Are all infractions supposed to be treated equally in our court system? My cousin failed to appear for DUI court & no warrant:
I was scheduled to be in court on 8/5/13 at 10AM. My grandma was my ride to court & she'd had a stroke just before. I called the Marshall County State's Attorney to let them know I would be unable to attend court & was told it would be alright if payments on my fines were made and that the date would be rescheduled. My arrangement was $20 per month & $60 was paid on 7/10/13 - I thought I was covered. I had a probation appointment on 10/2/13 in the Marshall County Courthouse building & had seen on my file on judici.com that there was a review that same day. I asked my probation officer if I should be in the courtroom & was told no. I had my next probation appointment on 11/4/13 at which time I was arrested & discovered a warrant was issued on 10/2/13.
Any time you have a scheduled court appearance it's up to you to attend. Relying on others telling you that you don't...

Getting license back after DUI
What is the average rate for getting license back after DUI? Haven't driven in 7 plus years as I don't have a lot of money. If I get my license back I can get my old job back.

Auto Insurance Rate for DUI Supervision
Currently under a DUI supervision (first time offender). Plead guilty to DUI since I decided to take breathalyzer at police station. Had my court date and prosecutor and judge agreed to rescind the summary suspension, but still had to put BAID device in vehicle. Received letter from Secretary of State showing suspension was rescinded, off my record, and valid license. Supervision goes to December 2015. Due to the above information, will current auto insurance company or future ones be able to know about this if I complete my supervision with no conviction? I understand that the arrest will never be sealed or expunged and SOS will always show that Summary Suspension on court abstract records. My attorney told me auto insurance companies don't have availability to "court records."
Criminal records are generally public so I'm not sure why your attorney told you that unless your case is to be sealed...
I was charged with a DUI last night.
I was involved in an accident. It was the other person's fault. But I did received a ticket for "not slowing down to avoid accident" Which makes no sense. I do not think the test results matter because I drank liquor at the Scene AFTER the crash. I just waited in the car actually and drank wine port.The police did arrive and it said on the ticket that they noted I had wine in my hands when they arrived. I have a jeep and the damage didn't really look to bad, (her car looked totaled) . I didn't know how to handle the situation. I was also drinking before I got into the jeep. But I believe it was the wine I drank at the scene that put me over the limit.
Report this to your auto carrier and hire a criminal attorney. Do not post more admissions online.
DUI on background check.
Months ago I signed a contract to work for an accounting firm after graduation. Very recently I was charged with a DUI. My first court date is very soon. Ironically I was was just sent the pre-employment background check. How would the DUI look on a background check at this point? It shows that I have been charged on Judici.com, but I'm wondering how this would look on a background check due to there being no verdict.
it won't look good, but it will look worse if you lie and they find out.
