Caught underage drinking but no citation given -- what next?
So I was at a high school graduation party and was caught drinking by the police. I gave them my name and date of birth and took a breathalyzer test (blew a 0.079). The officers said that I could go through the court diversion process and they would give me paperwork before I left. They stayed with me until my ride came, but they never gave me any paperwork or said what they were going to do with me. Now I'm wondering what to do next; should I do nothing and wait or is there a way to find out if I have a citation/am in trouble? Thanks
If the officer purposely did not give you paperwork, it might be because he forgot but is still filing it with the...
Visiting VT from CA with a Non-Updated DUI License
I am visiting some family in Vermont. The story is I got a DUI a year ago. Completed all court and DMV requirements to be reinstated. When it came time to remove the interlock, I went to the DMV to update my license. Well they botched it and sent me the restricted license. The CA DMV appointments are so backed up, I am months away from changing this, but was informed by the DMV that it is not a problem because my updated status is in the National Registry. In fact I've been pulled over once in CA during this period and the officer confirmed I am okay to drive. Now my question is, can I drive in Vermont? Do officers have access to the national registry?
I am not licensed to practice in Vermont, so out of respect for any local experienced attorney from Vermont, refer to...
Can a person get their license reinstated in Vermont if they have a permanently revoked lic. in FL for 4 duis?
I know someone who has a permanently revoked license in Florida due to 4 DUI's. 2 out of state, and 2 in Florida. The last DUI was in May 2011 and he received his revocation in July 2011. This person has since moved to Vermont. He seems to think he can waltz down here to Florida and get an administrative hearing and get his license back just like that and be able to drive freely in Vermont. How realistic is this? I fear this person driving because he is a very active alcoholic. Will it be easy to get his license back after 4 DUI's? The last one he had a UBAL of .23. If he were to get a hardship/employment license reinstated. , would he be able to drive in Vermont? Florida law says he cannot even get an administrative hearing until 5 years after the last dui conviction.
Permanent revocation means just what it sounds like. That suspension should make him unable to obtain a license in any...
If a person knowingly gets auto insurance in their name, allowing a 4 time DUI driver w/ revoked license drive car, is it fraud?
I know of someone (and have written proof via internet messages) that a woman in Colchester, VT, knowingly financed a vehicle in her name and got insurance for the sole purpose of allowing a 4 time convicted DUI offender and documented alcoholic drive the vehicle full time. She lists her address as the home of the vehicle,yet, this drunk driver is the one solely in possession of said jeep. I found out they were insured by Geico and alerted their fraud dept. They investigated and dropped this woman from insurance for fraud. After that, she went to Progressive and obtained insurance. They are currently investigating the case. I have also let VT state police know and they are watching him. I have been giving tips for the past 6 months to cops and NICB. How serious of an offense is this
I cannot tell you the specifics above about Vermont law. I am a Maine attorney and I know in Maine this would be a...
Expunging a felony that occurred at age 18 :DUI with injury (broken arm. Now age 32; no more problems with law. Doable?
A drunk driving accident with a broken arm resulted in a felony conviction over 14 years ago. No other problems with the law have occured since then. Can it be expunged and how do I go about it?
More than likely, the state where it occurred has procedures for expunging records. Generally a DUI conviction is not a...
Fraudulent purchase of auto ins. in Vermont. Purchaser got insurance for person w/ 4 DUIs/permanently revoked lic. in FL
A woman in VT fully financed a car and purchased insurance for it in her name, however, she is NOT the primary driver. She bought it for someone who has 4 DUI convictions and a permanently revoked license in the State of FL. He has no license in VT either due to his FL convictions. This woman allows this man to drive the car 24/7 and keep it at his residence. She has her own vehicle. Geico investigated them late last fall and dropped them from the policy after finding that indeed, the purchaser was NOT the one driving the vehicle. They have lots of photographic and video evidence. Now they switched to Progressive who is investigating them for fraud. I have called the police in the area and no one wants to be bothered w/ this. How can these 2 have charges filed against them for this?
I suggest that you make note of the make, model, color and license plate number of the vehicle. The next time you see...
If I cross the Canadian border with my green card and they swipe it, will my DUI show up?
I went to Montreal on a regular basis for dance classes and have many friends there. If I ride with someone can I use my green card to cross? Will the DUI show?
Will it show up where? If you are concerned if you would not be permitted to re-enter the USA as a permanent resident,...
