Beating a DUI is it possible to sue the police department for forcing you into a ambulance when you stated you did want to go?
Police forced me to go to the hospital when I told them I didnt want to go after car accident.
If there is any possibility that you were injured, the police are obligated to make sure you are OK. It is not a...
Convicted of a DUI in 1978 and has gone through the counseling required. Counselor did not complete necessary papers correctly and husband has still not been granted a hearing. Plus no record of the arrest can be found in Springfield.
The best step your husband can take is to hire an attorney.
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...
Is there ever an exception to the rule of collateral attacking a previous DUI if you had a lawyer at the time?
Recently I received a 2nd DUI and want to try to collateral attack the 1st "guilty plea" DUI of 20yrs ago but was told since I had a lawyer at the time it was not an option. But due to the fact I showed up to court completely drunk, to where my lawyer advised me to not speak to the judge due to my intoxication, I am wondering if there can be a way to attack just the fact that I accepted a plea in such a state. Or is there anything I can do now 20yrs later to the lawyer still practicing for allowing me to do such a thing.
There is nothing you can do about your 20 year old DUI cnivuction.
This past Friday I was found guilty of my second dui. First one was 8 years ago and I got and cleared supervision. The SoS hasnt gotten the paperwork yet. Does it make any sense to hire an administrative lawyer to get the ball rolling and file for a hearing, or can nothing really be done until I get the revocation letter from the state? I've heard it can take anywhere from a short to long time to get it, so is it possible to get a jump on things?
Be completely prepared for your hearing. A continuance will not be granted if you do not have proper documentation.
my friend was convicted of a felony dui he did not have a license at the time so he was convicted of a felony we were wondering what processes he would need to take to get his license so he can get to work and pay off all his fines
You need to have a hearing with the Secretary of State. You will have to show that you have completed the treaty...
If my license is already revoked from other dui's , is it worth spending time/money trying to reinstate another dui supervision?
So a quick background of my situation... I've been arrested 3 times for dui. The first one(which is the one I'm asking the question about) received supervision and beat the summary suspension hearing, the second one was probation but did everything and has been closed, the 3rd one was found not guilty but didn't beat the summary suspension. So now, the first one the supervision has been ongoing mainly because of court and social services fees/fines. I did all the classes/treatment and swap, etc. I stopped going to court last year because lack of money and other things. They closed my case/forfeited my bond and now say I owe a certain amount ( which is less than the total court/ss fees I owed before). What will be the outcome if I just choose to pay the new fee? What would you suggest I do?
Pay all fees and look into the possibility of getting your license reinstated. For best results, you should hire an...
