Probation Revocation: 3-Year Suspended Sentence! Do I have to serve the whole 3 years??
Probation Revocated, 3 year original, suspended sentence, never been in MO DOC before. No shock or treatment programs. I'm hearing I have to serve 65%, would that be accurate? Lawyer didn't push for a 120 program like I had hoped for.
MDOC determines when you are eligible for parole, and what percentage of your sentence you serve.
What does it mean to consent to probation revocation?
What does it mean to consent to revocation?
It means you agree to forgo your right to a hearing and consent to having the judge sentence you. Typically a deal...
Is it probable cause or reasonable suspicion to avoid a sobriety checkpoint?
If someone were to turn into a gas station parking lot and turn onto another street to avoid going through the checkpoint, would that be enough evidence a cop needs to make a stop? It could be proven that the checkpoint is invincible from this angle.
Absolutely it is probable cause for a stop.
Is a third DWI always a felony?
I just received my third DWI and just wanted to prepare myself for the outcome I also have a child that I have partial custody of and was wondering if his father could get full custody if I were to go to prison.
Please review Section 577.023, RSMo. It will always be a felony if the prosecutor decides to charge it as a felony and...
DUI from other state never showed up on driving record
In August of 2002 I got a DUI in Illinois but had a Missouri license. My Illinois lawyer told me Illinois couldn't suspend my Missouri license but that they could suspend it when Illinois sent the information to Missouri. It was never suspended and it isn't on my driving record. I was just at the dmv to update my address and heard them asking people if their license has ever been suspended or revoked. This must be something new they are asking because I've never been asked this question. When I renew my license in 2019 I am not sure how to answer this question. My license hasn't ever been suspended but my driving privileges in Illinois were taken away for 3 months. I am very confused but also don't want to bring it up if I don't have to, as it's been 13 years.
This is probably better posed to a MO lawyer but my suspicion is that when you apply for renewal MO will run PDPS and "...
Can a drug admission at a hospital be strong enough to be used against you in court?
A good friend of mine recently got himself into trouble. He was operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated (not on alcohol), and when he crashed (not terribly bad accident just fender bender) he was taken out of the car, cuffed, sat on the sidewalk and talked to for a bit, and then taken to a hospital. Apparently he wasn't actually arrested since when he left the hospital there was no bail and he ended up going straight home (had to have a sober ride pick him up). While he was in the hospital however, apparently he admitted to taking a drug earlier that day before the accident and it states he admitted this in a hospital document. We are wondering if this could be used against him in court to turn his charge into a DWI?
Admissions can be used against him if the city subpoenas the medical person to testify at a trial. His blood work...
Will a motion to suppress work.
I was arrested for dui. The officers probable cause is that I ran a red light that doesn't exist(I have good photos and videos to prove it). The real reason the cop pulled me over is due to my avoidance to an upcoming sobriety checkpoint. I drove through a business parking lot and then turned onto another main road. All of my turns were legal.
I suspect the officer's story is different than yours. However, if your story is accurate, you have a good suppression...
