How do I get out of this dwi?
I got pulled over yesterday for failure to use a turn signal when they pulled me over they asked for license and registration and I have it to them. I then tried to reach for my marijuana and threw it into the font , they saw me and told me to put it back and get out of the car . I got out of the car they searched and asked me question like "what have you been doing tonght?" I told them I smoked a bowl or 2 . They put me in handcuffs and did not read me my rights. Brought me to jail then blood tested me and now I was bailed out my friend paid the full 3,000$ amount and now I'm trying to figure out a way to fight it so my friend can get his money back.
You need to hire a good criminal defense attorney for starters. Also, in the future, do not admit to having committed...
I never took my DUI classes in California and I now live in Nevada - how do I satisfy the Court and DMV?
I have completed everything the court asked except the DUI classes and it's been almost 4 years since I was initially arrested. I moved out to Nevada and I want to make everything right and get a Nevada License.
I am going to get a waiver packet from the DMV but I need to know if, once it is approved, I can immediately get a Nevada License? Can I take Online NV DUI classes to satisfy the court order in CA AND the NV DMV? Or do I even need to do that after the waiver? I have no plans to get a CA drivers license again so I'm not worried about satisfying CA DMV.
Lastly, if I have to take the online course, once it is completed will they notify the court of completion or do I have to physically drop it off at their office?
If there is a warrant for noncompliance with your court order alcohol program, the Waiver isn't going to help you...
I am a Nevada state resident and was recently pulled over in Nebraska. It was a police trap point with fake signs for drug check point. I was coming from Colorado and had purchased recreational marijuana. I pulled over on the road because I was scared and the cop noticed. He told me he was pulling me over for failure to signal. He said i seemed nervous. I told the police officer what I had and they took the recreation marijuana and paraphernalia. Since I was straight forward with him he let me off with a possession K2 or less than one oz of marijuana and a possess or use drug paraphernalia citation. I would like to know if this is something that I can get taken off my record after I pay the fines or is it not that big of a deal? I know I do not need to let employers know but is there any other consequences I should be worried about? Should I seek legal help? Thank you.
Unfortunately, you have to hire a Nebraska lawyer to handle the matter. In Nevada, you would probably be able to get...
How likely am I likely to be charged with a marijuana DUI?
I took a couple tokes of low grade marijuana an hour before work. I have a medicinal card. I was on my way home from work (6 hour shift) and I got pulled over for talking on my cell phone. The cop asked where the weed was and I gave it to him with my pipe. I didn't have my card on me. He gave me field sobriety tests I did good on the eye tests but poorly on the others. I weigh 260 and would not perform well sober. I spent the last three days in court and have an arraignment coming up for DUI.
You have been charged with DUI, so the answer is 100 percent likely you will be charged. If you do not have a DUI...
