Can AZ impose conditions on getting a license in AR, 7 years after a single DUI conviction?
My daughter got her only DUI at age 19 or 20 in Az. She paid all damages, fines, & probation costs.. She is now 27, has been sober a year, has a great job and lives in AR. She has a slight disability that makes following a series of lengthy steps overwhelmingly difficult. There are numerous hoops to jump through.

My 21 yr old son was arrested in Gulf Shores, Alabama during a Music Festival for Public Intoxication. Do we need a lawyer?
No breathalyzer was administered , he was not read his rights and denied a phone call. He was told to sit down and was arrested when he stood up ask a question. Fines and fees are $500.

It is really worth hiring a criminal lawyer to represent him . It sounds like there are defenses and I'm afraid this...

I was sentenced to 60 days in jail for DWI 1. Now I am pregnant. What are my chances of requesting house arrest in lieu?
I have no priors, was sentenced to do 60 days within 120. I'm dumb apparently and thought it meant so long as I turned in by the end of 120 days I was following my orders. When I went to turn myself in I was refused at intake due to the officer not knowing "what to do with me"? I am pregnant for the 1st time and it is proving to be a very difficult pregnancy and I'm afraid to go through any complications that may affect my baby while incarcerated. Is there any chance of requesting house arrest in place of imposed sentence?
You need to talk to your lawyer that represented you in the DWI in the first place and see if the Court will modify the...
