What is the statute of limitations for a dui that happened in 1999?
I was convicted of a dui in TN in 1999 with a 0.3 BAC, I was arrested in a dry county. I paid all my fines and completed my community service within the time specified. I was and still am in the US Army. After I completed my requirements i was deployed to Korea for the next year. 2 Months ago I got a letter stating that I would have a warrant for my arrest if I did not contact the sheriffs office. Upon doing so they told me that i did not contact my probation officer like I was told to and they have not been able to contact me until now (even though I am still in the Army). They want me to complete another 40 hours of community service and pay a court fee. Because this was 14 years ago I no longer have the records to prove myself. Can they do this or should I try to fight it?
I advise that you direct this to TN criminal defense attorneys. Notwithstanding, based on your facts, you may be able...
I was told by an attourney not to take a subriority test. After taking and not failing , but doing poorly on the roadside test,
Finding no alcohol or drugs, I was arrested for DUI drugs.The reason I did poor is due to my previously broken femur bone. My miranda rights were not read and no one informed me that by refusing to give urine aren't blood, that I would lose my liscense for a year. I aslo was not informed that I have 10 days to get a permit to drive to and from work and appointments. I was incarcerated for 11 days and missed that grace period. My wife has a brain tumor n seizures, plus I have a 4 yr old that we can't get to pre school. So far, I have not been indited yet and nobody seems to be able to help me with my liscense or tell me what is going on. What are my options? I lost my job and my wife can't drive due to her seizure disorder.
If you were incarcerated for 11 days, that should justify the delay in sending the ALS hearing request. Get an attorney...
What information is required in a hearing request for my driver's license?
When I was arrested for DUI I submitted to a breathalyzer and blew over the legal limit. I am now attempting to compose a hearing request but I am a little thrown off by the "statement of facts upon which the contested case arises" and "a statement setting forth the relief sought." I'm not sure how much detail/explanation is expected of me and I don't want to provide too much or too little. I cannot afford a lawyer and I can't find any guidance on composing the request myself. I know that there's only a 10 day window to request a hearing and I'm running out of time.
It appears you are working with the DDS provided form. You are not required to give the facts requested. My advise is...
Why are the officers and the system in general harder on individuals who refuse Dui tests
my husband was arrested for DUI because he refused to take field soberity tests, breathelizer, and BAC after the officer stated they were zero tolerance. He and I did have 2 and 1/2 beers over 3.5 hour and dinner. After they arrested my husband the officer that stayed with me because I refused tests as well kept asking me to take the hand held breathilizer. I finally did and blow a .03. He was happy because now he could leave me. but if they are zero tolerance why was I not arrested and allowed to drive away?
The legislature decided many years back to enforce a harsher license suspension for people who refuse to submit to a...
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
You definitely need to hire a lawyer. You only have 10 days from the date of your arrest to file for an administrative...
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.
