I had court in June for a DUI case. court got rescheduled til the 3rd of July, 2014. Then somehow got switched to the 1st of July without my knowledge. the only reason I found out was because I went to the courthouse on the 3rd of July, where I also found out there was a warrant issued for my arrest for failure to appear. my lawyer told me not to surrender myself just yet because he was going to file for recall on the warrant which was denied. I've never missed court before ever. now I'm wondering how long they'll hold me. thanks.
You would typically be held until the next available date on your Judge's calendar where he would bring over inmates...
TRAVEL TO CANADA: I completed my diversion program for a DUI in January 2014, will I be denied entry to Canada?
I am aware that this remains on my arrest record. I am also aware that sometimes Canada might see the criminal charges but might not have the updated information that the charges have been dismissed (as per completion of diversion period). I wanted to know if it was safe to make my travel plans. If I carry information regarding my arrest and case, and/or will it be a problem at all? If it shows I was arrested and that the charges were dismissed (not convicted) will they deny me entry anyway? Thanks
Call the Canadian consulate and ask. I suspect it will be no problem as there are no pending charges and no warrant...
I was thinking I would just plead guilty to a dui instead of jumping through all the hoops of a diversion. Is this a good idea? What are the pro's and con's?
A diversionary program usually means when you're done you do not have a criminal record when it's all over. So...
I fulfilled all but one obligation assigned by the judge upon my DUI sentencing. I have 20 treatment "classes" to attend and have only been to 4 so far. I'm still going and progressing very well. Fact is i wouldnt have been able to complete 20 classes in 3 months anyhow since they are once a week so i have to reappear next Friday. Unfortunately, being truthful during the evaluation has not worked in my favor since the judge seems to be turning this into more of a marijuana issue than a DUI issue. What are the chances he will give me a UA when I go back to court and what happens if i fail? Before joining the Army 12 years ago it took 86 days to clear from my system and i didnt cheat even once. Will i immediately go to jail? Will he let me continue treatment? Please help
Every judge is different. In order to get the best educated best possible, you should contact a criminal defense...
I was arrested for DUI last weekend and am now figuring out everything I need to do. In the state of Kansas, you have 10 business days from the date of arrest to request a license hearing. My driver's license was issued in the state of Iowa, so does that mean I do not need to do this hearing since my license is not in this state?
If you do NOT want to drive in Kansas, then you do not need to worry about the 10 day deadline as you will be suspended...
I have a first time DUI. I will start my suspension next month for one year. I can apply for a restricted license after 45 days with IID. In those first 45 days or later can I get a License class "C" to drive a moped?
To my knowledge, when your license is suspended for something like DUI, you can't operate any type of motorized vehicle...
I complete and submit the form for diversion last week. My next court date to see if They accept it is on September 12th. Yesterday I went to a bar and not drink any alcohol. Can this interfere with my application. When I have to begin to fulfill the requirements of the diversion program?
No it should not likely affect the diversion application as you are not on diversion yet. However I suggest you...
