Family member of Hispanic origin, cited for DUI - true enough, however, when in custody in the police cruiser, the officers areon recorded videocam making guesse about his ethniciy, "mahaji ?, (not sure of the term but refers to midestern radicals, a couple of other ethnicities almost in a joking manner of speaking, until one officer says, well he sure ain't caucasian! I have heard of other case being thrown out due to "racial profiling". And in the next 30 seconds they are discussing what all they could charge him with. Does this fit racial profiling? And is there laws in WV against that? How would you suggest handling this specific

I was convicted of my first DUI two years ago in which I blew the minimum limit .097. I attended the 6 week drug and alcohol class a year ago. I did not have the interlock system installed in my car. Is this the reason for which I am being summoned? Because I was under the impression that I did not have to have the interlock given the circumstances of the situation.
I got charged with first offense DUI September 2011. The judge did not accept a plea upon me voluntarily entering the interlock program. In March of 2012, i was caught driving with expired registration and charged with my second DUI because of my revoked status. DMV sent me no notification of my license being suspended or my registration needed renewed. The court of the Second DUI now has jurisdiction over everything, but they have yet to set a date for me to appear. After march, can i request for the case to be dismissed, take my classes, pay my fines and get the charges dropped and my license back?

Was arrested for DUI in May of 2010. The criminal case was dismissed for lack of evidence and the officer never showed. My first dmv hearing was in dec. of 2010. In which the officer didn't show. The second scheduled hearing was scheduled in the spring of 2011 and continued to another date. Finally had the second hearing a year later in the spring of 2012. That summer I got a DUI in Ohio. Once they turned it into the DMV in January of 2013, then they issued a year long suspension starting in march. The DMV is saying this is my second even though there was no decision on the first. With no sign of a third hearing in sight to fight the first alleged DUI arrest. Help.
The only advice I can give you is to hire an attorney. Good luck.
