I ended up getting caught in a road block after a 12 hour shift, I went to go pick up my son and after I got him I had to pick up my wife. The cop that told me to get out of the car because my eyes were red that's what he said at least gave me the test after i told him about my foot condition. I believe the footage would prove to my wife at least that i was not intoxicated because i recently found out that being tired and driving is the same as being drunk and driving. If its not to late I would love to reopen this case because my license is my way of living Thank you hope to hear from someone soon
I don't think scientific studies bear out the fact that drunk driving and tired driving are exactly the same. So,...
I have had two DUI's in the state of SC. The first was in 2005 and the second just recently in 2014 (9 yrs). When I was pulled over for the 2nd DUI the officer said if I took the breathalyzer, he would only charge me with a DUI 1st instead of DUI 2nd. So I blew and it was a 0.10. I had a bench trial and went to court. At the court date, the charge was a DUI 1st offense and I received a fine of $400.00, ADSAP class attendance, and SR22 insurance. I got a letter in the mail stating that my license was suspended for a year and after the suspension I would need to have an Ignition Interlock system installed in my car. Neither the suspension or the Ignition interlock was mentioned at the court date, and my charge is still a DUI 1st offense. Can they change it after the bench trial?
The court addressed the direct criminal consequences of the offense. The license suspension is an administrative...
In south Carolina, it seems that there was an arrest made but charges were never filed. How can one go 15 years and never had this pop up until recently, there had been several background checks made in those 15 years. What can be done to get this removed/resolved? How does one handle an issue such as this?
If the warrant is legitimate then it will need to be vacated by the issuing Court. Administrative errors in lodging...
arrested in September for DUI. I refused to blow because I was not intoxicated or had a drink. I had a class b cdl license that was suspended. In march my 6 month suspension was up and got my regular drivers license. Just had court last week and they dropped my dui charge to wreckless driving. Since I was not convicted of a DUI can I get my cdl license back now or do I have to wait 9 months?
I'm not sure but if an AVVO DUI lawyer from SC doesn't respond, consider calling a local SC DUI lawyer and ask this...
Over 20 years ago I received a DUI in NC. And over 10 in SC . Was arrested in NC in Jan in NC. I was pulled for a expired tag
I was arrested because the police said I smelled like alcohol and arrested and taken to do the breath test and blew three times. 1st , I was in a borrowed car & didnt know the tag was bad and second the machine didn't register so I got a refusual. I have been to court twice and both times the policemen didn't show. The prosecutor is now wanting to supeona the man because he no longer works for the police force. What will happen to me if he comes and what should I do. Also unfortunately I missed the 10 day window DMV. I had to get a public defender because I lost my job on account of the arrest . I am terrified. I had to move to SC to stay at my dads on account of this last arrest.
Depends where in the case you're at. What type of hearing is it? What does your PD say? Speak to the PD, they'll...
I was told that the arresting officer did not videotape my face during sobriety test. They have reduced it to wreckless driving
I was told that I could request a jury trial and everything would be dropped. My counselor told me the only way they would reduce it to wreckless driving is if this is true.
You should hire an attorney to handle this matter for you. If there is no video of you in the DUI you should be able to...
Will I be able to get SC license after DWI record in North Carolina (license reinstated there). Will I have to get SR 22?
Licensed suspended in July 2013 per DWI conviction. License can be reinstated in July 2014. Looking to move to SC for a job in Winter/Spring 2015. Will I have to get SR 22 to have a license in SC, even though it wasn't required in NC?
The general rule is for a restricted license, you'll need an SR22, but the rules could be different in SC
