Can I get a license in another state if I was stopped for a dwi but my license is not yet suspended?
Okay if I got a dwi making this the 3rd one in 3 years. Can I get a license in another state if my license is still active and I haven't been to court and got a conviction? I know that opens me up to getting the new license revoked by the new state if I was convicted but if I don't go back to court I won't get convicted. Would this allow me to safely keep the new license? I also know that opens me up to a warrent out for my arrest but my state doesn't extradite across state lines for misdemeanor offenses. I'm just worried about keeping the new license.

How can I get my drivers license back for a out of state N.C. D.U.I?
About 6 years ago I recieved a D.U.I. in North Carolina. 15 days later I got another one. I completed my 24 hours of community service and paid all the fines so that first DUI was 100% taken care of. In the mean time I moved to Wisconsin. I traveled back and fourth to NC 3 times that year for court dates but started a new job in wisconsin and missed the last appearance. Now I have a 2 year old son, own and opperate a technology company, own a house and have everything except for my drivers liceanse. Driving is a daily risk I have taken for the last 6 years to be able to make a living and now more than ever take care of my family. I keep running into brick walls and need a liceanse for so many things. How can I get my drivers liceanse back without returning to North Carolina? Is it possible to get the case sent up here for sentencing or is it possible to get North Carolina to drop the case if I agree to never return. I am unable to recieve a occupational license in Wisconsin because of this as well. Any input would be great, the lawyer I had down there has disappeared with my money so I am out of ideas at this point. There has to be a way.

Will DWI mistrial most likely be retried?
DWI Superior Court Mistrail question. My case is still pending in Disctrict Court but if I'm found guilty and appeal for a Superior Court trial, what happens if there's a hung jury and a mistrial is declared? It is likely the DA would re-try the case? I'm just weighing my options due to the legal costs. Also, do a lot of DWI cases end up with a hung jury?
Asker, many cases in general end in a hung jury... it's difficult to get 12 people to decide on something and there's...
