Can I
Can i drink at home while on probation but non reporting. I completed all the required conditions as per the sentence. Will I be screened again randomly for ETG or any other tests ?
You can, but you shouldn't. There is often a "no alcohol inome" provision in your order.
I failed a my probation drug test (swab) and a few hours later passed a lab test, is that enough to not get my probation revokd?
I went in for my drug test for probation and was given a swab test. I tested positive for benzos (never done it and never will have, i didn't even know what the drug was.) I saw the faint line (line = negative) however the probation officers were having none of it and didn't even want to look again. I told them I would be more than willing to take another test then and there (begged for 10 minutes) to no avail. A few hours later I went to a drug screening business (labcorp) and received documents saying I tested negative for all 11 drugs screened (including benzos.) I have a hearing in eleven days. Will I be fine? Do I still need to higher a lawyer?
You may be okay, you may not be. Do you really want to take that risk? So yes, you need to hire a lawyer.
What is the process and actions that I must pursue to obtain this temporary restricted license?
I am 66 with a clean driving record for 50 years. I was arrested in Tennessee in February and charged with DUI. I pleaded guilty and paid my fines, spent 48 hours in jail. My license has been suspended for 1 year. I need to obtain a restricted GA drivers license for work related purposes. I have a signed court document indicating that this was my first DUI conviction.
Hopefully a licensed GA attorney will respond to your question because you will need to speak to someone who is...
Would it be best to retain my previous DUI lawyer or hire a new layer for the violation of probation situation?
I was arrested recently arrested for driving on a suspended license. I am currently on probation for DUI while this happened. My mom was in the car with me when I was arrested for driving with a suspended license. I was driving her car because she twisted her ankle walking out of Chipotle. I was pulled over it was for having a headlight out and no tail lights which I didn't realize because it is not the vehicle I usually drive. The officer ran my license and found it was suspended. I did not inform the officer of my mother's injury because was scared as to what was going on and my mother wasn't able to articulate what was happening because she too was shocked with how the situation was unfolding. I know this is a new arrest so it counts as a violation of my probation for the DUI. I had completed 2/3 of the terms set for my DUI probation including community service and drug/alcohol evaluation. I will inform my probation officer prior to my next meeting. What are my options as far as not having to face jail time for the probation violation? My life is a mess. My probation was in Gwinnett co and my driving without a suspended license was in Forsyth. What are my likely options?
You may or may not have options, we just don't know without more information. Whatever options you may have will...
Is it legal to obtain a drivers license in Pennsylvania when it was suspended in Georgia for a DUI, then failure to pay CS?
My ex had his license suspended in GA where we lived in April for a DUI. While it was and currently is, still suspended, DCSS in GA also suspended it due to failure to pay CS in August. Before the DCSS suspension (keep in mind it was already suspended due to the DUI- I guess you can have multiple suspensions at once on your DL?), he moved to PA (in June) and obtained a PA license there- I’m not sure how. I guess the fact that GA isn’t a DLC state and doesn’t know of these 2 suspensions. My questions are, is this illegal of him to have obtained the PA license and also can he drive with the PA license in GA if he tried to pick out child up for a court ordered visitation?
Georgia is one of five states which has not joined the Interstate Drivers License Compact. Therefore it does not share...
