In July of 2002 I lost my 22 year old daughter to an alcohol related accident that would change my life for ever. Up until that point in my life I had unsuccessfully tried to control my drinking for 30 years. I placed myself into rehab in Aug of 2002. Last month by the grace of God and the Fellowship of AA I had the honors of celebrating 11 years of sobriety!!! I have numerous people that are willing to write letters in my behalf to support the fact that i have been clean since rehab. My psychiatrist from rehab whom I am still I contact with told me that he would write a letter also. My question is does it make sense to file for a Governor Pardon in an attempt to have my driving privileges restored. I babysit my grand children and need to drive to get the to and from school, doctors...

I received my first DUI in June 2008. I had my driving privileges fully restored in August of 2009. I received a 2nd DUI in Feb 2010. My license was suspended for a period of 5 years. I have less than 2 years to go on the suspension. Am I eligible for any type of license or hearing prior to Feb 2015?

When I look on the county sheriff web site under his SS number, I find the adjudication withheld in both the juvenile and adult records. I always thought that as a juvenile, your records were sealed. The juvenile offense was a sham offense. He did not participate in the crime, but because, 12 hours later, he was in the proximity of the stolen merchandise, he was judged as guilty as the perpetrators of the crime and was given juvenile sanctions, adjudication withheld. The other offense, was a plea bargain. What do we have to do in this situation to get this stuff expunged from his record so he can get a job in the future?
Withhold of adjudication means the judge took the plea but declined to enter a conviction on the record. Theoretically,...
I was at the club one day and I'm only a social drinker. Had two drinks that night and my friend told me to go to someone's house and they offer me to smoke something and didn't tell me what it was. So after wards I get this instant rush of a wierd feeling and he doesn't really tell me what it was. I freak out and drive away and I start hallucinating like crazy and I dial 911. I tell them that I think I'm high and I need help bc someone gave me something. They come and help me and I wake up in the hospital and was given a crash report that I hit a car. Is it possible that il get a dui for that? This was like a week ago. I'm freaked out bc I don't do drugs at all and my doctor told me my blood work for alcohol was low. So I know I wasn't drunk. need some advice.
Yes you can be charged and it is likely you will be charged based on what you have stated. You need to consult with a...
I was accepted into the sales management training program at SW pending backgorund check and all that good stuff. I was arrested for DUI may 2012. I was convicted I believe at the end of June 2012. I havent been in any trouble since that. Isolated incident. I told the employer about it as well after they offered me the job (didnt submit background yet). It is not a driving position.. should I be okay or should I be worried?
You know this is a great question. Unfortunately it really is not a legal question a criminal lawyer can answer. In...
DUI received in Michigan. In the time all this was going on i moved to florida and did all my court ordered penalties like aa meetings and paid what i had to. But still have not received anything from the secretarial of state for a suspension of my license which should have suspended my license for 1 year. So i still drive around with the paperlicense issued to me. I was able to keep it since the officer did not show up for the hearing. Tried to get a florida license but they told me something was pending in michigan. Tried calling every place in michigan from court to sherrifs office to secretary of state but transfer me from one place to the other.
