My friend violated his furlough for DUI #6 in Vt. Will he have to finish out his sentence in jail?
My friend was convicted of DUI#6 in VT last year. He was out on probation for DUI #5 when he did so. He was sentenced from 3 months to 3 years of furlough. He is supervised by Probation and Parole now. Long story short, he violated the terms of his release by neglecting to attend his court ordered group meeting. HIs parole officer then came to his residence and he was under the influence of alcohol at the time. This is not his first violation either. Will he be incarcerated for the rest of his sentence, or is there the possibility he gets out on supervision with ankle monitors, etc. He has been under strict supervision before and he never is successful. Will he do the time in prison now is my question. He goes in front of parole board next week. Thank you!
When you violate furlough, the sanction is determined by DOC (as opposed to the Judge, who sentences a person that has...
I was the passenger in my car and the person driving said I had been driving earlier I hadn't. I got arrested too.
We both had been drinking, but the person driving had a suspended license. I think she aS trying to cover her butt by saying she HAD to drive because I wasn't able to. I also git arrested and charged. How can I fight this? I didn't know a police officer could use someone's oral stAtement as evidence to arrest someone when there is no proof that I drive that car. What should I do?
I am not licensed in Vermont, but the issue is something I have seen in CA more than once. First of all, in Vermont,...
What is the easiest way to get my license back?
I had a DUI in NH, which i live in VT, and it was 3 yrs ago. I didn't handle my case properly and got convicted. My BF is disabled and needs me to bring him to his doctors appt and other things he needs as well. I have a different lifestyle than 3 yrs ago I don't get in trouble (arrested, ticketed etc.) I don't drink anymore. I don't think that i would get anything out of the programs, I don't live my life like that and well aware of the problems it might cause for whoever is involved. Not only for DWI fees but also the fact of what alcohol does to the body and mind. I was wondering if there was a faster way to get my license back?
First and foremost, talk to your attorney from your New Hampshire DUI. I assume your license is in Vermont. There is...
Vehicle ran out of gas. Hazard lights on, keys in pocket. 1 hr passed making calls for assistance. I was arrested for a DUI.
While on the side of the road I had started to drink. An hour had passed when an Officer pulled up to assist me. He smelled alcohol on my breath, he said he would take me to get a can of gas. Officer told me before he was to take me to get the gas he asked if I would take a breathalyzer test. I reluctantly took the test and failed. I had told the officer I had been drinking during the hr I was on the side of the road making calls. I was arrested for a DUI I was not driving and vehicle was not running and safely parked on the side of the freeway. Is there a defence?
Yes there is no observation of operation - no probable cause - no observation if intoxication. This case screams "take...
Does vt require an iid for dui 3 offenders that have completed their crash reqirements?
Today I had my exit interview for project crash in springfield vt. At the conclusion of the interview, the person interviewing me told me that the state of vermont requires me to get an interlock device installed on my vehicle and that I would have to have it for life. I am trying to discern whether or not this is true. The program I did for crash was the total abstinence program, and all my paperwork was in order. In vermont the paperwork is then forwarded to the vermont DMV who conducts an investigation to decide whether or not I get my licence back. So far my research has told me that the IID is optional and I can wait until DMV makes their decision. However, my interviewer told me that to get my licence back, I would have to get and keep the IID for life.

If I am on furlough and parole in Vermont for DUI 4, would I be able to opt for jail time instead of the furlough?
I was arrested in 2016 on charges of Dui 4. I was sentenced to 3 years. I have done a total of 5 and a half months jail time for this offense, and the rest of the time in the past 2 years has been on furlough with conditions. I was released to furlough for the second time in September of this year. I have decided I don't like the conditions of furlough and would rather do the time in jail. Is this a possibility? Would I have to clear with parole officer, or with the judge?

Is a deferred criminal sentence a conviction in Vermont?
I was arrested for domestic violence and accepted a deferred sentence of 12 months probation as I'm a first offender without a criminal record. My question is whether my deferred sentence is a conviction during my 12 months of probation? I ask because I'm wondering if it will show up as a conviction in the Vermont criminal information center? Thank you
Yes the domestic violence charge will appear on your record until the 12 month period has run. If you complete the...
