pulled over for driving to close to highway line. Blew into breathlizer 3 times, and not shown results. Police then agitated, tell me to blow with force, and obtain a reading and show results.
The handheld breathalyzer that you speak of is not scientifically reliable. In most jurisdictions, it is not...
I received a show cause summons that states 4 months and 20 days sentence/ $500 fine. I have had 2 other programs to complete during the same time. I completed the other two programs. I also have a letter from my case worker that recommended that I be reinstated into the program. I have a full time job that I work 6 days a week. My shift starts at 3:40-12:20. I have a son I have to provide for and that amount of jail time will surely end my current employment. What is my best options and do I have to go to jail?
It is up to the judge. You may want to contact your attorney (please tell me you had an attorney for a DUI 2nd!) about...
I am currently deployed to Afghanistan as a DoD Civilian. I was unable to secure a flight back to the USA to make my court date. I was told that the Judge did not charge me with Failure to Appear, but he continued the case by one month and issued a CAPIAS FTA. Will I be arrested at the Airport upon my return to the United States before I have an opportunity to turn myself in to face trial for my charges?
It is possible but not certain. Retain a lawyer in case they arrest you on the bench warrant. The magistrate is...
I am a MSW. I worked in my field for over eight years. While working as an adjunct professor teaching SW and simultaneously working as an Emergency Services worker for MH/SA with the local ER and police calls I burnt out. I ultimately received two dui's. It has been almost three years and I am basically unemployable and on the verge of being homeless literally. What can I do?
This isn't really a legal question, but here is what I would tell a client or a family member. As a social worker you...
I was literally homeless until very recently. I still do not have any money to pay for vasap or my other fines yet, either.
In my experience, probably not. Most clients I have had in this situation are released if they turn themselves in....
The interlock system picked up a BAC of 0.036 and I wasn't drinking that morning.
As you stated, the interlock system isn't perfect. It may have picked up cold medicine, mouthwash, etc. a good...
I am under contract with ASAP to no longer consume alcohol as a terms stated in my ASAP contract to keep a restricted license. However I had a sociable drink with a friend one night at home at 11:30pm and I stopped approximately 1:00 to 1:30am. Around the Time of 11:18am I tried to start my vehicle causing a ''Failed test'' on my interlock system thinking I had the alcohol out of my system by this Time. I do have interlock in my vehicle and as a term of the ASAP contract to have restricted license. I had a past ''Fail test'' and turned off the vehicle and did not attempt ''Re-test'' the same day back on November, 11th ,2013. This is a new ''Failed test''. I was returned to the court by my ASAP case manager this past Friday afternoon I got the letter. However I did inform my lawyer.
So did you have a question? not sure why you thought a sociable drink would be ok, it isn't. Speak to your lawyer...
