I was stopped and arrested for DWI and Refusal in Virginia(Both 1st Offenses). I also received a PBJ judgment from Maryland for DUI(1st Offense) at the beginning of this year. What types of penalties could I face from these two charges and the possible probation violation charge? My residence state is in Maryland.
Virginia is not Maryland. If you went it alone in MD and think you may be able to do that here, you are in for a bad...
I recently got arrested for a DWI in Prince William County. My first time ever getting pulled over (supposedly going 50 in a 35 but we were already in the 45mph zone when I pulled over), I panicked and did admit to having two drinks earlier in the night when asked. Officer asked me to step out of the vehicle and perform the field sobriety tests; HGN, Walk and Turn 9 steps heel to toe counting out loud, Alphabet E-X, then standing on one leg raising the other one 6 in. off the ground and counting until he told me to stop (I counted up to 15- mississippi). I believe I performed these field test perfectly fine, but the breathalyzer is what killed it for me, .09 for PBT. ETD was .08. I have a clean record and +5 pts driving record. I don't find my deal to be quite fair.
Dropping a DUI to a reckless is a fair offer. Most attorneys offer a free consultation, so you should sit down with...
My son will apply for deffered action renewal but had a DWI conviction. Will that be a basis for a disapproval?
Under the federal statute authorizing the deferred action renewal, a DUI is enough to derail the process. You will...
I was sleep in the passenger seat, i was awaken by the driver screaming and yelling for us to switch seat and her sitting on my lap. I just slid over, I was intoxicated and had no idea what was going on. I slid over and that's when I saw the police behind us. i failed the breathalyzer and was arrested for DUI. She will not admit to driving. she has precious charges for driving with no license. (I was unaware). I have no idea what to do. I've never been in trouble before.
Unfortunately, if the car was still on when you switched seats the fact that she was driving before is irrelevant. The...
I moved out of state over a year and a half ago. My child's father gets summer time visitation. I have learned recently that he has had 2 charges within a month for an open container while driving and a DWI just a week ago. His court date for his DWI is scheduled for a few days after he is scheduled to pick up my child. Is there any way that I can hold visitation until after his court dates. I am concerned for my child's safety as well as the possibility of him recieving jail time during his visitation
If you refuse to comply with the court-ordered visitation then you could be in contempt of court and the father could...
I'd like to know if a Wreckless Driving reduction from a DUI in NV will hurt me with a DUI arrest in VA? BAC was a .10. The officer waited almost 3 hours before giving breathalyzer, made me do the FST on uneven pavement in very cold weather and searched my car without asking. He found nothing but I was arrested and my car was towed. I'm concerned this may be considered my 2nd offense??
Only a prior DWI conviction can cause you to be convicted of a DWI second offense in Virginia. A prior reckless driving...
I got DUI in Virginia, I was pulled over because i "barely stopped" at the stop sign. The reason officer was patrolling there, because someone reported gun shots. He suspected me being the one that fired a shot, and used my "traffic violation" as a probable cause to pull me over. He asked me if had drank and i said I had "two beers", he told me to step out the vehicle and he made me take field sobriety tests in which im very bad at because of my balance, I agreed to a breathalyzer test and got .11(BAC). As minor information, I will be turning 21 in a week, and my arraignment is right after my birthday, i do not know if that will have an effect on the case. The time when i got pulled over was about 2am, and i was pulled over in an area that i wasnt very familiar with because it was far.
There are several attorneys who will talk to you and give you advise about your case. The AVVO find a lawyer tool is an...
