Will my charge for driving on suspended get dismissed or at least reduced to a lesser charge?
I was pulled over and charged with driving on a suspended license. I have since then got my license fully reinstated with no restrictions and have my court case in 2 weeks.
There is no way to answer this question without more facts. What was your license status? If suspended, did you know...
My friend got a dui, was sentence to 90 day in jail all suspended except 8 days, he got weekend time.
When he registered at the jail he was told he has to take a drug test, he smokes marijuana and is now scared he will have to serve the remainder of the 90 days. If he fails the test only has 2 days so will fail test. The way I read the paper from the jail I took it he would just have to serve his 8 days in a row and not be eligible for the weekend program. His order from the court had no mention of drugs just said would not have or consume alcohol for 12 months and he has to take the program Asap. And the box for probation was not checked. So will he be in jail the 90 days or just the 8?
If he has to serve the time straight, rather than on weekends, he will generally serve half the time, 4 days (unless he...
Can i beat a show cause summons due to a clerical error?
I was convicted of a second DUI and sentenced to 180 days with 160 suspended, with the 20 days being mandatory. I decided to pull my time on weekends and when i registered for jail the captain told me that i'd be pulling 10 days, because it was a misdemeanor it was explained to me that i'd be pulling day for a day. I fulfilled my 10 days and have now been issued a show cause as to why i didn't pull the remaining 10. After contacting the jail, i've found out that the court did not put MANDATORY on the order for the jail. Do i have a case for dismissal because of this error on the courts part?
That's a great issue. Generally mandatory time means that you can't get "good time credit". But you did what was...
Can i beat a show cause due to a clerical error?
i was sentenced to a second DUI, the judge gave me 180 days with 160 suspended. when i registered for jail they told me to pull 10 days, because it was a misdemeanor i pulled day for day. ( i was doing weekends) i fullfilled my time and then got a show cause summons for not completing the 20 days from the court. the jail said they didn't put on the order that i pull any MANDATORY amount of time and that it was the courts job to do so. do i have a case? can it be dismissed due to their error?
You should see a local attorney to get more facts becasue this is a good question. My first reaction is you don't get...
I don't know what to do. I was arrested for a DUI Friday night. This is my first offense.
Was stopped in a restaurant parking lot and arrested for dui. I don't even remember starting the car up. I went outside to have another cigarette and got one from the car. Next thing I know I'm scared and confused and doing the count backward test. I don't know how I can afford all this. All my money goes to rent and bills. I think I've done too much looking up online and have made myself too worked up. I can't loose time at work and would like to keep my license, even if restricted. I don't drink much anymore and haven't since New Year's Eve. I don't know what I'm going to do.
If you did not engage any electronic or mechanical device in your car then you were not operating and it is not a dui....
Can I get a DWI in a hotel parking lot.
I had driven for about 13 hours to get to Salem Virginia for a shut down job. I decided to have a few drinks while I sat in my vehicle in the hotel parking lot so I could smoke since the hotel is 100% smoke free. It was cold that night so I had the vehicle running using the heater and I feel asleep. The police came through the parking lot and woke me up and saw the empty beers and asked me to submit to a field sobriety test which I refused because I thought I was on private property and had permission to drink in the parking lot from the hotel management. So I was arrested and charged with DWI.
Yes. Stay off the internet and stop posting evidence against yourself. Get a DUI attorney ASAP.
Does extra time in jail count toward a violation?
I was sentenced to 5 years and decided to take a program. I officially did 21 months then was resentenced to 5 days. Would the other time I did count for a violation?
In my experience, credit for serving jail time won't go towards credit for a probation violation until after a...
