Hi, hopefully someone could help me. This past sat night after i got off work from a extremely busy and long shift at 3:15 am i took a couple shots of jameson to relax. Im a 100 pound female and had not consumed any food within 9 hrs. I left work about 5 min after that and got pulled over for speeding (65 in a 35). Cop asked me if i was drinking and i said yes a couple shots when i got off work at 315. I did the 3 field sobriety tests, failed the eye test and havent found out how i did on the other two yet. However, i blew in the preliminary breathalyzer (thought i had too) and blew a,.177 on scene, was arrested for ovi..refused the test at the station. Got a laywer pled not guilty at court. However, i.have acid reflux, anxiety, eye strain, and my eyes have trouble focusing. Chance?
Your attorney will be able to explain your chances to you. You need to trust his/her advice. You did the right thing by...
They charged the other person he was with open container because they were both in the drivers seat, but he has a couple prior dui's so I am guess this is why, He hired an attorney who is charging him $10,000. to represent him but just told him the other day he will not be defending him since he still owes $5000.00 is this legal to do? The guy has paid him half but now will not represent him. He is doing the best he can with payments but it is hard coming up with that kind of money. Can anyone please lend me some advice.
It depends on the circumstances. If the attorney has filed a notice of appearance on the case, he must file a motion...
I was convicted of petty theft. I was 18 at the time. I was convicted of DUI at 19. Can I get theft expunged?
I just read about Ohio SB 337, does this apply to me? I know I can't get the DUI expunged, but I would like to have the theft charged sealed.
No. The OVI makes it so you are not eligible at all for expungement.
I was convicted of a OVI on sept of 2010... I was placed on probation for a year with a no drinking claus....
Some people have complained to my PO that they have seen me drinking??? I have been charged with a PO violation on the accusations.... Dont they have to prove I was drinking Alcohol not just seen in a bar or Restuaraunt???
Are you sure that you have a Probation Violation Hearing on just the allegations? Generally, a probation officer is...
Hi, I have sort of a technical legal question about probation. A couple of months ago, I was arrested for an OVI. I pleaded down to underage consumption, and was placed on probation, which I am still on. I am getting my background checked for a job, and I told them that I have an underage consumption on my record. They said it will be fine as long as nothing is pending. I said nothing was, because I have been to court and plead guilty. Now, I'm thinking the case might still be considered pending since I am still on probation. What is the technical state of my case? Is it still pending, or will it show up as closed on a background check? Also, out of curiosity, will the background check show that I was arrested for OVI, or just show the charge I was convicted of? Thank you.
Case is no longer pending. Would expect that the court record would show the original charge filed and the disposition.

First of, thank you for answering my question. Here is my situation. I came to US in 1993. Being dumb, I managed to have 3 DUIs from 2000 to 2008. I was convicted on all 3. Since they were apart some time from each other, they are not counted as felony. I know the mistakes I made and paid for them dearly. I have been sober and have clean record since 2008. Not even a parking ticket. I have professional job and been in my career for past 15 years. My green card expires in 2013 which will put me right at 5 years of "good moral character". My question is: 1. Is there even a remote chance for me to obtaining US Citizenship if I wait, let's say 4 years from the date of last DUI. 2. Is it possible for me to have my Permanent Resident status revoked if I decide to renew my green card instead?
As you already noticed, your three convictions will impact your "good moral character" finding. You should probably not...
