Can they upgrade my Public Intox to a DUI after I've been to court and plead not guilty to the PI charge?
They could have given me a DUI charge. Also, they didn't breath test or blood test. I'm not 100% sure on the blood test because I had to get stitches in my head at the hospital. The cops were present with me. I'm not sure that I was intoxicated. The head injury could have been a concussion. They said that at the hospital. Thank, you. Terrance
They likely would have done it by now. Retain a local criminal lawyer though to fight this. Avvo has a terrific "find...
Is that considered a drug offense subject to A.C.A. 27-16-915. Suspension for conviction of controlled substances offense
It can be, but it is not usually charged that way unless you were also in possession of drugs. DWI carries its own...
The first one was by the Arkansas State Police A.C.A 27-16-303. This one from a Deputy Sheriff A.C.A. 5-65-104. My license were suspended for DWI /Drugs. The penalties for each one are different. If somebody got it wrong can I get it dismissed? They're over one year apart.
If your license was suspended for DWI, then you can be charged under either statute for driving on a suspended license....
I was arrested for DUI - Drugs in Lawrence County Arkansas. I actually had a stroke. I was cuffed and taken to jail.
I was left hand cuffed and had multiple seizures for about 3 - 4 hours. Sheriff Deputy told State Trooper I needed to go to an Emergency Room. He called my wife to tell her he was having me sent to an ER. She told hime to send me to Jonesboro, AR. He refused and said it was more convenient for him to go to Lawrence Cty Hosp. The ER Convinced him I was having a stroke and not on drugs with tox screen, He picked up the traffic ticket. I was rushed to Little Rock AR Baptist Hospital for ER. The whole way I was having multiple seizures. I wasTotally unconcsous or incoherrent from the time I was pulled over till two about 2 days later. It has been 2 months I still have some short term memory loss and a damaged vein on my right wrist (Bump) where I was handcuffed. After 2 mos. cleared to work.

Can a DUI conviction from two n a half years ago be reduced to reckless driving? I'm trying to get my license back.
I got convicted of a DUI in Arkansas back in 2012. But at the time I still had a Illinois drivers license so it also registered in Illinois. So my license is revoked until 2018. Even though I did what was required of the state of Arkansas and paid all off my fines, and also I'm not suspended in Arkansas any longer, I'm still suspended in Illinois. And I've lived in Arkansas for five years now and cant get a license here because of illinois. And i need my car for work. But the DMV in Illinois said the only way that they can drop the revocation is if I can get the conviction in Arkansas reduced to reckless driving. Because reckless driving isnot a felony in iIllinois.
The answer is no as to "reduction of charge" as it applies to the Arkansas conviction.
I gave a urine sample twice for my work and they did not read a temp. The second sample was monitored management .
Caused of tampering witha urine sample at Tyson foods. These test are suppose to be random yet I've been tested twice in the last 2 months when no one else was tested twice.
I don't really see how this is a criminal law question, as it looks more like an employment law question. If so, you...
I was pulled over last march and got a dwi in arkansas. I have not gone to court yet, my attorney is taking it to trial in Jan.
I am being transferred to Colorado by the company I work for on Dec 1. It was suggested by the law office I am working for that I wait at least 6months before I try to get a Colorado license to avoid having a suspension in Colorado. My license is currently restricted in arkansas. I will be done with my alchohol classes and be able to get the interlock system off of my vehicle on Nov. 26th here in arkansas before I leave. Colorado told me that I have to get a Colorado drivers license within 30 days of working in Colorado. Law office said that if I am convicted in arkansas that the state will report the DUI to whatever state I am currently holding a drivers license in. I will need to get new car insurance in Colorado too. Trying to avoid Colorado suspension and 9 m. More of interlock. HELP
Attorney is correct -- your DUI problems in AR will be known to CO if you are convicted. Hope you have a GOOD lawyer...
