Failed urine test in treatment while on probation
Been on probation for a few months for a dui. They placed me on scadd, which is for alcohol and substance abuse. They gave me a urine test when I went in for evaluation, I apparently tested positive for thc, smoked almost a month ago. Gave clean urine to probation my first time there and just wondering what is going to happen when I see my p.o next week.
Probably nothing will happen if your second test was clean and you explain that the first test was positive because of...
Can I ask the DMV to suppress or otherwise absolve a drug and alcohol training from my driving record?
I was ineligible to be hired by a company because my driving record showed that I had completed a drug and alcohol training course. Their insurance company couldn't cover me becuase they equated the course to mean I once was arrested for drinking and driving. This is the only item on my driving record which happened in 2010 and I have no other criminal record.
It will remain on your DMV record for approximately 7-10 years. You can always ask but highly unlikely to be successful
Will I lose my cdl for life?
I got a DUI yesterday in my car and currently hold a cdl. I also had a dui when I was 19, 8 years ago. My first offense I went thru alcohol classes and thought that it was taken off my record, and did not hold a cdl at that time. I know that a second offense for cdl drivers is a disqualification for life. Am I going to lose it?
I can't answer your question. There are not enough facts. Maybe you have a defense to the new DUI charge. You have a...
Is there any pro-bono attorneys in eastern CT that help with DMV licence reversal hearings?
I have a 3rd DUI convicted in 2007. I have done everything required by the DMV to get a hearing to reverse my license revocation. I am a full time student that is about to start working in the field I am studying but I just do not have the money to pay an attorney to represent me. I could do a payment plan but I have never herd of an attorney that would do such a thing.
Most DUI attorneys work on a payment plan, however, I don't know any DUI lawyers who work for free. You have to...
On probation and got my 1st DUI.
I was parked at a rest area for over 2 hours. I'm on probation for 6th degree larceny with 4 months to go. I was sleeping in the car when a cop knocked on the window. I picked the keys up from the floorboard, put in ignition to roll down window. Did 2 field sobriety tests and cop kept barking different orders during the test and saying what did I tell you to do? I did everything he asked. He put me in cuffs and said I was under arrest. Was informed that another cop followed me for 10 miles after almost hitting him, which was impossible because I was parked there for at least 2 hours. I still blew .15 but it's not that I'm trying to beat the charge, it's that I'm the primary source of income for my parents and going to jail would kill them. I can't afford an attorney so I need help.
If you can't afford an attorney, you need to ask the court for one. That's your right. Don't do this without a lawyer.
This is my 1st DUI, however I'm on probation for 4th degree larceny. Should I expect a VOP?
The DUI happened in a different part of the state than where I'm on probation for. However, my fear is that I will be violated of probation. I don't actually deal with a probation officer anymore, I deal with the state program and give random tests every 3 months. I have 4 months left of probation. I was parked at a rest area (sleeping) but had to put the keys in the ignition to roll down the window so I wasn't pulled over. Any thoughts on this? Does CT give 1st timers jail or just a program? Im already looking into a program here, wondering if I do it before it's ordered it might help me.
Getting into a program early will help. If the court allows you to use an Alcohol Education program, you might be able...
A person I know has a failure to appear warrant for court cases involving narcotics/DUI. Do I call the cops with his location?
This person also owes me an extreme amount of money which I believe he committed Larceny to obtain this money however the police have said it is a "gray" area. Will the police arrest him if I tell them his location when he checks in on a social network, does this help prove this individual has bad character and fraud-ed me into loaning him money?
His arrest on the warrant wont have any impact on whether or not any action will be taken about the "larceny" case....
