Would I still be able to have my open container ticket expunged? What about my DUI in KY?
I got an open container ticket this past weekend in oxford, MS. I am from Kentucky and have a DUI in the state. Could I still have my DUI expunged if my open container ticket can be expunged?
It depends on the state. Not every state 'expunges'. In NY, for example, there is no remedy of expungement. The best...

my husband got his second dui he was bonded out and given a court date he went to that court date and pled not guilty he was then given a trial court date which he missed he called down o the court house and they told him to just come in and see the judge so he did that and when he got in front of the judge the judge informed him that they already found him guilty of the 2nd dui and he is now ordered to do 5 days

Taken to station because police wanted to give me a DUI. Blew 000 and charged with careless driving. Was I technically arrested?
The other night, I was pulled over driving some friends home from a party. The cop said he smelled alcohol from the car, and I explained it was probably coming from my friends being that they were at a college party. He asked me to blow a field breathalyzer, which I refused. I took the field sobriety test and was told I failed. They put me in handcuffs and took me to the station. After blowing a 0.00, they put me in a jail cell, took my fingerprints, a mugshot, and gave me a careless driving ticket. I have a few questions. 1, was I arrested? They took me to the station believing I was going to get a DUI but since I was sober was I arrested for careless driving or not arrested at all? 2. I took an online driving course and got the ticket expunged, will my arrest record still be on file for federal agencies? Thank you
Yes, you were arrested. As to whether your arrest record will be visible by federal agencies, the answer depends upon...
Is driving when taking a daily prescrip of adderall for ADHD a DUI? Without treatment u will have a distracted driver.
I'd be a distracted and dangerous driver. One could compare past driving record to now and see no wrecks or tickets in recent years. I would think distracted driving is more dangerous. It's not like 20 mg makes me high. I still suffer exhausted fatigue anyway even taking it. The dopamine affect is also to treat fibromyalgia, speaking of which, pain and fatigue can be distracting too. Very much so. That's why my doctor wouldn't let me work the hospital cause pain is very distracting.
Driving while under the influence of a prescription drug can be DUI. If your doctor understands you will drive with...

Can I be charged with a DUI when I was not searched or given any kind of sobriety test?
I allowed my friends to use my vehicle & they smoked marijuana In it & when I got it back & was driving home I went through a roadblock & the officer smelled it. he had me pull an extra 75 feet to get out of road & never received ANY kind of sobriety test, nor was I searched, even when being booked in. Nothing was found in my car when it was searched, I was put in handcuffs, taken to jail, got booked in, & sat in the drunk tank for 4 hours, still in the clothes I was arrested in. had insurance, license, etc. everything on me & my vehicle & everything that was in it my vehicle was legal except expection sticker. Court Tuesday. Guilty or not guilty? Can I fight it since no test was given to me & since he had me drive after being accused of being under the influence?
Based upon your side of the story only, it sounds like you have a good chance of winning. However, we don't know what...
Kansas Dui help out of state
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?
Your best course of action is to discuss with a DUI attorney in Kansas. Good luck.
