If you have an attorney on your case, you should definitely discuss this with them. If not, you should consider hiring...
In 2000,I got a dui in GA, with a CA license,and now live in NC..
Had the ADETS assessment and took the 20 hour class, but now GA told me on the phone I need "Clinical treatment"?..Is this the same as the ADETS and ADETS says I need to get a driving record from GA since this is where the violation took place. GA says since my last licensing was in CA that I need a CA driving record, even though it didnt occur in CA., it occured in GA!..I thought the ADETS assessment and completion was all I needed but they list "Clinical treatment" as a separate requirement. Im so confused!
I would contact a GA DUI attorney. You can order your CA driving record by going to the CA DMV website.
Can I have a term of probation dropped while being in violation?
I am on probation for a dwi, I was recently incarcerated for nine months on a different charge. The different charge I was given ninety days, for which I got time served, but I have done six more months then I should have. My PO was told not to violate while I was incarcerated, so now I find myself in violation. Is there anyway I could have the six months go for my active sentence and be done with probation altogether? Any help would be great, I'm having trouble finding anything to help me. Thank you and have a great day.
Generally no. If you were incarcerated on another charge, and were not serving time on this charge, they will not go...
Pulled for speeding and resulted in DWI....
I had been at christmas party and knew that I had too much to drink, so I spent the night. Upon getting up I got an "emergency" call out to work (It was a sunday). I ate some breakfast before leaving and was headed to the house to get cleaned up and go to work. I was following a car in a 60 mph zone and when they braked, I went into the passing lane to avoid them. I then saw the officer that they braked for. I immediatly slowed down and got over into the right hand lane and was pulled for going 79 in a 60. The officer said he smelled alcohol and asked if I had been drinking. I was given a pocket breath tester, then brought to the station where I blew again. I blew, then breathalizer needed to recalibrate so I was then given a fst, then I blew a 12. Is there a chance to have this reduced?
I would save the evidence and the story you tell work against you. Hire counsel. Perhaps negotiations......
Can I pay the original fine that was offered to me instead o doing the community service?
I was charged with A DWI last year in May I believe. I had a lawyer and everything but I ended up loosing my case. I have paid all the lawyer fees and the money to get my license back ( which I had to switch for a limited license ) but Instead of just taking the offer to pay 200.00 to "skip" Community Service I opted to do it, Now things are so tight time wise that I just cannot do the community service Im always working or with my kids. is their a possibility that I can go to the courthouse and pay the original fine for community service or am I just locked in to do it now? I have to do 24 hours. thank you for looking and assisting me in advance! also I apologize for any typos.
That should not be a problem since either was a choice in the first place. Contact the court to get their suggested...
Do I have a chance ?
I have a previous dui in VA only from last year . Could have fought it but didn't have $$ for a lawyer. I got pulled for speeding when my cruise was set. Officer immediately breathed me while I was still in car. Same officer pulled me for speeding 2 weeks prior and breathed me same way and let me go. I have a stigmatism and glasses and he did follow the pen for the eye twitch while facing his high beam headlights and police lights were on. Blew .08 on road he said and .10 at station even tho 2 hours had went by since I had left where I was coming from. After he charged me he dropped me off at my car
See the answer I posted in your previous question.
Got a DWI and wasn't even pulled over. Need advice!
I went to a BBQ and I had 7 beers in a 5 hour period. I have bad GERD, but I was drinking anyway, because my friend came back on leave from the NAVY, so I wanted to hang out. I took him home and got lost and was very anxious. So, I took one of my xanx and felt drowsy. Soon after I fell asleep at the wheel and went into a ditch. Thank God I was in the middle of nowhere. I came to and felt really lethargic and called the police, because I wasn't sure if I had hit anybody. Police came I was standing next to my car. No road side sobriety test, just basically gave me the tube to blow in. It registered .15, which doesn't make since when my BAC should have been .03 or less. I have herd that bad GERD can overstate BAC results. Is this a good defense?
This can be used in your defense. Make sure to tell this to the attorney working on your case.
