    If you have an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) on your car and it detects results over .02., the company that installed the IID will report the results to the court or your probation officer. The court will schedule a probation violations hearing. The court will most likely impose additional jail time and fines as sanctions. You should immediately contact the attorney who handled your DUI Good Luck

    It is possible to get a DUI dismissed or to have the charges reduced. In order to answer your question with any degree of certainty more facts are needed to determine the liklihood of this happening. DUIs are very complicated. You should not handle the DUI on your own. If you are unable to hire a qualified DUI attorney, you should see if you are eligible for a public defender.

    The maximum sentence for a conviction for an assault in the fourth degree is one year in jail and a fine of $5000. However, it is extremely unlikely that given the circumstances of this case that your husband would do any jail time. It would appear that your husband has a defense of self-defense to the charge of assault fourth degree. If the Court becomes aware of your husband's out of state criminal history it could influence the Judge if it involves other assaults or crimes of violence....

    It is not the law that a BAC breath sample must be given within 20 minutes of the arrest. The 20 minute observation period refers to a waiting period which is given to all persons (in some states it is 15 minutes) where the person who administers the BAC is supposed to observe the suspect for 20 minutes to ensure that he does not put anything into his mouth or hicup or belch. This wating period also allows any mouth alcohol to disipate. Without the appropriate waiting period, mouth alcohol...

    It is always possible to get a DUI reduced to a lesser charge. Without more facts, it is difficult to tell you with any degree of certainty the liklihood that it could be reduced. DUIs are very complicated I would not recommend that you handle it by yourself. If you cannot afford a qualified DUI attorney see if you qualify for a public defender. Good Luck

  8. I loaned a friend money for her business, nothing was signed, how do I go about getting it back?

    Answered almost 5 years ago.

    1 lawyer answer

    The problem that you have is that you loaned money to your friend without having her sign a promissory note or a contract documenting the loan. On the positive side you did write her a check which can help establish that you did in fact loan her money. She has also paid you some of your money back which I assume she paid via a check. This will further help you establish the existence of a loan. I would send her a letter asking her for either the return of your money or a payment plan to pay you...

    Unfortunately, you can not have your DUI conviction in the State of Washington expunged or vacated. It is very important that when you apply for your nursing license you disclose this conviction. A DUI can happen to anyone. The fact that it happened when you were 21 is easily explained as youthful indiscretion. Disclosing it will not prevent you from becoming a licensed nurse in the State of California. However, if you failed to disclose it and the State of California later finds out about it,...
