After probation is complete, will a DUI show up on a CORI check if it is a CWOF and the record is NOT sealed? Massachusetts.
This was in Massachusetts, first offense, applying for finance jobs.
Yes and it can not be sealed for at least 5 years.
Are there other states that will grant a drivers license to someone that lost it in a given state?
I live in Mass and had 3 OUIs 20 yrs ago and got another one in 2009, in wich refused the breath test and the RMV decided to take my license for lifetime for 4th offense and refuse the chem test. Is there another state that may grant me a drivers license? Maybe a state that doesn't have Melanies Law?
No. Many states have signed onto a compact in which they share information regarding suspensions and revocations...
Can a mayor get a dui
I offered my mayor a ride home just asking
Virtually anyone, in the right circumstances, can be charged with a crime.
Can I ask for a hearing to reduce my suspension and get my license back?
I got a third OUI, the court considered it a second offense. My license was taken for 5 years for refusing the breathalyzer and another 8 years from the court. It is 7 years into my suspension. I no longer live in the state that I was charged in so a hardship license is not possible.
If you believe you have complied with all the requirements of your sentence, paid all the fines, completed all the...
What should I do?
I have a ri license and was caught w a oui in mass. Received a letter in the mail that my license is suspended in mass for 180 days immediately. My lawyer two weeks later scheduled a disposition two weeks later I received a 24 d program w dae classes for 16 weeks and a 45 day loss of license and now I just received a letter saying I have to serve the 180 days and then the 45 days after how can that be? My lawyer didn't mention anything about having to do the 180 days he only told me I have to serve the 45 days very confused?? Any help on what to do
Unfortunately, the RMV is correct. If you had taken the breathalyzer and failed, your 30-day suspension would expire...
Will i receive a summons to court for a dui?
hi last year i was in a dui crash and was arrested, its been about 8 months and im still going threw court and everything.. a month ago i crashed my truck into a ditch off the highway (not drunk,and about a month from my final court date) and a state trooper came, i talked to him for about 25 minute waiting for a ambulance and a tow truck. he had already looked me up and everything and said nothing. when i got into the ambulance he came over and asked if i had been drinking(i'm assuming because of my record) i politely said no and he said "don't insult my intelligence" i said i was not and he asked me if i would take a breathalyzer and i said i would like to get checked out at the hospital first because i was in severe pain. he then told me i would receive a summons to court and left without another word, no road side test nothing.. its been a month later. no summons, no licence suspension, and when i had my final court date they looked up my driving record and nothing poped up about that day besides a crash im assuming.. do you think i will receive a summons? how can i know
I doubt he would summons you into court for an OUI (same as DUI) as usually officers arrest people (even when the...
