DUI in Duluth Municipal Court.
I was arrested for a DUI. The case is in Duluth municipal court. I worked out a deal with the solicitor. I finished all classes and all requirements. Finished my probation a month ago but still haven't heard from them regarding official disposition. Do I need to request that or is it mailed to me? And if i need to request it do i just show up in court and what is the the process? Thank you.
It's not clear if you were convicted, or if you participated in some type of pre-trial diversion program. If you were...
DUI less safe drugs and roadblocks
I was stopped at a roadblock shortly after smoking marijuana. I did have it in my possession and my blood was tested. I had also taken an unprescribed adderall previously that day. In my understanding, they must prove that I was a "less safe" driver because of the marijuana. How can this be done if I was stopped at a roadblock? Also, how will the adderall come into play (if at all)?
Most prosecutors will take the "any in your system" approach. But you are correct about less safe, it is difficult if...
Clearing a DUI warrant for a non domicile
Dear sirs I am an English national who was working in Georgia on an H1 B visa from 2001 to 2002. I was arrested for a DUI in 2001 and paid my fine and attended court. I thought that the matter was closed however I have taken a vacation in the USA twice in the last few years and every time I get stopped for an outstanding warrant. Is there any way I can get this charge removed? If it's not possible to have the charge removed would there be a chance of being denied entry to the USA by border control? As mentioned I get pulled and questioned by border guards but have been allowed entry but I would like to get this warrant closed out or removed if possible. I'm planning a honeymoon in Seattle this fall and would like to have this cleared before then if possible.
Usually a misdemeanor will not affect you because most states do not extradite misdemeanants. However, why would you...

I need to know the quickest way to get my $1500 back from an Atty I paid to represent me and he was a no show in court today?
I am stationed in Ga and this is also where this happened. I have made numerous calls to his (Atty's) office trying to find out what is going on with my case ( I was charged with DUI) several months ago. Today I had to appear in court for my Arrangment, the Atty nor anyone from his office showed up to represent me... I find this very unacceptable, as I have lost trust in this Atty and I need my money back from him asap, because I'm due back in court on May 8th and I need time to hire another Atty and he needs time to look over my case. Also, I am concern further because depending on the outcome of the ruling, My Career in the Army is dependent of the Judge's ruling... I'm thanking you so much for your advice in advance!
If you paid an attorney and he no-showed in court without being excused by the court and notifying you that is...
