In a DUI ALS hearing, is it a bad idea to for a lawyer to request a continuance, (or multiple continuances) on a DUI refusal?
What are the reasons to do or not do this. I have had differing opinions. Is it so that hopefully, by the time the hearing does come, that the discovery has already been obtained? I wouldn't want to make the judge mad. Do most attorneys have access to the the police report and dash cam video at the ALS hearing. I thought that could take a long time. Also, if the suspension does go through, does that time suspended apply towards the suspension given for the criminal case. (I do understand one is administrative and the other is criminal... totally separate issues.) Thanks!
You have by now heard most if not all the reasons why this might be done. Most of my continuances occur as a result of...

Can my husband's DUI court be transferred to another county?
My husband got a felony DUI last year and has been sentenced to RSAT followed by DUI court and probation. The county that he got this in was in North Georgia and since he received the DUI, we moved to Southern GA. (We have an infant son). How would we go about getting this transferred? he has a good DUI atty, but she's very hard to get in touch with. He was on probation at the time he got this other DUI and only had 2 months left of probation when he was sentenced. (He has been sober since Sept. and has done counseling and AA meetings and was compliant with all probation obligations and his fine was paid in full.) Will they do a tolling order? and if so, what would likely be the result.
He needs to ask the DUI Court supervisor if they will transfer his program. All of the DUI courts are different, and...

Is an under age dui more intense than a DUI?
Minor was arrested for driving with Marijuana and presciption pills. He has been to court on these charges and the Judge keep pushing is court date back until he turns 21, bc then he can be charged as an Adult. The reason the judge says is bc he charge will be less since the minor will be 21 years of age. Is the reason true?
