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...
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...

I was the DD after party Saturday night. On the way home, i had hit a pothole and believed i had a flat. Upon further inspection, we realized that the problem was more mechanical so I put a request in to my insurance for a tow. After sending the tow request, i realized my phone battery was low so my husband and I walked across the street to the drugstore to buy a charger, leaving my husbands friend and the security guard who witnessed the breakdown. When my husband and I returned the car was gone. The security guard told us the friend took off in the vehicle with only 3 tires. We found out police pursued him until he crashed into a curb, parked van, and pole. We went to the station to report the incident but the officer refused to make a report. He wasn't even charged with a DUI
I am trying to imagine, 'the friend took off in the vehicle with only 3 tires." I would have liked to see that!...
I moved from IL to NY and got a DWaI here. I paid all the fines, went to court, etc and it all ended here so I went to the DMV to get my license after the NY suspension period and IL had put a hold on my license. My question is what are my options? My license was expired and I paid the fine for driving without a valid license. Doesn't that mean I was driving without a license? How does IL have the right to punish me for something I did in another state without a license (the only connection to IL)? Should I get an OOS hearing packet and do that whole thing as it said on the Sec of State's website? Or is my only option trying to get it down to reckless driving? I don't want to go back to court so this is not really an option for me. Also can someone tell me if Im actually charged in IL now?
Have you paid the reinstatement fee or whatever is required in NY? You will not be able to get an IL DL unless and...
In a DWI/DUI arrest case does police need consent of driver to have a Blood alcohol level drawn ? And if police does not use implied consent law to draw blood for BAC especially when intoxication and an accident may have been suspected, is that deviation from standard protocol.
Consent or a warrant. are needed for a DUI, but it doesn't mean they won't charge you.
I was convicted with a DWaI in NY where I live. But my problem here is that my license has been revoked (as in IL has put a national hold on DMV registry) even after all of the court, state and DMV reinstatement fee and finishing out my NY suspension. IL did not give me a summary suspension of 6-months like would be for the average first-time IL license holder. Mine was revoked. First, let me see if I understand: - NY's DWaI (BAC below .08) = IL DUI - Expired IL license = still an IL license (last valid state lic) - First time DUI offense -> summary suspension of 6 months - CONVICTION of DUI w/o lic in IL = aggravated DUI = revoked. I was convicted in NY and driving w/o license was dropped. I was CONVICTED of DUI. IL cant revoke based on what my conviction WOULD've been had I been in IL?
Were you driving on a IL license when you got your DUI in NY? If so, your problems your facing are because you were...
