My son is on supervision for a DUI. He has no income. He is unable to pay his $1900.00 court cost. Will he go to jail?
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...
Received DUI in 2005 & retail theft in 2001 & 2002 -- Have been permanent resident since 1988
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.
BAIID Device possible violation, questions..
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....
Hi, I was just issued an RDP along with the requirement for a BAID and I had a question.
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...
Just arrested for DUI in Chicago. Blew 0.134. First offense. Can I get supervision with guilty plea/finding?
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.
DUI IN TAXES, Illinois resident
I am an IL resident. I had a DUI in IL almost 3 years ago which I was not convicted with. I got supervision. Almost a year ago I was pulled over in TX for driving under the influence. My BAC level was 0.15. The charges are still pending. I was wondering if I can bring that case to IL the state of my residence and have an IL lawyer to represent me instead of going back and forth to TX. Also, I had to install an ignition interlock device in Denton County, TX as a requirement of bond. Will my DUI from IL that got reduced to supervision be treated as a first DUI in TX and then a DUI from Taxes considered as a 2nd DUI. I have an attorney in TX but don't rely on him. Is there any way to bring that case to the state of IL? Or is it better to be held in TX?
In a word, no. Two different sovereigns and two different laws. Get chummy with your Texas lawyer.
DUI Supervision requirements
Under supervision till December 2015. One of the requirements is "no other traffic or criminal violations, no similar offenses" I have not received a ticket or been pulled over since the supervision began. My attorney told me not to worry if were to get a speeding ticket going 5 mph - 10 mph over. Attorney also got my summary supervision rescinded at court date. Said he had a good relationship with prosecutor. That being said, any traffic violation could cause the supervision in jeopardy if the state wanted to re-sentence me?
It sounds like your attorney did a good job for you. Technically any traffic ticket would be a violation of your...
