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...
I was charged with DUii the first time and I didn't have any other charges beside this one, but I'm only 19 years old.
Can I be eligible for diversion program? And if so, after completing the program I will not have a DUii on my record, or have is that work?
Generally, a first DUII will get a person eligible for diversion. However, not all first-time DUII's are eligible, such...
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.
Does Oregon extradite from Wash. D.C. on a bench warrant for FTA for arraignment in a felony DUI?
I received the DUI two weeks ago in Washington County, Oregon, paid bail, then got on a plane to fly back to Washington D.C. where I live. No property damage or injury resulted from the DUI. I realize I'll lose the bail. I understand the minimum jail time is 13 months, could be up to 5 years - if convicted plus permanent loss of license . I think I'd prefer to walk away from the bail and keep my freedom.
There will be a warrant out for you. If the DUI is a felony, there is a very good chance you will extradited to OR,...
Facing first dui but wasn't driving vehicle
I went to the bar for a little to drunk so the bouncer had me call my brother to pick me up, which he has someone come drop him off so he could drive him and I to his house. On the way to his house my truck broke down, the battery had shifted and the cable frayed in half so it was unstartable from the point. My brother then had his friend come pick him up and take him back home, called the police, told them he drove the truck to where it was, it broke down. Thinking I wasn't able to get a dui because the truck was unstartable. The cops showed up, while I was in front of the car trying to work on the car, but was there alone. My question is if I get a the bouncer from the bar and my brother to hell in court to prove I wasn't the one driving that night can I beat this DUI?
If you prove you weren't driving and weren't in actual physical control of he vehicle (sitting behind the steering...
