While at Penn State an officer entered my apartment and shut off my stereo. Not knowing he was an officer, I asked if I could help him. He turned on me quickly and we pushed each other. In the end, he handcuffed me and I was arrested for assault, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct. No one who witnessed it can believe it. However, I have been dismissed from Penn and have to return home to Maryland yet want to complete this program.
This sounds like a terrible situation for you. Unfortunately, your question is missing some essential details for a...
Two DUIs back-to-back tried, got PBJ for them 2 yrs ago + alcohol program. I got arrested for another DUI this year which also includes reckless/negligent driving, DWI, speeding over the limit. My question is if I am convicted, will this current DUI count as my 3rd offense or 2nd offense? Will I also have to serve jail time? My license is already suspended.
You need to consult with an attorney to advise you and help you through this process. I have had success with clients...
I got a dui in montegoremy county md. The arresting officer took my license at the time and I requested a hearing. It's coming up in November but I have no idea what to bring with me or what to expect. This is my first time having any type violation with my license. I couldn't afford the lawyers I spoke with about my dui case so I don't think I'll be able to afford one for my Mva hearing. However, I really want to be prepared to put my best foot forward because my job requires I drive to different locations through out the week, I have a young child I take to daycare plus extracurricular activities, and I go to alcohol treatment classes for my dui. So if I have to represent myself, what are some things that will help me to at least get a restriction on my license rather then a suspension?
You "spoke to"... Did you MEET with anyone? I am assuming not. You have to be willing to undertake some effort to...
Last night I was arrested for a DUI (.09) after going to a show in Gaithersburg, MD. Before the night was over, I gave my friend the car keys; I opted to sleep it off. Additionally, I wanted to protect myself further by disconnecting my battery, which I did. Do you feel there is any chance I could get this dismissed? Or should I take a shot at trial? Please let me know your thoughts, as I am absolutely terrified! Thank you!

I got a DUI and my license was suspended in West Virginia and in order to get my license back here, in Maryland, it needs to be reinstated in WV. I was told that if I wanted to get around putting an Interlock device in my car, I could request "incapable status". As someone who lives out of state, I am unfamiliar with the procedure and if possible I would like input as far as what should go in the letter to request incapable status. I need to be able to drive to get to and from work and I would definitely not be able to afford an Interlock device. I've attended drug and alcohol classes since the DUI and I obviously do not plan on drinking and driving ever again.
You need to consult and meet with an experienced DUI defense attorney in WV. They would be able to file the necessary...
I am wondering because i just graduated college and am applying to jobs
Most likely it is either a juvenile offense (which is a misdemeanor) if it was under 18, or a "plain," adult...
Hello, thank you very much for taking the time to assist me with my situation. Last night, I was arrested for DUI, but did NOT drink (nor have I ever taken a sip of alcohol or beer). I am suffering from a severe case of Anorexia Nervosa which results in me having frequent dizzy spells, so much so to the point where I stumble and sway at times. It often happens at night when my body is exhausted and tired from the day's work. I was leaving a friend's apartment and walking to my vehicle which was parked on the street. My assumption is that the officer saw me stumble to my vehicle, but I have medical documentation proving my condition. I refused to any and all tests he attempted to perform on me, including the breath test. Do you feel I will be able to get the charge dismissed?
Your case probably won't just be thrown out. You may have to have a trial. There are many issues in this. Consult a...
