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,...
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.
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...

I'm assuming you are referring to Standard Field Sobriety Tests. Not all of them are videotaped. If it occurred in...
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 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....
My fiance is going in for a no go court trial, charged with a misdemeanor DUI, 3rd but the previous 2 are not being allowed into this case. He has been appointed 2 different public defenders and both have quit or have had other obligations come up. He filled out a request form but was denied because he makes too much, not alot too much but too much for the courts to say yes. The prosecutors at the last hearing offered 45 days in jail, 2 years probation and 3k restitution. We cannot take that plea, we have a 1 year old daughter and 2 children from a previous relationship. We have been trying to find an affordable attourney but no luck. If he goes in friday with no lawyer. what can the judge do? Will he give him a little bit more time to find counsel if he explains the situation?
It depends on what stage the case is in and the case's age. If court on Friday is your husband's second appearance (e.g....
