I had a wreck and am prescribed medication no other person was in the vehicle and no one saw the wreck
But someone told the officer they witnessed the wreck so he drew blood at the hospital now I did take my medicine shortly after the wreck due to my severe pain n I told the cop this. The van had a machinal issue that caused the wreck so how do I prove that no one saw the accident. My van was totaled due to the break callapper locking up causing the wreck no property damage only damage was to my vehicle now three n a half months later the cop comes and picks me up and charges me with a dui the officer charged me with careless driving the night of the wreck and I had already paid for it. How should I handle this.

Will I be charged with dui?
I was involved in a single car accident where I totaled my truck and they are not charging me for any property damage. I don't remember hours before the wreck or hours after. I was told that I let them take a blood sample and there were cops present. I was in and out within an hour. Very lucky and blessed to be alive. The cops let me leave in good well being and I have not heard anything in two weeks. my insurance adjuster informed me that my alcohol test is still pending. Is there any way I could request to keep my medical information private and have the sheriffs office speina the court to get them? And also what can they still do? Am I likely to be charged?
You are indeed very lucky and blessed. You will most likely receive notice of the state attorney's office intent to...
Can my daughter who has a DUI in Illinois move to Florida?
When my daughter was 18 she got a DUI. About 8 years later she got a 2nd DUI. Both were in Illinois. She is now 27 lives in Illinois and is below poverty level. My husband and I are semi-retired. We've heard that it costs thousands. It breaks my heart, I am not in the position to help that way. If she moved here, at least we could make sure she had a place to live, and we could get her to work. Please help us.
This is not a family law question, nor is it really a question appropriate for Florida. You would want to repost it in...
