Can I get the dui charged dismissed
I'm a military member. I arrived at the golf course on post early to play golf. Got out of the car to set up my gear and had a couple shots from a flask outside of the vehicle. Got back in the car and turned the heater a little later while still waiting to play. MPs did a 'safety check' . Blew a .17 and was charred with a dui even though I had no intent to drive. Is it possible to fight this? If so, how?
Contact a local DUI attorney to see if your case can be fought.
Can a felony dui be reduced to a misdemeanor dui or wet reckless charge?
i recently was charged with a 3rd dui in ten years making it a felony. the first of the 2 prior convictions only fell within the 10 year mark by 24 days. additionally the arresting date of the first conviction was outside of the 10 year mark of the most recent arresting date. i'm looking to get the felony dui charge reduced to a misdemeanor dui charge or a wet reckless charge in a plea bargain. is that possible?
Sure is possible with the prosecutor's blessing. probable who knows?

There are no guarantees with entry especially if there is a criminal charge pending.
My car is totaled, I have been getting chiropractic treatments for my neck and shoulder. Long story short, I was in a desperate situation with no vehicle and a short timeline to pay off the remaining balance on my auto loan. I accepted what I thought was a decent settlement. I signed yesterday, come today, I find out I have a labral tear. Is there any way for me to get out of the settlement? Any advice is appreciated.
Probably not but contact your attorney if you had one and you should have had one in the first place. No attorney...
Is it important to have a lawyer present for arraignment in the circumstances described below?
Blake (23) is working at Pederson Pt AK. He went to Fishtival in Naknek with a group driven by a designated driver. Vehicle got stuck on return. He was the only guy, and the driver couldn't free the vehicle. He got in drivers seat to free it. Police came. He had not moved the vehicle, but was arrested for DUI. He and the designated driver were tested. He passed all but breathalyzer, the designated driver did pass all. The officer disregarded the driver and passenger statements. My daughter recorded his arrest. With statements and witnesses supporting that he did not move the vehicle, he is still facing DUI charges. His boss helped him contact a lawyer from Bethel, that says the law is not in his favor and implied that his $5000.00 retainer is not worth paying.
Blake was only trying to free the vehicle. He is a very responsible young man, has lost friends to drinking and driving, is always the one people call when they need a ride. He would NEVER drink and drive. I'm not just saying this because I'm his mom. He has been through a lot and helped so many people. He doesn't deserve this. Please someone fight for him!

I was rear ended by a drunk driver who was operating a vehicle on a revoked license.
I previously discovered that he was convicted 2 years ago for DUI, his fines were pretty high, leading me to believe it wasn't his first time. My car is totaled, from the whip lash , I have been suffering neck and shoulder pain. What is a reasonable settlement offer in this case? I just want the insurance company to be fair and act in good faith. I really would like to settle this on my own if possible, but If the adjuster isn't willing to play nice, I have no choice but to obtain an attorney.
This ended up in the criminal defense forum and it is not that. You need to consult with a personal injury attorney...
