License suspension because of DUI/DWAI
I am waiting for my DMV hearing (submitted the request in writing, not in person). I have not received my temporary permit yet. I am assuming my license will be suspended at the hearing for 1 month (1st offense DUI (.09). Can my lawyer apply the time I have been without a license (waiting for the hearing, and not yet received my temporary permit) to the time when it will be in all likelihood taken away? For example, after my 7 day period, I have been without a license for about a week. If it takes another week to get my temporary permit., can these 2 weeks without the license be applied to the suspended period, so that after the hearing, it would be 2 weeks without (2 weeks prior + 2 weeks after) hearing? Kind of like time served?
I agree with the way you have analyzed the time period and it definitely sounds correct to me but you need to contact a...

Colorado DUI failure to appear warrant
About 2 years ago in Colorado at a routine traffic stop I was charged with a DUI and let go. I returned to washington because the police officer told me I could do my hearing over the phone. A couple days before my court date I called the court to find out how to do this hearing. I was informed this was incorrect and I needed to be in colorado in 2 days. So I spent all my money on a bus ticket to colorado for my pre trail hearing (not sure what its called) and excepted a plea deal that involved probation and a reduced charge. I was unable to complete this due to lack of funds. I was homeless with no job. I now have an FTA warrant and just want to know if a lawyer might be able to help with the situation, and what kind of jail time I'm looking at. I blew a .081 if that helps.
Yes a warrant is likely active. Depending upon the jurisdiction and judge, a lawyer can sometimes quash the warrant...

Is there a chance this will count as a second DUI?
5 years ago, my fiancé was arrested twice in a week for DUI. The second was deferred and closed as it was right at the legal limit and the first was a standard conviction. He was charged with another DUI after being pulled over for a broken tail light. Will this be treated as his second or third DUI? Is there any possibility for leniency as his govt job rests on it? As well as the closure of our pending home purchase etc. I've seen the man drink less than a handful of times and can't imagine how derailed our lives could get over such stupidity.
He needs to hire a local lawyer that is familiar with DUi laws. This is a tricky situation where the DA can handle...
Thank you to everyone that's taken the time to answer all my questions. I have one more referring to Colorado and DWAI.
I'm about to complete my deferred. Being a Colorado Medical Marijuana Card Holder, I imagine I would test over the 5 nanogram limit no matter what time of the day it is. I carry the smell with me I'm sure where ever I go, impaired or not. So next time I'm pulled over by Johnny Dogooder, is my best bet to refuse a road side and all that jazz and take my chances with the DMV. I am an upstanding tax paying older white male, with a good career. The DMV would have to hear me out, correct? What should I do on the side of the road? Demand my lawyer? What should I tell the officer?
I am not licensed in CO, but yes, the DMV would have to hear you out. However, it may be incredibly frustrating and...
Is it possible to complete alcohol classes on unsupervised Probation
I was sentenced on a Dwai on 12/8/14, had an Alcohol evaluation on 1/7/15. I was told I had to do Track B therapy and started 10 days later. The Judge gave me One year of probation with Six months supervised. I have completed all other terms of my probation. Last week my RMOMS probation officer said I must be supervised until completion of classes. Probation terms June 8, my classes continue until mid October. I don't intend on voluntarily signing an extension. Is it required that I be supervised or just a ploy for continued payments? I have no previous criminal record or dirty UA's. P.S. The judge knew I would most likely have Track B and still gave me six months supervision. What are my options
Your first and best option is to hire an attorney to work through this with you.
