Kansas Out of state DUI
I was in a motorcycle wreck in 2012 while visiting my mom in Kansas and was taken to the hospital. I was never arrested. I have lived in Mississippi for 20 years now. I did live in Kansas as a child. I just went to have my MS license renewed and was told that Kansas had a block on it and gave me a number to call. The lady at the Kansas DVM said I had been convicted of DUI due to a blood alcohol test done in the hospital. She told me I needed to write a letter stating that I was no longer a resident of Kansas and list my name, ss# address etc along with a money order or check for $25. She said I would then receive a letter of instructions to follow. Is there anything I can do?
I am not licensed to practice law in Kansas, so out of respect for any experienced attorney licensed in Kansas who...
DUI In Kansas
I got arrested on 7-3. The date served on my DC-27 copy it shows a date of 7-4. Today I called the Department of Revenue ( Administrative hearing) and they said that they haven't received the DC-27 from the officer yet. Its being 21 days since my arrest. I read on my copy that the officer needs to turn in the DC-27 within 7 days. Can I get this dismissed since he has not done anything??? I did requested my hearing in time though!
No. If the officer turns the paperwork in late the suspension process will commence. Did you request a hearing on...
I got a DUI in Kansas
Does the officer that arrested me have a time limit to turn in a complete notice of suspension or revocation form and any driver license taken into possession, with a sworn report to the DMV? I got arrested 7-3-2016 today is 7-18-16. I have called the administrative hearing regarding my request for a hearing. And they told me they have received my request but they said that the officer has not sent anything on behalf my DUI. So they pretty much don't have nothing on my DL. My 30 day paper will expired in 2 weeks. So does the officer have a time limit to turn that in?
These matters are mandated by state law so you should talk to a Kansas lawyer who handles criminal matters this...
I got a DUI
I'm in Kansas. My arrest was July 3. Today is July 14. Well 2 days after my arrest for DUI the officer that arrested me got in a accident and killed a lady. I believe it was he's fault and I think he is on administrative leave right now. So I requested my hearing to the administrative hearing in Topeka. I send in my $50 and asking for the officer to be in my hearing. Well I called the administrative Hearing and they keep telling me they don't have nothing on my DL that nothing is being turn in. I called the court and they said that no report has being made either. I only have 30 days before my DL gets suspended.
What is your question? If it is about the hearing, make sure you get verification that you actually tried to schedule...

I am on a first time DUI probation. Told to stay alcohol free. I am just curious if my random uas are also EtG tested?
First time DUI probation for Leawood, KS. I am subject to random UAs and was told I have to remain alcohol free. I am just curious if my random urine samples are EtG tested as well as tested for illegal drugs. I have to take breathalyzer before I give my urine sample.
They probably are. The only safe thing to do is to stop drinking and doing drugs.
