Help! My stories are not adding up from what im saying in court and to my evaluator and lawyer about my dui conviction.
Today I saw a license reinstatement evalator and he said I lied about two times from my evaluation it put me in panic and im always anxious around the law. I do not want to speak with a informal hearing officer because it might be scary and I hate the fact I need to spew out every answer correctly according to what I said in court in paper and to my lawyer and evaluator should I hire an attorney and let him do everything because I cant speak correctly infront of professionals because they are looking for that one flaw to deter me from getting my license back? Also It doesnt matter I do have to speak infront of a secretary of state informal hearing officer to get driving privileges. I thought lying would lessen my chances of guilt and convictions but I still got the book thrown at me .

BAIID service not available by deadline - consequences?
Have had BAIID without incident 9 months. Service due this Friday, called last Friday and today, provider says no apt available until Jan 7 (5 days late). My paperwork says pre-scheduled apt Jan 2, the due date. I have a call in to Draeger, waiting for response. Provider says lockout will occur. I always call a week in advance to confirm pre-scheduled apt; have always done my due diligence. What will happen with SOS if Draeger cannot provide alternative? Formal reinstatement hearing scheduled end of January. I am extremely concerned because I have done everything by the book. Any advice greatly appreciated, thank you.
Hopefully you have a lawyer. You should contact your lawyer immediately for assistance.
Can you pay the $500.00 reinstatement fee while formal hearing results are still pending?
Driving on RDP now, would like to pay in advance if possible. Not certain how much time it would take if I wait until approved; trying to avoid another RDP for the sake of a few weeks. Once reinstatement is granted, how much processing time is involved in paying the fee if I wait until then? I called the SOS office, and they were vague. Thank you in advance for your comments.
No. The Secretary of State will not accept that fee until the reinstatement order is loaded on the system

Just curious on DUI checkpoints and being stopped for suspiciousion OF DUI. What's the best approach to take.
I'd like to know advice on giving officers the least amount of incriminating advise, but also know what I do have to tell them and what they can't force me to answer/do
The best approach to take is to not drink and drive. Otherwise, retain a criminal defense attorney. IF you come...
