Can I take care of a 1st time Maryland DUI case from Arizona?
I'm in a situation where I had a DUI in 2008. I got sentenced to probation before judgement and had to complete classes. I ended up getting in trouble in PA before the probation before judgement was finished in MD. I ended up sending time in PA state prison from August 2009 to April 2012 on unrelated non-felony charges. When first incarerated in PA I wrote the Washington County MD clerk of courts telling them where I was and what happened and I wasn't getting out for awhile. They continued to go through with a court case, scheduled me a date, never picked me up from PA state prison. Never sent me anything back but the records show I wrote them. I never thought anything of it. Now its late 2016, tried to transfer my license to AZ and was told MD has it flagged and wont allow a transfer. Apparently now I have a failure to appear from 2010 that I never recieved any info on. I need to know if I can take care of this from AZ and get the FTA dropped because of my incarceration in PA during the time of court. It's their fault for not coming to get me and clerk of courts shows i wrote them in their system and said will review with judge at court date. I need to get my license back.
Well, a good criminal defense attorney could certainly represent you in Maryland while you are in Arizona. I would...
Will I be convicted of DUI as a violation of probation.
My girlfriend got a DUI about a year ago in Maryland. She was not convicted, but put on supervised PB. She has a good job, she's taken all the required classes, paid the cost of probation every month. Has never met her PB officer. The problem is she signed her apartment lease in PA the day before she got the DUI. However she never informed them of her move. Now she lives with me in PA. She contacted a new lawyer who said the PB officer would most likely violate her and she would be convicted of the DUI which means she would most likely loose her job and also have to move back to MD.
A standard condition of probation is to not leave the state without permission of the probation officer. She could file...
Is it best to postpone court for DUI to prove longer amount of time sober?
Would you suggest postponing court for a repeat DUI (last DUI being almost 7 years ago) to allow for more treatment (AA, alcohol classes, interlock on car) and to show you have been sober for longer? Sobriety length if sticking with original court date will be approximately 12 weeks, with 2 months with interlock in car, approximately 70 AA meetings, and one month in alcohol classes through the state (which took several weeks to get set up and go through intake).
You should speak to an attorney about this in a confidential setting. If you do not have an attorney representing you,...
Husband's 4th DUI in Maryland. Sentencing possibilities?
My husband received his fourth DUI (previous instances are in 2002, 2006, and 2009). He has had PBJ and monitoring only before... no jail time. This time around, he has realized he has a problem, has been going to AA at least once a day, is starting alcohol treatment through our Health Dept, and has an interlock placed in his car. We live in Maryland. What should he tell the kidge when asked if he has anything to say? Should he request house arrest, and will they offer it considering he is receiving treatment and has two small children and a wife at home? He has a well paying job and works 7 days a week. Is there anything else you suggest he does before going to court? Should I prepare myself mentally that he is going to jail (his lawyer said for up to four years)?
The most important thing right now is to either retain a competent DUI attorney. If that i out of reach, apply to the...
