If I was sentenced to take a DWI course as a part of my DWI conviction in Rhode Island, where can I go to take the course?
I'm just not sure where I need to go... are there certified providers, or can anybody offer a class? I want to go to the right place.
The simplest answer is to ask your probation officer. He will know who is approved and who is not. Next you can likely...
Two of my friends and I were on a beach in Newport RI. There was an open beer next to us that one of us had been drinking. Cops came over and told us that they had been called because a bunch of people were splitting a 30-rack and getting drunk on the beach (the cops saw them leaving as the they arrived). They said that they had to give us a ticket "in case anyone was watching," but assured us it was no big deal and like a parking ticket. The ticket didn't say how much it was on it and "like a parking ticket" didn't sound like a big deal so we weren't too worried. We just got the ticket (which was written out to just one of us) and it's for nearly 500 dollars. One thing that's weird is the beach name written on the ticket is a slang name, not the official name if that helps. Advice?
Bring it to court, the cop will probably reduce or dismiss it there. If not, fight it and point the finger at your...
My refusal was dismissed in judicial court because they filed it with the wrong court. Can I still get charged in district?
It was my second refusal and the police officer did not see it. They filed it in judicial court but the judge dismissed it and said it may get transferred to district court which is where they originally needed to file it. Since they dismissed the charge can I still be taken to district court?
You should consult with an experienced DUI attorney in your area who can look into your situation in more detail. With...
If a cop pulls somebody over for a DUI but instead gives them a traffic ticket, is the DUI information carried to traffic court?
Lets say you're pulled over and the cop breathalyzes you and you're over the limit and instead of detaining you, gives you a ride home and gives you a speeding ticket. If you challenge the ticket in court, can the cop use the fact that you were driving under the influence against you? Or is that dismissed since you weren't charged with a DUI?
First of all, it wounds like you may have dodged a bullet. The state can bring the DUI charges against you at any time...
Back in august I was stopped and asked to perform a breathalyzer test. I refused this test and in court was found not guilty to a DUI but took a plea deal for a 13 month loss of license and a refusal charge. In October I drove my mothers car due to an emergency at work and was hit head on in an accident. I was arrested on the scene and sentenced to home confinement. I have paid off all my court fees and have taken all the required courses for reinstatement. I am now waiting until September 2014 to role around to get my license back. I requested my court files and noticed it said "no further loss of license" once my home confinement was finished. Can this mean I am eligible to reinstate my license now?
That sounds like what it means. However, I would check with the court's clerk to be sure, and would also check with...
