I know that you can sign a plea in abeyance. If I do I want to know how much that is going to cost me, so when I get in the court room I can pay either all of it all up front, or make payments. What would the cost of classes be if there is any? And would they consider that I only blew a .01? Also, If I don't sign a plea in abeyance is the ticket going to be cheaper? I read somewhere that it would be only $90, if thats the case, which is the better ticket to take?
A few hundred in total costs. If you hire a lawyer they might be able to clear it and convert some of those costs into...
My family member was driving last night and while looking to make a lane change he crossed the median and then over corrected and lost control of the vehicle and rolled several times. After the accident they couldn't find his eye glasses. He would be considered legally blind without his glasses and after rolling the car he was really shook up. He was asked to do a field sobriety test and failed. He told the officers he had taken prescription medicine the night before (24 hours earlier). They placed him under arrest for a DUI but did not take him to jail. At the hospital the police took blood samples. Will the blood test be able to show how long ago he had taken the prescription medication? Also, will he be able to get a court appointed attorney as he has no job or assets?
In regards to the blood samples, they should be able to determine the amount of the drug in his system. They could...
Last September I was charged with a DUI metabolite for marijuana and I also got a paraphernalia charge. This was my first time getting in trouble with the law. I was very honest with the police officer which helped me a lot in court. My DUI was dropped to a lesser offense and I was ordered to take a drug assessment. I did that and was told I have to attend a PRI class. I haven't done that yet because I just got married and finished moving. I have to attend court on June 9th for a non compliance review. I am registering for the PRI class in 2 days when my husband gets paid. What should I expect to happen at this review?
Hire an attorney asap to explain your circumstances to the court. You could get jail for this.
I just got an underage drinking ticket the other night. I'm 18. I was told I could do a Plea in Abeyance if they let me. I just got this new full time job and can't afford to get my license taken away. I know I made a mistake but would they be able to help me out alittle?
Call the assistant district attorney handling your case and explain your situation. He may be willing to help. If he...
i have 1 DUI, 3 years ago. i have 7 more DUI's all over 10 years ago and have never had a license. the cost to be eligible for license is over $4000, i understand there must be a penalty, but is there any way that i can lower or negotiate this cost.
Short answer is no. The governmental agencies will not barter with you. If part of that money is insurance fees you...
I called 911 on my room mate who was very intoxicated and decided to jump from my 2nd floor balcony. When he moaned about his back pain I called 911 for help. During the call they asked where he was, and I realized a few seconds later that he drove off in his car! They asked if he had been drinking, and of course I told them yes. They located him and he tested .213 on the breath test. He also busted his lip in the jump off the balcony and when authorities noticed it he told them he feared for his life and that I was beating him! He had a 1/2 full 1/2 gallon of Vodka in his back seat...they didn't charge him with DUI but charged me with assault. Can they even do that? Legally of course.
This is why you hire a qualified criminal defense attorney to help you. They did it so obviously they can. Are the...
Depends on the jurisdiction. Usually six months to two years.
