Browns Law

My boyfriend has had 3 DUIs now. The most recent one was in April 2012 but he wasn't convicted until October 2012. So about 2 years ago. Will he be eligable for a restricted or hardship license? We have three small children and it is becoming very costly to drive him to and from work 6 days a week because he works about 25 minutes away from where we live. On top of that, we have to wake the kids up every morning to take them with us. Hoping he is eligable to at least drive to and from work. Can anyone help us out?
He is most likely eligible for a hardship restricted driving permit, but he should discuss his driving record with a...
I was charged for failing a sobriety test - I was actually having a medical angina attach as the officer wrote my speech was slurred, confused -well of course I was I told this officer over and over I was having an angina anxiety attack -he denied me access to my purse for my rescue inhalor - then searched my car and seen that I take 13 meds -2 controlled is what he wrote the ticket on - well, I hadn't taken my meds that day and they had all of them at the jail, counted them and knew this - I was discriminated against today in court for I was given no chance to produce my proof of my condition/disabilities - I was ordered to take a $150 DUI evaluation class before I can speak to the States Attorney - WHAT ! I have proof of my disabilities - including the attacks -and want to pursue this
You really need to speak to an experienced DUI attorney in your area. They can help you bring up these issues and fight...
I moved from IL to NY and got a DWaI here. I paid all the fines, went to court, etc and it all ended here so I went to the DMV to get my license after the NY suspension period and IL had put a hold on my license. My question is what are my options? My license was expired and I paid the fine for driving without a valid license. Doesn't that mean I was driving without a license? How does IL have the right to punish me for something I did in another state without a license (the only connection to IL)? Should I get an OOS hearing packet and do that whole thing as it said on the Sec of State's website? Or is my only option trying to get it down to reckless driving? I don't want to go back to court so this is not really an option for me. Also can someone tell me if Im actually charged in IL now?
Have you paid the reinstatement fee or whatever is required in NY? You will not be able to get an IL DL unless and...
I was convicted with a DWaI in NY where I live. But my problem here is that my license has been revoked (as in IL has put a national hold on DMV registry) even after all of the court, state and DMV reinstatement fee and finishing out my NY suspension. IL did not give me a summary suspension of 6-months like would be for the average first-time IL license holder. Mine was revoked. First, let me see if I understand: - NY's DWaI (BAC below .08) = IL DUI - Expired IL license = still an IL license (last valid state lic) - First time DUI offense -> summary suspension of 6 months - CONVICTION of DUI w/o lic in IL = aggravated DUI = revoked. I was convicted in NY and driving w/o license was dropped. I was CONVICTED of DUI. IL cant revoke based on what my conviction WOULD've been had I been in IL?
Were you driving on a IL license when you got your DUI in NY? If so, your problems your facing are because you were...

In a DWI/DUI arrest case does police need consent of driver to have a Blood alcohol level drawn ? And if police does not use implied consent law to draw blood for BAC especially when intoxication and an accident may have been suspected, is that deviation from standard protocol.
Consent or a warrant. are needed for a DUI, but it doesn't mean they won't charge you.
