Several years ago my friend got a DUI. Then another one a year later. She went through the classes and she got her drivers license back. A couple of years past and she forgot about them. She decided to go to nursing school and she graduated During the background check she forgot about her DUIs and didn't report it to the Nursing Bureau. During school she got a divorce. She went to court and got full custody for the kids. Her ex told her that if she tries and goes for child support he will report the DUIs to the Nursing Bureau. Which in turn will get her fired because she will probably lose her nursing license. He has holding that against her for the last 4 years . Can she get a court order (gag order) preventing him from reporting her past DUI's to the Nursing Bureau.
The problem is that a criminal conviction is a public record. Your friend needs to report the DUI to the Licensing...
My vehicle broke down and the tie rod end broke so I left my vehicle on the side of a rural road. My husband picked me up and we went home he called a tow truck. I had a few glasses of wine at home we went back to meet the tow truck and the cops were there trying to find the owner of the vehicle. I was then placed under arrest for DUI. I wasn't in a great mood I was a bit rude but I did not understand how I could be arrested for DUI when I was not driving the vehicle drunk. I wasnt even inside the vehicle nor did I have the keys. Now my license is suspended and have no clue on how to proceed with this.
In order to convict you for DUI, they must prove that you were driving under the influence of alcohol or that you were...

Officer initiated stop just after midnight (a Sunday night/Monday morning) for my brights being on in my headlamps. After completing several field sobriety tests, the officer had me blow into a handheld alcohol screening device - no idea what brand or model. I blew .09, and then .07 two minutes later. I asked the officer if I was free to go - since my last breath test measurement was below the legal limit - to which he replied that I was not and that he was placing me under arrest and would be transporting me to the county jail's "drunk-tank" (he didn't use those exact words, nor did he inform read me my Miranda rights, but from what I have read here on Avvo this may be fairly common). I was not asked to submit to further testing of blood or breath. Wasn't this just a PAS device?
The PAS is admissible evidence, although the weight of the evidence can be questioned. They should have had you blow...
