My girlfriend recently met someone who provided her alcohol (she is 20) and then they proceeded to have sex. She was also drunk
Is there any form of legal action I can take against him for providing alcohol to a minor and essentially "rape"?
I guess the first question is did she consent to have sex or not? I think that's a question best left for her to decide.
What can I do when I've been told installing an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) in my hybrid vehicle cannot be performed safely?
I am in the middle of a DUII diversion case in WA county and just had my license reinstated. I made an appointment at a highly reputable, local IID shop and took in my electric/gasoline hybrid vehicle with push-button-start. An hour later, after taking the whole interior of the car apart, the shop manager informed me that the installation would require permanent damage/modifications to the vehicle. He also said that the installation may pose a safety issue, so he didn't feel comfortable completing it and refunded my money. A quick Google search has 0 results matching "hybrid IID installation". I'm reluctantly seeking a second opinion from another IID shop, due to concerns about honesty/transparency. Do I have to sacrifice the safety and integrity of my only car for this installation?
If you want a restricted license, you'll have to get an IID. This is the requirement for people who drive drunk, are...
Is this just a clerical error or what can I do about it?
I was charged with a DUII in Oregon. I went to my arraignment this past Monday and there was a statement on that piece of paper they give you that stated the State is objecting to Diversion because of a 2007 DUII conviction. First of all, that isn't me. This is my first DUII not my second. I spoke to the public defenders meadator and he said I needed to get an attorney to clear this all up, but why would they put someone elses wrap sheet in my file? Is this just a common mistake?
These types of mistakes are not "common," but they happen too often. As a former prosecutor, I can state that the...
What are the possible penalties for violating probation on a first time DUI, in WA State?
My son-in-law had a DUI in WA State in Feb 2010. Four months later, he was charged with DV and possession of pot (very small amount). He was at home (and was intoxicated) when this occurred, and the incident was minor. He did not strike my daughter, but held her wrists during a heated argument. That was enough. The DV was ultimately reduced to disorderly conduct, and final disposition was no jail time, no probation and a fine. Assuming fairly standard probation terms from his Feb DUI, what can he expect when he faces the court to answer for the DUI probation violation? Note: He has not had a drink in almost 6 months now, and has several character statements, as well as the support of his wife (my daughter). He is represented. Thanks.
This is a question about Washington, but you put it in the Oregon section. I'd try again in the Washington section.
I need to expunge my DUI diversion in Hillsboro Oregon.
Please let me know how that process works. I read on some lawyers sites that i can and also that i cannot expunge. I don't know what is the real deal.
A DUII Diversion is not eligible for "expungment" or set aside under Oregon law.
Where can i get a form for motion and affidavit and order to file in court to remove my IID device?
I don't have money to hire lawyer and want to do it myself.
It depends on the reason you are required to have an IID. Diversion? You can apply after 6 months. Maybe sooner, if the...
How do get a court revocation changed to a suspension on my Oregon drivers license
I was convicted for 3rd DUI in Oregon 2016 and have had my license to drive revoked. The 1st DUI was in 1975 in California the second in 2011 in Texas. I also have one arrest in 1976 for drunkeness but was not driving a vehicle. I plead guilty to all three DUI with no trial. I am 62 years old with bad knees making it hard to walk. I would like to know if I could ask the court to change the revocation of license to suspension so that I could get a hardship license. I have already called DMV and they say they can't do anything without court approval.
It's pretty difficult (read: nigh impossible) without a lawyer to get all your ducks in a row to restore your driving...
