I have had 2 dui and driving on a suspended license cases in the past. Using my finger prints my FBI background check shows these cases but doesn't clearly show that these cases have ended. What type of paperwork can I ask from the court to show that these cases have concluded and that there are no... Read more »
If by closed you mean settled, each case has a disposition order, that indicates your plea (or verdict) and sentence, you may be able to get the paperwork at any courthouse, but definitely at the courthouse where the case was prosecuted. Regarding open cases, that's what the background check is...Read more »
It won't be dismissed for medical reasons, you may be found "not guilty" by a jury following a jury trial. You should contact a local DUI defense attorney to discuss your medical issues and how they can be developed into a defense.
No, in my experience there is no medical exemption to a DUI suspension. You should contact Mandatory Actions (1.916.657.6525) to determine what you need to do to get your license reinstated. Driving on a suspended license can put your car in impound, you in jail and has fines similar to those of...Read more »
Can I plea guilty on the day of my arraignment so I can speed things up? I pick up my children every friday and drop them off every Sunday. Its a 4 hr drive , 2 going and 2 coming. What can I do so I'm still able to do that?
Contact Mandatory Actions 1.916.657.6525 they can tell you for sure; probably you will need to enroll in a DUI program appropriate for your blood alcohol concentration, file and SR22, pay reinstatement fees and get an Ignition Interlock Device installed on your car.
I got a DUI and its my first offense. I was told I can't leave my county . I have a job which requires for me to drive to and from work. Also on Fridays I drive 2 hrs to a different county because I meet halfways with my baby daddy so that I can have my kids during the weekend and on Sundays I ho... Read more »
You need to request a DMV hearing within 10 days of your arrest to make sure that your license isn't automatically suspended on day 30. The requirement not to leave the county is confusing, presumably you haven't seen a judge so there can't be an "order" limiting your travel. You should contact a...Read more »

My son has been in jail since November. He was arrested for his 3rd DUI in Sonoma County. The deal was that he does half of his sentence and then does the DUI program. The court messed up and is making him do his whole sentence and still do the program. What can we do?
You should contact your son's attorney so that he can calendar the case and tell the court the problem. You should also call the jail and tell them that you think your son is overdetained and have them release him asap
My friend got a dui and there were two people in the car. She was told by a police officer friend that if both of them say they weren’t driving, another person was and basically make up a person, say the friend was driving and ran That they can’t prove who was driving the ca and... Read more »
You have several issues here surrounding your question. The standard of proof for conviction is "beyond a reasonable doubt" that your friend was driving, and that an acceptable scientifical test was performed that your friend was under the influence based upon the blood alcohol level as specified...Read more »
I get a background check from the Doj thru gambling commision every 2 yrs and passed been working same job 9 years but i want to get a notary license is that possible or did i take the 6 hour class for nothing.
Since you were able to pass the background checks, it sounds like the DOJ database does not match your name to your record in Texas. I believe that the same DOJ database will be used to check your background record for notary public and you will pass it just like you passed the gambling...Read more »
Person A rear ended Person B going maybe 15 mph, no damage to person b car (only person a car sustained damage), person b accused person a of being intoxicated, then another person (person c) who saw it said they would act as a witness for Person B. Person... Read more »
For someone to be charged with a DUI, law enforcement has to be involved. Eye witnesses can always testify to their observations and whether they smell alcohol or not. LEO must conduct investigation. For instance the responding officer or DUI unit would request field sobriety exercises and breath...Read more »
If she wants to settle her case she should still contact a local DUI defense attorney. A lawyer can help reduce the punishment and negotiate the terms for performance, if she qualifies a Public Defender may also be able to help her.
I was in a five way collision, and I was third in line. The person I hit, 2nd car, was driving under the influence and was arrested. Technically he's at fault correct? I got a mail recently where his insurance is asking for payment.. I have insurance as well, will my insurance go... Read more »
You rear-ended another driver and they're at fault? I don't think so. You might check with a personal injury lawyer, my experience has been that the driver of the car in back is at fault for following closer than was safe, regardless of the driver in front's sobriety.
I was pulled over for a DUI whereas my bac was .30. The officer later alleged that I attempted to bribe him but has no evidence of me doing such except his own word against mine. Is there a motion that I can file to prohibit the officer from wearing his uniform during his testimony at trial?... Read more »
