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.

Is my Department of Licensing hearing for a DUI or speeding?
I got pulled over in Washington for a DUI. I was arrested brung to the police station and then dropped off at home. The officer gave me three papers. The impound for my car. The ticket. And the Department of Licensing hearing request. I'm going to speak to a lawyer tomorrow. But my question is, why does the ticket only say I have to pay 310 for speeding? It says nothing about DUI. But yet I got a paper for the DOL hearing for DUI. Is it possible my lawyer can convince the judge that I didn't get a DUI but is losing my licenses for speeding only? Or is this all set in stone. I'm in the military and got arrested by civilian police off base. I don't want to tell them until after I speak to my lawyer. So do I have a DUI or speeding conviction?
If an officer pulls you over for speeding, you can be issued a speeding ticket. That is a different problem than your...
Probation told me I have to go to AA for my DUI in my deferral program. I am non religious and technically an atheist.
My probation officer told me I had to attend AA. There are no non religious groups in my area. Can my Probation officer still make me go? I am not religious and I am technically an atheist. I am on a deferral program for a DUI in Washington State. My probation officer told me I had to go to AA, and said that's part of the program, however I know people in my exact same situation that do not attend AA. According to my research and case law, the state cannot make me go to AA since there is a nonreligious AA in my immediate area. According to the AA website the closest non religious AA is in Seattle or in tumwater. I live in tacoma. Should I just go to court stating the establishment clause?
Serenity counseling in Fife is non religious
Can a breathalyzer test results change for a DUI charge?
I got arrested for DUI. I have a lawyer and everything and we are trying to get it reduced to reckless driving. I was just emailed the police report. It states that my breathalyzer results changed from .084 to .10 on the way the police station. Should I tell my lawyer? Can that actually happen, can the results change? Did the cop lie? Is my chances of having my sentence reduced better or worse? This is my first offense and have no priors I just want this to go away.
Of course they change. This is a HYPO and the measurements aren't meant to be realistic.... Example: Lets say a...
Is it true that a tongue piercing and/or implant dental work can cause the results to be inaccurate? I have both.
Was arrested for dui. The officer never checked my mouth before having me blow on the machine. If you have a tongue piercing, would you be asked to remove it before the breathalyzer?
Even if that were true, it wouldn't result in the test getting thrown out. It would go to the weight of the evidence...
Can you get kicked out of the army for a DUI?
I'm in the army at the Tacoma base in WA. I got arrested for a DUI by civilian police off base this weekend. He pulled me over for speeding and gave me a ticket. He asked me to walk a straight line and everything and I passed. Then he got the breathalyzer and I failed. Then he took me to the station. Then he took me home and have me a paper for department of licensing DUI hearing request. This is day 2 and I'm panicking. I need to stay in the army because my career is about to take off. I am a specialist in the army about to take an exam for a hire rank. Do I have to tell them? Will they kick me out? Will I lose my titles? Am I going to jail?
It is understandable that you are panicking, but you need to try to remain calm and go hire an attorney immediately. My...
