I am currently halfway through a 2 year probation sentence on "reckless driving while under the influence." As an alcoholic, I was doing well for a year. Unfortunately, I did have a relapse, voluntarily am waiting to get back into treatment, and a...
Clearly, you are powerless over alcohol, which is why the judge condition and your probation on abstinence . So it is highly unlikely that a judge would remove that condition. It seems like the court's order and the SCRAM are the only reasons why you're not currently drinking, and you are looking forward to your next chance to resume drinking. Instead of going back to court in order to remove this condition of probation, you should focus instead on your recovery. You are in need of additional treatment. Your life may depend on it.See question
I was driving on the highway going 70 mph on a 55mph when I got pulled over by state police. He then gave me a ticket for speeding and improper lane switching and also said he will be taking my license until I show up to court.
Yes, you may drive. Carry the ticket in place of your driver's license.See question
do I need an attorney for this, will my fine be over $800 and will my license be suspended?
Yes, you need an attorney. This is a misdemeanor offense, and you the possibility of jail. Your license would not get suspended for this alone, but it could happen if you have other recent moving violation convictions.See question
I am on supervision for a DUI, with monthly reporting to Cook County Social Services. I had an appointment 5/1. When I showed up the case worker was not there; reception had me sign in and told me to call him later in the week to reschedule the ...
I often represent people who are facing violation of sentence based on their alleged failure to report to social services, and almost always they have a story similar to yours. Guess what? The social workers deny that such a thing ever happened and the Judges believe them. So my advice is to go back to their office to schedule a new appointment and speak to a supervisor, if possible. If you can't talk to someone, insist that someone provide you with proof that you were there and were turned away.See question
I've had 2 DIU's in my life, in 1985 and 1987. I was revoked in '87, and after numerous attempts at reinstatement and work permits I have finally succeeded in obtaining a permit to drive my disabled wife (in her vehicle) to her medical appointment...
If you DUi conviction, then you would only have to have the BAIID for one year. If you have two convictions, then you are required to have it for five continuous years. The reason for this is that the legislature passed this law and the Governor signed it. Now it's the law.See question
I was stopped and detained by a police officer who said that I was driving under the influence. A sobriety test was administered to me and the alcohol reading was lower that the amount need for a prosecution of the alleged offense. The State's A...
No, it is not automatically expunged. To get the arrest expunged, you will need to file for an expungement. Either hire an attorney or you could attempt to do it yourself (there is an expungement booklet that you can find on Dorothy Brown's website or at the courthouse).See question
A warrant was issued in 2008 for failure to appear and I was arrested on that warrant currently in may 2017. I have not been convicted and I have to go to court.
The Statute of Limitations was satisfied when the charge was originally filed, so there is no issue under these facts.See question
I use my license to perform my job and use a company vehicle to do so. This will greatly increase the likelyhood I would be let go.
Yes, they can do this. I agree with Mr. Harvatin.See question
Today sunday may 7 I got pulled over for not making a stop a a stop sing and I have a court day pending June 2 but due to the fact that is my fourth time through the years getting pulled over I need to know if I need the service of a proffesional ...
A fourth of anything would require an attorney. You don't say why you do not have a driver's license. If you are suspended or revoked for DUI, then you are probably looking at a mandatory minimum sentence and possible felony situation. Even if your failure to have a license is for some less serious reason, you need legal representation.See question
I recently discovered that I have a warrant from 1997 when I was 17 years old and I don't know the best way of handling it by myself. I learned of the warrant when I applied for a job and the company did a background check and it came up. I've liv...
First of all, you didn't State the nature of the charge against you. A serious felony will naturally be treated more severely than a misdemeanor. Second, no one can promise or even predict with any degree of certainty what a judge will do. You seem to want to clear this up without any risk or expense to you whatsoever. That is not realistic. Also, you should not discuss the facts of this case online.See question
