What state am I a resident in for probation? Arrested for DUI in Colorado but haven't been in Colorado long.
I don't want to do probation in Colorado! After spending a year in foreign countries I came to Colorado to quickly write a thesis. I did not plan on being resident. I got a DUI that will require probation and the arrest happened in September. There are out-of-state priors going back 15 years. When I came to Colorado I registered my vehicle which had been in storage because the plates were expired. I have a NJ drivers license. Before going overseas I went to school briefly in Texas but was considered an out-of-state student. Prior to that I was in Montana for less than a year and prior to that I was in Oregon for over a year (that would be 2010-2012). I believe I was registered to vote in Oregon. I took some graduate classes in Oregon and may have been considered resident for that (I don't recall). For purposes of probation can I claim to be resident of Oregon? I know there is an interstate compact but it sounds very hard to transfer. The question is: where would I be considered resident? I expect 6 months of work release in Colorado which will bring me over a year in the state but the only reason I have stayed here is for the pendancy of the case.
Generally, once you are on probation in a state, you need permission to move to another state and that state has to...
Could I get Hawaii DUI dismissed through Oregon's diversion prog., or is there any other way to avoid the 3 yr SR22 requirement?
I was convicted of DUI in Hawaii, and have since been released from suspension there, however I am back in Oregon and they are requiring an SR22 to reinstate my Oregon license. I see that OR has a diversion program, and by reading the forms, it looks like I am not disqualified to file a motion to dismiss the charge. I just don't know how to go about trying, and if it will work or not. One clerk told me I won't even know that until I spend the hundreds of dollars and a year for the diversion program here. (Even though I did some of the assessments to reduce the fines in Hawaii, I did not do the year with alcohol-free tests). If Hawaii had a similar program, I was not informed, and when I arrived back in Oregon a year later expecting to get my license reinstated I discovered the SR22 and diversion program.
This is really a DUI question, so I am answering it to move it there so a DUI attorney can assist.
What happens if a blow test fails on an IID?
My neighbor has had two duii's and now has an IID installed in his car. He blew a .177 the morning after drinking. What happens with that information? Does it go to DMV? Also, his sister lost her license due to DUII as well, and I've seen her illegally driving his car. Does the camera monitoring system pick up on this kind of information, or will it just read the clean breathalyzer result and not care who blew? just kind of concerned and hoping there is some kind of follow-up before someone gets hurt. obviously this guy would have driven at .177 if he didn't have the IID.
The information on the breath test failure will be discovered at the company that installed the interlock. Then they...
Is it legal to share an Ignition Interlock Device with two drivers driving the same car in the event that both have DUI's?
My wife and I share the same car, we both got a DUI at the same time as the officers were running a sting in the state of OR. Now, we face the fact that the Ignition Interlock device company will not add both of our Driving lics to the same agreement. Is this legal?
I don't see why that wouldn't be an issue so long as you don't drive a vehicle without an IID>
Does the Oregon's Diversion program allows Parole officers or case managers to show announced to my house for inspections?
I like to drink wine with my meals, but I am worried that my legal rights will affect my wife's Diversion program, if for instance: the Parole officer decides to come into our house for a search and finds that we have a wine collection and other spirits in the house / or that we, still buy wine / spirits since we belong to wine clubs.
DUII Diversion does not require that one's spouse abstain from drinking. Rather, the statute requires: "an agreement by...
So what should I do? Any advice? Can I beat this case?
So I got pulled over heading to the casino and did the field test and blew a .06. The cop let me go but is charging me with duii. On the paper work for the dmv it says I passed. I'm lost and don't know what to do I seriously had to go to the bathroom too and I was speeding just to try and make it and not to mention is was rainy and cold but I did good on the tests besides the cop saying my eyes weren't following the pen tip
If you've been charged with a dui then you need to hire an attorney. You definitely have defenses.
