I pled no contest and I paid everything including drivers responsibility fee
Since you posted in the DUI area, I will assume that was what your license was suspended for. Still, it is hard to...
I fell asleep in a cab and received public intoxication charge. I have been doing well on my 1 year probation. The last hearing the judge discussed letting me off early. Last night I was charged with a DUI for falling asleep at a stop light. I had a .14 BAC. How should I proceed? What is the worst case scenario? Best case scenario? Any advice? :(
Call an attorney ASAP. You are clearly headed for an OWI charge, and possibly a probation violation on the public...
I'm getting ready to file for an Administrative Review from out of state(3rd attempt) and I thought I had all the necessary pieces for a good case. But I've found out that my AA sponsor has relapsed during an ugly divorce and got a DUI. I have a great letter of support from him, but am concerned about his credibility now. I've put in a lot of work with him over the last 18 months or so and would hate to have to start over. So what are the chances of the DLAD finding out? Would they actually call him and ask about his sobriety? If so, will this ruin my case? Also, I haven't been getting an attendance sheet signed because I'm involved in a group where we are all close. Are support letters indicating my weekly AA attendance enough or is it better to get signatures for previous meetings?
You are not required to to attend AA. The Administrative rules says a petitioner may present evidence of a structured...
Currently on probation for dui & Subject to random urine testing. No violations. Everything was going smoothly following the requirements. Suddenly get a letter in the mail saying I must attend weekend and holiday breath testing. This was not on my original terms of probation agreement I made between myself, my attorney and the judge. Fast forward, I've missed a few breathe tests. I didn't have time or warning to adjust my llifestyle or work schedule to meet scheduled test times consistently. Ofcourse my p.o could care less and has violated me once for missing, and I'm at risk of a second violation for missing another. I have valid reasons for.missing but they're just excuses to the judge. My question is how can they just amend my original terms without a sanction or previous violation.
If your freedom is valuable to you, it's worth hiring an attorney. There may or may not be a legal challenge available...
no other issues in arrest ie altercations or drug possession etc
I am not sure what you are asking. It sounds like you are asking how or if you will get your license renewed since you...
My first dui offense in Michigan. I am on probation for a year. I have an interlock device on my car. I just got a letter saying I had a failed test. There is no way I failed this test because I have not drank alcohol. I have had to retake tests from not blowing right..how do I prove this? and am I going to have to serve 90 days and lose my job?
Are they saying you failed the test because it detected alcohol, or because it was not administered properly due to not...
My father in law was arrested for a DUI after a traffic stop. At a hearing, the Judge ruled that he was improperly arrested because Miranda rights were not given. The Judge ordered any and all statements and admissions be not allowed & used against him. The Miranda violation came immediately at the stop & BEFORE he did the tests. He did fine on most of his field tests, but one part looks questionable. Most of the tests were verbal, but one was a walking exercise. Does the sobriety test fall under the Judge's Order that all admissions and statements can't be used at trial? Again, most of the testing was verbal exercises, so it seems to me that they are statements/admissions, plus I read the penalty for Miranda Rights violations is the "Fruit of Poisonous Tree Doctrine".
Field sobriety exercises are not considered to be statements, and are not subject to suppression as a result of the...
