Would I be eligible for unemployment if a DUI that's been pending for over a year just now goes through since new employment?
Ive had a pending DUI for over a year. Lost my old job but received employment since but I drive a company vehicle. I'm not sure on company policies with respect to this situation so I can't give any input there. But my general question is would I be eligible for unemployment since the DUI had no relevance to employment up until now? Also it hasn't officially gone through yet, if the DUI is generally a problem with unemployment in NJ, would it make more sense to attempt to get fired or laid off by some means? And if that's the case, how so?
You need to ask an attorney more familiar with the unemployment regs. If you are terminated for cause it may be a...
My son's father was arrested for a DUI twice within a three month period. What are his chances of having them both dismissed.
Both arrests were made in Burlington County NJ. The first in Delran and the second in Lumberton. He also has a current Felony charge for possession of a controlled substance (marijuana)
Dwis do not get dismissed easily. His only chance is to hire a lawyer. It also sounds like some drug counseling would...
How and why should I get an interlock device on my car during license suspension if I can't drive?
I got a second dui conviction and during sentencing the judge ordered I have an interlock device installed for one year during suspension and one year after restoration. I am not allowed to drive, so how do I get the device installed and monitored every 1- 2 months? This makes little sense to me. Why are they asking me to drive a car that I'm not allowed to drive? Will the NJ MVC enforce this or can I just wait until my suspension time is up and get the interlock then?
It makes sure that if you violate the sentence, you cannot violate it while you are also drunk. And because it is the...
I have been denied restoration of my DL by njdmv. After completing IDRC and 3 mo. suspension for dui & pd all fines/surcharges.
I was eligible to get license back 7-26-15. Njdmv is now saying I have to be reevaluated by IDRC because they found a DUI from 1986 on my abstract. That is 29 years ago. What is the statutory time period between offenses? Do DMV and idrc have the right to do this after I already satisfied all the requirements of the courts judgements?
Hi again. You will have to get a hearing with DMV. Then if DMV declines your request to forego this additional...
Officer lied on Arrest Report for dui can I get case dismissed for lack of probable cause?
I was pulled over for speeding I had no signs of being intoxicated. The officer asked me to step out the vehicle and do field sobriety test after I admitted to having 3 drinks. Officer lied on his arrest report claiming I had slurred speech, trouble standing, failed a test I actually passed, and most his observations were clearly cut and paste from other reports. He also failed to conduct the walk and turn test properly making me that 7 instead of 9 steps. I have the officer's dashcam footage and its obvious he lied about 80% of his report. Can I get the case dismissed due to lack of probable cause and clearly the officers credibility is shot.
Unfortunately, you are not going to be able to do that on your own. It is 1 in a million when representing yourself....
If someone was convicted of vehicular homicide and part of the sentence was loss of license for 5yrs, is there a chance to lift?
Convicted of vehicular homicide, sentenced to 3yrs SP and 5yrs loss of license. The 5yrs loss of license doesn't start until the 3yrs in prison is complete. the 3yrs was served and completed back on 19/14/2012. currently having 2 1/2 years left with loss of license left. Not having a license is causing so many issues in my life mainly being limited with work capabilities. What is the chance that I can go back to court and get this suspension lifted to 2 1/2 yrs and be completely done with it since i have already have served 2 1/2 yrs of the suspension. Can someone please let me know if I have a chance at all and if so how to go about this process? Thank you for your time!
There are a number of ways to challenge this, but they are all extremely fact sensitive. You need to find a lawyer...
I was recently charged w a dui in Gettysburg pa. 2/15 I have a previous dui when I was 18 six years ago.
Looks like I am facing 90 days in jail and 30 days house arrest also to be served in Pa . I have several important people in my life writing character letters on my behalf which I will give to my lawyer in hopes of liency when sentenced. I was expecting 2 years loss license and major fines but I now have to quit my job in DC and hoped that I could go home to NJ for house arrest what is best wording for such letter?
Since you have a lawyer, you should only contact your lawyer about your case.
