I got my license suspended at age 18 from 2 DUIs both were under the legal limit but I was under age so I got the DUIs .. Since then I have gotten 3 driving on suspended (in the past 9 years) I moved to california a year and a half ago and cleaned up my life and now need my license to transport my daughter to and from school so I need to start the process. I also have a pending case that I never went to court for (driving on suspended) . I am trying to fill out the packet that the Secretary of State provides to apply to get my license back and it's asking for specific dates of my criminal history (I do not know specific dates) so I may need a criminal docate. Where do I even start?
Step one: order your 7-year driving record from the Michigan Sec of State (costs about $8). Step two: after you get...
I was in a car accident and arrested for suspected dui, waiting on blood test should I get a lawyer?
I was in the accident, but apparently left the scene. I had been knocked out and had a concussion (no memory of accident at all) I was taken in for a blood test I was very disoriented and confused cop thought I was under the influence. Did not receive medical or offered it was taken to jail ended up with concussion and dislocated right shoulder(don't know if the shoulder was from accident or cop handcuffing me and pulling it out). I am on some prescription medication and don't know what will happen.
You definitely need to be proactive and get a lawyer. That way when and if charges are filed, your lawyer will be...
I am moving from Michigan to California for a new job this April. However, my Michigan driver license is restricted to drive to work/school/home until August. The reason for the restriction is because I got multiple tickets (10 points out of the 12 total points limit) during my Michigan driver license's 3-year-probation period (applied to all original Michigan driver licenses). I know that I must get a California license with 10 days of residency setup. After moving to California, what should I do the get a CA driver license? If I can get one, will it be restricted or non-restricted?
Apply with the CA. DMV and see what they tell you. Be HONEST with the CA DMV about the status of your MI license.
I am finishing up 9 months probation. I have weekly etg and drug screens and have been on non reporting for 2 months. My probation is scheduled to end in a couple weeks. I was told I would receive a letter in the mail. Any idea if I will have to go back to court, or get a release or something, or will the letter just tell me I'm done? Is it usually exactly 9 months from the first day of probation, ex Jan 1st to Sept 1, or is it an estimate and can go longer or til the,end,of the month? Just wondering because I may be going or of town for work the next week and will need to change my plans or get exemption for travel if this is the case.
Call your probation officer and seek the answers to your questions. Sometimes courts send you a notice that your...
On my ticket the officer didn't write "enhanced OWI" it's just "OWI" with ordinance number 257.625 (1) does this mean I will just be charged with regular OWI? My lawyer told me she feels that's a good thing. However I've only spoke with her once and she hasn't seen the ticket or arraignment paper. It also doesn't say enhanced on the arraignment paper. Just looking for more opinions.
Your official charge is not what's on the ticket the officer wrote. It will be the charge the city attorney or...
I'm a female and was arrested Saturday night/Sunday morning for OWI. I would like to write my arresting officer a letting thanking him for being so polite and to apologize and let him know I have a lot of remorse. Is that ok? Should I not?
You can, but I would advise against it until you discuss it with a lawyer. What you really need to concentrate on is...
I was arrested for an OWI 1st and I blew a .20 at the scene. I told the officers I had a prescription for Librium (benzo), when asked if I had taken any that day I said yes (stupid) because I was nervous and figured it was legal and I could blame impairment on that. Well truth is k hadn't taken any in at least 48 hours because I know the dangers of mixing the two. I was taken to the hospital and my blood was drawn. I received the results and as expected it showed only alcohol. Do they only list what drugs you are positive for or should it have said drugs that I didn't test positive for? I'm hoping they did test for benzo's so they don't think I was mixing the two. Thanks!
The Michigan State Police do separate tests for alcohol and drugs. The results come in two different report. They may...
