My son is on supervision for a DUI. He has no income. He is unable to pay his $1900.00 court cost. Will he go to jail?
He is on supervision for his first DUI. He fulfilled all of the requirements set forth by the courts. His final hearing is in March at which time he is to pay his court costs of $1900.00. He has no income and is 28 years old. If he can't pay his court costs, his case manager told him he would go to jail for 30 days. Is this true?
Hopefully your son has a lawyer. If not, he should at least consult with one. Has your son's case been continued...
Received DUI in 2005 & retail theft in 2001 & 2002 -- Have been permanent resident since 1988
My court date is finally tomorrow I cannot express my fear. I was put in deportation proceedings after I applied for Citizenship in 2008 for crimes of moral turpitude due to my 2001 & 2002 retail theft convictions. I am now 36 yrs old happily married with 2 small children, boy 5 yrs and girl 15 months and I am 3 months pregnant. I have been at my job almost 5 years and I am deeply sorry for my mistakes and bad judgement. All fines, probations, supervison and requirements were met. And I do not have any aggravated crimes. What are the chances everything will be ok tomorrow? I entered the US in 1985 with H-4 Visa with my parents and siblings (I was 9 yrs old at the time).
You can hope. You've run afoul of the law three times in seven years. That may not impress the decision maker.
BAIID Device possible violation, questions..
I had an issue with my BAIID device. It is a FR9000 ignition interlock. I was driving from work andalready completed one rolling test. I then turned on the air conditioning and realized that the screen on the sample head shut off. I found this weird as it has never happened before. I turned the AC off and after a few minutes, the BAIID device came back on. I did this a few more times to confirm that the AC was causing this and it was. Later in the drive, it asked for a retest. I began to blow but couldn't get the timing right with the beeps. I thought the device was malfunctioning. There seemed to be more beeps than before. It continued beeping and being afraid that the car would turn off in the middle of the road, I pulled off the road, turned off the car and restarted. What should I do?
You can document the problem by contacting the installer but most of them are reluctant to help or admit their fault....
Hi, I was just issued an RDP along with the requirement for a BAID and I had a question.
I was wondering whether or not the SOS can see the times/dates of my breath samples into the BAIID to determine whether or not I'm driving within my allotted days/times and possibly issue violations based on that? Anyone have experience with this issue? I'm not planning on violating my driving hours but sometimes things happen--being stuck at work later, having to move cars around so family can get in/out of the garage, etc.
Yes. Every single blow is recorded. The SOS will not review each one as a matter of routine. The danger would be if...
Just arrested for DUI in Chicago. Blew 0.134. First offense. Can I get supervision with guilty plea/finding?
Officer pulled me over for following too closely. Proceeded with DUI investigation. Voluntarily submitted to breathalyzer and blew 0.134. Was unaware that I could refuse the test or of the consequences for failing. The officer told me that it was nothing to worry about since it was my first offense. I was never offered a telephone call until I had already been arrested and processed. Upon being released and viewing the documentation I was given a total of 5 violations, I only knew of 2 DUI & following too closely.
You are eligible for supervision on a first offense. You should consider speaking with an attorney for your case.
First DWI offense, in need of help!
I have only been in trouble with the law one time which was for a misdemeanor theft conviction about 10 years ago. I am now facing my first DUI/DWI charge and my head is spinning...Do attorneys accept payments? Free consultations? I obviously would like the best representation for my case and not randomly pick a name out of a book.
You are in the right place. Use the Find a Lawyer feature here on Avvo to profile an attorney to hire for DUI defense.
Are there any attorneys in Cook County (Illinois) willing to accept payments for a first time DUI/DWI charge?
I am scheduled to appear for court in Rolling Meadows courthouse next week for a DUI/DWI charge I am facing. Due to my finances, I was considering going with a public defender however, I would obviously prefer to have an attorney representing my case. I did submit to the breathalyser which came back under the legal limit I am sure and I refused the blood/urine sample. I am fine with having my license suspended for a year (the arresting officer told me this would be the case if I did not submit a sample) - I just do not want this on my record and want to be able to keep my freedom. I know there is a price to pay, choices have consequences, etc. If anyone would be willing to speak with me and can accept payments, I would love to hear from you! Thank you in advance.
Yes, there are many attorneys who will accept a payment plan for your case. But you're unlikely to find one on a free...
