Was on prob. in richmond in. for dui. I left in. there is a warrant for me. How much jail time will I do if I turn myself in?
I am a florida resident and got the dui while in richmond. I served 16 days in jail there and received 6 months probation. I left richmond and returned home to florida. I don't want this hanging over me, if I return to richmond and turn myself in how much jail time will I do? also, after I do the time will I then be done with this dui charge and be able to return home to florida?
You best bet is to contact an attorney in the Richmond area, explain your situation and what you'd like to have happen,...
Can a person defend themselves against OWI charges if they don't have the resources (money) to do so?
I was charged and arrested for a first offense OWI in Indiana not too long ago. I hired a lawyer to help me with the case but he is telling me that without spending between $7,000 and $10,000 I would not be able to hire a toxicologist or have money required to cover the deposition and witness fees to obtain facts to defend my case. A plea bargain was presented that I don't think is fair: jail for 7 days or a three month class, one of which I cannot drive to and from, nor could I redeem my license until after the course is completed. I don't live in the place I was arrested, but an hour away thus making that class pretty much an invalid option. Since jail would be bad, are there no ways to defend oneself without having to be wealthy. I would just like to get the plea to be more reasonable
You should consult an attorney in your jurisdiction to see if you qualify for the appointment of a public defender.
I was charged with OWI a month ago. In the county I was arrested in, they have a blanket bargain agreement for these types of cases where you get 14 days in jail OR complete a 12 week intervention course - and on top of that the person STILL gets convicted. Considering my record, it's hard to believe I deserve such a harsh a punishment - It's my first offense mind you with no previous anything on my bill other than a speeding ticket. Anyways, what in the world can I do about these circumstances? 14 days in jail is obviously terrible and the 12 week class must be completed in THAT county! I live an hour away. Besides accepting this cruel punishment, what can an honest person do to defend against this level of absurdity? I hired a lawyer, but he seems uncreative about the options.

I was driving home a few days back when I was stopped for what the officer said was 'driving through a barricade'. He said there was a tree down across the road from a storm and asked me why I did that. I didn't see a barricade, it was night, and it was pouring rain. This is not a city street where you can take the next street over to go past either, this is a town road where the next detour is miles down the road. Anyways, The officer said he smelled alcohol and had me do the field tests, it's still pouring mind you. I don't want to go into many more details right here, but bottom line I was charged with an OWI, 2 charges actually.
Two charges because they can. You need a local DUI/DWI lawyer, now. You can lose your license before you even get to...
How do some people get a way with DUIs while in their car with the keys in ignition? While others don't.
For example this cop who is a DUI enforcer himself gets a way with a DUI. While a person like myself who isn't in the car, who has his keys in his pocket and is far away from the car gets his first DUI. Just not sure how the justice system is working here. Here's the story about the cop and his DUI: http://www.wkrn.com/story/24535856/franklin-dui-officer-avoids-arrest-after-being-found-passed-out-in-car-at-bar Prior to my arrest I had a perfect driving record (12 years of driving at the time). I don't expect any answers to this question. I'm just stating the truth that cops themselves can get away with crimes that normal people would be arrested for.
The quality of your lawyer helps. Some of us are at 100% success on these kinds of cases
I have a clean driving record for the last 16 years but prior to that its horrible DWI and suspensions 3 and 4 but when you pull up the driving record they are displayed twice for the same offenses it looks like I'm a driving criminal and I made 4 mistakes and I have been clean for over 16 years, how can I fix this please help I may need to change my Identity legally, I am having problems getting a job the driving record is hurting me and I does not reflect the last 16 years more like my first 10 years of driving, what can I do please help.
Is it driving record or criminal record that is causing the problem? Usually the drivers record contains information...
