2nd dui classified high. went to treatment 30 days. no problems. Jail time iam looking at?going to aa & checking counleling out
i recieved a 2nd offense dui and it was classifed high because i blew high results. I cooperated with everyone, no problems during the arrest. Had five charges. Retained a court appointed lawyeras well. I got all the charges dropped except the dui. I took it upon myself to enter treatment. It was an 8 week program and i stayed 30 days only because the focus was mainly on sexual/spousel abuse , nothing that pertained to me not so much dealing with alcohol. no problems. never in trouble did my work. attended all classes etc. before i left for treatment the judge was going to sentence me to 90 days. but i was enrolled in treatment. my question is how much a judge is gonna consider the treatment program when it comes time to the final sentencing? Jail time? i dont wanna leave my family again
You should talk with your lawyer. Jail is mandatory and it is likely 30 days with probation.
Is there a chance to remove this DUI from my record?
I am 22 years old with no previous offenses. I recently was pulled over while driving home late on a Saturday night when I was pulled out too far at a red light. The officer breathalyzed me and I blew a .12 (over the legal limit). There was three other passengers in the car with me who received MIP's. I'm trying to go to law school, and I'm a college athlete with a near perfect GPA. With a good lawyer, is there any chance a DUI could be removed from my record?
Perhaps, best to hire that good lawyer asap to advise after reviewing all the facts and evidence.
Can my DUI case be revoked?
While I was pulled over driving home the other night for pulling out too far at a red light, I was asked to take a breathalyzer. When I asked about the opportunity to take a blood test instead, the officer denied. After blowing, the officer refused to reveal my BAC to me when I asked. I was arrested and taken to detox where several officers referred to me by the name of a passenger in the car who received a MIP. At the scene of the crime I was told by the officer I was receiving 2 citations. 1 for careless driving, and 1 for a DUI (I later found out on my ticket, my BAC was .12) but the paper I received only states a total of 1 citation. On a few of my papers, my BAC level isn't even stated nor is my name on several sheets filled out by the officer. Is this enough of a case to possibly receive revocation?
No, typographical errors and omissions are not grounds for dismissal. Consult a good DUI lawyer in your area right away.
Is a judge likely to grant temporary custody against to parent who (going through a divorce) got a DUI ... Second offense (first one was 7 years prior) and could be looking at some jail time but has not been to court yet. The children were not involved and were safe at home. The mother (who got the DUI) is bipolar and borderline but is treated and both the therapist and the psychiatrist say that she is stable as long as she is not drinking. In a period of 18 months she was completely sober but did have a hypo manic episode where she was spending lots but nothing that ever put the children in danger.
I would say it is doubtful that the court would grant the temporary custody just soley based on the allegation. She...
What should I expect in court for multiple drug offenses?
In June 2016, I got a ticket for 4 drug/alcohol related misdemeanor offenses. I went on NE Diversion but got kicked out after I failed a drug screen. This week I have my day in court and I have no idea what to expect.
This is too vague to give you an answer. MIPs are very different than Possession of a Controlled Substance, which is...

Worried/ Why? No way to guess call dmv ask them?
Am I eligible to receive diversion?
I was in the passenger seat coming home from a party, with 3 other people. The driver pulled out a little too far in the intersection at a red light were we were pulled over and asked to take a breathalyzer. The driver was of drinking age and blew a .12 (legal limit was .08) and received a DUI. The other 2 girls and I (all of us are 18 years old) blew under the legal limit (I blew a .06). When the officer asked if there was alcohol in the car we were honest and handed him 6-7 cans of unopened containers located throughout the car, although none of us were in direct contact of holding any of the containers. We all received MIP's. I'm wondering the likelihood of being granted diversion (this is my first ever offense), the process of receiving diversion (if I need a lawyer, etc.), and anything else that can potentially help remove this offense from my criminal record?
Before doing anything you should discuss this with an attorney. You can use the "Find a Lawyer" tab at the top of the...
