The statute allows the arresting agency to seize a motorized vehicle used in the commission of the offense of DUI in...
Was pulled over for probable cause, no traffic violation. I did all the wrong things at the time of arrest, the PBT was .09. Failed FST, Hour later at the station, it's .14. I figure it will be very hard to beat. Could a motion to rescind be granted for the PBT being inaccurate due to use of an inhaler within 20 min. or so? As for DUI, is it better to try to get supervision for a first offense, or try to get it reduced to reckless driving?
There are many possible factors that go into choosing a strategy for DUI defense. In my opinion, hiring an experienced...
I am ON supervision for a DUI. I am 18 months into a two year supervision. Here is my question: Will this show on a background check for employment? And if so, how? I was told if I successfully complete it will not show as a conviction, but since I am still 6 months away from completion, how does it show?
If you were convicted, the the DUI will, or at least should, show up on a criminal background check. Who told you that...
Will I still have to get high risk insurance for 3 years even though I have had my license the last 12 years and have a good driving record? Do I still get revoked and have to get a permit to drive to work? Does the state suspend your license for a year then revoke it? Since this is their error will they be more lenient with me since I have been driving 12 years with a good record for those 12 years?
Yes the state may impose the revocation even years later. The remedy was for you to take action back in 2001. Instead...
I got a paper from the state saying my license is being revoked because of a dui 13 years ago. I was put on 1 yr probation, classes, court cost and my license was suspended (I got a paper from the state saying suspended not revocation)for 1 yr. I was discharged from probation after completing everything. I paid my reinstatement fee to get my license back after the year of suspension. I have had my license for the last 12 years and have renewed it at least 3 times. Now the state is saying my license is going to be revoked because I didn't go to a hearing.
The government may still try to take this action.
The four tickets were battery , obstructing a police officer , consumption of a minor , and acceptance or purchase of alcohol of a minor . I was at my house when i was arrested .

I am curently on court supervision for a DUI . I want to know how this will go over in court when they have no proof or evidence of me consuming alcohol . when they came to my house they just walked in . these are city charges not county or state . i am getting a lawyer .
How do you THINK this will "go over in court?" You are getting a lawyer. That is the smartest thing you could do...
I have a valid Illinois CDL license for my employment. How might it effect this. They are telling me it will be sealed in South Dakota. How does this effect my Illinois CDL?
Reckless alone will not DQ the CDL. However, it will be a serious violation and if you have two of those in three years...
