can i get in trouble for lending a drunk person my car
It depends on your state laws. Many states have laws making it a criminal offense to allow an intoxicated person to...
First and last DUI. I don't drink anymore. Did all my probation stuff, pass every urine screening. Passed the first one that morning, started the car. Deiced the windshield using a spray which got into my mouth. Started to drive and rolling retest beeped a fail on me. But didn't honk horn or flash lights. Then I passed not a minute later. Compliance officer isn't worried but I am.
I don't think so. The retest was negative. I think you're fine.
I received a DWI in NM in 2009. I never attended the MVD hearing and my license got revoked. In 2013 my DWI case got dismissed after I completed everything in the courts. From Aug. 2012-September 2013 I completed an interlock. MVD was never notified of my interlock and I never obtained an interlock license. I have all paperwork to prove I had the interlock and the dismissed case. I never knew how the process worked and was never informed on how to take care of it through the MVD. Would I be able to get my license back by myself with all my paperwork, or do I hire a lawyer to handle this for me? I'm sure there has to be a way to get it back through all proof I have without doing the interlock again because it just isn't right for them to do this regardless of what I've taken care of.
I am not licensed in New Mexico (I am licensed in California), but why don't you go to the MVD with all your paperwork...

They can drug test you anytime you are on probation; supervised or unsupervised. And for some probation officers, it's...
I applied for CA medical license. I have full medical license in NM. I'm doing my fellowship in UNM. My PD put me on probation for professionalism( communication, tardy ) but the probation has been revoked by our GME. When my program director sent the form to the medical board, she put that I would be put on probation. She also mentioned that I was on performance improvement plan before which I successfully completed. My relation with my PD is not good, I do not want to request her to inform the CA board that my probation has been revoked as she can still put even more dirty things though it has been revoked. Our GME informed NM medical board that I am no more on probation but they would not inform CA medical board. n this situation what should I do as I think probation may affect my licen
I don't know what all the abbreviations are but this is not a DUI question. Perhaps an employment question?

We are assigned a US Attorney(federal land accident). The attorney is free of charge, but we are afraid the attorney will not be able to help like a private attorney. The federal criminal investigator already collected evidence, interviewed witnesses, family members and visited him in the hospital 2 times. He has not been charged, but he will be taken into custody as soon as he is medically discharged. He does not have any prior records, he only has a medical record showing multiple admits for mental instability (depression,suicidal ideation,long chronic medical history). After sentencing, if found guilty. Can we appeal the case? What are the options?
You need to speak to your lawyer about these issues. Even more importantly, you should not place any further posts on...
