What charge should be given for client? 2nd DUI or 5th DUI
Client got 3 dui's in the 80's and 90's. Then in 2010 he got another DUI and was charged with his 1st DUI after his wife had passed away. He just got another one in April and they charged him with his 5th. I understand the courts changed the laws in 2013 to go back a lifetime. However, he got his 1st DUI in 2010 which means he should fall into the 10 year wash out or look back period. And by my feeling should be charged with a 2nd DUI not 5th. Please advise.
Up to the prosecutor and defense attorney to review if not properly charged.
Help me understand Montana's 10 year washout period or look back period for my friends DUI charge?
I am sorry. I wrote it too fast in my last question and not sure how to correct it. Here is my question written correctly. My family are all attorneys and mom a federal judge. However, they do not deal with criminal law. They are also retired and no longer practice. My friend got 3 DUI's in the 80's and 90's. Then in 2010 he was charged with a 1st DUI right after his wife passed away. Then in April of 2015 he got another DUI which they charged him with a 5th DUI. But looking at the laws passed in 2013 he should fall in the 10 year wash out or look back period. Which means this should be his 2nd DUI in Montana not his 5th. Please explain if you know the answer.
The ten year 'look back' period to which you refer only applies to a second offense. It used to apply to the second and...

Can DUIs be expunged from my background record in the state of Montana?
I've made the mistake to drive while under the influence and gotten two DUIS. I knew better an I'm not an alcoholic, I just made the dumb decision to drive. I'm working towards earning my A.A.S. degree in Veterinary Technology and I'm afraid I won't be able to graduate or get jobs at vet clinics with two duis on my record. I've learned my lesson.
Don't practice law in Montana, but my brief look at the Montana statutes seems to indicate that convictions cannot be...

Will I face any repercussions from not completing a chemical dependency evaluation on an out-of-state DUI?
I had a aggravated, first-offense DUI in North Dakota and currently live in Montana. Conditions were unsupervised probation for 9 months, chemical dependency evaluation, fine payment, 2 days in jail, and violate no criminal laws for 9 months. I paid all fees and served the 2 days, and on the criminal cases records search, my offenses are listed as a closed status. I'd rather not pay to have an assessment done if it is not going to have any effect on me.
