Can you travel to Mexico pending a DUI
My friend got arrested last night for a DUI and he was sent to jail over night but there was no bond he was just free to go when someone came to pick him up. The court date is June 13th but we leave for Cancun, Mexico June 2nd-8th. Can he go? If he does go will we all be denied entry to Mexico?
Best to check with your nearest Mexican consulate. Begin by searching on their website, then call.

What other factors can help in getting reductions for DWI Charge?
I was pulled over by an officer last night in Northern Virginia; he said that he saw me shopping past the stop line and backing to keep my car behind the line. He said he saw me doing me twice and it took a while for me pull over ( i didn't realize he was trying to pull me over without the alarm sound). He also said he can smell the alcohol. So I had to do a field sobriety test and a breathlyzer test, which i got about 0.12. I was arrested and had to do another breathlyzer test when i got to the station. This time, I got 0.08 which is right at the limit. So I was put in a detention cell for about an hour and was released with an arraignment date. After some research, i found that Virginia does not remove the record and it will last for 11 years for a first offense. I would like to get it reduced to reckless driving to save my careers and future graduate school plans and would like to know what other factors could help my case. I usually do not enjoy drinking; very occasional social drinking but I understand I passed the limit last night.

I was found guilty of a DUI in Virginia in January. Will traveling to Bermuda for two days in August be a problem?
Hi. I was found guilty of a DUI in Virginia January of this year. I am not proud of this at all. I am supposed to attend a family event in Bermuda in August for two days and was wondering if this DUI is going to be a problem for me, as far as entering their country? I realize of course that I can't drive there, but I'm mainly worried about having a problem getting into the country. I have a passport that is up to date, etc. and so that is not a problem. Thank you in advance.
I would just let your bond company know and also your attorney if you have one.
Will I be looking at jail time for an alcohol violation in VA when my DUI occured in 2012 and I am no longer on probation?
My 1st Offense DUI occured in Nov. 2012. I chose not to apply for an Interlock until Nov 2016. ASAP held my case open for that final step since I was dealing with my issues. I had the IID installed for 6 months and failed an ignition test while moving the car over on private property to a garage where I could use an air compressor. My daughter blew in it from the passenger seat before I could stop her because she thought it would shut the car off and she was listening to music. Then we moved it again so we could wash it. I have witnesses that the car never went off the property. As the story goes...that really is what happened. Will I be charged in criminal court? My licence will be suspended in 27 days. I spoke to ASAP and they were very understanding but I realize this is serious. My case worker at ASAP said I will "at least" have the IID on the vehicle for another 6 months but, will I have jail time or another criminal charge? ASAP is going to send me a copy of the report, so they say. Dumb move, I know. Didn't really think at the time since I wasn't really going anywhere :-(
