Can I get a 2nd DUI felony conviction expunged in OK that occurred >10yrs ago?
I have a felony conviction for 2nd DUI (no accidents or injury involved in arrest) >10 yrs ago, no charges since that felony conviction. 18 years ago (age 19) I got two DUI's 6 mths apart and received a misdemeanor conviction with 2yr probation. The 2 DUI's where lumped together for the charge. 3 yrs later (age 22) I got another DUI and was charged with 2nd DUI felony. I have kept a clean record since with only minor tickets. I am now 37, married with kids, and would like to have the felony removed from my record and put it in my past for good. What is the process? How long will it take? How much will it cost? Is it possible??
This would require a pardon from the office of the governor. The current occupant of that office isn't very inclined...
Will my insurance be effected?
My dui was reduced in court but dps is still making me do the modified liscens. Would this mean even though I'm not convicted of the dui it will still go against me on my driving record?
Yes. If you have a modified license that means that your license has been suspended administratively by DPS. The only...
DPS is having a hearing for my liscens a year after DUI?
Last year I revived a DUI and after competing the court requirements the DUI was reduced to speeding 25 over. I did send off that form to request a hearing within the 15 days but when my 30 day temp license was about to expired I called the DPs and they said my license isn't going to be suspended and that I could get a copy made at the tag agency which I did. I never heard back from them until I received a letter in the mail the other day saying I have 30 days to send 175 along with the request for a modified liscens. I understand the court and the DPs are separate but why would they allow me to get another liscens just to suspend it a year later? Also what happens with the hearing? Will they more then likely not suspend me since it was reduced?
Good question. I'm not sure how DPS can tell you one thing and then, in reliance upon it, you trust them. I am not...
Why do i have to have an ignition interlock device installed for all first offense charges?
This is my 1st offense, it has been dismissed with prejudice and expunged after two years of being deferred & paying restitution. Count 1: driving under the influence of alcohol, Count 2: possession of controlled drug (marijuana), Count 3: possession of paraphernalia, Count 4: driving without a driver's license, Count 6: Fail to stop and yield at flashing red light, Count 7: Improper passing-on right. I have not had any alcohol or marijuana since then. I have learned my lesson and after paying nearly $8,000.00, I can't afford the cost of a car and the ignition interlock device. I was 20 when this happened. I am 23 now.
Your driver's license revocation is a separate matter from your criminal case. On all DUI charges, the Oklahoma...
How hard is it to win a dps administration hearing for licens suspension?
My dui case was reduced following court requirements now 1 year later the dps is trying to suspend my licens. I called the dps and and was told the officer didn't send in a affidavit so they said my licens wasn't suspended. After I completed dui classes and finished my court stuff I called the dps back and they said to send in my certificates of completion for my classes and I was good to go. Now a year later they are scheduling a hearing for my license suspension. Since I didn't get convicted for the dui why would they be able to suspend my license. Plus they claimed they never received a affidavit?
I am not licensed to practice law in Oklahoma, so out of respect for any experienced DUI attorney licensed in Oklahoma...
If my ex is on a felony probation and got arrested for a dui recently, can he still go back to jail? How likely is it?
My ex was convicted of kidnapping, assault and battery, and interference with an emergency call. He was sentenced to five years but it was suspended all but three months in jail. That was two and a half years ago. Hes been on probation since. He was arrested and charged with a dui and a few other traffic violations this march and just this past month got a suspended sentence of a year all but ten days in avalon for it. Theres been a motion to revoke for some time and a bond set for 30000. What is the likelyhood of him going back to jail? What should i expect from the hearing come this wed? Hes been out of avalon for two days now.
He needs to hire an attorney immediately. Applications to Revoke are serious matters and although no one can assign a...
I was pulled over for suspended drivers license and DUI. The arresting officer didn't even read me my rights.
I was pulled over for suspended drivers license and DUI. The arresting officer didn't even read me my rights. I have been fighting this case since 2013. The arresting officer was placed on the stand and questioned by my pro bono attorney. He stated that he didn't read me my rights and nor did he have a video cam etc. My attorney stated that I could have actually gotten back in my car and drove off. My attorney asked for the case to be dismissed, but the judge said no since I had a DUI 10 years ago in Texas. This case is in Oklahoma by the way. I was approved for a court appointed attorney 4 times now but they keep saying I didn't fill the paperwork out correctly. I think they are just stringing me along for court cost. Is there anything I can do? I lost my job due to this so I'm currently unemployed. Thank you in advance.
A cop basically never has to read someone their rights unless they are in custody and being asked questioms that can...
