Can a family member appeal to the judge for a rehabilitation sentence in a DUI case?
My mother committed a 1st offense DUI roughly 3 weeks ago. Last night, she was arrested again for the same charge. I understand the jail time that she's facing and that she'll likely get "the book thrown at her" for two DUIs in 1 month, but my question is this: What are the chances that he'll sentence her to some sort of rehabilitation? Would it be helpful at all if I contacted the judge and appealed to him for this? Thanks so much in advance.
Yes, but only contact the judge in open court and do so through her attorney.
I was arrest for dui.
she ask me if i was drinking or doing drugs. i told her no. she gave me the walk test the eye test. but she didnt like me eye tests that she gave me 4 times. So i told her i want a blood test to prove that there nothing in my body. So when it come back negtive can i sue.

Not sure if MY DUI attorney is doing a good job.
Preliminary hearing has happened without the video evidence. The cop when asked why he felt I did poorly on the field sobriety test said it's in my notes and I don't have them. My lawyer only asked very few follow up questions to what the prosecutor asked the cop. He also told the officer several time he wasn't trying to badger him. Afterwards the judge scolded the prosecution for not being prepared but bound my case over and took my license for implied consent. I got SR22 insurance for work restricted license and have her nothing from my lawyer. I herd from other lawyers I had 10 days to file an appeal for the decision of taking my license. I brought this up to my attorney he has not returned my calls. Time is running out. What should I do?
If he won't return your calls, then go directly to his office. Or email him. Phone is not always the most convenient...

Resident of Tennessee, DWI in Arkansas. First DWI
I am a resident of Tennessee. I was pulled over and issued a DWI in Arkansas, first DWI. They took my license and issued me a temporary one ( a piece of paper good for 30 days). My questions are: - Will TN be notified of the DWI? - How do I get my license back and is it also suspended in TN? - I am on probation in TN, I have 45 days left. Probation ends before first Arkansas court date. What can I expect? Violation of probation? Should I inform them since it was in another state or wait it? Also, I have 7 days to request an administrative hearing for license suspension. Not sure whether to mark the box to fully contest it or mark the one for restricted. Again, confused. I'm licensed in TN and this was in Arkansas. I have reached out to a few AR attorneys but have not heard back. Thanks for looking.
TN will likely be notified. How you go about getting your license back will depend on how your case turns out. Your PO...
How can I get around pending DUI to obtain employment as automotive tech?
When I was living in North Carolina and had a North Carolina driver's license, I was arrested for a DUI. This was two years ago, I have since moved to Tennessee and have a new Tennessee driver's license and the case is still pending in North Carolina. I am trying to get a job in a dealership, but they are telling me that I am not hire-able due to the pending DUI.
No way around it. Must deal with it directly.
