What do I have to do to expunge a dui and drunk in Public that happen in October 2011?
I will like to apply to jobs or the military without having to give a expiation for a mistake that I made 5 years ago. I understand that it was a serious traffic violation but I'm turning 24 and have outgrown those mistakes and would like to move on with my life.
There is nothing you may do to expunge these convictions. They will remain on your record forever unless you were to...
I am about to apply for my full license restoration, but I think I failed the ASAP drug test
I have had DUI`s in the past. They were all drinking related and no convictions were ever drug related. I would also mention that I have NO JAILTIME LEFT. So, after 3 years of successful probation period, I was granted a restricted license at the beginning of this year. Even though, I had completed all my programs, the judge still asked me to register with ASAP until my license is restored. I complied with the program and now I have to apply for a full restoration. However, I was called in the ASAP office as the original case in charge left. The new officer did my screening again. The result have not come in yet, but I know that most likely I will fail the drug test since I used some recently. I asked the officer as to what was the test is for, she said that they will do a final check on drugs & alcohol before they send the letter out to the court for restoration. I asked her if I fail the drug test and pass the alcohol test, what will be the outcome. She said that she will write whatever the results come in the report and then it is completely up to the judge as to if he wants you to have full license or not. What should I expect at the court?
Dear Manassas - I think that you know the answer, but since you asked - it is likely that the judge denies your...
Can I successfully press charges against a drunk driver who rear ended my vehicle and assaulted me on the scene?
I was rear-ended by a drunk driver a few nights ago. Upon calling 911 and explaining the scene as I was outside of my car, the driver was about to flee the scene. I then began describing her tag to the operator when she began to get angry with me. She lunged for phone once and I told her to move repeatedly. She backed away a little bit and as soon as I made another attempt to get her tag number, that's when she lunged towards me again and it ended up becoming a scuffle, that was broken up by people who drove by and saw us on the ground and police showed up a minute after. On top of that there was another woman who was involved (the impact caused me to bump into her rear bumper) and she tried to make a claim that it was domestic violence, which was ridiculous cause. When police arrived and assessed the scene the drunk driver ended up being arrested and charged for a third DUI. On the scene paramedics came and I told them I had pain in my left hand. Three days later I found out that I had a fractured bone in my hand and now I'm in a splint for a month. I have a court date scheduled and I'm in the process of getting the transcript to the call that I made to 911 that night.
You have a right to report the matter to police, and they will decide whether or not they wished to press formal charges.
I have an interlock installed, why I am getting the camera installed?
I've had my interlock device installed in my car for almost 6 months with no violations or missed tests. I received a call from the interlock company that my calibration appt has been changed due to camera installation. Why after all this time am I getting it now? I received a letter from my asap office that my compliance period is over soon.
The law now requires cameras in interlock devices.
Will I serve my full 10 days in jail?
I was convicted of DWI and driving on a suspended. Before I was able to receive my restricted license I got another driving on a suspended. My lawyer was able to get me 30 days. 20 suspended. So 10 days. I wasn't arrested for the 2nd driving on a suspended. I am curious if I have the possibility of being released early so I can miss less work.
This is an inquiry that should be directed to your attorney. Unless there is a mandatory minimum as part of the...
What should I do and what are the possible defense and possible punishment.
Interlock for first time DUi in Virginia. I was driving home today from work and was able to pass the first test with interlock device. About 15 to 20 min later I was told to do the rolling retest. I was eating some trail mix and it locked me out after the retest. It locked me out for 5 min. After the 5 min I blew and after blowing the chord fell out and said communication error. After putting chord back in the device the test was passed within the 5 to 15 min test window that exists. No BAC at all. But it came up with an error code. I have not drank in 3 plus months. Been taking ETG piss tests weekly and have passed them all as well. I am concerned that I might get an interlock/probation violation. Have not received one yet. Had one 5 months ago. This would be my second if they count it. I have been told if you pass within 5 to 15 min window it's not considered a violation.
You should get in touch with your lawyer, because any problem with these devices puts you at risk of a violation...
