What can we expect from court for a dui with no ticket, first offense?
Got pulled over for dui, breathalyzer showed 0.082. Was arrested, blew a 0.067 at the station so didn't get a ticket. It's now 4 months later and received a court summons. This is the first offense, clean record besides 2 speeding tickets (newest one is 3 years ago). Scheduled for drug and alcohol assessment on next business day, planning on doing extensive outpatient program through a recovery center, this is of my own choosing and not mandated by a court. How bad is court going to be? We're financially struggling and I'm the only income.
You need an experience criminal defense attorney to get this charge settled under a dui. Find one tomorrow
Does cps have the right to make me take a drug test just because the mother of my child has a past of drug use during pregnancy?
My girlfriend used heroine early in the pregnancy. She got arrested one night and found out in jail that she was pregnant. Since then she has done everything right. She is clean and sober, she takes methadone, she has literally taken drug tests every week which she passes 100% of the time. Our baby was born Sept. 12th 2017 and experienced a bit of withdrawal from the methadone that was being taken legally to keep baby alive. Now cps gets a report of drug use by mom which hasent been true since April and based off of someone's finger pointing that has no basis in fact not only are they harassing my girlfriend, but they are harassing me too. I feel like it is a huge violation of my rights to force me to do anything. Their claims are false on the surface due to my girlfriends well documented actions of doing the right thing so we could be with our daughter, they should not be free to harass me or her! We are both convinced that the reporter is her ex and his parents who are only tryijng to further hurt her in regards to her children with him. Cps will not even divulge who is the accuser! I'm sickj of our rights being circumvented by government under the banner of safety.
Too bad you feel the way you do but you have no ability to refuse the drug tests and if you do CPS will take the child...
How can I take care of a DUI that was written in Alaska? I am now living in Washington state.
I am unemployed looking for a job and got a criminal record copy from an employer that I applied for and turned me down. I think it was the charge of a DUI, in Kenai, Alaska 11/05/2010, where an active warrant was issued 05/17/2013. This incident happened almost 7 years ago. Do criminal cases like this fall off after 7 years? If not, how can I take care of this from Washington state? Can I get a public defender in Washington to take care of this Alaskan infraction?
Warrants don't typically expire. Whether or not you can take care of the issue from Washington depends on what it is...

I am confused about my DUI /open container situation
I was pulled over almost 2 months ago and blew over the limit. I was not arrested and was released on my own cognition. I pulled a WATCH report today and there is absolutely nothing on my record. I've only received an open container citation that I'm going to contest in court and a date has already been assigned. My driving record reflects a pending violation which the hearing is next week. Nothing at all anywhere about a DUI? Not on the court website either. Only the open container violation with the pending court date. Is it possible that the officer only cited me for that and not aDUI? I'm very confused
The statute of limitations on a DUI is two years. The WATCH report only reflects convictions, not pending...
I might test positive on a UA. I am on a deferred prosecution. Will my deferred get revoked?
I'm currently on a deferred prosecution in Everett,Washington. I have made it all the way through intensive outpatient and am almost done with outpatient treatment. I had 4 classes left. I told my counselor today that I relapsed, and then was given a UA. I have never been out of compliance since I entered the program in September of 2016. Will they revoke my deferred. When I relapsed, I wasn't doing anything criminal, I was drinking alcohol in my house. I just chose to be honest because I'm trying to work an honest program.
This is not one of the mandatory reasons to revoke a deferred prosecution. Work with your treatment agency and your...
