I received a DUI and the officer asked if I had ever gotten one before. I told him yes in California 9 years ago. In California, a DUI stays on your record for 10 years. However, my ticket says I am charged with a DUI with no prior convictions. Is there a chance that I'll get charged in court with a 2nd instead of a 1st DUI?
I am not licensed to practice law in Nebraska, but either way of charging you is possible. The prosecutor is never...
for a DUI will it affect my reinstatement ? Do I put yes to being arrested? I was terminated due to illness and missing class and have all documentation passed out in class

Husband was charged with a 4th DUI that was a felony. He got sentenced in 2011. He received a 15 year revocation. They never wrote in the sentence about the interlock or a work permit.

I was at a party on new years eve, when the cops came and the house owner would not let us leave, there was only one door to the house so it was easy for him to stand in front of the door with a couple of buddies to block people from leaving, after probably like 3/4 hours of the cops pounding at the door they finally let the cops in and they breathalyzed us all and I blew a .010 and was ticketed with an mip while other people who attended the party blew higher than me and they did not get a ticket. There was also a lot of alcohol laying around at the party. By the time I go to court to resolve this issue I will already be 21, was wondering if I would have the possibility of getting this dropped?
