Can an officer take a safe out of a vehicle with a dwi?
My boyfriend got a dwi with my safe in the vehicle. The vehicle is not titled to him, it is titled to my father. However my safe was in the cab of the vehicle containing my unregistered gun and he is a felon but had no knowledge of the gun being in the safe or the safe being in the car. The safe is currently in police custody and i have money in it as well. Are they legally allowed to take it being as he had no key to get in the safe, no way to take anything out or put anything in it? They are going off probable cause since they found a bullet and a holster in the car as well.
The search of the car was most likely what most will refer to as incident to arrest. There are many theories and very...
License driving abilities question
Ok I am an Indiana resident with an Indiana license. Almost 3 years ago I got a duo/ovi in Ohio. I've already done all requirements and probation and dealt with the license suspensions 6 month suspension from Ohio and 3 month from Indiana (my home state). My question is am I able to drive in Ohio?? Indiana never had any reinstatement fees and I've renewed my license and Indiana bmv said nothing showed on my record about any suspensions or restrictions. But the thing is the Ohio bmv I never paid the $475 reinstatement fee. So for me to drive in Ohio do I have to pay the fee? It's $475 and really don't have the money for it. I'm just confused on the whole situation. Since Indiana bmv said shows nothing on my record except the points for the ovi. really would like some kind of answer. Just all gets confusing when live in one state and ovi happened in another state.
If your Indiana license is valid, you can legally drive anywhere in the US, including Ohio. Your license never was...
I am on the program CTP- Community Transitions Program, they found a couple empty beer and wine bottles what will happen?
I just got released from DOC or prison and they put me on the CTP program which means they let me out of prison 2 and a half months early on house arrest until my release date which is October 20th, 2016. The situation is that they are allowed to random house searches for drug, weapons and or liquor. They did a random house search and found 5 empty beer bottles and a couple empty wine bottles which were not mine but I understand I am responsible for them. The officer said he was reporting it to my case manager and said he was going to breathalyze me. I blew Tripple zeros and passed. So he didn't arrest me. And now I have a meeting with my PO and with the board of my community corrections next week. I'm not sure what is going to happen or what they will look at. Since I've been out, I've obtained full time employment, I've never been late or missed an class or appointments they assigned me, I've paid off my house arrest payments and I've passed every drug test given to me. Does anyone have an idea what will happen? This is my first violation and last. What is the most likely action that's going to happen? What is the worst action that will happen?
Depends on the specifics of your case. You really need to speak with a local attorney for specific answers. Worst -...
Convicted of OVI in Ohio, live in Indiana. Is Ohio wrong in asking for reinstatement fee?
My boyfriend was convicted of an OVI in Ohio(we live in Indiana), he plead guilty and got a 6 month license suspension, among other things. A couple months later Ohio sent him a letter telling him to send in his driver's license, proof of insurance and a reinstatement fee of $475. I looked online and it says Ohio cannot take out of state licenses, it's up to the home state. Is Ohio mistaken in asking for this? Does he owe them a reinstatement fee since he doesn't have an Ohio driver's license? Indiana has not sent him anything asking for a reinstatement fee or even saying that his license is suspended. He went through a Driver Safety Program required by the Indiana BMV and that plus the OVI are on his driver record, but his driver record doesn't even say he has a suspension. I'm not sure what to do, he wants to call a lawyer, but I feel that's too drastic. If Ohio is mistaken should we just call the BMV they're telling him to send his license to and explain he's not a resident? And why would his driving record not have the driving suspension on it, does it mean he's not suspended in Indiana?
Seems like you've been sent a form letter. No, it doesn't apply to him.
Wondering if someone with an HTV (suspended for 10 yrs) can petition the court without having to wait 5 full years now in 2015?
Does a person who suffers a mandatory ten year driver's license suspension (separate from court) have to wait five years (without a driving offense) before petitioning the court for a probabtionary license for work? I heard the rule was repealed at the start of 2015 and want to verify. If this person is allowed to petition through court and a probabtionary license is issued, is it possible this person can drive children around in the vehicle if going to and from their school? They recieved an HTV due to 4 arrests for DUI's in the last 10 yrs. What the court may not know when this person is petitioning is that this person lost custody of their son due to them drinking and driving with a child in their vehicle.
Technically they may be eligible for Special Driving Pivileges, which is the new name for a probationary license. If...
I had a vop and never showed up for court I'm on probation in one county and.vop and warrant in another one was dui 0.08
I have a class a mis for purchase over 3 grams ephedrine then this dui then class c mis possion of drug look alike
The best advice I can give you is to hire a good criminal defense attorney and start taking responsibility for your actions.
If I have been stopped and blew .097 and the alcohol limit is .08... Should I plead not guilty to a DUI?
The officer said my car swerved a little and chalks it up to the alcohol content... I concede my car had run out of fuel and was lurching and that's the reason I swerved some at that time
You should plead not guilty to a DUI until you have hired a DUI attorney who can evaluate the details of your case. A...
