Can a DUI conviction be classified as a criminal drug statute conviction?
My work policy reads "All employees shall notify us of any criminal drug statute conviction no later than five days after the conviction"
Technically, it probably is. I would not construe it that way, though. You may want to talk about this with your DUI...
Anonymous please...What could happen during a revocation hearing in Kenton county, ky? For failing a urine test on probation.
My boyfriend was arrested for failing a probation urine test. He is on felony probation until 2016 for burglary in the 2nd and poss of a controlled substance in the 1st. He has been in jail for 2 months and is going to court in a week for his revocation hearing. What are the chances of him serving out his time? I believe when he got in trouble he had to wear a bracelet, was on house arrest and went through treatment. I also think this is his 2nd failure of a urine test. He has an attourney through legal aid but I don't think he will see him until his court date. He is not a repeat felony offender and these are the only serious charges he's gotten which I know are bad enough. He is seeing the same judge he saw for the felonies as well. I'm praying he won't have to serve out his time!
The judge could revoke all or part of the original probated sentence based on a violation of the terms of his probation....

No -- it never falls off. The points you received, however, roll over every year.
Governors warrant
My question involves criminal law for the state of: KY and AZ The situation is very complicated , hope you will help me. My friend had a warrant from AZ and got arrested 2 month ago he lives in KY, after postig a bond he got out and we found a lawyer, we took it to a court without knowing that he has to leave to AZ one way or another. The lawyer did not let him know that he got extradition warrant and AZ is waiting for him, the only thing lawyer was saying that everything is fine and he talks to agents in AZ. After we realized that something is wrong with the lawyer becouse we did not even knew what he got charged with in AZ (what we knew it was drug charges a). After we changed the lawyer in 2 days he got arested with governors warrant and they searched the home and found rolled marihuana cigarette and 5 gram of it. So we was waiting for AZ to come and get him from jail but he got charged in KY for selling drugs in school zone, now I dont know what to do, to fight felony here but it can take up to 7 month per his lawyer and he is still in jail becouse there is no bond for him for governors warrant, or accept felony and go to AZ and fight the case there but with felony in KY he might face 5-6 years in AZ per lawyer and we do not even know what AZ has on him or what charges there are, nobody can figure it out. So whats the best way for us?
A governor's warrant does not just appear. There have to be some sort of extradition proceedings (at least a waiver)....

Tricky situation with a past DUI and an SR-22 filing. Please help!
Hello! Years ago, I recieved a DUI with a California license, while I was a resident in the state of Kentucky in the state of Kentucky. After I fulfilled all of my requirements, I was told that I was on probation for 3 years to California even though I don't live there, and that I had to have an SR22. I found a non-owners SR22 for $30 dollars a month and had that for about a a year and a half. Then all of a sudden the policy changed to $200 dollars a month and I was out of the country so I couldn't afford it. So I had to cancel my insurance and my license is suspended again. I will have to get a new SR22 going again when I get home and working. My question is, will my 3 month probation period start all over again or will it still be only 3 months from original conviction? I'm just hoping I didn't waste a year and a half of SR22 payments for nothing. I'm really just wanting to be free from California and move on with my life. I just don't know how else I could have handled it. Is there any alternative to find an SR22 that isn't over 200/months. That's just too steep for me to handle as I'm just a waiter. Thank you for any help!
Unless there are extenuating circumstances, an SR-22 must be continually maintained. Shop around - rates can differ...
