My son has 2 dui from 7 years ago. he wants to get a pharmacy technician certification , can he work as a pharmacy tech in NJ
The 2 DUI are 7 years old..all requirements, fees , rehab, community service were all satisfied at the time of the DUI. He had his CDL license reinstated after the year, but can not get a driving job so has worked in a warehouse. He wants to improve his career but I don't want him to spend more money on a PT certification if he is not able to be hired because of the DUI s. . Does the pharmacy technician position have the same problem that people wanting to be nurses have if the have DUI?
The "problem" comes from two places - the certifying agency and the employers. BOTH would have to get past this, and...
Charged with a DUI but my lawyer put in a stay on the case for an appeal - but the charges were still put through by the twp.
My fiance blew a 0.08 he was charged with DUI & fleeing the scene of an accident. We sat at trial until 1:30 AM the alcho test was thrown out and he was still charged. They gave him 9 months loss of lic. this was May 16th 2013. Our lawyer asked the judge for a stay in the case so we can appeal the judge agreed, well we still recieved all the charge papers, surcharges loss of licence etc but according to our lawyer the township wasnt allowed to put all that through yet because we had a STAY in the case pending the appeal. So now my fiance has had a loss of licence for 3 months and a risk of losing his job over something that the township was supposed to HOLD on charging him with because of the judge apprving a stay in the case, does this sound wrong??
Yes, if a stay was issued none of the penalties should have been imposed. You should speak with the lawyer who...
Is jail time mandatory for a 3rd DUI conviction?
I have a friend that was recently arrested for his 3rd DUI. The 1st offense was over 10 years from the 2nd. The 2nd and 3rd are within 4 years of each other. All were in the state of NJ. He was arrested for the 3rd while his license was still suspended from the 2nd. He has not gone to court yet for the 3rd offense. This time he can not afford a lawyer. Will there be a mandatory jail time for this 3rd offense? If so, is there any possibility that a lawyer can change that?
Short answer, yes. That he was suspended for the 2nd DWI when he was charged with the 3rd makes the situation worse.
Would I be eligible for unemployment if a DUI that's been pending for over a year just now goes through since new employment?
Ive had a pending DUI for over a year. Lost my old job but received employment since but I drive a company vehicle. I'm not sure on company policies with respect to this situation so I can't give any input there. But my general question is would I be eligible for unemployment since the DUI had no relevance to employment up until now? Also it hasn't officially gone through yet, if the DUI is generally a problem with unemployment in NJ, would it make more sense to attempt to get fired or laid off by some means? And if that's the case, how so?
You need to ask an attorney more familiar with the unemployment regs. If you are terminated for cause it may be a...
My son's father was arrested for a DUI twice within a three month period. What are his chances of having them both dismissed.
Both arrests were made in Burlington County NJ. The first in Delran and the second in Lumberton. He also has a current Felony charge for possession of a controlled substance (marijuana)
Dwis do not get dismissed easily. His only chance is to hire a lawyer. It also sounds like some drug counseling would...
Am I liable for a patron who got a dui if I didn't serve them? There is very little proof that the establishment over served him
I was on duty until 1030pm as a manager doing office duties but not the floor manager. Place closed at 1230am. I was off duty for over two hours prior to the dui. I saw the manager on duty take the keys from the intoxicated patron prior to my departure. They want to terminate me for negligence.
To properly answer your questions and address your concerns, the best way to handle this is with an in person...
How and why should I get an interlock device on my car during license suspension if I can't drive?
I got a second dui conviction and during sentencing the judge ordered I have an interlock device installed for one year during suspension and one year after restoration. I am not allowed to drive, so how do I get the device installed and monitored every 1- 2 months? This makes little sense to me. Why are they asking me to drive a car that I'm not allowed to drive? Will the NJ MVC enforce this or can I just wait until my suspension time is up and get the interlock then?
It makes sure that if you violate the sentence, you cannot violate it while you are also drunk. And because it is the...
