Why would someone be aloud to have 3 pretrial conferences in a DUI case in KY involving drugs?
Our sons mother, whom might I add stays in trouble with the law, was arrested for driving under the influence in KY after wrecking her vehicle. She was arrested on drug use according to the citation. Her pretrial conference has been scheduled 3 times but we do not know details. She abuses prescription medications so we are wondering if maybe she is pleading not guilty and they are giving her time to come up with the scripts. I'm just curious how many times Greenville, KY will give her and if convicted what might happen because we are in a custody battle in TN and have a trial where she is facing up to 70 days jail time for contempt and we are fighting to gain primary custody of the child. We have an attorney here in tn but not sure what the rules are in KY as far as the DUI.
The number of pretrial conferences in a case vary based on a numerous factors. It may be that they are waiting of the...
Will the statute of limitations on a Dui in kentucky apply to my situation?
I have a jury trial for an aggravated DUI scheduled for the 5th of Feb. My lawyer quit yesterday. It will be a year March 3rd since I was charged. If I don't get this resolved by then will they have to drop the charges do to the statute of limitations?

Do the police have to observe u 20 mins before they give u a breathalyzer test or is just in effect at the jail.
When I got pulled over the officer had me do field sobriety tests and breathalyzer. I have acid reflux and it was acting up. He did not observe me for 20 mins. I don't think the jail did either but I can't prove that because their video was not working that night. The only thing the officer had on me is that breathalyzer he has already stated I wasn't speeding, I swerved once but did not leave my side of the road.
Yes--the person performing the breathalyzer (whether at the jail or your arresting officer)...must observe you for 20...
If convicted of 1st off. DUI in Ky, does the judge have option to waive drivers license suspension or is it mandatory?
In Kentucky, on a 1st offense DUI conviction , is drivers license suspension mandatory or does a judge have the option to waive suspension of license. I know that jail time & fine amount is discretionary, but not sure about license suspension of a convicted person.
The minimum required suspension is thirty days, but you could be eligible for an ignition interlock device that would...
Can my lawyer help with a federal violation of probation with a d.u.i?
I am on federal probation and just got a dui. This is the first time I violated. I have been doing good since i got out in February 2016. I have two prior dui's in '99 and '01. I did ten years prior to getting out .
You should probably ask your lawyer that question. If you were appointed an attorney through the CJA (i.e. federal...
What will happen when a monitoring service such as Kaps, says that I've failed to report for a drug screen?
Recently was informed that I was called to report for a drug screen, however there is no record of the call and every time I've been called for one there has been a message left and a call to a secondary number as to I work and can't have phone inside the facility. Never have missed a test as to I have no drug problem. I've been a a success story if the system has had one as I've been gainfully employed for two years and with only a mere month left for my probationary obligations, would be absolutely idiotic to blatantly ignore a screen without absolutely any reason to. Looking for advice and/or peace of mind please.
If you are not complying with Court orders you can go to jail. If it was a honest mistake they may not file a violation...
I got my first dui in Kentucky and I'm a resident of Illinois. Will my liscense be suspended immediately at court?
I went to the Evansville/Henderson area to visit friends last week and was pulled over and arrested for my first dui. No aggravating circumstances and I was cooperative. My largest concern is my liscense because I live in a rural area with no bus system to get to work, I have drill with the national guard on the weekends, and of course I have to drive out of state to get to and from court. Is there any chance ofna grave period before suspension that would atleast allow me to get home.
Kentucky does not do pretrial suspensions of your right to drive in Kentucky on non-refusal non-aggravated DUI cases....
