Can I beat this case? How hard would it be?
I got pulled over for a dwi but I did not pass the line like he said I did. There was a tape of it but they said they could not produce it. I blew twice the legal limit.
There are many ways to fight a DWI case, including some procedures that could possibly get the breath test result...
I had a DUI reduced to reckless driving. Will it show up through employment background checks.
I had a DUI reduced to reckless driving. My lawyer informed me that the charge would not show up on my criminal record, Is that true? He said it would only go on my driving record. I live in North Carollina and received the ticket in South Carolina. My insurance has not increased and my license was not taken. Has the ticket been turned over to the state of North Carolina. It happened 2 years ago.
Unless you apply for a "driving" job, such as truck driving, UPS or other delivery service, I would not think the...
I was arrested for a DUI a week back
I was arrested for a DUI last week and my court date is pending.I am an IT consultant and have a job already but i was also applying for new jobs and i as i am on Work permit so i filled up their paperwork 2 weeks back marking "I don't have any arrests" as i did not.Now i am worried that arrest will come up after the background check and i will be honest when filling the background application form. Can this hamper my chances of getting this job?
All you can do is be as honest as you can. If you were not arrested at the time you filled out the application, you...
Is it legal for D.A. to Judge Shop in DUI or any criminal case?
While it would be next to impossible to prove but say if you or your attorney could prove that a D.A. purposely skipped certain judges in superior court and "magically" or purposefully schedule you to the (T2) second schedule trial after guilty and pleas when a historically known harsh DUI sentencing judge came up is that legal? Or is there a back office system that automatically schedules these cases as they come up? As a defendant with a long open case I feel that the D.A. definitely did some Judge Shopping. Reading about the Baltimore "judge shopping" allegation brought this to mind as thankfully my case has been resolved but wanted to know if that was legal either way.
I cannot speak for North Carolina but the issue arose in Illinois back in 1990 in connection with the prosecution's...
What are the statute of limitations 3 years after DUI arrest.
I was pulled over and told someone called in and said i was all over the road. I was hauled off to jail where they drew blood without even giving me a breathalyzer test first. I had not been drinking nor did i have any paraphernalia on my person or in my car. although i was on anxiety medication at the time. The officers let me singh my self out without any bond. It has been 3 years since my lab work has been sent off, and recently came back about a week ago. I was arrested in 2012. What do you think i should do.
I am a bit unclear on the facts. Was a criminal case filed against you in court?
Will I still get into college with a pending DUI charge?
I was charged with a DUI about a month ago. I have hired a lawyer who will keep postponing as long as possible. I am applying to transfer from a CC to a university this year and on the application they asked if I have any pending charges, which is a yes. How do I explain? I realize how stupid I was but this is the first time I have ever broken the law and I hope it doesn't ruin everything I have worked so hard for.
IF there is a place to explain then do it. If there is just yes or no then check yes. Never lie on an application, they...
