This seemed to be the most appropriate practice area to post this question in.
I pled guilty to use of marijuana (I had a previous marijuana offense and got 7411). My driver’s license has been suspended for 6 months, with the possibility of a restricted license after 30 days. I have a few questions regarding the restricted license:
1. Who decides if I get a restricted license – the judge or the Secretary of State?
2. Is there paperwork that must be filed with the court or SOS to request the restricted license? Should I have an attorney help me in this process?
3. Are points placed on my driving record for the suspension? Will the suspension affect my insurance rates?
4. Is there a fee associated with the issuance of a restricted license?
1. The judge.
2. Yes and yes.
3. No/probably not.
Please feel free to call me with additional questions....
My son was sentenced for a 2nd DUI. He was given the choice of an ISP program with 18 months probation or 180 days in jail. My son went to jail, and there he received an assessment for the ISP program. He was not equipped to take a program and its expense, so he chose jail. So the judge said that since he did not take the program, his sentence will be for 1 year instead of the 180 days originally stated. I have his paperwork which states his sentence was for 180 days.
You need to order a transcript of the court proceeding where the Judge said 180 days of jail instead of 1 year. I...
On 9/30/12, I was driving my ex husbands vehicle that he bought for me but was registered to him. I was struck by a drunk driver who fled the scene, leaving me in the vehicle, trapped. When I awoke, I was covered in blood and both air bags had deployed. I screamed for help but he refused & ran into the woods. I kicked my door open and chased the man through the woods with my Large MagLight. I caught him & hit him from behind with my flashlight and he fought me to let him go. The police witnessed me dragging this man by his shirt out of the woods & down the dirt road to where they were standing. He was arrested & transported to ER for medical attention. I suffered a head injury, neck sprain & a concussion that I am just now recovering from. Car was totaled & medical bills denied by Geico.
i am wondering if i can still live with my parents if i am on probation for a first offense dui in michigan? if the terms state that i cannot possess any alcohol, can i still live with my parents who do have it? if they lock it up, keep it in there room and is not out in the open, will that be ok? just really freaking out because i cannot afford to live on my own right now, i have a full time job but with school bills and such, i cannot afford any more payments at this time. thanks!
Talk to your PO and your parents. The likely answer is "no alcohol in the house" but it doesn't hurt to ask.
