I was sentenced to do 5 weekends in jail, Can this be changed to house arrest?
I was charged with tresspassing and sentenced to 10 days in jail with 1 year 11 months and twenty days suspended. The judge is allowing me to do my time on weekends, can this be changed to a sentence of house arrest and if so how? I am the only parent in the home that can watch our daughter and i need help if possible.
You can always ask... but at least in Northern Virginia, it is highly unlikely for a person to be allowed to spend...
How DUI works in different states?
My husband went out Last Thursday night and got an DUI for having a loud car and license plate light being off. He got arrested with BAC 0.10, he got 1st misdemeanor DUI (No.VA) even though he has another DUI in different state (MD) 8 yrs ago. He's job requires him to drive to job sites each day, with a company vehicle.. He just started his new job couple weeks ago, not sure if he needs to tell them right away or not. he's license is suspended for 7 days, but after the court date (next Monday) will he be in jail? I've told him to take alcohol programs before the court date.. so it'd look better on him.. Would the judge find out this is his second DUI? is he allow to drive in MD? Does he need a lawyer? He just wants to drive back and forth from work to home only.. to make that happen.. i'd assume he needs.. a lawyer?
A first time DWI with a .10 BAC is unlikely to receive jail time and would likely be able to continue to drive for work...
DUI ?
The city of Newport News Va , I ended up getting a not to bright lawer he didn't know if the prosecutor could not provide full Discovery he can ask for a dismissal but my problem is they didn't give me the whole video of my Sobriety test and doesn't Newport News have a local law that you have to get to your discovery and evidence 15 days before the court date ?
You get the attorney you pay for. If discovery is late that is grounds to continue. No judge would deny more time to...
I received a DUI in Toano but I was not breathalyzed, what do I do now?
I was pulled over and given a field sobriety test, but I was not administered a breathalyzer test. I feel that I should have passed the test. I was then arrested for a DUI. This is my first DUI and I'm scared for the outcome. I don't want this to stay on my record. Is it possible to get a DUI removed from your record? What should I do next?
You can either win your case at trial or have the dui amended to another charge. Either way, you will need to hire a...
DUI - Was this probable cause?
My husband was pulled over for going 37 in a 55. The speed limit had just changed - half a mile. He had been in his car with the license and registration for a good minute when the lights started bothering my husband, he opened his door and asked if the officer could possibly turn off his lights. He then looked at his eyes and gave him a breathalyzer, which he blew a 0.18. This is the first time my husband has ever been in any trouble. The officer never read him his rights, which I understand isn't always necessary. But he also never told him he had the right to an attorney, or anything. My question is this - was this indeed probable cause to pull us over? I felt that half a mile after the speed limit increase isn't much time to accelerate, and he was going 37, which obviously means that he was accelerating. The officer may have even turned his lights on before the speed limit change. Also, does the fact that my husband has severe acid reflux (which can cause a higher bac) help us any?
The officer does not need probable cause, merely reasonable suspicion. Driving slowly can be grounds for a traffic...
Can I avoid jail after violating probation for first DUI ?
I was convinced of DUI first offense in VA with a BAC of .09 I was in an accident with no injuries and found not to be at fault. I was sentenced 1 year probation, 90 days suspended jail time, ordered sobriety, VASAP and restricted license with ignition interlock. I have just finished my 10 ASAP classes and made the terrible mistake of consuming alcohol causing me to register a .02 or higher into the device the following morning which is a violation off my ordered sobriety, ASAP standards and is in VA a misdemeanor class 1 "driving on revoked" I have since recognized I have a problem and am going to AA twice a week. If my case manager reports this I will receive a show cause citation. I called my attorney, he just told me to wait until I get my citation then call him. I have a good job, a wife and 4 Kids, I am the sole provider. I will face the consequences of my actions and continue my sobriety with diligence, I just hope i have a shot at another chance to satisfy the court while continuing to provide for my family
Talk to your attorney. He knows your case best and the local habits of ASAP. Every location is different.
