I was found guilty of a DUI in Virginia in January. Will traveling to Bermuda for two days in August be a problem?
Hi. I was found guilty of a DUI in Virginia January of this year. I am not proud of this at all. I am supposed to attend a family event in Bermuda in August for two days and was wondering if this DUI is going to be a problem for me, as far as entering their country? I realize of course that I can't drive there, but I'm mainly worried about having a problem getting into the country. I have a passport that is up to date, etc. and so that is not a problem. Thank you in advance.
I would just let your bond company know and also your attorney if you have one.
Will I be looking at jail time for an alcohol violation in VA when my DUI occured in 2012 and I am no longer on probation?
My 1st Offense DUI occured in Nov. 2012. I chose not to apply for an Interlock until Nov 2016. ASAP held my case open for that final step since I was dealing with my issues. I had the IID installed for 6 months and failed an ignition test while moving the car over on private property to a garage where I could use an air compressor. My daughter blew in it from the passenger seat before I could stop her because she thought it would shut the car off and she was listening to music. Then we moved it again so we could wash it. I have witnesses that the car never went off the property. As the story goes...that really is what happened. Will I be charged in criminal court? My licence will be suspended in 27 days. I spoke to ASAP and they were very understanding but I realize this is serious. My case worker at ASAP said I will "at least" have the IID on the vehicle for another 6 months but, will I have jail time or another criminal charge? ASAP is going to send me a copy of the report, so they say. Dumb move, I know. Didn't really think at the time since I wasn't really going anywhere :-(

What other factors can help in getting reductions for DWI Charge?
I was pulled over by an officer last night in Northern Virginia; he said that he saw me shopping past the stop line and backing to keep my car behind the line. He said he saw me doing me twice and it took a while for me pull over ( i didn't realize he was trying to pull me over without the alarm sound). He also said he can smell the alcohol. So I had to do a field sobriety test and a breathlyzer test, which i got about 0.12. I was arrested and had to do another breathlyzer test when i got to the station. This time, I got 0.08 which is right at the limit. So I was put in a detention cell for about an hour and was released with an arraignment date. After some research, i found that Virginia does not remove the record and it will last for 11 years for a first offense. I would like to get it reduced to reckless driving to save my careers and future graduate school plans and would like to know what other factors could help my case. I usually do not enjoy drinking; very occasional social drinking but I understand I passed the limit last night.
The best way to defend a dui is for the reason to stop. The officer may have a camera in his car that could help you....
