I got pulled over and was found with a basically full open beer in my car.I'm 23 so I admitted to having a sip and it was a stupid Idea. I received a ticket and when I looked at my ticket the officer screwed up my last name by leaving one letter out. He also screwed up my driver license number by one digit as well. I also never signed the ticket. So I was wondering should I fight it do I have a chance of it being thrown out. Should I pay the fine and go on my way or do I have a chance of it being thrown out.
I would not recommend trying to fight the ticket on the grounds that there were minor typos on your citation. The...

I was convicted of my 4th DUI in 2010 (all in OR) and was sent to prison for 25 months. After parole, I completed all of my conditions, including treatment. I finally got off supervision back in 2013. Now I am planning on moving to Pittsburgh, PA in the near future. Will I be able to get a driver's license there when I move? I haven't been in any trouble since my last DUI in 2010. Thank you.

Not enough information. Were you arraigned and then dismissed? Why was it dismissed?

I live in Oregon State. I received a DUI in 2004. I got diversion and probation for this crime, but I completed it as required. Then in 2007 I was convicted of a DUI, and completed everything as required. Now on New Year's Eve, of 2014, I was stopped and cited for a DUI. I blew a 0.11 BAC and have filed an DMV appeal hearing to try and save my license. I have my first court date Jan 28, 2015, and will plead not guilty. I'm looking to hire an attorney.
I am not licensed to practice in Oregon, but the simple answer to your question is no if you can win the DMV hearing...
