Wash out law for DUI in Nebraska
I got a DUI a few days ago. I read about a wash out law that a conviction goes away after 15 years. This law according to the website I read says it was put into law in 2012 my last DUI was in 2004. Does this make me exempt from any prior DUI's?
The "lookback" period in Nebraska is currently 15 years. What that means is that convictions for DUI or Refusal that...
How can I get out a a DUI when I wasn't driving
I got a DUI while passed out in my truck. I wasn't driving I was sleeping. The keys were in the ignition and the vehicle running. Can I make a case and try and get out of it?

Is deferred adjudication a possibility in Douglas county?
I was arrested last week for a 1st offense DUI in Douglas county with a BAC of .136. I have no priors and am hoping to receive probation (along with fines, AA, license suspension, etc.). My question is this: Should I expect that probation to be a strait probation or is there a possibility of deferred adjudication? I know Douglas does not allow diversion, I'm just not sure if deferred adjudication falls under that umbrella.
Short answer is NO. Can't get a deferred adjudication since you would have to be juvenile. Adjudication is the same...
I have a first offense DUI, Why does a person have to do random drug testing for an alcohol charge?
I've never had anything on my record at all and I have 9 months probation, 40 hours of community service and paid $1500.00 in fines. I got my DUI because another driver hit me in the driver side of my car after THEY ran a red light and I also had the interlock in my car for 6 months. I got my DUI on 08/08/15, had the interlock for 6 months and didn't even get sentenced until 03/02/16 and was still given 9 months even after attending AA meetings twice a week, plus completing my interlock and drug/alcohol classes. In turn my drug/alcohol evaluation I just found out was not sent to the court in it's entire form there were pages missing, could I possibly get this overturned at all do to that??
Guess I'm sorry you got caught driving drunk after someone else hit you. As far as the testing requirement it is a...

How do we go about this when he goes to court? How can they truly tell it wasn't him in California and that he's been here?
A friend of mine for pulled over for drunk driving and the national database said he had a prior in 2009 in California. The only problem is he's been here in Nebraska since 2000 so that's not possible at all! They weren't finger printed in California but my husband was finger printed here in Nebraska.

What will most likely be the outcome and will he have to do jail time since he works full time?
My husband was driving home Saturday night and made it all the way home. Parked his truck and was about to come inside when a sheriff came and made him do sobriety tests. He passed all the tests so the sheriff took him to the hospital to get blood drawn. They arrested him. I posted the $1000 bond. He was charged with DUI 2, open container, and no drivers license. His first DUI is old but not really sure when it was just know it may be way over 8 years ago. They gave him a court date
