Could you give examples, and what punishments could be faced?
The nature of the punishment really depends largely upon the underlying offense that you are serving probation for. As...
I recieved a summons for leaving the scene of n accident, and my arraignment is this coming week. I just recieved a letter in the mail from the district attorney stating that they are no longer pressing charges and not to appear. Why is this and does this happen often?
It sounds like the DA thought there was some fundamental weakness in the case against you. Don't look a gift horse in...
i used to smoke before i got arrested but i no longer do, just to be sure i bought a home kit to test for marijuana and i failed.... will i be going to jail if i fail his test? my drinking is no longer a problem, aslo haven't drank since the arrest
Often times I see a PO look at the first test as a baseline. What I mean is that the officer will know that the first...
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.

You are certainly exposed to suspension. It is not the charge which determines it, but the outcome. It is in your...
I have waited the allotted time for my license to be released. The only thing is that MA wants $730 to release it. If Maine is going to make me get an interlock device, I'd rather wait and save my money. I know I have to be the owner of the vehicle and feel getting my license released may be just blowing my money when I could pay two months rent with it if I'm going to be required to jump thru more hoops for ME.
Since you are residing in ME you should either contact a local experienced attorneys that deal with drivers license...
Pulled over Friday night for not stopping at a blinking red, officer asked if I'd been drinking I said no, he preceded to do basically every field sobriety test he could do multiple times trying to get me to fail, thought I did fine but he handcuffs me after anyways and states I'm being arrested on suspicion of OUI and brings me to station for breathalyzer, where I blow a .12 and he brought me to jail, never once reading my full rights.
What is a relatively well I'll test. It certainly is possible that the church could be reduced. Your performance on...
