I have no prior DUI and was pulled over for speeding and charged with DUI with a bac of 0.154. I am curious of what to expect at court. I am nervous and have no knowledge of duos and the process. I know I have my 30 day temporary license, and was wondering how I can get a permit to drive for work due to my job requiring driving. Also anybody know how strict Brantley county is or judge crews is? Thank you
First you should hire an experienced DUI attorney. Do not do this alone. If you fail to get any responses you can...
I was dropped off by a designted driver I can't find the taxy company that drooped me off,But I have witness that heard and saw i was dropped off !
You can listen to your lawyer's advice.
I was approached by a cop while sitting in my car(keys out of ignition safely parked on a side street) , the police office said he smelled a strong odor of alcohol and asked me to perform roadside test's but I refused and instead was arrested and had my blood drawn. I went to my arraignment (didn't plea and charges not filed) and was told I would receive a letter if charges are filed by the da...I have checked with the county clerk and still no filed charges or loss of license(no dmv hearing) and i'm just wondering if it's normal to wait this long for formal charges? my attorney told me to just wait and i'm doing just that. Also no blood test results yet.
No it is not normal to wait this long for a DUI Accusation to be filed. The DA/Solicitor has 2 years to file an...
I have a DUI in another state in 2005. I am facing a current DUI in GA and they are trying to make it 2 in 10yrs instead of 1st in 10yrs. Doesn't Georgia law count second in 10 years for anything after 2008 or is it prior arrests also?
It will be your 2nd in 10 years if you plea or get convicted. No getting around this. You most likely need to speak...
I received a Second DUI in GA because it was in a 10 year period. I want to seal the 1st DUI in NV because they allow that within a 5yr period. to make sure that doesn’t affect the outcome of the most recent received in the state of GA.
My guess is that you will not be able to seal the DUI in NY, now that you have a pending charge elsewhere. I'd suggest...
I have 2 DUIs and required having an interlock device installed into my car. Had it for 3 months now with no issues. Early Saturday morning, I gargled mouthwash as I was getting ready to leave for Athens to get some work done and make it to community service (I reside now in Kennesaw). I waited a few minutes before trying to start the car. It failed me, so I freaked out, shut off the car and went back inside. I tried again 4 hours later, and it failed me for a 2nd time. Again I shut it off, tried calling the service provider to see what can be done. Still haven't gotten a response. I passed the 3rd attempt 3 hours later after replacing the mouthpiece. No issues with the retests. My next service date is coming up June 20th, and I am extremely worried about the 2 fails. What next?
Realizing this is mere speculation, contact the Lawyer that represented you on the DUI's, possible violation of...
Isn't it true that if I hire a lawyer ,the lawyer will negotiate and get me into the DUI program and doing community service. But I can do this myself. I don't need a lawyer to get into a DUI program especially for my first time DUI. IF I hire a lawyer I just end up paying a big lawyer's fee.
There is no "DUI program" on a first DUI in Gwinnett, or any other Georgia County for that matter. If you want really...
