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...
I just got a DUI, and was appointed a Public Defender, however I'm really looking to get it off my record entirely, maybe getting it expunged later. Can public defenders do that? Or should i get a lawyer? What's the difference between them both?
Public Defenders are attorneys. Your choice is between an attorney who is appointed to you by the state because of...
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 arrested at a checkpoint for suspicion of DUI last August. I plead guilty to a DWAI in December of 2012. Before I plead guilty, I received documentation from the DA's office of an investigation into inaccurate blood test results from the CDPHE. Mine came back at 0.11. Recently, I came across an article about ongoing bias and poor training at the CDPHE. Is it worth my time and money to try and overturn my conviction using the bias, poor training and history of inaccurate results? Or am I better off just filing for early termination (in good standing, all conditions have been met, no failed UAs)? Do I risk facing additional penalties if I fail to overturn the conviction? http://localtvkdvr.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/msec-letter-and-report.pdf
If you had an attorney, consult with that attorney. If you did not, then find one to consult with. The only risk would...
Hey, I plead guilty to a Dui last year around halloween. Since then I was placed on probation for two years, and ordered to complete classes/therapy, community service, random drug tests, and pay some fines. After about nine months, I've competed all the terms and have been compliant, except for a few missed UA's because of missed calls. I asked my case manager if I could switch to unsupervised probation, but she works for a non-profit company contracted by the state to supervise me and said she 'couldn't do that.' The judge informed me at my sentencing that he would not let me off early, so I was wondering what the process was for switching from supervised probation to unsupervised probation in Colorado. Do I have to go to court, talk to the real probation office, file paperwork or what?
You need to file a motion with the court. It is a bad fact that the judge made a point to tell you that you would not...
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...
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...
