2012 I was acquitted of dwi charges, before the criminal case, the civil courts found the accusation enough to revoke driving.
is this right?, after the state could not prove their accusation they had no proof of me driving at all, I believed my driving status should have been restored to the condition it was in before this accusation was made against me. This accusation is what the civil courts used to base their decision on to revoke my privilege to drive in Vermont. Why would I or anyone for that matter pay a penalty for a crime they did not commit. Am I missing something ??.... help!!!.
There was a lower burden of proof for the civil case involving your license. But, a not guilty verdict normally trumps...
In 2012 I was tried for DWI in Burlington VT. and was found not guilty, Why am I being forced to take Vermont's CRASH PROGRAM ..
I was standing in the parking lot of a hotel waiting for the owner of the car when the police arrived they walked into the building so I asked one of the officers still outside what was going on, oh!, some sort of disturbance!. just then the other officers came out of the hotel and informed me that I was being processed for DWI, I was not pulled over, viewed by anyone and certainly not any of the police officers there, was I seen driving, operating, or in control of a car or any type of motor vehicle that entire night. So how could this happen?, what do I do now.? What are my options?, do I even have any options?!.
Obviously, you floated the above stated defenses at trial and were not believed. So at this point your protests are...
Can my husband be charged with dui civil and criminal?
So my husband got arrested for dui in our dooryard. Our next door neighnor said they say him driving while being intoxicated so she called the cops. They showed up and the husband of the next door nieghbor walked down and punched my husband in the face in our yard. . The cop said to my husband that he was being arrested for dui. They brought him to the hospital to get his nose checked out then they brought him to the police station to do a breathalizer. Of course he blew numbers cause we were having drinks at our house. So now because the neigbor said they saw him and he blew numbers there charging him when he never was on the motorcycle. Our next door neighbor hates my husband for past issues. The cop also felt the pipes on bike and the werent even hot plus i had the key.

I was the passenger in my car and the person driving said I had been driving earlier I hadn't. I got arrested too.
We both had been drinking, but the person driving had a suspended license. I think she aS trying to cover her butt by saying she HAD to drive because I wasn't able to. I also git arrested and charged. How can I fight this? I didn't know a police officer could use someone's oral stAtement as evidence to arrest someone when there is no proof that I drive that car. What should I do?
I am not licensed in Vermont, but the issue is something I have seen in CA more than once. First of all, in Vermont,...
Can handheld breathalyzers be used as evidence to convict me of an underage drinking ticket in Vermont?
I blew a 0.03 and denied drinking any alcohol. If I go to court, do I have a chance at fighting it because they didn't do a calibrated breathalyzer at the station? I read handheld devices aren't accurate enough to be admissible in court.
Most states do not allow these tests to be admitted. You will need a VT lawyer to confirm this is the case there....
I was jailed for 39 days after a dwi, was not told job was in jeopardy, and told when released I lost job. Unemployment denied.
I have an outstanding letter of recommendation from employer, and had been with them 4 years. I believe I am entitled to unemployment. The job and the benefits are from Putnam County NY. I was not even told that I had lost my job until I phoned them from jail to check in, and was told I had been terminated 3 weeks earlier, with no correspondence from them. Please help me.
Not sure what your question is here. I don't believe the cops have a duty to inform you your job is in jeopardy if you...
