Is a dui without a license a felony if it happened 18 years ago?
I got a dui without a license around 18 yrs ago and was wondering if it was a felony and if they could charge me with what the laws are now or if they have to charge me what they were then?
The only way to determine whether you have been convicted of a felony is to review your court record. You can find...
I got my restricted driving permit paperwork in the mail but do not own a car at the moment.
Do I need to have a car in my name before I send in the paperwork for my restricted driving permit? If so and I do not get a vehicle in my name before the deadline of the paperwork do I have to go through all the classes and formal hearing again?
No you just need to designate a car on which to install it. You have 60 days to comply with RDP requirements but in...
Out of state speeding and DWI (alcohol) charges for CDL holder .. what charges would not be reported if I plea them down?
I am an Illinois driver and I was recently arrested for DWI and speeding more than 15 mph over the speed limit in my personal vehicle. Due to Missouri law their suspension will not go into effect until the 15th day after the violation and if I file for a hearing that suspension will not go into effect until the hearing has been decided. I had lumbar fusion (spine) surgery 3 weeks before the arrest and an expert witness believes he can get the results of 2 of the 3 field sobriety tests thrown out due to that. If my lawyer picks the report apart and is able to discount the probable cause for the arrest the suspension from the Missouri DOR will not happen. However, I still have to go to court over the DUI and speeding but without probable cause the prosecutor should be fairly lenient (more)

Do I have to admit to a prior DUI?
I received a DUI in 1999. The judge gave me supervision for two years and told me that it wouldn't appear on my driving record. I received a second DUI and was convicted. Do I have to admit to the first, since it does not appear on my driving record? I have checked and it's not on the court copy. This would change my classification on my alcohol evaluation.
Yes. Or else you could open yourself up to further prosecution.
What does it mean when a DUI charge is (dismiss/terminated super) . Is it counted as a DUI still ?
Back in 1991 had a DUI that was dismissed now i'm fighting a new DUI charge since the one was dismissed can the new one be considered my 2nd ?
Great question... your "first offender" status is used up if ANY of the following occurs: 01. You suffer a statutory...
How does dui probation in Dupage county work?
Last month I was sentenced to 24 months of probation for my second dui. The judge had told me that I will be randomly tested for alcohol via ETG tests twice a month. My question is will the probation department also test me for drugs (Marijuana) even though the court order only mentions that i will be tested for alcohol?
Yes... it's very likely that you'll be tested for alcohol, marijuana and numerous other drugs while in probation. Your...
Can I be charged for a dui if I was arrested for a different offense?

YES! ABSOLUTELY! Your description of the events is somewhat scant but it is possible to be "charged" with DUI after the...
