DUI driving law in CA uses a 10 year limit on drunk driving charges. How does MO get away with using old CA priors to prosecute?
Seems to me, Missouri and other states that use your accumulated DUI's from other states (that have limits) should not be allowed to use this information beyond that states limit. I don't have a federal drivers license, I have a state driver's license. Don't we all? Can any lawyer help out on this and explain to me how Missouri gets away with this and is there any defense to use in throwing out these "Old Priors" ? On a slight tangent, what should my lawyer look for to throw out old CA priors in general? Please don't tell me to get a lawyer. I have one.
The key to an answer is found in the last two sentences of your post. You have counsel who should be your sole source...
What happens to a 2 year conditional permanent resident that has gotten a DWI and DUI in less than 3 years apart?
In 2010 my husband got a DWI in Missouri. He spent 2 years in jail because he is hispanic and was out of "status". He entered the US legally but overstayed. To make a long story short we won our case with immigration April 2012. The judge granted him a 2 year conditional permanent resident card (since we weren't married at the time for very long). Now my husband tells me he just got a DUI in Arkansas yesterday (he wasnt driving but the key was in the ignition and it is dry county in Jonesboro Arkansas) What does this do to him when he goes before immigration in April 2013 to apply for citizenship or a 10yr permanent resident card?
He should be OK ... talk to the lawyer that helped your 'win' the case with the Immigration Judge for confirmation.
I looked up someone's case on Case Net for a DWI. Their attorney got them to plead guilty and they got a suspended sentence and I guess probabtion for 2 years. Where it stated the fines it said "$200.00 LERF" what does that mean?
That means he had to pay $200 to the law enforcement restitution fund.
I was arrested on 3 counts of reckless endangerment before deploying to Afghanistan last year. I hired a lawyer and he had the trial postponed until I return. I redeployed to the states in march and ets'd in July. I never received anything from my lawyer or the court but I now have a warrant for my arrest in the state of TN. The charges are from a drunken fight in a cab in which I struck the cab driver causing him to swerve into a ditch. No reported damage to the cab
If you are not still in contact with the first attorney, you need to either get in touch with him or hire another...
It was a first offense and the driver was pulled over immediately after leaving a gas station that the officer was at. The officer never told the driver why he was pulled over and asked the driver to get out of the car as soon as the officer got to the window. Can a DWI be reduced to an offense that will not affect insurance rates or even be reduced at all?
Not enough information to be able to answer your question. But hiring the best lawyer is always going to result in a...
Cop pulled over and found out, as a result, his license was suspended, and he could not drive unless he paid like $5000 to reinstate his license. My family try to help because he is out of work unless he gets his license back. He relies on my mother-in-law who can't even help herself when she is also in medical needs. Can any attorney help him to get his license back, and reduce the fees to get the license back?
The only way it would cost $5,000, in Missouri, to get a driver's license back is if it was suspended for failure to...
DWI Nov. 2 in Kcmo Missed the hearing for me license. Didnt soak up the information and missed my hearing so, I have a suspended license and cant go to work.
I'm a little confused by the information you've provided. It sounds like you waited more than 15 days to challenge the...
