Can a previous charge of a Minor in Posession of alcohol be used against me in a case of being accused of a Minor DUI?
I was recently arrested and then accused at arraignment for being a driver under 21 and consuming alcohol (RCW 46. 61. 503). Two years ago i was convicted of being a Minor in Posession in Kenmore, WA and served out my probationary period of a year without getting in any criminal trouble, along with abiding by the other requirements, (court fees, community service, etc) I believe I remember the public defender telling me that the MIP would be expunged if i served all the requirements, but I want to make sure

Can I perform all duties of my WA DUI deferred prosecution in Ohio?
I would like to enter into a deferred prosecution for DUI (Actually, the charge is Physical Control) so that I can get it resolved as quickly as possible. I really need to move back home to Ohio for family reasons in the next few months. Is this workable?

CAN A JUDGE POSTPONE A DUI FOR 4 YRS SO 2 PRIOR DUIS WILL DROP OFF YOUR RECORD
I HAD TWO PRIOR DUIS AND JUDGE POSTPONED MY CASE SO MY OLD ONES WOULD BE OFF MY RECORD iN THE MEAN TIME I WOULD HAVE MY LICENCE Suspended FOR 2 YRS INTERLOCK IN MY CAR FOR ONE YEAR AND MY FINDS PAID BEFORE COMING BACK TO COURT. THEN i COULD PLEAD GUILTY TO A FIRST TIME DUI. Is that legal?
I suspect you misunderstand what is going on. No judge will simply continue a dui charge with w/2 prior. Futhermore,...
5 years later, Washington State DOL imposes IID on me, is there no recourse?
Bit clouded on this. In 2012 had a Neg Driving conviction. License was suspended then did my time, got it reinstated. Now, 5 years later they randomly cancel my license saying I need an IID for 4 months. Any recourse here or limitation on how they can come back this late and impose this now?
This is a somewhat common scenario and very frustrating. The legislature dictates what actions DOL takes against a...

I was arrested for DUI. My breath test was .089. I have not heard from the court yet, but I am going back to Japan next month. I am afraid that I am not able to appear in the court date. I am wondering if an attorney can appear for me.

How do I go about telling my attorney that the reason for my dui wasn't for drinking but for xanax?
I got charged with a dui after running a stop sign my bac was .082 the cop found marijuana in my car didn't confiscate it and did not arrest me but drove me back to where I was staying and made my friend walk back. I don't have any recollection of what happened because I had taken xanax the cop did not report anything about that though so I think he was unaware, I have an attorney and my main question is that is it okay to tell my attorney that I dont remember everything because of an abused prescription drug? Does that change anything about my case?
You absolutely need to tell your attorney this. One of the many things you need to figure out with your attorney is...
