I just did a 6 month jail sentence for a 3rd DWI. Can I get time served for a Driving while suspended on this DWI?
I was on this site 6 months ago and asked questions about my DWI before serving my sentence. I copied and pasted it so you can get an idea of my situation. I received the Summons 2 days before serving my sentence. The officer didnt pull me over he came to my house. I had a 3rd DWI in 2009. I had a Lawyer that was not a DWI Lawyer. He told me to plead guilty or they would bring back my other tickets and I would serve a longer sentence. I did, and he asked for a stay because of a prior in 1999, I was not properly represented. I appealed it for 2 years today. I now have to go to jail for 5 months because I served a month for the sentence already. My husband lost both legs and both arms in 2010 after my plead of guilty. I have a 13 year old also, i am the caregiver for both of them.
Much more information is needed. If your appeal was denied the only thing available is a PCR on ineffective assistance...
i have a warrant for the dui for missing my court date and the matter is about 18 months old at this point. I am nervous because it was the secound time i was charged with dui before the age of 21, but my first was down-graded to reckless driving. My issue is i need to be able to take care of it on a trip home and be able to settle the matter and not have to deal with jail time, and the community service, and classes. I do not know if that is possible so thats why i am reaching out. And, is it possible to pay off all fines and surcharges up to date to get like a time-served style suspension since my license has been suspended this whole time anyway so that i could come home to florida and get a license here.
You should retain a lawyer. The lawyer will evaluate the case and conduct discovery. If the best option is to accept...
I got a DUI for there being drugs in my system even though my BAC was .06. This occurred while I was on probation; as such, I have since passed several drug tests. Additionally, I recently took a DSM 5 Point Diagnostic that also involved a drug test that determined I do not require further treatment. My fear is that because on my scantron, I answered honestly saying that I had attended NA meetings, I will be further referred. I told the instructor straight up that it was back in high school (now 23) and my test will confirm that though I admitted to hard drug use, I haven't in over a year. My biggest concern is that I will be referred by default, fail for marijuana as a result, and be screwed. Any insight would be helpful.
That is up to the IDRC counsellors.
My fiance was charged with a DUI blew a 0.08 but the Alco test ended up being thrown out we stayed in court until 1:30AM and he was still charged 9 months loss license the lawyer asked for a stay in the case for an appeal the judge granted it. - Well the township STILL put the charges through even though they werent supposed to, the lawyer contact the twp sent them a letter and us a letter stating for thee stay in the case but the twp still has the charges 3 months later. we have a court date to appeal mid- sept. SO my question is do we have a good chance of getting this dropped because of the twps multiple clerical errors? ALSO, if they keep the charges since he already served 3 months with no license will they grant that as time served
What did your attorney say when you asked them? As for getting the charges dropped, that would depend on the original...
I had a BAL of .126
Both PA and NJ are part of the interstate drivers license compact so you would probably be suspended here as well....
How long can you be sentence to probation for a 4th degree felony (crime)? (Question for REAL ATTORNEYS; NO MUNICIPAL LAWYERS)
I was sentence 5 years on a 4th degree to probation (suspended incarnation). It was dropped from a 1st degree felony (crime) to a 4th degree felony (crime). I have my discovery & all documents for my case at hand. My understanding is the maximum you can be in custody for is 18 months (incarcerated) for a 4th. I am looking to apply for PCR in SUPERIOR COURT! ; Not Municipal Court; REAL ATTORNEYS' PLEASE RESPOND PLEASE & THANK (RSVP) * I already completed 2 years on probation and my lawyer didn't make me aware of PTI (since it was my first arrest ever I could have applied) PTI Motion was never filed. Is this an excessive sentence and PCR eligible?
You need to address your legal issues with the attorney that represented you in your criminal matter. If you are...

You should have received the 10 year step down between DWI 2 and 3. However, that does not apply to DWI #4, which is...
