    The key to remember is that you are that beginning of the process and the Officer is "going to do what he is going to do". What you need to concentrate on is protecting your rights from this moment forward. You should contact an attorney immediately to deal with both your DUI Criminal consequences and the administrative DMV consequences. You have seven days from the date of the ticket to contact DMV and try to keep your license.

    Your boyfriend will be held in the county jail until his court date. At the resolution of this case he will be sent to immigration and subject to deportation. You need a criminal lawyer for the traffic case and an immigration lawyer for the deportation issue. We handle both.

    You need to retain a lawyer immediately. In reviewing your statement, it would appear the search is not proper but there could be other factors. Also the fact this involved possession of a controlled substance you should contact an attorney in your area to protect your rights.

    If you are having personality conflicts with your current counsel ask the judge if you can have him/her removed. You have to understand that just asking for the continuance does not guarantee you getting the continuance. But you need to address the conflicts with your attorney.

    The short answer to your question is yes your warrant will show up in Colorado. The issue in your case is what type of warrant you have. If they are seeking some type of felony extradition back to Alaska or if it’s some type of misdemeanor failure to pay. Also I have to ask were you ordered to pay by the state (plea deal) or did you take it upon yourself to pay back the money on your own. If you are just trying to pay money back to the aggrieved party I would suggest getting an...

    Your biggest issue at this point should be getting an immigration lawyer. While the case may have been dismissed your wife’s record will show that she was charged with the original Domestic Violence charge. The charge alone is going to have ramification on your wife visa.

  9. If I have a DUI in South Dakota and I get a DWAI in Colorado, what will be the penalty?

    You are looking at your Second conviction. While this may only be a DWAI it will still have some pretty severe consequences. You are looking at about $1000 in fines, at least 50 hours of useful public service and some jail time. Because the DA is only charging you with a DWAI I would strongly recommend you get a DUI specialist. The sentences only get harsher after your first DUI and you need to protect your rights.

    Your sister is looking at the revocation of her probation with any plea she takes in the new case. I agree with the prior attorney that any offer made by the DA's will include jail time. The best thing for your sister to do is to contact her PD in the first county and explain that she has another case and needs help in this county. I am assuming your sister whets to do some type of global Plea Deal. By contacting the PD's office that denied her representation she may be able to appeal and...
