I was convicted of a misdemeanor DUI (first offense) in New Hampshire in April 2007. I am a resident of Massachusetts and was at the time of the conviction. It has been reduced to a violation but still appears on my insurance. If it has been reduced in NH does that mean that it is also reduced in MA? If I move to have it sealed in NH does it also get sealed in MA? The interstate issue confuses me. Do I have to answer yes on a disclosure form if it has been reduced to a violation?

Can I get a DUI if the officer didn't give me a breathalyzer test and didn't ask for my license and registration?
I was found vomiting outside my car door. A cop came by and had me take a cab home. He didn't ask for my license or registration and didn't make me take a breathalyzer test. All he did was ask for my first name and whether or not I was going to drive. I responded no. I had no alcohol in the car and the car wasn't on (no lights, not key in the ignition, etc.). The cop waited with me until the cab got me and brought me home. My car was in the same spot the next day when I went to pick it up. Is there still a possibility I can be brought to court/get a DUI by receiving something in the mail in they took down my license number without me aware of it? Is there any possibility for something like that occurring or some other punishment? Should I call someplace or look something up to find out, or just wait it out? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have no previous record.
There is a possibility, but if you weren't observed in the car, and you weren't driving, it's unlikely. You could be...
