Omaha Law

I recently got put on the number system for probation where I have to call in every morning and if I hear my number I have to go in and test. What type of test do they do? An etg test or jus a regular 8 panel test?

do almost all minors who get a DUI get their case moved to juvenile court? if not, what percentage do?

I recently got a DUI. I am 17 years old. I rear ended a friend of mine. i blew a .117. What should i expect for my punishment to be and what can i do to minimize it?
You retain a local DUI lawyer to fight it. Avvo has a terrific "find a lawyer" tool.
Got in an accident with my friend, when cops arrived I was outside of car, friend was very drunk in back seat. They had intended to arrest her for the DUI until her boyfriend showed up and insisted I was driving to which I was then wrongfully arrested because neither would admit to driving. My sister is a cop and showed up to station to pick me up. Her fellow cops that arrested me even told her they knew I wasn't driving but their "witness" said i was. BUT now heres a huge problem. Later on my sister was looking up my record and the arrest and found a warrant from 2008 from my 2nd DUI (which the cops did not see when they arrested me.) I never knew of this and very confused what to do or even how that happened I have arranged to meet with lawyer later this week.
Take this off of the website as it could be used as evidence to prove you were driving. It may be considered an...
Including my reinstatement and recertification fines to the county. Can they deny my license reinstatement and if they do would I get my money back for paying my fines? My probation end date is 08/25/2014. I told my p.o. all about my traffic citation when I saw him in July two days after my traffic citation. He called me today and told me to turn myself in should I because I never received anything about a probation violation hearing. What should I do?
Call the lawyer who represented you on the underlying case and follow that persons advice.
I used to live in Colorado, which is where I got my dui. I have recently had to move to Nebraska. Now, with the laws being so different, I cannot find a way to meet my court requirements for Colorado here in Nebraska. I have to do 24 hours of level 2 alcohol education and 52 hours of alcohol out patient therapy. Nothing in Nebraska offers that amount of time. And Routt county in Colorado doesn't let you do the online courses. so right now I am stuck between a rock and a hard place.
Contact the local probation office and find out who does the alcohol programs. The do offer treatment as you describe.
I recently got a DUI and blew a .117. I am 17 years only but turn 18 in 2 months. Will i be able to get an interlock system for my car once i turn 18 so that i am allowed to drive?
Likely not but you'll have to speak to a local dui lawyer for sure.
