  • If i was put on probation for driving on a suspended. And took my first drug test and told them I was dirty then received a

    Notice of probation status hearin wat does that mean

    Stephen’s Answer

    Probation STATUS hearing sounds nicer than a Probation VIOLATION hearing. The judge will probably monitor you more closely and require drug counseling and rehabilitation. After testing positive you could benefit in the long run from this.

  • Odds of successfully contesting New Mexico Law requiring Ignition Interlock for prior DUI/DWI "conviction" Statute 66-5-5e.

    Had a 1st offense DUI in PA back in 2007. Accepted into and completed ARD, (Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition), program where the charges are dismissed without a "conviction" or admission of guilt. Arrest record is expunged and only record ...

    Stephen’s Answer

    Less than 50/50 and expensive. This may be a case of first impression for New Mexico. However there are other examples where the term "conviction" would include such a prior situation. For example New Mexico has a conditional discharge for felonies that sounds very similar to your Pennsylvania DUI prior, and cannot even be used as a prior felony in future cases. However the federal government ignores the New Mexico structure, and considers it a crime for a "felon" to be in possession of a firearm even of his prior felony is a New Mexico conditional discharge. The Feds look at the guilty plea and ignore the lack of a conviction. There are political reasons why New Mexico courts might do the same in your case.

    Another step is to google New Mexico caselookup and see what the online docket says. The main thing is not to miss the next hearing date - a bench warrant would result.

    If you decide to hire a lawyer, Walt Latham specializes in traffic cases and warrants out of that court and charges a reasonable fee. Right now you have two ways to get arrested: the warrant and driving on a suspended license!

  • I was arrested for DUI my blood level was .00 then I was taken to the hospital for a blood test it read .00

    the officer saw 2 prescription bottles in my glove box one for pain one a muscle relaxer she said I was being arrested for drug possession my blood level was .00 and my breath test was .00 I ask if I was going to be arrested she said if it read...

    Stephen’s Answer

    The clerical errors -- 8 pm not 11; one day not the other -- mean nothing. The .00 means nothing if the blood test tox screen comes back with a drug that impairs driving such as pain medication. The key issue for your DUI lawyer will likely be what the camcorder in the windshield captured as far as careless driving, drifting between lanes, and your behavior during the field sobriety test it's not just having a sedative in your system but also proof that you were impaired at the time of your stop. Assuming positive result on drug test, the video is the key factor.
