Charged with DUI & Wreckless endangering in Oregon. Will it affect my Washington teaching certification?
I do not believe I qualify for Oregon's diversion program so this will be a first dui conviction. My 5 year old was in the car with me. I do not have a criminal record of any kind. I am a private school administrator in Washington state. I just started working at this school. My background check was cleared prior to these charges. Will this affect my current job or will it show up when I do a background check in the future at other jobs?
If you do not get a diversion or dismissal, this will show up on your criminal record. But you work for a private...
I believe that my sentence papers a judge signed is wrong. How can I go in front same judge to verify?
I pled guilty to 2nd DUI. I also pled guilty (due to guilty plea of dui) to a probation violation on 1st dui. I missed a probation meeting. I was sentenced to mandatory jail time and home detention for DUI. Judge allowed me to do the probation violation on home detention also. In court, the judge announced it was 30 days jail time for the violation. I was given 120 days total for the violation, which is what the court papers said. I believed at the time it was due to conversion of time to home detention, but HD officer told me that no it was day-for-day time. I believe the papers were written wrong. How can I go back to judge to ask about the time. I have no criminal history and was my first ever P.V. for missing a meeting with PO.
Your best bet is going to be to contact the attorney you had at the time. If there needs to be a motion for sentence...

How is it legal in Washington state to have an ignition interlock put into your car after being bailed out?
In Washington state, if you get a 2nd DUI (even if the prior is negligent driving, it still counts as a DUI), how is it legal for the state to mandate that an ignition interlock be put into your car within 5 business days of being bailed out? RCW 10.01.050 states, "No person charged with any offense against the law shall be punished for such offense, unless he or she shall have been duly and legally convicted thereof in a court having competent jurisdiction of the case and of the person." From this, isn't it technically illegal for the state to be punishing people by mandating ignition interlocks before being found guilty?
Were you on probation? Could it have been a violation? You have not given sufficient facts. Retain counsel for this...
f I am a habitual offender not anymore for driving 3rd degree license suspended its been awhile that I've been back since but i remember him saying to me if he saw me again in his courtroom he would give me 70 days in Sunnyside Washington its been about 2.yrs maybe 3 since that day I recently got pulled over in the same town this time its driving 2nd they sited me gave me a court date I missed it will the judge do as he said even if it's been that long since I've gotten in trouble
There is no way to guess what a Judge is going to do. Your best bet is to have an experienced attorney help you with...
I was pulled over the other night and was given the sobriety test which I seemed to pass. Except they said my eye kinda twitched on the pen test. Before I was pulled over I had a beer about 3 hours before driving which was bad judgment I thought it was fine to drive. I was arrested but this is the 1st time I've been arrested. Because I wasn't indangering anyone would they drop the charges to a less offense.
If this is a first time offense, for any illegal activity, you will have a chance. You may want to consult with a...
Im on a deffered dui and got pulled over lastnight and got another one can i fight it and stay on deffered?
ok i got pulled over for a dui,, the reason he pulled me over was because he said i was swerving.. i had one drink and wasnt swerving i have a mechanical issue with my car, also he was behind an suv and had to way of seeing me because we were all pretty close together. He then swerved in the on coming traffic lane and passed the car without using his blinker and then used it to get in front of the car but also cut her off then pulled me over is that ok? The lady in the car verifies everything is there any probable cause to pull me over and can i fight this? on top of it all i had my car impounded the paper they gave me had the wrong information for the impound lot and also when i got to my car the keys were no where to be found after calling wsp twice we located them and he had them on him
A lot of possible issues going on here. You never say what evidence they eventually came up with to arrest you for DUI....
