Sentence modifications for DUI In illinois,
I have been convicted of DUI (a) (2) in violatoin of ILCS 11/501 (a) (2), a Class A misdemeanor, sentenced to probation of 24 months and terms of probation, fine of $1922.00,$922 pending, serve 120 days, which has been completed, attend victim impact panel, pending, get D&E evaluation and comply, in process, maintain a SCRAM while on probation, in process for 6 months, and maintain sobrity. Can I appeal for Sentence modification of the SCRAM, due to financial hardship? And request another form of sentence (ie: community service) for the length of probation or weekly D&A testing. Or should just be happy with what I got and it was reduced to a misdemeanor.
Without a lawyer you should be lucky with what you got. With a lawyer, talk it over to see what your lawyer says....
Is the breathalyzer admissible when used at the station?
I refused to do a breathalyzer on the rd because I felt I didn't need to after the fst. I was arrested n taken to the station. There I was told if I want to take one there. I said no, I asked to use the restroom, he told me unless I take the test that I can't.
A breathalyzer at the station is admissible. Protocols must be followed.
Will that breathalyzer test be dismissed because I believe that I was forced into takin it?
I was stopped after I came from dinner with a friend. I only had 2 drinks a corona n a mix drink. After dinner I was pulled over, I was asked for my license and insurance. I add that the officer was on the passenger side of my vehicle. He claims that I switch lanes without signaling and swerving which wasn't true. I did the field sobriety test which I believe I passed. He asked me if I was drinking and I said yes 2 drinks. I told him what I had. He wanted me to do Pbt which I said I don't feel the need to do it if I am showing you by fst. I was arrested and at the station I wasn't allowed to use the bathroom unless I took pbt. May question is, was that illegal to do that to me? My bac was .085 btw.
You need a lawyer. You have been properly charged and despite your opinion that you were not impaired, your BAC shows...
Ex-wife driving our 2 boys around while drunk/impaired. What can I do or rights do I have as the boys' father to protect them?
Divorced for 5 years now...wife & I share joint custody but our two boys, ages 15 & 12, live with their mother. While she always drank alcohol before, after the divorce it escalated to the point she was passing out on the couch at night in front of the boys. In addition, she's been on meds for depression & anxiety that she's drinking on top of as well. My boys are experiencing her erratic moods but most upsetting is that she has been driving them to various places/activities while impaired/intoxicated. While I don't believe she's been caught by the police, my older son has expressed a couple times now being afraid while riding in the car that she has narrowly avoided accidents & blown red lights. My boys love their mother & I know how badly it would upset them if they were forced to come live with me simply due to losing their lifelong friends & having to change schools. I don't want them to be scarred emotionally via the court system or testifying against their mother. I'm at a loss as to what I can or should do going forward. Its come to my attention she's been going to AA meetings but I'm aware she's still drinking.
This is an urgent matter. You need a lawyer involved immediately. Your boys must be told to NOT GET IN THE CAR WITH...
Receiving message "Disabled Heating Voltage enter code (21942)??
I am receiving a message on the device stating "disabled heating voltage enter code 21942). At first it said "you may start the vehicle" then the car wouldn't start so I turned it off and tried again. It let me do the sample and then stated disable heating voltage and a few other errors. I didn't even start the car and it told me to pull over now after it said you may start the vehicle. As I walked in the house to call ADS the car started beeping. I went out and unlocked it and it stopped. I tried it again and now it just gives me the disabled heating voltage message. What is this? I can't get in contact with ADS as it is Sat and Sun. What could this mean?
Best guess is a fuse failure in your vehicle. Go to your vendor's website and look in the FAQ section. Also email the...
Is it possible for me to have my scram removed earlier than the 9 months? If so what is the best way to ask the judge?
In June I was sentenced to wear a scram bracelet for 9 months to reduce my dui to a reckless. Next week I have a court date. I have all my fines and court costs paid. I also I have everything completed from sentence (dui classes,community service, and victim panel).
I think you do not realize how lucky you are to avoid a DUI conviction by complaining to that described option. I do...
