I flipped my car on 2/06/12. Single car accident, no injuries. Woke up in the hospital & released. Found out in May I had a warrant for DUI from that accident. I turned myself in on 5/19 and was released. The DMV didn't suspend my license after either. I went to court on 5/30, they offered an alcohol program pending an evaluation & paying an application fee by my next court date on 7/25. I got evaluated on 6/19 and was accepted. Then on 6/22, I crashed my new car & was arrested for DUI. I was put in jail for 8 days then released on bond. My PD said to "play dumb" on 7/25 and see if my application is rejected because of this new DUI. If it does, then on 7/27 he will combine the two DUIs cases into a "Double First Offense". Can someone explain what that entails please? or have any advice?
Although I do know how you qualified for a public defender since there is no risk of incarceration, you should ask them.
I flipped my car over last February. No other parties involved. I blacked out at home from mixing xanax & alcohol. I don't remember anything about the accident or events leading up to it. I came to in the hospital & thats how I found out. They released me once my BCA dropped. I spoke to the cop a few days later in order to get a police report # for my insurance and he never mentioned DUI charges being brought up against me. Since then my insurance paid off my other car and I bought a new one without any problems. My mom got pulled over while driving my car last night and the cop told her that I have a warrant out for my arrest for DUI charges from the town's PD the accident took place in. How can I have a warrant out and NOT know? I don't know what to do at this point.
Forgive me for stating the obvious but you need an attorney right away. There are many excellent DWI attorneys on this...
I bought a new car last year and CT DMV wouldn't let me transfer my license because it was suspended for an unpaid ticket. Obviously needed registration & insurance so they gave me a state ID in order to do that. My license was restored then I didn't transfer it. Didn't see a reason to other than insurance purposes & I hate the DMV. Now I have a pending DUI in CT with the APS suspension in effect for 120 days. If that's the case, if I'm convicted lets say a month AFTER the APS suspension is over ... Can I transfer my NY license over to CT in that time frame without an issue? On the other hand, if I'm unable to transfer it & NY DMV finds out of the conviction then how will my driving privileges be affected in CT? Will this effect my ability for a work permit? Buying insurance?
Way too complicated for an online answer. You need to talk to your own attorney.

I was sent to jail on bond and then i had to complete a works program. community service is almost done and im in the drug classes now. I got a DUI no one got hurt and no one else was involved except my passengers. Do you think the prosecutor would re-open my case due to misdemeanor charges that didn't involve drugs or just let it go through as a normal DUI case.
it is possible that these charges could be re-opened as I would think that one of the conditions for your enrollment in...
My last lawyer because i fired him now.
Has not communicate to me. I called him via cell , office, and his assistant who also never gets back or picks up.
I asked him to get a new court date a month ago and he continued to ignore calls and then lied and said he asked for new date and I did not need to show for court , but lucky I checked and it was still set for date I would not shown up for.
He admitted prosecutor did not like him so I would have to go to trail do to that.
Do to this lawyer I may have to go to trail because of the prosecutor in the case is mad. I fired him and hired a new lawyer but what should I do. I mean he has taken my money a screwed me.

However I am being asked to schedule a hearing w/DMV on my own and also to get the police report for review so that it can be determined by the attorney if it is worthwhile to go for the hearing. I don't know where and how to obtain the report. Is this normal for attorney's to request a client to do?
Depends. If he is giving you the chance to do it to save yourself money than that is fine, but he should also offer to...
