops and NICB. How serious of an offense is this
I cannot tell you the specifics above about Vermont law. I am a Maine attorney and I know in Maine this would be a...
Expunging a felony that occurred at age 18 :DUI with injury (broken arm. Now age 32; no more problems with law. Doable?
A drunk driving accident with a broken arm resulted in a felony conviction over 14 years ago. No other problems with the law have occured since then. Can it be expunged and how do I go about it?
More than likely, the state where it occurred has procedures for expunging records. Generally a DUI conviction is not a...
How reliant is the BAC Back Calculation given what I blew at the station?
Hello I got pulled over last night for not having my headlights on (there are many street lights so I didn't realize it). I had some beers to drink and was asked to do sobriety tests. I feel that I did fine and the officer would not tell me what I did wrong when he asked if I would take a breath test. I refused the test on the street and was taken back to the station where they gave a test. I blew a .066. The test was taken 59 minutes after I was pulled over. Given this information it seems I might be on the line for being over the limit. How does the Back Calculation work and if it does stand that theoretically was above the limit, I assume it wouldn't be by much so what are my chances of defending this successfully? I have heard that the Back Calculation has to make assumptions to do the math and is sometimes not relied heavily or that people can get off because there is no possibility to have theoretically known with 100% certainty when I was pulled over.
What you are talking about is retrograde extrapolation. A retrograde extrapolation requires knowledge of what you...
I would like to sue the Saint Albans State Police for defamation of character, where should I start?
I was pulled over for speeding and subsequently charged with possession and trafficking 880 grams of cocaine. The State Trooper saw hair ties on the floor, which apparently are used to package heroin. This gave him a reason to search my Sister-In-Laws car, which she bought at an auction 3 months prior. After a test kit came back positive for cocaine they then turned the two (2) boxes of baking soda that was in the back into 800 grams of cocaine. Not only did I lose my job because, of this, I have not been able to get a job since the three articles were printed and a segment on the Channel 3 news. I've also had to help my daughter cope with problems she now has with her classmates because, of the unwanted publicity and false accusations. At this point it has become harassment because, it's not the first time this happen. My name has been slandered beyond repair and I can't support myself or my daughter without a job. I have more to say and I'll be willing to do so, when the time comes. Thank you for your time, Kristy L.Sweeney

My ex got DUI#6 in Vt. He had plea deal for 18 month DUI court program, but was not accepted into program. Will he go to jail?
My ex got DUI #6 in Chittenden County while on probation for DUI #5 in Windsor County. Chittenden and Windsor gave him a plea deal for violation of DUI #5 and for his sentence for DUI #6. That deal was that my ex could do an 18 month outpatient program called the Windsor County DUI court. Well, my ex violated probation at least one time that I know of, since the deal. There might even have been more instance of probation violation. At any rate, my ex was never accepted into the DUI court program. He had a status conference with judge in Chittenden County this past week. I see he now has a court date in September for a "sentencing hearing". Does this mean that he will be going back to prison? Chittenden orginally wanted him to do 2 to 6 years for DUI #6. Also, this person is a convicted violent felon in Florida with a lengthy history of domestic violence, DUI"s, a firearm charge/conviction and dozens of violation of probation and/or house arrest. Also, why is the sentencing hearing 6 weeks away if he has already admitted guilt? Shouldn't he just have gone directly to prison since he didn't follow the terms of the plea deal?
the likely reason that the sentencing hearing is six weeks down the road is that I am sure a presentence investigation...
Does it make sense for me to hire a lawyer or should I just plea guilty?
I was arrested for a dui in Vermont, this is my first offense. From my understanding, Vermont does not have a work permitted or hardship license. Is it even worth it for me to fight for it. I'm not contesting that I was speeding or over the limit, I just want to be able to drive to work. Like I said this is my first dui and I don't know the process, I'm willing to pay any fines I have to but I don't want to receive jail time. I'm just feeling so overwhelmed.
In response to your question and with my personal inclination, I would highly reccommend that you hire a Criminal...
