  • Can I get my license back if my dwi case was dismissed

    I was unable aware I had to go to a dmv hearing 10 days prior to my arrest I thought it was 10 days after I was charged. I called and asked if there was any way I can request a hearing but the lady was really rude and said no to bad you have to ge...

    Stephen’s Answer

    Unfortunately, because you did not request a hearing within 10 days after your arrest, DMV requires that you obtain in interlock license for six months. If you are pulled over while driving, you will be arrested for driving on a revoked/DUI unless you have the interlock license and a properly installed interlock device. This is true even though the magistrate judge dismissed your DUI case. The DMV administrative process is separate from the criminal court system.

    Your DUI lawyer probably explained all of this to you when you hired him. It is not all a wash. Had you been convicted of DUI you would have that conviction on your record, community service, VIP class, DWI school, alcohol screening and counseling, court costs, possible fines, possible jail, one year of supervised probation, a compliance hearing and one full year of the interlock.

    Consider yourself lucky that all you must do is a few more months on the interlock.

    I received what I felt was a bogus traffic ticket in a different state. Despite my efforts to call and find out my day in court, I was given the run-around by the clerks office. Eventually I received a bench warrant in the mail but no notice of a ...

    It looks like the original bench warrant fee was not waived in the computer system. Talk to the clerk about the judge waving the $100 fee

  • What if the find u incompetence to stand trial

    sent me to mental health for a valuation

    Stephen’s Answer

    If you are found incompetent to stand trial, you are evaluated by a local forensic psychologist and, if s/he agrees, you are sent to the state hospital in Las Vegas for treatment to competency. That could take months while your criminal case is kept on hold until you are ready to go forward.

  • Do I really need to go to pre trail on an arraignments bond hearing

    Was caught with unpaid items

    Stephen’s Answer

    The summons to appear at court for your arraignment is more than a polite request. It has teeth. If you don't appear, the court will issue a bench warrant for your arrest. The judge will also set a higher bond for you to post to be released from jail while the case is pending. By not showing up, you will be considered a flight risk who cannot be trusted to show up on your own.

    Hello, when I was 19 years old I was pulled over and arrested for a DWI, I blew a .08. In court the judge found me not guilty because the officer who pulled me over did not have probable cause to stop me, I was not speeding or swerving and there w...

    Stephen’s Answer

    Technically you are a DWI First simple but not a "true" first. Your prior brush with the law does not increase the minimum and maximum penalties but can be mentioned by the prosecutor and considered by the judge at your sentence hearing
