If your son's DUI is still pending then he likely has certain conditions he must comply with until the case resolves....
I am on deferred prosecution for a 2nd DUI. Two months before my 5 year probation was up, I was arrested for a domestic dispute - which I know is a probation violation. The trial has been pushed back because the other party is refusing to talk, however, if I get charged for the domestic dispute, what am I looking at for the DUI? I have already gone through treatment and have had a blower in my car. Would I have to do jail time or fines, both? I am nervous for the unknown and the court appointed attorney does not have an suggestions or answers for me.
While many courts will wait for a resolution of the underlying case before deciding whether a probation violation has...
8 years ago I was together with a man in Oregon Lane County. while dating him he was cited with driving under the influence, and currently own/operator of a bar and Grill. as a part of his plea agreement strategy he agreed to have chemical substance treatment to get a reduction in sentence and received// .I should have realized that something was wrong when I cosigned for his treatment. Subsequently in the last few months he filed for bankruptcy and placed the bill for the treatment into the bankruptcy. I was never notified. I just was served suit for the outstanding balance. I now live in eastern Washington... Please help me in the right direction. I was pretty sure that i would have been notified by the bankruptcy court and been invited to the meeting of the debtors. Do i file ch 7 to?
It depends on when your last communication with the creditor was. If you have had no contact with the creditor and have...
I have moved back to WA a few months after my CO license was revoked. I have been told that per interstate compact, I should be able to obtain a license in WA under the same WA restrictions that would be imposed if the revocation happened while I was a WA resident (now being a WA resident, I should be treated as such). If same case happened while WA resident, I would be able to drive under restrictions. If I were still a CO resident, I would be able to drive under CO restrictions. However WA has been saying cannot drive AT ALL until CO completely lifts the hold. This does not seem to be right, I should have some course of action toward being able to drive. My WA residency has been established. I am looking for advise on how to proceed.
You may need to take steps to get the revocation lifted in Colorado to get a Washington License. The interstate compact...
The evidence was thrown out of my case when the doctor refused to come to court when subpoenaed. I was convicted even though I was not drinking at the time I am involved in an appeal at this time. My appeal attorney,(court appointed) has filed an anders brief to be released from the case but I have all of my diagnoses in writing and wish to carry the appeal case through.
You have not asked a question but I assume that you want some information about what you can do on an appeal. If...
I have a WA license that expired while I was living out of state the last 2 years. My out of state license is currently revoked after being charged with DUI, legal case still pending. After losing my job, I moved back to WA for a new job. I am wondering what is best course of action to now take in order to be able to renew my WA license and be able to drive ASAP.
All states have an agreement to honor each other's suspensions or revocations. So, you need to get your revocation...
My significant other is simply not going to stop drinking. He would rather do a year and a day in prison (which is at 50% off, correct?) and be on probation the shortest possible time. He is willing to not drive but is not willing to stop drinking. If he goes through the probation/violation merry-go-round this could be hanging around his neck for decades. I know they can make him not drive. But can they really make him seek treatment and not drink?
The judge can order your significant other to do a lot of things but if he refuses to them the main thing a judge can...
