Kansas Out of state DUI
I was in a motorcycle wreck in 2012 while visiting my mom in Kansas and was taken to the hospital. I was never arrested. I have lived in Mississippi for 20 years now. I did live in Kansas as a child. I just went to have my MS license renewed and was told that Kansas had a block on it and gave me a number to call. The lady at the Kansas DVM said I had been convicted of DUI due to a blood alcohol test done in the hospital. She told me I needed to write a letter stating that I was no longer a resident of Kansas and list my name, ss# address etc along with a money order or check for $25. She said I would then receive a letter of instructions to follow. Is there anything I can do?
I am not licensed to practice law in Kansas, so out of respect for any experienced attorney licensed in Kansas who...
Getting off diversion early in Kansas
I got a dui when I turned 18 and am currently going through the 12 month diversion program avalible. i have heard in classes that I had to attend for my dui that it is possible to terminate the diversion when all of the fines and classes are done and paid for. I am at my 6 month mark and my diversion officer told me that getting of never happens unless you are getting deployed. She made me pay the initial $130 for seeing her as well as $50 every first Saturday of the month for visit fee's and a drug test. I think I'm getting screwed around on this and really would appreciate some advice.
The policies for early termination of diversion programs, for DUI matters, differ widely from jurisdiction to...

You should definitely tell your attorney!! We hate to be the last ones to know everything. Your attorney may be able...
It's been 3 months since I got arrested for my second DWI, and I still haven't been charged with anything.
On April 10, 2015 I was driving drunk and hit a parked car. I refused the breathalyzer so they got a warrant to obtain my blood. I know there is no way at the time that they took my blood that I was under the legal limit. However, I still haven't been charged. My lawyer says he has witnessed instances where it takes this long for the blood results to come back from the KBI, but on rare occasions. I'm wanting to get some more opinions on what the odds are of me still getting charged. Has anyone had experience with it taking longer than this? This is my second DWI (the first one was a DUI if that matters). The other charges i'm facing include: Reckless driving, transporting open container, child endangerment, and refusal of breathalyzer test. Thank you in advance!
Yes. it can take that long. Listen to your lawyer. If you don't want to listen to him, why did you hire him? There...
I am in the milltary, I received a DUI on post. Now my command has my keys.
DUI on a milltary post. They are holding my keys because "MP's do not have a impound lot so we are going to hold your keys"
I'm not sure what your question is, but I would suggest speaking with someone in JAG about your situation.
I am on probation for a DUI and recently got a driving on suspended 1st time. Am I facing immediate jail time?
I am almost finished with my probation. I only need to pay $1000 dollars and I'm finished. I have court July 22nd to follow up with the judge. I also got in a wreck and didn't stop to give information. My fiance was having a panic attack and needed her meds. The guy I hit followed me home. I am going through an eviction process with my fiance and we have a 9 month old son with us. I cannot leave them behind and do the 12 month underling sentence.
I don't know about KS but you would 100% guaranteed be facing 364 days in jail in FL for DWLS and an additional 364 for...
