Police came to house after a reported hit and run. I was drinking but parked my car unaware I hit a vehicle on the way home. Police find me asleep in the backseat. I was still drunk at the time even after hours had past. They instruct me to take a balance test and I failed, then I was taken to the station to get blood drawn. My charges were hit and run, and violating my permit because I was 17. So my charges never indicated I was drinking and driving BUT...the DMV suspended my license or chances of me getting my license I really don't know because the department I need to contact doesn't answer. But the court said the DMV suspended my license for an alcohol related issue. Will this stay on my record with the DMV and/or insurance? Even if it happened when I was 17?
A conviction for DUI is worth two points on your license. Hit and run is also worth two points. You ought to sit down...
Moved out of state and FTA was issued. Recently went to renew California license and a hold from NC for FTA not DWI came up. This has been confirmed by NC Wake Co DMV. What are the chances of being convicted 20 years after being charged with the DWI? Trying to decide best way to resolve this very poor judgement call on my part. Thank you in advance. P

I got a DUI and took a blood test instead of using a breathalyzer. I'm wondering if my results come back high, would it even be useful to have a lawyer. I am told that lawyer can't do much in terms of lowering class time and can only lower "jail" time. My friend's BAC was .25 and she was sentenced to 9 months class time and only five hours community service on top of the night she did in jail. If I have no hope of lowering my class time and might only be sentenced to a 5 hours service, what is the benefit of a lawyer? I am a first time offender in a fairly lenient city. Also, if I want to have my blood retested, do I have to have a lawyer in order to do that or can I make the request on my own? I know that I will not get the BAC results until after my arraignment date.
The same benefits if your BAC is not high. Review your case in great detail to find a jury issue so that the DA will buckle.
This is the first and only offense I have ever had. No one was hurt and there were no accidents resulting from this. I am off probation. Am trying to find out if this is a good option for me as I need to travel to Canada periodically to visit family. If this is expunged, would it clear me for entry into Canada? This may be better route in lieu of the TRP and Criminal Rehab process required for future visits to Canada. Thank you.
How long have you been off probation? Have you had any other convictions since then? You can contact the U.S....
Because this was my second DUI, my license was revoked and I have to appeal to get privileges back in Michigan. Is there a period of time it drops off and I can apply again? Or, because I now live in San Francisco and it was 9 years ago, can I simply take the California Driver's test and get a CA driver's license?
Go to the CA DMV and apply for a license. See what happens. Worst case, you will be required to have your license...
It's been 7 years now, and I'm worried if I come back they are going to try the case and give me the max amount of time if not more??? Suggestions anyone??? I didnt even move to CA until 5 years ago. Still, I'm worried about what I'm facing , if I come back. I know there was a warrant issued at first, but wasn't sure if it would still be active???
This question makes no sense. Are you in CA or NC? Why do you think this in civil court and not criminal? You would be...
It was considered my 3rd DUI. 2 previous DUI's were a few weeks shy of 10 years past. Plead guilty and given 2.5 years. Panicked and didn't return for incarceration. Lost a great opportunity/job because of my blemished past. Can't even get authorized to ride a moped to get access to other jobs further away. Is there any hope for me?
