I was told that my first DUI would be taken off my record after I completed the alcohol program. Am I still considered a first time offender in CT if I got a DUI in RI recently? Do i face jail time with an out of state DUI?
I know Rhode Island is not as strict as Connecticut, contact a RI attorney, you may qualify for a program in Rhode...
I something to explain....but I am an interested party , and afraid that nobody will listen. Because the wife was to call police, she is the victim. She wanted to scare him and teach a lesson. Regrets about it now. He is the one working and supporting, and she is the one drinking, verbally abusing. It is hard to proof anything. In the meantime my son was ruled to go to anger management class and alcohol abuse class. He hardly has time to even have a beer, he works until late every night. He may never go back, because cannot trust her anymore. He needs to get this collar off his leg first. I worry about custody too, any way he can win a custody of his child after all of this wrong judgements? Any way I can help him?
The way you can help him is to get him away from that lady, and obtain an attorney for him that can fight for his...
I am a US Citizen and my husband came here on a H2B Visa. We are sending in all the paperwork soon to apply for his Adjustment of Status. He got a DUI in 2011 in the US. He went to court and paid all his fines, did community service, and it was ruled as a misdemeanor. We still have all the legal documents proving he paid his fines etc. But will this make them deny his adjustment out status??
It might. Talk to an immigration attorney

I don't practice in CT, but generally speaking the reason they put you on probation is because if you screw up while...
I was driving and in an accident on Saturday night. I was conscious after the accident but taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure afterwards. At the hospital the doctor came in and took blood prior to the police arrival. I was told the sample was to make sure I was ok - the accident was on the severe side. Do the police have access to that blood sample for testing? When the police did show up they never mentioned the sample or anything along those lines of testing.
Yes, they have the right to that sample
There is no smell of alcohol, nor any illegal contraband in plain view. The driver is simply exercising their right to not answer questions and would like to be left alone and travel without government seizure of movement.
Is this a hypothetical question or did this really happen? If it's a hypothetical, I would recommend rather that the...
no prior DUIs so this is a first, but on probation through the state supervision unit, no longer through local level. Will they violate and if so, is there a way to avoid jail?
You should set up a free consultation with a qualified DUI Defense attorney to discuss your case.
