How difficult is it to get a dui trial postponed for 6 months after initial court date?
The reason behind this question is two things...1) It will give me more time to come up with the finances. 2) I am on unsuprivised probation until April 2015. I would like to be off that before the trial.
The criminal justice system will not be bending to suit your needs. Sorry, but you do not get what you want for the...
In regard to my recent dui, should I hire an attorney that practices in the city/county or an out of county attorney?
I have heard different opinions in this matter. I know of an attorney that has a great reputation but works 120 miles away from the city in which I was arrested. I was also told that an attorney that works often with in the jurisdiction that I was arrested would generally bring better results.
It can help to know the local system and the players. However, an out of jurisdiction attorney can find out a lot of...
Can I go to DMV and get a license before they suspend it after DUI
Got DUI, cops took license but it won't be suspended for another 30 days. Can I go to dmv and get another one?
Not without breaking the law: When you go to the DMV, you have to sign a statement that you have not been arrested for...
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...
Can I be charged with DUI after the fact?
I had a single car accident after drinking a few beers. The cops came and took a report and towed my car. My wife then picked me up from the scene. The officer never asked if I had been drinking or if I was impaired. They did not perform any sobriety tests or make me blow. Is it possible I could be charged with DUI in the future if the officer did suspect I was under the influence?
Yes, you can be charged based upon the officer's perception that you were under the influence.
Can I sue Walgreens for selling me beer and then calling the police to say that I was intoxicated?
I purchased a six pack of beer along with a few other items. When I got to my car the police arrived because the cashier called to say that I was intoxicated. I ended up getting a DUI sitting in my car in the parking lot resulting in the end of my career. If Walgreens suspected that I was intoxicated why did they sell me beer which I understand is against their policy?
You could talk to a personal injury attorney, but I am not seeing a great lawsuit here. There is certainly no...
I was arrested but *not* convicted (yet) for a DUI. Is there anywhere I would be able to rent a car?
I'm going on a business trip in a week and a half and I am expected to rent a car when I get there. However, I was arrested a few months back for a DUI. I have not been convicted (yet and hopefully never), but I'm sure this got on my driving record. Is there anywhere that I can rent a car? Do any of the companies not run a DMV report? I don't want to get to the counter and have my application rejected in front of co-workers. My company doesn't know of my situation and I need to keep it that way.
Car rental companies do not generally run DMV reports or investigate driving records. They check for a valid driver's...
