Will I get drug tested at my first court date?
I'm 18 and I got a DUI.
No. File for youthful offender and talk to an attorney.
Do I need a lawyer for DHR? Confidentiality question...
My son got into trouble with drugs & DHR got involved. They put a safety plan in place & we are jumping thru their hoops to get him back. They have repeatedly broken protocol with many things & I'm thinking I should get a lawyer. My boyfriend & I are drug testing for them. The tests were negative but they gave me the wrong results in front of my son's probation officer only to let me know later they were wrong & that I was in fact clean. Not only that, but they gave my boyfriend's results to all of us without him present. He was clean as well, but I'm wondering if they broke confidentiality rules by discussing his results without him there. This was our second test. For the first one, they called us separately to tell us the results. She wouldn't tell me his that time. It's almost as if she told the wrong results on purpose to make me look bad. I was simply told a week later that she was wrong, that didn't help the embarrassment I felt when she told the wrong results in front of everyone previously. Now they want us to enroll in drug treatment as well, even though we were clean. Should I get a lawyer before doing more that may look as if we are guilty when we clearly are not?
You should definitely get a lawyer to help navigate through the DHR system.
I was arrested for a DUI, do I need to renew my driver's licence in state or should I keep my out of state one?
My DL is set to expire at the end of this month and I need to get it renewed while my DUI case continues. I have an out of state licence *not* a domestic one. Should I get a domestic DL or would it be advantageous to renew out of state again (where I'm originally from)? The reason why I ask, is that when I was arrested for my DUI, they took my licence but then gave it back to me when I made bail, it was never suspended, and I suspect the reason why was because it was not a domestic DL. I could be incorrect in this line of thinking, however.

I was arrested but *not* convicted (yet) for a DUI. Is there anywhere I would be able to rent a car?
I'm going on a business trip in a week and a half and I am expected to rent a car when I get there. However, I was arrested a few months back for a DUI. I have not been convicted (yet and hopefully never), but I'm sure this got on my driving record. Is there anywhere that I can rent a car? Do any of the companies not run a DMV report? I don't want to get to the counter and have my application rejected in front of co-workers. My company doesn't know of my situation and I need to keep it that way.
Car rental companies do not generally run DMV reports or investigate driving records. They check for a valid driver's...
Is drinking alcohol while on probation considered a technical violation?
My PO is aware that I consumed alcohol while on probation. Is this considered a technical violation of my probation or a more serious violation?
It depends. Do you have a probation condition that prohibits the consumption of alcohol? A violation is a violation....
Does a Dui from ten years ago still show up in a different state.
I got two duis over 10 years ago in Juneau alaska. I haven't had a driving offense since I have never had a drivers license just a state id. So my question is will my dui from Alaska show up in alabama after all this time?
Yes. Those prices have a very good possibility of showing up.
DUI Youthful Offender??
I am 19 in Alabama, and got a DUI in May. I plead not guilty at my arraignment, and have decided to plea youthful offender. I can't afford a lawyer, so how do I plea YO? Will the judge ask me when I get to court? I blew a 0.03 in the field, and a 0.06 when I got back to the station. Not sure how it went up, but it did. Also- this case is in Alabama.
