I blacked out, and I was arrested for driving on a suspended license and a hit and run for stealing a truck. What do I do?
I do not remember anything at all about the incident. When arrested on scene it said I blew a .07 but I cannot recall a single thing and I'm scared. I do not know what to do. I also am pregnant. I would never do anything like this. My past record is I have 2 DUI's. I am NOT on probation for either. My license is suspended. How do I, or is it possible for me to stay out of jail for my baby?
You get an attorney. Your prior a will not help you and jail is a very real possibility. You should also probably get...
I am looking to get my license back in Michigan after losing it to a DUI 7 1/2 years ago when I was 21.
I finished all my requirements for my 2 year probation including all payments during that time. I don't drink and I don't do drugs but I also don't attend AA. Being a student in debt, and a mother to one I can't afford a lawyer to represent me. I live out of state, I have the paperwork to fill out and send back to them but I will not have attended AA since the required 2 years mean they won't take my sobriety seriously? Is there a way to get advice on how to write a professional letter to the judge?
There is some serious confusion going on here and you need to get some direction. If your license was revoked by the...
Do I need a lawyer for a DUI court appearance? If I plead guilty can I ask that the charge be reduced to reckless driving?
This is the first time that I have been arrested, on any charge. I have a clean driving record and no history of legal trouble of any kind. I was stopped because I was not staying in one lane. There was no other car involved, and no collision of my car with any object. I was cooperative, but when asked to walk outside of the car I had trouble standing due to arthritis in my hip and knee. I took a breath test and my results were 0.13.
You need to immediately and privately consult with a criminal defense attorney. Do not post anything online--even on...
Can an attorney withdraw from my case simply because he disagrees with my decision to go to trial?
I was arrested over 2 years ago for a DUI, and the case is still pending. I am searching for a new lawyer and should be going to trial within 2 months. I paid my attorney a good amount of money as a flat rate to include everything up til trial, with the agreement that if the case goes to trial, another flat rate would be paid. We were able to suppress a lot of key evidence, including all of my statements and the breathalyzer. The prosecution offered a plea bargain (careless driving), and I refused, because I have a very strong case that might actually win at trial. My attorney thought I should take the plea, and asked to be removed from my case (which the judge granted). It this reasonable and normal, or a violation of ethics?
Yes an attorney can move to withdraw at any time and if the judge allows it, which in your case they did. Are you...
Can an arrest without conviction (pending trial for a DUI) come up on a background check or all employers to deny employment?
I was arrested for a DUI in March of 2012, and am still fighting it 2 years later. This case has dragged on and is now supposed to be going to trial in the next 2 months. I have been afraid to apply for a better job until it is resolved, because I don't want this to show up on a background check. It is bad enough that my license has been clipped for 2 years so I have to show prospective employers my state ID and can't apply for jobs that require driving. Does an arrest show up on a background check? Is it legal for employers to deny me employment if so?
As far as I know, it won't show up on most checks until a conviction. However, I understand that if you apply for some...
My car was totaled when it was hit head-on by a drunk driver. But there is no incident report?
My car was totaled when it was hit head-on by a drunk driver. The police took away the woman and there was no incident number given to my boyfriend driving the car or the towing company. Now, over a week later, they are saying no incident report was filed. I called both the claims office and sub-office for my county. What are my next steps of action in finding the incident report, if there was one written?
Drive to and go inside the local law enfrorcement agency and figure this out. There has to be a record. You should...
How does my DUI affect my Green Card petition
I had a DUI in '09. I went for my immigration interview yesterday. the immigration officer stated that i should expect my card or a letter for more information in 14days pending a background check. I gave them the disposition from the court. Is this a good sign or not? I thought they'd have done these background checks already
You should be fine if it was a simple DUI but if you get anything but an approval not hire an attorney.
