Metaline Falls Law

License suspension after being cited for DUI, but prior to being convicted of the offense.
i was cited for a dui, in washington state, and am pending trial on this issue. my bac was .092. the legal limit here is .08. My question is, how can the Department of licensing suspend my driving privileges for a set period of time, prior to finding me guilty? I know that when i sign my drivers license i am agreeing to abide by all the laws of Washington State, as well as agree to submit to a field sobriety test at any time the officer deems probable cause to submit such test. Here's the catch, when i signed for my drivers license , this rule was not in effect. Innocent until proven guilty is the way it used to be. This new way of doing things(suspending ones driving privileges upon arrest, but prior to being found guilty seems like its violating my right to due process of the law.) i followed the officers requests and cooperated fully. I have no prior dui convictions and there was no accident involved. I was pulled over for speeding originally. When the Department of licensing decided to bring this rule or law into effect, it is something i agree to upon signing my license, correct?
The reason why the DOL can suspend a person license due to an administrative suspension is because your right to drive...
Do police have to impound your vehicle?
Was arrested and released right away. They impounded my vehicle even after I told them my wife or son could be there in 5 minutes to get it. And it was parked legally, where it was. The tow bill was over $400 for towing it 2 blocks!
Yes, the police must act and do not need to accept your word that other arrangements might be made. Consider how many...
Can I cancel a police statement I've made when drunk?
I made a police statement whilst drunk and do not remember the incident at all. I tried to retract my statement the following day but it was too late. Also, I have been informed that the police will not take a statement from somebody drunk but I can assure you I was!! I remember the police man saying his mum got beaten up by his father and he hated men who disrespectful women so I think he may have taken the statement because of his personal beliefs and situations but now I am here and do not remember nothing from the incident or the statement I made
You are responsible for whatever you report to the police. The report can be amended to note your retraction, at the...
Plead guilty to reckless endangerment after being arrested for DUI
After pleading guilty, I was sentenced to a year in jail suspended and 2 years probation- i take weekly UA's and every one of them has come back as diluted. I called my doctor to find out what this meant and what causes it - he told me that being diabetic, its not uncommon to have this happen. Anyway, I had a show cause hearing where they revoked my being out on my own recognances, and gave me a $1000 bond. IF I have already been sentenced, then how is it that I can get a bond? and I thought if you violated probation, no money in the world could get you out rather you served the time set at the probation violation show cause hearing?
You should contact an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of Washington to help you with this case. From...
Student Visa with DUI
Hi , Approximately 10 years ago I was convicted of DUI in the UK. I am a student at university and I have been offered the chance to study in the US. My question relates to whether or not I would be ineligable for a student visa, I do not have other criminal activities on my record. I was charged with failure to supply a specimen. Thanks in advance for your input.
You should go over the DS visa application form with an experienced immigration attorney, who is U.S. licensed and...
Appealing a DUI
I am now in the third year of an appeal for a DUI. This occurred in a city so it is a Municipal charge. The city did not file their response late (a month after our reply was due) so it once again delayed the case. Given this and the quality of the brief (11 pages) and their utter disinterest in the case what are the possible scenarios of this moving forward. Yes I have an Attorney and I have already spoken to them.. so this is a second opinion matter. The Judge could rule to remand the case back to trial.. in that case the City has again up to 2 years to refile the case... and given what transpired they could ostensibly do that putting the case from 2012 being tried in 2018 or 2019 depending on when the Judge's decision occurs? Yes or No? Then the city will retry a 6 year old DUI? They would and why? The case appeal centers on two issues.. the blood evidence taken w/out warrant and with McNeely the City refused that case as relevant, the second was they did not allow my defense to proceed.. they did not give us blood to sample at an independent lab so as a result I had no way of proving an alternate theory. The case is very complicated.. VERY complicated..
I do not give second opinion on this site. You have counsel. If you need a second opinion consult with another.
Can I sue my employer for demoting me as a result of a DUI?
I have a pending DUI and my position requires me to drive 90% of the time. I am a first time offender and even if convicted, I will retain my driving privileges with the use of an ignition interlock device (according to my attorney). Historically my employer has demoted others in this situation into roles that pay less and are stationary, resulting in a large pay decrease. I would like to know if this is legal, considering I would still be able to perform the responsibilities my position requires, no matter what the outcome. I have even been denied the opportunity for lateral moves that are stationary and do not require driving as a primary responsibility. While they do pay for my mileage, I pay for my gas, insurance and vehicle payment. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Being arrested for a DUI makes you a liability for your employer. The fact your employer has demoted others, makes...
