About 2 years ago in Colorado at a routine traffic stop I was charged with a DUI and let go. I returned to washington because the police officer told me I could do my hearing over the phone. A couple days before my court date I called the court to find out how to do this hearing. I was informed this was incorrect and I needed to be in colorado in 2 days. So I spent all my money on a bus ticket to colorado for my pre trail hearing (not sure what its called) and excepted a plea deal that involved probation and a reduced charge. I was unable to complete this due to lack of funds. I was homeless with no job. I now have an FTA warrant and just want to know if a lawyer might be able to help with the situation, and what kind of jail time I'm looking at. I blew a .081 if that helps.
Yes a warrant is likely active. Depending upon the jurisdiction and judge, a lawyer can sometimes quash the warrant...
My husband got a DUI and wondering what will show up on the DOT check for his job, and also how soon. Will it say location (city or state) where he got the DUI? And the date?

My lawyer talked to the da and said he had a good plea from my dui I received in December. . A Dwai. I had a prior in 1990. From Everything I am looking at I see no difference because of time or offense. As far as sentencing between the two. Why would this be a good deal. I asked my lawyer doesn't seem to be getting a straight answer. Is this a good deal? Do I need a new lawyer? I'm confused and do not see the benefit.
Frequently a prosecutor offers the lesser included offense of DWAI in place of the DUI based on the chemical test...
I blew a WARN on my smart start device and not even a minute later blew a PASS. Am I going to be ok?
I was driving my car all morning and passed all required tests. After dropping off my son I accidentally just went to start my car without waiting for the BLOW message but blew in it and said WARN. Not even a minute later I blew in it again and I passed. Is this gonna cause me any issues??
It shouldn't cause you any issues especially if the rest of your tests are clean. Make sure to document the time, date...
Can I accept the drunk driver's insurance settlement and also receive restitution from drunk driver.
Drunk driver totaled my vehicle, no injuries. I have accepted but not yet received the settlement from his insurance after months of arguing over the market value of the vehicle. I would lose more in attorneys fees than I would gain by suing the driver in order to get the insurance to pay the judgement for the correct amount. D.A. is requesting restitution to be paid to me for the correct amount, more than his insurance is offering, My question is, can I accept the settlement from his insurance for less and still receive the restitution for the full amount. And am I required to report any settlement I receive from the drunk driver's insurance to the courts.
That's a great question! I would think the restitution value should set the value for the insurance company. Assuming...
