What can I do in this situation?
My sister paid her past fines and back taxes and even had to retake the driving course test to get her license back, she even paid an SR22, no we are trying to get her a car and when we went to register it, they are saying she is blocked because her license is suspended, but yet it was mailed to her 4 months ago, she really needs this car to get back and forth to work and get her kids to school. What do we do?

Will multiple misdemeanor DUI convictions prevent me from obtaining my real estate license in RI?
I am thinking of pursuing my Real Estate License. I have three misdemeanor DUI convictions (2008, 2012, 2014). I'll save the excuses and just say I've been sober for 2 years and 2 months. Regardless, they are there. None of them are felonies because the first and third weren't within 5 years. I don't want to go through the expense of taking classes, etc. only to find out I won't be eligible because of my past. I do currently hold another professional license to sell property and casualty insurance in RI and in all 50 states plus DC, and have not had any problems, setbacks or disciplinary actions from any of the State Insurance Departments - aside from CA where they required me to write written explanations for each offense for subjective review. Anyway, do any attorneys familiar with Real Estate in RI know if these convictions would prevent me from obtaining this license? Thanks. The application seems to be...
Dui out of state home state Connecticut ... State of arrest RI .. Is this my first offense or 2nd and will I be going to jail?
I was arrested for a dui in RI it's a long story but I think I was drugged at the bar because I don't remember any thing. It was during spring break ...The thing is I'm from CT and also had a dui two years ago. I took the alcohol classes and the charges where dropped. Will this be my second offense or my first offense and will I go to jail. No one was hurt and there was no accident: I'm just worried sick and can't believe i have to shame my family again. If I was of sound mind I would of just slept it of or got a taxi but I don't remember and that is what truly worries me. the only logically reason I see that cause me to drive was that I was trying to get away from someone. Any information would be great thank you, Sandra

"Abort tamper" on ignition interlock device for no reason, in Rhode Island.
Hi, i have an ignition interlock device from the company smart start and I was going to leave work yesterday and I blew into the device and got a reading that said "abort tamper " . I did not try to tamper with the device in any way and to be honest I am very nervous about this situation. About a minute later I blew into the device and it worked properly and let me start the truck. As soon as i got home, i took a video of myself blowing into the device with a time stamp on it to prove I have not been drinking and that i think the device had a glitch and to show the device was not tampered with. I called smart start and they said that it didn't mean that I was tampering with the device they said that It meant that my hand might have been been blocking the vent in the back of the device. What can I expect to happen? I would not want to be charged with something that I did not do because the device is not working properly. Should I hire an attorney? Will I be arrested? I'm really getting tired of this device not working properly , it's very critical that this device works and I'm afraid of loosing my freedom or licence because of faulty equipment. I had smart start make a note.
Unfortunately, we have received many complaints of a similar nature. Always have a witness if possible to document...
Post DUI License Reinstatement Denied...Appeal Options?
My Rhode Island license was suspended for two years following my third DUI. I applied to have my license reinstated after the two years was up a few months ago and I received a letter from the RI DMV Medical Review Board stating my license would not be reinstated at this time because I did not meet a vague list of requirements relating to my psychiatric and mental health. For instance they say I need a letter from a medical professional certifying I have been in treatment with said professional for 12 months and that I have not consumed any alcohol during that time. My question is whether, how and what I can do about this moving forward. I feel like the letter and requirements are, first and foremost, very vague and unclear. Secondly these requirements were never communicated to me during my sentencing or at any time until my license reinstatement was denied. The idea of waiting another year for my license to be reinstated is heart breaking and moreover I do not understand exactly what they want me to do and how to even go about it. Do I have any options for hiring a lawyer to appeal this decison?
I handle cases like this in California, you need to hire an attorney who does medical dmv hearings in RI
