I know Colorado has no "look back" period when sentencing DUIs as adults, but what if one one my DUIs occurred as a Juvenile?
I was 15 yrs old and it happend 14 yrs ago. Can they still use that against me when sentencing me as an adult. The differnce would determine whether Im senteced w/ DUI as my 2nd or 3rd.
Thie answer to your question is probably so. Most all DUIs are charged, in County Court and not Juvenile Court. When...
What are my options on a failure to appear and no compliance on a DUI in 2013 ?
I received a DUI in grand junction co in 2013. I am originally from Wyoming and have been notified that my license is still suspended and that I have a warrant out for my arrest. How much jail time am I facing ? And is it possible the court will accept a eval, community service, and classes this late after sentencing? I work in the oilfield as an electrician and am trying to get my life straightened out so I am trying to get this situation handled.
Based on your info. it appears that you pleaded and were sentenced in Co. It certainly wont hurt you to complete all...
How can I avoid an interlock? I got a ticket for DUR, DUI, and careless driving.
I am 28. I have never had a license. I had a permit that expired a week ago. I was going to get my license but had a ticket for no proof of insurance from 2014, I didn't go to court, so I turned myself in December 2015 and payed the ticket just a week ago, that is why i was given a DUR. I requested a DMV hearing. BAC .188. First offense. I live with my dad and get to borrow his car. Can I avoid an interlock? I wouldn't have a problem with the interlock but I don't own a car. I don't drink it was a stupid choice that night. I couldn't see what lane to turn into and that is why I was given the careless driving charge and pulled over. I am willing to do UA's or probation, getting my license is just super important. I am a single mom of 2 and I just got certified and got a job as a dental assistant. I need to drive my kids to daycare. What can I do? How should I handle the DMV hearing? I can't afford a lawyer, I have a 5 month old and start a job in March. My first court is in April and have not heard about my DMV hearing yet.
This is really a complicated question. Most lawyers will do a free consultation, and some will work with you on...
What are the DUI laws state to state?
I have 3 prior DUI convictions out of Alaska in which the cases are closed. I recently got a DUI in Colorado where I now reside. Will Colorado most likely treat this as my first or my fourth DUI conviction?
Alaska is a member of the interstate compact regarding sharing drivers license information. So, Colorado likely will...

United States v. Raymond Lee Scott & Pre-trial UA's
I am on pre-trial bond release pending a DUI charge in which the prosecution has no evidence of intoxication (dash cam shows me acing roadside). The nerd that is my pretrial supervision officer is alleging that I failed an ETG test for alcohol, despite the fact that I am unable to drink due to my medication and underlying health conditions, pretty ironic situation. Would having my attorney cite United States v. Raymond Lee Scott be adequate to discontinue random UA's due to it violating my 4th, 8th and 14th amendment rights? (as decided by the 9th circuit court of appeals). Furthermore would it be enough to suppress the alleged failed ETG test? Thanks!
Shouldn't your attorney be the one to decide what law he will cite?
Can I do house arrest on a 2nd alcohol related driving under restraint conviction
I don't want to lose my job on this second driving under restraint alcohol related conviction I have provide for my children
This would be a question for the attorney handling this matter for you. If you do not have one, I strongly encourage...
