my ua is sent to a lab for screening. I was just wondering if they will do a 12 panel drug test. I do NOT do any illegal drugs, just wondering if my prescribed medication would show up or not. It is klonopine and tramadol. I dont want this to be used against me during my divorce trial.
One is a benzodiazepine, the other an opioid. Both of those classes are commonly tested. As long as you have valid...
I was arrested for a DUII earlier this year and plead for diversion, I was deemed eligible for diversion and am about half way done with the mandatory classes; I attempted to purchase a firearm earlier today and was told that the oregon state police delayed my background check. The store asked if I had any previous record and I said I was arrested for a DUI, the clerk said that according to ORS 137.540 I might be under probation under my diversion agreement and in violation of my probation by owning firearms. I checked the paperwork I recieved from the Jackson County courts and did not see anything in regards to ORS 137.540, and the only mention of firearms was in regards to DV cases; am I violating the conditions of diversion by purchasing or owning a firearm?
Doesn't sound like it. First of all, you have not purchased a firearm yet. Your application is probably just delayed...

My first arrest for DUI was dropped by DMV for lack of evidence. It was not dropped by the DA. One week later I was arrested for another DUI. This one the DMV suspended my license for. The DA has now charged me with two DUIs, my trial is in January. Could I still be eligible for diversion because these will be tried together?
With two pending DUII's it makes the possibility of entering diversion on one of them more difficult, but not...

Just paid off DUI fines in AZ (dui metabolite, weed) Now they are sending me a revoke packet? Investigation packet? I completed the MADD classes and the TASC program from that case years ago, The case is from 2005. I now live in another state and am in need of my license how do obtain the docs they need if I dont live there? Doesnt the court get notified once someone has completed a court ordered program?
Not always. You will have to contact the provider and hope they kept better records than you did. Hope that's helpful
I got charged with a duii after an atl was put out on my car. My niece was driving but the person who called assumed i was driving when i stopped in at his house. He knows better now. The police arrived at my house 20 minutes after my niece dropped me off. They pulled me off the porch while i was smoking a cig. He asked me if i had drank and i said no. He asked if i was driving and i said no my niece brought me home and walked home. He then asked if i would take a field sobriety test. I stated i wasnt driving so i dont know why its necesary. He volunteered me for the field sobriety test. the police report states after asking me twice i consented. I did not. I have my driver and the person who called as witnesses for trial but this is a felony duii and jurys scare me. Any opinions
