I am a Parole Officer and a Gulf War veteran and involved in my community, via my church. I am a 47 year old with only a seat belt violation and one speeding ticket. I do not wish to take the AEP program, I feel I simple used poor judgment. I have seen my parolees have their sentence reduced. I am hoping and praying the same. What advice can you give.
It would be unwise not to take advantage of the AE Program unless you have a rock solid defense to the arrest. Speak to...
I was arrested for DUI in Feb 2008, and lost my CDL license for life. Is there some way I can pursue getting it back?
I never was arrested while driving a truck or being on the job. I did lose my Motor Veh license but got that back. Driving was livelihood and although I have taken another job in a warehouse part time but driiving is really all I know. The company I worked for prior to the DUI has me on call to work in their warehouse but that is only happening about 6 wks per year. They said if there is someway I could get my CDL back, they would without hesitation take me back.
You should retain a lawyer and see if there are avenues of relief to which you are entitled ether at the DMV or through...
I was arrested once 3 years ago for possession of marijuana before it was decriminalized and was required to take the Drug Education Program. I just got a DUI for marijuana. Is it possible that the case will not stay on my permanent record? Is my only hope that of proving I was not intoxicated? If I do not qualify for AEP again, is jail time and driver license suspension for a year certain?
Your prior use of the Drug Education Program will not impact your eligibility for the Alcohol Education Program. Also,...

I have been sober for over 20 yrs now and would like to obtain a pistol permit. will my duis from over twenty years ago prevent this?
The Connecticut permit to carry a pistol is a "privilege" not a right. Therefore, the state police can deny a permit...
Is this matter worth spending the money on a lawyer? As a rough percentage, what are the chances my license won't be suspended?
I'll make this quick and avoid the rhetoric: I was pulled over for running a stop sign. Smell of marijuana was present. Backup was called, so the patrolman must have called the DRE. Failed the field sobriety test. My argument was that it was 20 degrees outside and I was freezing cold and very nervous. They brought me into the station and gave me a urine test. They also found a small amount of marijuana on me. I was indeed high earlier that night. Also I never admitted to being intoxicated. I did some research and the chemical tests are largely inconclusive as the metabolites stay in your system for weeks for moderate users such as myself. My family and I do not have a lot of money. If I hire an attorney, can we say that I most likely will not have my license suspended?
I view an attorney as a necessity in DUI cases. No one can ever provide you with percentages and if they do it is...
I was in a car accident last month...went to the hospital and learned have blood alcohol of .11. Have MS and doctors confirmed it was a contributing factor to the accident. Medically, I was advised not to drive until proper foot brace was obtained. Never had an offense before (except 1 speeding ticket). Not charged yet, but police want medical records. I requested them and if I don't turn them over, police will ask for a warrant. What advice do you have?
Hire an attorney! ASAP
