DUI and DWUI with a blood alcohol content of .089 and the officer didn't read me my rights. Do I stand a chance of getting off?
Last night I was stopped for speeding, doing a 39 in a 30. The officer asked if I was drinking I said the truth and replied with what I had and only 4-5 beers. Which I only had 5 beers and the last one being 10 minute before being pulled over.I was completely aware of everything and was being as truthful and friendly as possible with the officer. I did all the sobriety tests and was very nervous and scared cause this is my first time ever being in this situation. He asked if I wanted to take the breathalyzer and at this point I was even more nervous so I agreed. I blew a .089 and got put in cuffs but he never read me my rights. Then I was scared and when he asked if I wanted to take the test again at the station I refused. Do I have a good case of getting off & not have this on my record?

Can I wait out a suspension imposed by the Maryland Medical Advisory Board?
I have a 3 year alcohol restriction and a Interlock device. I have violated those terms and have had the Interlock device uninstalled. My License is currently suspended. It doesn't give me an end date. Can I out wait the suspension or would I have to complete a 90 day alcohol treatment program? The only problem is to be enrolled in the program I would need some type of license allowing me to drive myself to and from the program. Is this unheard of?
The best advice I can give you is to contact an attorney who handles DUI cases and set up a consultation as soon as you...
What is the possible outcome of an interesting circumstance regarding VOP?
I am currently on probation for my second DUI which took place January of 2013. My supervised probation terms conclude May 2016. I recently had an encounter with an Ocean City police officer wherein he wrote an email to my probation officer stating I was highly intoxicated outside of a bar in Ocean City. I was not charged with anything at all. He just apparently wanted to bring it to her attention. Mind you, I have completed successfully the SCRAM program 2 years ago and treatment for mental and addiction 1 year ago. In this time I have gotten married, most recently had a child whom is 3 months old. I was out for a friend's birthday, officer approached me sitting on a bench while I was waiting for my husband to pick me up.
Absolutely no way to an competent attorney to answer this in this limited forum. You're going to have to sit down with...

My boyfriend got a DUI last year. He was giving 3 years of supervised PBJ, along with 1 year of suspended jail time, and had to serve 14 days. He recently moved and missed a probation appointment. Got arrested a few days later, decided not to post bail, and has been in jail since Oct 6th. His VOP hearing is Dec 4th. What are the chances of him getting out? I know this is his first VOP and he has followed every condition of his probation.
His chances of getting out depend on the judge, his reason for not reporting, and other factors. Since he has been...
Have a few questions. If I get a PBJ for a DUI (1st offense) is it common practice to have to report to an officer?
Have a few questions. If I get a PBJ for a DUI (1st offense) is it common practice to have to report to an officer? If so how often? Also am I allowed to vacation out of the country with a PBJ? Please feel free to offer any other advice. I have never been stopped or convicted of anything in my entire 30 years of driving, I have no other record. Thank you in Advance.
In granting a PBJ, the judge will strike out a driver’s guilty plea or judgment and place the driver on a period of...
What outcomes to expect for a second DUI in Maryland when my first case received PBJ?
PBJ was > 25 years ago No accident, no children in car Field tests: officer didn't like glassy eyes during eye test, smell of breath. Did OK on heel to toe, one leg and backward counting. Took breath test; blew a 0.12 Signed up for alcohol classes 3 days after incident, requested hearing from MVA Sick spouse in the vehicle (original driver) led to my driving (not my car nor slated to drive) to get spouse home and, secondarily, the traffic stop The biggest question that I am getting mixed responses on is the quarter century old PBJ, responses from attorneys and state police I have spoken to ranging from it will be treated like it happened in the past few years to it won't be considered. I know this is judge dependent but looking for experienced opinion.
Although you are technically eligible for another PBJ, I wouldn't count on it. The advice you have already received is...
Can I drive a boat while still having restricted license even though a license is not required for boating?
I refused a breathalyzer test in Maryland and now been penalized with the Ignition interlock Device for 1 year from MVA. Received PBJ on the criminal proceedings; no conditions except class. Never challenged the MVA penalty.
You run the risk that you if charged with operating under the influence, the Court would impose jail time, the...
