Felony or not does not matter to dmv. They count convictions. Three dui firsts would be a three year suspension. Dmv...
My son got charged for the first time in his life with DUI. Charges dropped vs Convicted for a lessen charge.
Is it a better deal to get a lessen charge or charges dropped with a plea bargain? I am just asking because if he gets a plea bargain that DUI charge and arrest will remain on his record forever, but if he gets disorderly conduct he will be convicted but will not look bad as a DUI. I just need any suggestions.
It is better to have the charges dropped. However, that's not the way the system works. You don't get to just pick your...
How far off road do you have to be to not be charged of actual physical control/dui of a vehicle that wouldn't start/being towed
Had an accident on motorcycle. Walked back up to where I was due to lack of cell service and zero passing motorists. Had drinks to calm nerves. Witnesses to not drinking prior to accident/drinking post accident. Went to scene 2 hours later to be towed out with someone's vehicle and police arrived while I was steering the bike out of the embankment. Keys in ignition but motorcycle wouldn't run. Witnesses to dead battery as well. I was down far enough that I couldn't put the bike on the kickstand and that it wouldn't come out of the embankment. Preformed FST on downhill slope and blew .12 and .10 after arrest at station. Thanks.
So were you sitting on Motorcycle? or walking next to it? Regardless, you should fight this case. Prosecutor could...
I was charged with a dui when officers stopped while my motorcycle was being pulled out by a truck. I was steering but the engine was off. I was then directed to perform the field test on the road next to his car. The road was sloped downhill. I blew a .10 at the station
It matters for a motion to quash arrest which would have taken place before the test at the station.
I was recently charged with section 18.2-266 of the code of Virginia. My B.A.C. was .10. In the signature line under "I promise to appear at the time and place shown above. Signing this summons is not an admission of guilt. I certify that my current mailing address is as shown above." I have received summons before and always signed every single one.
Yes. Since you were arrested, you would have been released by the Magistrate by signing a bond/bail release form,...
DUI in 2012. Recently Missouri sent me notice of Driver's License Suspension 30 days - What should I expect in Virginia?
DUI in 2012 in Missouri, received 2yr probation. Missouri violated me for minor traffic infraction. Paid fine. Yesterday, Missouri sends me a notice of 30 day driver's license suspension - 3 years after offense. Is Virginia going to suspend my license for a year?! For out-of-state DUIs you have the right to petition the court. I'm pretty sure I would be eligible for restricted but looking for guidance. Also I have completed intensive outpatient treatment and been sober for years now.
All states are supposed to honor each other's suspensions, so Virginia is supposed to suspend you. You may ask for a...
I've had something that's been bothering me for a while. To make a long story short, I went out with a friend for karaoke, met a European guy who seemed very nice and kept buying me drinks. When my coworker left, he offered to drive me. Since he rode with friends, I let him take my car. I wasn't aware of how drunk he may have been, and he not only wrecked my car, but he left me at the scene and told me not to say anything because of something about being deported. I wasn't sure what he meant or what was going on, so I stayed and ended up getting charged and convicted of the 1st DUI because I was at the scene, and the car was registered to me. I've had a perfectly clean record. I never said I was driving, but my mistake according to the judge is saying I didn't drive. What do I do?
If it has been more than ten days since the general district Court trial, you learn the lesson to not take...
