Transferring colleges. DUI on my record.
Hello. I'm trying to transfer to another university, and one of the application questions is "Have you ever been convicted of a criminal offense or have charges pending against you at this time? (Other than minor traffic violations)." Now, I was convicted of an OVUAC. It was a poor choice as a stupid young kid. It's the only thing on my record, and I'm not sure weather to answer yes or no because I don't know if it's a criminal conviction or a traffic conviction. I don't want to be denied. Also, this is incredibly stressful because I can never expunge or seal it being in the state of Ohio.
It is a criminal conviction and you do need to candidly reveal it. Sorry to tell you this, as I appreciate you did not...
H1 Extension in Process & OVI/DUI Charge after getting Acknowledgement
Hi One of my friend has applied for H1 Extension and he received Acknowledgement Note last month. When it was in process , he answered as Not Arrested / Convicted while applying for the Extension. Due to his extremely bad luck he got into trouble yesterday with an OVI Charge and Reckless Driving note. Even though blowed below BAC [.062%] and he is taking an attorney help to fight the case in court now. Would there be any problem with this situation on his H1 Extension Approval, which is yet to be known and shows on USCIS as Case Received still. Please let us know.

When do points on license clear? OVUAC?
Hello. One year ago today, I was charged with a DUI that was reduced to an OVUAC. I received four points on my license. Along with 2 speeding tickets before, I have 8 points. When will these clear? Also, I know I can never get the OVUAC charge expunged, but how much time has to pass before I keep paying the price for it?

Will make suppression case be dismissed overall for a DUI charge?
I was pulled over supposedly for not stopping at a blinking red light. The cop asked me the typical questions. Long story short I did the field sobriety tests, and was arrested. I got a lawyer, and the cops dash cam. the cop said I did these things. stepped off the line, raised arms for balance, had slurred speech, and based on my low test scores might have been because I was cold and nervous, and I asked me to do a portable breath test to sum it all up at the end, and i was arrested. We are having, the breath test suppressed because I was cold and nervous might have been why my tests were low, the traffic stop, stepping of the line, and raised arms for balance, slurred speech all asked to be suppressed. whats my chance to have it dismissed? all of this was shown on the cops dash cam

Will my suppression case be dismissed overall for a DUI charge based on this information?
I was pulled over for not stopping at a blinking red light. did the field sobriety tests, and was arrested. The cop arrested me based on, slurred speech, red glossy eyes, smell of alcohol, stepping off the line, raising arms for balance, putting my foot down after 30 sec, and the portable breath test he only had me do based on my tests, and that I was maybe nervous and cold in -1 -5 degree weather. I have a lawyer, and we are asking for those things to be suppressed because it all shows i didn't do those things on the dash cam, no slurred speech, I stopped at the light, cant step off a line if there is no line, and I blew because I was overall maybe cold and nervous, and had no slurred speech in the video, and didn't raise my arms for balance., and my foot was down after 30 seconds.
It is tough to answer your question without seeing the video, the police report and knowing if your attorney wrote a...
