DUI Diversion revocation
Graduate student- charged with first time DUI in 2014- no record prior. Entered into pre-trial diversion which I completed flawlessly, no failed U/A-Breathalyzer, no missed apts, my D/O concluded my case would be dismissed upon my last appt Dec 2016. In March 2016 I received a notice of revocation of my previously completed diversion. This was due to a police report nearly a year prior that named me in a group of over 18 individuals that were halted by police for being rowdy outside a bar. I was never on bar property. Infact this incident was well over 2000-ft from the bar and I had only showed up minutes before to pick up friends. After explaining to police they took my statement, license, and let me be the first to drive off with the friends I came to pick up (they ended up letting everyone go). My name was on police report, thus it flagged the prosecutor at end of diversion background check. After 18 months of prosecutor plea's my attorney has now set case for an evidentiary hearing. I do not live in the state anymore, and travel frequently as a consultant. I am not guilty, and do not want placed back on div/charged for DUI. If judge rules against, can I appeal? Thx
Yes, if the judge rules against you, you have the right to file an appeal within 30 days.
