The statute of limitations for most felonies in Mississippi is two years.
I was sitting in my vehicle on a rural country road talking to my elderly mom at 7:44 pm when a cop pulled up behind me and got out of his vehicle and came up to my truck and ask me to step out, put my hands on the hood, then patted me down, took me to jail (he said), for public drunk. When I got to the jail and I verbally protested his action(s), he then trumped up the charges, DUI, failure to comply (what), using profanity on a public Road? All I did was protest being arrested because I was not drinking alcohol, only sprite, I was not driving, only sitting, the vehicle was not even running. They took me to the jail and they stripped search me, they put me in a holding cell until next day. They taped a ticket up on the cell glass door that showed a DUI charge.
I would advise hiring an attorney. While it is an expense, it is worth it in the long run. Many municipalities will...
He thought pill would make me sleep. It knocked me off my feet (muscle impairment,wide awake). I thought I was having a stroke . I was 60 yo and had high BP. I couldnt find my cell ph and walked into my yard on dead end street in last house ,saw neighbor, asked him to call an ambulance for me. He did and I sat down . When I saw vehicle lights I stood up and stepped into the str. First vehicle was a cop. He blocked the medical guys from even talking to me and when I and the amb guys objected, he arrested me. No tests were given . He said I was not to be charged and to be let out "free ticket" after I "slept it off" till 6 am. Ended up with my pic in paper as public drunk. Can I do anything? pic in paper hurt and estranged my adult and college aged kids?
Likely no. It's not false information. You were arrested. You might have a lawsuit against the doctor, though..
Recently I was pulled over for speeding and charged with a DUI in TN. My hearing is next month. I have retained council in TN. I live in MS, but my job is being transferred to the east coast. I understand that if convicted, TN will not take my license, but MS will. Then things with the license will be complicated because I will not be living in MS in a couple of months. I'm more concerned about how probation will work? Will TN care if I'm not living in MS anymore (as long as i'm flying back to attend classes and meetings) I'm not worried about expenses as keeping my job is my priority. (for the long run) Any advice will be appreciated. My TN attorney is only focused on TN and my MS attorney is taking a wait and see attitude. Should I call an attorney in the new state too?
You already have an attorney in TN and should ask any and all questions about the case to your attorney. When you get...
I got 2 dui's within months of each other. I plead guilty to both of them but my second was dropped down to DUI 1st, not 2nd. So since it's only a 1st, do I have to pay and attend the masep and VIP classes twice or am I able to do it once and knock both cities out at once?? (One DUI was in long beach and the other in diberville)
I would suggest contacting the lawyer that represented you on both cases. If not available, contact a Mississippi DUI...
I was arrested by public drunk, and I need to go to court for arraignment. I'm an international student, with J-1 Visa and I can't spend 30 days in jail. In my affidavit of arrest, the police officer put as witness: "my self and all passersby". Do I need a lawyer? What are the chances for me just pay the $100.00 fee instead of spend 30 days in jail?
Oxford has a reputation for being pretty strict about alcohol related charges, so your best chance of obtaining a good...
I was drunk and lightly grazed a fence, I was not in the vehicle when they got there so they didn't give me a DUI. I was probably very rude and belligerent.
You need an attorney now. It is possible they could try to amend. Please got counsel. I know myself and others offer...
