Can someone please help me get my license and all my money back from these bogus charges
This still contains to the first situation about the DUI case I got screwed over on. If someone would please contact me or give me a contact number I can give a better statement of my situation. I appealed DMV case, went to court at DMV, officer shows up at hearing lying and when I called him on it he jumped up out of his chair and said, im done here. Through his folder on the table and walked out of the court room and left in his patrol car. We was only about 10-15 minutes into the hearing when he went storming out threatening me at the same time and they didnt even throw it out over his actions they found me guilty 3 months later and took my license. Now after going through everything they ask me to do I violated their program because I drove a frinds car 1/2 a mile into town to help out another friend and got pulled over and arrested for not having the interlock device in that vehichle. If judge Jenkins from the Preston County WV court house is correct I shouldnt have been put on yhe program to begain with because the DMV illegally revoked my license in the first place because I represented myself in their court room instead of hiring a lawyer. Please help me and be rewarded

I received an underage, Is there an expungement process for this? And what else do I need to do to prepare for my court summon?
I am an 18 year old Maryland resident who was visiting a friend in West Virginia when I received an "underage consumption of alcohol". I have a municipal court summon and am wondering whether if this will affect my record and if so is there an expungement process? And also what are the possible consequences I face?
If you plead guilty or no contest to public intox in WV, it will remain on your record and is not eligible to be expunged.
Can I fight a DUI Suspension that was not turned in as a DUI. The charge was Driving on a suspended 1st offense.
I was stopped and charged with Driving on a Suspended 2nd offences in April of 2015. In August I had a hearing and the charges were dropped to Driving on a Suspended 1st offense. Now three months later, I get a notice from the West Virginia DMV stating that my license will be suspended for 1 year for DUI. While my BAC was .05 which is under the legal BAC of .08 in West Virginia there was not charge for DUI even discussed. I have talked with the arresting officer who also agreed that there was no DUI charge and that it was only driving on a suspended 1st offense that was turned in to the DMV. I attempted to explain to her that the charge was not DUI but she would not listen. I moved to Orlando Florida just after the hearing. I am just at a loss as to what I can do.
Generally speaking, DMV and court aren't the same, that's why you can be charged in one and not the other, for most...
Possibility of underage consumption charge being dropped.
Over the weekend I was stopped by an officer and given an underage consumption ticket with a court date on March 17th. The officer said to me personally "If you just show up to the court date the charge will be dropped". There was a friend with me when he said this. I am turning 21 on March 1st and he said it will be an early birthday present. Do you think he was saying that just to get me to show up to court or is there an actual possibility that the charge can be dropped.
You should hire an attorney to represent you on this charge
Do I need a traffic attorney/DUI attorney?
I am required to drive an interlock equipped only vehicle based on a WV DUI sentence. I was pulled over for speeding in Michigan for 5mph over in a rental car, but was not ticketed for driving without interlock as my virginia drivers license does not show any restriction. My question is what to expect from WV, I.e. Will they find out that I was driving a non interlock vehicle despite not being ticketed for that? When WV runs a check at the completion of my interlock program and sees I had a speeding ticket, how deep will they look? Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.
No one can tell you if anything will come of this. All depends if the prosecutor becomes aware of the speeding ticket...
DUI first timer program/out of state
A received a DUI a few months back in Morgantown WV, and was placed in the first timers program, which requires me to get an interlock placed in my car and take AA classes. I am currently living in NJ. How do I got about finding the classes in my state? What are the requirements, and can the classes be taken online? Thank you in advanced!
You can find local AA classes online by AA.org. My understanding of AA is that it is more of a meeting, and not really...
It took 4 hard and soft exhales to get a BAC on his handheld. Is it possible to read high due to same straw 4 times?
Was asked to blow 4 times into the same straw. Back to back exhales even extremely heavy and soft until a reading. Could the accumulation of alcohol vapor trap in the straw and once read after the 4th exhale read high. Why didn't they change the straw after each unsuccessful test. Done at intake for DIP.
Where you driving a vehicle? Were you arrested for DUI? You don't provide a lot of information. You're question is for...
