Do I need lawyer for record expungement

You do not need an attorney. But, you probably want to talk to one. Based on your description, I do not believe you are...
Can you recieve an MIP while at home with your mother?
My brother and a friend were at the house drinking wth our mother. There was a noise disturbance, so we stopped dancing, and they gave the friend an eye test...he passed. They got another call and came back and gave all three of us MIPs, but i heard if your mother is present they cannot do that? And as for the friend, he had permission to be drinking with my mother, brother and I. The officer told my brother he was calling his college, but they cant do that without him actually being convicted. As for them knowing alcohol was consumed, the officer gave us each a breathlizer and never told us what we blew. There was no proof of anything besides an unopened bottle of alcohol.
Are you under the legal drinking age of 21? If not, you cannot legally consume alcohol, whether your mother is present...
DWI in Missouri last yr. All I have left to do is have a blow machine for 6 months. Will I still have to do if I move to Texas?
I got my second DWI in Missouri last yr. I did everything I was suppose to. I get my license back end of May then I am moving to TX. Once I get license back I was suppose to put that blow machine thing in for 6 months. Will I still have to install that if I move to TX?
The problem of the ignition interlock devise (IID) can blow up if you stop using it. First the six month as far of the...
Is a third DWI always a felony?
I just received my third DWI and just wanted to prepare myself for the outcome I also have a child that I have partial custody of and was wondering if his father could get full custody if I were to go to prison.
Please review Section 577.023, RSMo. It will always be a felony if the prosecutor decides to charge it as a felony and...
DUI from other state never showed up on driving record
In August of 2002 I got a DUI in Illinois but had a Missouri license. My Illinois lawyer told me Illinois couldn't suspend my Missouri license but that they could suspend it when Illinois sent the information to Missouri. It was never suspended and it isn't on my driving record. I was just at the dmv to update my address and heard them asking people if their license has ever been suspended or revoked. This must be something new they are asking because I've never been asked this question. When I renew my license in 2019 I am not sure how to answer this question. My license hasn't ever been suspended but my driving privileges in Illinois were taken away for 3 months. I am very confused but also don't want to bring it up if I don't have to, as it's been 13 years.
This is probably better posed to a MO lawyer but my suspicion is that when you apply for renewal MO will run PDPS and "...
Can a drug admission at a hospital be strong enough to be used against you in court?
A good friend of mine recently got himself into trouble. He was operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated (not on alcohol), and when he crashed (not terribly bad accident just fender bender) he was taken out of the car, cuffed, sat on the sidewalk and talked to for a bit, and then taken to a hospital. Apparently he wasn't actually arrested since when he left the hospital there was no bail and he ended up going straight home (had to have a sober ride pick him up). While he was in the hospital however, apparently he admitted to taking a drug earlier that day before the accident and it states he admitted this in a hospital document. We are wondering if this could be used against him in court to turn his charge into a DWI?
Admissions can be used against him if the city subpoenas the medical person to testify at a trial. His blood work...
Will a motion to suppress work.
I was arrested for dui. The officers probable cause is that I ran a red light that doesn't exist(I have good photos and videos to prove it). The real reason the cop pulled me over is due to my avoidance to an upcoming sobriety checkpoint. I drove through a business parking lot and then turned onto another main road. All of my turns were legal.
I suspect the officer's story is different than yours. However, if your story is accurate, you have a good suppression...
