What are the chances that my fiance's DUI charge will affect our wedding/honeymoon plans?
My fiance was arrested for a dui in RI this weekend (we live in CT). He refused to take a breathalyzer and was immediately arrested. We are getting married less than 2 weeks, and his court date is the day of our wedding. We then leave for our honeymoon the next day. Will he be able to get a continuance for after our honeymoon? Will we even be able to leave the country for our honeymoon at all? We've spent a lot of money on these events and he is devastated that this happened during this time.
First, congratulations on your wedding. I know this comes during a tough time. I'm sure you can get continuances, but I...

How can I fight a public drinking ticket from an open beer in Newport RI?
Two of my friends and I were on a beach in Newport RI. There was an open beer next to us that one of us had been drinking. Cops came over and told us that they had been called because a bunch of people were splitting a 30-rack and getting drunk on the beach (the cops saw them leaving as the they arrived). They said that they had to give us a ticket "in case anyone was watching," but assured us it was no big deal and like a parking ticket. The ticket didn't say how much it was on it and "like a parking ticket" didn't sound like a big deal so we weren't too worried. We just got the ticket (which was written out to just one of us) and it's for nearly 500 dollars. One thing that's weird is the beach name written on the ticket is a slang name, not the official name if that helps. Advice?
Bring it to court, the cop will probably reduce or dismiss it there. If not, fight it and point the finger at your...
Post DUI License Reinstatement Denied...Appeal Options?
My Rhode Island license was suspended for two years following my third DUI. I applied to have my license reinstated after the two years was up a few months ago and I received a letter from the RI DMV Medical Review Board stating my license would not be reinstated at this time because I did not meet a vague list of requirements relating to my psychiatric and mental health. For instance they say I need a letter from a medical professional certifying I have been in treatment with said professional for 12 months and that I have not consumed any alcohol during that time. My question is whether, how and what I can do about this moving forward. I feel like the letter and requirements are, first and foremost, very vague and unclear. Secondly these requirements were never communicated to me during my sentencing or at any time until my license reinstatement was denied. The idea of waiting another year for my license to be reinstated is heart breaking and moreover I do not understand exactly what they want me to do and how to even go about it. Do I have any options for hiring a lawyer to appeal this decison?
I handle cases like this in California, you need to hire an attorney who does medical dmv hearings in RI
Will I be able to reinstate my privilege to drive in mass w a expired license even tho I'm from Rhode Island??
I am a Rhode Island licensee and I am serving a dui in mass. I'm already 3 months into my refusal in mass, ri hasn't found out yet but my license expired this month I was going to ride it out and not drive in both states but what will happen if I try to renew my license or tell my state? Also if I do decide to wait it out what will I need to bring to reinstate my license privilege in mass?
There is an excellent chance RI will know about the Mass. DUI suspension. If they don't know yet, they will likely...
