What consequences can I expect in Kansas from failing 1st UA on DUI Diversion?
I have not been granted diversion yet, but my lawyer assures me it will not be a problem. I am concerned because I know that I am going to fail my first UA when I go on diversion in 1-2 weeks. What will my consequences be? If I'm going to fail, does it really matter when I quit as long as it is prior to going on diversion?
Hello there, Its up to the diversion officers to determine if they want to continue monitoring you on a pretrial...
DUI questions
I am being charged with DUI even though I wasn't seen driving. I lied for my boyfriend at the time who had an accident behind me. I claimed something like a cat or dog came across the road and caused him to swerve into a fixed object. By the time police and ambulance services came, my car was parked in a parking lot with the keys/FOB in the front flap of my purse. My car doesn't operate using a key-it uses a FOB, the hood was cold and no GPS was pulled out of it showing when it was last operated. There was mass confusion on the scene-my then boyfriend had a head injury and the cop who started in on me wasn't the original cop on the scene. We were told about the confusion from the tow truck people I called. I refused to do any field sobriety tests. I wasn't allowed to leave and was placed in handcuffs. It was a custody. I had a blood test done. I know for a fact they used an alcohol swab because I have a severe aversion to needles. It came out .08. At that point, they said I wasn't in custody and free to go-releasing me to drive. 7 mos. ltr., I get the citation in the mail. Is it normal to allow someone under the suspicion of DUI to just leave and get back in a car to drive home?
It is atypical, and probably good for your defense, especially during cross-examination. However, though atypical,...

Will I be drug tested for a MIP in the state of Kansas?
I was driving my friend home from a party and he had a case of beer in the car. I was pulled over for speeding and the officer saw the beer in plain sight and searched the entire car. He found drug paraphernalia, but my friend took responsibility for it because it was not mine and I had not used it. We were both issued a citation for an MIP since the beer was in my vehicle, but I had passed the breathalyzer test while my friend did not. My court case is in a month and I was wondering if I can expect a drug screening any time between now and then? And is there any use in fighting the case? Thank you any advice is appreciated
No, generally you wont be required to test prior to your first appearance. Whether or not you will be required to do so...

What is the process for driver's license reinstatement in Kansas following an interlock restriction?
I have had an ignition interlock on my vehicle since 2012. According to my restriction letter, online driver's license status, and driving record I am up for reinstatement as of 4/18/16. From here, do I need to wait for Driver Control to send me a letter with the reinstatement requirements before I can pay the fines and reinstate? Also, my license expires on May 21, 2016. If I am not able to reinstate by then, can I renew my license while keeping the interlock? Or, if not, can I just continue driving with the interlock and restriction notice? I have tried calling, emailing, and faxing Driver Control with no results.
If your interlock restriction period is up, you just need to go to the local DMV and pay the reinstatement fee, ($400...
