So my friend tells me he is going to court for not paying his fine for probation tomorrow. what is the law in mass for this?
basically what im trying to get at will the judge sentence him for jail time if he doesnt have the 900 tomorrow morning or will they set him up with a payplan?
Courts will work out payment plans. If your friend does not follow thru, jail is a possibility.
MA- if I was originally charged with a 1st offense oui then it was dismissed and i was charged with an amended charge of 2nd offense OUI . ive never had a OUI ever. Can the 1st offense OUI be reinstated if the 2nd OUI is dropped?
Apparently, someone with your name, social security number or birthdate (or combo) has been charged with an OUI before....

In terms of car insurance, is there a difference between a CWOF and a guilty DUI? Should i wait until its dismissed to apply?
I read that in mass, even a CWOF adds 5 points to your record (major violation). Im buying a used car and need to update my policy where they will most likely see my CWOF. IF i wait till it is dismissed to renew my policy will they see it then?
Yes, they will see it when your policy is up for renewal. A CWOF and a Guilty are both 5 points and insurance companies...

I was convicted of DUI in FL on a TN license and ordered to get an IID through FL but I dont own a vehicle...?
I was convicted of a DUI in the state of FL in Dec 2009, I never got a hardship license because I had been driving on a TN license and TN wouldnt give me a clearance to get a hardship in FL. And I have not owned a vehicle since my conviction so I wouldnt have a vehicle install an IID in. My question is whether or not FL is going to reinstate my license I have done all required reinstatement things for both TN and FL and just waiting for them to go through. The other part of this is that I am living in MA and wont ever be going back to FL to get a license so will I be able to apply for a new license in MA if TN and FL do clear my record?? Also was told that in FL if you dont have a vehicle in your name for 2 years after your conviction the IID requirment expires is this true?
I am a Massachusetts lawyer and do not know the answer to your very last question regarding the IID requirement in...
In April 2012 I was involved In a small fender bender. An SUV swerved into my lane, without signaling, trying to get around a stopped vehicle turning left. Because of this I struck the rear of his vehicle at a low rate of speed. There was NO damage to the other SUV and minimal damage to my sedan (grille damage estimated at $275) we decided not to pursue. 6 months later I receive notice the other driver is going after my insurance company. I am found at fault and the other driver is paid out $21,000 for a whiplash claim (14 k medical 7 k payout) he did not claim any property damage. I have picture of both vehicles on the day of the accident. And need to gather more evidence to help my appeal. Any suggestions?
What is your basis for an appeal? Your insurance company does not have any motivation to pay more on a claim then they...
