A DUI conviction alone should not flag you as such a person, as alcohol use by adults 21 years of age or older is not inherently illegal. The gravamen of a DUI offense is impaired driving, not the drinking itself. A DUI also does not necessarily indicate an addiction. Furthermore, alcohol is not...View More

It was a plea agreement from DUI to "wet reckless" with one of the conditions being to take ASAP before getting my license back. I am unable to take ASAP for financial reasons, can't secure employment, and this is holding me back from life progression.
You will most likely have no success in doing that because it was plea between you and the Commonwealth which is basically a contract. Additionally, you are well beyond the time to appeal or reopen your case.
The answer is, it depends. If you were interdicted then it is illegal for you to purchase or possess alcohol. Often times, the courts will also include in the terms of your probation and good behavior that you were not allowed to purchase or possess alcohol. Virginia is an at will employment...View More

Unfortunately, ASAP has the control here. You are in the position of being at their mercy. Though the program should potentially be tailored to more individual needs as they say they are doing, most people are treated very similar and have to go through the same amount of time for their courses....View More

On my driving record it says I killed someone on a dui. I got a dui but I never killed anyone. What can I do to get it removed? Can I sue someone about this they are making me do a treatment session due to this.
It depends on if the court required you to or if DMV requires you to. The court can tell you that its not required but the DMV is a separate entity and can make you take ASAP related to their requirements. If neither has ordered you to, then you are free to go.
I was able to get my license reinstated as early as possible as I completed everything the courts required well before I was able to get my license reinstated. I thought it only stayed on my driving record for 7 years but everything I see now says it's 11 years. This case was in Chesapeake, VA... View More
A DWI in Virginia stays on your driving record for 11 years. Unfortunately as the law is currently it stays on your criminal record forever. There are efforts in the legislature to reform the current system but as it is now it cannot be removed from a criminal record.
Fiance received a ruling of good behavior for 2 years and the judge made the decision on June 1st. Well my fiance got a dwi while he was awaiting trial for the domestic violence. IF the judge made the ruling of 2 years good behavior, can the judge use the dwi against him, or would it even count if... View More
I was also told I'd have to have a breathalyzer installed in my vehicle for at least 6 months. Last year or so I asked for a transcript of my charges to ask the D.M.V. what I need to to start getting my licenses reinstated. Since the breathalyzer wasn't present on my transcript would I... View More
In classic legal form the answer is it depends. If the court didn’t order you to have the interlock in your vehicle and you simply walked without driving during your suspension time you may be able to simply finish the ASAP course and pay your reinstatement fee to get your license back.
