Probation Violation after 2nd DUI, should I get a lawyer? Can I talk to PO before hearing? Will I need to plead right away?
I recently got a probation violation, on probation for a 2nd DUI. The charges are failure to report (monthly by mail), failure to pay probation fees, and failure to complete classes. I have been scheduled to start class 1 in June (PO was aware), and the aftercare classes in July (PO was not aware). My failure to report was due to being in school full time, as well as not having enough money to pay the fees on time. I will soon be working full time as school has ended. It is my first official violation, but I was late once before with a warning. What are the chances my probation will be revoked and jail reinstated (90 dday ss)? Do I need a lawyer? Will I be able to sort it out with my PO first? Can I ask for a monetary extension during the hearing? HELP!!
You should hire an attorney immediately! You could be detained (placed in custody) pending a final probation violation...
Will an OUI that was Continued Without a Finding of guilty show up on a FBI Criminal Background even after probation is finished
First offense OUI was pled out as a CWOF. My probation is complete, but certain jobs that I will be applying for require me to provide an FBI Criminal Background check. Now that the probation is over will this still show up on my background?
Yes. The FBI background check will show the dismissal. Even if you seal the record, the FBI will still have access.
Will my fiancé lose his license or go to jail?
Hi, my fiancé got a CWOF on a possession of class a with intent to distribute, and also a suspended sentence of 2 years. The other condition is that he will lose his license If the CWOF is violated. The judge gave him a break even though he had a bad record because we had a baby and he's working now and doing great going on 2 years now. Him and my dad got into an argument and he threw a bottle and broke my fathers front window and left he did not get arrested but summoned to court next week and was criminally charged with vandalism. So it's not civil. Will he still lose his license and possibly face jail time? I also forgot to mention that he is on unsupervised probation for the last year and has had no violations or hiccups. I am very upset so any advice is appreciated, Thank you!
If he is charged with a new offense, the judge can sentence your fiancé to two years and convert the CWOF into a guilty....
I was convicted of 2 dui's in MA within 5 months. My first BAC was .08 and my second BAC was .06.
I was at our vacation house at cape cod per order of the judge in my divorce case in NH. I have completed all requirements imposed by MA including fines, education classes, treatment classes, two week inpatient treatment program, and random Breathalyzer drug testing. I was put on probation for two years and I have 7 months left. Recently, my divorce became final and I was awarded a house in NH. NH accepted the transfer of my probation from MA to NH. Could NH impose additional penalties above and beyond the penalties I fully completed in MA? In particular, could they impose a jail sentence or an additional year of probation? Will I continue alcohol screening with the Breathalyzer or might they change it to a urine test?
A transfer of probation to NH means that NH is going to monitor your compliance with the existing terms and conditions...
I was convicted of 2 DUI's at our vacation home in MA and I need to know if I can transfer to my residence in NH near family.
I went in front of a judge and he said I would have to transfer the probation to NH even though there is 7 1/2 months left on my 2 year probation. My probation officer has approved the transfer and is trying hard to push it through. Is there a chance the transfer will be rejected? I am disabled and will be homeless if I have to remain at the Cape. I was awarded a house in NH and my probation officer said it would be approved in about a month. Now, all of the sudden, she is unsure it will go through. HELP
Misdemeanor probation is not usually transferred. But felony probation can be. Your probation officer cannot predict...
Can I get my license after my 45 day suspension if I am enrolled in the 24D program or do I have to complete the program first?
I have a CWOF on a 1st time OUI (I did take the breath test). I received a 45 day license suspension and have enrolled and started my 24D classes. My license is suspended until 9/22/14 but my 24D classes will not be completed until December. Will I be able to get my actual license(not a hardship) after 9/22/14 or do I have to wait until all 16 weeks of classes are completed? I am aware I can apply for a hardship license now, but before I do that I want to know when I can get my full/real license back? I am in my 2nd week of 24D classes and have paid for everything in full, court, probation, classes.
Assuming there are no other suspensions affecting your license, you are eligible to have your license reinstated after...
