How do I get probation reinstated?
My boyfriend was on probation for driving on a suspended revoked drivers licenses. Its his 5 offence. We tried to get him back and forth to his po. But the car broke down and due to the economy we both lost our jobs. The po office is 15 miles away or better a little more than walking distance. How could we get his probation reinstated?? And would it do any good if we paid off probation fee's and court cost in advance?
Assuming your boyfriend was represented by an attorney on his underlying charge, speaking to that attorney is a good...
Is it legal to sell a vehicle to someone whose DL is under suspension for DUI? The vehicle cannot be insured.
I financed a vehicle and had my full coverage insurance dropped because my co-signer, whose name was applied as co-owner, has a suspended DL for DUI. I had no idea that the co-signer's name would be applied in this way when I purchased the vehicle. Furthermore, had I known that the co-signer was not insurable, I would not have purchased the vehicle in the first place. Since I cannot insure this vehicle, the loan will go into default and the vehicle will be repossessed. I cannot re-finance the vehicle myself, so I cannot have the co-signer's name removed. Do I have any recourse other than biting the bullet on this one?
If you can sell the car for more than owe you are in the clear.

Is possible to be convicted of a DUI and be unaware of it?
Today I received a letter from the Dept of Homeland Security that my license had be revoked due to a DUI conviction in Feb of 2012 and that I could reapply for my license on April 17, 2013. I have never been arrested for a DUI or ticketed for the same. I have retained insurance, renewed my registration and license and obtained a professional healthcare license, and passed background checks for work in a ER past that date. I was just accepted to medical school starting in August and am afraid my status with them will be negatively affected by this. Can I be convicted with a DUI without ever being stopped for an alcohol related issue or ever receiving notification of said offense?
No. This sounds like a mistake. You should call the phone number listed on the letter you received and explain you...
Possible DUI but no indication of blood testing from medical records, case to be presented to grand jury
I had a vehicle accident with property damage. There was a beer can in the vehicle at the time of the accident and a loaded gun (I have a carry permit). I was flown to a trauma center. No records from the hospital show any BAC testing. I have not been arrested, and the officer who worked the accident is presenting this to a grand jury. My friends say that I was sober when I left their home just 20 minutes before the accident. I do have a history of passing out, but this has not ever been investigated medically. 1.) Is it typical for BAC blood testing to occur without it showing up on a patient's medical records? Also, 2.) If there is sufficient evidence of DUI, why hasn't the officer just arrested me instead of going to the grand jury?
The reason why there have been no charges is the state is gathering evidence, and presenting it to the grand jury. The...
