Can I get a valid drivers license in MS after failing to complete community service, alcohol classes etc. from a DUI in CO
Pulled over for failure to use turn signal in an appropriate time to turn ratio. Pled guilty to DUI. Did three months. License not suspended at that time. Received 2 yrs probation, community service, fines etc. Upon release was unable to fulfill states requirements. Tried repeatedly to check in within 24hrs. Probation officer never available. Alternate PO not available. Living on streets of Denver. No money, no car, nowhere to go, nothing to eat for a week. Left state. That was over 11 yrs ago. License suspended now. Very stable now. Would very much like to have a valid drivers license. My question is > Do I still have to fulfill CO obligation in order to get a valid license in MS after 11yrs?
You will need to clear up your issues in CO. Almost all DMVs throughout the country share information through the...
Aggravated DUI and post conviction relief.
I live in Ms. My friend plead guilty to Aggravated DUI and was sentenced to 25 years, 5 suspended with supervised probation. This hugely out weighs many other Agg. DUI sentences in the area and in the state. The only ones I know it comes close to also involve either lying to police or other crimes. Even some of those are sentenced lighter. This was her second DUI offense, no prior felonies. There were no drugs, no weapons, she did not run. She did not lie. At the time of inditement she was given a public defender because of lack of funds. After the hearings I got a copy of defense discovery and found very discriminate and simply not true statements made by the defender. After the plea the assistant DA claimed that the reason for harsh sentence was because she left the scene. The truth is in the file with pictures and police statements. She was found at the victim's side crying. There is some who claim her victim was friends with the DA, another Judge and other officials in the city which she was sentenced. Now all I know we can do is post conviction relief. The defender of course refused and knowing what I know now we wouldn't want him, but we are still in the same financial position. I even returned to the Judge with copies of the file and now he refuses to respond. Please she is 26 years old. She did have a previous DUI, but was fleeing domestic abuse the day of the accident. What can we do with little to no money to pay. Plus, I have been told that most post convictions reliefs get denied or don't even get heard. Is there help?
First, I do not practice in MS. 25 years is not an unheard of sentence in a DUI where someone is killed. It is not...
Do I need a Dui Attorney?
I was parked with an open alcohol container by a lake. I have the music on when we walked from the pier. So when the police came to the car and shined the flashlight I had to to a field sobriety test, which I passed. So I blew in the breathalyzer and blew a .08. My fiancée blew a point .04.. He was going to be driving home anyway, which I'm sure will be irrelevant. We live less than a mile from where we were parked, btw. They did not take me to jail, however they gave me and open alcohol ticket and I have to appear on the 17th of July for a Dui? I could really use some advice. I met with a attorney the next day and we don't have much faith in the man. For the money that it will cost I want the best possible outcome, thanks for your time.
I am not licensed in Mississippi, so out of respect for any experienced attorney licensed in MS who answer your...
Does the traffic ticket for a DUI that the officer issues with a date. Is that the date you actually go to court??
I ask this because my loved one has already been to court over the weekend with his 48hr jail visit for a 1st offense suspicion of dui/other. He went in in on Sunday and was released Tuesday after seeing judge. He had 2 other tickets that were already taking care of 1 was proof of insurance, Seat-belt. The court said they would send in the mail a court date. Why would they still give you these citations with a date and time at the bottom of the citation/ticket??
It sounds like this person will be facing prosecution in the Madison County JUSTICE COURT, located off of Highway 51 in...
Regarding a DUI what is the difference in non adjudicate and expunge?
3 yrs ago my daughter got a DUI. We hired an attn to get it off her record. She fulfilled all requirements but when she applied for a job it showed up. Attn blamed it on slow courts and now says it has been Expunged . But when I ask for Documentation he said there is none because it was expunged. I called justice court and was told it has been non adjudicated but not expunged. Is it off her record or not?
Talk to her attorney. If it has not been expunged, there was no non adjudication 3 years ago unless a minor in certain...
What happens if you cannot pay a cash bond for your loved one of 1,500 for DUI 1st offense? Do you wait to see the judge??
Also charged with No seatbelt and No insurance. The person does have insurance but didn't have the correct card in the the time. The deputy said Court is on Tomorrow and I am bringing the proof of insurance on his behalf. What will happen next since we couldn't pay cash bond for the 1,500.00 (Madison County MS) Will they let him make arrangements on this fine??
Call a bondsman and hire an attorney.
What questions should you ask an experience lawyer/ Attorney besides what he specializes in and how many cases has he won.??
I ask this because we have spoke to 3 and all of them seem very eager. My loved one has been extremely quiet about this, as it has been mentally draining , scary with all the things going on with the law and enforcement. For hard working tax paying citizen you feel that you were taking advantage of for much needed revenue for the state.. We are just taking this all in slowly.
