How will a BWI in Missouri at Lake of the Ozarks effect my Illinois Commercial Drivers' license?
I was pulled over and given a breathalyzer after dark on Lake Ozark. I failed the breathalyzer and was issues a couple other tickets before I was released by the officer. He assured my any BWI charges would not mess with my Illinois Drivers' license and Commercial Drivers' license, I would anjoy hearing that from a lawyer with more knowledge of this type of situation. Thank you.
Almost anything can be fatal to a CDL! Don't take legal advice from cops! Talk to a lawyer immediately.
How can i apply for license reinstatement without retaking my dui classes/risk education if the counseling facility lost copies?
I received 2 underage DUIs at age 18 back in '07. Was not sentenced until after dui laws had changed, so license was revoked for 5 yrs. Successfully completed all terms to my probation and case was closed satisfactory in 2012. My life has been incredibly rough without the ability to drive. Spoke to a hearing officer at the DMV, who said I needed all copies from my dui evaluation & risk education. The counseling facility I did them at said they either lost or threw out my file(only 3 years after) and was told legally they had to keep records 5-7 yrs. I only have my eval & part of my risk ed copies but was told I'd have to redo everything before a reinstatment hearing. My probation case file @Dupage shows I completed everything, so why isn't that enough? I can lose my new, good job because im required to travel when needed. Tried to find counseling but the schedules conflict w/my work hours. the terms of my salary require open avail., so if i ask for 1 night off a week, my salary decreases. I don't want to lose another good job. I haven't been in any trouble since these DUIs 10 years ago. I am also a single mom, living alone, & can't afford counseling w/paying for taxis to get there
Almost Everything you need might be in the probation department’s file. Cracking that file is possible, but not simple....

Do I have any rights or steps I can take.
I was forced to take a drug test after a person who I had an O.O.P against called my job and said I used marijuana. I was told I had no choice and was taken to take a drug test. Though they said there would be an investigation, I was not given paperwork or answers regarding the investigation until they called to inform me I was terminated. Was this done correctly or were policies broken?
This is an employment law question. I'll change the category for you and suggest you take your policy manual from work...
Chances of getting DUI reduced after blowing a .083 in Illinois?
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...
Arrested for DUI, Blew UNDER the legal limit
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...
