Could I get more than 6 years in prison this time?
The most you could us 3.5 years of suspended time for the violation plus whatever they gave you on the new dui. It...
I had driven for about 13 hours to get to Salem Virginia for a shut down job. I decided to have a few drinks while I sat in my vehicle in the hotel parking lot so I could smoke since the hotel is 100% smoke free. It was cold that night so I had the vehicle running using the heater and I feel asleep. The police came through the parking lot and woke me up and saw the empty beers and asked me to submit to a field sobriety test which I refused because I thought I was on private property and had permission to drink in the parking lot from the hotel management. So I was arrested and charged with DWI.
Stay off the internet and stop posting evidence against yourself.

How do I get a Virginia license after getting a DUI in Georgia?
I got a DUI, first offense, in Georgia, about 2-3 years ago. I have to take a weekend DUI class/online class of about 30 hours to have it reinstated. I have recently moved to Virginia and want to know what I need to do to get a valid Virginia license. Do I just need to take the class and go to DMV here or is there something I need do in Georgia?
I got my first dwi in 2000 and second one in 2007. After the second one I realized that I need to make amends in my life and since then stopped drinking. I also had my first kid in 2008 and presently I have 3 kids. I wanted to set a good example for my kids and be there for them all the time, so I had no option than to quit drinking and lead a good life style.
In 2007, I applied for citizenship, went through all the steps and at the interview day, the interviewer told me a decision cannot be made at that time, so I will hear from them soon. My case was approved but I was never notified. Three months later I went to their office to inquire and I was told my case has been approved but the finger printing has expired. Which means I had to go in for a new finger printing. Unfortunately, whiles waiting for the fingerprinting letter I got my second dwi, and based on that I was denied.
Since my second dwi in 2007, I have not even had a traffic ticket and wants to keep maintaining such a good life style as an example for my kids.
Is it a good time to apply personally, or do I need and immigration lawyer in this regard. Thanks.
If you remained sober for the last 10 years as you explain here, then go ahead and apply for citizenship.
Charged with a DUI and refusal after not saying anything because I was arrested for reckless driving and read my Miranda
When I was pulled over for trying to avoid an accident in front of me and behind me. I swerved out the way almost getting hit by another car behind me. I was stopped and questioned why I was stopped numerous times as I was grabbing my license and registration. I was pulled out the car, slammed against my car and placed under arrest for reckless driving and read my rights after I had asked to speak with the officer's supervisor. The officer asked me have I had anything to drink to night and I said water damn drinks. He asked me to take a soberity test, I said nothing and then I would like to speak to your supervisor. Then he said I refused and read me a paper about refusing. Was locked up for a week before arraignment. Bond out a few days later
It sounds like it is time to lawyer up and plan your defense. I am certain the officer well tell a different story and...
What if i change my mind the day after accepting a plea deal on a 1st offense dui bac(.08) and decide for court to hear the case
3-14-17 I accepted a plea deal with my lawyer and the prosecutor for a 1st offense dui (bac .08) because of pressure from my lawyer. I have changed my mind today and want the court to hear the case, can i do that? It was a police checkpoint, i was very cooperative and completely honest. The lawyer said the officer lobbied to have the charge reduced and the prosecutor refused. The outcome was 1 year suspension of license, Ignition interlock device, asap program, 90 days jail with 90 days suspended and 3 years probation, and $500 fine with $250 suspended. My lawyer said even if were reduced to a less charge, i would still have to do all the programs(asap, ignition interlock device) and the judge could also impose the jail time if we go to court.
