Will I get a DUI?
On Saturday night I had been driving home and fell asleep on the wheel and crashed into a tree. My car was totaled the police and ambulance came and had asked me what happened I told them I had worked a double shift and was tired and ended up falling asleep on the wheel. I had consumed alcohol but when they asked me if I had I said no and they seemed to have believed me. I was not asked to perform a breathalyzer or any sobriety test but was taken to the hospital on a stretcher and at the hospital they did a regular routine blood test. They said nothing about my blood test but on my hospital report it said right foot fracture, alcohol intoxication. The doctors also did not say anything to me about my BAC. I have received a citation in the mail for staying outside of marked lane and speeding but nothing for a DUI. I am wondering will the hospital give my blood test to the police and notify them I was drunk? It's been a week and I still haven't heard anything and am just a little nervous.
If the police went ahead and issued you a citation for the speeding and the marked lane violation then in it is...
I lost my license to operate a vehicle in massachusetts in 2005. Repeat offense under Melanie's Law. Did not take breathalizer.
Lost for 5 years for no breathalizer and 8 year for multiple offense. So i satisfied the 5 and I'm 2 1/2 in to the 8. What are my chances of reinstatement? What is the estimated cost?
Given the length of the suspension it appears that you had a 3rd offense OUI. If this is the case you can apply for a...
Can a cop charge you with an OUI if you were in a parking lot?
I was at a McDonald's parking lot and the cops came to my car and accused me of speeding away from a bank when I didn't and said that I needed to take a Breathalyzer. After about 5 Breathalyzers that were all below the limit, the 6th one read that it was 1 point over. They arrested me and at the jail they were calling me clowns and saying I was gonna die. I wasn't even driving when they stopped me. How long will my license be suspended for and should I hire a lawyer to defend myself?
You should hire an attorney. During your arraignment, if you are not accompanied with an attorney and if you qualify...
DUI/DWI in MA does it show in a cori and/or background check
In 2005 I plead no contest to a DUI/DWI charge. I want to be a nurse in a few years and was wondering if the DUI/DWI will show up on a CORI and/or criminal background check. I was told by the lawyer i had that it would go away after 5 years , and would only be brought back if i got another DUI/DWI. does anyone know the correct answer ??
You were arraigned on the OUI charge and that means that it will appear on your CORI, regardless of the way the case...
Got 2nd DUI last Sept. in California but have moved to Boston. Didn't get a restricted license. How can I get LI in MA.
I got convicted for my 2nd DUI in Redwood City CA last September (first one 6 years prior in Santa Clara CA), and have moved to Boston MA. I got my DUI classes transferred to online by the court and did not opt for a restricted license while in CA. Can I apply for a license in Boston through Termination of Action in CA? When can I do that -- I was told after a year but when I called the Mandatory Actions Unit, the clerk told me it was a 2-year suspension and that I could not apply for Termination of Action for 2-year?!?! Is this correct? How can I obtain my license in MA now? Please help.

Not Guilty DUI.
I was found not guilty of a DUI in Massachusetts by a Judge and he later allowed sealing of my CORI. If I now try and drive to Canada will Canada see this or will they look at the FBI database? I was told even if my CORI is sealed in Mass it could still be present in the FBI database.. What would Canada use to determine ??
If you're curious about what will show on your record, conduct a live scan background check on yourself. Sir, this isn'...
DUI " Not Guilty" sealed CORI
In a nutshell...... I was accused of a DUI by Mass state police. I went to court and was found " Not Guilty" by a judge. I later petitioned the court to seal my CORI and the judge allowed this. Do I now have to petition the state police and FBI to correct this ?
I do not believe you can seal it is against the FBI or the state police
