I am hiring a lawyer and told him the situation and am working with the Department of Rehabilitative services to get employment and i need to drive to interviews for technicals but i have read articles here saying that you can only drive to and from work and court ordered programs etc.Well i have followed thru on all my court ordered programs etc and finished technical school and am ready to work .I am a hairstylist. i have been working out of my house to get money up for fines and court costs of past but they are just running this time even thou it was 6 going on 7 yrs ago.The court says its all up to the judge what he will or wont approve and the lawyer says as long as i have a schedule it will be up to judge but i dont want to spend my money for nothing ?..i have no dui or dwis..advice
Each judge does treat these differently and there's no way a lawyer can guarantee an outcome. However, when the individual has a schedule and has complied with everything else, the judge tends to approve the schedule. Sometimes, when a person must drive for work itself, or when the days vary, the judge tells the individual to keep their work schedule with them in the car. So, if the individual is pulled over for something they will have the ability to show the officer that they are going to work or home from work. That offers the driver a level of protection as well.
Long and short, your attorney can advise you how to best prepare, but only the judge can make the decision.
