What happens in court if a person is picked up on a DUI and is not a citizen but has a permanent resident card?
This person has lived and worked in the US for 30 years and has no former convictions. He is not working now because of a disability. He has a ME license . He was told he will lose his license for five months and will have to pay a fine of $500.00. This incident occurred near his home and the State policeman who stopped him said he had passed him at a stop light, which he didn't do. Then went on to ask why the lights were not on in his house. Apparently this officer had been watching him for some reason for quite some time. I don't understand why customs and immigration would have anything to do with this and it is causing him a lot of stress since his lawyer told him that. Can you give me some information on this? Thank you
Being charged with OUI will not trigger any collateral consequences with INS, but if there is a conviction, then INS...

My wife got a dui and I am deploying in a few months. Will the fact that she is the sole caretaker of our 2 year old help her?
Will the judge take the childcare and work situation into consideration? She works as an accountant full time and i will be gone for 6 months. We have no family around. This is first offense and she had a clear record previously. She was arrested in NH but has a Maine license. She has to drive 5 minutes over the border into NH to get to work in Portsmouth.
It is very important that you retain an attorney for this matter. He/she will be able to help obtain the best possible...

Is it possible to get out early on a seven day sentence in county.
First jail time "offense." I have to serve 10 days with 3-4 days served already. I'm just wondering if it's possible to get out even early. Anything I can do? Thanks for your time.
Depends on what you were sentenced to the court order and whether you get good time credit to know way to know without...
Will I be able to get out early during a 7 day sentence.
I took a deal from the D.A's office to avoid a 5 year sentence. Judge sentenced me to 10 days. Take away days I served. (Got arrested Friday night released Monday evening) so I'm guessing 3 days. I'm wondering if any possible way I could get out earlier than 7 days. I also have to complete one year of probation.
I think that answer depends on the jail. Talk to your lawyer (if you had one) and discuss your concerns with him or her....
Pleading to a reduced charge (ex. DTE) on a DUI case in maine?
Recently I was arrested for a DUI in Maine. I am a first time offender and have an entirely clean record other than parking tickets which were promptly paid. That being said, my case carries an aggravating factor as I had a BAC of .20. I have not yet had my arraignment. Is there a good case or chance for me to plea to a reduced charge of DTE with ASP?
Your .20 test will make it extremely difficult to obtain a DTE resolution with out some other problem with the case....
