Manchester Law

Let's say in Connecticut that someone is arrested for a DUI. They go to their arraignment and the DUI is dismissed the but moving violation they received along with the DUI was nolled. Does that mean, according the the Erasure Law, that the charge is completely off the record after 20 days and nobody, such as potential employers, can see it? The ticket, as I understand, will be active for 13 months.
You are correct the dismissal will take 20 days to enter, while the nolle will take 13 months to drop off

If you have a Court date, Im guessing you are charged with a crime. It seems as though the crux of your question is can...
In 1998, I was arrested for DUI. I was convicted, and ordered to pay a fine and complete a driver education course. I paid the fine, but was unable to complete the course as I had moved to California. I received a notice recently from the CA DMV informing me that my CA driver's license would be suspended, because CT had reported me to the PDPS. I called the CT DMV and they told me that the court in Manchester, CT had issued the suspension. The clerk told me that the judge had issued a bench warrant in 2000 for failing to complete the course, which was vacated in 2005 and converted to a license suspension. The clerk told me that an in-person appearance was mandatory, and would not tell me what sort of fines and penalties I would have to pay. Do I have to appear, and what am I looking at?
You should contact a local attorney in the area to see if that attorney can appear for you and instead of you!
My insurance was ANTHEM, After I became disabled due to an under insured drunk driver, suddenly my primary insurance changed to MEDICARE. The attorney got his $33,333.33 and now I owe an additional $8,000.00 on top of the $63,000.00 I received for my new bionic neck. WHY IS THAT FAIR? Had I known I was filing a lawsuit, just for the attorney to profit, I would have done nothing. It really seems stupid that the attorneys fee is not diminished since I am now in the red. He NEVER told me this was going to happen. Does he not have a duty to tell me this from the beginning?
I assume you signed a fee agreement with the attorney. If the fee agreement provided attorney fees of 1/3, and he...

I was arrested for a DUI in October of 2013. My license is still suspended because I do not have a car and can't afford the fees at the moment. I'm moving from CT to NC. Can I apply for a new license in NC or do I need to pay restoration in CT before I can get a license anywhere else even though I don't own a car?
DMVs provide information to each other. If you have a suspension in one state, other states are likely to not give you...
