    I am not licensed in Kansas, so out of respect to any experienced criminal defense attorney licensed in Kansas who answers your question, I'd say read his or her answer first. However, my answer is seek at least more than one free consultation over the phone from an experienced DUI attorney in Lawrence and discuss your case, as well as payment options. There may be attorneys who allow payments and you can afford. Use the "Find a Lawyer" link above on Avvo. Good luck to you.

    How you should do this is speak to your attorney in WV and find out if you are still on probation in WV first. If you are, pay the fines and request permission from the judge in WV to take the DUI classes either online or in SC. Get the IID installed, too If you are not still on probation, you may face a bench warrant or warrants, so you'll want to address that before trying to get your driver's license. Good luck to you.

    How much time has passed since you sustained your two convictions? Are you still on probation, but now in SC? My answer is you may be facing a probation violation or violations and that will prevent you from getting either a WV or SC license. I would talk to your WV attorney first and foremost and complete the classes, pay the fines and get the IID installed if you are still on probation. Good luck to you.

    I am not licensed in Tennessee, so out of respect to any experienced criminal defense attorney licensed in Tennessee who answers your question, I'd say read his or her answer first. However, my answer is no. DUI includes driving under the influence of any controlled substance that intoxicates you to the extent you your driving is impaired and you are constitute a danger to others and / or yourself. Moreover, the standard for making a stop in TN is most likely a reasonable suspicion that there is a crime being committed, so this is a huge huge thing for you to show he lacked.

    I am not licensed in Texas, so out of respect to any experienced criminal defense attorney licensed in Texas who answers your question, I'd say read his or her answer first. However, my answer is no because under federal law, anyone convicted of a felony is barred for life from owning or possessing a gun. Sorry - I know this is not the answer you were hoping to read.

  • Can I get a CDL in NYS after 2 DWAI's in the last 8 years? I have never held a CDL and I no longer drink.

    Both convictions were for dwai. one was 2years ago, the other 7yra ago.

    Greg’s Answer

    My answer is no, however, I am not licensed in New York. Therefore, I would verify this with an experienced criminal defense or licensing attorney licensed in New York. I say no because this is so in CA, where I am licensed, and I would expect the same standard to apply nationwide due to the interstate nature of a CDL. Good luck to you, sir.

  • Can I contest a handicapped parking citation when the time constraints of the issuing agency have already passed?

    I received a handicapped parking citation on 1/10/15 at 1:16am in a parking lot in front of a CVS store in Santa Ana, CA. I have a handicapped placard assigned to me which was placed on the rearview mirror When I returned to my car a citation w...

    Greg’s Answer

    Maybe. Go to the courthouse and ask for a judge to hear the matter, but be prepared for a cold "sorry, your deadline to challenge this has already passed." You may be smart to bring documentation of your moving and when you filed your change of address with the post office to show you were diligently trying to prevent what did happen with your mail delivery. Good luck.

    No, but have your DUI attorney look at the document to make sure it actually is not a ticket.

  • I was arrested for possession of marijuana and plead not guilty and I'm on a deferred sentence for felony dui will i go to jail?

    i got my second dui and got a deferred sentence but got arrested recently for posession and plead not guilty. My dui is now a felony since i got arrested again but i haven't had court yet, will i have to do jail time?

    Greg’s Answer

    Mr. Pate's answer is best on this. Jail or prison time is a possibility, not only for the felony case, but for the fact that you were on a deferred entry of sentence on the marijuana case. What was the sentence in the marijuana case, which now may be imposed?
