5 years ago I was charged with DUI in WV. The charges were reduced to reckless driving. I got a letter from the WV DMV saying I had to take classes. When I called they said since I was a PA resident that I would have to call PA DMV to see what they wanted me to do. When I called PA they said they had no record of it so as far as they were concerned I didnt have to take any classes. I just moved to Ohio and tried to get a new licence but was flagged by WV. Will I have to take the classes and if so will I be able to take them somewhere in Ohio?
Every State has conditions on obtaining a license. Driving is considered a "privilege," not a "right" and as a result,...
So I recently recieved a ticket for underage consumption. The ticket is for a whopping $550. When I was breathalyzed I blew a .5 and on the ticket he put .5. Obviously this is impossible. If I blew a .5 I wouldn't have to worry about the fine because I would be dead. I was given a court date this thursday. Could I get this dismissed simply on the fact that the breathalyzer was obviously malfunctioning? Any other advice?
First, a BAC of .5 isn't impossible. I've seen them over .7. Second, if cross-examined, the officer will almost...
My girlfriend told me she needs to have a blow & go installed in a vehicle in order to obtain a drivers license. Back in 2010 her husband at the time jumped into her vehicle after drinking at a bar, he was only supposed to go to work an come home. When he didn't come home she went looking for him in his mother's car an found her car at a bar parking lot she entered the establishment. An arrangement was trying to be made to get home safely all tho two vehicles where at the business location. An argument developed while discussing the means to get home. An the 220lb husband jumped in behind the wheel an sped off. Wife gave chase.. a mile down the road husband rolls wife's car... Wife charged with PERMITTING A DUI. Lawyer beat the permitting charge but was charged with obstruction.
You have given details about an incident a few years ago but I don't know why. Do you have a question?
The state of WV dropped the permitting to drive at the court house, but dmv charged her, SHE didn't contrary it in time. This has been a few years ago. All she wants is advice on how to get her license back. Or asks someone to help her. She has told the dmv several times that she isn't married to the bone head any more so I don't see why I have to pay to have a blow an go installed in my vehicle for her when she's not the drunk, hee idiotic x husband is. This all cost her marriage an wants to take some legal action against WV. They did her wrong, an it's taken a heavy toll on her life an mine.
It's difficult to answer your question without knowing what she was charged with or what specific administrative...
I am required to drive an interlock equipped only vehicle based on a WV DUI sentence. I was pulled over for speeding in Michigan for 5mph over in a rental car, but was not ticketed for driving without interlock as my virginia drivers license does not show any restriction. My question is what to expect from WV, I.e. Will they find out that I was driving a non interlock vehicle despite not being ticketed for that? When WV runs a check at the completion of my interlock program and sees I had a speeding ticket, how deep will they look? Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.
No one can tell you if anything will come of this. All depends if the prosecutor becomes aware of the speeding ticket...
I came into town with a company crew for work. Got charged. Company shut down and out of job. Became homeless. Indigent. Unable to stay in town. So unable to get back to court. Ever since then unable to obtain a license to drive. Need to see if I can find someone to get the case closed cheap. Can't afford alot of money as hence need a license to get decent jobs. Someone suggested check here and maybe because of time I have had to go without a license 10 times plus longer than a conviction. Maybe someone can get the case dismissed? Trying to turn my life around.
Look on the find a lawyer section for your area of AVVO and ask around. Not sure what cheap means, but not all...
An intoxicated woman was pulled ovr, charged with a DUI, and made a statement that resulted in a search warrant of an unrelated residence. Is it legal to obtain a search warrant on the statement of an intoxicated woman who was charged with DUI?
Sure, happens all the time. Clearly, even in her intoxicated condition she provided sufficient details that convinced...
