I was pulled over almost 2 months ago and blew over the limit. I was not arrested and was released on my own cognition. I pulled a WATCH report today and there is absolutely nothing on my record. I've only received an open container citation that...
The statute of limitations on a DUI is two years. The WATCH report only reflects convictions, not pending investigations. The prosecutors likely have your DUI file in their stack of cases to file. I expect you will be receiving a summons from the court soon. If you blew over .08 on the breath testing machine at the precinct, your driver's license is likely suspended by the DOL. Those administrative sanctions start 60 days after the incident.
Although you don't have a court date yet, now is a good time to start consulting with experienced DUI attorneys.See question
I got my first dui and that was amended down to negligent driving 1 and my attorney had won the dol hearing even thought neg 1 doesn't have any licenses consequences, will this new dui which am doing a deffered prosecution because I believe I am a...
The answer depends on several factors. If the prior DUI reduced to Negligent Driving First Degree was within the past seven years, then the current case can carry a two-year license suspension if the breath test on the new case is less than .15, or 900 days if a refusal or over .15. If you are granted a deferred prosecution there is no license suspension, but you will be required to have an IID for at least one year.
