Paul Marshal Curry, 57, is charged with murder with special circumstances for financial gain and by poisoning, as well as insurance fraud, in the June 9, 1994, death of his wife, Linda.

    Wednesday Sep 10 | via New Jersey Herald 

    A nuclear engineer who was first questioned two decades ago after the suspicious death of his new wife is on trial in Southern California on charges of murder and insurance fraud in what prosecutors say is a poisoning case. Authorities didn't have enough evidence to charge Paul Curry in 1994, but a refreshed investigation in 2007 yielded a new scientific report that Orange County prosecutors say shows he gave his wife, 50-year-old Linda Curry, a fatal dose of nicotine, the Orange County Register reported Wednesday .

the police told my daughter she would be cherged with DUI. But she was not in the car when it happen and had not driven for 3 hours when they give her a test. she has recived court date from state but they keep setting the date back. How long do they have before she can fight it in court. the crimial part of dui has never been charged yet. this is the fine and licinece hearing
The best rationale way to place that unpleasant ordeal behind you is to retain a criminal defense attorney to represent...
I live in CA and was on a work related trip in KS. I was pulled over and arrested for DUI in KS. This is the first offense in any state. I was unable to make the hearing because I had to work, and am the sole income provider for my family and now there is an arrest warrant in KS for me. I live 1300 miles away and driving is my only option since I can not afford to fly (the company I work paid for the flight during the work related trip) back into KS. I have someone that can drive me out there, but it is a 2 day trip one way. If I get back to KS will they throw me in Jail? if not then can I handle my fines and anything else in a day?
If there is a warrant for your arrest in Kansas then they will arrest you and you will have to post bond. However,...

No, but the consequences are often similar.
I fulfilled all but one obligation assigned by the judge upon my DUI sentencing. I have 20 treatment "classes" to attend and have only been to 4 so far. I'm still going and progressing very well. Fact is i wouldnt have been able to complete 20 classes in 3 months anyhow since they are once a week so i have to reappear next Friday. Unfortunately, being truthful during the evaluation has not worked in my favor since the judge seems to be turning this into more of a marijuana issue than a DUI issue. What are the chances he will give me a UA when I go back to court and what happens if i fail? Before joining the Army 12 years ago it took 86 days to clear from my system and i didnt cheat even once. Will i immediately go to jail? Will he let me continue treatment? Please help
Every judge is different. In order to get the best educated best possible, you should contact a criminal defense...

You're in considerable amount of trouble. Testing dirty on a drug/alcohol test never works out well. Consequences are...
I am aware that this remains on my arrest record. I am also aware that sometimes Canada might see the criminal charges but might not have the updated information that the charges have been dismissed (as per completion of diversion period). I wanted to know if it was safe to make my travel plans. If I carry information regarding my arrest and case, and/or will it be a problem at all? If it shows I was arrested and that the charges were dismissed (not convicted) will they deny me entry anyway? Thanks
Call the Canadian consulate and ask. I suspect it will be no problem as there are no pending charges and no warrant...

Contact a criminal defense attorney. You should know your legal rights. Good luck.
