Dui and accident
Drinking alot and hit a car. Side swipe no injuries. First offence
Not sure what your question is. Contact a DUI/criminal defense attorney to discuss your case.
I'm currently 2 months into a 6 month, unsupervised probation for a dwai (not dui) in Colorado. Minor charge, minor probation.
I just found out about a job offer of a lifetime in Colorado, and they'd need me there next week. With the legal system the way it is, most have told me that since this is the lowest grade misdemeanor and probabtion there is, that they won't transfer my probabtion to California. I'll never see a job opportunity like this again, so I'm going to take it. I'll inform my probation officer the day I arrive in California, and offer to pay off all fines in regards to my probation. Some have said due to the nature of my charge and probation and the fact I've never been in trouble before, that CO may consider this "good enough" with time served. Is this a possibilty? Is there anything else I can do? I can't let this ridiculous charge ruin my life, so I'm proactively looking for guidance. Thx
In short, leaving first then telling your probation officer later when you get to Calif is a bad idea. Regardless of...
Maxed out my points and had my license suspended in (colorado) I have a DMV hearing (probationary license)
it will cost me my job not to drive.... What can i do to increase my chances of getting a probationary license or red license. I have two pending tickets which I have not gone to court for yet, but they occurred before the hearing....will those points hurt me?
I suggest you retain an attorney experienced in dealing with DMV. Assuming the two pending tickets carry points and if...
I was acquitted of a DUI by Jefferson County but the DMV refuses to reinstate my license without restrictions.
Completely exonerated without a plea of any kind. DMV refuses to reverser the guilty decision at their hearing. I continue to have to pay for a breathilizer in my car and attend DUI classes in spite of the court decision.
Unfortunately the DMV is a completely separate administrative process. It is not a Judicial process like your Jefferson...
I committed two DUIs in Colorado on Aug 2005 and Dec 2006. How can I have your record sealed?
I commited two DUIs almost 10 years ago. When I am checked my background at new company, should I tell my employer about my two DUIs? 1. I heard there is some period (maybe 10 years) that DUI record are automatically sealed. Is this true? 2. If I hire a lawyer to seal my DUI case, how long will it usually take? If the cases are sealed, should I still tell my employer about my DUI? 3. I received my social security number after two DUIs. If my employer checks my background with my social security number, my DUI cases are not found by my employer? Thanks
Some states do have a 10 year drop off for DUIs, unfortunately Colorado is not one of those jurisdictions. DUIs do not...
The CO DMV changed policy, and is now requiring that I change my (mandated) Interlock provider, mid-contract. How is this legal?
2014 DWAI, have completed 19 of 24 mos of an Interlock-only driver's license restriction with 0 violations. I completed all my sentence terms over a yr ago, but this is an administrative DMV-imposed restriction. Recently the DMV notified me that Draeger, the company with whom I entered my required contract, will no longer be a "state approved vendor." So for my last 5 months of restriction I'm now required to have that IID unit removed, and have another installed by a different company - costing me another ~$300, plus workday time off, plus add'l risk of electronics damage to my vehicle, etc. Isn't this essentially ex-post-facto to now increase a penalty that was imposed a year and a half ago? Are there any legal grounds to fight this? I now live in ID, where Draeger still operates.
It doesn't sound like the penalty has changed. The penalty was 24 months with the Interlock Device and -- based on your...
What consiquenses am I facing for a DUI I got in Colorado 6 years ago that I never went to court for? Can I get my license back?
I only lived in Colorado for three months during that time I was arrested for DUI and stayed the night in jail but never went to court or returned to the state after it was six years ago and now I am wanting to take care of it so that I can get my license back and hopefully clear my record
Sounds like you got charged and never went to court. It is quite difficult to tell you what consequences you are...
