How can I sway the State's Attorney to agree to vacate my DUI charge?
I've recieved a DUI last year and have been placed on supervision for 24 months. Due to my dilligence of completion of everything required of me, my lawyer was able to get an early termination of my supervision. My issue is that I have a CDL and because of a DUI charge, it has been disqualified. I motioned up the case in hopes of getting this charge amended. I know this is a very difficult thing to do, but I need my CDL for my job. Would it be a good idea to have my mother to also speak on my behalf?
I understand the hardships you face regarding your CDL. You are not alone. I have seen many people facing similar...
DUI IN TAXES, Illinois resident
I am an IL resident. I had a DUI in IL almost 3 years ago which I was not convicted with. I got supervision. Almost a year ago I was pulled over in TX for driving under the influence. My BAC level was 0.15. The charges are still pending. I was wondering if I can bring that case to IL the state of my residence and have an IL lawyer to represent me instead of going back and forth to TX. Also, I had to install an ignition interlock device in Denton County, TX as a requirement of bond. Will my DUI from IL that got reduced to supervision be treated as a first DUI in TX and then a DUI from Taxes considered as a 2nd DUI. I have an attorney in TX but don't rely on him. Is there any way to bring that case to the state of IL? Or is it better to be held in TX?
In a word, no. Two different sovereigns and two different laws. Get chummy with your Texas lawyer.
DUI Supervision requirements
Under supervision till December 2015. One of the requirements is "no other traffic or criminal violations, no similar offenses" I have not received a ticket or been pulled over since the supervision began. My attorney told me not to worry if were to get a speeding ticket going 5 mph - 10 mph over. Attorney also got my summary supervision rescinded at court date. Said he had a good relationship with prosecutor. That being said, any traffic violation could cause the supervision in jeopardy if the state wanted to re-sentence me?
It sounds like your attorney did a good job for you. Technically any traffic ticket would be a violation of your...
How will IL DUI effect FL license?
I have a lawyer in IL who is unclear on how a sentence of court supervision will be handled in FL. Also when does the SOS report the statutory summary suspension to the FL DMV? I was arrested on 4/21 and as of to-date, my license is still valid.
Your lawyer in IL is as unclear as any of us would be about FL law. You need to speak with a lawyer in FL, preferably...
