If a Georgia resident is convicted of a DWI in North Carolina will it affect their driving privileges in Georgia?
This person has a valid Georgia license. I have read that Georgia does not have a interstate compact.
It will if Georgia DMV is made aware of the DUI by NC. The states do not always play nice together and they do. It...
DUI less safe drugs and roadblocks
I was stopped at a roadblock shortly after smoking marijuana. I did have it in my possession and my blood was tested. I had also taken an unprescribed adderall previously that day. In my understanding, they must prove that I was a "less safe" driver because of the marijuana. How can this be done if I was stopped at a roadblock? Also, how will the adderall come into play (if at all)?
Most prosecutors will take the "any in your system" approach. But you are correct about less safe, it is difficult if...
Clearing a DUI warrant for a non domicile
Dear sirs I am an English national who was working in Georgia on an H1 B visa from 2001 to 2002. I was arrested for a DUI in 2001 and paid my fine and attended court. I thought that the matter was closed however I have taken a vacation in the USA twice in the last few years and every time I get stopped for an outstanding warrant. Is there any way I can get this charge removed? If it's not possible to have the charge removed would there be a chance of being denied entry to the USA by border control? As mentioned I get pulled and questioned by border guards but have been allowed entry but I would like to get this warrant closed out or removed if possible. I'm planning a honeymoon in Seattle this fall and would like to have this cleared before then if possible.
Usually a misdemeanor will not affect you because most states do not extradite misdemeanants. However, why would you...
I received a DUI in georgia but I live in DC. I plead nolo contendere, which is essentially a guilty plea. However, in my paperwork from my lawyer it stated "I hereby authorize my attorney to enter a plea of nolo contendere/guilty on my behalf and in my absence to all charges related to the above styled matter and sign any and all necessary document regarding same to an ordinance which will not report on my criminal history." what does this mean? I also paid online for a background check on myself and nothing came up. Please advise.
Sounds like your lawyer did a "plea in absentia" which means he/she enters a guilty plea on your behalf so that you don'...
Social Host Liability BYOB party
A person invites guests to a BYOB social at her house and does not serve them her own alcohol. All gusts are over 21 and yet one guest becomes visibly intoxicated and then starts heading to his car. Does the host have a legal duty to stop him? Should she call the police? Tackle him down and restrain him? What if she respects her guests autonomy and lets him drive of without doing anything. Would she then be liable if he crashes an causes an injury to a third party. What if the above events unfolded but she did serve guest her own alcohol but stopped before anybody was visibly intoxicated ?
I will preface my answer by saying I am not a GA licensed attorney. I will answer your question based on how it would...
May I attend an out of state online DUI school if I received a DUI in Georgia?
I got a DUI and found a first offense online DUI class in Nevada at www.duischoolnv.com. It's only $95, a lower price than any other schools here. If I can get my judge to agree to it, would it be possible to take this equivalent dui school for somewhere other than in NV? It's my first DUI and I didn't do any damage, I'd want to take an online course that gives me more freedom and saves me some money. Thanks!
Depending on what court you are going to but the answer will almost certainly be no. You can, however, always ask.
