Would it be possible for me to go to his trial and what's the chance I'd have to testify?
Im a victim of drunk driving hit and run. I've been dealing with my injuries for almost 3 months now. CTs, X-Ray's, Rxs like crazy, 2 months of PT, neurologists, neurosurgeons, pain management, about to get trigger point injections, etc.... The guy was drunk as a skunk and rear-ended us so hard our car turned sideways at a stoplight. He looked at us and stomped the gas and took off. Cops caught up with him. He told both the cops and his insurance company he didn't remember anything. His insurance company didn't want to give me he jack squat so I now have the area's best personal injury lawyer handling everything. The guy has been charged with eluding, Dwi, and leaving the scene of an accident. He was arraigned and RORed shortly after arrest but his court date is in about a month.

In VA: I failed a start up test on my interlock (DUI 2nd in 5 to 10, 2nd being in 2008). Right after, it passed me.
I failed a start up test, it locked me out for 5, then retested and I passed. Got to my destination and cut car off, restarted and I passed again. I have not even had device for a month yet and now this and I have not drink anything at all with alcohol, no meds, nothing. Is this is violation and will I get interlock extended, court again, etc? This is completely nuts. I did replace mouth piece and now seems to be working fine. But I can't keep having this happen since obviously this is a false+.

Can I get a restricted license after a felony DWI?
In 2014 I was involved in a DWI. Another car crossed over the center line, I swerved to avoid it, and injured a pedestrian. There was alcohol in my system. This was my first offense - both traffic and criminal. My lawyer had me plead guilty. I lost my license for 4 years, have been on probabtion for two (with zero issues), paid off all court fines as well as a substantial restitution to the victim. The accident occurred in NC but by the court date I had moved to VA. I have no family in the area and no close friends in town. My boyfriend, the reason I moved to VA, is slated to deploy in the next year. Is there a way I can petition for a restricted or hardship license so that I can maintain the house, go to doctor's appointments, care for my animals, etc. while he is out of the country? Better yet, is there any way I could potentially get an actual license back before the originally assigned 4 years is over?
You are going to be in quite a dilemma here. First, you have to go to NC to to get your license reinstated. Then you...
