If your question is about getting your license back, you should be able to get WA license if you are eligible to do so...
I have completed Advanced Dui course and Advanced Dui Class in Florida on a12 year old Dui Case in Florida.4th offense.
Question is: I cant get Florida to release my License unless I am Licensed in there State with a interlock and Counseling.There law States that I have to have the Interlock but I do not live there anymore.I have read into the Law and see It's Interlock -or Counseling not both.So it's up to the descresition of the officer.Not what the Dept of Motor Vehicle's Statutes actually are.Washington will not except anything unless Florida releases my Florida License.The law at the time of my conviction stated interlock installed for 6 months.Now Florida wants Five year interlock and five years of counseling.Best to my Knowledge I only have the 6 moth requirement that I belive I can handle....Thanks Danny daniel_mckenzie33@yahoo.com
You are correct that Washington won't allow you to be licensed until Florida says that you are clear. For Florida...
Interlock usage, without driving, is a court monitoring violation?
My negligent 1st degree driving sentence allows for alcohol consumption but not driving with a BAC > 0.000. I naively thought I should use the device to see when it was safe to drive, causing BAC's x 3 > 0.000 without attempting to start the car (both the BACs and not starting the car recorded by the interlock provider). Will this count as a violation, even though I did not try to start the car?
Whether you committed a probation violation depends on the exact terms of your probation. Without seeing the court...
Do I need an attorney after I took care of a DUI charge 17 years ago in Oregon but NOW they are saying that I didn't?
I was in Oregon at the time of the DUI and I have lived in Wa state the whole time and still do 17 years later. I took care of it: assessment, victims panel, treatment and gave the courts a certificate of completion. Fast forward 17 years later, I went to renew my license last week here in Washington state, like I have since then, and they told me that my license is suspended from Oregon! This was a surprise to me!!! Now the DMV in oregon is asking me to produce the certificate again (which I did not keep after all of these years) in order to get my license back! No records exist from that far back at the place I completed it at. So now, they say I have to do the treatment all over again! Even though I don't even drink. I was a kid back then!!! Do I need a lawyer?????
At a minimum, you should consult with an Oregon DUI defense attorney. They may know some secrets about how things were...
Can I form a suit against a drunk driver?
My parked van was recently hit by a drunk driver, who then fled the scene of the accident. Once home, his wife and daughter called the police and reported it. His insurance is agreeing to pay out a bit over the Kelly Blue Book value of my van. My problem is, I paid my van off two years ago and had no intention of financing a new vehicle any time soon. This whole situation has caused a great deal of hardship to my family. I took great care of my van and planned to drive it another 3-4 years. Do I have a valid case against this irresponsible driver? I mean, I'm not trying to capitalize on the situation, but the amount his insurance offered will only scratch the surface of what it will cost me to finance another vehicle--not to mention the stress that comes with that.
You can sue him but it is unlikely that you can get that much more than the Blue Book value as the financing hassle is...
DUI charge
I got charge with DUI awhile back it was supposed to be plead down reckless driving, I got charged for DWLS 2 in July 2014 and had a warrant out for my arrest for the DWLS cause I missed court. I went today and found out I had a warrant for the DUI too because I broke my agreement. But on my criminal background it still says DUI instead of reckless driving can I request and get a retrial?
What it sounds like is that you were doing some type of diversion or continuance on conditions so that if you complied...
DUI and DWLS 2
Today I went to court to quash a warrant for DWLS 2, (pretrial is in June) they said in the warrant my bail was 1500 but walked away paying nothing I did find out I had a warrant for my DUI case because I broke my agreement for my DUI after being caught driving again. What do I look like I could be facing? I have other charges in the past for driving without a license.
I am not a WA attorney, but can tell from your question that more information is needed. One of the primary...
