    Bay City Mayor Chris Shannon proclaimed the day in honor of the city's public safety officer, shot in the line of duty in early February, at a City Commission meeting on Monday, May 18. "It must have been a terrifying moment," Shannon said of Murphy's service, speaking before the City Commission and more than a dozen police officers gathered at City Hall, 301 Washington Ave. "I can't imagine what it must have been like to face gunfire in Bay City, but I'm glad you're here with us."

What can I do about this? How do I prove it?
I received my 2nd DUI back in February in which I served 6 months jail with no fines or probation. However, as part as my sentence I was ordered to immobilize my vehicle. My problem is that I sold my truck on craigslist for cash a week after I was charged. I got a letter from the court today that the vehicle is still registered in my name and I need to prove my sale. I DONT EVEN KNOW THE GUYS NAME let alone his number anymore. I was told I have 21 days to track him down(not possible) or I will be ordered a show cause for contempt in front of the judge. What do I do? Can I be put put in jail again and lose the job I finally just got again because of this?! Seems a bit ridiculous.
Wouldn't the car be titled in the new owners name? It seems like you can get this information fairly easily from the...

“At my psi the probation agent said she is recommending straight jail time to the Judge. What does that mean? Dui 2nd.”
No chance for probation... does this mean I won't get good time or trustee time if granted?

I'm a nursing student with 2 years left to graduate and just got my 2nd DUI, can I still get a RN license or should I quit now?
My 1st DUI charge and conviction was in January 2004. My 2nd DUI charge was in 2008 but I was convicted of Failure to Stop for an Emergency Vehicle (b/c I was sleeping in my car when arrested). My 3rd DUI charge (2nd conviction) was in January 2012 and I was convicted of BAC > 0.17. I have 2 DUI misdemeanors (no felonies) and will be able to complete probation, my nursing clinicals, graduate with a BSN, and pass NCLEX in 2 years. Then, I know my first RN application will be rejected by the Board. After, I will hire an attorney and appeal. I can be granted a regular license, a restricted license, or no license at all. If I start now, I can accumulate 1,000 hours of community service, attend 500 AA classes, have 50 letters of recommendation and stay sober. Is this worth trying to get my RN?
Yes. It sounds like you have things as under control as possible. You should speak to an attorney who is experienced...
