Is it legal to hold a court date and not notify the victim of a DUI accident?
I was rearended by an impaired driver back the first of 2012. A local law enforcement officer seen the accident. The lady was then charged with DUI. I was then approached by the arresting office that the ladies attorney had contacted him wishing to get the charges dropped I advised him no I wished for the charges to remain at DUI. I then was approached by the same officer who advised me that the jury would be chosen and I would not have to be there for that. He also said he would notify me when the actual trial date was. I then found out they had the trial and dropped the charges down to reckless driving. I made contact with the arresting officer and he said that he sent word to my place of employment when the trial date was. I was never given a message from anyone at my place of work.
The state will typically notify a DUI victim of the trial date, but is not required to. This is because you have...
A man has following convictions 1/96 DUI 4/97 CDV 12/97 DUI 9/98 DUI
He applied for state job in 2014 but was not hired because of CDV. Applied for expungement through solicitors office. Expungement was denied because only 1 st offense can be expunged which in this case was DUI. Solicitors office suggested his only option was to apply for a pardon. He applied for a pardon in December 2014 and received pardon in June 2015 for all offenses. He went back to solicitors office to get CDV expunged. Was told CDV can not be expunged even after receiving pardon. Is the correct?
It seems correct, but I am not licensed in South Carolina. I am unclear why anyone would want an expungement after the...
DUI dismissed. Do I still have to do ADSAP for failure to submit to breathalyzer?
I was arrested in May of 2012. My case was dismissed by the Magistrate court because the officer was wrong in all aspects of the case and didn't want to press charges. I received a letter stating that I was able to have the DUI case expunged as well as any related charges, at no cost to me. Does that mean that I can have the refusal to blow dismissed or expunged also and avoid ADSAP?
You have 30 days to contest that refusal suspension. That suspension is separate from the criminal case in the...
How do you get a sign a form saying you are alright to drive if you had a DUI and take pain meds?
In 2006 I got a DUI and lost my licence.I paid my fine,took the required class for 8 weeks,paid for it and was then told since I take pain meds.that my Dr. would have to sign a form saying I'm good to drive.Ofcourse my Dr. won't sign because he's scared he'll get in trouble if get in a wreck.It's been almost 10 years w/out being able to drive ,which is very hard on my family.I don't drink or do any illegal drugs,but have had 2 back surgeries,2 knee surgeries and I have chronic pain.How do I get my licence back?I follow the rules and don't do anything illegal,but I'm still being punished for a mistake that I have already paid for.
I'm not sure who is telling you this (maybe the DMV) but I can put you in contact with some very good local attorneys...
How can you request video footage after you have been convicted of dui
I ended up getting caught in a road block after a 12 hour shift, I went to go pick up my son and after I got him I had to pick up my wife. The cop that told me to get out of the car because my eyes were red that's what he said at least gave me the test after i told him about my foot condition. I believe the footage would prove to my wife at least that i was not intoxicated because i recently found out that being tired and driving is the same as being drunk and driving. If its not to late I would love to reopen this case because my license is my way of living Thank you hope to hear from someone soon
I don't think scientific studies bear out the fact that drunk driving and tired driving are exactly the same. So,...
