Can I be issued a citation for "boating under the influence" if I am boating on PRIVATE property rather than on public waterways
I was recently fishing on a river in Kansas and had drank a few beers, upon returning to shore I was approached by law enforcement and subsequently given a BUI. I didn't think they had jurisdiction on private property, like they do on public waters.
I don't know what the Kansas case law says, but the statute says you can't operate a boat while intoxicated anywhere in...
Is it legal for me to be driving their vehicles as long as it is exclusively for normal job functions?
I was charged with DUI in Kansas, got a diversion and successfully completed that diversion. My license status is currently restricted to the use of a vehicle with an ignition interlock device. Unless it is an employers vehicle. I survey pipelines in different states all over America, and during work it is required that I drive other employees vehicles that they personally own, to complete job tasks. The company pays them a mileage rate.
That's different than an employer's vehicle. Speak to a local dui lawyer for specific law.
Can medications that interact with alcohol be a defense in a DUI?
I got a DUI a few weeks ago. I have not been to the initial hearing yet (it's next week). The night I was stopped by police, I had only had two drinks over two hours, but long story short, I asked to be given a breathalyzer to prove I hadn't drank much. I ended up blowing a .14. I later found out one of the medications I had been taking to lower the tolerance to my prescription stimulants, also lowers tolerance to alcohol and slows the metabolism of alcohol in the body. I was not aware of this side effect, although it makes perfect sense now how my blood alcohol level could be so high after drinking so little. Can I use this as a defense in court? Or will they most likely say I should have known the risks of mixing alcohol with this medication? Please help.
This is a question that needs much more detail and knowledge of specific defenses allowed under your state law. The...
Why would a DUI in a municipal court be transferred to "felony court?"
My child's father has a few DUIs, and I am not able to see the details about them. I can see very little online, but I did notice that the latest DUI was marked "transferred to felony court." Does this mean that he is going to go to jail??
He isn't very forthcoming with this information, and I want to know what is about to happen.
It means that it is at least a 3rd offense or higher. In Kansas, the first 2 DUIs are misdemeanor offenses and then the...
What are the consequences of failing a drug test while on house arrest for felony DUI?
Someone I care about is currently on house arrest as a plea for a third DUI. He has about three weeks left before starting his probation with an underlying sentence of 12 months. This is his first drug test and he is confident he will not pass. He told his house arrest officer he is drug free, but he really wants to get into a rehab facility instead of jail. Does he have any chance??
Your friend needs to talk to his lawyer. It is likely that he will do the balance of his sentence in jail. If he is...
earlier in sept. my adult daughter was put thru a dui check point in tonganoxie,ks. she knew she had alcohol in her system and the officer could smell beer in the car. she refused the breath test in the field so she was arrested and taken to the police station for booking. after booking she realized she had made a mistake and agreed to the breath test which was below the legal limit. she was released and will have to appear in court 10/20/16. the court is 250mi from her home and the county official demands her to appear in court
Depending on which court she has been charged in and exactly what charges she is facing an attorney may be able to...
I got arrested on 7-3. The date served on my DC-27 copy it shows a date of 7-4. Today I called the Department of Revenue ( Administrative hearing) and they said that they haven't received the DC-27 from the officer yet. Its being 21 days since my arrest. I read on my copy that the officer needs to turn in the DC-27 within 7 days. Can I get this dismissed since he has not done anything??? I did requested my hearing in time though!
No. If the officer turns the paperwork in late the suspension process will commence. Did you request a hearing on...
