I have a question for the state of Alabama given the following scenario: After leaving a bar, you and your friend are both drunk. You allow your drunk friend to drive your car while you ride drunk as a passenger. On the way home, your friend gets pulled over. What liability as the car owner do you face for giving your drunk friend permission for driving drunk. Does the fact that you are drunk too make a difference?
Liability would only be involved if there were an accident or damages involved. You may be asking whether you can be...

I know, I know..I am a procrastinator. I am considering going with a court appointed attorney, at first, and then if I don't like the way things are being handled, hiring an attorney.

My profession is working as a paramedic and I really need to have the best representation for my case..One last bit of important information, I am on unsuprivised probation for a non alcohol related offense..Is that going to increase my chances of being put in jail on my initial hearing? Thanks....

I am in the military stationed in Germany. I got a DUI 16 months ago by the German police. I was turned over to the MP. The whole matter was handled administratively (GOMOR and RFC evaluation). The military licensing authority (PMO) in Germany reported the incident to Alabama (where my stateside DL is issued) and now it shows up as "Activity - Citation, Conviction Date-XX-XX-2013, Description- DUI Liquors" on my driving record. Additionally, my AL license shows suspended and it is my understanding that I must pay reinstatement fee to get that lifted. There was never a conviction, NJP or other type of hearing. Does this sound right? Can I get the entry removed from my Alabama D/L record?
