Can I use someone's criminal record to help prove liability in rear end wreak ?
I was rear ended by a driver and I filled a claim through his Insurence. They came back with a conclusion of it Being 50/50 because we have conflicting story's and they say they have record of a phone call being place to 911 stating we both were driving wreaklessly. The only wreakless driving I myself did was to try and get away from the other driver, witch promted him to began to chase me riding my bumper and couldn't slow down in time and that's what caused accident. He told them me , I a 27 year old woman driving with her 5 year old daughter randomly started following him, honking my horn and flashing my lights then I swerved over in front of him and forced him to hit Me. after insirence told me this conclusion I looked the driver up and he has a very very intense criminal record from grand larceny, larceny of a animal in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd degree and 2nd degree burglary. Can I use this new found information to help show that my statement is more credible than his ? And is so can It put him 100% responsible for the accident ? Because no telling who put in the phone call, it very well could have been him ! Please help!
You can potentially use his record against him. However it sounds like his actions were intentional and if so his...
Will filing a paupers affidavit help reduce court costs for a DUI first offense?
Arrested for DUI first offense a few months ago. Plead guilty and got an 18 month deferred sentence and needing to pay over $1800.00 in court costs. I cant work due to a disability and my only income is my monthly SSI check which only covers my rent, electric, gas, and phone bills. No family or friend support either.
Speak with a local attorney to see what your options are, they can most likely get you lower payments.

How long can a court try you for a DUI offense?
Been going to court for over 2 years with the same issue I was given a misd. DUI back in 2013. At that time I was given a court appointed attorney. Well after several trips to court the court appointed attorney withdraws and say's she no longer wishes to represent me. I go back to court again to fill out the paper work to get yet another court appointed attorney and the judge assigns me her once again. I have to fill out yet another court appointed sheet to get another attorney. The judge approves the paperwork and resets me for the following month. Once again she is assigned to be my attorney. I again go in and the judge denies my paperwork after already approving me before I left. I have had to go thru this over 10 times. By law can the judge approve my paperwork for a court appointed attorney and then once I get to court not approve it since it was already approved? Like I explained I travel 2 hours for court and each time they reset me because they keep saying something is wrong with my paperwork although it's always approved before I leave the courthouse. Is there anything I can do legally?

A VA doctor gave me 25 mg of Dip hen Hydra mine even after knowing I drove 50 minutes alone from out of town to be treated. This drug was administered around 1pm. It is now 8pm and she says that I should be good to drive however when researching on line it says the drug takes 24 hours to leave the system. Is this true?
