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...

Was my case in violation of the 5th Amendment?
So I was in a wreck where I should have gotten a DUI but instead I was charged with "Wreckless Driving", and the case was adjudicated because I went to traffic school. A year and four months later the state came back and filled charges for a DUI with a year old DUI evidence with a sample my blood. I went though the case and fought it for a year and was found guilty. I have been on probation for four and half months now. All together I want to know that since both cases were for the same offense, are they technically in violation of my fifth amendment? Also what would be the process to get this started in getting this removed? Also please keep in mind that this happened in Polk County in Florida.
Reckless Driving and DUI are two separate offenses, each with different elements, so I don't think that a Double...
