How can VA ASAP have a hold on my Driver License if the judge said my D.U.I. case is finished???
I had 2 D.U.I.'s (one 2010 & one 2011) in VA and took ASAP, and got a letter I successfully completed the program and classes and the case was closed. Knowing I had to report to court because of a 6 month restriction and ignition interlock was installed in my car. So when I went to court ASAP did not send any paperwork saying my case was closed, so I took my paperwork in and got my interlock removed with the judge knowing I had one violation. Now I moved to TN and tried to get a DL here their telling me I have a hold and have to clear it up in VA. If the judge over says ASAP and says I completed everything and my case is closed how can ASAP still have a hold on my DL if my case is closed there also. I also went to court 3 times and had to do everything myself because ASAP would not.
The fact that the criminal case is closed does not mean that all suspensions are over. You need to contact the VA...
Is intercourse with an intoxicated person under 21 rape?
I was 20 at the time of the incident, and the man was 4 years my elder. He got me into a 21+ bar and bought me numerous liquor drinks & shots. We had sex, though I was blacked out and only remembered pieces of the incident afterward. I became pregnant and only then did I figure out exactly what had happened that night after being told the exact events by the assailant. I received an abortion the following month. I never filed a legal complaint as I did not identify as a rape victim and because I stupidly trusted it was not a malicious crime. Only now, I suffer terrible anxiety because of the abortion and out of fear the assailant will tell friends and family about it. Also he was on felony probation at the time for drug related crimes.
Your age wouldn't be the deciding factor as to whether or not it was rape. Based on the facts as you tell them, it...
Is there anything that can be done about my underage consumption charge?
I was arrested with the charge of underage consumption . I was at a party where a person was arrested outside ( everyone else was inside besides home owners who were 21 ) who was under 21 ( above 18 ) for being around alcohol . The cops then arrested the house owners for contributing to minors ( which no one was , b / c we are all above 18 ) and that gave them " probable cause " to enter the premises . They arrested all the minors inside myself being one of them . I was thrown on the ground , sustained minor injuries ( bleeding from my shoulder and bruising on my back ) , was never read my rights , or Breathalyzer / sobriety tested . Simply taken to jail and charged . Is there anything I can do ?
Get an attorney. Sounds like the charge could be dismissed with experienced counsel or at the worst, you'd get...
I need to produce a Motion For Dismissal of DUI in Tennessee. Is there a of such a motion that I can use.?
I was arrested for suspected DUI. I have both a passenger witness and I believe their car tape that will substantiate I was not DUI. I need a "model" so I can produce a motion for dui dismissal. This is my 1st time before the judge and no plea has been entered yet. I will be representing myself as I am a 100% disabled veteran without adequate resources immediately at hand.
You should not represent yourself unless its an absolute necessity. You can get a public defender if you qualify for...

What penalties am I looking at for my DUI?
I got pulled over a few months ago and got arrested for a DUI and driving on revoked. I had recently taken xanax. The officer said I swerved, which I did. But I believe I swerved because I wasn't looking at the road at the time. I was driving by my sisters work to see if she was there so I could see her for a bit. Anyhow, the officer gave me a field sobriety test and I failed. At the time the pills had not taken effect yet, but I agreed to a blood test. why I don't know, I was under pressure and was kind of scared so I cooperated the best I could. My sentencing is tomorrow, what kind of penalties am I looking at? I had taken 4 xanax bars at the time if that helps
