I received a dui in MA. Araignment 3/30. When will my offense show on a CORI?
I was taken to hospital and received a ticket while in the hospital. I'm pleading guilty. First dui. Im looking for a job and want to know if my charge will appear on a cori check immediately? If I receive a CWOF will that change anything in relation to a CORI check?

Will my OUI show up on a third party background check?
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....
Mass DAE program - first time offender drug testing
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...

I filed a surcharge appeal from an auto accident and am awaiting a hearing.
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...

I'm accused of dui(3rd) last one was 10 years before, I was seen arguing with a guy that says I hit his car when the police arrived and arrested me for dui. If the breathalyzer is not allowed and police never witnessed me driving do I have a fighting chance in winning???
