I got a DUI in Kansas
Does the officer that arrested me have a time limit to turn in a complete notice of suspension or revocation form and any driver license taken into possession, with a sworn report to the DMV? I got arrested 7-3-2016 today is 7-18-16. I have called the administrative hearing regarding my request for a hearing. And they told me they have received my request but they said that the officer has not sent anything on behalf my DUI. So they pretty much don't have nothing on my DL. My 30 day paper will expired in 2 weeks. So does the officer have a time limit to turn that in?
These matters are mandated by state law so you should talk to a Kansas lawyer who handles criminal matters this...
I got a DUI
I'm in Kansas. My arrest was July 3. Today is July 14. Well 2 days after my arrest for DUI the officer that arrested me got in a accident and killed a lady. I believe it was he's fault and I think he is on administrative leave right now. So I requested my hearing to the administrative hearing in Topeka. I send in my $50 and asking for the officer to be in my hearing. Well I called the administrative Hearing and they keep telling me they don't have nothing on my DL that nothing is being turn in. I called the court and they said that no report has being made either. I only have 30 days before my DL gets suspended.
What is your question? If it is about the hearing, make sure you get verification that you actually tried to schedule...

DUI, administrative Hearing, Court date ETC?? KANSAS
I got arrested for a DUI on July 3rd and I got served the 4th with a DC-27 on the 4th by the police officer. My court date was 8-5-16. I requested my Administrative Hearing on time. It's being 38 days post my arrest and the officer has not turn in anything to the court or the Department of Revenue. I see a sentence on the DC-27 and it says that the officer needs to turn in the DC-27 within 7 days. I also went to court and they pretty much told me to leave that they don't have a case number that they will send a summons later. I cant believe they don't have a time limit to turn in police report or DC-27's. I feel like I'm just in the air till the officer wants to do something. I have talked to lawyers and they keep telling I cant do nothing but wait till the officer does something..LOL. Seriously??? Please someone what I can do myself because it seems like no one wants to help me???
So you spoken to a number of lawyers and given them all the facts and details of your case and then and all of them...

Could my evidentiary breath test results be suppressed if the machine did not print the results at the time of the test?
Due to a printing error, no actual results were printed at the time of the test by the intoxilyzer 8000. The results of the test were later retrieved by KDH. I don't know if the unit was sent out for maintenance to retrieve my results. I'm very concerned of any further use of machine before my official results could be retrieved. My official result came back +0.20.
Your question is one that we have had to address several times in the past. First of all, "suppression" of test...
