I got a dui 3rd in Maryland ,December 2013, I did 90 days rehab, and about 115 aa meetings
was found guilty , 60 days with ,50 suspended and 18 months supervised probation.my lawyer immediately filed a motion to modify sentence to be held sub curia , which the judge granted. 2 weeks later va. my home state, suspended ,my licence for 3 years.it was my understanding that Virginia could not do anything because the case is not closed yet, and in complete control of the Maryland judge because of the sub curia ruling. if I get a lawyer and petition Virginia dmv ,can I get my licence back ?if not when and if the guilty verdict is changed can I get it back.? thanks
Felony or not does not matter to dmv. They count convictions. Three dui firsts would be a three year suspension. Dmv...
My son got charged for the first time in his life with DUI. Charges dropped vs Convicted for a lessen charge.
Is it a better deal to get a lessen charge or charges dropped with a plea bargain? I am just asking because if he gets a plea bargain that DUI charge and arrest will remain on his record forever, but if he gets disorderly conduct he will be convicted but will not look bad as a DUI. I just need any suggestions.
It is better to have the charges dropped. However, that's not the way the system works. You don't get to just pick your...
How far off road do you have to be to not be charged of actual physical control/dui of a vehicle that wouldn't start/being towed
Had an accident on motorcycle. Walked back up to where I was due to lack of cell service and zero passing motorists. Had drinks to calm nerves. Witnesses to not drinking prior to accident/drinking post accident. Went to scene 2 hours later to be towed out with someone's vehicle and police arrived while I was steering the bike out of the embankment. Keys in ignition but motorcycle wouldn't run. Witnesses to dead battery as well. I was down far enough that I couldn't put the bike on the kickstand and that it wouldn't come out of the embankment. Preformed FST on downhill slope and blew .12 and .10 after arrest at station. Thanks.
So were you sitting on Motorcycle? or walking next to it? Regardless, you should fight this case. Prosecutor could...
On a field sobriety test in Virginia, does it matter if the test was given on an uneven surface?
I was charged with a dui when officers stopped while my motorcycle was being pulled out by a truck. I was steering but the engine was off. I was then directed to perform the field test on the road next to his car. The road was sloped downhill. I blew a .10 at the station
It matters for a motion to quash arrest which would have taken place before the test at the station.
Is "arrested" in the signature line on a Virginia Uniform Summons valid?
I was recently charged with section 18.2-266 of the code of Virginia. My B.A.C. was .10. In the signature line under "I promise to appear at the time and place shown above. Signing this summons is not an admission of guilt. I certify that my current mailing address is as shown above." I have received summons before and always signed every single one.
Yes. Since you were arrested, you would have been released by the Magistrate by signing a bond/bail release form,...

How will a dismissed/expunged DUI affect citizenship?
I was charged with a DWI first offense in Fairfax County VA. The officer made a mistake by arresting me and I hired a lawyer. The case was obviously dismissed by the judge and the charges expunged. I am a US permanent resident and am now eligible for citizenship, do I have to mention this incident on my N-400 (because my case was dismissed and expunged therefore it "legally" never happened). Furthermore, am I going to face any problems with obtaining my citizenship?
The N-400 specifically asks if you've ever been arrested or cited - don't try to hide anything just because it was...
