I pled guilty to 2nd DUI. I also pled guilty (due to guilty plea of dui) to a probation violation on 1st dui. I missed a probation meeting. I was sentenced to mandatory jail time and home detention for DUI. Judge allowed me to do the probation...
To go in front of the same judge, go to the court clerk's office and ask them their procedure to get it on the calendar: follow their instrutions. If you had an attorney and he/she is still the attorney of record the court clerk may indicate that your attorney must do it. Be nice, but that is not true. You have a right to represent yourself. It is best to have an attorney look into the actual facts of the case. There have been times when someone did not understand the mandatory minimums and asked the court for a review and it got worse. You want to know for sure the answer to the question before you ask it. I can not tell from your information how the 120 days comes about but 30 days for the probation violation added to 90 days of EHM time for a 2nd offense within 7 years with breath test greater than .015 or a refusal equals the 120. This means you sould have had 45 days in custody time. Again, you should have the answer to the question before you ask the Court. Good luck!!See question
I received a citation issued by the Federal Protective Services. I am a federal employee and was cited while driving a government vehicle around the federal building I work. I was pulled over for reportedly rolling past a stop sign located just ou...
As stated above, handling a citation in Federal court is a very different scenario than state court. First, an attorney must be approved to practice in Federal court as opposed to State court. Second, the procedures are more stringent than state court and the rules of evidence are applied in a different manner. Being that you are a federal employee and this was issued on federal land, I'd recommend hiring an attorney familiar with handling these cases in Federal Court to fight for you.See question
I have a review hearing today at 1:30pm. Two years ago I was put on a deferred sentence for a DUI. Since then I have been attending alcohol treatment for the past two years, gone to my aa meetings, and haven't failed any drug tests.. My la...
The first thing I need is some clarification. Was your DUI for alcohol or for drugs? If this review hearing is for an alleged violation, did they find ETOH (alcohol) or did they find drugs? If alcohol, then hand sanitizer could provide a false reading. My research indicates that it would likely need to be a large amount and not a swipe of it on your hands. Did they get a level of alcohol or just evidence of its presence? Did they run a confirming test? Did they draw blood to verify and to quantify the claimed alcohol? Did you go get your own test done to disprove the allegation? Additionally, if you were in treatment for two years why haven't you comleted it? They are two years in duration at most. If this is a Deferred Prosecution rather than a Deferred sentence then no alcohol is permitted. A competent attorney can handle this. Hire one.See question
My now EX boy friend whom I DID live with was recently caught stealing Hydrocodone at the pharmacy I work at. He had worked for a seperate company who shared the same store front with the pharmacy. Although not allowed in offices he still managed ...
Do not wait until you are charged to protect yourself. Hire an attorney now to do the investigation into your situation. The attorney is a barrier to the government obtaining evidence that can be used against you. Also, if you are working in a pharmacy I suspect you have some level of license to do so. I am currently defending an action to revoke the license of someone who is alleged to have been involved in theft of drugs. The investigation can lead to unexpected consequences in other areas.See question
he was arrested at our home and released without bail the next day. he plead not guilty and hearing is in 2 weeks
Unfortunately, you are not able to "drop" the charge. The prosecuting authority files a criminal charge and is the one who decides whether to drop (dismiss) a criminal charge. What you can do to help your husband is to hire him a qualified attorney to represent him. If he is convicted of a Domestic Violence offense he will carry the label as a "DV Perpetrator". This has ramifications of mandatory treatment for violence, anger, alcohol, drugs and mental health. Jail time is also available to the court. A DV designation can affect his ability to rent/buy a home as well as participate in activities with children. Be sure to find out if there is a No Contact Order which will likely prevent hiim from having contact with you or from coming home. He needs an attorney!See question
there is no details
Your description of your problem raises many worrisome issues. Lewd conduct could be as slight as urinating in public but it could include conduct that could label you as a sex offender. Without the details no attorney can answer your question with more specifics. You need an attorney. The attorney will know what to do about protecting you from the charges the government is bringing against you. The attorney will be able to get information without making statements to the police, the prosecutor or the courts which could be used against you. Hire an attorney immediately.See question
My boyfriend and I argued I was drunk and hit jim dont remember what happened, told the police he hit me and strangles me but its not true, cops came later that afternoon &&took pic. Without my permission I dont want him togo to jail for my mistakes
First, if your boyfriend is arrested or charged or will be charged, he needs to get an attorney immediately. He needs to start gathering evidence to defend himself against the charges. The fact that you are willing to tell the truth will help but many prosecutors will not believe you and will claim that your "recanting" of your report to the police is a symptom of a DV pattern. Also, you need to get an attorney as you are admitting to providing false information to the police. This may lead to charges being filed against you.See question
I am fight my second Dui for the past year and a half, they have not offered me anything except the same thing, my current lawyer is a public defender and has done nothing for me, except maybe get it dropped down to a neg driving with 5 years prob...
Each of us attorneys are wondering why you are getting a reduction to Negligent Driving. This suggests there are serious problems with your case. The prosecuting authority is not in the business of reducing charges, especially where there is a prior offense. You must also be wary because you may likely be on probation for the first DUI and not realize it. That judge likely took five years of jurisdiction and this reduction would violate the terms of probation. It may be worth your time and money to hire an attorney to review the facts of this case prior to your agreement to the plea and sentence. Additionaly, a new law may add Ignition Interlock Device time from the Department of Licensing.See question
shortly after i moved to texas, causing me not to be able to fallow up on some fines and classes. i recently moved back to washington so i can take care of this. i am going to the clerks office tomorrow. will i be loking at jail time.
For God's sake, do not go to the clerk's office tomorrow. You could be taken into custody on the spot without a good explanation for your failures to comply. Contact an attorney. We know which courts take what types of actions. We know what they will want to see from you. The attorney can protect you and eliminate or reduce the consequences for failure to comply.See question
