The offense occurred in 2007. All fines were paid, courses attended, and suspensions imposed were served. Is there a limit on when I could have to do something different with this? Is there a statute of limitations for them revisiting it?
This does not make sense. Procedendo is a writ from a higher court ordering a lower court to render a judgment, when...
You plead guilty to the dui that you received on Feb 1st first then can the state raise the first dui from Jan 1st to a dui 2nd if you was not convicted of the Jan 1st at the time of the arrest?
They can, and usually will, try to enhance the "first in time" DUI charge in situations like the one you describe....
I have had the interlock device in my car for a month now and have never blown anything but a PASS. This morning when I went to start my car I blew a violation/fail. I did brush my teeth and know that can cause the fail. But, last night I went to a Christmas party and did have three drinks and made sure I drank water and had a designated driver. Could this have caused the violation? If so will it affect my non-adjudication? I had my roommate drive me to work rather than risk it. I know alcohol can stay in your system for a while but I am having a slight panic attack thinking that I have just ruined everything. Any advice will help.
You need to contact the attorney that handled your case and advise them of the facts. Whether it will affect your non-...
Pulled over for failure to use turn signal in an appropriate time to turn ratio. Pled guilty to DUI. Did three months. License not suspended at that time. Received 2 yrs probation, community service, fines etc. Upon release was unable to fulfill states requirements. Tried repeatedly to check in within 24hrs. Probation officer never available. Alternate PO not available. Living on streets of Denver. No money, no car, nowhere to go, nothing to eat for a week. Left state. That was over 11 yrs ago. License suspended now. Very stable now. Would very much like to have a valid drivers license. My question is > Do I still have to fulfill CO obligation in order to get a valid license in MS after 11yrs?
You will need to clear up your issues in CO. Almost all DMVs throughout the country share information through the...
My husband is charged with DUI. I was the extremely drunk one and we were having an argument outside. the people surrounding us called the cops about noise. The cops never saw him driving but he admitted to driving and blew over the limit. Our attorney is recommending a plea deal where he pleads guilty to DUI but receives the bare minimum in punishment. The attorney has said that the arresting officer's account is very sympathetic towards him and that she even mentions he did not appear drunk and passed the field sobriety tests but based on his answers, she gave him the breath-test. I know he broke the law in trying to take care of me. Do you think the prosecutor might agree to a lesser charge with the same punishments if I talk to her and explain what it will do to our kids and my husband
Your husband is represented. It would be unethical to give him legal advice. Talk to your attorney
My son was arrested for DUI. passed 4 breath tests and 4 field sobriety tests. He was then charged with DUI-other. He requested a blood test but when they got to hospital, officer said it would cost $365 for the blood test. My son is in college and didn't have that kind of money on him and was not allowed to contact anyone to help pay it. He has refused plea deal and case going to trial. Cost to date $6000 with $1200 in court costs now due. Financial hardship has caused him to drop out of school to pay expenses.
Is the amount for the blood test reasonable? Probably.
I was recently charged with dui. I was going 16 over and I saw the cops lights turn on. when I pulled over he said he saw me throwing a joint out the window. he searched me and my car and even the trunk which I believe is illegal without my consent and he didn't find any incriminating evidence. the only test he ran was the eye test which I believe I passed based on his reaction. he also broke my watch which I had just bought and was on my way back from getting. is this case possible to beat and what would you do to beat it?
Please hire an attorney. We see people day in and day out in justice court trying to represent themselves and even when...
