What are penalties typically imposed for failure to complete DUI deferral program in West Virginia?
I opted for the first offense, non-aggravated DUI deferral, which requires 185 days with an interlock system on my steering wheel. I have a secondary heading in a month and a half, where my progress will be evaluated. If I only have ~30 days completed by that point, will they file a motion for failure to complete the program, thus entering the guilty plea, and if so, what are the typical additional penalties imposed? Will it likely include jail time? Thanks
First, it’s a 165 not a 185. Second, courts typically will afford more time to complete the program if the citizen is...

Do Virginia and West Virginia share DUI laws?
Reason asking, I got a dui in Va Oct of 2006. When i checked my Wv driving record 3 months later, my license was clean, no points, no convictions, nothing. At court they said my Va drivers license would be suspended, i dont have a Va license. But my Wv license was never hit with anything. I am still confused, i know its been awhile, but should i fear driving in Va? i have 3 copies of my driving record in the car at all times (3 done over a year after my conviction).

Personal DUI in WV with PA CDL?
first and foremost, i am a Pennsylvania resident with a CDL, but i rent a place in WV where the incident occurred. i had a minor accident in my personal car due to severe weather. it didn't cause any property damage or anything, just the car itself. instead of walking 1/4mi home like a smart person, i fell asleep in the car. well, someone called the police and i was arrested for "Aggravated DUI"(BAC 0.2x). ive done a lot of googling, and from what i understand this would probably be treated as a first offense, despite my three priors(two first offenses in PA 1999, one second offense in WV 2005). where im confused is with the license suspension part of it. WV has a DMV hearing and a criminal hearing separately. im told that even if i can get the criminal charges reduced, i still have to face the DMV part of it, which is nearly impossible to beat, and will result in a license suspension. however, PA doesnt have this seperate DMV hearing. if its dismissed/reduced in criminal court, its dismissed/reduced altogether. if i can manage to get the criminal charges reduced, how will this affect my Pennsylvania license?
While not a 100%, It’s highly likely that when the WV DMV takes your CDL privilege here for life (due to prior(s)),...
