Columbia Law

I was arrested because the police said I smelled like alcohol and arrested and taken to do the breath test and blew three times. 1st , I was in a borrowed car & didnt know the tag was bad and second the machine didn't register so I got a refusual. I have been to court twice and both times the policemen didn't show. The prosecutor is now wanting to supeona the man because he no longer works for the police force. What will happen to me if he comes and what should I do. Also unfortunately I missed the 10 day window DMV. I had to get a public defender because I lost my job on account of the arrest . I am terrified. I had to move to SC to stay at my dads on account of this last arrest.

I was arrested for DUI in CT. I entered their pre-trial alcohol education program, court file was sealed, then I completed the program and the charge was dismissed by the court. I now live in South Carolina. Although the charge was dismissed, will the arrest still show up on a background check here? I am probably going to be offered a job soon and their application asked about convictions but not arrests. Although I was not lying by saying that I have no convictions, since I don't, could the arrest still come up on a check and cause problems? I've read somewhere that Connecticut is a state where employers are discouraged from checking your arrest history but I don't know about South Carolina.
It depends. If they search fbi records then yes, it will probably show up (just the arrest). Get fingerprinted, fill...
Every case is different. You could be found not guilty of both charges. You could be found guilty of both. One could be...
I now live in South Carolina. I have a warrant in FL for my DUI. Can I take care of it with payments or do I need to go back to Florida. I was on probation but moved to SC.
It sounds like a technical violation for absconding from supervision. You'll need to contact your PO and see if he/she...
This happened in 2010.
In most states a DUI conviction remains on your record forever
