I want to contest my case what is the best thing to do?
If you cannot afford a private attorney, make your first court appearance and request court-appointed counsel.
I was sentenced to two years probation after a DUI in which I refused the breathalyzer. This was my first offense and my record is clean other than the DUI. I have completed 12 months of probation (without a single failed ua) and completed all other conditions of probation. I have a good relationship with my po; he has lowered my ua's to 1 per month and I only have to meet with him once every two months. If I file for early termination, what are the chances the judge will grant my request?
Very unlikely. However, you can talk with a local attorney and explore that option. There will be no chance at early...
I called in the morning and had planned to go in the evening but when I got home my husband told me he had been laid off and I completely forgot until today. I plan to call PO and explain. I missed another one a few months ago that he gave me a warning for. Otherwise I have been perfect on probation and got all my classes and community service done very promptly. What do you think will happen? I am very worried because I only have 6weeks left on my probation.
every probation officer is different. They might cut you some slack. However, this is a technical violation of your...
I just got my first DUI, in July. I haven't had any other charges before, i haven't even been pulled over before until that day. I blew pretty high, but I'm very small. I want to go to Nursing School, but wondering if i can even get in, or take the test? Also, is there any way to get it expunged? Should i plead not guilty?
A conviction for DUI or DWAI will not prevent you from obtaining a nursing degree or from obtaining your nursing...
1st in 1990, 2nd in 1991, and now the 3rd in 2013. Refused any testing at time of arrest.
Her priors are very old, but they may still cause problems when it comes to the possibility of jail time. The best...
I was instructed to park in the right lane of a four-lane divided highway (45 MPH) where I performed the field sobriety tests in front of my car. The approach of the DUI checkpoint closed the right lane and all cars were directed into the left. However, I was parked far enough in front of the last patrol car with flashing lights that a driver could have possibly merged over to the right lane thinking that it is was no longer closed (similar to a construction zone when the cones end, people will merge over quickly). Would this safety issue be grounds for dismissing the evidence collected?
You've now added some details to your former question. You need to consult witha n experienced DUI defense attoreny to...
I have heard that a DUI checkpoint needs to be highly visible. If I could not see the DUI checkpoint until after I passed the last legal exit from the road, would that be grounds for dismissing any evidence collected from the checkpoint? Basically, it was about 1/3 of a mile from the last intersection before I could see the checkpoint (road curved and went down a hill).
Yes, there are specific state requirements for sign postings for DUI checkpoints that would allow a person to avoid the...
