Can my driver's license be revoked for the same DUI case twice since i had already done without it for over a year?
i was involved in a dui accident which was my fault. the arresting officer petitioned for my d.l. to be revoked. i went from 10/25/12 to march 2014 without my license. fast forward to my court date on 5/26/15 where i plead guilty to the DUI. as part of my punishment, my license were revoked again. now prior to this date, i had a prior meeting with my p.d. where i told him i had already done without my d.l. for a year. he said they could not take them again. he stated this several times. now i don't understand why my license were revoked a second time for the same DUI when i was told they wouldn't be. i can handle the rest of the punishment but i feel i am being punished twice now with my d.l. being taken for a second time. if a mistake was made, how can i fix it?

Dui showing on my MVR when I was in a completely different state?
I'm trying to find cheaper car insurance. I pulled my MVR. In 2015 I went through substance abuse issues with alcohol. Well I actually got a DUI and went to jail then to rehab for 45 days. I graduated a local drug court program and the charges were reduced. However my MVR states that I have a DUI in Kentucky in June 2015 when I was in Memphis TN at a rehab facility. I've been paying out the wazoo for full coverage since getting my license back. I assumed the high cost was because I was high risk due to the accident and careless driving charge. What can I do to correct this error? I'm calling the State Dept of Safety first thing, however I need some help with regards to how this can play out. Obviously I can get records from the Rehab Facility and the jail showing my entry and exit dates. Any help is appreciated.

How should start my sentence when going before a judge for a dui I was convicted but I have had 4 sets of papers .?
I was convicted for a dui I did not have a blood alcohol test. I have had 4 sets of papers to get a restricted license but none of them were correct. I don't want to go to the DMV to get a license with papers that states things I was not guilty of. So I requested to be put on the docket so I could explain it to the judge.
Too complicated of a question to ask online because how you've asked it is really confusing. Speak to a local DUI atty.
