What standards must be met for a C.I. to be considered a credible witness in court on a drug case?
Someone did a controlled buy on me and I'm taking it to trial, but am curious of whether or not la paz county superior court will even consider her a credible witness. So what are the standards that must be met for a C.I. to be considered a credible witness in court on a drug case?
That is s very complicated question. First, of you are taking the case to trial it will be up to the jury to decide if...
Can I get a bogus felony 4 DUI not just 'set aside' but totally removed off my record after 12 years?
Twelve years ago, I was indicted by a Grand Jury and convicted for a Felony 4 Extreme DUI, sentenced to 3 years in prison. I had never been in trouble before. After my ex husband, a Lt. Sheriff retired and moved out of state, this detective arrived at my house with a search warrant, saying since he can't get his revenge on my ex, that I'd do, and arrested me for a pending DUI, not once, but 6 times. It was all so confusing to me. I tried to tell my appointed defense attorney that I was being set up, but he said, that I should just admit that I have a problem, and take this time to deal with it. After my release, I contacted the AZ MVD Investigations, the report concluded, through court records-found I had 1 Dismissed DUI from 1994. Also found 6 duplicated DUI's on my driving record, submitted within 6 months of each other, all were updates from the same 1994 dismissed DUI. He cleared my driving record and reinstated my drivers license. I waited 12 years because, upon my release, my attorney was now the Superior Court Judge, (retiring this year). No local attorney would touch this. I need justice, what can I do to get this off my record. It's been horrible.
Can you apply to set aside, maybe, but a lot of that depends on what you've been doing since your release. Challenging...
AZ DMV is putting a hold on my CA license.
About 3 yrs ago I got a DUI in AZ. The magistrate told me that since my license was from CA, do whatever CA DMV requires and that would satisfy the court. I did and now the AZ DMV demands that I install a interlock device in my car in order for them to release the hold on me CA license renewal. Is there any way that I can fight this? I completed everything that CA DMV required and submitted all info over to the AZ court and served a weekend in jail. I thought everything was complete until now. Please help
If you got a DUI in Arizona 3 years ago you would have been ordered to do the interlock. There is no exceptions to...
Court appt Attorney w/case overload burn out, settled on court recommended sentencing w/no defense, is now Superior Court Judge
I'm divorced from a Lt. Sheriff, 1995, who wronged fellow officers, and moved out of state. Soon after, I was arrested for a DUI, court dismissed it. Four months later I was presented w/an arrest warrant, stated reason:DUI ?? OR'd by morn. This happened 7 times w/in 6 months. My assigned defense attorney soon advised me I was indicted for EXTREME AGG DUI, that it was a done deal & I would do time. After 2 yrs in DOC, I went to renew my D.L., it was revoked. I contacted the MVD Investigations, who found 1 dismissed DUI on record - period! & 7 duplicated DUI's on my MVD record, which he corrected and reinstated my D.L. Problem has been, no attorney will touch my case & justify the false records, because, my then app t attorney became the Superior Court Judge before my release. ?????
I have some background, but no question.
Will I know if charges have been filed for a DUI?
This is a convoluted situation. On 1/29/16 I was in a near-fatal accident but I was the only one involved. I was taken to the hospital and the cops showed up way later (after I had been given drugs) to do the alc/drug test. I was not under the influence at the time of the accident but I had been taking pain meds for a recent surgery (did not prior to the accident). I got notice from the DMV in April that my DL will be suspended for a min of 90 days and required to take a drug/alc screening. I waited until almost a year to finally take the alc/drug screen to get my DL back and wasnt required to take any classes because I do not have a history of drug/alc use. I believe the accident was caused by a recall on the car but because the police put down "suspected under the Influence" its blocked me from getting a personal injury lawyer. The lady at the alc/drug screening called the dmv and they said state does plan to file charges but hadn't at that time. IT's now been over a year and a few weeks since the accident. How do I find out if charges have been filed? Will I get a notice? How long does it normally take? Ive never received any communication from the state or the police, ever.
The State has up to 7 years to file felony charges, although there could be problems if they delay for too long without...
How long after an accident could i still be charged with a dui?
I was driving home not sure if i was over limit or not, when another vehicle makes a left hand turn in front of me i brake but could not stop from hitting him. I was not arrested, the officer even brought my id back later.
If you were not arrested and no alcohol test was done, you won't be charged with DUI. The direct answer to your...
Can I see blood results from a dui charge in Pima County Arizona?
I was searched entering the USA and Border Patrol called the Sheriff to arrest me and take my blood for a DUI in Pima County, AZ. I let them draw blood but they had no chain of custody for me to sign. My license is valid but my background check says that I have 3 separate DUI charges from that night all of which have the same date as convictions without me going to court and I have a Failure to Appear from three months after. I have no suspension or points on my drivers license.
The attorney that you hire can get discovery from the state, which will include what you are seeking.
