Can a pending PDC charge in one state affect the trial/sentencing or lead to a probation violation for a DWI conviction in VA?
I was charged with Public Disorderly Conduct in Oct '10 in S. Carolina while on vacation. I have an attorney and am fighting it. In the meantime I was charged with a DWI 1st Offense, BAC >.20% in Virginia (where I live) in Feb '11. I haven't heard yet from my attorney in SC about the PDC charge. My court date for the DWI in Virginia is in April and it looks like I will probably be facing a 1-yr suspended or restricted license along with 180 days in jail with 170 suspended, amounting to 10 days in jail. Since I will be convicted for my DWI in VA prior to any sentencing for the PDC in SC, could a PDC conviction in SC affect anything with my DWI case in VA? Will I be violating probation for my DWI conviction in VA if I'm later convicted of PDC in SC, even though the PDC charge came 1st?
The short answer is yes, a subsequent conviction on the South Carolina case could be deemed a probation violation on...
What do I do if I missed my court date and a bench warrant has been issued?
I thought that my hearings were scheduled for May 19th but after reviewing the court's docket, my cases were heard on Wedneday the 5th. What do I do? I have two small children and can't go to jail. This was an error on my part as one of the summons had a court date of May 19th and I assumed that they would all be heard on this day.
The laws on a situation like this have some small variance from state to state, but in general, missing a court date...
Applying for US Citizenship with DWI record (PBJ for 1 day unsupervised) in 2006.
I consulted with a Immigration attorney about applying for my Citizenship with DWI record in 2006. He advised that I will still need to tell the immigration that I was arrested for DWI. If I hire him, i will need to pay him. My question is, can I still apply for US Citizenship without an attorney but still report that I was arrest for DUI so I can save some attorney's fees. Your answer will be appreciated. Thank you!
I do not do immigration law ,however, my opinion is that the dui will have little to no effect based on the case of...
Lake County CA - minor DUI BAC >05%
I'm from VA and got this ticket in CA while visiting. My BAC was .06%. I realize I have lost the right to license in CA for 1 year and have to have the right reinstated in 1 year. I don't ever plan to obtain a license in CA but will do what I have to do. It is an infraction but I have a mandatory appearance in a couple weeks. Obviously I don't plan on flying to CA to appear andpay the fine. I keep getting the run around from lawyers in the easiest way to accept responsibility, have a lawyer appear in court and pay the fine. HELP.
I recommend that you contact this fellow for advice who used to practice law in Virginia but now has his practice out...

I got charge with a DUI and I have dentures. Can the dentures and the adhesive trap alcohol causing me to have a higher BAC?
At the scene I blew a .18 and by the time I got to the jailhouse I blew a .14. I passed all the field sobriety test and I was driving perfectly fine. In fact the only reason why I was pulled over was because third brake light was out. Will my dentures help prove my innocence?
Prove your innocence? No. Be a factor that might impact the courts decision on your case? Maybe. You really...
Can I get my license back? Looking for the best lawyer.
Hi, I was convicted of DWI and refusal of blood sample in VA. I got the DWI charge dismissed and expunged but was convicted of the refusal charge which carries a one year license suspension. My license has been suspended for 8 months now and I have had enough, I am a full time student and need to be driving. Is there any way I can get my license back now, ask the court for some sort of clemency? I am ready to hire any attorney who could help me in this endeavor.
When one is convicted of Refusal of Tests, the punishment is a one year license revocation. There are no provisions...
