Do I have any defense to have the first DUI dropped off my record due to the fact I completed everything in October?
I've was charged with my second DUI on December 5th, but I went through the deferral program for the first DUI, so this is a first offense DUI. I blew a .07 and I am 20 years of age. I have records that i finished all of my classes and reports on October 12th of 2014, but the courts didn't receive the work until January 5th. The prosecutor has offered me the choice of dropping the first one and receiving the second one on my record or going to trial and leaving the first one on my record.
The hidden, wholly unfair and misleading aspect of West Virginia's deferral program -which is the exact same as most...

DUI erroneously reported from another state, do we let it go, fight it or try for interlock
My son is a WV resident, he was pulled over in Ohio they requested a urine sample. After 3 separate court dates for continuance (because the urine results were not back yet) my son finally pled no contest per his public defenders advise. In Ohio, if your urine is positive for more than 10 nano grams of marijuana it is considered OVI regardless of if he was impaired at the time. He knew it would be positive, even though his actual results were not back yet. Yesterday we received notice from WV that his license are suspended for 90 days because of a DUI in Ohio of less than .15. I spoke with WV DMV today they said that Ohio reported it as an alcohol DUI even though there was no alcohol it was marijuana. Do we accept the alcohol charge and try for the interlock program which will grant him driving privileges, or do we fight this since it is not true that it was alcohol related. My problem with fighting it for a drug related then there are no driving privileges granted until the 90 days suspension is fulfilled. Is there a possibility we could get the whole suspension "thrown out" for WV being that it was erroneously reported as alcohol when in fact there was no alcohol involved?
