If I live in West Virginia (but neglected to change my driver's license over from Maryland where I previously lived) and then got a DUI in West Virginia, should I get my WV driver's license before my DUI hearing?
Yes. You have a lawful obligation to switch driver's license, tags, registration, etc. regardless of your dui charge as...
I live in WVa and my DUI hearing of the DMV court has been postponed twice now the first time was due to the cop out of town and my lawyer and I did not know why it happened a second time.
I see no one answered your question. Consider speaking to a local DUI attorney for more info.
I got a first offense DUI last month and i recently got denied for a public defender because of my savings account (which i started because i have been working every single day to save for the fine I am sure i will be getting). The lowest lawyer i can find is ranging from 4-6 grand and i just cant afford that at all. Do i get a court appointed attorney the day of court? I just don't want to show up looking like i don't care about this charge but i simply don't have the funds for a lawyer.
Contact the local Bar Association (an organization for lawyers) in your county. Most Bar Associations operate a lawyer...
I had an Arraignment for a DUI. The prosecutor told me "No alcohol". That's fine with me. I'm not on probation, but was advised that police can come to my home and breathalyze me. I'm concerned about that; reason being is that I've had prior issues with "corrupt" cops in my county. I've tried to file complaints against them about 2 years ago. I'm certain that the DUI was a "revenge" sort of issue, whole other story, unbelievable! Anyway, I don't trust any police in this area now. It would be so easy for them to alter the results of a breathalyzer. I just don't know how to protect myself. If I asked to be taken for a blood test, they don't have to honor that, correct? Please help, as I have very good cause for my concern. Thanks in advance!
Hire an attorney for the dui. They cannot just come to your house and give you a breath test.
I took a portable breathalyzer. I had not drank enough to think that I would not pass it! I could not believe the results, .21!!! I took a deep breath, did not hold back. Officer looked at the results, then wanted me to do it again, I did, he looked at the results again, and made my blow into it again! So I had blown into it 3 consecutive times, with only a couple of seconds in between each one.
While I would certainly call a local lawyer in your State, I would advise that you blow ZERO times into any portable or...
I was in one lane rd that goes through federal park and swerving to miss many pot holes. A federal park officer pulled me over an claimed I was impaired. I took and passes a breathalizer and let him search my car. He then gave me a ticket for failure to operate vehicle and a dui ticket. He did not arrest me but made me call a friend to drive my truck home. Both tickets had no fines and stated I would have go to court but had no court date. The incident happened in Maryland.
Yes you should get an atty. A DUI conviction will result in the suspension of your license, plus other penalties and...
I recieved my 45 day suspension in april of 2013. As of today I'm still suspended due to moving and car problems. I was told by dmv I had no other choice but to get a new car and request an out of state form for interlock program. I just got a car to use last week so I called dmv to get out of state form and now they are offering me incapable status. I already completed my safety classes and sent in letter with re-instatement fee. My question is if all this time I've been suspended will count as my 6 month suspension or will I have to wait another 6 months to drive?
Contact Interlock dept. at DMV headquarters for confirmation of all steps completed and in place for successful...
