Third offense DUI, how long can it be continued?
My friend was arrested for a 3rd offense DUI over 2 years ago. He took the breathalyzer, which he failed, was arrested and lost his license. After 30 days, he paid the reinstatement fee, and got his license back - and has been driving without restrictions since it was reinstated. The court put him on a home breathalyzer monitor, 3 - 5 tests a day - which have all been negative for alcohol. The breathalyzer results from the night he was arrested are being challenged due to possibly not being properly calibrated. As mentioned, this case just passed 2 years of continuances while awaiting calibration records/results... How long can this continue? Is this something that should eventually be dismissed due to the amount of time that has passed?
Knowing only what you have written here, the answer is that it can be continued until both the prosecutor and the...

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.

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...
