WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU RECEIVE A SUMMONS FOR A DUI?
I have been charged with an OUI DRUGS AND LEAVING THE SCENE FROM PROPERTY DAMAGES. The police didn't arrest me, I was taken to the hospital and a few days later received a criminal summons which I mailed back asking for a hearing. I was under ambien a new prescribed medication from my doctor. Unknowingly I grabbed the keys and my two children and we're heading to the pharmacy and I hit a light pole down the street. I called my sister to the scene, once she arrived I told her I was not feeling well and crossed the street (accident happened a few houses down) and when I got to my driveway i fainted. In the hospital they found alcohol in my system which I don't recall drinking nor grabbing my keys or anything that happened.
Failing to appear in court when summoned can result in a warrant. In a case such as the one you describe it is...
Can I get denied employment due to a CWOF from a DUI?
One year ago I was placed on a CWOF for a DUI in Massachusetts. Since then, everything has been taken care of: I completed all my classes, paid all my fines, got off probation, and everything was dismissed. Fast forward to now- I was offered and accepted a new job, pending a background check. It's taking a while to hear back about it (about a week), and I'm wondering if the CWOF is going to ruin my chances of this job? It's for a retail store, so nothing too serious like childcare or law enforcement or anything like that.
Since 2012, when Governor Patrick pushed through CORI reform [much to his credit], people with CWOFs have been able to...
Can a make a CWOF plea in Massachusetts without an attorney?
This is my first offense OUI. I have no other criminal history. I make just enough money so that I apparently do not qualify for a court appointed attorney, but I do not make enough money for a private one... I have been reading about a "continuance without a finding" plea, and I am wondering if I can make that without an attorney. If so, how?
Sure it's possible but it's not advisable. I understand your situation but now would be the time to borrow money from...

I was notified by the MASS RMV on May 12, 2015 that my current license will be revoked/suspended on June 7th for a DUI i had in NH back in June, 1989. Is there a way to prevent this action?
It depends, if you are not reinstated in New Hampshire that is the likely cause of the problem. Check the status of...

Even if you had a civil case, you would still be liable for driving on a suspended license.
Would the cost of appealing a CWOF for potentially faulty breathalyzer be worth it financially?
According to reports on the myfoxboston.com website, there appears to be a potential issue with some breathalyzer results due to a certain cleaning solution being used which is resulting in improper results. I agreed to a CWOF in January of this year and received unsupervised supervision and the 24D disposition which mandates the 16-week DAE program. Would it be worth it to see if my case would potentially be one of the affected cases, and if i did appeal is there a potential of losing the CWOF disposition?
Possibility. It depends on what the other facts of your case were. Was there other evidence, other than the breath test,...
