What is the statute of limitations in RI for STD transmittal?
I was dating a man who didn't disclose to me that he was hsv (Herpes Simplex Virus) positive. We slept together & he went on vacation. During that time (about 11 days) I developed a (genital) primary outbreak & went to the Dr to get a swab / blood test. My blood test came back negative (as it was a primary outbreak & my body hadn't built up antibodies yet (with no antibodies, you produce a negative result) I was given a prescription for antivirals & started the course. When the guy I was seeing came back from vacation, I mentioned to him that he may have passed something along to me, he apologized that I was in pain but denied having anything to do with my 'issue' which didn't seem right because he was the only person I'd been intimate with & he was denying having anything. Suspicious that he wasn't telling the truth, I went into the bathroom, looked in his travel kit & I found a topical antiviral ointment for cold sores (oral hsv) just not sure of which strain of the virus he had as hsv can be type 1 or 2 located on the mouth or genitals. He got angry with me & told me he'd disclosed having hsv when he clearly hadn't. Advice? as he's still denying transmitting to me.

Will multiple misdemeanor DUI convictions prevent me from obtaining my real estate license in RI?
I am thinking of pursuing my Real Estate License. I have three misdemeanor DUI convictions (2008, 2012, 2014). I'll save the excuses and just say I've been sober for 2 years and 2 months. Regardless, they are there. None of them are felonies because the first and third weren't within 5 years. I don't want to go through the expense of taking classes, etc. only to find out I won't be eligible because of my past. I do currently hold another professional license to sell property and casualty insurance in RI and in all 50 states plus DC, and have not had any problems, setbacks or disciplinary actions from any of the State Insurance Departments - aside from CA where they required me to write written explanations for each offense for subjective review. Anyway, do any attorneys familiar with Real Estate in RI know if these convictions would prevent me from obtaining this license? Thanks. The application seems to be...
Dui out of state home state Connecticut ... State of arrest RI .. Is this my first offense or 2nd and will I be going to jail?
I was arrested for a dui in RI it's a long story but I think I was drugged at the bar because I don't remember any thing. It was during spring break ...The thing is I'm from CT and also had a dui two years ago. I took the alcohol classes and the charges where dropped. Will this be my second offense or my first offense and will I go to jail. No one was hurt and there was no accident: I'm just worried sick and can't believe i have to shame my family again. If I was of sound mind I would of just slept it of or got a taxi but I don't remember and that is what truly worries me. the only logically reason I see that cause me to drive was that I was trying to get away from someone. Any information would be great thank you, Sandra

Post DUI License Reinstatement Denied...Appeal Options?
My Rhode Island license was suspended for two years following my third DUI. I applied to have my license reinstated after the two years was up a few months ago and I received a letter from the RI DMV Medical Review Board stating my license would not be reinstated at this time because I did not meet a vague list of requirements relating to my psychiatric and mental health. For instance they say I need a letter from a medical professional certifying I have been in treatment with said professional for 12 months and that I have not consumed any alcohol during that time. My question is whether, how and what I can do about this moving forward. I feel like the letter and requirements are, first and foremost, very vague and unclear. Secondly these requirements were never communicated to me during my sentencing or at any time until my license reinstatement was denied. The idea of waiting another year for my license to be reinstated is heart breaking and moreover I do not understand exactly what they want me to do and how to even go about it. Do I have any options for hiring a lawyer to appeal this decison?
I handle cases like this in California, you need to hire an attorney who does medical dmv hearings in RI
Will I be able to reinstate my privilege to drive in mass w a expired license even tho I'm from Rhode Island??
I am a Rhode Island licensee and I am serving a dui in mass.

Also if I do decide to wait it out what will I need to bring to reinstate my license privilege in mass?
