What trouble am i in if my unlicensed boyfriend drives my car drunk and has an accident
My boyfriend lives with me and has no license because of 2 duis (i didn't know this for quite awhile as his old job supplied a work truck ) We live in a rural area and in order to work driving is a must.As he had stopped drinking he was using our truck that is in my name as is the insurance. Lately i strongly suspect he is drinking again and driving . What kind of trouble am in if he has an accident and hurts someone? I own my home and another property and am afraid of losing everything I have worked so hard to get.
First of all, he should not be on the road. He is a danger to others which is why they took away his license. Its not...
Caught underage drinking but no citation given -- what next?
So I was at a high school graduation party and was caught drinking by the police. I gave them my name and date of birth and took a breathalyzer test (blew a 0.079). The officers said that I could go through the court diversion process and they would give me paperwork before I left. They stayed with me until my ride came, but they never gave me any paperwork or said what they were going to do with me. Now I'm wondering what to do next; should I do nothing and wait or is there a way to find out if I have a citation/am in trouble? Thanks
If the officer purposely did not give you paperwork, it might be because he forgot but is still filing it with the...
Visiting VT from CA with a Non-Updated DUI License
I am visiting some family in Vermont. The story is I got a DUI a year ago. Completed all court and DMV requirements to be reinstated. When it came time to remove the interlock, I went to the DMV to update my license. Well they botched it and sent me the restricted license. The CA DMV appointments are so backed up, I am months away from changing this, but was informed by the DMV that it is not a problem because my updated status is in the National Registry. In fact I've been pulled over once in CA during this period and the officer confirmed I am okay to drive. Now my question is, can I drive in Vermont? Do officers have access to the national registry?
I am not licensed to practice in Vermont, so out of respect for any local experienced attorney from Vermont, refer to...
Can Bob claim he was voluntary intoxicated if he went to court or would he be charged with disorderly conduct?
Bob and Jon are walking home from a hard night of partying at a local drinking establishment. bob is very intoxicated, swaying as he walks, and Jon isn't much better off. As they walk home, they pass Mike coming the other way- Mike is a gamer and wears gamer association t-shirts. Bob and Jon both find this entertaining, and Bob begins openly mocking Mike about his t-shirt. Mike takes offense to this, shouts at the two to leave him alone and attempts to walk past the two with his hands in his pockets. Jon shouts "hit him, Bob" and Bob strikes Mike in the nose with a closed fist, breaking Mike nose. Bob and Jon stand there congratulating each other drunkenly.
Bob is guilty of breaking a guy's nose. The fact that he drank before striking Mike does not excuse him from the act,...
I was the passenger in my car and the person driving said I had been driving earlier I hadn't. I got arrested too.
We both had been drinking, but the person driving had a suspended license. I think she aS trying to cover her butt by saying she HAD to drive because I wasn't able to. I also git arrested and charged. How can I fight this? I didn't know a police officer could use someone's oral stAtement as evidence to arrest someone when there is no proof that I drive that car. What should I do?
I am not licensed in Vermont, but the issue is something I have seen in CA more than once. First of all, in Vermont,...
Can handheld breathalyzers be used as evidence to convict me of an underage drinking ticket in Vermont?
I blew a 0.03 and denied drinking any alcohol. If I go to court, do I have a chance at fighting it because they didn't do a calibrated breathalyzer at the station? I read handheld devices aren't accurate enough to be admissible in court.
Most states do not allow these tests to be admitted. You will need a VT lawyer to confirm this is the case there....
