How long in Maine does it take the DMV to notify you of suspended license after oui arrest?
I was arrested almost three weeks ago for an oui. I was taken to the jail where I blew a .16 and then wasn't able to be bailed out until the next day. The arresting officer gave me a summons with a court date for this Monday. I have yet to hear anything from the DMV about my license being suspended. I have called and checked numerous times to check my status and as of today it is active with no pending suspensions. I am nervous because I know you only have 10 days to request an administrative hearing, but I'm not sure if its from 10 days after my arrest, or when I receive the suspension notification. If it's the former then I guess I'm not sure why my license would still be active. I do not have money for a private attorney and plan on asking for a court appointed one. Any thoughts?
While the law enforcement officer is suppose to file his report with the Secretary of State within 10 days, there is no...
Does my daughter need to get a lawyer because a drunk driver caused a bad accident?
My daughter, 43, was hit head on by a repeat offender drunk driver who was arrested at the scene. Both cars were totalled. She was shaken up, went to the ER, and seems OK. However, he was uninsured. We found out today that she has to pay for her rental car as she doesn't have rental insurance.. I am afraid that she will end up with too little money from her insurance to buy a suitable replacement car. She is a single parent of 2 girls and barely makes ends meet. I am nervous about suggesting a lawyer. How would she pay and we know the driver has nothing to go after.
She should consult with a personal injury attorney in ME. Most initial consultations are free and attorneys will...
If my son is sentenced to jail. Does he have time to get his affairs in order
+3rd offence driving without a license. He got pulled over and is in jail,. I (MOM) would like to work with him regarding his living, financial etc. And can only do it with him available. I would ask for 1 long weekend.
If the charge indeed is operating without a license, if convicted any jail sentence will likely be relatively short....
Police license plate scanners and temporary plates
I read a question previously posted on this website regarding this same topic, however the answer wasn't exactly what I was looking for. It's not an issue an longer, but a few months ago my license was suspend and at the time my wife and I were actually using my mothers new car, which still had it's temporary plates on it. I never took the chance and drove it, at least until I reactivated my license, but the discussion I've been having with me wife ever since, is that technically, I could have driven the car with considerably less risk of being noticed a by police plate scanner, my reason being that; when driving our own car with it's legitimate permanent plates is scanned by a passing patrol car, it would immediately display to the officer all our information connected with that plate number, including that one of the registered owners, (me) had a suspended license. My argument was, that although the scanner may be able to read a temporary plate it would most likely not return information specific to me, but instead other information; perhaps related to the dealership and the date of issue, and such. Essentially, what information, if any, does a scanner return on a temp plate?
Do an internet search to learn more about the capabilities of these relatively new scanners.

If a liquor or convenience store scans your license when you buy alcohol can that information be seen by police?
I am on deferred disposition for a DUI than prohibits me from drinking or buying alcohol. I recently went to dinner at a friends parents house and bought a bottle of wine to bring without thinking because I wasn't personally planning on drinking. I am almost a year sober and my sentence is almost up so I'm wondering if they will see this when I go back to court.
It is possible, but unlikely. The information is not uploaded to a central governmental computer if that is your...
