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,...

What is the process for driver's license reinstatement in Kansas following an interlock restriction?
I have had an ignition interlock on my vehicle since 2012. According to my restriction letter, online driver's license status, and driving record I am up for reinstatement as of 4/18/16. From here, do I need to wait for Driver Control to send me a letter with the reinstatement requirements before I can pay the fines and reinstate? Also, my license expires on May 21, 2016. If I am not able to reinstate by then, can I renew my license while keeping the interlock? Or, if not, can I just continue driving with the interlock and restriction notice? I have tried calling, emailing, and faxing Driver Control with no results.
If your interlock restriction period is up, you just need to go to the local DMV and pay the reinstatement fee, ($400...

Can I get a restricted Driving License in Kansas?
I have a California Driving License. Got a DUI in CA and DL is under DMV’s 4 month suspension. Moved from CA to Kansas for a new job. It's been a month with no driving.
Typically one state will honor the suspension of another state. You can always go into DMV in Kansas and see what they say.
Drug testing costs in diversion program
i am currently in a diversion program for a first time DUI charge in Johnson county , ks. During my first meeting with my diversion officer, they asked me to have a drug test done for 25 bucks at a lab corp. I understand they will ask me to have these tests done at times throughout the 1 year diversion. I am wondering how often on average do they ask to do it? I figure worse case would be if they asked at every single monthly meeting, which would be 12 tests max or 300 bucks for the year. Could it possibly be more than this? Less? I know everyone is different, just curious what a typical experience is like for someone. I have been in the program for a couple months, already have all my classes done, so these drug tests would be my only remaining costs.
The best defense is to always be clean and sober then you don't have to worry especially if they call you in for an...
I received a DUI Dec. 23, 2014 in Overland Park, KS 66212. My court date is Jan. 13, 2015 in Overland Park Municipal Court. I
I called the court and they told me the first appearance would be for instructions and decision making. I did not think I needed a lawyer for this appearance but now I am really scared. Details: My husband recently died and I have been overwhelmed with income loss and grief. I was home that night and depressed. So, I decided to meet friends for a beer and their support which was only a block from my house. When I returned home and turned into my driveway I hit a fire hydrant. A fellow citizen called the police whom arrived before I had gotten out of my car in the driveway He arrested me and took me to the station. I didn't realize I had hit anything as there was no noise and my car was not damaged. This is my first offense. Is it to late to receive help?
Absolutely not! Your case hasn't really begun and you have plenty of time to hire an attorney. If you cannot afford one,...
