What are the consequences for getting a speeding ticket while on probation for a DUI when you are not supposed to be driving?
The DUI classes are one week away from completion. All monies are paid. Got a speeding ticket for 61 in a 55 and shouldn't be driving due to probation restrictions. Clearly a violation of probation. What will happen now?
You are on Level I probation. Your PO will likely be notified of the ticket. I usually suggest to clients that they...
Do I need a DUI lawyer for first offense, out of state?
I had not had a drink for about 3 hours when I started driving. A man stopped me at a toll both, said I drifted lanes and was drunk, took my keys and threatened to punch me. He called the police, I passed the field sobriety test. The police said I passed but thought I might be on the edge of legal intoxication. They said they would like me to take a breath test. I told them I didn't want to since I passed the field tests, but said if I didn't they'd make me take a blood test at the station. So I did and blew .13. Said they wanted to take me to the station for the blood test, and once there, I said I didn't want to take any more tests. My court date was transferred and set for July 29. This is a first offense. I'm only in Delaware for the summer and live in Georgia.

2nd DUI - Jail term?
I read that is a mandatory 60 days but this guys court appointed attorney says he should be 7 - 10 days because the jails are over crowded? Is that true? He was like .26 with the test.

I recieved a DUI in DE back in 2000 and went to 1stoffender program & never completed it. How is the easiest way to get them.
I went to the first offenders program 2 times and never completed it. I was wondering if there is anyway since it has been so many years ago if there are any easier ways because I need my license with three kids & not enough money to do the program without a way to get to work to get my license back. Please help I dont drink at all this was actually before I turned 21 and before I had any children and my oldest is almost 13 now.
If you never completed the program, chances are that there is a capias out for you for a violation of your probation (...
Wife was glanced by a drunk driver, which caused a larger accident
She was hit on the back left side of her car (drunk had gotten into a turn lane, then decided she didn't want to turn, so tried pulling back into traffic) which caused my wife to careen out of control and into oncoming traffic. Thankfully, the accident wasn't as bad as it could have been, but the car is totalled. The driver and passenger were both legally drunk, driver arrested and taken away. The car is in the tow yard now, and both it and driver are from out of state. Not sure what insurance will cover, but another car hit my wife's when she crossed into oncoming traffic, so we are without a car and may have to pay damages to that driver and for a fence that was damaged. My wife was cited for inattentive driving, but I got photos today of both her car and the drunk's car, as well as the
As well as the...what? You did not finish your thought. Was your wife cited for inattentive driving in this same...
