Last week, I was arrested for a second DUI offense within the past two years. Can I avoid jail time with aid from a good lawyer?
It was my second offense within the last two years.
POSSIBLY
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...
I am on probation for a DUI and recently got a driving on suspended 1st time. Am I facing immediate jail time?
I am almost finished with my probation. I only need to pay $1000 dollars and I'm finished. I have court July 22nd to follow up with the judge. I also got in a wreck and didn't stop to give information. My fiance was having a panic attack and needed her meds. The guy I hit followed me home. I am going through an eviction process with my fiance and we have a 9 month old son with us. I cannot leave them behind and do the 12 month underling sentence.
I don't know about KS but you would 100% guaranteed be facing 364 days in jail in FL for DWLS and an additional 364 for...
My question is about IID time period.
I got my first and only DUI. Going on almost 5 years or so ago. I finished my probation and classes. Was cleared by the courts. But i dont have a car. And haven't had the money for one. Let alone for the IIDto be iinstalled plus the monthly fee. My question is there any limit of time for the need of a IID to stop? Or could i go another 50 years where i cant get my license back u ntill i get a car and install an IID to it for a year. Seems harsh. Since its been over 4 years since i was cleared for my Dui by the courts and i haven't drove in all of that time.
Yeah, I don't know any way to get out of the time requirement. Sorry man.
Drug testing costs in diversion program
i am currently in a diversion program for a first time DUI charge in Johnson county , ks. During my first meeting with my diversion officer, they asked me to have a drug test done for 25 bucks at a lab corp. I understand they will ask me to have these tests done at times throughout the 1 year diversion. I am wondering how often on average do they ask to do it? I figure worse case would be if they asked at every single monthly meeting, which would be 12 tests max or 300 bucks for the year. Could it possibly be more than this? Less? I know everyone is different, just curious what a typical experience is like for someone. I have been in the program for a couple months, already have all my classes done, so these drug tests would be my only remaining costs.
The best defense is to always be clean and sober then you don't have to worry especially if they call you in for an...
