How can I avoid an interlock? I got a ticket for DUR, DUI, and careless driving.
I am 28. I have never had a license. I had a permit that expired a week ago. I was going to get my license but had a ticket for no proof of insurance from 2014, I didn't go to court, so I turned myself in December 2015 and payed the ticket just a week ago, that is why i was given a DUR. I requested a DMV hearing. BAC .188. First offense. I live with my dad and get to borrow his car. Can I avoid an interlock? I wouldn't have a problem with the interlock but I don't own a car. I don't drink it was a stupid choice that night. I couldn't see what lane to turn into and that is why I was given the careless driving charge and pulled over. I am willing to do UA's or probation, getting my license is just super important. I am a single mom of 2 and I just got certified and got a job as a dental assistant. I need to drive my kids to daycare. What can I do? How should I handle the DMV hearing? I can't afford a lawyer, I have a 5 month old and start a job in March. My first court is in April and have not heard about my DMV hearing yet.
This is really a complicated question. Most lawyers will do a free consultation, and some will work with you on...
Colorado interlock requirement
I was originally charged with DUI + refusal which was later reduced in court to DWAI and I accepted the plea. However during the dmv hearing the police officer admitted to the dmv officer he refused to allow me to test because I did not want to sign documents he had not yet filled out. The DMV officer refused to hear it and said my license would remain suspended for one year but I could reinstate early after 60 days with an interlock. I paid the attorney I was working with at the time an additional $2500 to appeal the dmv decision to which I never received a date to appear in court and as such I can only assume the attorney handled it without me with no change in the outcome. My license was eligible for re-enstatement on 9/9/16 however when I called the number for the dmv I was informed I would have to still install an interlock in my vehicle for 2 years beginning on the date my license was reinstated. This perplexes me since the original charge was reduced, the officer admitted he was wrong under audio recording, and I was also made to be under the assumption that an interlock was only required if I wished to reinstate early. Is there anything I can do about this?
First, I would contact your attorney and find out the status of your DMV appeal. Typically, in addition to the appeal...
I was accused of refusing a dui blood test sample
I made the mistake of hiring an internet lawyer. I lost my ass and it drove me broke paying his fees. I agreed the night of my arrest to take a blood test. However the police officer presented me with a form that was not filled out and I asked why I should sign it if he had not filled it out. He slapped me with a refusal. I never meant to refuse and have been going through hell since then. My plea was a dwai with all the administrative and judicial penalties of dui. Is there anything I can do. This is wreaking terror on my family life.
When did all this occur? When you say you pled guilty, does that mean you had no trial? What is the status of the...
What can I expect at my first hearing in a dui case (pleas and such) and where do I call to get my blood results?
I had 2 bud lights an hour and a half before I started driving got pulled over and the cop thought that i was high or drunk but I was not but he asked if i would be willing to take a blood test which you know I'm technically obligated to take. I tried to call the DA and get my blood results so I can have piece of mind going into my first court date but they said that they were not allowed to give me them until after my first court hearing.
If you requested a hearing with the DMV, you may be able to get your blood results faster through them instead of the...
What do I do to get my drivers license back?
My home state is colorado and in January of 2014 I was convicted of a dui when I visited the state. Nebraska had to give me a license number to penalize me for this crime. Recently I was convicted of a dui in colorado and I'm trying to get my restricted license with interlock. Nebraska is holding me up from getting my license in Colorado stating I need to take a written and driving test to get my nebraska license reinstated. How am I supposed to get my license back in Colorado?
Is that two convictions for dui in Colorado? You have to ask the kind people what needs to be done in order to get your...
