If your question is about getting your license back, you should be able to get WA license if you are eligible to do so...
Question is: I cant get Florida to release my License unless I am Licensed in there State with a interlock and Counseling.There law States that I have to have the Interlock but I do not live there anymore.I have read into the Law and see It's Interlock -or Counseling not both.So it's up to the descresition of the officer.Not what the Dept of Motor Vehicle's Statutes actually are.Washington will not except anything unless Florida releases my Florida License.The law at the time of my conviction stated interlock installed for 6 months.Now Florida wants Five year interlock and five years of counseling.Best to my Knowledge I only have the 6 moth requirement that I belive I can handle....Thanks Danny daniel_mckenzie33@yahoo.com
You are correct that Washington won't allow you to be licensed until Florida says that you are clear. For Florida...
My negligent 1st degree driving sentence allows for alcohol consumption but not driving with a BAC > 0.000. I naively thought I should use the device to see when it was safe to drive, causing BAC's x 3 > 0.000 without attempting to start the car (both the BACs and not starting the car recorded by the interlock provider). Will this count as a violation, even though I did not try to start the car?
Whether you committed a probation violation depends on the exact terms of your probation. Without seeing the court...
I was in Oregon at the time of the DUI and I have lived in Wa state the whole time and still do 17 years later. I took care of it: assessment, victims panel, treatment and gave the courts a certificate of completion. Fast forward 17 years later, I went to renew my license last week here in Washington state, like I have since then, and they told me that my license is suspended from Oregon! This was a surprise to me!!! Now the DMV in oregon is asking me to produce the certificate again (which I did not keep after all of these years) in order to get my license back! No records exist from that far back at the place I completed it at. So now, they say I have to do the treatment all over again! Even though I don't even drink. I was a kid back then!!! Do I need a lawyer?????
At a minimum, you should consult with an Oregon DUI defense attorney. They may know some secrets about how things were...
I was charged with a DUI. Took breath test and blood test. Blood came back with nothing bc the cop forgot to ask for which drug he wanted tested. Blew Breath test,came out 0.00. Cops states I was on drugs. Took alcohol/drug Assessment, no treatment and passed UA. Prosecutor still wants to charge with DUI and court appointed says I could get possibly driving reckless driving. Cop also lied and stated he gave me a ticket for not having insurance,never did. Have insurance and pay 6 months ahead each time. Witness are the ones that called in saying I was driving poorly and driving on the wrong side of the road,not true and back out of a driving and did a U turn. Can't do it,you either go right or left you can't do a u turn backing out of anywhere. I want to go to trial. what should I do? Thxs
Sounds like a very defensible case. Don't know how they prove a case with no alcohol nor tox results.
I was appointed a probation officer during my arraignment. I have been back to court 4 times,go back Dec 4th. During my last court date I was told by the officer that checks you in that I was suppose to see my probation officer. I was in her office I asked if I changed the Venue for my trial if I had to see her . She said really snotty and mean "Do you know what a Venue is".I told of course I do. She asked me if I had done my assessment for drugs and alcohol. told her yes and I do not need treatment and UA came out negative. She was pissed and said you have an addiction and you do not need treatment? You have had 3 DUI's and you don't have to go to treatment? Again saying very snotty had these 2, DUI's 18 and 20 years ago. addicted to what? Who do I tell this too?Obviously not for me!
You need to speak to a DUI attorney about this. I would need more facts to determine if you have a case. Blowing .000...
We were off the road parked with the intention of calling LYFT (cab) when cop pulled up behind us ( no good reason). Wisconsin is not a "reporting" state. Should I fly out? Can an attorney appear for me? From what I understand Washington State has an off road defense - if you pull off with the intention of not driving further when intoxicated that can negate a DUI. I believe that we have a valid "off road" defense". This is first offense.
I can't imagine that getting a warrant from any State is a good thing. I am sure it will cause you problems,...
