I got an DUI in Lawrence KS on Saturday January 24th and I failed the field sobriety tests as well as the breathe test. I blew a .194 so my punishments are harsher. I have been researching my different options for the state of Kansas, and an officer recommended I try to get on diversion. I am wondering if that is always an option that is granted for a first time offender, or if there's a process just to have that option. Also, I'm wondering if I do indeed get on diversion, will my drivers license still be suspended for the 1 year? What typically happens in cases like mine?
Diversion is not always granted. The discretion lies with the prosecutor. It may or may not be difficult to convince...
If I have a interlock system in my car, can I drive a parents car instead of my own?
I am not licensed to practice law in Kansas, but I would very strongly believe the answer is no. The interlock...
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,...
My boyfriend got a diversion program for DUI and he has a court date next week but he hasnt completed it..and 2 weeks ago he got another DUI in another county, they took him into custody and let him go that same day and now he has another scheduled DUI court date for this one on December 16th..what will happen to him? Will he go to jail when he goes to this last date? Or if he completes or not finishes his diversion will this affect his current charge?
The new case will almost certainly result in a revocation motion on the diversion. He is looking at a second time dui...
Moved to Kansas with judge ordered addendum that stated I will be followed by New Mexico DWI program. When I called to set it up they denied me due to being g out of state. Kansas wouldn't except me because my license and state of DWI was in NM. What to do?

I got a DUI in August, I was sentenced earlier this month. My DL status still shows active on the check online and by ordering a copy. Today it still shows vaild but under the CDL parts shows a suspension for a year. I don't have a CDL. SHould i let them know about it? or keep my mouth shut and be thankful I they made an error? I had a cop buddy run my tag and he said it shows I'm vaild. I also called the DMV and she said well it shows a suspension but your license is vaild, thats weird, call the docking dept and let them know. Why would I want to let them know they messed up?
Good morning. Have you EVER had a CDL from any state? If so, and you gave up the CDL, there may be an old database that...
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.
