I recently received a first time DUI out of state in WV. In WV a DUI is also considered a criminal offense. I will be entering a deferral program through that state of WV which will require a conditional guilty plea. Upon completing this program the DUI will be dismissed. One year later I will be eligible to have the charge expunged. I plan on applying to a nursing program in about two semesters which requires a criminal back ground check (NJ). With this said, will this charge show up on my NJ criminal background/prevent me from entering into the nursing program? Thanks!
You were prudent to reach out for help. You may have to disclose the arrest. Read the application carefully and...
No drugs or alcohol in my system I was charged with 4 counts including dui and reckless with no law enforcement present. It was seen by civilians all firmly concluding I was 100% in the right. An hour after the incident speaking to a dozen police and medical personelle left unsupervised over 30 minutes a cop decides he had probable cause since I had my head down and a dry mouth. The only reason they conclude charging after passing 3 breath tests their DRE decided my pupils were not dilating properly after 6 checks. I had prescription medication with me that they felt impaired my driving. I gave a urine sample but how could they conclude that it was taken before or after the accident regardless of the fact that I had not taken any that day?
All facts need to be reviewed in this case to provide an accurate answer. You should definitely hire counsel for this...
I am looking to buy a breatlizar from bactrack S 80 that is approved by DOT/NHTSA. However, my friend told me to buy another unit that can store data which are more expensive. Or maybe to video type when the test is taken. My question is can data stored by these devices be used as evidence to fight a DWI charge? How about if she videotype while take the breath sample? it is a christmas gift for a young person and I want to make sure that I buy the correct unit. Of course you should not drive when you drink but I think this type of devices are a must and very helpful. Pls advice. Thanks
There is no way having that device will help someone defend themselves against a DWI charge. I can envision scenarios...
I received a DUI charge in NJ (.1) in September 2012. I was working and living in NYC with a demanding job. I pushed the court case for months through letters to the judge. I would recurve a new court date in the mail. I did not see that the last date was not rescheduled and issued a warrant. I let it go for this long. Last November my license expired as well. I have a work trip in two Chicago. I need to fix this. I let this go on because I had been driving to work for so long and now this will affect so much more. What do I do ?
YOu've put yourself in a tough spot. Your only option is to hire a lawyer and deal with the DUI charge. You will not be...
I was pulled over for DUI and taken in for a blood test at a nearby hospital. four vials of blood was drawn and the hospital made me sign some consent papers. 1) if they believe i am under influence, are they right to expect someone sign papers ? later i was taken back to the police station. i saw these four vials of blood on the police officer's table. 2) shouldn't these stay with the hospital ? i did not question the officer at that point. I was dropped off home after that. Appreciate any answers to #1) and #2).
Under recent case law a warrant or informed consent is needed. You may have strong viable defenses. Where did this take...
