How do you transfer DUI charges from Colorado to South Carolina and how soon?
My daughter lives in Colorado had first offence DUI Dec 2015. Unfortunately has 8 classes left due to financial problems. Now she finds herself homeless and needs to move to South Carolina with me.
You cannot do that. The criminal justice system is not set up for the convenience of the accused.
Will I be able to get a ticket case for a DUI continued?
I recently had an accident involving only myself, and was ticketed for a DUI. I don't have the money to pay the hefty ticket right now. What are the chances a lawyer will be able to get the case continued for a while until I can get the money together?
You do not want to go it alone on a DUI. You would be well advised to hire a criminal defense attorney who handles DUI,...
I missed a court date for DUI by less than a month, because I just moved and didn't change my address with the court in time.
I had a car accident in April of 2014. While at the hospital somehow the office found out I take prescription pain medicine. I was charged with DUI and blood was drawn. I went to my first court date that was on the ticket. The results of the blood test were not back. The case was put on hold till they come back. Six months later I went and checked on the case and was told the test where still not back, so six or so months later I checked again. The test where still not back. I moved in July of 2016. The accadent was over 2 years ago at that point. I went to the DMV to have my address changed on my license and was told that they had been supended. The trial was in September of 2016. I can't find any information about the blood test. I had not taken any pain medicine the day of the accident. It had been almost 17 hours since I had any. I was not under the influence at all. I applied for an appeal, but have not heard anything about it yet. I got a letter today saying that I have to either pay $100.00 or turn my licenses in by 12/18. I have never been in any trouble at all and don't feel that the mistake of not changing my address in time should ruin my life. Please help!!
I suggest you hire a criminal defense attorney that deals with DWI/DWI, as unless you understand criminal procedure and...
DUI reduced to reckless driving.
I'm a nurse that was charged with dui with hopes that I can get it reduced to reckless driving. I read in a previous post that this is only a traffic violation and not a criminal offense. Is this correct and it will not show up on a background check.
Depending on how the background check is run, this may certainly show up. I would advise a criminal defense lawyer who...
Can I get a mandated order lifted due to case circumstance?
Arrested for DUI in Greenville, SC in 2006. Refused to blow. Found not guilty.Did not attend ADSAP. Still have a block on DL in SC, and any other state when trying to get CDL. I am from Florida, have a Florida DL, and had the DL at the time. I still have the Fl. DL. I have tried several times to get what information I need to attend ADSAP, but have received no preapproved clinics I can attend, and also told I could not attend in SC. I want to get this removed. I have not received any traffic infractions since that time. I will offer no testimony to the original case, but I do want to have my verdict understood as Not Guilty. Can this be overturned so I can go on and get my CDL?
Who told you that you cannot attend in SC? Are you a resident of Fl now or of SC? There is plenty of information on the...
