I have been on probation for a felony DUI in Alaska for 2.5 years with a minor PTRP with no new charge and only 6 months remaining on probation. Can I petition the court to reduce my charge to a Misdemeanor?
This would require an attorney from your state. In some states, such a petition is possible, but the prosecutor...
Our truck was stuck off the side of the road & was still running. The cop showed up, took my brother from drivers seat & cuffed him. The car still on, I slid into drivers seat cause passenger door couldn't open, my foot hit the gas pedal and revved up. Cop then removed me from vehicle and is charging me with a DUI. This was on 3/31 my court date is 4/9 where I'll be appointed a public defender. I wasn't driving, I was drinking and blew a .20, I don't recall any sobriety tests, I wasn't offered a blood test, and I was released on bail that day. Can I fight this? Can they charge two people with a DUI for the same incident?
In theory, yes they can charge you both. When you hit the gas you were operating the vehicle. Your public defender will...
I was arrested for DWI in NY and my license was suspended for 1 year. I had to install ignition interlock device for 6 months. Recently, device was removed from my car, and IID restriction was removed from my conditional license. I have to go to a business trip in Alaska. Can I legally drive a rental car in Alaska with my NYS conditional license?
I doubt that NY would expand the scope of your conditional license to allow driving during this business trip, but it...
Someone I know was arrested for a DWI in 2007 and bailed out and then left state Texas without going to court. They put a warrant out on him and then in 2013 he went back to Texas turned himself in and bailed out on a surety bond. Again he fail to appear and now has another warrant. What are the legal consequences when this happens?
Nothing good. I would say he should contact legal counsel but it is apparent he has no intent on dealing with his...
on I believe I was hypothermic I failed the test and was given a breathilisore I think both test should be thrown out any opinions or answers
More would need to be discussed with an attorney before they could provide you any opinions. I would suggest...
I was charged with a first DUI in Alaska on 10/1/13. My license was revoked for 90 days. I also have 3 days jail (remanded to 1/15/14), SR22 and ignition interlock requirement, alcohol classes and a fine. After 90 days, if I have not completed my other requirements yet, can I get my license reinstated?
You have to show you are in compliance with your ASAP (Alcohol Safety Action Program) requirements, which usually means...
What should I do? I contacted the probation officer and she said to come back. I explained that this was from 12 years ago and I know longer lived in Iowa. She said that one of the conditions was not to leave the state. I served seven days in jail and as soon as i got out i left. The dmv revoked my license 12 years ago so there penalty has already been enforced and i have a clear driving record. I don't want to be looking over my shoulder.
This depends on Iowa law, not Alaska law. And, your facts are confusing to me. If your probation was for 2 years and...
