If your are arrested for a DUI, but it was dropped down to a DUAC, is the DUAC considered a crime that check yes on application?
On application, I checked No to have you ever been convicted or plead guilty to a crime. However, on the background it is showing up as a DUI and stating that I lied on my application. I was under the impression that a DUAC would not show up on a criminal record but on the driver's record. Now it looked like I lied on a the application.
That is correct, you did. DUAC is no different than a DUI except in that it requires a blood alcohol reading to...

Can I move out of state with an open DSS investigation?
Last week DSS came out because someone called and they sent me to do a drug test Thursday. This will be my 8th DSS investigation in the past few years and my 3rd DSS investigation just this past year. I have been hair and urin tested with all of them and passed negative and the cases have been closed. Now yesterday they called with the results if this drug test and said that I tested positive for meth! I've never done that drug! I told her I had never done that and she asked if I had been around anyone who had and I explained that my ex boyfriend had been using for awhile behind my back and I was unaware. But when I found out i moved me and the children out of the home which was almost a month ago. She said she had heard of cases where someone fails for exposure. O also read online that asthma medicine and robatussin can cause you to have a false positive meth test. Which i have been taking both, so im not sure if that would be a cause asvwrll or not. She said she would contact my worker with the results today and let her know and I would be contacted. I am terrified they will take my kids for a drug I didn't even use. If I have passed all others why would I just decide to start do

How do I ask the court for a DUI plea bargain?
In 2014 I was pulled (minor swerving) and I denied a breathalyzer but I failed my field tests. I feel the best option is to plea guilty for a reduction to "reckless driving" , no fine and 6 or more weeks of DUI classes. Is this too much to ask? How do I ask in the right terms since I'll be representing myself?
Most prosecutors don't take DUI's lightly. If you want to plea to a lesser charge, you will need to know what the...
