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 unfortunately received a DUI when I was 19 years old. I am now 20, and about to take my VASAP classes. During research, I found that in some programs, they will drug/alcohol test each session. However, I couldn't find details about the Underage alcohol program. I am under no circumstance an addict of any sort, I'm a college student who enjoys the occasional party, and unfortunately wouldn't pass a drug test on the count of marijuana. Any insight?
Stop smoking now and hope they do not test you.

Miranda generally isn't an issue when it comes to DUI, but do you realize you never asked a question?
I got a DUI charge in April 2013 and a Driving on a suspended charge on January 2014. My initial charge was in Fairfax county and ASAP was on Loudoun county. Loudoun ASAP closed my case and it was completed. I got my license back from Virginia and moved to a different state. Now my PO from Fairfax is bringing me to the court for Probation Violation. There was no alcohol charge on the second violation and my record is clean other than the DUI. Any advice on this?
Get a lawyer. It does not matter that the new charge was not alcohol related. Even though your ASAP requirement was...
