2012 I was acquitted of dwi charges, before the criminal case, the civil courts found the accusation enough to revoke driving.
is this right?, after the state could not prove their accusation they had no proof of me driving at all, I believed my driving status should have been restored to the condition it was in before this accusation was made against me. This accusation is what the civil courts used to base their decision on to revoke my privilege to drive in Vermont. Why would I or anyone for that matter pay a penalty for a crime they did not commit. Am I missing something ??.... help!!!.
There was a lower burden of proof for the civil case involving your license. But, a not guilty verdict normally trumps...
In 2012 I was tried for DWI in Burlington VT. and was found not guilty, Why am I being forced to take Vermont's CRASH PROGRAM ..
I was standing in the parking lot of a hotel waiting for the owner of the car when the police arrived they walked into the building so I asked one of the officers still outside what was going on, oh!, some sort of disturbance!. just then the other officers came out of the hotel and informed me that I was being processed for DWI, I was not pulled over, viewed by anyone and certainly not any of the police officers there, was I seen driving, operating, or in control of a car or any type of motor vehicle that entire night. So how could this happen?, what do I do now.? What are my options?, do I even have any options?!.
Obviously, you floated the above stated defenses at trial and were not believed. So at this point your protests are...
Can my husband be charged with dui civil and criminal?
So my husband got arrested for dui in our dooryard. Our next door neighnor said they say him driving while being intoxicated so she called the cops. They showed up and the husband of the next door nieghbor walked down and punched my husband in the face in our yard. . The cop said to my husband that he was being arrested for dui. They brought him to the hospital to get his nose checked out then they brought him to the police station to do a breathalizer. Of course he blew numbers cause we were having drinks at our house. So now because the neigbor said they saw him and he blew numbers there charging him when he never was on the motorcycle. Our next door neighbor hates my husband for past issues. The cop also felt the pipes on bike and the werent even hot plus i had the key.
You have a good defense and need to preserve the statements and observations quickly. Consult a local, experienced...

Caught underage drinking but no citation given -- what next?
So I was at a high school graduation party and was caught drinking by the police. I gave them my name and date of birth and took a breathalyzer test (blew a 0.079). The officers said that I could go through the court diversion process and they would give me paperwork before I left. They stayed with me until my ride came, but they never gave me any paperwork or said what they were going to do with me. Now I'm wondering what to do next; should I do nothing and wait or is there a way to find out if I have a citation/am in trouble? Thanks
If the officer purposely did not give you paperwork, it might be because he forgot but is still filing it with the...
Visiting VT from CA with a Non-Updated DUI License
I am visiting some family in Vermont. The story is I got a DUI a year ago. Completed all court and DMV requirements to be reinstated. When it came time to remove the interlock, I went to the DMV to update my license. Well they botched it and sent me the restricted license. The CA DMV appointments are so backed up, I am months away from changing this, but was informed by the DMV that it is not a problem because my updated status is in the National Registry. In fact I've been pulled over once in CA during this period and the officer confirmed I am okay to drive. Now my question is, can I drive in Vermont? Do officers have access to the national registry?
I am not licensed to practice in Vermont, so out of respect for any local experienced attorney from Vermont, refer to...
Can Bob claim he was voluntary intoxicated if he went to court or would he be charged with disorderly conduct?
Bob and Jon are walking home from a hard night of partying at a local drinking establishment. bob is very intoxicated, swaying as he walks, and Jon isn't much better off. As they walk home, they pass Mike coming the other way- Mike is a gamer and wears gamer association t-shirts. Bob and Jon both find this entertaining, and Bob begins openly mocking Mike about his t-shirt. Mike takes offense to this, shouts at the two to leave him alone and attempts to walk past the two with his hands in his pockets. Jon shouts "hit him, Bob" and Bob strikes Mike in the nose with a closed fist, breaking Mike nose. Bob and Jon stand there congratulating each other drunkenly.
Bob is guilty of breaking a guy's nose. The fact that he drank before striking Mike does not excuse him from the act,...
