I got into a single car accident six months ago, I fractured my ribs, face, and spine in 3 places and had spinal fusion, along with severe head trauma and brain bleeding. don't remember but i Refused a roadside sobriety test (Dmv suspeneded 3 years) due to my injuries I wasn't really able, but in my stooper told the cop I had been drinking. the officer didn't get a warrant for my B.A.C. as required because I said that. I've been going to court for 5 months, and they can't get results on me from hospital, pretty sure my lawyer asked them to look at this as my first and judge is considering. I'm aware dmv will still consider this my second. I asked "why we weren't fighting it" and my lawyer said "they could bring in doctors from hospital who will say I was intoxicated an the on call officer

then it asks if my license was revoked which it was for 6 months then ask explain....how do i get out of answering either question on an application. Help please
You correctly answer no but explain you suffered an administrative suspension of your DL. It will be difficult not to...
I have a CT license, and received a suspension in RI for first offense DUI. I realize CT will be notified of this through the compact agreement and may suspend my CT license. Will I be notified by CT if they do suspend my license, or should I assume it is suspended in CT due to RI conviction? to be more concise: can i drive in CT until I am notified otherwise?
Yes, but make sure they have your current address. Periodic checking on the status of your license is advisable....
I have a 3rd DUI convicted in 2007. I have done everything required by the DMV to get a hearing to reverse my license revocation. I am a full time student that is about to start working in the field I am studying but I just do not have the money to pay an attorney to represent me. I could do a payment plan but I have never herd of an attorney that would do such a thing.
Most DUI attorneys work on a payment plan, however, I don't know any DUI lawyers who work for free. You have to...
I was parked at a rest area for over 2 hours. I'm on probation for 6th degree larceny with 4 months to go. I was sleeping in the car when a cop knocked on the window. I picked the keys up from the floorboard, put in ignition to roll down window. Did 2 field sobriety tests and cop kept barking different orders during the test and saying what did I tell you to do? I did everything he asked. He put me in cuffs and said I was under arrest. Was informed that another cop followed me for 10 miles after almost hitting him, which was impossible because I was parked there for at least 2 hours. I still blew .15 but it's not that I'm trying to beat the charge, it's that I'm the primary source of income for my parents and going to jail would kill them. I can't afford an attorney so I need help.
If you can't afford an attorney, you need to ask the court for one. That's your right. Don't do this without a lawyer.
The DUI happened in a different part of the state than where I'm on probation for. However, my fear is that I will be violated of probation. I don't actually deal with a probation officer anymore, I deal with the state program and give random tests every 3 months. I have 4 months left of probation. I was parked at a rest area (sleeping) but had to put the keys in the ignition to roll down the window so I wasn't pulled over. Any thoughts on this? Does CT give 1st timers jail or just a program? Im already looking into a program here, wondering if I do it before it's ordered it might help me.
Getting into a program early will help. If the court allows you to use an Alcohol Education program, you might be able...
This person also owes me an extreme amount of money which I believe he committed Larceny to obtain this money however the police have said it is a "gray" area. Will the police arrest him if I tell them his location when he checks in on a social network, does this help prove this individual has bad character and fraud-ed me into loaning him money?
His arrest on the warrant wont have any impact on whether or not any action will be taken about the "larceny" case....
