If it is someone's first dui in KS why is license suspended for a year and not 30 days?
I read that the first dui offense is a 30 day suspension and a mandatory 48 hours in jail. A 2nd dui is a loss of a year of driving privileges and 90-a year in jail. Does this mean my boyfriend is lying about which dui it is? I know that he blew 3 times over the limit. Does that make a difference? Do prior charges like MIPs factor in?
Your missing some pieces here. Your boyfriend is dealing with both a criminal case as well as an administrative action...
Who can order an alcohol test & how often?
I've charged with a DUI in the state of Kansas & am currently going through diversion.
This should be spelled out in your diversion agreement. It is not unusual for the agreement to state the court, a...
Will I go to jail at my first appointed court date for my second dui with a "not guilty status"?
I was not in the vehicle at the time of the arrest but the officer said they got a call and camera footage that I had been driving the car. When I walked up to the officers who were looking for me because of the phone call they explained to me that they wanted to give me a field sobriety test because they thought I was intoxicated. I was not in the car anymore when this happened and was actually far away enough that you couldn't even see the car. I failed the test with a .17 bac. They arrested me for grounds of a dui claiming that even though I wasn't in the car since they had footage of me in the car and I was intoxicated they would take me to jail. When I got to jail I was booked and printed and then told I could post bail for $1000 which I happened to have on me. The court date was scheduled two weeks after this occurance. This is my second dui, my first one was completed with diversion and erased from my record I was 18 and now 25 both of these happened in Kansas. I am currently waiting for my court appearance. I also want to know how much jail time I'll be spending in general.
To answer your question as to whether you would go to jail, under this scenario, on the next court appearance, if you...

All other legal requirements were met at the time except the interlock. I have had no moving violations or DUIs since 2008!
Yes. you will never be able to legally drive unless you fulfill the ignition interlock device requirement.

What will show up on my driving record after I have completed diversion for a DUI?
I was arrested for a DUI in April of 2015 in Kansas. I have completed my diversion and had an interlock device in my car for the required amount of time. Since I have completed everything will it still show on my driving record that I was on diversion for DUI, or will it just show that I was on diversion in general?
The charge will show up on your history unless you have it restricted (something they generally dont like to do). It...
DUI questions
I am being charged with DUI even though I wasn't seen driving. I lied for my boyfriend at the time who had an accident behind me. I claimed something like a cat or dog came across the road and caused him to swerve into a fixed object. By the time police and ambulance services came, my car was parked in a parking lot with the keys/FOB in the front flap of my purse. My car doesn't operate using a key-it uses a FOB, the hood was cold and no GPS was pulled out of it showing when it was last operated. There was mass confusion on the scene-my then boyfriend had a head injury and the cop who started in on me wasn't the original cop on the scene. We were told about the confusion from the tow truck people I called. I refused to do any field sobriety tests. I wasn't allowed to leave and was placed in handcuffs. It was a custody. I had a blood test done. I know for a fact they used an alcohol swab because I have a severe aversion to needles. It came out .08. At that point, they said I wasn't in custody and free to go-releasing me to drive. 7 mos. ltr., I get the citation in the mail. Is it normal to allow someone under the suspicion of DUI to just leave and get back in a car to drive home?
It is atypical, and probably good for your defense, especially during cross-examination. However, though atypical,...
