Hi. I was found guilty of a DUI in Virginia January of this year. I am not proud of this at all. I am supposed to attend a family event in Bermuda in August for two days and was wondering if this DUI is going to be a problem for me, as far as ent...
The first thing is whether you are on a bail bond or probation. If you do have a bail bond or probation, check with the probation officer and the terms of the bond for travel restrictions. If you do not have a bond the DUI should not be a bar to travel to Bermuda. You can check by calling the Bermuda immigration hotline: (441) 296-5202See question

If an inmate suffers a heart attack and is pronounced dead for a min or less but is later resuscitated, is the life sentence still in effect since he died for a brief period of time?
I cannot imagine that a life sentence would end for a person that is still living. I do not know of any case that decides this issue, but I do not know of a judge anywhere that would say the life sentence was over and the person could go free. While there might be a technical argument that life had ended, public policy concerns about freeing a person who was sentenced to life would overrule any technical argument. If this technical argument were correct, anyone who was resuscitated from any fatal condition would have no legal rights because they would be dead. It just won't happen.See question
Convicted felon on probation with a prior felony firearm possession. Got pulled over for tag light. Had a gun in glove box and ran. Current charges... possession of firearm by convicted felon, felony attempt to flee and elude. What can we do??
Since this is posted in the Federal Crime section I will assume you are asking about the federal penalties. The minimum and maximum penalties will depend upon his record. If this is charged as simple felon in possession he is facing a maximum of ten years and a minimum of zero. I would not expect him to get the minimum. If he has three prior convictions that qualify under the federal Armed Career Criminal Act he is looking at a minimum of 15 and a maximum of life. He needs a lawyer.See question

If he committed the state charge while on federal supervised release he is facing a revocation of supervised release. If he cannot afford a lawyer it is likely a federal defender or CJA panel attorney will be appointed to represent him. The judge has the discretion to decide the state time was enough jail time, or he can be sentenced to more time.See question
