MA hardship license... Is a policies and procedures form with letterhead sufficient in proving I have to drive?
I am a visiting nurse and it states multiple times that a valid license is required for my job. Is that enough or do they require a letter actually written by a supervisor? I will most likely lose my job if that is the case.
Speak with an attorney who deals regularly with the Registry of Motor Vehicles in obtaining hardship licenses for...

Out of state DUI...affect MA drivers license?
Two nights ago I was charged with a DUI in the state of CA while on vacation. I supposedly failed the sobriety tests and also failed the breathalyzer. I hired an attorney from CA who I met with yesterday and he will be handling my case out there. He says it may be possible to get the charge reduced to a "wreckless driving" but the chances are slim. When my license is suspended in CA how likely is it that MA will find out? Ive done some research and it seems like it can go either way. I know that MA is not part of the NDR but in some cases they do find out. I don't need to renew my license for another 2 years so that shouldn't be a problem. My lawyer actually had the same case in October of last year and the Mass RMV never suspended the guys license although CA did take action against it.
MA does not appear to be a member of the compact of states that agree to cross report. However they may do so...
Should I be concerned about getting a DUI and how long do they have to file etc? How do I read the codes on the report?
I was in a car accident 5 days ago where i was injured pretty significantly. I was less than a quarter mile from my home when it happened. I hit a bump/frost heave that made my car jump. The car swerved and i was having a hard time regaining control when I hit some ice. The car then crashed into a ditch and into a tree. Airbag was deployed and I ended up with a concussion, lacerations and a couple of significant broken bones. I definitely lost consciousness for a bit and was quite confused when I came to. The EMT had asked if I had been drinking and I told him two glasses over the past four hours with dinner. I was in and out and after all my care, in the morning the ER trauma team came in explaining that my BAC level came in at .13. The dr explained how this could happen and said i could be a "cheap date" and told me it was her job to ask if i needed help etc. She added that it was strictly confidential and that unless the information was subpoenaed, it was confidential etc. I picked up the police report and even talked to the officer and he never mentioned alcohol etc. Now I'm looking at the reports and there are codes next to the BAC test and susp alc susp drug etc.
You probably don't need to worry about those codes. Usually just to the right of the BAC there will be a number. If it'...
Corpus delicti rule in relation to a dui case
Hi, i have a friend who was arrested for a dui and he made some incriminating statements after his arrest. He said something along lines of " I've driven drunk many times and never been caught" would those statements be deemed inadmissible in relation to the corpus delicti rule because the state can't prove that he has driven drunk except the time he was caught driving drunk? He is scared that will be an aggravating factor should he be found guilty. But dosent the state need to prove his statements for them to be admissable should the case go to trial under the corpus delicti rule?
The state may not need to prove that these previous drunk driving incidents happened but may try to introduce the...
WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU RECEIVE A SUMMONS FOR A DUI?
I have been charged with an OUI DRUGS AND LEAVING THE SCENE FROM PROPERTY DAMAGES. The police didn't arrest me, I was taken to the hospital and a few days later received a criminal summons which I mailed back asking for a hearing. I was under ambien a new prescribed medication from my doctor. Unknowingly I grabbed the keys and my two children and we're heading to the pharmacy and I hit a light pole down the street. I called my sister to the scene, once she arrived I told her I was not feeling well and crossed the street (accident happened a few houses down) and when I got to my driveway i fainted. In the hospital they found alcohol in my system which I don't recall drinking nor grabbing my keys or anything that happened.
Failing to appear in court when summoned can result in a warrant. In a case such as the one you describe it is...
Can I get denied employment due to a CWOF from a DUI?
One year ago I was placed on a CWOF for a DUI in Massachusetts. Since then, everything has been taken care of: I completed all my classes, paid all my fines, got off probation, and everything was dismissed. Fast forward to now- I was offered and accepted a new job, pending a background check. It's taking a while to hear back about it (about a week), and I'm wondering if the CWOF is going to ruin my chances of this job? It's for a retail store, so nothing too serious like childcare or law enforcement or anything like that.
Since 2012, when Governor Patrick pushed through CORI reform [much to his credit], people with CWOFs have been able to...
