My fiance got arrested on a dui in my car. I was not present and had no knowledge of the event, but the officer issued me a ticket via my fiance to show up in municipal court stating that I knowingly loaned my car to an intoxicated driver to drive on public streets. Is it illegal for him to issue a document stating that I knew when I had no idea
Yes, it's a legal ticket. Whether you are guilty or not is a different question. Hire a lawyer and fight it if you don'...

I am curious , as I have not retained a lawyer . What the process of reinstatement is if i moved to a different state ?

I received 3 dui's in Wisconsin 9 years ago in the span of 3 weeks . 2 of them were for alcohol within legal limits . 004 and . 006 respectively . My license has been revoked since February 2004 .
Your background information is very confusing. The only state in which you've revealed any conduct meriting a license...
I moved from IL to NY and got a DWaI here. I paid all the fines, went to court, etc and it all ended here so I went to the DMV to get my license after the NY suspension period and IL had put a hold on my license. My question is what are my options? My license was expired and I paid the fine for driving without a valid license. Doesn't that mean I was driving without a license? How does IL have the right to punish me for something I did in another state without a license (the only connection to IL)? Should I get an OOS hearing packet and do that whole thing as it said on the Sec of State's website? Or is my only option trying to get it down to reckless driving? I don't want to go back to court so this is not really an option for me. Also can someone tell me if Im actually charged in IL now?
Have you paid the reinstatement fee or whatever is required in NY? You will not be able to get an IL DL unless and...
I was convicted with a DWaI in NY where I live. But my problem here is that my license has been revoked (as in IL has put a national hold on DMV registry) even after all of the court, state and DMV reinstatement fee and finishing out my NY suspension. IL did not give me a summary suspension of 6-months like would be for the average first-time IL license holder. Mine was revoked. First, let me see if I understand: - NY's DWaI (BAC below .08) = IL DUI - Expired IL license = still an IL license (last valid state lic) - First time DUI offense -> summary suspension of 6 months - CONVICTION of DUI w/o lic in IL = aggravated DUI = revoked. I was convicted in NY and driving w/o license was dropped. I was CONVICTED of DUI. IL cant revoke based on what my conviction WOULD've been had I been in IL?
Were you driving on a IL license when you got your DUI in NY? If so, your problems your facing are because you were...
In a DWI/DUI arrest case does police need consent of driver to have a Blood alcohol level drawn ? And if police does not use implied consent law to draw blood for BAC especially when intoxication and an accident may have been suspected, is that deviation from standard protocol.
Consent or a warrant. are needed for a DUI, but it doesn't mean they won't charge you.

Haven't drank in years and fond religion and my wife is losing her eyesight due to diabetes and I need to get a Drivers License. What options due I have
You have to make a request with the Secretary of State to reinstate your license. There, you can show all the...
