The judge reduce my class D Felony OWI to an class A Misdemeanor after the completion of probation, am I still a felon?
I had to write a letter to the judge, he in return sent it to the state. I received a letter from the judge saying it was reduced to a misdemeanor.
You'll need to send the order as well Asa copy of the chronological case summary to the Indiana State Police Records...
My fiance had a hardship license one before due to a lack of car insurance. His license was suspended this time because he got a speeding ticket while driving for his job and his place of work didn't send in the neccesary paperwork so he got notified this week that his license is suspended for a whole year. We can't survive without his job. Is it possible to get another hardship license?
Was this a work vehicle? Does he have insurance himself? If so, he may be able provide proof of that coverage and...
I have an OWI charge against me in Indiana. How do I go about negotiating a plea agreement prior to my court date?
Blew a .12, charged with Misdemeanor A (endangerment since I was speeding and took a corner too fast).
You don't, unless the deal is to plead guilty to the OWI. Probably not then, either. Prosecutors usually do not get...
Can Indiana police impound a car if they cannot etablish probable cause under Indiana's DUI/OWI law?
Can Indiana police impound a car if they cannot get a positive reading on two portable breathlizer tests (PBT) consented to by a DUI suspect who also consents to being transported down town to take another breathalizer which does not rise to the level of intoxication under Indiana law (BAC .08 percent or greater)? The DUI suspect infomed police that he was not intoxicated during the road tests given, and after having passed the BAC down town the police gave him a ride home, but had already towed his friend's vehicle, which was in every respect legal to drive. However, the DUI suspect had to pay a $150.00 towing expense the next morning and would like to know if he can retain that expense.
This is a rather unfortunate issue. I've come across this issue multiple times in my DUI practice. The short answer...
i am a 29 year old male. i have not been arrested for the past 12 years. when i was a juvenile i was arrested on a misdemeanor charge but my record was supposedly expunged a year later. i was pulled over the other night for having a headlight out and i had been drinking that evening. my breath test came back at .16% BAC. exactly twice the legal limit in indiana . now note that i am 6 foot 4 and about 240 pounds so drinks dont tend to have as much of an affect on me as they do on much smaller people. so while my BAC was quite high, i had spread those drinks over several hours and was not what i call "drunk". i have spoken to an attorney but have not paid him yet . he did not make me think he could help alot with my case but i really dont have any knowledge of the legal system. basically i am wondering if i should spend the money on an attorney because i know i am going to lose my license and my job requires me to drive customers vehicles so if i dont have a license, i cannot work or make any money. i am fine with being on probation and i am okay with taking a short class of some sort, hopefully not one that will cost more than a few hundred dollars. a friend of mine recently got a DUI and he claims that while in court he saw several people who had the same charge but had not hired an attorney end up with the same sentence as him after he paid alot for one. and he went to the same court as i am. so i am wondering what are my chances of getting a lesser sentence if i hire a lawyer? i hate to pay a guy $650 for him to make a few calls and not much else. he claims that the court/judge i am to see is a very strict one who does not like to work with attorneys much. any help you can give would be great , thanks.
One of the things and attorney can obtain for you is a conditional license. That license allows you to serve a 30 day...
My boyfriend has had 3 duis and was scheduled for jury trial last month. When we got there, there wasn't a trial, only the judge asking what he plead. His PD told him to plead guilty to the intial charge and the Habitual offender charge. My boyfriend did not want to do this but his PD basically told him he would be better off this way than to take it to trial. The issue is, he was on probation at the time of his arrest for his 3rd dui, so was taken back to jail. While he was in jail he was given a plea agreement of 4 yrs, do 2 in prison. His PD never showed this plea agreement to him therefore he never got to sign it. They also extended it, PD never told him. Now hes looking at 11 yrs-w/no plea and wants a new PD. His sentencing date is in a week. What can he do? This isn't fair at all.
He can request a new public defender. It will be up to the court whether or not he is granted a new one. Most likely,...
