What penalty will I face for testing positive for cocaine on a DUI probation?
My boyfriend got a dui in July, and has been on probation since. He recently had a drug and alcohol evaluation in which he tested positive for cocaine - all other tests were clean. What penalty does he face?
He can receive any amount of the jail time that was imposed but suspended. It is unlikely anyone on here can say what...
I just got my first dui for smoking and driving I wasn't taken into custody but they took a blood test. how much will it coast?
I smoked a blunt about 4 hours before and was pulled over and given a request for a dui hearing because of the smell. was not taken into custody just given a blood draw, car impounded, and I have to wait 3 months for my court date and the test results. the officer said if it comes back with anything more than negative I would be convicted. what should I expect
1. The officer’s job is to investigate suspected and forward it to the prosecuting attorney. The prosecuting attorney...
What sentence could I get when I was accused of dui and they found baggies that use to have meth in them in my stuff at jail?
I crashed my car, no one else involved. I was arrested for dui. I deferred a double dui 7 years ago. I did not blow at scene. At police station I blew .074. Later at the jail they found a cigarette box with several used baggies with meth residue and i peed positive for meth. I had only used meth one time and it was 2 days prior. The baggies were not mine but I have no proof of that. The officer said due to the totality if the events he determined I was impaired on alcohol. My car was totaled. No one hurt. Thank you
The prosecutor can still charge you with DUI even if you don't blow a .08 or higher, first because there is a variance...
Can I have DUI conviction overturned or reversed?
In April 2015 I pled guilty to two DUI's in neighboring counties. Ive always questioned whether they even had good cases. Was it procedurally correct to not breathalyze me when they pulled me over? Not arrest or even ticket me but just send me on my way? In King county I mentioned having a couple of beers to the officers. I was actually referring to the previous day when I was pulled over in the other county. Regardless, I now have two DUI convictions in two counties. Also, these DUI's were within 72 hours of one another. I've heard they should have been run differently. Together somehow? But they were in separate counties and since I couldn't afford an attorney i felt stuck with very green public defenders. Plus, I had no money for bail. Consequently, I was unable to go out and seek a pro bono attorney or pursue a deferred sentence. Instead I sat 29 days in jail while my attorney did, I don't know. At 29 jail days it became too much. I said I'd plead guilty just to get out of jail. I did an Alfred plea but it did not help my situation. My plea mistake causes me great difficulty. I feel cheated by our guilty until proven innocent system.
I am sorry to say that this is nearly impossible to withdraw your guilty pleas even a day after you enter it let alone,...
What do I do if my drug test was negative but the out this dip stick to test for alcohol came out positive but I don’t drink.
This is the first time that I did a drug test in 3 years where as usual came out negative but they put a dip stick in and for alcohol but it came out positive but my probation officer did not violate me but they are sending it to a lab for confirmation. He said also that don’t worry because I’m not on probation for alcohol or drug use and my conditions does not say no drinking.
If you're not on Probation for alcohol or drug use, and your PO says not to worry about it, then why ask the question?...
Is a charge of "aggravated obstruction of a highway of a commerce" (felony) considered a violent crime?
I received a conviction for a DUI ( first offense) and along with it an Aggravated obstruction of a highway of a commerce charge which is my first felony in LA and I transferred my supervised probation to WA state. What exactly is WA state equivalent to LA charge for that felony? I was wondering if in the probationers eyes my felony is considered a violent crime?
Laws don't equivocate like that. I don't think WA has that type of felony but either way, I don't see that as a...
Will dol suspend my licience for driving without interlock if I blew under the legal limit.
I was pulled over driving my friend's car without a ignition interlock and I blew a .067 which is under the legal limit but I still got ticketed for driving without ignition interlock I have a interlock and SR22 in my own truck and have had it for a year-and-a-half with no violations I'm just wondering if I'm going to lose my license over this?
That will depend upon the conditions put upon you in the Conditional Release you received which originally allowed you...
