Does random alcohol testing need to be set out as an explicit term of probation in the judgment and sentence.
Counsel and defendant presented joint and agreed sentencing recommendations that did not contain a provision saying defendant must submit to random alcohol testing. The Judge did not make an oral ruling that defendant must submit to random alcohol testing. Defendant was ordered to unsupervised probation and ordered to abstain from alcohol. Defendant was summoned to a drug test and was a no show and now must attend a show cause hearing.
Since you are saying that the Judge did order to abstain from the use of alcohol in the Judgement and Sentence then it...
License suspension after being cited for DUI, but prior to being convicted of the offense.
i was cited for a dui, in washington state, and am pending trial on this issue. my bac was .092. the legal limit here is .08. My question is, how can the Department of licensing suspend my driving privileges for a set period of time, prior to finding me guilty? I know that when i sign my drivers license i am agreeing to abide by all the laws of Washington State, as well as agree to submit to a field sobriety test at any time the officer deems probable cause to submit such test. Here's the catch, when i signed for my drivers license , this rule was not in effect. Innocent until proven guilty is the way it used to be. This new way of doing things(suspending ones driving privileges upon arrest, but prior to being found guilty seems like its violating my right to due process of the law.) i followed the officers requests and cooperated fully. I have no prior dui convictions and there was no accident involved. I was pulled over for speeding originally. When the Department of licensing decided to bring this rule or law into effect, it is something i agree to upon signing my license, correct?
The reason why the DOL can suspend a person license due to an administrative suspension is because your right to drive...
Do police have to impound your vehicle?
Was arrested and released right away. They impounded my vehicle even after I told them my wife or son could be there in 5 minutes to get it. And it was parked legally, where it was. The tow bill was over $400 for towing it 2 blocks!
Yes, the police must act and do not need to accept your word that other arrangements might be made. Consider how many...
Can I cancel a police statement I've made when drunk?
I made a police statement whilst drunk and do not remember the incident at all. I tried to retract my statement the following day but it was too late. Also, I have been informed that the police will not take a statement from somebody drunk but I can assure you I was!! I remember the police man saying his mum got beaten up by his father and he hated men who disrespectful women so I think he may have taken the statement because of his personal beliefs and situations but now I am here and do not remember nothing from the incident or the statement I made
You are responsible for whatever you report to the police. The report can be amended to note your retraction, at the...
Plead guilty to reckless endangerment after being arrested for DUI
After pleading guilty, I was sentenced to a year in jail suspended and 2 years probation- i take weekly UA's and every one of them has come back as diluted. I called my doctor to find out what this meant and what causes it - he told me that being diabetic, its not uncommon to have this happen. Anyway, I had a show cause hearing where they revoked my being out on my own recognances, and gave me a $1000 bond. IF I have already been sentenced, then how is it that I can get a bond? and I thought if you violated probation, no money in the world could get you out rather you served the time set at the probation violation show cause hearing?
You should contact an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of Washington to help you with this case. From...
Student Visa with DUI
Hi , Approximately 10 years ago I was convicted of DUI in the UK. I am a student at university and I have been offered the chance to study in the US. My question relates to whether or not I would be ineligable for a student visa, I do not have other criminal activities on my record. I was charged with failure to supply a specimen. Thanks in advance for your input.
You should go over the DS visa application form with an experienced immigration attorney, who is U.S. licensed and...
Dismissed Dui, will they refile?
I was arrested for refusing a field sobriety test on a probable cause dui. I submitted to the station breathalyzer and blew a 0.03, however was imprisoned for the night and went before a judge. The state prosecutor laughed and said "your honor we are dismissing this case, I haven't had time to file it". The judge released me and I paid no penalties. The paperwork says all future court dates and issues are removed, but to be aware the prosecutor may be able to refile. So what can I expect now, being that my BAC was .03 and it was dismissed, I do have a prior dui reduced to negligent 1.
The judge stated that the State can refile. You need to keep an eye on this to see if they refile.
