Can I still be able to volunteer at my childs school because of a cori check that will show a cwaf for a dui?
I have a cori check happening at my child's school. I am nervous that my continuance without a finding for a dui will prevent me from being able to. Is this something that would eliminate me from being near children?
It should be a dismissal if probation is completed. It shouldn't be a problem, but speak to someone at school.
I drove into a diner with a BAC of .21 and then attempted to sit down and order something. Any chance of a dismissal?
I wasn't even driving at the time! So here's what happened. I was drinking for several hours. Actually, more like ten. I decided to drive myself home because I didn't feel too buzzed. I was kind of hungry, so I said, "Why not pull into my favorite diner?" Well, they must have changed the layout because before I knew it I was in the lobby! No one was hurt and the only thing that was destroyed was the door (when my car went through it.) After making sure that everyone was okay, I figured, well, I'm already here, even if my entry was a little unorthodox. I took a seat in the dining room and tried to order. That's when the cops showed up. Initially they didn't know who had driven into the diner, but one of the waitresses ratted me out. By the way, is she allowed to do that? Isn't that slander? Anyway, they gave me the field sobriety tests and stuff, and I failed. I blew a .23 and then a .21. Is there any chance of this case getting dropped because the cops didn't actually see me driving?
You really need to get off this public forum confessing all these details where the police and prosecutor can read and...
What is the likelihood of a hardship license
My husband was in a car accident in Dec 2013. His license was taken the day after, and he has not driven since. His court case finally went to trial in 2015, where he was found guilty of a 1st Off DUI. (He had 2 prior DUI in 2000 & 2001, but they ruled a first. The RMV has 2 license suspensions on file - the one from from Dec 2013, and the other August 2015 (court ruling was July so we are confused on that). He has served his time, completed the 24Q, and following all set guidelines of probation. We are getting the necessary letters from probation and his work to try and get a hardship licence. What date will the RMV look at (Dec '13 or Aug '15 to determine if he has satisfied the minimum) Does the timing of his two priors in early 2000s factor in (since its been so long or does the RMV not factor in the court ruling at all?) How likely would he get approved or do we need to wait longer. Is there anything else we can have prepared for a rmv hearing to help our case?
Even though he was convicted of a first offense the RMV will still treat it as a third offense. Also if he refused the...
Will I be held in custody when I go into court tomorrow?
I was placed on unsupervised probation in attleboro Massachusetts for driving on a suspended license. It was to conclude on December 1, 2016. However on October 13th 2016 I was pulled over in new Bedford Massachusetts and again my license wasn't active and also they brought to my attention I had a warrant. The warrant was supposably for larceny over 250$ and shoplifting out of fall river Walmart. I went to court in new Bedford on the 14th of October for operating on suspension and was released. The following day the 15th I went to fal river court for the larceny warrent and was released on personal recofnance. However now I received a notice saying I have a warrent out of attleboro which is where my unsupervised probation is out of so I'm guessing its for a probation violation. When I go in what are the chances thy will hold me in custody?
The notice is probably a summons for an initial probation violation arraignment where the probation officer can move to...
Can a mayor get a dui
I offered my mayor a ride home just asking
Virtually anyone, in the right circumstances, can be charged with a crime.
Can I ask for a hearing to reduce my suspension and get my license back?
I got a third OUI, the court considered it a second offense. My license was taken for 5 years for refusing the breathalyzer and another 8 years from the court. It is 7 years into my suspension. I no longer live in the state that I was charged in so a hardship license is not possible.
If you believe you have complied with all the requirements of your sentence, paid all the fines, completed all the...
What should I do?
I have a ri license and was caught w a oui in mass. Received a letter in the mail that my license is suspended in mass for 180 days immediately. My lawyer two weeks later scheduled a disposition two weeks later I received a 24 d program w dae classes for 16 weeks and a 45 day loss of license and now I just received a letter saying I have to serve the 180 days and then the 45 days after how can that be? My lawyer didn't mention anything about having to do the 180 days he only told me I have to serve the 45 days very confused?? Any help on what to do
Unfortunately, the RMV is correct. If you had taken the breathalyzer and failed, your 30-day suspension would expire...
