What's the statue of limitations on hv Dui's?
I now live in California but Georgia still has a hold on my license.. they are making me jump through more loops even though I've completed Dui court, dui class, clinical evaluation, community service, jail time, paid fines, etc, etc but bc the Dui class certificate was taken 4 days to early they wouldn't accept plus now say I have to provide original certificates and not the copies I have.. most of originals the schools are closed as well.. I live in cali so makes it even harder.. my hv 5 year suspension is in march but my license has been suspended for 7 years total.. is there a statue of limitations that set in for my case to where maybe one day Georgia will just drop the hold on my license? I would be willing to hire someone so they can just get all the legal stuff handled so when march 17th comes I can just walk into the California DMV and get my license reinstated.. thanks for any advice [email protected]

DA wants DUI charge with no evidence.
I was involved in a single car crash in Fulton County. Cop showed up and asked me to step out of the car. By that time EMT's showed up and took me to Grady. I was eventually taken to jail. Now come the court case. The prosecutor has no actual evidence, even the tests the hospital performed, but he wants to charge me with a DUI. I know its the states burden to prove beyond a reasonable doubt I am guilty. Should I take a plea or take it to trial?
Without seeing the discovery and evidence no attorney should give you advice on trial. However; if the state does not...
Is it possible to resolve a DUI case in Atlanta, Georgia without personally appearing?
I received a DUI in 2010 and hired an attorney. At the time, I was told everything was resolved, but when going to renew my license it's clear it wasn't. I live in Arkansas and have no way to travel back to Georgia to resolve the case. I believe there is a FTA in addition to the DUI. I'd be happy to accept a plea and pay whatever fines are necessary if it's possible to do so without personally appearing. The DUI was in Fulton County/Atlanta Municipal Court. Thank you for your assistance.
Yes it is possible to resolve your case without appearing. However, if you have an FTA you are correct that the case is...
What will happen if I attend "walk-in" court with an FTA? FTA is for the charge of driving on suspended license.
The FTA is for failure to appear (court was 3 days ago) on suspended license charge. When I was pulled over about 5 months ago, I had a warrant in another city (I was unaware-for an FTA) which resulted in the suspended license. I was arrested that night and put into 2 different jails, one for the suspended license, I bonded out, then transferred to another jail for the warrant. I took care of the original FTA and cleared up the initial reason for that FTA (driving without insurance). Now I have to deal with this current FTA and the suspended license charge. What am I facing if I go into "walk-in" court to handle this charge? I bailed myself out of jail for the suspended license charge, am I in more trouble? I plan on turning myself in, but in the smartest way to avoid extension of suspension and jail time.
The best way to minimize jail time on FTA is to hire an attorney.
Expungement for DUI Arrest Later Plead Guilty to Reckless Driving.
Is it possible to get the original DUI Arrest expunged in GA when the prosecutor and I agreed to a Reckless Driving plea arrangement? I was arrested and charged for DUI. However, I plead guilty to a lesser charge of Reckless Driving. Thank you,
It cannot be expunged because you plead guilty to a lesser included offense.
