What is the likelyhood that my DUI case will be thrown out?
I took all test and blew .08. The cop said I didn't have a tag light was the reason he pulled me over even though I did have one. And he said that I didn't come to a complete stop at a stop sign (which I did) on a street that we were never on. I have the two people that were in the car who would testify if need be.
Sounds like a pretty defendable case. There's a few great DUI lawyers down that way: Chris Ambrose in Thomasville and...
What will happen If I can't complete the Defensive Driving Course the judge told me to take within the 120 days I had.
I was arrested for D.U.I. in Feb. and was in court on April 12 where it was reduced to a reckless driving and I lost my licence for 6 months. I was also told that within 120 days I needed to complete the Defensive Driving Course. I haven't managed to be able to come up with the money yet and I only have 19 more days. I'm pretty scared about it because I have never been in any trouble other than this and the people I am working with aren't able to find work.
If you are on probation, talk to your probation officer; however, I strongly suggest you talk to family or friends to...
What to do if I received a DUI but I wasn't under the influence?
One night around 2am I was going to get some fast food. I had just awaken, so I grabbed my small puppy and preceded to exit my apt complex. As I am leaving an officer in my complex proceeds to trail me all the way out. As I turn and drive down a windy road my puppy jumped in my lap so I shifted the wheel slightly (touching the yellow flare bumps on the road) and sat him down. Immediately after a cop pulls me over and says I failed to maintain lane. I immediately told him when I spoke that I was nervous and shaky because this was my first time ever being encounterd by the law. After, he asked to step out of the vehicle because he smelled marijuanna , so I got out the vehicle as he stripped my car. Found nothing. He then asked to stick me with a needle for blood which I refused, After he gav

Georgia DUI
I received a DUI in georgia but I live in DC. I plead nolo contendere, which is essentially a guilty plea. However, in my paperwork from my lawyer it stated "I hereby authorize my attorney to enter a plea of nolo contendere/guilty on my behalf and in my absence to all charges related to the above styled matter and sign any and all necessary document regarding same to an ordinance which will not report on my criminal history." what does this mean? I also paid online for a background check on myself and nothing came up. Please advise.
Sounds like your lawyer did a "plea in absentia" which means he/she enters a guilty plea on your behalf so that you don'...
May I attend an out of state online DUI school if I received a DUI in Georgia?
I got a DUI and found a first offense online DUI class in Nevada at www.duischoolnv.com. It's only $95, a lower price than any other schools here. If I can get my judge to agree to it, would it be possible to take this equivalent dui school for somewhere other than in NV? It's my first DUI and I didn't do any damage, I'd want to take an online course that gives me more freedom and saves me some money. Thanks!
Depending on what court you are going to but the answer will almost certainly be no. You can, however, always ask.
