Can I take back to court the DMV's decision to revoke my Ma. drivers license for life if found not guilty of the DUI charge ?
I have been charge with DUI number 5 though numbers 3 and 4 were 20 years ago and both were not guilty findings. The DMV revoked my license specifically for refusing to take a chemical test. I personally know of a situation some 10 years ago were some one was able to get a court hearing where by the court ordered the DMV to return the drivers license. The reason for that 10 year revocation was due to being charged with a 4th DUI. I am hearing that in my case, because the revocation was written for the chemical test refusal and not a DUI number that the court will not hear the case for reinstatement. Any feed back you can offer is greatly appreciated and thank you for your time. Lou M.
I would suggest you contact an attorney that specializes in DUI defense immediately.
Do I have to show up in court the day my DUI/CWOF is up?
My DUI probation is up on 7/26. I am in MA. What do I need to do on that day?
Unless there was some specific requirement placed upon you, nothing. Your probation will terminate if you have...
Can I hire a lawyer to clear my driving records from a DUI from 5 years ago to be able to get hired at a car dealership?
DUI from 5 years ago. Blood test was performed getting at .24. No one was hurt just got pulled over and was taken by the cop over night. Lost license for 1 year. Now I'm in the car sales business but a lot of places won't hire me because of that. Live in Massachusetts but incident happened in new Hampshire.
Mass RMV driving history records cannot be "cleared", sealed, expunged etc.
Is there any way I can forfeit my MA. drivers license and privileges while my case is pending?
I am currently a Massachusetts resident. I've been working in NY for the past six months and have been in the process of moving to NY permanently. I recently got charged with a DUI in NY and at the time I had a valid MA. drivers license. I still plan on moving and hopefully continue to work in NY. My suspension in NY would be for a year, but due to the Drivers License Compact the RMV of Massachusetts would suspend my license for several years. I would like to serve out my suspension in NY and afterward attain a valid NY drivers license. Is there any way I can forfeit my MA. drivers license and privileges while my case is pending in order not to have a hold in the state of Massachusetts a year or two from now?
Typically you can walk into any DMV and voluntarily forfeit your privilege to drive; how that will specifically affect...
WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU RECEIVE A SUMMONS FOR A DUI?
I have been charged with an OUI DRUGS AND LEAVING THE SCENE FROM PROPERTY DAMAGES. The police didn't arrest me, I was taken to the hospital and a few days later received a criminal summons which I mailed back asking for a hearing. I was under ambien a new prescribed medication from my doctor. Unknowingly I grabbed the keys and my two children and we're heading to the pharmacy and I hit a light pole down the street. I called my sister to the scene, once she arrived I told her I was not feeling well and crossed the street (accident happened a few houses down) and when I got to my driveway i fainted. In the hospital they found alcohol in my system which I don't recall drinking nor grabbing my keys or anything that happened.
Failing to appear in court when summoned can result in a warrant. In a case such as the one you describe it is...
Can I get denied employment due to a CWOF from a DUI?
One year ago I was placed on a CWOF for a DUI in Massachusetts. Since then, everything has been taken care of: I completed all my classes, paid all my fines, got off probation, and everything was dismissed. Fast forward to now- I was offered and accepted a new job, pending a background check. It's taking a while to hear back about it (about a week), and I'm wondering if the CWOF is going to ruin my chances of this job? It's for a retail store, so nothing too serious like childcare or law enforcement or anything like that.
Since 2012, when Governor Patrick pushed through CORI reform [much to his credit], people with CWOFs have been able to...
Can a make a CWOF plea in Massachusetts without an attorney?
This is my first offense OUI. I have no other criminal history. I make just enough money so that I apparently do not qualify for a court appointed attorney, but I do not make enough money for a private one... I have been reading about a "continuance without a finding" plea, and I am wondering if I can make that without an attorney. If so, how?
Sure it's possible but it's not advisable. I understand your situation but now would be the time to borrow money from...
