My commander is giving me a gomar for a dui that happened three years ago and two duty stations ago, what can i do to prevent it
3 years ago i ended up making a bad decision and got a DUI. I was on PCS leave from Germany enroute to fort campbell, ky. I am now at my third duty station here in Fort lewis, wa. I got a letter from the state of wisconsin saying that they are going to suspend my drivers license if i do not complete a drinking education class Ex. (ASAP) so I self enrolled myself in a one day class with ASAP. I had to have my commander sign off on it. I did not tell him why i did due to privacy. my counselor called him stating why i was in the class. After he found out i had a dui enroute to ft campbell and they did not punish me in any way under the UCMJ he is trying to give me a GOMAR now. Can he do that? what can i do about it? any advice i can have i would love to have it. I planned on making this
I suggest you reach out to JAG and consult with them.
Can I form a suit against a drunk driver?
My parked van was recently hit by a drunk driver, who then fled the scene of the accident. Once home, his wife and daughter called the police and reported it. His insurance is agreeing to pay out a bit over the Kelly Blue Book value of my van. My problem is, I paid my van off two years ago and had no intention of financing a new vehicle any time soon. This whole situation has caused a great deal of hardship to my family. I took great care of my van and planned to drive it another 3-4 years. Do I have a valid case against this irresponsible driver? I mean, I'm not trying to capitalize on the situation, but the amount his insurance offered will only scratch the surface of what it will cost me to finance another vehicle--not to mention the stress that comes with that.
You can sue him but it is unlikely that you can get that much more than the Blue Book value as the financing hassle is...
DUI charge
I got charge with DUI awhile back it was supposed to be plead down reckless driving, I got charged for DWLS 2 in July 2014 and had a warrant out for my arrest for the DWLS cause I missed court. I went today and found out I had a warrant for the DUI too because I broke my agreement. But on my criminal background it still says DUI instead of reckless driving can I request and get a retrial?

DUI and DWLS 2
Today I went to court to quash a warrant for DWLS 2, (pretrial is in June) they said in the warrant my bail was 1500 but walked away paying nothing I did find out I had a warrant for my DUI case because I broke my agreement for my DUI after being caught driving again. What do I look like I could be facing? I have other charges in the past for driving without a license.
I am not a WA attorney, but can tell from your question that more information is needed. One of the primary...
I have a warrant for FTA for DUI that was dropped to Reckless driving. Judge says I didn't do my Victim Impact Panel & Alcohol
Awareness class but I did do it & gave the paper to my public defender, who was a fill in for my original PD at the time. Judge said I didn't need to come back to court as long as I turned in the paper. What can I do? How can I prove that I did that? It has been 1 1/2 years ago & I just recently found out about the warrant.
