I received a DUI in georgia but I live in DC. I plead nolo contendere, which is essentially a guilty plea. However, in my paperwork from my lawyer it stated "I hereby authorize my attorney to enter a plea of nolo contendere/guilty on my behalf and in my absence to all charges related to the above styled matter and sign any and all necessary document regarding same to an ordinance which will not report on my criminal history." what does this mean? I also paid online for a background check on myself and nothing came up. Please advise.

I am a 60 year old woman who needs to have my license reinstated but can not afford the expense. I live with my daughter who is a single parent of 2 children. She works everyday and has a lot of running around her own self with her children and errands she has to do. After my 2nd DUI 08/18/2011 I completed the Risk Reduction Class... Did the clinical treatment class... Did my court ordered time for community service...and do not have any other traffic violations. I have waited over 4 years to try and reinstate my license just to find out I have to do all of this again. How can I get these expenses wavered?

One was on Federal property and a wreck was involved. There was never any evidence that said I had been drinking but I was convicted anyway I hadn't been drinking but I am tired of trying to convence people to that fact; the cause of the accident was deer. The second in 2010 was on a moped- not on a major road- in which case I was drunk. This DUI charge in 2015 was Dui less safe alcohol and dui less safe marjuana in which I had not smoked despite the charge. What am I to do? Both DUI charges in 2010 were reduced to reckless driving. This charge of DUI in 2015 is still pending.
Prior CHARGES of DUI are not admissible unless you were convicted.
My Dad was charged with DUI. There were no witnesses, and not even the cop saw what happened. My Dad was off the road, his scooter fell into a ditch, and he was trying to lift it out . A cop pulled up and did not see anything that happened. My Dad told the cop he was riding the bike and crashed into the ditch, and had a little to drink. Then the cop gave him a breath test and he failed. Is there any way to get my Dad's testimony thrown out, since it may not have been credible due to diminished capacity from alcohol consumption? The cop did not even see him riding, there is no other evidence except for my Dad's drunken testimony.
Based on the facts you provided, i think there is circumstantial evidence that your dad was driving the scooter,...
