After any mandatory impoundment, petition the court for return of your vehicle.
I missed a compliance hearing after a DUI.
I paid my fines, took my classes, did my day in jail. I wasn't aware of a compliance hearing and now have been made aware of a bench warrant. What can I expect if/when I turn myself in?
That is a question for your attorney. Anytime you violate the terms of a sentence the judge can impose any of the...
I was pulled over for traveling 46 MPH at night, in rain, on highway with posted maximum speed of 60MPH. Is that lawful?
I am facing a 2nd DUI, I did not refuse a breath test and the test resulted in a BAC 2 1/2 times the legal limit. I was pulled over for traveling 46 MPH at night, in rain, on a state highway with posted maximum speed of 60MPH. Do I have a leg to stand on in questioning whether it was lawful for me to be pulled over in the first place?
Generally a person can operate a vehicle at under the posted speed limit if the vehicle operation is not impeding the...

I need my dui reduced to reckless driving
I blew .14 Went to my first hearing and the prosecutor offered me the min fine and only on day in jail I went for my alcohol assessment me I was told I had 0 of the 11 triggers and was told I need to go to just one 8 hour class. I did not hit anyone or anything. I got caught swerving and speeding. What is the likelihood of getting this reduced to reckless driving? What do I need to do to make that happen?
The only way for a reduction to occur is to be represented by an experienced DUI defense attorney who will be able to...
How to find the best DUI representation
Speeding, was pulled over, was offered to walk the line. Due to medical condition and road conditions I explained that no time could I walk a straight line, he then administered an eye test. I informed him the was too bright and directly in my sight so it was hard to see the pen the whole time ( upon speaking to an eye doctor I was told this is called bleaching in the eyes and that most wouldn't be able to see the pen that great) he then said true around under arrest for DUI. I was taken in and held before they gave me a breathalyzer, never told me what I blew and was held for almost 44 hrs before being bailed out. Curios what my outcome looks like
It's impossible to assess what's going to happen here. Do your research. Your situation isn't uncommon whatsoever. It's...
Duii in Oregon with Washington license questions
I got my 1st duii this last weekend while in southern Oregon for work (I was not on the job at the time of duii). I have a regular Washington drivers license. They took me in where I blew a .14 on the meter so they had to hold me. I spent several hours in jail and was bailed out for $750. I am hoping for deferment if possible. The questions I have are as follows. 1. Is there anything I have to do before the 1st court appearence to try and get a deferment? Anyone I should contact besides a outside lawyer. 2. If I do get deferment how would I be able to drive in Washington and Oregon if I am hearing my license may be suspended in both states(WA hears of Oregon state suspension and follows suit)? My job is to drive to Oregon for work 99% of the time. 3. I seen a couple threads where people mentioned a "Administrative hearing ". I tried searching it for duii and it related but could not find much. 4. Any advice also? I know I messed up and I was literally a block and a half away from my hotel. I didn't drink much before this and I think this just sealed the deal on me quitting. Thank you in advance for any and all information.
