How can law informant seize your vehicle if you were arrested for diving on a suspended license only, no drinking was involved??
The person pled guilty to a dui in Sept. He pled guilty due to knowing in this court system if you try to fight it you usually get more time, no lawyer was involved, I'm not positive he was truly over the legal limit, they have yet to show his blood alcohol level even though we asked, he asked for a restricted license but the only way was to get the driver machine installed, which was outrageously priced, he made his second mistake by going ahead and driving without this, for which he was arrested, he hadn't been drinking but they arrested him and confiscated his vehicle.
He has a DUI suspension which he drove against. In some jurisdictions, that is treated more harshly than the original...

Do I have to pay off fines to drive again?
So, as I begin please let me remind that I am not a violent criminal, I just made a mistake. I was charged with reckless endangerment (x2) and driving while suspended. I was given four years of probation with possible one year termination if my progress has met requirements. Also, 2500$ in court fines and fees and 360 hours community service. Part of my punishment for the first year of probation is that they temporarily suspend my license and after that year is up I could drive again. March 3rd is when I can legally reinstate my license. Do I have to pay the 2500$ court fines and fees on or before the 3rd to reinstate my license and the 360 in community service or after that first year can I just reinstate and continue with my monthly community service and payments of 50-100$ a month? Probation ends March of 2021
Most Courts want the fines paid up front before you get your license - so you have more incentive to pay them. But you...

Can my probation be extended because I didn't get an interlock device when I got my license?
Ive been on probation for a year (in Georgia) getting rides there once a month to check in. Sometimes a friend will let me borrow their car for the day. I got my license back through the TN dmv a few months ago with no problem. Yesterday, after I completed (what I thought were) all my probation requirements and paid up, my p.o. tells me she saw me driving and asked if I had an interlock device, when I said no, she told me I was required to have one to get my license back. She said she hadn't told me this because she didn't know I was going to get my license back. She said she has to ask her boss but I may have to be on probation for an additional six months with an interlock. Is this right? I don't even have a car in my name as all my money has gone to dealing with this for the last year and a half. Can I petition or fight back at all?
It sounds like you need to consult a GA attorney.
DUI in another state(not living in) can I get a restricted licence in the state I live in ?
I have a DUI misdemeanor in Tennessee(2016)(finished) and have what will be a first DUI in another state Georgia(2015) (the court is just now figuring out the judgement.) My Georgia attorney says they will suspend my licence in Georgia and send that info to Tennessee who will view that as a second, but all the penalty will be in Georgia. My question is for my first in Tennessee I was able to get a restricted licence with a breathalyzer(when I got my TN one, the DMV doesn’t tell you about the restricted licence but my attorney knew. Is this a possibly again, with TN view as a second? Is there another way? I just need to drive legally with a TN licence, is this possible?
Not licensed in TN, but in general it will be considered a second DUI and if TN does not allow restricted license for a...
