Drug testing costs in diversion program
i am currently in a diversion program for a first time DUI charge in Johnson county , ks. During my first meeting with my diversion officer, they asked me to have a drug test done for 25 bucks at a lab corp. I understand they will ask me to have these tests done at times throughout the 1 year diversion. I am wondering how often on average do they ask to do it? I figure worse case would be if they asked at every single monthly meeting, which would be 12 tests max or 300 bucks for the year. Could it possibly be more than this? Less? I know everyone is different, just curious what a typical experience is like for someone. I have been in the program for a couple months, already have all my classes done, so these drug tests would be my only remaining costs.
The best defense is to always be clean and sober then you don't have to worry especially if they call you in for an...
I received a DUI Dec. 23, 2014 in Overland Park, KS 66212. My court date is Jan. 13, 2015 in Overland Park Municipal Court. I
I called the court and they told me the first appearance would be for instructions and decision making. I did not think I needed a lawyer for this appearance but now I am really scared. Details: My husband recently died and I have been overwhelmed with income loss and grief. I was home that night and depressed. So, I decided to meet friends for a beer and their support which was only a block from my house. When I returned home and turned into my driveway I hit a fire hydrant. A fellow citizen called the police whom arrived before I had gotten out of my car in the driveway He arrested me and took me to the station. I didn't realize I had hit anything as there was no noise and my car was not damaged. This is my first offense. Is it to late to receive help?
Absolutely not! Your case hasn't really begun and you have plenty of time to hire an attorney. If you cannot afford one,...
In Johnson County Kansas; on regular (not ISP) probation for 3rd DUI how often do PO's issue the 5 day alcohol tests?
like I said; regular probation, not ISP. How often do PO's issue the 5 day alcohol tests? What are the laws regarding those 5 day tests?
No clue what you're talking about. I haven't had any clients have that.
What if I don 't know if the test was videoed? What if I agreed to take test but am naturally unbalanced?
Please see details on previous page
I'm assuming you are referring to Standard Field Sobriety Tests. Not all of them are videotaped. If it occurred in...
After 2 dwi convictions in Missouri is there any way to drive legally in Kansas before the 5 year revocation is over?
Is there any way I could drive a moped or electric/gas assist bicycle?
A Kansas attorney may be able to tell you the answer. It would seem you'd first want to make sure that the statute...
Can Missouri suspend my Kansas license?
I was being charged with a DUI in missouri but the case got dismissed for lack of evidence. Immediately I got a letter from Missouri saying I needed an ignition interlock on my vehicle to keep driving which I installed on my vehicle before the court appearance. When the case was dismissed the judge wrote in the paperwork that I can remove the interlock device. Now the state of Missouri tells me I need to keep the interlock device and do a minimum of 10 hours at a drug and alcohol program and almost a $300 reinstatement fee. Do I need to follow these Missouri demands even though the case was dismissed and I have a Kansas license?
Yes and NO. Realistic what will happen is Missouri suspend our right to drive in Missouri and Kansas will see that...
I have a DUI in KS and KS requires me to have an interlock installed. But I have a valid license in MO. Do I have to get it?
I got a DUI in KS back in October of 2013. My license was suspended for a month in KS, and has since been reinstated. However KS wants me to get an interlock installed. Do I have to get it installed? Since I've lived in MO all my life, and my license in MO is valid. I'm also on diversion for it as well but the interlock doesn't violate my diversion. But my license isn't suspended in KS anymore nor in MO. So do I have to get the interlock if I live in MO and don't plan to go to KS?
I would certainly recommend having one if you are driving in KS! Ask your MO DMV. I suspect you do not, but do not know....
