My commander is giving me a gomar for a dui that happened three years ago and two duty stations ago, what can i do to prevent it
3 years ago i ended up making a bad decision and got a DUI. I was on PCS leave from Germany enroute to fort campbell, ky. I am now at my third duty station here in Fort lewis, wa. I got a letter from the state of wisconsin saying that they are going to suspend my drivers license if i do not complete a drinking education class Ex. (ASAP) so I self enrolled myself in a one day class with ASAP. I had to have my commander sign off on it. I did not tell him why i did due to privacy. my counselor called him stating why i was in the class. After he found out i had a dui enroute to ft campbell and they did not punish me in any way under the UCMJ he is trying to give me a GOMAR now. Can he do that? what can i do about it? any advice i can have i would love to have it. I planned on making this
I suggest you reach out to JAG and consult with them.
3 yrs ago a dui on scene of 0.9 dropped to negligence...(w/o a lawyer) now today on scene0.7 m 6'6' 170lbs why did he get dui?
At 2a. He left bar (4 shots) to rescue his friend who's was at a party, friends phone died, he was looking for him on side of road. (Slow down & speeding up while looking probably) he must have looked suspicious then he took off when he saw a cop thinking he'd get a dui cop sees him short chase, guy blows tire out or wrecks truck so he gets a dui blown on scene at time 0.7...but charged with dui legal limit 0.8. What is the malicious mischief charge for? do they give anyone who alludes cop & wrecks car who had even 1 beer a dui? What are the chances of this being less than $5000- he just paid 6k on all his old debts tickets Charged w felony 1 alluding police, dui & malicious mischief. He was gone from 2:30a h called me from jail at 5am
First, jail phone calls are typically recorded. It's really not smart for your friend to make any statements about the...
Second DUI 5-2013. Missed court date (inpatient treatment facility). Warrant issued. Are there attny on a budget payment plan?
First DUI was 1993. Didn't take care of it until 2011. Warrant issued after I missed June 2013 date, would lose job if they kept me in jail. Didn't know how to handle
Plenty of attorneys have payment plans. In addition, if you have no money you can go to court and have a public...
On deferral program for DUI that is approx 1 year out from completion; just cited for theft 3. Will deferral be revoked?
I have had no other incidences of non-law abiding behavior over the last 4 years and just got caught up with a case of "baby brain" while shopping. Yes. There was unpaid merchandise in a cart, with my purse, in the interior breezeway of Walmart. However, I was walking outside to try to get some air and WiFi to look up which decongestants are safe to take during pregnancy, sans cart. As I was putting my jacket on a loss prevention officer put his hand on my arm and asked me to follow him. His partner retrieved the cart. Regardless of my intent and the fact that I was not touching the cart to move it off property, it looked horrible. I must go to court and take responsibility for my actions at 36 weeks pregnant. How will my deferment be effected? What should I do to prevent jail time etc.?
Yes, it is entirely possible that your participation in a pretrial diversion program will be cancelled. How will your...
If I received a dui in one state and didn't take care of it can I do so in the state I currently live in?
I received a DUI in Washington state last year and did not take care of it. I currently live in Oklahoma and would like to resolve this. I'm sure there is a bench warrant for my arrest in Washington.
You will have to return to Washington State to resolve the case. I strongly suggest you hire an experienced DUI...
It is my understanding that the arresting officer, who was also the one to administer the breathalyser, was supposed to observe me for a constant 15 minutes before the test. This officer might have observed me for 5 min maximum. He asked me a few questions while filling out paperwork, like address etc. He was constantly leaving the room, talking with another officer, left and then came back and uncuffed me and took me to the breathalyser room. On the results report it said he observed me from 22:35 - 22:56. I know for a fact this is not true. How can I obtain the video of this supposed observation, and if he is caught falsifying a report would that be grounds to get this charge removed?
You are going to need an experienced DUI attorney to help you with this. Discuss the case only with your attorney, and,...
I have been pulled over twice for driving under the influence in two different occasions. They are fairly far apart, about 7-8 years and about 1-2 years since the last one occured. First dui was dropped to negligence in the 1st or 2nd degree. Second dui was dropped to wreckless driving. My question is, if i were to apply at a car dealership and on the application it asks if i have been convicted of anything can I put down no? I understand that if it asks whether i have infractions or convictions invovling automobiles that i will have to write my negligence and wreckless down which I'm assuming will show on my background check and also, that they were both dropped from original dui charges. If there is an explanation area, should I even jot any of those down and explain? These were never too clear to me. I know that this last question is not your area of expertise. Mainly, it will be opinions but i know there is a chance that it could be a fact depending on if you are answering from experience. Whatever reason it may be please try to add a realistic input so that i may know my chances. Is there any chance that a big corporate dealership or a franchise car dealership of hiring me when i have two infractions invovling automobiles that were orginally suppose to be dui's? Ive always just assumed that those two dont mix but a friend thought i should seek professional advice because i could be mistaken since i never thoroughly checked. I know a lot about cars and is a well experienced salesman so selling cars, if possible could be very good for me. I also ask because i have recently helped my father puchase a car and it hit me that i've never really noticed a salesman drive the cars so it occured to me that there could be a possibility of me becoming one. Please, enlightened me. Thank you for your time and advice.
If the application asks if you've ever been convicted of a crime, then you have to say yes. Reckless Driving is a...
