What do I need to do in this situation?
I got my 3rd DUI in Colorado 6 years ago. I have not had a car since then. I live in New York now and am not sure what I need to do in order to reinstate. I have heard if you can prove that you didn't have a car that you could " start" by filling out some sort of paperwork.
My son was pulled over by 4 police cars after he parked and was getting out of car with 2 friends. Police told him they saw him
do a drug deal with another vehicle which didn't happen, he had just come from driving around and McDonald's drive thru! He missed turn into friend's parking lot so did u-turn on side street (using turning signals) that ended up being a 3 point turn due to snow banks. When they did not get "confession" of a nonexistent drug deal, they said they pulled over for improper u-turn. They accused him of DWI (he passed all field sobriety checks, blowing 0 on breathalizer), searched him found 1 gram of marijuana and charged with DUAI drugs, possession, DWI too and the improper u-turn! Does he have a case to get the u-turn dropped and all other charges?
You should hire a good DWI attorney to represent him. It may be possible to get the charges reduced or dismissed if the...
Its confusing but here it goes. In October 2011 arrested for DWI. In February 2012 plead guilty to DUI. My insurance covered all damages do to brake failure. So I got all other tickets dropped and reduced to traffic infraction. Now in 2012 I attended and completed the required drink driver program. I'm a class A truck driver. At the time I lost my job and worked in a pizza place and couldn't afford the extra evaluation this woman suggested. So I waited the year for my cdl to become available I went to local DMV paid any and all fees and my license was reinstated. Went back to work driving and in 2014 the woman said I never completed her program Cuz of the evaluation. And now my license has been suspended . I've lost my job again. What should I do.
It sounds like you did not complete the further alcohol referral and/or treatment that your Drinking Driver Program...
What happens if there is no refusal hearing for a DWI?
I had 4 drinks over a 5 hour period and was in an accident and suffered a concussion. There was no sobriety test given at the scene. After several CT scans I incoherently refused a BAC and blood test. They never asked the court for a forced blood test and the hospital never took any blood even though I was diagnosed with head trauma. At the arraignment several hours later I was issued my court date for the DMV hearing. The court date was 24 days after the date I was charged. I showed up for my DMV hearing with the lawyer and we were the only ones there. When the judge was contacted he said he didn't have any paperwork for my refusal. It has since been 2 weeks and my lawyer contacted the DMV judge again. Still no paperwork. Can I get my license back or do I need to wait for the hearing?
DMV has to hold the hearing within 15 days of the arraignment or your license has to be temporarily re-instated pending...
Can I legally drive if the DMV has no record of my refusal and tickets and my DMV hearing has already passed?
This is a follow-up question from a previous one I posted yesterday? According to the NYSP my license is still valid and only shows my accident. My DMV hearing was scheduled on the ticket but only the lawyer and my self were there. The DMV judge said I was not on the schedule. According to the same judge I am also not on the schedule for next month as well. On the night I was arranged both the violation date and the ticket number were not filled out on my refusal ticket. That same night I refused I was in an accident with head trauma I was not given a sobriety test or BAC. Also no blood was court ordered or taken by the hospital. Is the ticket fightable without that information filled in? Any help once again is greatly appreciated. Thanks
Did the Judge suspend your license at arraignment? If yes, driving without an Order vacating the suspension is risky.
