Surry Law

DUI in 2012 in Missouri, received 2yr probation. Missouri violated me for minor traffic infraction. Paid fine. Yesterday, Missouri sends me a notice of 30 day driver's license suspension - 3 years after offense. Is Virginia going to suspend my license for a year?! For out-of-state DUIs you have the right to petition the court. I'm pretty sure I would be eligible for restricted but looking for guidance. Also I have completed intensive outpatient treatment and been sober for years now.
All states are supposed to honor each other's suspensions, so Virginia is supposed to suspend you. You may ask for a...
I have a Florida Drivers license and I was arrested for DUI in Florida. I received a hardship license to travel to and from work. My work requires me to travel frequently between Virginia and Florida. Will my hardship license be recognized by Virginia?
Does the license say you can drive out of Florida? I am not aware of any authority for Florida to grant you permission...
Would it be considered 6 months after installation date or after 6 appointments? I have my 6th check in at the interlock facility next week. No failed tests, VASAP classes complete, full compliance. I'm looking to petition for the removal of the device and I'm just trying to figure out the exact time I can do that. Thanks. This is a 1st DWI and no other offenses/arrests on my record.
Most judges read that law as 6 months from the date of the installation. So, use that date. Good luck.
I've had something that's been bothering me for a while. To make a long story short, I went out with a friend for karaoke, met a European guy who seemed very nice and kept buying me drinks. When my coworker left, he offered to drive me. Since he rode with friends, I let him take my car. I wasn't aware of how drunk he may have been, and he not only wrecked my car, but he left me at the scene and told me not to say anything because of something about being deported. I wasn't sure what he meant or what was going on, so I stayed and ended up getting charged and convicted of the 1st DUI because I was at the scene, and the car was registered to me. I've had a perfectly clean record. I never said I was driving, but my mistake according to the judge is saying I didn't drive. What do I do?
If it has been more than ten days since the general district Court trial, you learn the lesson to not take...
My husband was arrested for DUI, went to trial, paid all fines. He completed the sentencing required. My question is he has a out of state license (he is in the military). He has all documentation that was needed to have his restricted license. We received a letter in the mail saying that he is not licensed and cannot drive. He received a restricted license from the judge. He paid the reinstatement fee of $200 at the DMV for his out of state license.
You question hinges on what state is telling him he is licensed and can not drive. If it is his home state, then he...
My friend is on probation for a domestic offense and she just got a DUI. What would keep her out of jail? Or is it pretty for sure she will do jail time?
There are no guarantees, but she would have a better chance with a lawyer.
I have 2 prior offenses for driving without a license and due to inability to pay off fines my license was suspended by DMV and I was given a third ticket after driving again this time for driving on a suspended lisence. I have a public defender but I have not been able to speak with him because he is near impossible to get a hold of. I am a mother of 2 children and 8 months pregnant with my third. Due to finding out my husband is married to another woman and having to find a new ace to live and basically starting my entire life over as a single mother while being unemployed I have not been able to pay fines or get my license reinstated and I need to avoid jail at all costs as there is no one to take care of my children except myself. Any advice would be helpful at this point I am desperat
Yes, you might be sentenced to jail for this offense. If you are found guilty that means it was proven that you knew...
