I'm am 21, and this dui is my first offence. I only have had one speeding ticket in the past five years, and I'm a very safe driver. I was heading home from a friends house after I had between two and three drinks. I was in an accident, because I thought I saw something move outside to the right of my car, when I looked back I was going threw a stop sign slamming on my brakes. I ended up in a ditch arcoss the road. I had two other passengers in the car with me, but none of us were hurt. I had waited at my friends house for almost two hours before I drove and I felt fine. I blew a 0.81, and spent the night in jail. I was very respectful to all the officers and did everything I was told. I have contacted an attorney, as of today one day after I got out of jail. Is it possible I have a chance
I do not practice in VA, but the policy on reduction of DWI to a lesser charge generally varies from state to state and...
Question is: my DUI 1 was on Sept 1 2009...I recvd a suspended 90 days and got restricted dl. I got another DUI in Nov of same year on my restricted DL. Long story....went to court and was sentanced to 6mo with all but 20 suspended...did my 20....now...after already serving for the 2nd one...I get a summons to show cause why i should not serve the original 90 for violating the 1st one in Sept...Im confused...when I went in front of the Judge for the 2nd he knew it was the 2nd...so why all of a sudden come after me for violating the 1st? Im trying to get my life together..no money for lawyer. Court is Tomm at 8am...what do I expect? Will the Judge give me time to get a court lawyer or will he just throw me in there tomm right away? This all just seems so unfair.
You're confusing issues. When you were sentenced on your 1st DUI and given a 90 day jail sentence, the Court suspended...
I am a Massachusetts resident, and received a DUI in Virginia. I was ordered to 5 days in prison (in VA), ASAP, fines, and to install an Ignition Interlock Device for 6 months in my vehicle. I've done the prison time, paid the fines, and am starting ASAP. However, I do not own a vehicle, and never drive. I live in Boston and take public transportation everywhere. The DUI was on a rental car. My ASAP officer told the Virginia ASAP office this, and they said I had to do it anyways, even if it's a friend's car (which I'll never drive). This seems outrageous, especially considering Massachusetts doesn't make first time offenders install a IID. What can happen if I don't comply with this provision?
Your privilege to drive in Virginia will never be restored. Did you request restricted privileges? If not, you can...
I was pulled over on the highway for "failure to maintain single lane". Did the FST and PBT. Officer said I did fine on the cognitive portion (abcs backwards, date/time etc) of FST but didn't pass the dexterity portion (did twelve steps instead of nine). Blew a .11 on the PBT. I got to the station for the official breath test and got a "deficient sample" reading. I conducted the breath test FOUR times, and complied with the officers instructions. Subsequently, I was charged with Refusal of Test as well
DUI/DWI's are very fact specific and are very complex. So, don't use this board to discuss the facts, instead use Avvo...
the officer said i blew a 0.27 i wasnt that drunk i had two drinks about 30 min before i was pulled over and i never took another breath test at 0.27 i would think i would be passed out
You are right. You would not blow a .27 with 2 drinks. Your lawyer should inspect the maintenance logs for the...
I failed an interlock test once during my 6 month restricted license and interlock period. I did not retest until that evening because I had to get to work with a neighbor. I realize I should have retested and would have probably passed very quickly. I have a camera installed too. I have no other violations and in 2 weeks was set to regain my full license. I notified my PO right away and even took a day off work to speak with him personally before the Interlock service was downloaded. I thought because I was at the end of my probation period my probation and if I was honest, my counselor would give me a break but he went really hard on me and I shouldn't have admitted to drinking the night before for my Birthday. I have not drank any alcohol this year except on my Birthday. Any Advice?
Talk to the lawyer you had on the conviction. You could get all your suspended time and will almost certainly not get...
I was stopped and arrested for DWI and Refusal in Virginia(Both 1st Offenses). I also received a PBJ judgment from Maryland for DUI(1st Offense) at the beginning of this year. What types of penalties could I face from these two charges and the possible probation violation charge? My residence state is in Maryland.
Virginia is not Maryland. If you went it alone in MD and think you may be able to do that here, you are in for a bad...
