Reinstatement of a suspended license
I recently paid to have my license reinstated after a minor marijuana charge. I have paid all court costs/fines and the reinstatement fee to the BMV. I have the actual ID license that is the same before and after the suspension. It is not expired etc. Is this a valid license if I were to be stopped while driving by a police officer?
Is the suspension time up? You can always call the BMV and ask if you are valid.

Why would a suspected drunk driver who refused a breathalyzer not ever be arrested?
My car broke down and we were pushing it off of the freeway. My husband a boys pushed while I steered. We got it half way up a ramp off to the right of the line, had flashers, reflective triangle and vests. My boys stopped to take a Break on the back of the vehicle, I put it in park and a drunk driver hit them. My youngest was injured but my middles son suffered 2 crushed legs and a host of other injuries and nearly died on the scene as well as in the hospital. We live in the Columbus Ohio area.

DUI "Administrative Processing" how long does it typically take for FBI clearance (i am currently in Mexico city) ?
Hi, I am currently in the process of visa stamping in Mexico City. I have a DUI from 2014, and I've completed all things ordered by the court. The case was closed (not expunged) in June 2015. I attended my Visa interview on April 4th 2016, completed and submitted the Panel physician as directed by the consulate on April 4th 2016. and i am still waiting on any update from the consulate and is still in "Administrative Processing" showing last update as April 4th 2016. I am assuming they are going through FBI clearance right now. Could you please let me know how long this process might take ? It has been 1 month now since the submission of the reports by the Panel Physician. Please Advise. Thanks.
Weeks to several months or more. There is no set time frame.
Can I press charges against a drunk driver who rear ended me on my motorcycle?
I was riding my motorcycle home and was rear ended by a drunk driver. My bike is still partially running but I need to go to the hospital and get checked out. The medics came to the scene and I was standing and told them I just have some pain in by back and neck as well as my left appendages. I'm wondering if I can press charges against the person who hit me for damages?
You can sue for your damages and should find local personal injury counsel who will accept your case on contingency basis.
How can I avoid jail for second OVI offense?
Picked up for second Dui, last dui was 5 years ago ( I was 21 ). Blew first time did not blow second. The case has been drawn out for over 5 months ( lawyer had surgery and I was just kind of in limbo waiting from that ) and I am now currently pregnant ( found out about 2 weeks after being pulled over ). I lost my job and have been unable to get another being pregnant and not being able to drive. I have not gotten in trouble since the offense or have any records prior to that. I have not spoke to my lawyer since December, I have considered getting another lawyer because the stress has caused some issues in my pregnancy. I have no issues with probation or house arrest but going to jail is just not an option. I have history of bipolar and have been unmedicated since being pregnant and will not resume until I give birth and having never been to jail I'm not sure how I'll handle it.
To avoid any jail, you have to avoid a 2nd in 6 OVI conviction. If you are convicted of a 2nd in six, 10 days jail or 5...
