West Virginia DUI Question
5 years ago I was charged with DUI in WV. The charges were reduced to reckless driving. I got a letter from the WV DMV saying I had to take classes. When I called they said since I was a PA resident that I would have to call PA DMV to see what they wanted me to do. When I called PA they said they had no record of it so as far as they were concerned I didnt have to take any classes. I just moved to Ohio and tried to get a new licence but was flagged by WV. Will I have to take the classes and if so will I be able to take them somewhere in Ohio?

If I was given an underage consmption ticket, and the BAC was impossibly high, >.5, could I get off of the ticket on that fact?
So I recently recieved a ticket for underage consumption. The ticket is for a whopping $550. When I was breathalyzed I blew a .5 and on the ticket he put .5. Obviously this is impossible. If I blew a .5 I wouldn't have to worry about the fine because I would be dead. I was given a court date this thursday.
