Is it possible for me to have my scram removed earlier than the 9 months? If so what is the best way to ask the judge?
In June I was sentenced to wear a scram bracelet for 9 months to reduce my dui to a reckless. Next week I have a court date. I have all my fines and court costs paid. I also I have everything completed from sentence (dui classes,community service, and victim panel).
I think you do not realize how lucky you are to avoid a DUI conviction by complaining to that described option. I do...

Will my insurance cover my at fault dui accident? The other driver filed a personal injury claim. What does this mean for me.
At fault dui rear end accident. Was dropped down to a reckless. The other driver drove away from the accident with no apparent injuries. Ambulance was there but nobody was taken to a hospital.

What happens if I fail a drug test while on court supervision?
So i got pulled over for running a red light (disobeying a traffic signal). The officer smelled pot on me charged me for DUI and i was 17 out past curfew so i didnt have a vaild license. that was about a year ago. About a month ago I was found innocent of the DUI and on the non valid license. But she found me guilty of the disobeying the traffic signal and put me on court supervision and the prosecuting attorney asked to have 2 drug test for the supervision too i believe. What happens if I fail one of those drug tests? Can i lose my license? What can some of the outcomes be?
If you went through all this with no attorney you must be one of a kind. Presuming you are not, ASK YOUR ATTORNEY
I'm on diversion for getting an illegal consumption and may have to sign a refusal form for drug test, what will happen?
The only reason I would have to sign the refusal form is cause I couldn't pee. I sat there for 2 hours and tried but couldn't, my probation officer watched me the whole time. She said she would call the states attorney to see what they say to do. What do you think will happen? Btw, I am 100% that I would have passed the drug test.
Speak with your lawyer before agreeing to sign any refusal form.

Will a 4th (5th) DUI and driving on a suspended license result in prison time OR jail time?? Does a dismissed DUI, still count??
I know of someone who has managed to escape jail/prison time, although they have been found guilty of 3 DUI's and the 4th the DUI's was dismissed. They wore an ankle bracelet for 30 days for the 3rd DUI, but no jail time! They recently got caught driving drunk again while on a suspended license, so technically #5!
DUI, DWLR & DWLS all start out as Class A Misdemeanors. Punishment ranges from a MIMIMUM of 7 days in jail or 240 hours...
