am going to press charges for assault and battery with deadly weapon and intent to kill who do I sue person and insurance or what
I am not licensed in South Carolina, but I suspect that the approach to this claim would be the same in South Carolina...
I was followed by a police officer to my house for about 10-15 mins. When I pulled in my yard and cut my car off he put the blue lights on me. I took the breathalyzer test and my bca level was .17 I was charged with DUI .16 or higher 1st offense I was arrested and fined 2,267. I was also charged with driving left of center and no dl and fined 237.00 a piece for those two tickets.
Willingness to pay the ticket isn't a guarantee that you won't face jail time. But I would encourage you to consider...
I was charged with a DUI in 2012 but it was declared nolle prossed and I received the order for the destruction of arrest records. My license has been reinstated. The DUI was in South Carolina but I have a Florida license.
Contact the Clerk of Court in the county the DUI happened. I doubt that the DUI was nolle prossed, probably dropped...
I ended up getting caught in a road block after a 12 hour shift, I went to go pick up my son and after I got him I had to pick up my wife. The cop that told me to get out of the car because my eyes were red that's what he said at least gave me the test after i told him about my foot condition. I believe the footage would prove to my wife at least that i was not intoxicated because i recently found out that being tired and driving is the same as being drunk and driving. If its not to late I would love to reopen this case because my license is my way of living Thank you hope to hear from someone soon
I don't think scientific studies bear out the fact that drunk driving and tired driving are exactly the same. So,...
I have had two DUI's in the state of SC. The first was in 2005 and the second just recently in 2014 (9 yrs). When I was pulled over for the 2nd DUI the officer said if I took the breathalyzer, he would only charge me with a DUI 1st instead of DUI 2nd. So I blew and it was a 0.10. I had a bench trial and went to court. At the court date, the charge was a DUI 1st offense and I received a fine of $400.00, ADSAP class attendance, and SR22 insurance. I got a letter in the mail stating that my license was suspended for a year and after the suspension I would need to have an Ignition Interlock system installed in my car. Neither the suspension or the Ignition interlock was mentioned at the court date, and my charge is still a DUI 1st offense. Can they change it after the bench trial?
The court addressed the direct criminal consequences of the offense. The license suspension is an administrative...
In south Carolina, it seems that there was an arrest made but charges were never filed. How can one go 15 years and never had this pop up until recently, there had been several background checks made in those 15 years. What can be done to get this removed/resolved? How does one handle an issue such as this?
If the warrant is legitimate then it will need to be vacated by the issuing Court. Administrative errors in lodging...
arrested in September for DUI. I refused to blow because I was not intoxicated or had a drink. I had a class b cdl license that was suspended. In march my 6 month suspension was up and got my regular drivers license. Just had court last week and they dropped my dui charge to wreckless driving. Since I was not convicted of a DUI can I get my cdl license back now or do I have to wait 9 months?
I'm not sure but if an AVVO DUI lawyer from SC doesn't respond, consider calling a local SC DUI lawyer and ask this...
