If i am a 21 year old student and I harm somebody in a DUI Accident, can they sue my parents if the car title is in my name?
Parents are removing me from insurance because they feel they are at risk of being sued if I were to get in a car accident and hurt somebody else due to DUI. I own and paid for my car in full and the title is in my name.
You will be the only one who is liable, your parents are correct in what they are doing.
I blew a .14 on my 4th attempt (first 3 did not register) at a DUI checkpoint and was arrested for DUI. Could this case be beat?
I also did the full field sobriety test to which I believe to have completed pretty well. I have a squeaky clean record as of now. I just want to know if getting a lawyer and trying to fight the case would be worth it or if I should just pay the fines and accept my punishment. I know you probably need more info about the situation but everything was pretty normal other than the breathalyzer not registering the first 3 times. Any help would be great. Thanks

Officers got charges mixed up. Can charges be switched after the fact in court?
They assumed my friend was driving when I was. We weren't pulled over, just found as we were parking at a friends. We never left my neighborhood. The officer, for some reason, claimed to see him driving and I assume that's how he filed his report since everything was issued to my friend. He was charged with either a DUI or DWI, and some random tickets/citations for disorderly conduct and the tag being expired on my vehicle. I got away with nothing more than a misdemeanor for disorderly conduct. They didn't test us in any kind of way for alcohol consumption, although I believe they asked him if he would like to be breahalyzed upon arrival to the police station and he declined. He is going to fight these charges in court, since he wasn't driving. Is there anything I have to worry about?

What happens when i get arrested for DUI while already on probation, in two different counties?
In February of this year, i was arrested for using a fake id on the Mississippi gulf coast (hancock county). i was completely sober but the charge still stood. I was given a year of informal probation. Basically the judge said i didn't have to report to an officer or anything, as long as i didn't get in trouble for a year my probation would be over and my record would be expunged. if not my original sentence would stand. Now, in Oxford MS, where i go to college, on the night of April 30/May 1 i was arrested for a DUI. I bailed myself out for a little under 200 dollars and now i am wondering: 1) what do i do next 2) what will my punishments most likely look like in court 3) how will this affect my probation
