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.
Depends where in the case you're at. What type of hearing is it? What does your PD say? Speak to the PD, they'll...
I got a DUI in Kennewick, WA in 2008, while going through a divorce and planning a move back to my home state of SC. I was to be assessed and take classes in SC. I began the classes several times, but never actually completer them. Now, not only has my license here been suspended, but there is a warrant in WA state for being in violation. This is really a set back for me not being able to have my license. What's the statute of limitation?
Statute(s) of limitations apply to the time in which conduct can be charged criminally. They do not apply to create an...

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...
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...
I recived 2 DUI's at Ft Polk LA in 2005 and lost my GA DL I payed my fine and did community sercive. Now 2013 Im in GA applying for my DL 8 years later, they tell me that I had something pending in LA and they need a letter of clerance from them. I called the public safety department there and asked for the letter of clerance, they told me that I need a IID instaled in my car and pay a fee of 50$ before they can do that. What can I do to make this record go away? I dont have a car and I really cant get one here without a DL.
If you had an attorney for your LA offenses, contact that attorney to find out if they have any advice that's specific...
A couple years ago, I got hit head on by a drunk driver. Unfortunately, he didn't survive. I had a broken shoulder, and lacerations on my head where I had to get many staples. Long story short, the police tried to blame me for the accident (driving left of center). Then my lawyer gets a copy of the toxicology report where the other guy was three times over the dui limit. So then all of a sudden they dismiss me being at fault of the accident. Would this be negligence since they didn't fully do an investigation on the accident the first time? It just seems like they didn't even consider my statements, even after I told them that I already heard from people that knew the other driver was drinking. And I told them that before they tried to pin the accident on me.
You don't have any case against law enforcement on these facts. Consult with your attorney. Good luck.
