Can I get out of drug court?
Took deal for one year probation and lose license after two ovi in two months took deal for both. Only violations ever had. Judge added that I had to get evaluated for drug court after I took plea deal. Got evaluated at tasc and the decided I needed it. It is 7 appointments through out the week and caused me to lose job. I need out of it.
You took a deal to avoid a stronger sentence and conviction. Don't you think you'd lose your job if you were convicted?...
What if the officer recorded the wrong address and did not record BAC on OVI ticket?
My husband swerved to miss a deer in extreme foggy conditions and was in an accident, which included no other vehicles. He took a breathalyzer when asked but the officer did not record his BAC on the ticket, but he DID site him for an OVI and Failure to Control. Do these errors give him a chance to fight the charges?
Yes and No. Will you beat this OVI, merely because of those two facts, not likely. BUT, those two errors reveal that...
Can multiple DUIs be sealed/expunged?
Between 1990 and 1999, I pleaded "no contest" to three DUI's (two in Ohio and one in Virginia). Each was a misdemeanor. I complied with all fines and courts' sentencing. These are now affecting life insurance rates and I would like to not have to report them. I was a different person and it was a different time. Are these going to continue to haunt me for the rest of my life?
DUI's can not be expunged under Ohio law. You would need to consult with a Virginia attorney to determine if your...

Is there a way to expedite forensic lab testing of a drug for an F5 charge of possession of illegal drug?
It might be a legal drug. It might not be a drug at all. It could be an illegal drug... I have no idea. My lawyer says that if it's what the courts think it is, I will get probation.... It's just really pissing me off though that I have to wait to determine if I'm innocent or not. I want to get done with this as soon as possible and determine if I need to make any immediate life changes or not. If I get probation, I'll probably need to quit my job, since I work 7:00 am to 5:30 pm Mon-Fri as a GM, and it's a non-negotiable schedule, and sometimes it's more or less if I'm lucky. My next pretrial and trial dates have been set 3 months in advance last month... So November.... It's totally unfair that I don't know if I'm innocent or guilty, and the lab basically has had 60+ days already and it still isn't tested. Can I send money somewhere to speed up the process??? I honestly don't know what to do until November. What should I be doing at this point?
Not really. Unfortunately labs across the state are backed up. I'm not aware of anything you can do - or your...
What should I expect in court?
I smoked weed before I left the house to go and help a friend move or else her stuff was going to get thrown out. 3 or 4 hours have past and we still smelled like weed and as we was leaving that town I got pulled over. With us smelling like that she made me get out and do sobriety tests asked me questions and I admitted to smoking before I left the house then searched me and put me in cuffs and put me in the back of the car. She said she was arresting me for ovi and my lisence plate wasnt were it needed to be. I was the only one detained and they didn't keep me over night because I coaperated. I submitted to a drug test too. What should I expect in court? This would be my first offense and first time getting arrested. Will they send me to jail?
An OVI really isn't a laughing matter. You should get an attorney. With the help of an attorney it is likely you can...
