What happens if a police officer doesn't show up to my dmv dui hearing?
I was pulled over by a city police officer. The dmv told me I had four options, one of them being to have an administrative hearing. The police officer who pulled me over is now on life support. He will not be able to show up to my hearing. Could my case be dismissed because of this?
It could be dismissed. You have a right to a trial where the state must prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. If...

How many times can a DUI case be continued?
My case is with the Office of Administrative Hearings. This July (2018) will be 3 years since my arrest date. My hearings have been continued a total of 5 times. The officer has not been to any of the hearings. The last continuance I received, the officer was on vacation and couldn't make it. Is there a point to where they cannot continue it anymore? I'm 6 months shy of this going on for 3 years, I just want it to end.
Unfortunately the current system on a DUI charge in West Virginia, as to the administrative / license hearing aspect,...
Personal DUI in WV with PA CDL?
first and foremost, i am a Pennsylvania resident with a CDL, but i rent a place in WV where the incident occurred. i had a minor accident in my personal car due to severe weather. it didn't cause any property damage or anything, just the car itself. instead of walking 1/4mi home like a smart person, i fell asleep in the car. well, someone called the police and i was arrested for "Aggravated DUI"(BAC 0.2x). ive done a lot of googling, and from what i understand this would probably be treated as a first offense, despite my three priors(two first offenses in PA 1999, one second offense in WV 2005). where im confused is with the license suspension part of it. WV has a DMV hearing and a criminal hearing separately. im told that even if i can get the criminal charges reduced, i still have to face the DMV part of it, which is nearly impossible to beat, and will result in a license suspension. however, PA doesnt have this seperate DMV hearing. if its dismissed/reduced in criminal court, its dismissed/reduced altogether. if i can manage to get the criminal charges reduced, how will this affect my Pennsylvania license?
While not a 100%, It’s highly likely that when the WV DMV takes your CDL privilege here for life (due to prior(s)),...
