Should my son retain a DUI lawyer? He was arrested for drunk driving but he was not actually driving.
He was sitting in his car, in the parking lot of his College residence, listening to some music, when the police came over and arrested him. He had been drinking. He tested at 190 milligrams.
He should at least consult a DUI attorney for his opinion.
After a DWI conditional discharge is completed, will the court send a letter stating I have completed the sentence?
Convicted of a DWI. Completed the conditional discharge of a year. Signed an affidavit stating I would not drive a car without an Ignition Interlock. DMV said a letter of completion is needed in order to get the a4 restriction (IID) off my drivers license.
You can go to the Clerk's office and request a certificate of disposition showing the conditional discharge period has...
Was arrested in 04 for dwi. Didnt realize used brothers name. Avoided it till years later when brother got fired for criminal background. Was pressured into pressing charges but never did. What do I do now? License is expired. Affraid to apply for a new one.
2 years. What happened to the case under your brother's name?
I was charged with a DUI in NY. There was a trial without jury. During the trial, the trooper who arrested me was asked to point me out in court. He said "that's her with the blue sweater. I was wearing a white blouse. He misidentified me as far as what I was wearing. He wasn't even close. Does this play a factor in the outcome if I pursue it. I have already paid my fines, and driver responsibility fee. My license has been revoked for at least 6 months. I am wondering if this can all be overturned?
Please review my answer - and my colleagues' answers - on your prior post.
I got arrested for my second DWI. I was suppose to only do six months of counseling however, I missed the first month. So the judge said I could either go to jail for 90 days or participate in drug court. I am currently in drug court and it is really holding me back from moving on with my life. I am a 23 year old student, not an alcoholic or drug addict, just someone who has made two terrible mistakes. Is it possible to get early release from drug court? If this is not possible, if I ended up dropping out from the program and taking the 90 days, how long of the time would I actually serve?
I suggest that you contact your attorney. He or she would be in the best position to advise you. If you do drop out, I...

What you were wearing at the time of the arrest? I doubt it is sufficient to reverse the conviction. Did you claim you...
I understand this is usually reduced to dwai if there are no extenuating circumstances like accident or injury or issues with the arresting officers, so I'm planning to represent myself. My questions are 1st procedural. The judge at arraignment will ask for my plea. Obviously I want to plead not guilty, but at what point do I request a hardship hearing and then a pretrial conference? Also, In regards to the hardship hearing, I have my work schedule from both my jobs for the past 2 weeks, I have pay stubs to prove employment, I have character reference letters from my immediate supervisor at 1 job and the co-worker who trained me at the other job, and I have printed map pages showing the 50 mins commute to job 1 and the 15-20 minute commute to job 2 . Is that enough? Anything I can add
So you don't want to pay for a lawyer yet you want a lawyer to tell you what you need to do? Really? I guess all our...
