My friend got an MIP/C in wenatchee wa whats the worst that can happen?
She was on her way to chelan wa for a trip she lives on the west coast. She only blew a .061. This is her first offense. The cop found alcohol in the car. The driver wasn't drinking or pulled over that. He was pulled over for a tail light being out. She was nice to the cop and follow directions. There was 3 other people in the car who got MIP/C's. They weren't even arrested but were issued tickets of course. Is there anything she can do before she gets to court to make her offense look not as bad? what is the worst that can happen? what should she have prepared for court? does she absolutely need a lawyer?
MIP/C is a gross misdeanor, which is punishable up to 1 year in jail and a $5,000 fine. That is the maximum criminal...
My husband received a DUI and he only blew a .07. They reduced it to a 1st negligent. Should he fight this or just take it?
Details to the question... They pulled him over because of a headlight issue. The weather was snowy and icy. They claim he took a long time to pull over. He did not pass the Field test. I believe because of the weather these reason of him not pulling over very fast was due to safety and the ground conditions I feel were unsafe for him to even pass a field test. They gave him a neg 1. What are his chances of fighting this charge if he took it to jury? OR should he just take it and move on?
There are plusses and minuses in taking the offer. It would appear, based on the facts as you state them, that he was...
How should I explain Negligent Driving on my medical school appllication?
Field on application asks: Have you ever been convicted of a misdemeanor or felony? Please provide a brief explanation. This is what I plan to state: Convicted of Negligent Driving in Washington State in September, 2003. Plea bargain after being arrested for DUI on July 4, 2003. Pulled over after rushing to turn left on a yellow light. Consented to field sobriety test and BAC under legal limit. Charges reduced to Negligent Driving 1. Am I giving too much or too little information?
Seems to me you are really asking two questions: what is the legal definition of neg driving, and what should I say on...
WIll a DUI In Pittsburgh carry over to Seattle?
I have a friend that has several DUIs in Pitsburh that prevents him from having a drivers license. He's off of probation already and can leave pittsburgh to come to seattle. Will he be able to get a drivers license in seattle or will his DUI follow him here and prevent him from getting a license?
Each State has it's own licensing department and has it's own laws and rules. The various State's DMV/DOLs will...
Charged with DUI (blew .000 / no drug test given /on no medication) and Reckless Driving. -Is this Malicious Prosecution ?
I was cited for DUI after making an illegal U-Turn while returning from a musical performance at 1 AM. Rookie officer said "it was not reckless but I will cite you for the traffic infraction." The officer believed I was impaired and took me in. I blew a .000 but was then handed a DUI. "Why ?" "Because I think you are on drugs..." I was refused a blood draw because the officer had worked an 18 hour shift and was tired." (admitted on video multiple times) While in the holding cell I overheard a senior officer tell the rookie to 'add something else' as the DUI was tenuous, so later at the arraignment I was charged with DUI and Reckless Driving despite the U-Turn appearing very benign on patrol car dash cam with no traffic / people present. I procured a top-tier attorney who then referred me to a top-tier DUI specialist. After 6 months of anxiety and not sleeping, both charges were dismissed just before this week's scheduled motion hearing. Best possible outcome for me but I am still out over $8000 in legal fees and drug tests to help prove my innocence. Do I have any recourse for Malicious Prosecution, etc ? Thank you very much for any advice,
I don't think their is a cause of action here. Good luck
International travel after DUI was dropped to Reckless?
I was convicted of Reckless driving from a DUI arrest 5 years ago. Are there any countries other than Canada that I can no longer visit? Do I need to disclose the arrest on the customs form when entering a country via air?
More information is needed in order to provide a meaningful response. Beyond that, your question needs to be crafted...
If my DUI cases all show closed, can they still come after me for fines.
I did a bankruptcy and my lawyer didn’t tell me after my bankruptcy was up I would have to pay my court fines again. He is now telling me he doesn’t think I have to because they just closed all my cases.
Fines and penalties are not dischargeable. So a bankruptcy will not discharge those items UNLESS you received a...
