If I am arrested for DUI in Nebraska, does the officer have to read me my rights?
After I made bond, the arresting officer is now harassing my 16 year old sister to try and get her to say that I was buying alcohol for her. What can I do about this?
No you don't need to have your rights read to you. Miranda rights only come into play when the police are questioning...

Are DMV records A TRUE AND CORRECT ABSTRACT OF THE OPERATING RECORD?
lived in NE. for many years, not so good driving record many of those years. Last was 1996, paid all fines, sr22, reinstatement fee, received letter of clearance, license was reinstated 2/2003 in NE. Moved to CO and received 1 dui in 2006, did 90 days jail, lost license 2 years, paid fine, reinstatement fee, sr22 (still on i believe) reinstated 2008, been clean & sober since 2006. Now go to renew CO. license (2013) and find NE has hold on license, but have not had as much as a parking ticket, NE or CO. Will letter of clearance NE gave in 2003 be enough to give to DMV? Also have NE. DMV records up until 2003 shouldn't these be valid? Do not understand. Thank you
Contact Nebraska DMV and find out what the hold is. Like most lawyers we offer a free initial consultation to talk...
I was pulled over driving an unregistered vehicle, and received my first offense DUI. What am I looking at?
I used the plates from my other vehicle and put them on my new one. The new vehicle expired 8 months prior and I never had it registered
The registation of the vehicle is not the main issue here. It is the DUI. Are you an alcoholic? When you drink do...
What are the consequences we should expect from this DUI first offense?
My husband received a (first offense) DUI recently. He was pulled over for driving with his lights off, was asked to take a test and was just above the legal limit. Will the courts be any softer on him because of the amount or does it even matter? What should we expect? Jail time? Fines?
7-60 days jail, $500 fine, 6 months loss of license. If the test was above .15% increase of 1 year loss of license and...
What are my chances of getting careless driving instead of DUI.
I was pulled over after swerving late at night after drinking. Officer did have cause to pull me over. I did field sobriety test and failed, I blew a .081. I don't know the blood results. On my ticket the officer wrote DUI then crossed it out and wrote careless driving next to it. When I bailed out of jail I signed a paper that said I'll appear to court for DUI. I plan on hiring a lawyer. I have no prior DUI's. What are my chances of getting just careless driving?
Well I'm glad to hear you plan on hiring a lawyer as that will increase your chances of getting a careless. Best of luck.
