Visiting VT from CA with a Non-Updated DUI License
I am visiting some family in Vermont. The story is I got a DUI a year ago. Completed all court and DMV requirements to be reinstated. When it came time to remove the interlock, I went to the DMV to update my license. Well they botched it and sent me the restricted license. The CA DMV appointments are so backed up, I am months away from changing this, but was informed by the DMV that it is not a problem because my updated status is in the National Registry. In fact I've been pulled over once in CA during this period and the officer confirmed I am okay to drive. Now my question is, can I drive in Vermont? Do officers have access to the national registry?
I am not licensed to practice in Vermont, so out of respect for any local experienced attorney from Vermont, refer to...
Caught underage drinking but no citation given -- what next?
So I was at a high school graduation party and was caught drinking by the police. I gave them my name and date of birth and took a breathalyzer test (blew a 0.079). The officers said that I could go through the court diversion process and they would give me paperwork before I left. They stayed with me until my ride came, but they never gave me any paperwork or said what they were going to do with me. Now I'm wondering what to do next; should I do nothing and wait or is there a way to find out if I have a citation/am in trouble? Thanks
If the officer purposely did not give you paperwork, it might be because he forgot but is still filing it with the...
Is it considered a crime to drive a vehicle with an expired inspection?
Worried about breaking terms of release for other non-related criminal charges I am facing. However, need this vehicle to get to work to also not break the terms.
It's not a misdemeanor; it's a violation of the motor vehicle code, like a speeding ticket, for which there's a fine to...

If arrested for not blowing roadside test
I was parked, looking at my phone trying to find my motel. short story I had beer n the car and was asked to take a sobriety test and failed as does everyone, I would not blow the roadside and was arrested my rental car towed I was transported to the police station I was not mirandized or given a phone call. I never was asked to take a chemical breath test, urine, or blood test. I was then put in Volusia county jail for two days to see the judge who set my bail at 5000 for 1000 fine if convicted. I had to pay 3500 to a bonds man in Vermont to get out of jail. I had to hire lawyer in Florida to represent me 1000 retainer 250 an hour. what I want to ask is can I sue for the money that it cost me to be locked up on the fact of my civil rights were violated.
Everybody fails a sobriety test ????????????hmm interesting will have to disagree. Perhaps but don't see any civil...
How reliant is the BAC Back Calculation given what I blew at the station?
Hello I got pulled over last night for not having my headlights on (there are many street lights so I didn't realize it). I had some beers to drink and was asked to do sobriety tests. I feel that I did fine and the officer would not tell me what I did wrong when he asked if I would take a breath test. I refused the test on the street and was taken back to the station where they gave a test. I blew a .066. The test was taken 59 minutes after I was pulled over. Given this information it seems I might be on the line for being over the limit. How does the Back Calculation work and if it does stand that theoretically was above the limit, I assume it wouldn't be by much so what are my chances of defending this successfully? I have heard that the Back Calculation has to make assumptions to do the math and is sometimes not relied heavily or that people can get off because there is no possibility to have theoretically known with 100% certainty when I was pulled over.
What you are talking about is retrograde extrapolation. A retrograde extrapolation requires knowledge of what you...
I would like to sue the Saint Albans State Police for defamation of character, where should I start?
I was pulled over for speeding and subsequently charged with possession and trafficking 880 grams of cocaine. The State Trooper saw hair ties on the floor, which apparently are used to package heroin. This gave him a reason to search my Sister-In-Laws car, which she bought at an auction 3 months prior. After a test kit came back positive for cocaine they then turned the two (2) boxes of baking soda that was in the back into 800 grams of cocaine. Not only did I lose my job because, of this, I have not been able to get a job since the three articles were printed and a segment on the Channel 3 news. I've also had to help my daughter cope with problems she now has with her classmates because, of the unwanted publicity and false accusations. At this point it has become harassment because, it's not the first time this happen. My name has been slandered beyond repair and I can't support myself or my daughter without a job. I have more to say and I'll be willing to do so, when the time comes. Thank you for your time, Kristy L.Sweeney
