Are there any travel restrictions to Caribbean due to DUI
I had a DUI Convection in June 2014 which was dropped after completing DUI Diversion Program (June 2015) in Oregon. I am planning on taking a Caribbean cruise next to Grand Turks, La Romana (Dominican Republic), Curacao, Aruba (Netherlands Antilles). The cruise will be leaving out of Florida. Could I be denied entry at the port of calls? I have a Valid US Passport.
This post is in the criminal defense forum. It is not about that, rather it is about travelling to the Carribbean,...
What will the court do if they find out a person on trial for DUI is committing marriage (green card) fraud in another state?
I know someone committing marriage fraud that drove drunk and got a DUI along with other misdemeanors. She left the state to move in with a boyfriend leaving her husband. Not divorced, she just left him to move in with her boyfriend and only has the two year conditional green card that is sue for change of status. Her husband is a friend of mine and he has Aspergers. He was tricked into marrying her and thinks being she moved out he is in the clear. He doesn't understand that isn't how USCIS works with green card marriage. Me and some others want to tell the court about her past history with alcohol and drugs in the other state. Also about the marriage fraud and our friend having a cognitive disability where he doesn't understand social interactions well or lying. We feel the court should know this because she is a good liar and people take pity on her. She will lie to the court about being married and being a drunk eventually hurting someone while driving drunk or worse. Is there anything we can do to help the judge understand who they are dealing with?
Circuit Courts do not have jurisdiction into the matter of Marriage Fraud for immigration purposes, which is a federal...

Will my DUI/DUII be revoked? What can I do to fight it?
I was placed in the DUI/DUII diversion program in Clackamas county by circuit Judge Susie L Norby. Sometime ago, I finally got my license back, got my SR-22 filed, and an IID (SmartStart) breathalyzer installed in my vehicle. My first report went to my monitoring authority (Pioneer Drug and Alcohol Evaluation Services/PADES). I heard from a counselor in my treatment program that the report showed my IID being "unplugged or something". PADES filed to have my diversion revoked. I have spoken with several representatives from SmartStart and the code was "Power Fail" which means my battery dropped under a certain voltage. SmartStart says if I tampered with the device like PADES claims, it would read "Circumvention". How do I prove my innocence?
You'll receive notice from the court to show cause why your diversion should not be revoked. At the hearing you're...

Your fiancé needs to get a lawyer now. If he has a commercial driver's license, it is at risk. Also, even those who...
