You should contact a attorney in panama city to help you with your case and contact the attorney that you used in your...
What happens to a 2 year conditional permanent resident that has gotten a DWI and DUI in less than 3 years apart?
In 2010 my husband got a DWI in Missouri. He spent 2 years in jail because he is hispanic and was out of "status". He entered the US legally but overstayed. To make a long story short we won our case with immigration April 2012. The judge granted him a 2 year conditional permanent resident card (since we weren't married at the time for very long). Now my husband tells me he just got a DUI in Arkansas yesterday (he wasnt driving but the key was in the ignition and it is dry county in Jonesboro Arkansas) What does this do to him when he goes before immigration in April 2013 to apply for citizenship or a 10yr permanent resident card?
He should be OK ... talk to the lawyer that helped your 'win' the case with the Immigration Judge for confirmation.
What does this mean? (Missouri)
I looked up someone's case on Case Net for a DWI. Their attorney got them to plead guilty and they got a suspended sentence and I guess probabtion for 2 years. Where it stated the fines it said "$200.00 LERF" what does that mean?
That means he had to pay $200 to the law enforcement restitution fund.
What can a DWI be reduced to in Missouri if it is a first offense?
It was a first offense and the driver was pulled over immediately after leaving a gas station that the officer was at. The officer never told the driver why he was pulled over and asked the driver to get out of the car as soon as the officer got to the window. Can a DWI be reduced to an offense that will not affect insurance rates or even be reduced at all?
Not enough information to be able to answer your question. But hiring the best lawyer is always going to result in a...
I have an MIP for Marijuana possession, 17 years old, will I have my license suspended if I wasn’t driving?
The officer liked me a lot. I was in the passenger seat with marijuana. They told me I wasn’t in much trouble. They told me if i plead guilty id be fine. I should just get it explunged later and what not. My concern is if I wasn’t driving and the car was parked, do I get my license suspended anyway?
Don't take legal advice from a police officer. It's possible that your license will be suspended if you were...
What should I do? I missed my court date on a DWI.
I missed my court date on a DWI and was scared. This was 3 years ago. I have not been driving and live far away from where I was charged. I want to turn myself in and take care of this. This is my 4th dwi with a decade in between. I've been told it's a misdemeanor. Do you know how long I'd spend in jail and if I'd ever be able to get my license back. Thank you
You should first retain an experienced Missouri criminal defense lawyer to represent you before you do anything along...
I live in Missouri and have a MO license if I get an administrative suspension in Kansas for refusal what happens to MO License?
I am fighting a DUI with test refusal in Kansas. I just won my criminal case so the only battle left to fight is the Kansas Administrative hearing which I am appealing. If I lose that appeal, how is my Missouri drivers license affected? From what I can find on-line is that I can pretty much drive freely anywhere but Kansas because the suspension is only administrative not criminal. And what about the interlock requirement? Why should I care if I don't have a right to drive in Kansas ever?
Your Missouri license will be revoked if you lose your KS admin hearing.
