DUI 2nd offense in WV and DMV delayed decision for 5 years
I got a 2nd DUI in WV in July 2011. The DMV set my hearing for April 2012 I did not get notice of their action until May of 2016 almost 5 years after the fact, I am not going to get an interlock device and soon will be moving out of state. I know that I can be suspended for ten years; so after 10 years can I get a drivers license without participating in the Interlock program or taking classes? Also on my driving record what would be the date of offense?
The date of offense is July 2011, but the DMV may suspend much later because you never showed up. It is a fools errand...
What are penalties typically imposed for failure to complete DUI deferral program in West Virginia?
I opted for the first offense, non-aggravated DUI deferral, which requires 185 days with an interlock system on my steering wheel. I have a secondary heading in a month and a half, where my progress will be evaluated. If I only have ~30 days completed by that point, will they file a motion for failure to complete the program, thus entering the guilty plea, and if so, what are the typical additional penalties imposed? Will it likely include jail time? Thanks
First, it’s a 165 not a 185. Second, courts typically will afford more time to complete the program if the citizen is...
I’m a first time offender of theft of 1116.10 a felony with no criminal back ground what can I exspect of bail or if I get on?
The police officer that I talked to said that I wasn’t under arrest at the moment but he said he will give me unreasonable doubt and that I should just turn myself in when he come back from his vacation. He said I could turn myself in early before a warrant is out so he could process me, but what I’m wondering is will turning myself in before a warrant is issued look good on me, I have two jobs, no criminal record prior to this soon to be one and don’t know that’s good enough for a low bail and not having one some advice would be lovely.
Turning yourself in is always better than being arrested during a traffic stop or at your home. However, you should...
