Car Interlock Violation
I'm a 20 year old VA resident. I got a DUI in North Carolina over the summer. I then applied for and received a restricted license in VA which required me to get an interlock device. After drinking last night, I failed my test when trying to drive today. What are the legal repercussions for me? Will NC find out? Will I go to jail??
Since you got a DUI conviction in NC, that state's laws apply. You need to contact the attorney who represented you on...
Can I lessen my 2nd offense dui (in 5 years) in the state of Virginia
My court date got pushed back 7 months which meant I did not have my license for an extra 7 months only to find out in court that from that point on my license would be suspended for a year and then 2 years of a restricted.

Facing a felony hit and run charge what to expect?
I recently got a dui along with a felony hit and run. I know for the dui i will be doing a minium of 30 days as it is my 2nd and my BAC was over .20 last one happened over 5 years ago. At my bond hearing the hit and run was brought up but i was not charged yet. My PD said when the da decides to charge me i will find out. I am told he is in the process of doing so and that may not happen until my court date for the dui. i am worried they are stalling and the person i hit used there insurance instead of mine. Trying to find a regular lawyer because i am worried about my family and what they are going to do. How much will voluntary rehab and AA help me in getting charges reduced in the hit and run and doing only 30 days for the dui

Steering/lock device -- does this new Virginia law effect a DUI received 4 years ago?
My son received a DUI approx. 4 years ago - breathalyzer .10. He did not immediately go back to get his license. DMV is instructing him that he is required to have a steering/lock device installed even though that was not the law when he received his DUI. He contacted a judge and to his dismay was told to get a lawyer...... All he needs to know is whether his DUI 4 years ago is subject to the new laws taking effect this year.
Yes, it does affect your son. 4 years ago, there was no requirement for ignition interlock. But now before any...
