West Virginia DUI Question
5 years ago I was charged with DUI in WV. The charges were reduced to reckless driving. I got a letter from the WV DMV saying I had to take classes. When I called they said since I was a PA resident that I would have to call PA DMV to see what they wanted me to do. When I called PA they said they had no record of it so as far as they were concerned I didnt have to take any classes. I just moved to Ohio and tried to get a new licence but was flagged by WV. Will I have to take the classes and if so will I be able to take them somewhere in Ohio?
Every State has conditions on obtaining a license. Driving is considered a "privilege," not a "right" and as a result,...
If I was given an underage consmption ticket, and the BAC was impossibly high, >.5, could I get off of the ticket on that fact?
So I recently recieved a ticket for underage consumption. The ticket is for a whopping $550. When I was breathalyzed I blew a .5 and on the ticket he put .5. Obviously this is impossible. If I blew a .5 I wouldn't have to worry about the fine because I would be dead. I was given a court date this thursday. Could I get this dismissed simply on the fact that the breathalyzer was obviously malfunctioning? Any other advice?
First, a BAC of .5 isn't impossible. I've seen them over .7. Second, if cross-examined, the officer will almost...

Can the charges be refiled if the case was dismissed for a misdemeanor DUI?
I was charged with a DUI on May 2014. Blood test came back .05 and the officer made a lot of mistakes in the report. The prosecutor filed a motion to dismiss and it was signed by the judge on March 2015. I received a phone call from a Sgt which told me that I was summoned and they would refile the charges. He said that I didn't follow the plea deal. A plea was never made or agreed, in fact I was very adamant about not making a deal.
Depends if it was dismissed without prejudice or not. Impossible to tell over the internet. If you would have taken...

Arrested for DUI 2012 and dropped and dismissed to a PI. 3 years later 2015 I receive a revocation letter from DMV. Can they do this? Is there not a statute of limitations? The officer didn't send in a report until 12/2014

Lost my license in 1996 due to a DUI manslaughter. Wanting to know how I can get it back.
Lost my License indefinitely due to DUI manslaughter. This all happened in Florida in January 1996. I have been out of prison after a little more than 9 years served. I contacted Florida DMV but was given no real answer how to get it back. I was told I was eligible to get it back. I just don't know what to do. I now live in West Virginia. Have been working since my release, even a dispatcher for the police department. Have been in no trouble since either. Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
