Can I be released from drug court early by using a attorney??
I asked my attorney already. He told me to go talk to the prosector but I think he was just brushing me off. I'm on phase 4 and I been on it for 8 months. It will be 4yrs I been on drug court in June. I've witness people get off as early as 2.5 yrs while having multiple sanctions on there record. I got my first sanction yesterday for alcohol ( I celebrated starting my own trucking company with family and I drank). I'm not even really a drinker, nor I have I ever used drugs. All the drug court officers and judge knows this. They spoke of it to me behind close doors. I've done outstanding in this program up until yesterday. This program is getting in the way now.. How can I get out?
Doesn't sound like your chances of success are so good now that you have a sanction, but you can always follow your...

I would like to apply for post conviction relief for a prior DUI case that occurred 10 years ago. Please let me know my options.
I have 4 DUi's that took place in my early twenties. I think there may be a chance to open two of he cases and get at least one if not both of them thrown out. I would like to know what are my options with post conviction relief. I've done a little research and i read that time is definitely an issue when applying to the court to have my case heard again.

Will two DUI convictions bar me from becoming naturalized?
I have two DUI convictions, one "attempted DUI" from FL(no fingerprinting done) and my last in 2008 in NJ. I have since sobered up(had a serious problem) and have gone to counseling and meetings since then, thankfully. My father has been naturalized for several years now and is urging me to get naturalized as well but I'm very worried that my past will prevent me from becoming a US citizen. Do I have any chance? And what to do I need to provide if I get to an interview? None of these involved damage to people or property.
This is not actually a dui question but an immigration question. I will change the practice area for you to immigration...
