What is the Penalty for a first time DWI when you have a completely clean record?
The details to the events that happened are very confusing. I was stopped because I was going 13 miles over the speed limit at 4 am. When the officer came up to talk to me, he must have smelled some alcohol. Which is true, I was out with friends before, had a drink or two and spilled some on my dress. He asked me to step out of the car, I did no complaints. He proceeded with follow the pen with only your eyes test, I did, I also notified him that I am extremely nervous because I have never been stopped by police. I seemed to have passes, then he asked me to walk in a straight line, I did. And then he asked me to balance on one foot, I did. He was very confused and asked me to take a breathalyzer. I did and he and his partner talked for a little, shrugged and then hand cuffed me and asked me to sit next to him in the squad car, I did. We didn't go to a station, some facility where there was a bigger breathalyzer machine, the police officer was really nice, un cuffed me immediately . I blew and it came out to .07. The officer told me I still have to go in front of a judge, but, 99% the judge will have me take a class, told me to just make sure this doesn't happen again.
The maximum penalty for a first offense is a year in jail and a $1,000 fine, but it is unlikely that you will go to...
Medical Test against my consent
My family is blessed with a new bay recently. Prior to delivery of our baby at a local hospital in Montgomery County, Maryland, however, I and my wife declined (chose "no") to a metabolic screening test for our new born. Though the test has been widely applied to screen future anomalies in children, according to my prior research, it had demonstrated alarming rate of false positive result that negatively affected the life of parents. That is why we did not consent to the test. In spite of our clear decline for the test, the nurses at the hospital took our baby into an exam room and draw blood sample from him at our absence. Later on I saw a scotch-tape on the heel of my baby and asked what happened. The nurse told me that they have conducted state of Maryland mandatory metabolic screening. I insisted to know weather the test relay is mandatory which she confirmed it is. After we left the hospital, however, I took time and found out this was false. In the sate of Maryland metabolic infant screening is performed subject to parental consent. As the result of their action, I felt abused, betrayed, and the right of my family violated. What do you guys advise me?
I don't think that DUI/DWi area of AVVO is the correct place for your question. I would suggest moving it to medical...
MVA Judge error on interlock time. Judge vocally said 12 MONTHS on record but official file says 12 DAYS. Can I remove sooner?
MVA Judge error on interlock time. Judge vocally said 12 MONTHS on record but official file says 12 DAYS. Can I remove sooner? So I had my MVA case heard by a Judge who vocally ruled that I MUST have my interlock device installed in my car for a duration of 12 MONTHS, but the official paper documents state 12 DAYS. My lawyer caught this as the hearing ended and advised me that this he has never come across something like this in the past. He stated that in theory, I could potentially have my device uninstalled in about 2 weeks time if I return to the MVA with the paperwork stating that I successfully completed the interlock duration for the requested time written on my hearing files (which specifically state 12 days duration of interlock compliance). Even the MVA clerk who gave me my renewed restricted license with my photo ID on it mentioned that he has never seen a case like this and that according to the documentation, I should be good to go in 2 weeks to come back and get the approval for the interlock removed. Is this something that could potentially occur? I would like answers from other Legal Professionals just to get an outside view. Thanks!

Can I travel abroad with my PO's permission? I am on probation for DUI.
I am on probation and going to the Bahamas very soon. I asked my PO for her permission and she said it's fine but also said I should probably write a letter to the judge; I sent it a few weeks ago and have been checking with the clerk every single day but I guess the judge is busy and has not checked my letter. I have been paying all the fees and have not violated my probation terms. Will I be stopped at the airport (customs) without judge's approval? Can they see that I am on probation at the airport?
Review the terms and conditions of your probation. Typically, it states that you cannot leave the state without...
