I got a DUI but was not behind the wheel when I was arrested but I told cops I was driving I was intoxicated badly though
My car ran hot and I walked to a store to get water from a near by store .The car was undriveable and I was pulled off to the side of road when I walked back to car that's when the highway patrol was there
Your admission if admissible is sufficient to establish the element of driving or control of the motor vehicle....
What should be my next course of action with a scenario such as this?
I rear ended a non moving car in the middle of the road on a state highway in Mississippi. I have smoked marijuana under an hour before the accident and was caught with 2 or less grams of marijuana under the driver seat of the car. I was charged with DUI and possession in a motor vehicle and the driver of the other vehicle was ticketed for not having insurance. There is still minor details that are left but this is the tip of the iceberg. What should be my best step or possibly reaching a lower penalty ,and I am a first time offender to both charges. Plus, I was not told the consequences of refusing to take a urine test to test THC levels and was curious how this and me saying no to the urine test would affect the case.

Will I be able to not be charged with a dui other?
I recently went through a roadblock and the officer said he smelt marijuana. He asked if I had smoked lately and I said I had atleast 5 hours before. He searched my car and didn't find any marijuana Bc I didn't have any but did find an ecstasy pill. I wasn't given any kind of field test or a blood or urine test for the dui but was still written up for it. I know I have a possession of controlled substance for sure but I am confused as to how I can be given a dui other if there is not really any evidence to that besides that I said I had 5+ hours before and I don't believe I was under the influence anymore at the time
The officer will likely testify to "a strong smell of marijuana" coming from your car, and that he observed signs of...
Is a DUI a charge involving alcohol only?

DUI from another state?
I received a DUI in Florida on 12/24/2016, I was at the time a KY resident and valid driver's license holder, I now live in Bay St Louis, Ms, my question is, are the MASEP classes here in Ms, acceptable to KY? I have no intentions of moving back nor obtaining a KY drivers license but I have to meet both FL and KY court orders apparently? I have been sentenced, 6/6/2017, all I have left to do is my classes and evaluation/s? Thank you Dennis Weaver
Call the Kentucky and Florida courts and ask.
Can my insurance legally drop me for being charged with a dwi If I have not yet been to court or convicted?
Did not blow. Woke up at hospital after wreck and went home with dwi ticket in my pocket. I need a new vehicle as I’ve been without over a month and need to get to work but no one will finance me without insurance.
You'll need to go to a different insurance carrier. There are carriers that have high risk policies including SR-22....
What is dui plus other ticket classification?
My daughter got tickets for dui, dui plus other, careless driving all at one time. Had another passenger in car who was beating her up and she wrecked the car, he ran off before police arrived left needles in the car under her seat. Police never looked for him. My daughter was transported to hospital from injuries where he was hitting her in the head and face, car wasn’t hurt just stuck in ditch. Hospital I’m sure done a drug test but no court order that we are aware of at the time (while she was in hospital for several hours) to see if she was impaired. She was released to coustody of police and placed in jail for a few hours, was released to me. She has had a plea hearing and court is set for Jan 2018. The arresting officer no longer works for county police anymore. Is a lawyer needed?
You should get an attorney or at the very least talk to one. It is very possible that you may have a case.
