Cary B. Hall's answer No, unfortunately not -- unless you can convince the DA not to "count" it, for some reason. Have your attorney give it a shot, although it would admittedly be a hail-mary long shot!
Samuel C. Breslin's answer You likely will not be extradited, however there will be a warrant issued, and if you’re stopped by police in any other state you could be arrested and held. If you don’t resolve the DWI, it is going to follow you around and create more problems than it’s worth. I recommend handling it sooner rather than later.
Kevin John Mawn's answer If you have taken the breath test, you will lose your license for 6 months if it is s first offense. However, you are eligible for a business purpose only license once you sign up for DUI level one. If this is a second offense, you may wish to consult with the bureau of administrative review to determine eligibility. DUIs from other states may factor into license eligibility.
Amanda Bowden Houser's answer If by 'received' you mean you were charged, then there is no statute of limitations. If you have not or do not take care of the charge eventually you are likely to be arrested - and usually at the worst possible time.
Brent T. Geers' answer You'll need to consult with a tax attorney or other tax professional, particularly about whether mileage is deductible. It will all obviously depend on your overall tax situation; with the raised standard deduction starting with this tax year, a lot of people who used to itemize may no longer be able to do so, which would make your question a moot point if you are one of those people.
Very generally, I am unaware of allowable deductions for fines, fees, or costs related to criminal...
Cary B. Hall's answer No, but I'm sure he would. Having the restitution as part of his criminal parole/probation is certainly effective, isn't it? It makes failure to pay it a violation of your probation, so it will be paid or he'll be re-sentenced (and probably to jail). Unfortunately for your friend, it's the only game in town for him, so he'll have to pay it . . . and to do whatever it takes to do so.
Mr. Hudson Thomas Bair's answer I'm not sure what you are asking but if you are questioning the legitimacy of the DMV procedures because the hearing officer is both the prosecutor and the fact finder, that has been litigated and upheld. You should ask your lawyer what appellate steps can be taken following an adverse DMV decision.
Michael Arbeit's answer If you were already sentenced on the DWAI, that can not be vacated by the court. You could however be sentenced up to 15 days in jail because of an alleged violation of your conditional discharge. What county is this case in? Consider hiring a lawyer to try and keep you out of jail.
Amanda Bowden Houser's answer In North Carolina it is DWI. Your license to drive or at least your privilege to drive in North Carolina (if you are licensed out of state) will be suspended at the time you are charged - generally speaking for 30 days. This is called a civil revocation. If you are processed properly, you will receive written notice of that fact. If eligible, you can apply for a limited driving privilege after 10 days to carry you through the remaining 20 days of the initial civil revocation suspension or...
H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.'s answer Yes it is possible for a first-time offender to go to jail however generally you need some exceptional circumstances such as a high reading or accident. The best way to assure that you will avoid jail is by hiring the best lawyer you can afford.
Mr. Hudson Thomas Bair's answer You can be picked up, "stopped" anywhere in the US, the airport included. You will also have to "clear" customs if you return from an international trip. The clearance process will likely show the arrest warrants, what happens at that point is up to the authorities at the airport. My unsolicited suggestion is that you get them taken care of before embarking on any trip within the US or outside of it.
Zachary Divelbiss' answer This is a really good question to speak in confidence with a lawyer about. As a lawyer, we have to advise you that you could possibly face the maximum sentence but there are always different things we can do to get the sentence reduced. A lawyer will also be able to tell you how good your case is after speaking with you. The fact that you have a prior Disorderly Conduct might make it worse but it will not likely be an issue. The main prior to work about are DUI's. Either way, a Super Extreme...
