Can I get an attorney appointed to me by the court for a misdemeanor DUI, public drunk, failure to comply and using profanity?
I was sitting in my vehicle on a rural country road talking to my elderly mom at 7:44 pm when a cop pulled up behind me and got out of his vehicle and came up to my truck and ask me to step out, put my hands on the hood, then patted me down, took me to jail (he said), for public drunk. When I got to the jail and I verbally protested his action(s), he then trumped up the charges, DUI, failure to comply (what), using profanity on a public Road? All I did was protest being arrested because I was not drinking alcohol, only sprite, I was not driving, only sitting, the vehicle was not even running. They took me to the jail and they stripped search me, they put me in a holding cell until next day. They taped a ticket up on the cell glass door that showed a DUI charge.
I would advise hiring an attorney. While it is an expense, it is worth it in the long run. Many municipalities will...
Would I still be able to have my open container ticket expunged? What about my DUI in KY?
I got an open container ticket this past weekend in oxford, MS. I am from Kentucky and have a DUI in the state. Could I still have my DUI expunged if my open container ticket can be expunged?
It depends on the state. Not every state 'expunges'. In NY, for example, there is no remedy of expungement. The best...

Taken to station because police wanted to give me a DUI. Blew 000 and charged with careless driving. Was I technically arrested?
The other night, I was pulled over driving some friends home from a party. The cop said he smelled alcohol from the car, and I explained it was probably coming from my friends being that they were at a college party. He asked me to blow a field breathalyzer, which I refused. I took the field sobriety test and was told I failed. They put me in handcuffs and took me to the station. After blowing a 0.00, they put me in a jail cell, took my fingerprints, a mugshot, and gave me a careless driving ticket. I have a few questions. 1, was I arrested? They took me to the station believing I was going to get a DUI but since I was sober was I arrested for careless driving or not arrested at all? 2. I took an online driving course and got the ticket expunged, will my arrest record still be on file for federal agencies? Thank you
Yes, you were arrested. As to whether your arrest record will be visible by federal agencies, the answer depends upon...
Is driving when taking a daily prescrip of adderall for ADHD a DUI? Without treatment u will have a distracted driver.
I'd be a distracted and dangerous driver. One could compare past driving record to now and see no wrecks or tickets in recent years. I would think distracted driving is more dangerous. It's not like 20 mg makes me high. I still suffer exhausted fatigue anyway even taking it. The dopamine affect is also to treat fibromyalgia, speaking of which, pain and fatigue can be distracting too. Very much so. That's why my doctor wouldn't let me work the hospital cause pain is very distracting.
Driving while under the influence of a prescription drug can be DUI. If your doctor understands you will drive with...
