In Connecticut---DWI charge in 1994, applied for and completed ACCEl REHAB program. Erased from arrest record?
I believe at that time upon completion of program that the charges were supposed to be dismissed. I know that Motor Vehicle records were. Aren't the arrest record supposed to be erased also upon a dismissal? Been 20 years
In 1994 one accused of DUI could still use the accelerated rehabilitation program (AR) to earn a dismissal of the DUI...
I am in the process of applying for UK Visa and there is an entry that asks me to check Yes / No. The Question is: Do you have any criminal convictions in any country (including spent / unspent convictions and traffic offenses)? I am not sure if it is an Yes / No. I am applying for a business tourist visa.
Upon successful completion of the Alcohol Education Program the charges against you were dismissed. So as to that...
Hit by intoxicated driver- car damage, ER bill, & items in car broke. Didn't call police - bad karma. How should I proceed?
Driving on RT2 a guy rear ended my family- We got out & spoke. Initially he said I could call the police; his tone changed when I said he reeked of alcohol - he promised to cover all damages. We exchanged info & followed him to his home - he's a CEO. Predicament is - last night my back started killing me. I went to ER - xrays were negative but doc said I have strained ligs/muscles & must get MRI/rehab. Since I'm moving - boxes in SUV were crushed and stuff flew everywhere. My printer broke, my laptop doesn't work, and my ipad even cracked - I have pics. I'm not sue happy & believe in karma - that's why I didn't call the cops. Is it ok to purpose covering all damages w/proper documentation via email? He prob thinks only car damage... How do I approach in an ethical manner and not suffer $?
You can try to have him take care of the property damages now. However, you shouldn't try to settle the injury part...
I got a DUI in Tennessee. I live in Connecticut. Will Tennessee report my DUI to Connecticut? How will I know if my license is suspended or not?
This is not an easy question to answer it will take some research you need to retain counsel to find out.
I had a dui/suspended license arrest back in 2011, I went to court & the judge said that since it was my very first arrest, all I would have to do is stay out of trouble for 12mths & restore my license & my case would be naullied. It's been over 3yrs & today when my car broke down in Glastonbury....I get arrested for an outstanding warrant. But over 1month ago..I got pulled over for texting & driving by east hartford traffic cop & he did not mention nothing about a warrant at all. He ran my license & gave me my ticket...nothing else. If I get my paper work proving that my case was settled & I appeared in court for my dui & no other cases occurred can I sue? And which town should I sue?
You need to contact an experienced civil litigation/ civil rights lawyer in your area.
I know someone who is a single father, mother has passed. He is facing his 2nd DUI in 7 years. Will he go to jail?
this accident he was in was in Feb 2014. all the blood work has come back so we are assuming a warrant will be issues soon..?
Without more details, it would be impossible to say for sure, but likely there will be some jail time if convicted....
First-offense DUI after car crash, rolling papers may have been in car, can this be used against me?
I was recently arrested for a DUI after crashing my car into a snow bank. This is my first offense, and it was simply a result of foolishly not eating at all before, during, or after drinking. Thankfully no other person or property was damaged except my car. However, I'm worried that there may have been rolling papers in my car at the time of my arrest. As far as I know, there were no illegal substances in the car, but I'm worried that the presence of rolling papers might imply I was under the influence of drugs, which I was not. Is it possible that the presence of rolling papers could be used against me, even without the presence of illegal substances? How can I prove that I wasn't under the influence of drugs in the event that illegal substances were in my car without my knowledge?
Unless the rolling papers are specifically mentioned in your police report I would not think that they would become an...
