Can a pending PDC charge in one state affect the trial/sentencing or lead to a probation violation for a DWI conviction in VA?
I was charged with Public Disorderly Conduct in Oct '10 in S. Carolina while on vacation. I have an attorney and am fighting it. In the meantime I was charged with a DWI 1st Offense, BAC >.20% in Virginia (where I live) in Feb '11. I haven't heard yet from my attorney in SC about the PDC charge. My court date for the DWI in Virginia is in April and it looks like I will probably be facing a 1-yr suspended or restricted license along with 180 days in jail with 170 suspended, amounting to 10 days in jail. Since I will be convicted for my DWI in VA prior to any sentencing for the PDC in SC, could a PDC conviction in SC affect anything with my DWI case in VA? Will I be violating probation for my DWI conviction in VA if I'm later convicted of PDC in SC, even though the PDC charge came 1st?
The short answer is yes, a subsequent conviction on the South Carolina case could be deemed a probation violation on...
I thought that my hearings were scheduled for May 19th but after reviewing the court's docket, my cases were heard on Wedneday the 5th. What do I do? I have two small children and can't go to jail. This was an error on my part as one of the summons had a court date of May 19th and I assumed that they would all be heard on this day.
The laws on a situation like this have some small variance from state to state, but in general, missing a court date...
I consulted with a Immigration attorney about applying for my Citizenship with DWI record in 2006. He advised that I will still need to tell the immigration that I was arrested for DWI. If I hire him, i will need to pay him. My question is, can I still apply for US Citizenship without an attorney but still report that I was arrest for DUI so I can save some attorney's fees. Your answer will be appreciated. Thank you!
I do not do immigration law ,however, my opinion is that the dui will have little to no effect based on the case of...
I'm from VA and got this ticket in CA while visiting. My BAC was .06%. I realize I have lost the right to license in CA for 1 year and have to have the right reinstated in 1 year. I don't ever plan to obtain a license in CA but will do what I have to do. It is an infraction but I have a mandatory appearance in a couple weeks. Obviously I don't plan on flying to CA to appear andpay the fine. I keep getting the run around from lawyers in the easiest way to accept responsibility, have a lawyer appear in court and pay the fine. HELP.
I recommend that you contact this fellow for advice who used to practice law in Virginia but now has his practice out...
I forgot to surrender my plates after a DUI conviction. How will this affect me when I attempt to get my license back?
My driver's license was revoked for 1 year due to a DUI conviction. I forgot to surrender my plates. I deactivated them after I realized this (about five months later). During this time, I allowed my insurance coverage to expire as well as my tags. There was some insurance coverage lapse between the time my insurance coverage expired and when my tags expired. I've only got one month left until I get my license back and I haven't heard anything from the DMV about it. Will any of this come back to bite me when I attempt to reinstate my license? If so, how?
License? Probably not. If you applied for a restricted license but never picked it up, you may silk have to have an...

Hi I'm from sweden and I lived in USA for 7 months on a J-1 visa. While I was there something terrible happended to me that made me drive while I was drunk. After this I just wanted to go home, and the attorney told me I could, the only problem was that it would be hard for me to get into USA again. So I never showed up at the court date since he said it was okay. I didn't get any problem in Sweden and I still have my driving licence and I have been traviling to italy once. Now I am going to Australia because of work and I am wondering if this is gonna show up in Australia when they scan my passport or something? I am really worried.. Thank you.
That's pretty unlikely since Australia is a sovereign country and I wouldn't suspect a red notice being issued for a...
