Went to hearing and had continences, no plea yet. Any chance I could leave and have a liscence in another state?
If your license is suspended in one state, then it will be suspended in all states. If you skip the state, you'll have...
I was arrested for a DUI on the 27th/28th of September. My BAC was .08. I was not held in prison and released after going to the magistrate. I am taking this case to court and will do everything I can to fight it. Other than hiring a lawyer, is there anything I can do to help my case such as attend AA meetings. Thanks
The best thing you can do is to hire a good, experienced lawyer to fight the charges. Doing classes wont help in terms...
I recently completed medical school but unfortunately got a DWI between graduation and applying for my medical license. I have informed my residency program; they are aware but have not rescinded their offer. Soon I will be applying for a trainee medical license. Will there be an issue? I have no other legal history.
It will be an "issue" but it won't be a disqualifier. They are going to ask you about it, and want to know what steps (...
After a DUI, my license was eligible for reinstatement 12/18/13. However, I did not realize the limited privilege license expired at that time. So I did not go get a permanent license from the NC DMV until 2/1/14. So in essence, I lost around 1.5 months of time credited with having IID on my car. Instead of getting it off sometime in mid-February, it will now be 3/29/14. I have all paperwork showing payments from the interlock company proving I had it installed and had readings from service appointments. Can I appeal to have these “lost” months reinstated? Thank you.
Probably not. Due to the way the regulations are written, a person must spend a year driving subject to interlock with...
I keep getting tickets for driving while license revoked by a cop every day. Will they all get consolidated into one in court?
You have not told us if your license is actually revoked.
Approximately 1.5 yrs ago I was convicted of a DWAI in New York State (DWAI BAC under .07, a traffic violation as opposed to a misdemeanor). I have just moved to NC and will be transferring my license shortly. I understand that most states share information with a license transfer, however there is no statute for DWAI in NC. Only the greater charge of DWI. I really am scared that through the transfer the NC DMV will up-charge me to a DWI. I spent a lot of time and money ensuring that I was not convicted of a DWI. Can someone please give me some insight into this / whether I have any recourse if they do list my conviction as a DWI? Thank you
When you refer to convictions "transferring" you are essentially talking about the Interstate Compact which links of...
The assessment is not shared with employers or licensing boards?
A DWI assessment is used by the Court to determine sentencing and/or treatment options. Technically, it's not required...
