What is going to happen to my GA lincense and How do I get driving relief?
I recently moved to GA 3 months ago. This week my license was revoked in Illinois for 1 year due to my 2nd dui.
You have to get the license reinstated in Illinois. That we lift the hold on your Georgia license.
Can chasing a dui hit and run suspect down from escape help me with my own dui?
I am currently awaiting trial for a dui hit and run. My attorney feels that it's not a very strong case the state has, anyway today my wife and I were driving home when a car sped passed us cut someone off then hit a car. Then drive away from that and head on into another car. ThE passengers in that car were hurt pretty bad. The guy got out and tried to walk away from scene. I jump on my phone with 911 and follow the guy about a mile away on foot until officers arrived. My wife stayed and pulled the two injured out of the car they were stuck in. Awesome thing for her to do being 5 mths pregnant with twins. But what I'm curious to know is it possible for this unfortunate situation to help my current case at all in any way? In my case I bumped a parked car and had paint transfer. I denied all sobriety tests and no one was hurt like what happend today. I'd ask my attorney but she is on maternity leave.
It's shows good moral character, which would help in sentencing, but I don't necessarily see your case going that far along.
Does DeKalb County GA participate in the 2 for 1 credit?
I was convicted for a 2nd DUI in DeKalb County, GA. The sentence I received was 5 days in jail with credit for 8 hours time served. Once I report to jail will I be eligible for the 2 for 1 credit or will it be more probable for me to have to do the entire 4 days and 16 hours?
Your question entirely depends on if the jail gives you 2 for 1 (which would be an odd scheme for Dekalb county)....
DUI in GA. What is the possibility I get the case dismissed without a lawyer? What is the worse-case scenario?
I have a question, back in 2012 I received a DUI (.086) in GA no accident. At that time, I got arrested and served 30 days in jail for a previously unpaid ticket (expired tag with a FTA). Subsequently, I lost my job. After serving the 30 days, I got out, missed court, and moved to another state. Fast forward till today, since then I have paid off all the tickets, got my license reinstated, completed DUI school, got the new FTA cleared (for missing court after released from jail), and now have new court date set in Aug 2016 which I will attend. I did discover that the officer that pulled me over initially no longer works for the county.
It's possible that it will be dismissed because the officer no longer works for the county if the State can't get him...
What is the process and actions that I must pursue to obtain this temporary restricted license?
I am 66 with a clean driving record for 50 years. I was arrested in Tennessee in February and charged with DUI. I pleaded guilty and paid my fines, spent 48 hours in jail. My license has been suspended for 1 year. I need to obtain a restricted GA drivers license for work related purposes. I have a signed court document indicating that this was my first DUI conviction.
Hopefully a licensed GA attorney will respond to your question because you will need to speak to someone who is...
Would it be best to retain my previous DUI lawyer or hire a new layer for the violation of probation situation?
I was arrested recently arrested for driving on a suspended license. I am currently on probation for DUI while this happened. My mom was in the car with me when I was arrested for driving with a suspended license. I was driving her car because she twisted her ankle walking out of Chipotle. I was pulled over it was for having a headlight out and no tail lights which I didn't realize because it is not the vehicle I usually drive. The officer ran my license and found it was suspended. I did not inform the officer of my mother's injury because was scared as to what was going on and my mother wasn't able to articulate what was happening because she too was shocked with how the situation was unfolding. I know this is a new arrest so it counts as a violation of my probation for the DUI. I had completed 2/3 of the terms set for my DUI probation including community service and drug/alcohol evaluation. I will inform my probation officer prior to my next meeting. What are my options as far as not having to face jail time for the probation violation? My life is a mess. My probation was in Gwinnett co and my driving without a suspended license was in Forsyth. What are my likely options?
You may or may not have options, we just don't know without more information. Whatever options you may have will...
How does he determine why he contests the suspension?
My son is going to complete his own administrative hearing request regarding his DUI license suspension without use of an attorney. He is within his ten day time frame. He needs to drive back and forth to work as well as getting his wife to the doctor (she's pregnant and due in March).
This is a difficult question to answer, and it really highlights why the best way to give yourself a chance of victory...
