Laurel Hill Law

Can I fight this in any way shape or form and have positive results?
I received my first offence of a DWI two years ago. I wrecked my truck into the trees on the side of the road and was thrown from the vehicle. Needless to say I was given a blood alcohol test. I put off the court date, but was informed that Raleigh (where they sent my blood to be tested at) was backed up with work and that it would be a while before they got the results back. I went ahead with court and received a DWI and lost my lisence for a year. When getting a copy of my police report a year later for classes to get my lisence back, I was informed that Raleigh never sent my blood work back, rather they destroyed it. There is no proof I had alcohol in my system. It has been two years, but is there anything I can do about this? My main concern is to bring my HIGH insurance rates down. Thank you for your input and time.
Without blood test results what proof could be presented that you were drunk? Did you have defense counsel? Did you...
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.

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...
How can I get my drivers license back for a out of state N.C. D.U.I?
About 6 years ago I recieved a D.U.I. in North Carolina. 15 days later I got another one. I completed my 24 hours of community service and paid all the fines so that first DUI was 100% taken care of. In the mean time I moved to Wisconsin. I traveled back and fourth to NC 3 times that year for court dates but started a new job in wisconsin and missed the last appearance. Now I have a 2 year old son, own and opperate a technology company, own a house and have everything except for my drivers liceanse. Driving is a daily risk I have taken for the last 6 years to be able to make a living and now more than ever take care of my family. I keep running into brick walls and need a liceanse for so many things. How can I get my drivers liceanse back without returning to North Carolina? Is it possible to get the case sent up here for sentencing or is it possible to get North Carolina to drop the case if I agree to never return. I am unable to recieve a occupational license in Wisconsin because of this as well. Any input would be great, the lawyer I had down there has disappeared with my money so I am out of ideas at this point. There has to be a way.

If I get a DUI driving my friends car will he get a DUI also
If I get a DUI driving my friend car and he was a drunk passenger does he also get a DUI
Operation of a car is an element of the crime. In other words, the driver is charged regardless of who owns the car.
Will DWI mistrial most likely be retried?
DWI Superior Court Mistrail question. My case is still pending in Disctrict Court but if I'm found guilty and appeal for a Superior Court trial, what happens if there's a hung jury and a mistrial is declared? It is likely the DA would re-try the case? I'm just weighing my options due to the legal costs. Also, do a lot of DWI cases end up with a hung jury?
Asker, many cases in general end in a hung jury... it's difficult to get 12 people to decide on something and there's...
I was curious if it was possible to get a DUI expunged and/or removed from my criminal and driving record? Thank you!
I got arrested in Pender County, North Carolina when I was 21 while stationed in Camp Lejuene serving on active duty. This was over 10 years ago. The police officer asked me to take a breathalyzer test. I blew two twice, frustrated with the results because he didn't get a high enough BAC level. So he decided to haul me down to the station to take the test there. I tested twice more on a larger machine in which he still had not got the outcome I guess he wanted. He then yelled at me and told to stop trying to cheat the machine cause the readings weren't strong enough for him (which I still have the actual results for from that night.) At that point I had felt I had done enough to satisfy the law. He asked me to test again. I told him to get lost in one or two other words. At which point he arrested me and charged me with refusal. I had family from out of state bail me out and had to return about a month later for a court date. I showed up in uniform accompanied by my Sergeant. I was young and confused at the time. I did not have any representation and was pretty much advised to plead guilty which I did. Not sure if the judge had mercy on me but I don't remember fines or anything.
You may be potentially eligible for an expunction, but it has nothing to do with why you pled guilty or what happened...
