Legal Answers
5 Questions Answered

Q. How many times can you get a DUI in Kentucky before you lose your license?
A: Do you mean permanently? The Transportation Cabinet can move to revoke your driving privileges permanently under KRS 186.570. You would be entitled to a hearing to put on your defense, of course, and in my experience that provision is fairly rarely exercised. For example if it determines that "a person is a habitually reckless or negligent driver of a motor vehicle or has committed a serious violation of the motor vehicle laws." 186.570(d). Hope this answers your question better.
Q. Can I be convicted for both a DUI charge and for a refusal to submit to a breath test?
A: Yes. The first is a charge for operating a motor vehicle under the influence under KRS 189A.010. The second is a an implied consent violation under KRS 189A.103.
Q. Does kentucky law allow dui school online if i'm from another state
A: Kentucky does not allow you to take classes online anywhere in the country. However, you can take classes in a facility out-of-state that the Kentucky courts have approved of and have that count towards your requirement.
Q. Do need an attorney for a Formal DUI Arraignment
A: You never "need" an attorney for any court proceeding. You can always proceed "pro se" and thus represent yourself. The question is -- is it recommended? I would highly discourage you from going to court on your own. You do not know the process and the prosecutor may give you incomplete information (as you may not know what questions to ask and they will use your lack of knowledge to their advantage.) Speak to an experienced DUI attorney in PA to help you with your case.
Q. Can I ask for more time when I show up for my ACD court date?
A: As long as you can show proof to the court/prosecutor that you are currently in compliance with the court's order, and there is no violation (e.g. missing class dates, etc.) then there should be no problem asking the court for additional time to complete your classes. You will simply get a new court date. If you are still worried to go it alone, hire an attorney in your area to help you (or use the services of an attorney you have previously used in your case.) Good luck to you.
