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...
I was charged with a DUI last night.
I was involved in an accident. It was the other person's fault. But I did received a ticket for "not slowing down to avoid accident" Which makes no sense. I do not think the test results matter because I drank liquor at the Scene AFTER the crash. I just waited in the car actually and drank wine port.The police did arrive and it said on the ticket that they noted I had wine in my hands when they arrived. I have a jeep and the damage didn't really look to bad, (her car looked totaled) . I didn't know how to handle the situation. I was also drinking before I got into the jeep. But I believe it was the wine I drank at the scene that put me over the limit.
Report this to your auto carrier and hire a criminal attorney. Do not post more admissions online.
