What can I do to contest a DUI charge in Virginia?
I submitted to FSTs and roadside breath. Refused breath/blood at station. Transported to the hospital after having an anxiety attack. I am also in the military and facing several issues as well.
You can retain an attorney. It's futile trying to do anything on your own. If you knew the law you wouldn't have...
Legal Liability DUI - post separation
My wife's a drunk. She hasnt had a DUI yet, but drinks and drives all the time. I used to take her keys away and lock them in the safe on a regular basis while we were together. During the 6 years we were together I think she was hospitalized for falling down the stairs twice and for alcohol detox with DTs 3 times (Or something like that, I lost count). Now that we're getting separated and I've found a place to stay, I kept her keys because I feel that I would still be liable if I let her drive. Is that correct? Can I address this in a separation agreement or do we need to re-title the cars and re-do the loan first? What if she gets a rental car on her own credit card?
Are you talking about civil or criminal liability? If you are this concerned then I suggest that you get into a...
What are the ramififications of violating your interlock.
I am still picking up the pieces from my 2nd DUI. My probation ended with ASAP 2 weeks ago and my driving restrictions are off as well. I waited awhile to get the interlock so I am still serving that out till this Novemebr. I had a decent amount of drinks the night before and I woke up and tried to start my car. I blew in it twice and failed. I didn't try for the third time because it would lock me out for 24hrs. I have a good attorney but I am looking for a second opinion on the matter. This violation will get recorded to Asap here in Virginia. It is my first violation with them and I'm wondering what possible consequences will come from this from my negligence. I really don't want to lose my license again or go to jail. Can someone please help me!
If it's your first violation often times Cheaspeake Bay VASAP will require you to have six more months interlock...
What can I expect from an open container charge in Virginia?
I was stopped by the police for driving over the speed limit. The officer noticed leftover alcohol in the back seat from batch cocktails I had made for a going-away party that same night. He did not believe me to be intoxicated nor did he ask me to take a sobriety test. He did, however, allow me to pour out the contents of the bottles and drive home. He thanked me for my honesty and for cooperating yet I was told I needed to go to court for the open container charge. I have never had any alcohol/DUI related problems in the past so my question is: should I just show up to court, talk to the judge, hope the cop is in my corner, and hope for the best? Or is it more serious than that?
I'm waiting to take an Open Container charge to trial. Does "opened" container mean "open" or "previously opened?" I...
I have an interlock installed, why I am getting the camera installed?
I've had my interlock device installed in my car for almost 6 months with no violations or missed tests. I received a call from the interlock company that my calibration appt has been changed due to camera installation. Why after all this time am I getting it now? I received a letter from my asap office that my compliance period is over soon.
The law now requires cameras in interlock devices.
Will I serve my full 10 days in jail?
I was convicted of DWI and driving on a suspended. Before I was able to receive my restricted license I got another driving on a suspended. My lawyer was able to get me 30 days. 20 suspended. So 10 days. I wasn't arrested for the 2nd driving on a suspended. I am curious if I have the possibility of being released early so I can miss less work.
This is an inquiry that should be directed to your attorney. Unless there is a mandatory minimum as part of the...
If a cop doesn't give you a DUI at the scene or inform you of your BAC or results of your other tests, what should I do?
I was given a reckless driving and possession of alcohol ticket. I am 19 and my parents don't know that I was drinking while driving. I have been told my BAC will be brought up in court, but I wasn't given it. I was given other tests and wasn't told if I passed. I understand they tried to give me another chance by not charging me with a DUI, but can they still when I get to court. I have never had any prior charges with the law of any sort and have good grades and no accidents prior to this. I understand I deserve a punishment but would like to understand to what extent this could be. While the punishment does vary judge to judge, I was wondering if this will get taken off my record somehow since it is NOT a felony because they didn't charge me with a DUI.
Go ahead and tell your parents about this. They will help you hire a good lawyer. A conviction for this will stay on...
