I have a warrant from 6 years ago. DUI I think. I did the class, house arrest, and got my license back. I paid most the fine but moved and haven't paid it off. I plan on it when I get my taxes. Will I go to jail? I'm in Arkansas
Yes you need a lawyer - one familiar with the court that has issued the warrant and with the prosecutor who will be...

I was pulled over last march and got a dwi in arkansas. I have not gone to court yet, my attorney is taking it to trial in Jan.
I am being transferred to Colorado by the company I work for on Dec 1. It was suggested by the law office I am working for that I wait at least 6months before I try to get a Colorado license to avoid having a suspension in Colorado. My license is currently restricted in arkansas. I will be done with my alchohol classes and be able to get the interlock system off of my vehicle on Nov. 26th here in arkansas before I leave. Colorado told me that I have to get a Colorado drivers license within 30 days of working in Colorado. Law office said that if I am convicted in arkansas that the state will report the DUI to whatever state I am currently holding a drivers license in. I will need to get new car insurance in Colorado too. Trying to avoid Colorado suspension and 9 m. More of interlock. HELP
Attorney is correct -- your DUI problems in AR will be known to CO if you are convicted. Hope you have a GOOD lawyer...
So if someone gets 1st DWI & reckless driving ticket , even blew .15 or more they should get a lawyer ?
My daughter hit another auto , they left so she continued down the hwy with damaged car mainly to front passenger side . So they gave breath .15 plus not sure . They arrested her , after about 5 hrs let her call someone to come pick her up . She got DWI & driving reckless ticket , 1st time for either . Last ticket she got was speeding ticket back in 2011 . She works full time , has never been in trouble and pays all of her bills on her own . She was suspended today from her job , that she has been at for 3 years . They told her if she didn't have the charges dropped she would be fired . Her court isn't until Nov 25th , I just don't know what she should do .
The most important thing you can do for her is hire an attorney. Her DUI is not a "simple" one and even for those, you...
Would out-of-state DWI/DUIs count towards the number of offenses in a new state? Specifically from GA to AR.
I have a valid out-of-state license which was suspended for not submitting to the field sobriety tests. I requested a blood test be administered, but the officer charged me with refusing the BAC tests entirely. I am curious this will be treated as a first offense DUI in Arkansas. The Georgia offense occurred 4-5 years ago.
You are giving some mixed information here. Are you asking specifically about a prior DWI conviction or a prior refusal...
Can my daughter hire a attorney to go in her place to make her plea in court , so she won't have to miss work ?
This is for DWI & wreck less driving , both are a 1st for her
You should speak to a local attorney about the possibility of that, however, I believe that she will have to appear...
Husband had shoulder surgery 5 weeks ago and was told to be off work for 12 weeks. I am the only source of income until he can go back to work and I am afraid I may lose my job as I am a seasonal worker and employment is just picking back up. Would a judge continue this matter until my husband can return to work? I'm not trying to avoid the jail time or plead not guilty, I just want to keep from losing everything in the meantime. Court is tomorrow and I have been appointed a public defender whom I've tried contacting a few times with no luck. Tomorrow will be the first time I can speak with him to ask him where I stand. Please share your thoughts! Thank you.
I would have a long talk with your attorney, explain to him what is going on, and hopefully he can convince the judge...
