How would I go about changing my status as a habitual traffic offender in IN?
Back in 2006 I got a dui. This happened again in 2014 and 2015. The attorney that represented me on the later 2 told me I would not be considered a habitual traffic offender, when he handled the latest 2 cases. However, the BMV now has me listed as a habitual traffic offender, and I can't get my license back until 2026. I was informed by my attorney that the 2006 charge would not be held against me. All of these are misdemeanors. My attorney said that in order for me to be considered a habitual that I would have to had committed 3 offenses within 5 years. Obviously, 2006 is more than 5 years ago. When I spoke with him about this on the phone today he wanted to charge me a consultation fee for what should have been handled when I paid for his representation in these cases. Any help on how I can remedy this situation would be greatly appreciated.
Go to the Courthouse and see if the recorded qualification of rights was wrong. If so, perhaps you can file a post-...
What do I do about my OWI charges in Indiana if I live in Florida?
I was arrested in August of 2014 for 4 charges driving while intoxicated, endangering a person, driving without a license and illegal consumption of an alcoholic beverage. I did not receive the Summons to appear in court and the criminal case detail shows "left on door" so they issued a bench warrant. I live in Florida now so what do I do and what are my options? Thanks!

I haven't recieved a court date for an owi I got arrested for 6 months ago. What do I do?
Last year I got arrested for an owi. The cop made me take a field sobriety test. The cop then took me in for a blood test and kept me in jail untill morning. I didn't make bail but the cop released me and kept my license. I had to sign a paper saying I would appear in court. It's been six months since then and I haven't heard anything from the county clerk or anything. This is my first offense and it was a class c misdemeanor.
The State has 2 years to file charges. I am not sure the reason for the delay, but I do not think I would yet inquire....

If I turn myself in for a failure to appear warrant on a DWI charge, what happens? How long do I have to stay in jail?
This is my first charge and I failed to appear court for the DWI charge and now have a warrant due to that. I was told if I turn myself into the court, I would stay a few hours, let go and have to show up at court another time. Is this true? Or do I have to be bailed out to leave?
I think the information you received is fairly accurate. However, it's not guaranteed. Before showing up in court by...

Can I sue a bar in Indiana that overserved me, in turn causing me to wreck into a tree and get charged with O.W.I above 0.15%
I spent the evening at one bar that i have frequented in Indiana and had several drinks. The bartender was my "friend" (even outside of her work) I had asked her to not let me leave if i seemed drunk and to call someone for me. She said ok that's not a problem. Well needless to say she did not do that and kept serving me several drinks and shots. I left the bar and 7 minutes later i hit a telephone pole and then hit a tree, totaling the vehicle, causing injury to myself and also getting a O.W.I above 0.15% No one else was involved in the wreck.
The bar could be liable if they continued to serve you alcohol when they knew that you were extremely intoxicated. I...
