Can a person with a misdemeanor dui with a probation violation be held for federal violation
My son was put on a no report federal probation. He also got a dui that was a misdemeanor, he had a warrant for probation violation and arrested. Now the federal probation has a hold on him saying he violated federal probation by not reporting
Yes a person can absolutely be held on a federal probation violation.
I have a DUI in CA.
Can i obtain a driver license in GA.
Not licensed in either state, but in general, no, not until you have CA reinstate your license in CA. CA and GA are...
What can i do to fight a wrongful DUI? Littering to a DUI?
My girlfriend was pulled over for littering(cigarette), told police she had 2 beers earlier (few hours prior) passed field sobr. Test but refused breathalyzer thinking it could be false reading so they didn’t do chemical test, definitely wasn’t drunk, found a grinder in her car with potentially a small crumb size of marijuana maybe, if that big. DUI? is there something to why she was continually being tested. No record, never even smelled of alcohol or police didn’t say. Says she passed an initial breathalyzer but refused state so immediately DUI and off to jail. After passing field sobriety tests too. How can we fight the DUI? She definitely wasn’t over the limit.
You and she absolutely can't fight this without an attorney. Hopefully, she sees how stupid she was for littering....
Statues Of Limitation for a DUI?
I was charged last year January for a misdemeanor DUI I went to court and my lawyer took the case and I am just waiting to see what’s next my lawyer is waiting for evidence does my case met the requirements for the statues of limitations
Timing sounds about right for Richmond County and no it doesn't sound like you case will meet those requirements.
How Can I get my DUI charge dropped?
I was wondering if there’s a way I can get these dui charges I just received dropped. I didn’t take the implied consent because the officer said it in a way I couldn’t understand and when I asked him can you tell me what happens if I don’t take it he said he can’t say that but can only read the card again. I declined regrettably. I believe I passed the physical test to test if you are intoxicated but failed the Breathlizer test by getting 0.023 instead of 0.02 due to me only being 19. I was pulled over for speeding.
A good dui lawyer may be able to help get the charges dropped or reduced. There are several ways this can be done...
Georgia DUI Suspended License?
Hello, I just have a question regarding my GA Driver's License, I was arrested and charged with DUI in 2009, and due to my alcoholism and my stupidity and people telling me I was going to face 2 years in Jail, I basically got spooked and left the state (GA) I never went to court even once for my DUI after I bonded out. It's been about 8 years now. I know I didn't get away scott free, like I stated I was young and dumb at the time. My question is basically what do I have to do to get my License back? Thanks so much
You need to hire an attorney to help you through this situation. First you will need to deal with the warrant for...
Will my public drunkenness turn into DUI?
I went to court for a DUI and had been drinking the night before. I still smelled apparently but I wasn't acting belligerent in any way. I agreed to a breathalyzer and didn't expect to have much in my system, but it was enough that the officer made an arrest. Later I found I was charged with public drunkenness, but the officer said I was lucky to not get charged with DUI as they had no video evidence of me driving. Is it possible the prosecutor still upgrades this to a DUI? Besides that, since I wasn't belligerent, can I get the public drunkenness dropped? I don't believe I was in an altered state, I just blew too high. Since that incident, I have lived completely sober as well. I learned my lesson.
It's possible but unlikely that this gets upgraded to DUI. You dodged a bullet if you drove to court, as they usually...
