I missed my court date in fort payne alabama for a dui. I had a court appointed attorney which i did not make use of.
Would hiring an attorney help me resolve my case. Or will I more than likely have to serve jail time for missing the sentence.
If you missed court then a warrant was likely issued for your arrest. This does not mean you will serve jail time on...

Victim of an Overzealous Officer but DUI Reduced: What will typically show on a background inquiry by a potential employer?
Hi, I live in Alabama, and last year I was cited for speeding 95 (70) and DUI in Georgia. My case ended with a plea of nolo conten. to reckless with 1y none reporting probation, fine, and an alcho. evaluation. Is this typical? The prosecutor requested to go on record stating the State did not see sufficient evidence to prove intoxication or overly reckless driving behavior after the fact of course, as by video I passed non-standard FSTs (excluding breath) and no state BAC tests were conducted. This made me think I was sorta pigeonholed to plea. I am having trouble finding work and wonder if the reduced charge/ probation may be the culprit. I have an offer on the table to work at a local state college but its pending a BG check. Will my circumstance disqualify me for this opportunity?
Every job sets its own requirements. I do not think we can answer this question without knowing what the qualifications are.
Arrested for DUI 2 years ago. The Judge gave administrative prosecution I think it was called. Paid fines and school, etc. He told me that after one year with no more trouble the case would be nolle prossed. I came back to city hall one year later and was given a statement which stated: Status: Case Closed- NOL PROS which was dated on year from the court date. I went to the Dept of Public Safety in Montgomery to get if removed (the suspension) from my record. I had read SECT 32-5A304 (c) second sentence. My understanding was if a case is nolle prossed , dismissed or acquitted the administrative suspension should be removed from my driving record. The State trooper in that office told me that I could not get it removed. Were they right? If not , what can I do.
Code of Alabama, 1975, section 32-5A-304(c) requires the Department of Public Safety to remove any entry made in...
I recently moved from Alabama to Georgia but haven't gotten my Georgia driver's license. I was arrested for DUI in Georgia with my Alabama license. I plead guilty to the DUI charge and my Alabama license was taken, as Georgia has a minimum revocation of 120 days. I want to apply for a "hardship license", or limited driving privileges, in Georgia. DDS says that they can grant me one as long as my Alabama privileges are not suspended as well. Upon getting this information, neither Georgia nor Alabama had record of my conviction, so I'm just trying to make preparations. Would my driving privileges in Alabama be suspended as well? Will there be additional fines in the state of Alabama? If so, do I find that out from Alabama DMV or another source?

My son is 18 and was arrested for DUI . He has NEVER been in any trouble before this, can he plead youthful offender?
My car was wrecked, however there was no other vehicle or person involved. His BAC was .11. He has a planned military career and is fearful this one stupid mistake has ruined him for life. I was told he may be able to plead youthful offender and get a reduced fine and probation. He works a part-time job and of course now is relying on others to get him to work. I can not afford his fines or fees so he is going to have to continue to work. This occured only 48 hours ago and we have 6 weeks until court date, what should be his next move? Any help is greatly appreciated.
He needs to get the public defender and follow that attorney's advice.
I just got 2 Ciations while driving at 2am in the morning, from a fittness center, I believe I was racial profiled.
I just got 2 UTC Electronic Ciations for driving at night first citation was "FAILURE /REFUSAL TO DISPLAY INSURANCE" and the second "IMPROPER LANE USAGE", I'll explain the situation I was looking for a 24hr resturant or McDonald's after trainingI a vehicle followed behind me I didnt worry much about it. As I was driving I was slowing down (35 in a 40 MHP) zone looking for a resturant. Then I began to drink my protein bottle and began drinking it, then the vehicle behind me flashed their lights. I pulled over, and then I waited for the office to step out of the vehicle I then displayed the protein bottle out of the driver's window. I was asked for Licience and Insurance, I did not have my insurnace with me. I was told I could appeal before the Judge and deal with it. Help???
These are the types of cases that an attorney may help individuals defend themselves against. A key aspect of the...
