Are there DUI lawyers who will just do sentencing?
I've already pled guilty to a DUI, but haven't been sentenced yet. My lawyer hasn't answered my calls or emails in the weeks since pleading. I have my sentencing hearing coming up and I'm not sure what to do. Are there lawyers who will help me at just the sentencing hearing? Or can I do it myself? I'd like someone to be able to share with the judge the classes I've already taken and other things to take into consideration. What should I do?
Yes, but it's concerning that there has been such a lack of communication from the lawyer you retained. You can...
Is there a Colorado State equivalent to California's DUI First Time Offenders class?
I was charged with a DUI in CA about 4 years ago at age 20. I moved to Colorado before beginning the first time offenders class. I completed every court requirement except the class, which I believe is actually a DMV stipulation. I am not certain. Is there a way to complete the requirements from CO?
The answer is yes. The key is finding our first the curriculum requirements of the class at issue, i.e. how many hours...
License suspension because of DUI/DWAI
I am waiting for my DMV hearing (submitted the request in writing, not in person). I have not received my temporary permit yet. I am assuming my license will be suspended at the hearing for 1 month (1st offense DUI (.09). Can my lawyer apply the time I have been without a license (waiting for the hearing, and not yet received my temporary permit) to the time when it will be in all likelihood taken away? For example, after my 7 day period, I have been without a license for about a week. If it takes another week to get my temporary permit., can these 2 weeks without the license be applied to the suspended period, so that after the hearing, it would be 2 weeks without (2 weeks prior + 2 weeks after) hearing? Kind of like time served?
I agree with the way you have analyzed the time period and it definitely sounds correct to me but you need to contact a...
