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...

Even if you had a civil case, you would still be liable for driving on a suspended license.
I got a cwof for 1st offense dui liquor. I went to get my license reinstated and they said it costs $1000. All the paperwork the
RMV sent me stated it will cost $500. The hearings officer stated the other fee was a breathalyzer fee. All of my court fees were paid in full following my case. Is this fee new in the state of Massachusetts?
No this not new, your license was suspended for either a refusal or a test over. Then you took the CWOF and a 45 day...
I was on a single car accident avoiding deer. Hit a telephone pole. Have no memory after hitting pole.
I must have wandered off from possible concussion. Was very groggy over the next 2 or so hours. Sick to my stomach/ headache. Ended up walking home. Had some wine to calm my nerves plus not really thinking straight. Very early the next morning I called police/emt. Went to hospital. My bac was below the legal limit but the concern was what it was at the time of accident. I did not disclose that I drank afterwards. Can the police use that bac to make assumptions regarding it hours before?
Consult local defense counsel and don't speak more about this online.

Generally speaking, a CWOF should not be considered a guilty for registry purposes. Consult with an attorney to...
