Will I go to jail?
I got my first DUI in April. No criminal record before then. I got 90 days of jail time, all suspended on the basis of completing the ASAP program and good behavior for a year. But I recently got into a fight and am now dealing with an assault case. I'm just wondering if I'll go to jail, and if so, for how long
As you said, the 90 day sentence you were given was suspended on a couple conditions, one of which was to be of good...
What step is next after a judge and DCSE of VA release the suspension of my drivers license through the DMV.
VA judge and DCSE of VA agreed to release the suspension of my drivers license so I could be able to work. What is the time frame usually to complete the remaining process/steps before the DMV will reissue my license back. What kind of financial cost am I looking at also in regards of the DMV cost to have my license reinstated.
Generally speaking, if the Judge and DCSE have released you, then you just need to go to DMV and pay the reinstatement...

DUI - Was this probable cause?
My husband was pulled over for going 37 in a 55. The speed limit had just changed - half a mile. He had been in his car with the license and registration for a good minute when the lights started bothering my husband, he opened his door and asked if the officer could possibly turn off his lights. He then looked at his eyes and gave him a breathalyzer, which he blew a 0.18. This is the first time my husband has ever been in any trouble. The officer never read him his rights, which I understand isn't always necessary. But he also never told him he had the right to an attorney, or anything. My question is this - was this indeed probable cause to pull us over? I felt that half a mile after the speed limit increase isn't much time to accelerate, and he was going 37, which obviously means that he was accelerating. The officer may have even turned his lights on before the speed limit change. Also, does the fact that my husband has severe acid reflux (which can cause a higher bac) help us any?
The officer does not need probable cause, merely reasonable suspicion. Driving slowly can be grounds for a traffic...
DUI - is there any chance of a charge reduction?
My husband has a clean record. We were pulled over for driving 37 in 55, just after the speed limit change. The officer may have even turned on his lights before the change. After taking the lincense and registration, he stayed at his car for a good while. My husband began to feel very ill and opened his door to ask if the officer could possibly turn off his lights. He then looked at his eyes before giving him a breathalyzer, he blew a 0.18. It is very crucial to his career that he is not convicted. We are willing to pay for the best lawyer. I has a few questions. My husband has severe acid reflux, which can alter breathalyzer test, and he also had a fever. He was not acting drunk - not staggering, slurring, or anything. The only field test performed was the officer looking into his eyes. Is there any chance of getting the accuracy of the BAC test challenged? There was no blood test performed. Was pulling us over that soon after the speed limit change even probable cause? We are making appointments this week, we just need some peace of mind that it is not entirely hopeless. Thank you
The Fourth Amendment requires that the police have "reasonable articulable suspicion" before making a traffic stop. If...
How can I obtain a California License with a DUI from Virginia?
Hello. I was convicted of a DUI January, 28th 2016 in Virginia. I completed the mandatory ASAP classes and paid all court fines. I sold my vehicle after I was convicted so I never held a restricted license or had an interlock blower in a car. It's been well over a year but I want to obtain my License. Will I be able to get. Virginia license if I buy a vehicle, get the FR44, without have a interlock placed on my vehicle since it's been over a year? Or if I move to California, as I plan to in a month or 2, will I have to get it over there as well? I am asking because if I have to get an interlock placed on my car in Virginia, I won't be able to schedule follow ups to the interlock location once a month.
You say you sold your vehicle so "never held a restricted license...", which is inaccurate. Convicted of DUI means...
DUI - are DC and Va statutes "substantially similar"?
Had a first dui in 2009 and going to court for one soon, and I found this article - http://www.silislaw.com/blog/virginia-judge-rules-dui-statutes-in-dc-and-virginia-are-not-substantially. Would this be a good way to have this Va dui charged as a first instead of second? Mine and this one seem very similar.
It's was a nice argument while it lasted, but the key to the article was the words "at least in 2009". You see, DC...
