Victim of an Overzealous Officer but DUI Reduced: What will typically show on a background inquiry by a potential employer?
Hi, I live in Alabama, and last year I was cited for speeding 95 (70) and DUI in Georgia. My case ended with a plea of nolo conten. to reckless with 1y none reporting probation, fine, and an alcho. evaluation. Is this typical? The prosecutor requested to go on record stating the State did not see sufficient evidence to prove intoxication or overly reckless driving behavior after the fact of course, as by video I passed non-standard FSTs (excluding breath) and no state BAC tests were conducted. This made me think I was sorta pigeonholed to plea. I am having trouble finding work and wonder if the reduced charge/ probation may be the culprit. I have an offer on the table to work at a local state college but its pending a BG check. Will my circumstance disqualify me for this opportunity?
Every job sets its own requirements. I do not think we can answer this question without knowing what the qualifications are.
Arrested for DUI 2 years ago. The Judge gave administrative prosecution I think it was called. Paid fines and school, etc. He told me that after one year with no more trouble the case would be nolle prossed. I came back to city hall one year later and was given a statement which stated: Status: Case Closed- NOL PROS which was dated on year from the court date. I went to the Dept of Public Safety in Montgomery to get if removed (the suspension) from my record. I had read SECT 32-5A304 (c) second sentence. My understanding was if a case is nolle prossed , dismissed or acquitted the administrative suspension should be removed from my driving record. The State trooper in that office told me that I could not get it removed. Were they right? If not , what can I do.

I recently moved from Alabama to Georgia but haven't gotten my Georgia driver's license. I was arrested for DUI in Georgia with my Alabama license. I plead guilty to the DUI charge and my Alabama license was taken, as Georgia has a minimum revocation of 120 days. I want to apply for a "hardship license", or limited driving privileges, in Georgia. DDS says that they can grant me one as long as my Alabama privileges are not suspended as well. Upon getting this information, neither Georgia nor Alabama had record of my conviction, so I'm just trying to make preparations. Would my driving privileges in Alabama be suspended as well? Will there be additional fines in the state of Alabama? If so, do I find that out from Alabama DMV or another source?

I was arrested DUI and convicted and spend 30 days in jail. It was 6 years ago. now I need to apply for my GC renewal. Do they deport me for this arrest and 30 days jail?

You do not have to have a breathalyzer test to be arrested for DUI in Alabama. .08 creates a rebuttable presumption of...
I refused a breathalyzer, and was charged with a DUI in AL. I entered a plea that will keep it off my criminal record, but there will be an "administrative action" on my MVR record forever. I am set to be employed in TN, and must have a clean driving record to obtain my job. I went to apply in TN and it asks if my drivers license has ever been suspended of revoked for any reason. Technically, yes, I was suspended for a period of time, but I have satisfied my requirements, and I do not want this on my MVR in TN as well. Do I have to answer yes, and can they figure out I was suspended? Do I explain it was dismissed, but Public Safety is separate?
I would only suggest that the truth will usually come out eventually. You may want to be up-front now. Odds are your...
How can you be convicted of DUI if the officer never established probable cause for arresting you to begin with?
Speeding is not a indicator of DUI/DWI.
Not if a motion to suppress is timely and properly presented.
