How would I go about having my OUI in Maine taken off my record
How would I go about having my OUI in Maine taken off my record? It's been over 2 years. (If you look at all the facts I wasn't even driving I took the blame) I went back to school. I received 2 degrees now I have a great job in an environmental lab. (Mind you I'm honestly telling you I never drove and this was my first arrest ever) I would like to travel to Canada next summer but I'm not allowed with this.
99% of the time, the facts of your case do not matter after you are found or plead guilty. The only time the facts...
I have a felony OUI (3rd offense) hanging over me. How long does the DA have to indict me (its been 3 months). Will the DA deal
I believe I could supply the DA (Kennebec) with some information unrelated to my case. These would be drug related. I know of one specific individual that could more than likely lead the DA towards narcotics dealers. He has stolen property (tools $1000 worth) from me and I have the proof. I am hoping to use this before I have him arrested. I know for a fact he smokes pot, I strongly suspect he also does heroin. He actually has pointed out a "dealers" house to me.

Why was I issued a conditional license (i.e zero tolerance) when my infraction occurred in 1994?
Arrested for suspicion of O.U.I in 1994. I had a plea bargain arrangement with the D.A to serve 7 days in jail and pay a fine of $500 and there would be no further consequences. When I moved back to Maine I then had to pay a $50 dollar reinstatement fee (which I did) and then received a letter from the Secretary of State saying I was zero tolerance until April 2022. At the time of my case I lived in Georgia so I had no need to reinstate my license in Maine at that time so I did not. Now I have to wait 10 more years from my reinstatement in 2012 to be considered not zero tolerance? In essence a 28 year conditional license since I drove on my out of state license in Maine every summer.
Because you waited to pay the reinstatement fee. If you got caught driving in Maine prior to paying the restoration fee...
If i am a minor charged with transporting alcohol will I lose my licence?
While driving home I was pulled over and my car was searched. I had two Smirnoff bottles which were confiscated I was charged on the spot with transporting alcohol by a minor.
You are certainly exposed to suspension. It is not the charge which determines it, but the outcome. It is in your...

It is not likely they will extradite you for the OUI, unless it has been charged as a Felony. What will happen if you...
Can a judge overrule the terms of a DUI plea offer?
First offense DUI in Maine. BAC .13, no aggravating factors. Not facing jail time. DA offered to reduce charge to DTE provided I complete 48 hour ASP, which I would have to pay to do and hesitant to because of sleep, physical issues that may limit ability to complete ASP comfortably, but will suffer through to get the DTE vs DUI. Just wondering if lawyer can request the ASP be dropped due to the fact that I'm not facing jail time to begin with.
For the most part, judges do not get involved in plea agreements. And when they do it is because they do not think the...
