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.
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 got a dui in north Carolina in 2003 and got put on probation I elected to bypass probation and serve my prison term.
Since then I had gotten several DWLR to tickets, which I have just recently had handled. So I go to DMV to reinstate my license and they tell me I have to complete dwi assessment. That was part of my probation which I elected to bypass and severe my time in prison. Should I still have to do the assessment since it was part of my probation terms or should I be able to get my drivers liscense with time severed.
You may have elected to serve active time, but with a DWI conviction in NC, you're still required to have an assessment...
Will I be able to reinstate my FL DL after a DUI in GA in 2009?
I just went to court and finally handled my DUI. My Florida licensed expired in 2012 & I have not driven since. I actually live in North Carolina and was going to apply for a NC license after I finish DUI school and have my driving ban lifted in GA. I just recently did a driver's license check in FL and realized that my license in FL is revoked/due to the DUI. Want to know if FL will accept the 16 hour certificate class that I take in NC & if I will be able to get my license reinstated there. I am not certain if I can apply for a license in NC if I have a suspended license in another state. Thank you for your help.
Most states inflict DL suspensions and/or restrictions on the holder of a state DL when they receive a DUI/DWI in any...
When is your blood tested after a car accident?
Someone has been in a car accident with serious injuries and taken into an ambulance. There were other people involved in the accident but they were the only one to have their blood tested because an officer said everyone else appeared normal. I read that the police use the blood from the hospital for testing for DUI. The person they tested has been told they had opiates in their system but could that be from the ambulance?
That's a question for a pharmacologist or other medical expert not a criminal defense attorney.
What could happen after a Failure to appear from 19 years ago? Can the warrant be recalled and can this be dismissed for lack of
I was arrested for a DUI in 1998. I hired a lawyer and he was handling my case. He had it continued. Later that year I moved to Florida (I obtained a FL drivers license) where I returned to NC on 3 separate occasions to attend my court date, which in turn was again continued. Some where along the line something got lost in translation and I believed my lawyer had handled this because I never heard from him again. Three years ago I moved back to NC for a teaching job and obtained a NC drivers license. Several Months ago I applied for a hand gun permit and found that I had a warrant. I have contacted the same lawyer and he is suggesting a Class II misdemeanor for careless and reckless. I'm not sure that's in my best interest.
Had your lawyer handle the charge in your absence, you would have either been given an amount to pay to the court for...
