I'm pregnant an I have work and school to get to. But they said I'm not eligible for a permit? Is that right?
Permits are for 21+. You need to speak with an attorney ASAP.
My 17 yr old daughter was arrest for DUI and consumption of a minor. Will she need an attorney or will a public defender be OK?
My daughter is currently on juvenile probation from an arrest in April 2013, her PO is about to release her, however, she was charged with a DUI in July 2nd 2014, and taken to the county jail. She blew a .16, can the DJJ do anything to her now? And do we need to tell her DJJ PO about this arrest? Or should we go to our final appt. This Monday 7/14, and not mention this?

Arrested for Possession of Marijuana. NO DUI. found old ashes
Asked this question before but I wasn't clear enough I suppose. I was driving a friend home and went through a road block, the cops suspected we were high and had drugs, (we had no drugs and were not high, but there was ashes in the car from a totally different day) anyways they charged me and 2 other with possession. We had no weed. at all. I nor anyone in the car was DUI. the only illegal thing that we did was me driving without my license on my person and they didn't even charge me for that, the police were going to let us go but I suppose a higher ranking officer was having bad day and said no tolerance.they claimed car smelled like weed which I don't believe it did but oh well maybe it did, but does and ashes give enough evidence? what are chances of this being dropped
Same question, same answer: the chances of it being dropped are near zero (0). Prosecutors don't just "drop" cases....
Can you appeal a Georgia DDS decision that you must take a DUI school to renew your license because of an old MIP charge???
I got a MIP when I was 19 (2001). I was given 6 mths probation and a small fine. I completed the probation with no problems. At the time of my arrest I had a Class C learners permit. I was NOT in a motor vehicle when I got the MIP, I was at a party. No action was taken by the state concerning my DL, in fact I was still able to get my full Class C license later that year. I didn't have any problems with my DL until it was suspended in 2011 for failure to pay a ticket. I had it reinstated March 2012 with no issues. I went to our local DDS office to renew my license yesterday and was told that they would not renew my license b/c of an "old MIP" that was never resolved. They told me the only way to get my license renewed was to take a DUI class and pay $35 reinstatement fee!!!
Pay the fees and get your license back. That will cost you total $115 maybe. Appeal will take longer and cost you...
