Can one be arrested for a DUI while in the passenger seat of a vehicle that is not running and on private property?
The officer states that he had passed the vehicle and after running the plates learned that the registered owner had a suspended license. The officer tried to pursue the vehicle with no success, and decided to go to the registered owners place of residence. Along the way he spots the vehicle in a driveway and pulls in behind it. The officer pulled into the driveway approached the vehicle and asked the person in the passenger seat to exit the vehicle on the drivers side "for the officers safety". The officer arrests the individual for aggravated DUI for driving under the influence with no valid license. The video of the arrest shows the officer driving with his lights on with no vehicle or taillights in sight for 2 miles before entering a driveway behind a vehicle that is not running.
The officer can make the arrest but whether the charges stick and the state can make its case will be up to the skill...
Question about insurance after DUI, not convicted.
Hello, I got arrested for a DUI months back and was put under court supervision (I was told that means I was not convicted), but I haven't seen my car insurance go up at all. Will they eventually? Am I supposed to notify my carrier? My license is still suspended do I need to do anything special insurance wise when getting it back at the DMV?
Your arrest would not have been visible to insurance but you got a Statutory Summary Suspension so they will know you...
Where/when do I get my physical driver's license back after baiid program completion?
I have asked my lawyer about this but just wanted a second opinion. I am finishing up my baiid program and never got my license back from the court. I would like to know when/where I could get my physical license back. I had a extension added to the baiid suspension because of a high reading and part of my court supervision has a no alcohol stipulation. My lawyer says I could go to the court house at any time and just grab it and he's never heard of someone's supervision being revoked for a baiid extension. My question is does getting my license back from the court mean they look up the driving record first, seeing the extension? Should i leave the license there until my supervision is over or pick it up and risk the possibility or them seeing that. All my cs is done and fines paid.
When fines are paid the clerk usually mails the license back in Whiteside or your lawyer can go sign off on it at the...
Completing BAIID after an extension.
Hello, I have an mddp after my first DUI and had an 3 month extension added to my time (I sent a letter I worked on with my lawyer and did not admit to drinking to the SOS and the excuse ended up not being excepted). My question is, after I already have gotten an extension on the mddp and the interlock, what will happen after the extension is over and I completed the BAIID time? Is there another "trial/meeting" with the SOS to discuss getting my license back? I have a "no alcohol" stipulation with my court supervision, will this cause my supervision to be revoked or be unable to get my license back? Sorry for the many questions, any help would be greatly appreciated.
You have an attorney you mentioned in your question. Ask him or her these questions. SOS hearing are notoriously...
Received a 3 month extension on a BAIID device, now what?
I got a letter from the Secretary of State saying my statutory summary suspension has been extended for 3 months a few days after sending my letter of explanation in. This is my only violation, what steps do I take now? I have a supervision stipulation requiring no alcohol, will this automatically get a petition to revoke my supervision?
No. Not at all automatic. In fact, it would be a little surprising if the SAO even noted it. Make sure you extend...
Is it typical for a level 2 moderate risk DUI have no alcohol condition as part of their court supervision terms?
As part of my court supervision no alcohol can be consumed for the term. Is this normal for a first time DUI with no priors?
Every jurisdiction is different. Based on the town that you listed, I am guessing your DUI is out of Whiteside County....
Questions involving mddp cancelations.
I have a MDDP for a first time dui with a BAC over .16 and I believe I'm a level II moderate risk (not exactly where to find that on my paperwork but I did 10 hours of Driver Risk Education and 12 hours Intervention Counseling with 100 hours of community service, all are complete and fines all paid). If I do have a supervision requiring no alcohol and have a BAIID violation is there a chance that my mddp suspension is just extended or is it an automatic cancel if the explanation given to the SOS is found unsatisfactory? And if the explanation is not accepted can a get a work driving permit and how long do I have to wait to get one?
You should consult with your attorney, or a local attorney familiar with these issues as they are somewhat interwoven...
