North Little Rock Law

Was arrested for DUI in October 2015, it's January 2017 and no verdict from the judge.
In October 2015, I was arrested for DUI, refusal (even though I blew in the machine 3 times), careless driving and driving on a suspended license, even though I had court papers saying my ticket was paid in full the court never released my license. The first two times I went to court, the state asked for a continuance because the arresting officer was not present and the second was because the witness did not show up. I had provided documents that my license was good and that I was not under the influence of alcohol, I was sleep driving due to a medication. The judge accepted the documents I presented and stated that he would render a decision with in a few days and that was in August of 2016. How long do I have before my lawyer can file a motion to dismiss?
If I were your lawyer, and the defense has never asked for a reset or a continuance, I would file a motion to dismiss...
Can you be charged with DUI out of your house?
I have a friend that is being charged with DUI. The police came to his house and are charging him with this. I would think you could not charge someone with DUI unless they were in their vehicle.
I am not an AR lawyer but it seems to me that driving would be an essential element of any DUI charge anywhere (it...
I was charged with a DUI after being stopped at a sobriety check point. At the station I blew a .108. Can I beat a conviction?
The road block was in Lawrence County AR. I stupidly, as I now realize, admitted I had drank earlier in the afternoon. It was 10:50 pm and I had my last drink at 7. I had no trouble with balance or coordination during the field sobriety test but I feel I was visibly nervous. The officer stated the handheld BAC read high and took me to the station where I blew a .108. This is my first DUI charge. I've been told by an area attorney it is not even worth attempting the hearing with the co. Jdg and I will need to appeal for a Jury trial. But with probable cause and evidence of BAC above the legal limit, I feel it is a gamble of poor odds to go to trial. What would my defense be? Would I be better off pleading guilty and waiting five years to have the conviction expunged?
First, I would recommend that you do not post specific details about your case on a public website. You may want to...
When will I know if I have been charged?
I was in a crash and had alcohol with me in my car. The crash killed the other driver. A Blood alcohol level was drawn on both drivers. I was severely injured and don't remember any part of that day. If my alcohol level is elevated when should I hear from investigators or police?
I suspect you will hear from law enforcement regardless of whether your BAC was anything other than 0.00. They'll...
Just wondering if my girlfriend is gonna get any prison time for getting a DUI while she is on felony probation
My girlfriend was driving with another person one night and got pulled over the officer smelled pot. He kept asking my girlfriend to take a soberity test and she refused by continuing to ask him does it smell like I have been drinking a few times of saying that he handcuffed her and took her to jail. Her friend in the car was the one smoking the stuff and my girlfriend never touched it but her friend got to avoid going to jail. My girlfriend goes to see a PO once a week and hasn't failed a drug test yet. But she is on felony probation and got court in the next few weeks I was just wondering if she is gonna go to prison for violating her probation
Hope not ! but your specific answer will come from asking her attorney who has all the facts and evidence.
How do yo beat driving on a suspended license with it being your 5th time
I have four kids and has been told he would lock me up and told me to look for a baby sitter or my kids would be put in DHS
You don't just "beat it," or lawyers like me wouldn't have a job. You hire a lawyer who is good at their job and you...

While at work I get a call from my husband stating he is sitting in the back of the cop car for apparently drinking and driving while driving into a ditch. He just went to court and received a 6 month pass... how will this affect that? What can he be facing?
