In 2003, I plead guilty to a DWI in VA. My sentence was a restricted license for 1 year, a 20 week ASAP class, and a fine of $150. Now almost 10 years later, I want to do some volunteer work. Most of the opportunities ask for a background check, which I am fine to sign a release for however will a DWI exclude me from volunteer work?
I do contract work for a couple government associations so I have to have a background check available to send for any new project work. I have a National Criminal Background Check from Lexis Nexus that I just renewed and it comes back as clear, I also have a People Wise report that shows my DMV records and it shows my DWI.
How should I proceed? I know I am going to disclose it but is there anything else I should do?
Make a note of the strides you've made in your life since then.
Me and my friend Mike was leaving from my boyfriends house it was 6:45 am, Mike was driving. My boyfriend gave Mike the keys because I was still drunk from the night before. It was raining real hard so we stoped to turn around plus it was still dark when we went to turn around in a driveway we ran into a ditch and got stuck. Well Mike my friend left to call someone to pull the truck out of the ditch and I didnt want to leave the truck becaue it was My boyfriends truck.well the peoples house I was at, invited me in because it was raining then the cops showed up they saw the truck stuck in the ditch....They came to the door of the house I was at and asked who it belonged to, I said me its my boyfriends truck. They ask if I had been drinking then they gave me a breathalyzer and charged me with a DUI....But they never saw me driving the truck My friend was driving not me But they still charged me with it because I was the only one there. Mike had already left to get help...
Although I am not a NC attorney and I am not offering any legal advice in this matter (you need to find and retain an...
Many people who come into our offices after having been charged or arrested for a Driving While Impaired (DWI) offense figure there's a way to "beat" a DWI, and that if only they find a magic key, they'll be sprung loose from the nightmare of a DWI conviction.
It's a nice thought...
I was leaving post and govt officer has they call them self follow me for about 1 . 5 miles I was off post when he stop me I ask him why he put me over he didn't tell me I ask twice he ask me for my license which I don't have I told I didn't have one and he went to his car and ran my name and came back to my car and told me do you know why you don't have a license and it is because you have 2 DWI then he ask me if I Ben drinking I told him no as soon as I say that another govt officer with a mp got behind his car and they ran to my car and he told me the reason why they pull me over was because i was in the middle lane they ask me to blow and I told him no he arrest me take me to the station and don't do blood or piss test or make me take a sobriety test at all . don't lock me up either . Good case
My question is do I have a good case in federal court no evidence the cop never ask me to do a field sobriety test all he wanted me to do was to blow I refuse I didn't blow . My car is not on camera for going over the lane like he was no camera he didn't take blood or make me piss he didn't put me in front of a judge to tell me what my charges where . He didn't let me make my phone call so someone can watch me blow into the machine . all he did was watch me for 10 muns and he wrote on the ticket that he is a field officer he observe me for 10 muns and he can tell that I am ruck . And this one is on federal land so do I have a good case I suppose to get my license back in June of this year
