How difficult is it to get a dui trial postponed for 6 months after initial court date?
The reason behind this question is two things...1) It will give me more time to come up with the finances. 2) I am on unsuprivised probation until April 2015. I would like to be off that before the trial.
The criminal justice system will not be bending to suit your needs. Sorry, but you do not get what you want for the...
In regard to my recent dui, should I hire an attorney that practices in the city/county or an out of county attorney?
I have heard different opinions in this matter. I know of an attorney that has a great reputation but works 120 miles away from the city in which I was arrested. I was also told that an attorney that works often with in the jurisdiction that I was arrested would generally bring better results.
It can help to know the local system and the players. However, an out of jurisdiction attorney can find out a lot of...
Can I go to DMV and get a license before they suspend it after DUI
Got DUI, cops took license but it won't be suspended for another 30 days. Can I go to dmv and get another one?
Not without breaking the law: When you go to the DMV, you have to sign a statement that you have not been arrested for...
I missed my court date in fort payne alabama for a dui. I had a court appointed attorney which i did not make use of.
Would hiring an attorney help me resolve my case. Or will I more than likely have to serve jail time for missing the sentence.
If you missed court then a warrant was likely issued for your arrest. This does not mean you will serve jail time on...
What am I looking at on my court date?
I was charged with Minor in consumption in Troy, AL on June 15, 2015. This is a second offense minor in consumption for Pike County. I wrecked my car when this occurred. I was wondering what I am looking at, and if I should get an attorney. I am 19 years old.
Best to get a local criminal lawyer to fight it so hopefully you can avoid any penalties.
Once my DUI fines are paid can I get my license back despite a warrant?
I got a DUI in Florida several years ago and my Alabama license was suspended. I followed the initial procedures and got my license back originally. I later missed a payment on my fines and it was suspended again. I had moved back to Alabama and was doing my probation by phone as I was a first time offender and low risk. I thought my probation was complete and it appears it wasn't because I have a Florida warrant for failure to complete my probation. Any time I've had a traffic violation Alabama police have noted the warrant and told me to take care of it when I can. I'm about to pay the last of my old FL fines which in theory should release my license to be reinstated in Alabama. Will they block my reinstatement in FL based on the warrant? I plan to take care of it after getting my DL.
I am not licensed in Florida, so out of respect for any answer offered by an experienced attorney licensed in Florida...
I was arrested for a DUI, do I need to renew my driver's licence in state or should I keep my out of state one?
My DL is set to expire at the end of this month and I need to get it renewed while my DUI case continues. I have an out of state licence *not* a domestic one. Should I get a domestic DL or would it be advantageous to renew out of state again (where I'm originally from)? The reason why I ask, is that when I was arrested for my DUI, they took my licence but then gave it back to me when I made bail, it was never suspended, and I suspect the reason why was because it was not a domestic DL. I could be incorrect in this line of thinking, however.
When you move to another state, you have to learn about the law in that state regarding how long you have, to get a...
