I had my license suspended in the state of Ohio for a dui conviction. My license is suspended/restricted privileges until the middle of September. I currently am allowed to drive to work and school however due to priviledges. I accepted a job offer in Tennessee and am moving there next week. Is it possible for me to have the same driving privileges (work) there as I do in Ohio? I know that I will not be able to get my license, but I would like to have the mentioned priviledges so I would be able to go to work. Thank you for any answers.
I find that most Courts in Ohio list the place and hours of employment on the order permitting driving privileges. If...
After work one night my two friends went over to another friends house and played some video games. They were smoking marijuana ( I did not partake in those festivities because I am on diversion). After a while they get hungry and leave to go get food, so my two friends and I leave. Shortly after leaving my friend got pulled ove. The cop said he smelt marijuana in the car and continued to ask us if we smoked or if we had some in the car. I said no to both questions (unknowingly he did) but he took the blame for that. When I first rolled down my window the cop said my breath smelt like alcohol. Then proceeded to ask me to take a breathalyzer, I declined. He then charged me with underage consumption. He did not perform field sobriety tests either. I was not drinking. What should I do ?
Yes you should retain an attorney. It sounds like you may have a defense although refusing the breath test will need...
Pulled over for OVI in Delaware County. Another driver had called in about my driving. I was driving slowly and braking often trying to read road signs at night as I was lost. Officer stopped me as I pulled into a parking lot but did not witness any impaired driving. I did not blow. Officer arrested me and I spent the night in jail. I have been offered a plea deal of reckless op (4 pts), defensive driving course (-2pts), 3 day treatment, 6 month suspension w/ privileges. Is this a good deal? Is there a lesser charge to plea? Can I counter? Should I go to trial? Prosecutor has already stated that he didn't want this to go to trial due to lack of case.
These questions should be addressed to your attonrey that is familiar with all the details of the case. You can't get...
it was a second DUI offense, last one was 3 months away from being 6 years ago and it was also the morning after while I was driving home from a party. The prosecutor sentenced me to 10 days jail and 1 year license suspension. On the day of the sentencing the judge didn't go with that, instead changed it to 2 years license suspension. I just wanted to know if it was too late to fight that since the judge sentenced me or if theres a way to get it back down to 1 year.
You can file a motion to modify a sentence. The court has the power to alter any sentence it imposes. However, such...
