How can I get my Missouri driver's license reinstated as a result of a very old suspension if I currently live in Illinois?
I got a DUI in Missouri in 2005. I lost my license. I don't have any tickets or outstanding legal issues, but the license is still suspended in MO. I now live in IL and can't get my license here until it's reinstated in MO. MO requires 50 hours of SATOP for my level of offense, but I have no way to get to MO to do those classes there. I can't get any straight answers about the possibility of an equivalent program here in IL. Do I have any other option to get reinstated?
How about I save you a lot of time and money? Unless you are on a 5 or 10 year denial, you shouldn't have to do SATOP....
Can you be charged with a DUI if you were not driving?
I was locked outside of my vehicle, which was out of gas. I was trying to get in the back window when a police officer pulled up. He ordered me to back away from my vehicle and I explained that my keys were locked inside. He popped open my door, removed my keys that were in the passenger seat and ordered me to perform some sobriety tests. I obeyed since he told me my license would be automatically revoked for 1 year if refused. I did 2 or 3 tests before I had to do the one where I stand on one foot. I even told him I had poor balance regardless, I was naturally clumsy, having a bit of humor but truth. I failed that test and he immediately wrote me a ticket and handcuffed me and took me to jail for a 12 hour detox. He never made a traffic stop, can he legally charge me with a DUI?
The question isn't can you be charged, it is what are the chances of the case surviving a motion to dismiss, directed...
Can I be charged with a DUI for sleeping in my truck?
I was homeless for a while and had fell asleep in my vehicle. It was freezing outside so the vehicle was running. The police came and woke me up, and had me do field sobriety tests.
