My boyfriend is on probation for dwi, he got arrested on a warrant for domestic assault. How can he get out of jail?
My boyfriend is on probation for dwi and he got arrested on a warrant for domestic assault, he willingly turned himself in to his po. He was arraigned and bail was set and he had conditions he report to his po as soon as he's bailed out and that he have no contact with the victim. But when I went to bail him out they said he couldn't be bailed out cuz he violated his probation. I'm very confused and don't understand why the judge set bail and gave him conditions of release if he can't be bailed out??
Because no one has set the bail amount on the violation as of yet. He should speak to his counsel.
Will someone with his 6th DUI, out on probation for DUI#5, get prison time in Vermont?
My ex just got DUI #6 in Vermont. He just got DUI #5 in VT on June 26, 2015, so about 6 months ago. This is his 3rd DUI in VT. He has one in PA and two in FLorida. In Florida, his license was permanently revoked for DUI#4. He is currently on probation from DUI#5 and has violated 3 times by drinking, driving w/ no license, harassing others, violating curfew, missing visit to probation, etc. He was put on Strict community supervision Nov. 1, 2015 and given curfew, no alcohol, treatment, etc. He also is a convicted felon in FL with domestic violence/aggravated assault w/ a firearm and battery on a person over 65 charges which he did prison time for. He has a history of violating probation and/or house arrest more than a dozen times in FL on top of his VT violations. He also has 2 other domestic violence convictions in FL. Given his extensive criminal history, his inability to stay sober or follow conditions of release, do you feel he will be charged as a habitual offender and be given real prison time? He is currently in VT prison waiting until the end of Feb. for his VOPhearing. He has a $50,000 bond. His probation officer plans to use EVERYTHING against him.
Possibly. Your ex needs to speak with his public defender.
Is it possible that with this man's extensive criminal history that he will only get 18 months outpatient for DUI 6?
My ex got DUI#6 while on probation for DUI which he got just 7 months ago. He was on strict court supervision with a curfew, no alcohol consumption allowed, no driving as his license is permanently revoked in the State of Florida (after his 4th DUI). Therefore, he cannot get a license in VT. This man also has a history as a convicted felon in Florida for Aggravated Assault with a firearm and battery on a person aged 65 an older. He did a year and a half in Florida prison for those charges. He has DUI#3 and DUI #4 convictions in Florida. He also has been convicted of domestic violence battery two other times in FL. He has a history of multiple violations of probation and house arrest in both Florida and Vermont. He has violated his probation at least 3 times for DUI #5 in Windsor County Vermont since July of 2015. This recent violation is DUI #6. So not only was he drunk, he admitted he was on the arrest Affidavit, he was violating curfew (terms of his probation), drinking (violating probation), driving, (violating probation) and committing a felony offense (DUI#6). His public defender is now trying to make a plea deal where he gets 18 months outpatient and no jail.
If he gets 18 months outpatient and no jail his PD has done a good job. 6 DUI convictions mean this person has a...

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...
Can Bob claim he was voluntary intoxicated if he went to court or would he be charged with disorderly conduct?
Bob and Jon are walking home from a hard night of partying at a local drinking establishment. bob is very intoxicated, swaying as he walks, and Jon isn't much better off. As they walk home, they pass Mike coming the other way- Mike is a gamer and wears gamer association t-shirts. Bob and Jon both find this entertaining, and Bob begins openly mocking Mike about his t-shirt. Mike takes offense to this, shouts at the two to leave him alone and attempts to walk past the two with his hands in his pockets. Jon shouts "hit him, Bob" and Bob strikes Mike in the nose with a closed fist, breaking Mike nose. Bob and Jon stand there congratulating each other drunkenly.
Bob is guilty of breaking a guy's nose. The fact that he drank before striking Mike does not excuse him from the act,...
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...
