Hi I'm from sweden and I lived in USA for 7 months on a J-1 visa. While I was there something terrible happended to me that made me drive while I was drunk. After this I just wanted to go home, and the attorney told me I could, the only problem was that it would be hard for me to get into USA again. So I never showed up at the court date since he said it was okay. I didn't get any problem in Sweden and I still have my driving licence and I have been traviling to italy once. Now I am going to Australia because of work and I am wondering if this is gonna show up in Australia when they scan my passport or something? I am really worried.. Thank you.

The dui was dropped to 2nd dwi, it became a misdemeanor, so I'm doing half the time. After a month in jail I was released on house arrest. while I was in jail a few of the other inmates wrote letters to the judge and had their time reduced. I want to see if I write a letter directly to the judge what are the chances that he'll read it?
You're on house arrest now and would like the judge to reconsider your sentence? Careful what you wish for--the judge...
I recently resolved my VA DWI case with a plea to civil refusal. I understand this is a favorable outcome and am appreciative of my attorney's efforts. However, I couldn't get a clear answer as to what the collateral effects of a civil refusal are likely to be. Should I expect this to be viewed as equivalent to a DWI for things like professional licensing, international travel, auto/life insurance, car rental, etc.?
You cannot get a clear answer because you are asking a lot of questions. For any non-governmental purpose on your list...
