DUI in Kansas 4-5 years prior to today, currently live in Ohio. Fines and etc. are cleared, looking to get License reinstated.
I received two DUI's in Kansas, one of the charges being a Minor case. I now live in Ohio, and have been for more than a year. I would like to have my license reinstated without an ignition interlock device. Kansas states I must have it for one year, Ohio does not require it for my situation. Would a lawyer be able to assist me, or am I wasting my time?
A KANSAS lawyer MAY be able to help, but I think you would be wasting your time and money in Ohio. The interlock, I...
Second offense OVI, would trying to get started in counseling before pre-trial help get less jail time?
Got 1st OVI 2007, plead no contest. Just stopped last week for 2nd. Given ALS but I did submit 3 times for breathalyzer but got invalid sample. Did poorly on FTS but first try was in 6" heels. Tried again an hour later & thought I did ok, but officer report says the 2nd time had similar findings to first attempt, but didn't write specifics. I know it will not go well for me, even with a lawyer. I am wondering if I were to try & set up alcohol counseling before my pre-trial if that might be favorable & help reduce jail time. I could probably get 5 days off work if I had to but 10 would mean I'd lose my job.
I am not a criminal defense attorney, but entering into counseling prior to your court date certainly would not hurt...

Do I have access to view a persons written statement? Do I have access to audio recordings taken by the involved officer?
I was a passenger in a vehicle that I own. A friend "josh" was driving my vehicle and ran it into a ditch. I had a few drinks that night. The police thought I was the driver despite oral statements from every person involved, including "josh" who admitted to being behind the wheel. I was charged with OVI and arrested because the officer said that, "after further questioning," the 3 other passengers in my vehicle stated to him that I was actually the driver. "josh" was the only other person to write a written statement other than myself. The OVI was later dropped but I was instead charged with failure to control a vehicle that I was not driving. I would like to hear these admissions and see the written statements.
You should hire an attorney who can help get these items for you. You have to file a written discovery demand that...
