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...
Is possible to be convicted of a DUI and be unaware of it?
Today I received a letter from the Dept of Homeland Security that my license had be revoked due to a DUI conviction in Feb of 2012 and that I could reapply for my license on April 17, 2013. I have never been arrested for a DUI or ticketed for the same. I have retained insurance, renewed my registration and license and obtained a professional healthcare license, and passed background checks for work in a ER past that date. I was just accepted to medical school starting in August and am afraid my status with them will be negatively affected by this. Can I be convicted with a DUI without ever being stopped for an alcohol related issue or ever receiving notification of said offense?
No. This sounds like a mistake. You should call the phone number listed on the letter you received and explain you...
Possible DUI but no indication of blood testing from medical records, case to be presented to grand jury
I had a vehicle accident with property damage. There was a beer can in the vehicle at the time of the accident and a loaded gun (I have a carry permit). I was flown to a trauma center. No records from the hospital show any BAC testing. I have not been arrested, and the officer who worked the accident is presenting this to a grand jury. My friends say that I was sober when I left their home just 20 minutes before the accident. I do have a history of passing out, but this has not ever been investigated medically. 1.) Is it typical for BAC blood testing to occur without it showing up on a patient's medical records? Also, 2.) If there is sufficient evidence of DUI, why hasn't the officer just arrested me instead of going to the grand jury?
The reason why there have been no charges is the state is gathering evidence, and presenting it to the grand jury. The...
