Will my mother go to jail with a 3rd DUI
My mom recently got her third DUI. She got her first one back in 2008 or 2009 I think. She has been going to AA and has been making the steps to get in rehab. My question is, will she go to jail? She is 59 years old and I'm really worried. We don't even know what to plead at this point.
If she pleads guilty she will very likely do some time. However, every case is different, as is every judge and...
Victims impact panel - DUI
The court states they do not have record of my husband attending the victims impact panel. they state that he blew and was denied access to the meeting. My husband states that he attended the class but he has lost the receipt. He has done everything else - diversion classes / road crew / and paid all the fines. His probation will be up in spring -he is being told he has to go see the judge. he is afraid that he will be put in jail - he just started a new job. what will the judge do?? will he just schedule him for another class? thanks
Unless there is a way he can prove he was there, he may have to take the class again. He can also tell the judge the...
7 years ago I was arrested for DUI and I didn't do diversion. I just got pulled over for speeding and arrested. What to expect?
I received the DUI 7 years ago blowing a .19. I did all the judge ordered besides the diversion. The # they gave me to call for it never once got an answer or voicemail so I called the police station and they gave me a different # and that number didn't work either, so being a stupid 23 year old I said screw it and didn't pursue it further. Now 7 years later I got pulled over for speeding and was arrested for a warrant. What I was charged with was FTA, I never once got anything in the mail or anything and have been pulled over in that city since the DUI and nothing. Im not trying to pass the blame, I understand it was my poor choices that have got me here. I have nothing else on my record and am just curious what I should expect and an idea of the best case scenario as far as punishment.
First, FTA (Failure to Appear) as a crime requires that one KNOWINGLY fail to appear for a court date. If you didn't...

Question Regarding DUI after applying for DACA
A friend of mine made a horrible mistake and has a court date for a DUI. He already applied for DACA Prior to his DUI ticket. The DUI did not involve any injury or damage to property.He had a Prior DUI charge which was dismissed. Can he be deported when they begin to do the background check on his DACA? Should he seek consultation from his Previous Immigration attorney? I told him to contact a local DUI attorney to see if anything can be done regarding lowering his DUI charge if possible. Thank you.
DUI can be a problem when DACA is up for renewal. Talk to an immigration lawyer for review of the record.
Is it too late to ask for an appeal if my rights were violated?
In 2013 I wrecked my motorcycle going the speed limit. I damaged no property and was the only one involved as I was on a back country road. The county sheriff responded to the scene then the hospital where I was taken where the nurse printed out my BAC results and gave them to the deputy, which he later used a probable cause for a grand jury and issued a citation the next day. How could he use that in court when he had no warrant to obtain records? Why did the deputy go to the hospital and start asking questions? There was no cause to suspect a crime was committed. Reading up on my fourth amended rights I can't help but feel this was an unfair conviction. Any advice would be helpful, I've asked before about this, I fear I may have no options but if my rights were violated, I should... ?
You must file a notice of appeal within 30 days of a court's judgment if you want to appeal that judgment. Two years is...
Do policeman have the right to my health records without a warrant?
After wrecking my motorcycle on a back road (no one else involved) and causing no property damage whatsoever I was taken to the hospital where the county sheriff responded immediately after the accident. I was told my doctor told the sheriff about my BAC which the deputy came back for the next day and issued a DUII citation. Seems like I heard evidence obtained without a warrant cannot be used in court. Also, my liver was severely lacerated almost killing me. I needed several transfusions. I do know the BAC results must me completely accurate. MOST of all, why was the sheriff investigating the accident as if a crime was committed? I crashed, bike was towed, I went to the hospital, no property damage, no other injuries, so why go to the hospital to question me as tho it was a homicide or??
Why the Sherriff started an investigation I have no idea you'll have to ask the sherriff. You should retain an...
