Will I still be charged for a dui?
I was arrested last night under suspicion of DUI. When I was released this morning, they didn't give me a ticket/citation or say anything about a court date. I've called the municipal court and the gentleman that I spoke with said that he didn't see anything for me in the system. This is my first offense and I'm not quite sure how these things work. Any advice would be great!
In the event you are going to be charged, it is not uncommon for the criminal summons to be mailed to you. In the...
What is the best way to beat a dwi ?
4dwi. No field test no breath test no blood test blacked out due to health reason and run into ditch. No one hurt.
You need to hire the best DUI lawyer you can afford to represent you, as soon as possible.
What are the likely criminal penalties for a minor with a DWI in Missouri?
Pulled over by a city police officer. 19 years old. Did sobriety testing blew a .04, the legal limit is .02 for a minor. What is likely to become of me when the process is all said and done? Is probation almost certain? The officer said I had hit the middle dotted line on the highway consecutive times. No one else in the vehicle. Curious of the likely criminal penalties and I am also going to college out of state and wondering if this has a chance for me being required to travel back and forth.
What is the number ordinance or statute? It will be on the ticket. Or did you just get a notice of suspension or...
Help with probation for DUI
I'm almost done with a two year probation and I've done everything I need to do, according to my probation officer. However, one of my terms of probation was to complete a 90 day SCRAM anklet, which I haven't completed. Should I bring this up?
Bring it up to whom? If no one else is mentioning it, I see no reason to bring it up. It would have been prudent to...
I was driving but my husband got DWI what can we do??
My husband and I were at a bar and of course drinking. Well we were going to leave with some friends and I decided to move the car my husband was in the passenger seat and I stupidly decided to do a burn out in the empty parking lot. Anyway cops showed up and asked who was driving as they clearly could see my husband getting out of the passenger seat and me standing by the driver door with keys in my hand. My husband said he was driving because I have my CDL and drive a school bus and will loose my job if I got a DWI. So my husband took the blame but now I want to just go ahead and say it was me because it really was me and my husband already has 3 DWI this would be his 4th but that's not fair to him because he really was not driving. The cops never investigated me or asked me any questions they just took my husbands word for it. So how can we fight this back? What will happen if I say I really was driving after they already charged my husband?
If you admit that you were really the one driving, you will very likely be arrested and charged with DWI. If convicted,...
A drunk individual took pictures of my license plate and video of me without my consent. How can I protect myself?
The individual was implying I was too drunk to drive because of a stupid comment my friend made. I was not. I am going to be a teacher and I cannot have video floating around that could damage my reputation. I am extremely worried that this might happen. It was a short video, but I am still very concerned. What recourse do I have?
Contact a MO privacy / reputation lawyer. Chances of being able to do anything proactively are small.
