Was coming back after meeting a friend over drinks and some lady side swiped me on the highway damaging my vehicle. When police officer came he smelled alcohol on me and booked me for a DUI. She did get at-fault for the accident but i ended up getting a DUI. what would be my best defense here?
You need an attorney to defend the charge. I doubt the State will drop it to a reckless or negligent driving charge....
Since I will have over 12 current points on my license, will the MVA suspend my license? I was going through a small town and did not slow down fast enough and received a ticket for a 59 in a 30. It is only my second speeding ticket in 18 years. Should I just pay the ticket? The court is 2 hours from where I live and I would rather pay the ticket. Will the state of Maryland suspend my license? I suppose if I go to court, I will be close to 2 full years away from the DUI. I received my work restricted license in August 2012, and my full license was reinstated in November 2012.
Don't just pay the ticket. Get a lawyer in the area where you got the ticket and go to court for this. Hopefully he...
I need to place (or at least make a good faith effort to place) an alcohol restriction on a license that is currently suspended (long story). Is that even possible? Don't want to waste a day at MVA only to find out that it's not possible.
Yes, if you have an Order from a Judge, the MVA should still be able to place an alcohol restriction on your license...

My neighbor has had multiple DUI's and I know him to be on alcohol restriction for the probation he is on right now. I have seen him drinking on the side of his house and am not sure if his wife knows. They have kids and he is a real loser in my opinion. I worry about him driving drunk in our neighborhood since there are so many kids around. What would his consequences be if I called in an anonymous tip on him drinking and his probation office found alcohol in his system?
There are two kinds of alcohol restrictions. One is where the MVA places a restriction on the license. He would not...
I lived in washington state and in 2007 i recieved a DUI. After that i had to go back to the east coast. Since then i have tried to work with kitsap county and they always say they will work with me. However they never send me the information or return my phone calls. I believe they wish for me to come out there so they can throw me in jail. With there reluctense i have had many issues providing for my family and many issues with getting to and from work.
You need to repost your question and list the location as the State of Washington. You also can use the "Find a Lawyer"...
My husband’s ex wife was recently convicted of her 2nd DUI in 5 years. For years we have constantly been hearing from my step-daughter that she is "out running errands with grandma" or "working late" (8PM or later sometimes) multiple days a week. It just clicked for my husband and I that this is perhaps due to her being out drinking, while leaving my step-daughter at her grandparents house. The ex has always been emotionally unstable, but I guess we always assumed it was an attitude problem, since we knew of no major drinking problem (she didn't drink much during the marriage). With his daughter being left without a parent so often, my husband is considering filing for custody based on the change in circumstances.
Generally, Maryland law allows for a modification of a child custody order if the moving party can show there has been...
