I have to have an Interlock device installed in my car tomorrow & an at home device. Can I drink wine tonight?
I believe I must blow in the at home device every 2 hours.
Are you really asking that question?
My fiance is 3 days away from signing a 12.44 (a) which will reduce the amount of time he's incarcerated but will leave a "state jail felony" in his record. We are thinking on telling the lawyer to reset the court date because it was not fully explained to us the effects it will have on his immigration status and if in the future he will have difficulty re entering the country legally. Since a DWI with a minor is not an "aggravated felony" does he still have a chance to become legal and be admisable versus just being inadmisable for over 3 years?
This is an immigration law question. I am moving it there.
I have clean record
My answer makes many assumptions. If you are eligible for probation, and you probably are, you would be placed on...
It was my first dui conviction
More likely than not Texas will find out about your OWI regardless of the State that it is from. For sure so too will...
I was 51 and even though I didn't feel intoxicated, I did feel I may be at or over the legal limit. So I pulled off the highway, called a friend and she was on her way when the cop pulled up behind me. He asked me to get out of the car (it was running but in park). I refused any of the roadside tests so I was arrested. When I went to court, the judge reduced to an Obstruction of the Highway, I paid $700 fine, and serviced 40 hours of community service. Two questions: When I fill out paperwork for a job application, do I have to admit I was arrested? Even though the charge for which I was arrested was dismissed.? 2nd: What are the chances of getting this expunged 3 1/2 years later. It is affecting my ability to gain employment. How do I get a pardon from the Govenor? Thank
You are under no legal obligation to be honest on job applications. However, if you are asked if you have ever been...
I got my car stuck in a ditch and I had to ditch my car because I had a few drinks before the happening. It was towed to a storage and towing facility.
It is possible that you may face charges of leaving the scene of an accident, if you admit to driving, but that is...
Can I sue the probation office for making me do something that isn't required according to my judgment?
I am on probation for a DWI. One of the things required was to put an ignition Breathalyzer in my car. But I do not own a car and I have not had a valid license since my arrest so in my judgment It states that I must install one in my car within 7 days of owning or operating a vehicle . I do not drive at all. Probation is calling and saying that my boyfriend needs to install a Breathalyzer in his car, even though I can’t drive it, or they are going to make me wear an SCRAM devise. Both my lawyer and the DA’s office don’t agree with that and I have been on probation with no problems for 7 months and that only come up now. I don’t want to have to pay for a SCRAM devise, and if I’m forced to wear one can I sue, since it is not in my original judgment?
You can sue anyone you want. I don't see a legal cause of action here and doubt you'd find any lawyer willing to take...
