How soon is your drivers license suspended after a arrest for a DUI.
I just got a call from my 24 yr old son last night that he was arrested for a DUI. He just graduated from college and has a good job. He was out celebrating with friends and made a bad choice about deciding to drive home. This is his first offence. I'm worried about him losing his job if he can't drive to work. He drives 45min there and back Monday thru Friday.
In St. Joseph County, it usually takes a few days for charges to be filed, so your son has a window of opportunity to...
Will jail time be required?
Lengthy criminal background, violated parole(P.I., driving on suspended lic., criminal misdemeanor for stealing.) Already served jail time for neglect of dependent. Has a 4 page public record documented and recently an eviction notice added on and CPS called and went to house. At that time, CPS found several other issues and called in the appropriate offices ( Humane Society, residential offices ) and so on. What is the likely hood of jail time and how much?
If all of what you state is in St. Joe county then jail is very likely. The length will depend on what has been done...

Can you offer an understanding of my sister's sentence?
I believe my sister is not obeying the rules to her sentence/probation. Could someone explain exactly what it means: 1. 9-30-5-2(a)/MA: Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated Endangering a Person 3. 9-26-1-1.1(a)(1)/MB: Leaving the Scene of an Accident Driver fails to immediately stop at the scene Comment: (Count I 365 days with 360 suspended Concurrent to Count III 365 days with 360 suspended) Confinement to Commence: 01/23/2017 County Jail Term: 730 Days Suspended: 720 Days 01/20/2017 Dispositional Hearing
She was sentenced to a year in jail on each charge to run at the same time with 360 days suspended. So she essentially...
Plea bargained to 6 months with ignition interlock device to reduce my OWI to reckless driving.
When does the 6 months start? Is it as soon as I out the IID in my car. If I do not drive for 6 months, do I still need to get one installed?
You will need to read the judgment and sentence or ask your Attorney no way to answer without seeing the Court documents.
Is there a better possible option for my OWI case in Indiana?
I was charged with an OWI misdemeanor in Indiana. I have never been convicted of anything before. I have never even recieved a speeding ticket. My official breathalyzer reading was .126 at the station (as written on the police report). Before I got into the detox cell, where I spent about 3-4 hours in, they took a final breathalyzer test which read 0.08 (this was not in the report). I have gotten an alcohol evaluation and letter saying that I do not have a pattern of high risk alcohol consumption. I have retained a lawyer. I was told that the most likely outcome is a reduction to reckless driving and an ignition interlock device in my car for 6 months. I am wondering if there is any other possible outcomes I can ask my attorney to work towards? For example a reduction to careless driving instead of reckless. Or no ignition interlock device, but 100 or so hours of community service instead.
These are good questions for your attorney who knows the case and the jurisdiction. In most jurisdictions a reduction...
How bad is my dui case? I am very scared. I don't know what will happen next
I was pulled over two nights ago because I was driving while it was snowing and my car slipped. The police were right behind me to see the crash (no one was hurt and no property was damaged, just my car tire). They asked me if I had any alcohol in me as soon as I got pulled over. I said no. They told me to go to the backseat if the cop car and as soon as I got into the cop car they asked me again and again if I had alcohol in me. They took my breathalyzer test a couple of times. One of the cops putting in my information in the computer told me that I should be fine because this is my first offence and I have never gotten into any sort of trouble before. Also I go to school at notre dame. I stayed in the detox cell for about 3 hours and they released me on an ROR with a court date for Dec 29. I am very scared of the outcome. After I was released with an ROR, my court date was put on there. I assume it was for an OWI because I heard someone say it, but I was never told it to my face. I am not sure what to expect on that court date. Should I bring a lawyer? I was never advised by anyone there to do so.
From your description it sounds like you were charged with an OWI. Your first hearing is called an Initial Hearing. It...
