What if i change my mind the day after accepting a plea deal on a 1st offense dui bac(.08) and decide for court to hear the case
3-14-17 I accepted a plea deal with my lawyer and the prosecutor for a 1st offense dui (bac .08) because of pressure from my lawyer. I have changed my mind today and want the court to hear the case, can i do that? It was a police checkpoint, i was very cooperative and completely honest. The lawyer said the officer lobbied to have the charge reduced and the prosecutor refused. The outcome was 1 year suspension of license, Ignition interlock device, asap program, 90 days jail with 90 days suspended and 3 years probation, and $500 fine with $250 suspended. My lawyer said even if were reduced to a less charge, i would still have to do all the programs(asap, ignition interlock device) and the judge could also impose the jail time if we go to court.
You would have to file a motion immediately to allow rhetoric withdrawal of your guilty plea and have it reset for...

Can a dui charge hold for .07 bac? Williamsburg Va
was arrested blowing a .099 on scene ( officer said that couldnt be held against me in court as only the one at the station would count.) At the station I blew .07 but was still arrested and charged. Now I have to spend money to hire a lawyer even though I was below legal limit. Can I get this thrown out? I dont want it on my record. I am 145 lbs and had one drink on an empty stomach about an hour prior. The officer, who was in the parking lot of the bar, followed me out of the parking lot to the 7/11next door to thebar. He approached me for a brake light issue as I got out of my car at 7-11 parking lot. Can a .07 stick? Can I get this dismissed? Do I have to hire an attorney? seems wrong I should have to pay to dismiss a charge when under legal limit.

Can an officer enter, possess and operate your vehicle without your consent.
Upon deciding to arrest me and placing in the patrol car, the officer told my friend to exit my vehicle and then the officer took possession of my vehicle and drove my car to another point in the parking lot to move it to a new space. He would not allow my sober passenger to move the car and did not attempt to have it towed. He simply took my keys, entered my car and operated my vehicle without my permission or without asking for my permission. I never authorized him to enter my vehicle or to take possession of and/or operate my vehicle at any time. Was he within riights to do this rather than having my friend move the car, leave it there or have it towed?
It is common for the police to do this. It is even more common for them to make your passenger get out and then have...
DUI ?
The city of Newport News Va , I ended up getting a not to bright lawer he didn't know if the prosecutor could not provide full Discovery he can ask for a dismissal but my problem is they didn't give me the whole video of my Sobriety test and doesn't Newport News have a local law that you have to get to your discovery and evidence 15 days before the court date ?
You get the attorney you pay for. If discovery is late that is grounds to continue. No judge would deny more time to...
I received a DUI in Toano but I was not breathalyzed, what do I do now?
I was pulled over and given a field sobriety test, but I was not administered a breathalyzer test. I feel that I should have passed the test. I was then arrested for a DUI. This is my first DUI and I'm scared for the outcome. I don't want this to stay on my record. Is it possible to get a DUI removed from your record? What should I do next?
You can either win your case at trial or have the dui amended to another charge. Either way, you will need to hire a...
DUI - Was this probable cause?
My husband was pulled over for going 37 in a 55. The speed limit had just changed - half a mile. He had been in his car with the license and registration for a good minute when the lights started bothering my husband, he opened his door and asked if the officer could possibly turn off his lights. He then looked at his eyes and gave him a breathalyzer, which he blew a 0.18. This is the first time my husband has ever been in any trouble. The officer never read him his rights, which I understand isn't always necessary. But he also never told him he had the right to an attorney, or anything. My question is this - was this indeed probable cause to pull us over? I felt that half a mile after the speed limit increase isn't much time to accelerate, and he was going 37, which obviously means that he was accelerating. The officer may have even turned his lights on before the speed limit change. Also, does the fact that my husband has severe acid reflux (which can cause a higher bac) help us any?
The officer does not need probable cause, merely reasonable suspicion. Driving slowly can be grounds for a traffic...
