Wheeling Law

He is on supervision for his first DUI. He fulfilled all of the requirements set forth by the courts. His final hearing is in March at which time he is to pay his court costs of $1900.00. He has no income and is 28 years old. If he can't pay his court costs, his case manager told him he would go to jail for 30 days. Is this true?
Hopefully your son has a lawyer. If not, he should at least consult with one. Has your son's case been continued...
My court date is finally tomorrow I cannot express my fear. I was put in deportation proceedings after I applied for Citizenship in 2008 for crimes of moral turpitude due to my 2001 & 2002 retail theft convictions. I am now 36 yrs old happily married with 2 small children, boy 5 yrs and girl 15 months and I am 3 months pregnant. I have been at my job almost 5 years and I am deeply sorry for my mistakes and bad judgement. All fines, probations, supervison and requirements were met. And I do not have any aggravated crimes. What are the chances everything will be ok tomorrow? I entered the US in 1985 with H-4 Visa with my parents and siblings (I was 9 yrs old at the time).
You can hope. You've run afoul of the law three times in seven years. That may not impress the decision maker.
I had an issue with my BAIID device. It is a FR9000 ignition interlock. I was driving from work andalready completed one rolling test. I then turned on the air conditioning and realized that the screen on the sample head shut off. I found this weird as it has never happened before. I turned the AC off and after a few minutes, the BAIID device came back on. I did this a few more times to confirm that the AC was causing this and it was. Later in the drive, it asked for a retest. I began to blow but couldn't get the timing right with the beeps. I thought the device was malfunctioning. There seemed to be more beeps than before. It continued beeping and being afraid that the car would turn off in the middle of the road, I pulled off the road, turned off the car and restarted. What should I do?
You can document the problem by contacting the installer but most of them are reluctant to help or admit their fault....
I was wondering whether or not the SOS can see the times/dates of my breath samples into the BAIID to determine whether or not I'm driving within my allotted days/times and possibly issue violations based on that? Anyone have experience with this issue? I'm not planning on violating my driving hours but sometimes things happen--being stuck at work later, having to move cars around so family can get in/out of the garage, etc.
Yes. Every single blow is recorded. The SOS will not review each one as a matter of routine. The danger would be if...
Officer pulled me over for following too closely. Proceeded with DUI investigation. Voluntarily submitted to breathalyzer and blew 0.134. Was unaware that I could refuse the test or of the consequences for failing. The officer told me that it was nothing to worry about since it was my first offense. I was never offered a telephone call until I had already been arrested and processed. Upon being released and viewing the documentation I was given a total of 5 violations, I only knew of 2 DUI & following too closely.
You are eligible for supervision on a first offense. You should consider speaking with an attorney for your case.
I have a Wisconsin license, convicted of DUI in Illinois, I also work in Illinois. Can I get an RDP to travel to and from work? I am also required to do work release as well. I would travel from Twin Lakes, WI to Palatine, IL. Thanks for any and all your help.
To apply for an RDP, you must go through the informal/formal hearing process During your consultation, you must...
I was the DD after party Saturday night. On the way home, i had hit a pothole and believed i had a flat. Upon further inspection, we realized that the problem was more mechanical so I put a request in to my insurance for a tow. After sending the tow request, i realized my phone battery was low so my husband and I walked across the street to the drugstore to buy a charger, leaving my husbands friend and the security guard who witnessed the breakdown. When my husband and I returned the car was gone. The security guard told us the friend took off in the vehicle with only 3 tires. We found out police pursued him until he crashed into a curb, parked van, and pole. We went to the station to report the incident but the officer refused to make a report. He wasn't even charged with a DUI
I am trying to imagine, 'the friend took off in the vehicle with only 3 tires." I would have liked to see that!...
