I just got off of probation 8/19/13 and have been a temporary worker at a client site for almost a year now. Today I was surprised by a formal offer letter pending the satisfactory results of a comprehensive background check. Will my CWOF show on a third party check? I'd love to get hired here but it would be a bummer if I didn't on the basis of my first (and only) misdemeanor offense.
It probably will unless you move to seal your record It also depends it part on the type of business you work....
If enrolled in a first time offender DAE class listed on the mass.gov page, do they drug test the participants? If so, do they test specifically for what you were on during OUI or just plain urine screen? It appears online that only multiple offenders are drug tested.
Hello - The only time drug testing will be a term of probation is if the judge ordered it during your plea. Check...

In April 2012 I was involved In a small fender bender. An SUV swerved into my lane, without signaling, trying to get around a stopped vehicle turning left. Because of this I struck the rear of his vehicle at a low rate of speed. There was NO damage to the other SUV and minimal damage to my sedan (grille damage estimated at $275) we decided not to pursue. 6 months later I receive notice the other driver is going after my insurance company. I am found at fault and the other driver is paid out $21,000 for a whiplash claim (14 k medical 7 k payout) he did not claim any property damage. I have picture of both vehicles on the day of the accident. And need to gather more evidence to help my appeal. Any suggestions?
What is your basis for an appeal? Your insurance company does not have any motivation to pay more on a claim then they...

If you don't have a lawyer and can't afford one, ask the court for a lawyer to be assigned to your case. There is no...
In the case, person was pulled over for speeding and upon the stop officer noticed slurring of speech. The field sobriety test was given in which the person failed and was arrested. At the police station a Breathalyzer was given in which the person blew a .205.
This person needs to consult with an experienced DUI defense attorney immediately. If you don't know of one, call an...
I am a Massachusetts resident, and received a DUI in Virginia. I was ordered to 5 days in prison, ASAP, fines, and to install an Ignition Interlock Device for 6 months in my vehicle. I've done the prison time, paid the fines, and am starting ASAP. However, I do not own a vehicle, and never drive. I live in Boston and take public transportation everywhere. My ASAP officer told the Virginia ASAP office this, and they said I had to do it anyways, even if it's a friend's car. This seems outrageous, especially considering Massachusetts doesn't make first time offenders install a IID. What can happen if I don't comply with this provision?
When you committed a crime in Virginia, you subjected yourself to the laws of that Commonwealth. Massachusetts cannot...
