I got into a minor accident. No one was hurt. I was arrested for a dui and later when reporting the claim to my insurance company, discovered my insurance had lapsed. The policy has been reinstated but it is not retroactive for the time of the accident. What can I expect will be the legal repercussions. The court and officer did not realize my insurance had lapsed at the time of arrest. Can I be arrested again when I appear in court as an uninsured motorist? Will I be able to get a provisional license?

Can u get a bench warrant lifted by paying the fine. Was put on a payment plan for a dui case, but couldnt keep up the payments.
Once i couldnt keep up the payments, they issued me a court date telling me i would have to have the payment in full over 1000. Which i missed because i knew i didnt have the money and was gonna have to do 30 days.

Over 20 years ago I received a DUI in NC. And over 10 in SC . Was arrested in NC in Jan in NC. I was pulled for a expired tag
I was arrested because the police said I smelled like alcohol and arrested and taken to do the breath test and blew three times. 1st , I was in a borrowed car & didnt know the tag was bad and second the machine didn't register so I got a refusual. I have been to court twice and both times the policemen didn't show. The prosecutor is now wanting to supeona the man because he no longer works for the police force.

I was arrested for DUI in CT. I entered their pre-trial alcohol education program, court file was sealed, then I completed the program and the charge was dismissed by the court. I now live in South Carolina. Although the charge was dismissed, will the arrest still show up on a background check here? I am probably going to be offered a job soon and their application asked about convictions but not arrests. Although I was not lying by saying that I have no convictions, since I don't, could the arrest still come up on a check and cause problems? I've read somewhere that Connecticut is a state where employers are discouraged from checking your arrest history but I don't know about South Carolina.
It depends. If they search fbi records then yes, it will probably show up (just the arrest). Get fingerprinted, fill...
