Legal Answers
6 Questions Answered

Q. Is there a statute of limitations on DUI Charges?
A: Yes, for most misdemeanor charges the statute of limitation is one year. However, if your charge is a potential felony DUI, the State would have three years to file (in Nevada).
Q. Car accident, I was dui tested but the other driver was not. Is that right or should she have been tested as well?
A: No, they would only elevate a traffic accident investigation to a DUI investigation if they had independent grounds to suspect you of DUI. They must not have suspected the other driver of DUI or they would have investigated and potentially arrested him/her. I have represented many clients for DUI that were stopped at a red light and got rear-ended by another driver. You "got the DUI test" because law enforcement suspected you of DUI, not because you were suspected of causing an accident.
Q. in Nevada, wht happens to someone who committed one domestic battery within 7 yr period & failed to complete classes?
A: The individual is subject to his sentence terms. Was there a suspended sentence? If not, the individual is subject to the Court's contempt power (up to $500 in fines and up to 25 days in jail).
Q. What is the statue of limitations for a domestic violence misdemeanor case in the state of Nevada
A: One year.
Q. In a domestic violence situation can they make the spouse talk if she isn’t wanting to go forward with the case?
A: They ("the Court") can subpoena her to trial. If she is properly served and fails to appear they can hold her in contempt for not appearing or they can issue a "material witness warrant" for her arrest. Yes, they can arrest her and hold her until she testifies. However, I do not believe the foregoing answers your question. First, her wish that the prosecution not "go forward" is irrelevant. The plaintiff in a criminal domestic violence prosecution is the government, not the victim. In fact, most DV victims do not wish to see the defendant prosecuted (especially after the incident in question). Next, nobody can "make" anybody "talk." If she obeys the subpoena and appears but refuses to answer any questions, she will only be subjecting herself to the Court's contempt power (up to $500 in fines and 25 days in jail). Think of Barry Bonds and Greg Anderson's refusal to testify in the BALCO case. The prosecution can use any prior statement she made to impeach her and/or charge her with perjury if she changes her sworn statement (or charge her with filing a false police report). However, is she simply shows and refuses to testify she only faces contempt charges.
Q. Dui court tomorrow, no $ yet.Do I go? Don't wanna go to jail & miss my dream job I got. Barely got off the streets
A: Absolutely you need to go. If you don't appear the Court will issue a bench warrant for your arrest so you will most likely end up losing your "dream job" anyway. If you hire an attorney, he or she can appear at your arraignment on your behalf. Meaning you would not have to appear. However, given your apparent time constraints, you should appear. If you do not appear, assume a warrant was issued and hire an attorney right away to quash your warrant.
