Two duis in 2007 License revoked Caught driving on a revoked in 2013
You should strongly consider speaking to an experienced criminal defense attorney in your area.
I'm an 18 year old girl who got pulled over for going 40 in a 30 mph zone last week. I was asked to do some field sobriety tests, which I failed— I would fail all these tests sober though as I have motor impairment problems (medically documented). I then blew a .092 in the field test, but at the station I blew a .083 on the reliable machine, and that's the BAC they cited me with. I have never gotten any sort of traffic citation before nor have I ever been in trouble with the law. What are the odds that I could get this reduced to something that won't show up as poorly on background checks for jobs and the like? I have a meeting with a lawyer tomorrow, but want to have an idea of what my chances are realistically.
You need to be patient and wait until tomorrow to discuss your situation with your attorney. Hopefully you will be...
I was arrested for a DUI because the officer believed I was under the influence of alcohol even though I blew under the legal limit, I believe I blew a .06. He pulled me over because I was speeding (67 in a 55) and improper lane usage "swerving". I only had one beer that night. I did however take some over the counter sleep meds earlier that night because I was planning on going to sleep but ended up driving my wife around bars because she was celebrating and needed a DD and I told the officer about the sleep meds. Will that hurt me in my case? I feel all charges should be dropped because I was clearly not intoxicated.
Unfortunately, you can blow under the legal limit and still be charged with DUI. That is because there are a few...

Hi, I recently received a DUI in WI and was charged with a 4th offense.My prior 3 were all in IL back in the early 90's.During my WI lawyers research, she learned 1 of them had 2 "Certified statements of disposition" 1 states "Stricken off with leave to reinstate" and the other indicates,2 years later that "the case was dismissed". The WI judge says this DUI was dismissed and can not be held against me and now has charged me with a 3rd offense. And he couldnt understand why it is still part of my IL DMV record as a conviction. Does anybody know why or how I can fix this? Also knowing a 4th will revoke my license for life here in IL. What if I moved to WI and got a license there during the proceedings. If for some reason the courts found me guilty, whose DMV penatly would I have to follow?
Most likely there is a statutory summary suspension associated with the DUI. Even though the DUI was dismissed the SSS...
In 2012 I recieved a DUI in WI, which was considered a 4th (others in IL early 90's) Right now we are looking at a trial date. Or taking a 3rd DUI plea with instant appeal.Before taking this plea, I need to know what this means for my IL license. I won the admin hearing due to ?'s on the blood draw. If I pled guilty would the DMV than revoke my license or wait till the suppression appeal is finished? Also I have alot of questions on my prior DUIs. 1 of them though the DMV report states conviction, I have a certified disposition from 92 saying case was SOL. than another disposition staying same case was dismissed. Is there anyway I can get this DUI off my record? If so can you help me or where would I go and do to do this?
If you enter a guilty plea on the third, they will automatically revoke your license for a period of time that depends...
This is my first DUI and given that if you have one you don't qualify for deferred action in the first place, now that I've been approved and have my license could it be taken away? Would I stand deportation if I were to plead guilty in court?
Is this an immigration question? Start again.
