    The Obama administration is planning a series of ICE raids beginning in January to ferret out and deport thousands of Central American immigrants who entered the United States in 2014 after fleeing rampant violence in their home countries, according to The Washington Post. An immigration judge ordered these families deported either because their asylum claims were denied or they didn't appear for their immigration court hearings.

Sentenced to a lifetime license suspension for a first time 4th.Degree felony OVI. Isn't this contrary to law?
Was wrongfully convicted and sentenced to 5 yrs. in prison with a lifetime suspension. Isn't the suspension for life an illegal sentence?

A friend of mine is being charged with a dui but in reality it is an open container.
They charged the other person he was with open container because they were both in the drivers seat, but he has a couple prior dui's so I am guess this is why, He hired an attorney who is charging him $10,000. to represent him but just told him the other day he will not be defending him since he still owes $5000.00 is this legal to do? The guy has paid him half but now will not represent him. He is doing the best he can with payments but it is hard coming up with that kind of money. Can anyone please lend me some advice.
It depends on the circumstances. If the attorney has filed a notice of appearance on the case, he must file a motion...
Obtaining US Citizenship after three DUIs.
First of, thank you for answering my question. Here is my situation. I came to US in 1993. Being dumb, I managed to have 3 DUIs from 2000 to 2008. I was convicted on all 3. Since they were apart some time from each other, they are not counted as felony. I know the mistakes I made and paid for them dearly. I have been sober and have clean record since 2008. Not even a parking ticket. I have professional job and been in my career for past 15 years. My green card expires in 2013 which will put me right at 5 years of "good moral character". My question is: 1. Is there even a remote chance for me to obtaining US Citizenship if I wait, let's say 4 years from the date of last DUI. 2. Is it possible for me to have my Permanent Resident status revoked if I decide to renew my green card instead?
As you already noticed, your three convictions will impact your "good moral character" finding. You should probably not...

What type of breathalyzer looks similar to a incentive spirometer (hospital equipment)? Is the output affected by acetaldehyde?
Blew a 0.250 at the station recently. Doing preliminary research, as I feel this was an incredibly exaggerated number. My question is about the type of breathalyzer the officers used and whether "mouth alcohol" could be a factor.
You were tested on the Intoxilyzer 8000. And yes, the results can be skewed by alcohol in your mouth. The officer(s)...
How can a specification to an ovi carry more time than the main charge of an ovi?
In September there was a decision in the Ohio Supreme Court in the case of Edward South, The Court found that the maximum sentence for a third degree felony was 36 months. If this is in fact the case then how can the specification still carry a 5 year maximum when it is supposed to be an enhancement to the Third-degree felony OVI charge. i understand that it was legislations intent but how can you receive more for the specification then what the actual charge carries?? It seems that legislation is treating the specification as if its a charge in itsself? If thats the case then its Double jeopardy because you need the same elements to obtain the third degree felony OVI as do you with the specification which is 5 in 20 years.. The law states that you cannot receive more than time than that of the most serious of crimes? so that would mean that the spec would have to be the dominant charge and therefore sets alone instead of being an enhancement?
If someone is on probation when the third degree OVI takes place, there could be an enhanced sentence due to the...
