I got convicted of a 2nd dui and my license is being revoked effective on the 17th. My car is under my name and I read on the letter I recieved from SOS that I need to turn in my registration and license plates. Does this mean my mom cant drive my car? She hasher license and shes insured on my car. Am I able to just transfer the title to her. Im so confused on what to do.
Speak with the attorney who helped you with your 2nd DUI.
Is this new one considered my 2nd or first when dealing with jail and driving privileges? I got into a car accident and charged with DUI over .08. I am on felony probation and out on bond from a domestic. What are my chances of going to jail?
For criminal purposes, this is your second. Secretary of State considers you a first time for suspension purposes if...
I got a dui and my child was in the car. Besides a dui I got endangerment of a child. Never had a dui or any charges with endangerment. Will they tell the fatjer what happened or the charges? Haven't gone to court yet. We are not married or anything
No is the short answer. The court would not know who the father is or where to reach him. You also say you're not...

My 6 year old son lives mostly with my ex-wife. She has been on several evening dates recently, and I have heard through the grapevine that she is driving under the influence. Obviously, I fear for my son. How can I find out if she has any DUI's?

When I was 18 years old I was convicted of 3 DUI's. 2 in 1991 & 1 in 1992. Was convicted in 1996 on 4th DUI. All were misdemeanors, and I completed all requirements. I went through formal hearing process and my license was reinstated in 2007. Unfortunately I relapsed and was arrested for DUI again in 2012. It was written up as DUI 4th or more and I was charged with a class 2 felony and given 3 year prison sentence. I was let off parole early and have been sober and active in AA since my arrest. Do I have any chance of obtaining driving privileges of any kind? I plan to move to Florida within the next year or so, and hope to be able to drive in that state at some point. Thanks in advance for any advice.
Unfortunately is locked currently stands because you have at least four convictions, one or more of which occurred...
My son refused to blow. The discovery dash cam video shows ONLY HIS FST. He did fairly poor on the FST. A long explanation, but a full dash cam would likely aid the hit/run defense as son was on the scene with his car when the police arrived. The other driver did not speak English, 3 squads, 4 witnesses, 4 officers & lots of confusion that would likely be cleared up by a full video. As of today, we don't know if the entire videos were not given at discovery or if they don't exist resulting from the officers only activating for FST. I already have rule 411, Kladis, law on State Police cams, Webster, Strobel, & Schmidt. Looking for: case law dealing with officers obligation to turn video on (i.e. "cherry picking the use of video") and case law supporting motion for extra discovery. Thanks
