I was cited with a DUI last night. Tomorrow is my initial court hearing. What should I do at this initial hearing?
I am 53 years of age and have a clean driving record, with the exception of a "failure to control" citation that I was given last year. This is my first, (and only) DUI. I hit the median in the center of the highway and probably totaled my wife's car. There were no other people or vehicles involved. I took a breathalyzer test and blew a .15. - also I did not have insurance on my wife's car.

Would this ever be allowed ?
My ex boyfriend arrested for dui. says he had to spend 3 days in a hotel and was able to go to work and back home. claims he had a 10000 dollar bond from a friends father putting up his home as bond. now he says he has to go back to court for sentensing and his lawyer is saying he might be able to get him house arrest for a month instead of 30 days jail tme. First is this possible, and secondly if he was arrested and has since moved to a new place, where would he serve that 30 days house arrest. He claims he would be able to maintain a job and drive to work. this answer determines if i ever trust him again. The person who put up his bond, if there was a bond, is an alcoholic facing charges of her own. he came to me for help.
Typically the 3 day hotel program is part of the court's sanction, however his attorney may have had him complete the...
Can multiple DUIs be sealed/expunged?
Between 1990 and 1999, I pleaded "no contest" to three DUI's (two in Ohio and one in Virginia). Each was a misdemeanor. I complied with all fines and courts' sentencing. These are now affecting life insurance rates and I would like to not have to report them. I was a different person and it was a different time. Are these going to continue to haunt me for the rest of my life?
DUI's can not be expunged under Ohio law. You would need to consult with a Virginia attorney to determine if your...

Is there a way to expedite forensic lab testing of a drug for an F5 charge of possession of illegal drug?
It might be a legal drug. It might not be a drug at all. It could be an illegal drug... I have no idea. My lawyer says that if it's what the courts think it is, I will get probation.... It's just really pissing me off though that I have to wait to determine if I'm innocent or not. I want to get done with this as soon as possible and determine if I need to make any immediate life changes or not. If I get probation, I'll probably need to quit my job, since I work 7:00 am to 5:30 pm Mon-Fri as a GM, and it's a non-negotiable schedule, and sometimes it's more or less if I'm lucky. My next pretrial and trial dates have been set 3 months in advance last month... So November.... It's totally unfair that I don't know if I'm innocent or guilty, and the lab basically has had 60+ days already and it still isn't tested. Can I send money somewhere to speed up the process??? I honestly don't know what to do until November. What should I be doing at this point?
Not really. Unfortunately labs across the state are backed up. I'm not aware of anything you can do - or your...
What should I expect in court?
I smoked weed before I left the house to go and help a friend move or else her stuff was going to get thrown out. 3 or 4 hours have past and we still smelled like weed and as we was leaving that town I got pulled over. With us smelling like that she made me get out and do sobriety tests asked me questions and I admitted to smoking before I left the house then searched me and put me in cuffs and put me in the back of the car. She said she was arresting me for ovi and my lisence plate wasnt were it needed to be. I was the only one detained and they didn't keep me over night because I coaperated. I submitted to a drug test too. What should I expect in court? This would be my first offense and first time getting arrested. Will they send me to jail?
An OVI really isn't a laughing matter. You should get an attorney. With the help of an attorney it is likely you can...
