Do I need to wait out NC's 1 year DWI suspension to get my license back? or do I only have to complete GA's 120 day suspension?
Georgia resident with a DWI conviction in NC. NC DWI conviction requires a mandatory 1 year suspension. However, I have a GA license and I think I would qualify for GA's 120 day reinstatement provided I complete the necessary requirements for reinstatement.
I've always said that it doesn't hurt to try.
Can you have 3 DUI charges on 1 arrest?
A friend of mine was arrested on a DUI charge. But his charges show 3 DUI charges so his bail is triple the amount. Is this possible? Is there anything we can do to get the bail reduced? BTW This is in Gwinnett County.
Is this a situation where your friend had several children in the car? Or is he just being charged with DUI in 3...
Will I go to jail? Should I postpone the date? How likely is it to get out of jail in this situation?
I got a DUI and a Hit and Run two and a half years ago. I have only had one run in with law since at that was a 14mph over speeding ticket last year. I just got a letter in the mail to go to court. I have already completed DUI class and the clinical evaluation with the recommended treatment for this case. I am 35 weeks pregnant and I go before the judge in two and a half weeks. My lawyer keeps telling me the judge won't put me in jail but he was a cheap lawyer and I want to double check because I would be looking at, I believe, 13 days in jail. 3 days for a second DUI and 10 for a Hit and Run. I would definitely have the baby in jail if that is the case plus I would be missing weekly Dr appointments. Lastly, I want to go to court on this date so that I can be seen pregnant and I am hoping that will give me less of a chance of jail so that I am not taken away from my baby at all. Does it seem likely or unlikely that she would put me in jail on that date?

Does anyone have recent experience with Geico and DUI's?
I was recently charged with DUI, and it also included damage to my own car and nothing else. If I have full coverage and no claims for years, will my insurance still cover this? I do plan on working to prevent a conviction to that charge, hopefully a lesser.
A DUI involving a wreck means that your insurance may "hang you out to dry." You need to contact individual attorneys...

On what basis would you think you were being charged with DUI? There is no driving, no physical tests, no breath test...
Is there any way out of a DUI?
I got into a car accident in and was subsequently arrested for DUI...open container and failure to maintain lane. I had a beer can in the car from the night before. I was offered a plea which merged the open container and fail to maintain and ability to plead nolo. The DUI would be 1 year probation. Is there anyway to save my driving record from the DUI
Yes, by hiring an attorney to represent you.
