Can I get dui's expunged in IN while being htv?
I got a dui in October of 2016. I had two priors, but they are 8 years ago. The bmv suspended my license for 10 for habitual traffic violator. Can I get the dui's expunged to get my license back?
The problem is the law governing expungements does not allow you to expunge a record if you have had a conviction...

If I fail my first drug test for The Diversion Program (with probation) will I go to jail?
I've been trying to get all of the THC out of my body because I'm worried about this. I quit smoking marijuana because I'm serious about this. But I used to be a heavy chronic smoker. Will I face jail time for failing my first urine drug test?
You will likely be given a pass on the first test. However, your second test will have to be clean.
Can 2 DUI affect my GC processing?
I was convicted of dui in 2014 in Wisconsin and I paid all the fines and did everything I was asked to by court. But I faced another dui now in june2017 in Indiana and court has assigned me to probation for a year and I have paid the fines and completed my community service that I was asked for. I am on H1b visa and my company is planning to file my GC next year. Will these two dui conviction cause any issue with my GC approval or my i140. Since the company attorneys will be involved in this how should I proceed with the same.
No, it should not prevent you from adjustment of status.
What will happen if I fail a felony probation drug text?
I smoked marijuana a couple of days before my monthly probation meeting. I got a wonderful surprise in the form of a random drug test. I had just used the washroom before the meeting and told her I wouldn't be able to produce enough urine for the test so she administered an oral test. I had also drank alcohol recently, which I am not allowed to do on probation, and confessed that to her hoping that by admitting she wouldn't do the test. She told me the test didn't check for alcohol and asked if I have an alcohol problem etc. I did not admit to having smoked recently and am sure I probably tested positive for thc. I live with my parents and am unemployed but my father works across the street from our house and told me that he saw a county police officer knocking on our door yesterday (Friday) morning around 8 am. I know for a fact that I was at home but I didn't hear anyone at the door. So the question I am trying to get to is would an officer come to arrest me if I did indeed fail the drug test? I am extremely nervous and my father didn't tell me he saw an officer come to the house until this morning so I can't call my attorneys office to explain and ask until Monday
You can't be certain but there is certainly a possibility that the cop was there to arrest you for a probation...
How can someone be punished before being convicted?
I have a friend who was arrested for possession of drugs. They found the drugs in his moms house, who he lives with and they also arrested her. He admitted that everything was his and willing to accept whatever charges may come and they told his mom she was not being charged with anything. However, she is having to go through the pretrial diversion program anyway. How is this not a violation of rights? Isn't the accused innocent until PROVEN guilty or is that just a fancy phrase? Recently, the mother failed a drug test, so is that the same as probation violation or what repercussions will come from that? How is this not entrapment? I'm not a lawyer so that is why I'm consulting you guys, but in my opinion this is a major overstep of authority and it does not allow for due process.
Let's tackle this piece by piece. This has absolutely nothing to do with entrapment. Essentially, entrapment occurs...
