Can an attorney help me with this rather convoluted tale of DWI/DUI convictions and subsequent license suspensions?
I was a licensed SC driver and was convicted of my 1st DWI in NC in Oct '07. My license was suspended for a year. I was then convicted of a 2nd misdemeanor DUI in SC in Jan '11 and a 3rd misdemeanor DWI in NC in Feb '11. These last 2 convictions haven't been reported to the other state's DMV as of yet (nearly 3 years). The SCDMV shows I was eligible to receive my license back in January of 2012 but NC reports I'm suspended until Feb. 2015. I am aware that further suspensions could result if & when NC/SC find out about the third DWI/DUI. I've tried to contact the courts & both state's DMVs to try and make them aware of the 3rd offense to no avail. I decided to wait until the NC suspension is up in 2015 to attempt to restore driving privileges but still fear suspensions then. What can I do?
Really the best thing to do is just wait out the process and not needlessly inform other states about these offenses....
I was convicted of three misdemeanor charges of Driving Under the Influence in NC/SC six years ago all in a span of one year. Since then, I have completed a bachelor's degree in psychology and a master's degree in criminal justice while working full-time. and staying clean and sober. I would like to be a substance abuse counselor and obtain my Master of Social Work. However, I am hesitant to spend the time and money acquiring this degree if ultimately I will be denied licensure. Can anyone offer sound advice as to whether this would be a worthwhile endeavor or an exercise in futility?

I got a DUI in Kennewick, WA in 2008, while going through a divorce and planning a move back to my home state of SC. I was to be assessed and take classes in SC. I began the classes several times, but never actually completer them. Now, not only has my license here been suspended, but there is a warrant in WA state for being in violation. This is really a set back for me not being able to have my license. What's the statute of limitation?
Statute(s) of limitations apply to the time in which conduct can be charged criminally. They do not apply to create an...
Son was in car accident in october. He suffered tbi and other injuries. They said he crossed median into other lane and hit another driver who died at scene. While immobile another car hit him. They arrested spn upon release of hospital 4 days later. They had previously told me there was a strong odor of alcohol. The hospital told us they drew blood for authorities at same time they drew theirs and there was not any alcohol in his system. He is now wearing a scram bracelet which we are ok with because he has never really been a drinker anyway. It happened between greenville and greenwood sc.

It is most likely too late to do anything at this point. Withdrawing a plea generally is only possible in very limited...
I was convicted of Felony DUI (Great Bodily Injury) on Sept. 17, 2009. I was sentenced to 30 days house arrest and 5 years of Probation suspended on 15 years imprisonment. My probation end date is Sept. 17, 2014 and have no issues regarding probation. My main concern is my Drivers License. Per South Carolina statute a persons Drivers License can only be suspended for the time of imprisonment plus 3 years. Also in this statue it says ; " This period of incarceration shall not include any portion of a suspended sentence such as probation, parole, supervised furlough, or community supervision." I've been to the DMV and they have told me my license is suspended until 2027 and only a court order can change that. How is this possible and what are my options pursuant to South Carolina Law?
It seems as if the DMV considers the suspended sentence as controlling on them. I think you should get a local...
