Husband was sentenced 24months for 2nd dwi, is appealing the sentence but has pending case for 3rd dwi what to expect??
My husband no question, has a drinking problem, and a problem with common sense too it seems. He had his first dwi in2008. He was put on probation with a suspended sentence. He was charged with a level4 dwi. His 2nd dwi was in 2009. He was sentenced 24 months in doc with 90 day DART program. He was sentenced on April 7th 2010. Im 3 months pregnant, so my husband appealed the sentence and his appeal date is June 14th 2010. He also has a pending 3rd dwi case on June 18th. my question is...what is the worst and best possible outcome of this situation? And how long does it usually take for someone to get transferred from the county jail to the department of correntions?
I would contact a lawyer immediately and, if there does not seem to be a viable defense to the pending 3rd DWI, then...
Is it possible to get a "DUI" off of my record?
When I was 18, I was pulled over for speeding (10 over). The police officer suspected me of drinking due to the smell of my passengers. I had previously consumed a few drinks but was confident I was ok. I agreed to a breathalyzer and blew a .05. I was given a citation, not detained, and allowed to drive home. Under the advice of my paid attorney, I plead guilty (hindsight tells me this was a mistake) and I received limited driving privileges and basic alcohol education classes. This was settled a while after the initial citation and after I had turned 19. On my record, I have a DUI. This has been extremely inconvenient recently. I am now 22, attend a university, and seeking engineering internships. Due to the nature of my desired career, a DUI on my record can be troublesome. Additionally, I was recently denied a purchase permit (NC) due to this being on my record. Is there any course of action that can be taken to rid the DUI on my record? This was the first offence, did not have a previous record, and have not been found guilty of a crime since. Is it worth obtaining paid legal representaion? Or am I doomed to live with a mistake I made while I was a teen? Thankyou
There is a difference between a conviction for DWI (or DUI) and Driving After Consuming Under Age 21 in North Carolina....
What next for getting a citation for a dwi?
I was citated for a dwi my license were taken for 30 days granted I was given a 10 day driving certificate.I went to a drug assessment but they felt like it was unnecessary and denied me of the program this is my first DWI so what's the good and bad news

Can I avoid taking dui classes it's been 3 years since, being that it was my first dui is there a way to avoid the classes?
The classes are over 600$ the reasoning for my being breathalized at the scene was also an unfair ruling while i did blow well over the alcohol limit I was not charged for the accident that occurred I struck a pedestrian which I know sounds bad but I was not charged for that the pedestrian was carrying a case of beer across the highway and tried to run across. at the time of the accident the officer breathalized me only on the grounds that It smelled like beer which of course it would because the case of beer the man was carrying exploded the man was also heavily intoxicated at the time of the accident While I did plea guilty at the time I was wondering if maybe I could appeal my case with the dmv to something lesser some way to avoid the classes or if possible which im being highly optomistic because im a bit ignorant of how the law works but possibly get the whole dui dropped
Only way you can avoid ADETS classes or any form of treatment is if your assessor indicates in your assessment that no...
