    There is no way we can answer this question for you. DUI cases are far to complex for us to try to second guess your lawyer. You need to talk to your lawyer about your concerns. You should also refrain from posting case information, particularly information about your actions in the case. Prosecutors do read these posts. A smart prosecutor (or even one that is only moderately bright) can look at what you have posted, figure out which case it is, and use what you posted against you....

    Yo should talk to a lawyer about this. Texas recognizes accomplice liability in DUI cases. Being an "accomplice" means that you actively participated or assisted in committing a crime and you could face the same degree of guilt as person who committed the crime. It is possible, although not certain, that by serving the person too much and then telling them you would follow them home to make sure they had no problems, you were an active participant in that person driving while intoxicated....

    Vic Carmody is absolutely right. You should ask your attorney these questions. Also, you should not be posting facts about the case here if you are represented by a lawyer. The fact that these issues have been identified can tip off the state about your defense if a prosecutor happens to read this and connects it to your case. Wayne R. Foote, Esq.

  4. Can you enter Canada prior to an actual "conviction" ?

    The last answer is entirely incorrect. Under Canadian law you are barred from entering Canada if you have a pending DUI charge or even an administrative suspension for excessive BAC or refusing a test, as well as for a DUI conviction. It is not something you put on a customs declaration - they don't ask on any form you fill out. What happens is that the US shares its criminal and motor vehicle records with Canada. Canadian immigration will find out from those sources. Please see my legal...

  5. Can I fight the IL SOS for a suspension instead of a revocation? I am a first time DUI offender (in NY w/ expired IL license)

    Illinois can and did revoke you license/driving privileges in IL for the NY conviction under the interstate driver license compact. Whether IL had the authority to do so when you no longer held an IL license must be decided in the IL courts. I expect the time you have to appeal that to court in IL may be limited. In Maine you would have 30 days from receiving the notice of revocation. If your deadline to appeal has gone by you will probably need to satisfy IL's reinstoration requirements...

    Assuming that you want to travel to Canada, your question really has three parts. The first question is one you did not post. That question is whether a Probation Before Judgment for DUI will make you inadmissible to Canada under Canadian immigration law. That question should properly be asked of a Canadian immigration lawyer. Answering the question may take a couple of hours of the attorney's time, so you should expect to pay accordingly. The second question, whether Immigration...

  8. Why did cop take my blood samples with him from hospital? Why didnt they test blood there?

    The hospital did not have test equipment with enough accuracy and precision to test the blood. The blood will be sent to a lab with gas chromatography test equipment. If they bring charges, you will probably need a good DUI lawyer that has attended gas chromatography school. Be sure to tell the lawyer about the breath test. The cop may not have liked how low the breath test was reading. A low reading can only help you.

    There is no way to tell without knowing the entire case. That information should not be posted here because this is a public forum. This is a question your boyfriend should ask his lawyer.

    You need to talk to a Georgia lawyer experienced in federal firearms law right now!! That lawyer can look at the details of your case and answer your question. In the meantime, stop posting this sort of information here. If you truly are barred from possessing firearms by federal law you have just admitted to committing nine federal felonies. Three for possessing the firearms, and six for lying on the ATF form and to the dealer on each sale. This is a public forum. Prosecutors and...
