Sc highway patrol or dmv ruined my driving record with inaccurate information
Abt 3 years ago i was a victim in a hit and run. The other driver was arrested but charges dismissed bc officer was arrested and fired for domestic violence. I never looked at my driving record until i was informed by my insurance agent that reason im paying high rates is due to the hit and run(at fault). So for 2.5 years i have been paying high premiums bc of this "error". What can i do? Sure i can probably make calls to have it changed on my record which i will do monday but they way i figure it is im out abt 6000 dollars for there mistake. Not to mention i called a trucking company that i applied for a driving job 2 years ago and asked why was i passed up and thay said bc of hot and run on my record. So i ask who gets sued to recoup my lost money and missed job oppurtunity?
Your biggest problem right now is the statute of limitations may have run already, typically 3 years, and you have...
Conufsed about out of state DUI case. What happens to my SC license when I get convicted of DUI in Missouri?
2014 I was pulled over and immediately asked for a lawyer once the officer said he could smell alcohol coming from the vehicle, taken to jail for suspicion of dui. I received tickets for refusal and dui. I immediately talked to a lawyer and they were able to keep me driving. In Feb I received a new job and ultimately moved to South Carolina. I needed a physical license at the time for proof and I was able to obtain one. I have not went to court yet, lawyers say they can win my refusal but may have to plead guilty in dui. How will this affect my SC drivers license? If my MO drivers license gets suspended will it suspend my SC dl too? What about sr22? If MO requires me to SR22, will that apply only in MO or other states too? I drive sometimes 1500 miles/week for work mainly in sc/82nd.
Most likely suspended. You'll have to eventually contact Missouri and get the hold lifted from your license.
Under the FOIA, does the tape of someone who followed me from a restaurant and falsely reported me drunk have to be given to me?
I was stopped and found not drunk or even questionably drunk. A stranger followed me, I am a 62 year old female and frightened. Do I not have the right to know her name? I feel slandered and scared of this unknown woman that chose to do this.
FOIA allows access to records maintained by the government. The restaurant does fall into that category, but the if...
Will the prosecution find my old DUI from another state?
I just got a DUI in and am nervous that the prosecutors will find my first DUI six years ago in another state under my maiden name. How likely is it will they find it and will it definitely be charged as my second offense?
It is pretty likely that the authorities will find it and charge you with DUI 2nd.
I did an online criminal background check and couldn't find my previous DUI, could it be expunged?
It's from 6 years ago. When I did a background check no results came up and it said the charges may have been expunged. How do I go about checking if they were? And if expunged, can that still be used to charge me with a second DUI offense?
Traffic offenses, including DUI, cannot be expunged in South Carolina. If you were not convicted - if it was dismissed,...
