During the pedent lite hearing, we were told not to get rid of any assets. I recently learned that my husband told our 17 year old that he was giving his vehicle to him and that when he got his license he could get it. My husband bought another work vehicle after. 1) If my husband has problems, accidents, or tickets while the vehicle is in our son's name, will it become a problem for our son? 2) Was it lawful for my husband to change the title over to our son after the judge said not to get rid of any assets?
1) Yes. If your son allows his father to use the vehicle knowing that his father is unlicensed, he could be liable for...
He refused the breath test , spent one night in jail and vehicle was towed. He was restrained by 6 officers when he had gotten offended at their perceived disrespect towards him.He has a lawyer. He is normally a nice person but when he relapses it's a shame..We have been trying to get him to accept help for over a year since his relapse,Kids fear for him.He goes to court the 19th of this month.He has good insurance that can pay for rehab.He really needs help.His disease is costing our family much loss and heartache.
If he is found guilty of the DUI, then VASAP will be ordered. That is the basic program required by the state for such...
I am a Massachusetts resident, and received a DUI in Virginia. I was ordered to 5 days in prison (in VA), ASAP, fines, and to install an Ignition Interlock Device for 6 months in my vehicle. I've done the prison time, paid the fines, and am starting ASAP. However, I do not own a vehicle, and never drive. I live in Boston and take public transportation everywhere. The DUI was on a rental car. My ASAP officer told the Virginia ASAP office this, and they said I had to do it anyways, even if it's a friend's car (which I'll never drive). This seems outrageous, especially considering Massachusetts doesn't make first time offenders install a IID. What can happen if I don't comply with this provision?
Your privilege to drive in Virginia will never be restored. Did you request restricted privileges? If not, you can...
I was pulled over on the highway for "failure to maintain single lane". Did the FST and PBT. Officer said I did fine on the cognitive portion (abcs backwards, date/time etc) of FST but didn't pass the dexterity portion (did twelve steps instead of nine). Blew a .11 on the PBT. I got to the station for the official breath test and got a "deficient sample" reading. I conducted the breath test FOUR times, and complied with the officers instructions. Subsequently, I was charged with Refusal of Test as well
DUI/DWI's are very fact specific and are very complex. So, don't use this board to discuss the facts, instead use Avvo...
the officer said i blew a 0.27 i wasnt that drunk i had two drinks about 30 min before i was pulled over and i never took another breath test at 0.27 i would think i would be passed out
You are right. You would not blow a .27 with 2 drinks. Your lawyer should inspect the maintenance logs for the...
I failed an interlock test once during my 6 month restricted license and interlock period. I did not retest until that evening because I had to get to work with a neighbor. I realize I should have retested and would have probably passed very quickly. I have a camera installed too. I have no other violations and in 2 weeks was set to regain my full license. I notified my PO right away and even took a day off work to speak with him personally before the Interlock service was downloaded. I thought because I was at the end of my probation period my probation and if I was honest, my counselor would give me a break but he went really hard on me and I shouldn't have admitted to drinking the night before for my Birthday. I have not drank any alcohol this year except on my Birthday. Any Advice?
Talk to the lawyer you had on the conviction. You could get all your suspended time and will almost certainly not get...
I was stopped and arrested for DWI and Refusal in Virginia(Both 1st Offenses). I also received a PBJ judgment from Maryland for DUI(1st Offense) at the beginning of this year. What types of penalties could I face from these two charges and the possible probation violation charge? My residence state is in Maryland.
Virginia is not Maryland. If you went it alone in MD and think you may be able to do that here, you are in for a bad...
