I was recently pulled over for failure to maintain lane, and then arrested for DUI with a 0.085 by the road, and a 0.081 at the station. I had had two beers over a three hours period, and felt perfectly capable of driving. Unfortunately, I hadn't eaten since noon that day (this took place at 2:16 AM), thus my body wasn't processing the alcohol the way I would normally expect it to. I passed all the FS tests, and after having taken the breathalizer the first time, the officer refused to tell me the results until much later in the evening (I don't know if they're supposed to or not). What chance do I have of beating this charge, and how should I go about things from here?
You need to hire a qualified DUI lawyer, and hire one quickly. You have limited time to make sure that your driving...
I received a DUI in georgia but I live in DC. I plead nolo contendere, which is essentially a guilty plea. However, in my paperwork from my lawyer it stated "I hereby authorize my attorney to enter a plea of nolo contendere/guilty on my behalf and in my absence to all charges related to the above styled matter and sign any and all necessary document regarding same to an ordinance which will not report on my criminal history." what does this mean? I also paid online for a background check on myself and nothing came up. Please advise.
Sounds like your lawyer did a "plea in absentia" which means he/she enters a guilty plea on your behalf so that you don'...

I want to no if I can lower the debt or a statue of limitation on it I need help mother is Sickly
I don't know what you're asking, but DUI is a permanent charge on your record.
I had a DUI incident a few months ago. The DUI was dismissed, but my license was never given back to me. Does the officer hold on to it? Is it just better to buy a new one? The case is over and I checked the status of my license and it is valid. It would make me feel more comfortable to know what he may have done with it, or know if he can do something with it.
Go to the DDS and get a new one. He no longer has the license. Depending on the circumstances, you may or may not...
I am a 60 year old woman who needs to have my license reinstated but can not afford the expense. I live with my daughter who is a single parent of 2 children. She works everyday and has a lot of running around her own self with her children and errands she has to do. After my 2nd DUI 08/18/2011 I completed the Risk Reduction Class... Did the clinical treatment class... Did my court ordered time for community service...and do not have any other traffic violations. I have waited over 4 years to try and reinstate my license just to find out I have to do all of this again. How can I get these expenses wavered?
It may not be possible. Otherwise, as I'm sure you'll understand, there would be no cost to DUI and folks would...
I've been a U.S. Permanent Resident since 1992. I'm married to a U.S. Citizen and we have 2 girls, 1 1/2, and 4 1/2. I have always worked and paid my taxes. I have 3 DUI. 2001, 2009, 2015. I'm waiting to go to court for last one and already have a criminal lawer. What am I facing as far as my green card goes? It expires in 2023. If I'm found guilty for this third dui will I be put in deportation process? Can I still travel outside the country without getting detained on the way back? I went to see a immigration lawer in Jonesboro and he told me I have nothing to worry about as far as renewing my green card but I'm still a little paranoid, scared. Is he right? Please help, I'm losing a lot of sleep over this. I'm a good parent and husband just made bad decisions in my life.
DUIs are not considered crimes of moral turpitude so your green card will not be affected. Concentrate on solving your...
My C D L's were revoked under a nolo plea that I feel that I was forced to enter.
You don't provide enough information to give an answer. You should gather ALL your paperwork, charges, please, CDL,...
