I was convicted of a DWI, refusal of blood test on Jan.30,2012. Can a judge suspend asap if incarcerated for years?
I was basically pulled by the same officer everytime he saw me. I always passed his sobriety test until he pulled me at 230am and he failed me for not following his finger. I passed all the other tests. He was aware of the medication I took and arrested me for dwi of prescription drugs. At the time I had to have medical reports yearly for dmv and I still had a valid license. Due to my criminal record my attorny told me I couldn't fight it because I would not win. The officer has been taken off patrol and sits at a desk because of harrassment with other people. I spent 4 years in prison for other charges and I don't feel like I should have to complete asap. I did jail time and I've been in treatment.

How would I go about having my license reinstated after being charged with DUI in Norfolk VA and currently residing in Arkansas?
My license has had a hold on it from VA ASAP since 2006 when I was charged with a DUI. I served my time in VA for my DUI and was transferred to AR where I had another charge to serve time for. I served my time and it has been nearly 10 years and I now have a family and am much more mature. My suspension has since been revoked, I have paid all reinstatement fees and fines. However they are still saying I have to take the class but I reside in Arkansas (ever since being transferred)! Any idea how I can get this taken care of and finally have my license back?
ASAP is not going to release your license to the Virginia DMV until they are satisfied you have successfully completed...
