What can i do to fight a wrongful DUI? Littering to a DUI?
My girlfriend was pulled over for littering(cigarette), told police she had 2 beers earlier (few hours prior) passed field sobr. Test but refused breathalyzer thinking it could be false reading so they didn’t do chemical test, definitely wasn’t drunk, found a grinder in her car with potentially a small crumb size of marijuana maybe, if that big. DUI? is there something to why she was continually being tested. No record, never even smelled of alcohol or police didn’t say. Says she passed an initial breathalyzer but refused state so immediately DUI and off to jail. After passing field sobriety tests too. How can we fight the DUI? She definitely wasn’t over the limit.
You and she absolutely can't fight this without an attorney. Hopefully, she sees how stupid she was for littering....
