3rd dui, not in possession of keys or in the vehicle
Don't remember being arrested or speaking to police, only leaving a bar and then being in the police car. My car was wrecked (one vehicle collision) and the airbags deployed. I was arrested at a store next to the wreck, where apparently I had gone for help. A witness there said police approached me asking if I had wrecked my car. The witness said I seemed confused - that I did not admit to driving and didn't seem to be aware of what happened or where my car was while she was present. The affidavit says I admitted to driving and wrecking. I declined breathalyzer, blood was 0.21. My keys were not on me when arrested (they were in my pocketbook inside of the store, where I later retrieved them). I am currently interviewing attorneys. A few have said to go to rehab. I am hoping to fight this, as I was not in the vehicle or in possession of the keys. I would like to view the video to see how my confession came about. Even if I did admit, could I have had a concussion with the airbag deploying? They did not examine me when taking blood, just bandaged my arm. The witness also states that they began questioning me before I was arrested and read my rights. Thoughts on fighting
You have kind of a buffet of arguments. That requires a lawyer you trust to know which card to play when. The last...

How can I fight this
I got a dui for marijuana in my system when I wasn't high, 1 week later marijuana was decriminalized. How can I fight this in court?
Decriminalization is a separate issue from the five nanogram law passed for dui. Hire a lawyer who practices DUI law there.
Is he legally allowed to kick me out because of my inability to pay/work schedule conflict?
I received a DUI in January 2015. I was cited for my registration light being out and the officer said he smelt alcohol. I refused to blow so he had me do a field sobriety test. I failed and was taken into custody where a blew a .116. The court ordered supervision for 24 months, completion of a victim impact panel, a DUI evaluation with completion of recommended treatment, and all fines and fees paid in 2 years. When I got the evaluation done, the computer evaluated me as low risk but the director of the facility interviewed me and concluded that I was high risk. He asked me a few questions and every time I answered them he would change my answer just a little bit. I have been trying to attend the classes in order to fufill the 75 hours that they ordered me to do, but I am having a lot of financial issues and every class is $50. Not only that, but I work second shift and the classes are scheduled during the time that I work. Now the director is saying he is going to kick me out of the classes for resisting treatment. The reality is I'm not resisting, I go when I am financially able to and I don't have to work, but often time this is only once a month.
Yes, you can be removed from the program if you do not attend regularly for whatever reason. If you are having...

The first I had a CDL but was not in a truck. The second I didn't have a CDL. I volunteered a breath test on both. Have done all my councilng.
