I was suffering from post partum depression at the time...had not had a drink in two years...went out with friends and had too many beers. I do not drink at all now. Have been diagnosed with Depression, anxiety and Bi-polar since the incident. I am on medication with my dr. and have been dong fine since my conviction almost 3 years ago. I would like to return to school but am finding many areas of study have restrictions on past DUI charges.
There is nothing you can do about the prior conviction at this point. Look for areas of study where your past is no...
DUI in 2012. Recently Missouri sent me notice of Driver's License Suspension 30 days - What should I expect in Virginia?
DUI in 2012 in Missouri, received 2yr probation. Missouri violated me for minor traffic infraction. Paid fine. Yesterday, Missouri sends me a notice of 30 day driver's license suspension - 3 years after offense. Is Virginia going to suspend my license for a year?! For out-of-state DUIs you have the right to petition the court. I'm pretty sure I would be eligible for restricted but looking for guidance. Also I have completed intensive outpatient treatment and been sober for years now.
All states are supposed to honor each other's suspensions, so Virginia is supposed to suspend you. You may ask for a...
What is considered 6 months for the interlock device in a vehicle? After installation or after 6th check in?
Would it be considered 6 months after installation date or after 6 appointments? I have my 6th check in at the interlock facility next week. No failed tests, VASAP classes complete, full compliance. I'm looking to petition for the removal of the device and I'm just trying to figure out the exact time I can do that. Thanks. This is a 1st DWI and no other offenses/arrests on my record.
Most judges read that law as 6 months from the date of the installation. So, use that date. Good luck.
I was giving 36 months restricted eitj interlock I did it and may 2013 I got it all done. Now I still live in Virgina. I am engineer and I would like to move out of this state. I did what they say and now I'm still fighting job opportunities here. Can I move away from this state and function better. Are there any other states that fit me right. Virginia is alcohol state it owns alcohol and its unforgiving to those who play by the rule. You can say what you want to say but I always say if someone paid the price they deserve fresh start. My driver records is good now. The justice system is so wacky . Why do people that do their time can just be left alone. I bet people are so selfishe they will let 50% the population not to be able to get a job and move on instead they want them suffer?
I wish you the best of luck but you are not going to get the guidance you want here. This is not the general Assembly.
Last year I was charged with DWI in Fairfax. The case was weak and was quickly NP'd with no motions or trial. Ever since then, though, I seem to be getting pulled over A LOT for infractions that I can only describe as BS (failure to signal 100 feet before changing lanes... etc.). In 16 years of pre-DWI driving I had been stopped maybe 3 times, each time being for something legitimate. I'vE had 5 traffic stops in the last 3 months--with none resulting in a ticket. What's going on here? When police run license plates do they see charges, convictions, or both? Will expunging the arrest help this? Moving out of state? Putting vehicle in someone else's name?
Dear Fairfax - It is quite possible that you are now the subject of "heightened scrutiny." However, none of the steps...
I was given two misdemeanor 1s for reckless driving and hit and run even though there are extenuating circumstances.
I was given two misdemeanor 1s for reckless driving and hit and run even though there are extenuating circumstances. My lawyer said at the first hearing that prosecuting attorney wanted jail time which scared the crap out of me. I can prove that I was undergoing a bad withdrawal from my Tramadol prescribed by VA as well as the car I hit had first tried to run me off the road. I have no criminal background or driving offenses. Can I really go to jail?
Yes. You can really go to jail. Your lawyer already told you that fact.
