1990 - FL License was suspended for five yrs. DUI Then it was revoked. I moved to Kansas. Can I get a letter of completion
from Florida to get my Kansas License?
Good question, but more information is needed. Do you know why it was revoked? What do you need to do to reinstate...
Will i still loose my license even though it's been 9 months since my dui arrest?
I was arrested for a dui last july but continued to be incarcerated up until January of this year. Was given time served for the charge and was released. I still have my license and they are still showing valid with the g.a. dds. It appears the court hasn't sent it in to dmv. is it possible me serving that time detered the court from sending it in to the dmv? I have recently moved back to kansas and have already transfered my g.a license to a kansas license..
Incarceration has nothing to do with your license. Sounds like you got lucky, regarding your license anyway.
Anyway to avoid jail time for a DWS conviction? License reinstated shortly after arrest, prosecutor still wants me to serve time
I am trying to fight a DWS charge in KS. If convicted, will be my second conviction and the prosecutor wants me to do 5 days in jail, plus pay a fine. I honestly had no idea my license was suspended when I got pulled over the first time back in Aug 2012. Almost a year prior I pled guilty to not having insurance. At the time I did not know that a guilty plea would result in suspension. I did not get the notice of suspension, and therefore continued to drive. After getting arrested for DWS, I pled no contest and an additional 6 months was added to my suspension. I was set to be reinstated Feb 10th, I mailed my money late Jan, assumed it would be processed in time. On Feb 19th, I was stopped, my license still in suspension. Looking at jail time. Have lawyer, but they are set on jail for me.
I am glad you have an attorney. You need to be addressing these questions to him. It is unusual for the prosecutor to...
I got a DUI in Kansas
Does the officer that arrested me have a time limit to turn in a complete notice of suspension or revocation form and any driver license taken into possession, with a sworn report to the DMV? I got arrested 7-3-2016 today is 7-18-16. I have called the administrative hearing regarding my request for a hearing. And they told me they have received my request but they said that the officer has not sent anything on behalf my DUI. So they pretty much don't have nothing on my DL. My 30 day paper will expired in 2 weeks. So does the officer have a time limit to turn that in?
These matters are mandated by state law so you should talk to a Kansas lawyer who handles criminal matters this...
I got a DUI
I'm in Kansas. My arrest was July 3. Today is July 14. Well 2 days after my arrest for DUI the officer that arrested me got in a accident and killed a lady. I believe it was he's fault and I think he is on administrative leave right now. So I requested my hearing to the administrative hearing in Topeka. I send in my $50 and asking for the officer to be in my hearing. Well I called the administrative Hearing and they keep telling me they don't have nothing on my DL that nothing is being turn in. I called the court and they said that no report has being made either. I only have 30 days before my DL gets suspended.
What is your question? If it is about the hearing, make sure you get verification that you actually tried to schedule...
DUI questions
I am being charged with DUI even though I wasn't seen driving. I lied for my boyfriend at the time who had an accident behind me. I claimed something like a cat or dog came across the road and caused him to swerve into a fixed object. By the time police and ambulance services came, my car was parked in a parking lot with the keys/FOB in the front flap of my purse. My car doesn't operate using a key-it uses a FOB, the hood was cold and no GPS was pulled out of it showing when it was last operated. There was mass confusion on the scene-my then boyfriend had a head injury and the cop who started in on me wasn't the original cop on the scene. We were told about the confusion from the tow truck people I called. I refused to do any field sobriety tests. I wasn't allowed to leave and was placed in handcuffs. It was a custody. I had a blood test done. I know for a fact they used an alcohol swab because I have a severe aversion to needles. It came out .08. At that point, they said I wasn't in custody and free to go-releasing me to drive. 7 mos. ltr., I get the citation in the mail. Is it normal to allow someone under the suspicion of DUI to just leave and get back in a car to drive home?
It is atypical, and probably good for your defense, especially during cross-examination. However, though atypical,...
Will I be drug tested for a MIP in the state of Kansas?
I was driving my friend home from a party and he had a case of beer in the car. I was pulled over for speeding and the officer saw the beer in plain sight and searched the entire car. He found drug paraphernalia, but my friend took responsibility for it because it was not mine and I had not used it. We were both issued a citation for an MIP since the beer was in my vehicle, but I had passed the breathalyzer test while my friend did not. My court case is in a month and I was wondering if I can expect a drug screening any time between now and then? And is there any use in fighting the case? Thank you any advice is appreciated
No, generally you wont be required to test prior to your first appearance. Whether or not you will be required to do so...
