I have no license due to DUI. I drove the other night but before I got out of my neighborhood on the highway a license check
I came to the end of my street, the trooper approached the car and asked how I was and I said fine, I am going to go get a pack of cigs before the store closes, but I need to go back home and get my license. About 10-15 minutes later the troopers disbanded the roadblock and the troper knocked at my door asking me to produce a license, I had none. He then said he smelled alcohol on my breath and asked me to do sobriety tests in my driveway. He arrested me for dui, took me to jail and took my blood. What if I was scared that I actually got out of the roadblock, had a few shots at home immediately? Do i have a defense? Can he prove I was intoxicated or suspicious that I was at the checkpoint (never actually went through it) He allowed me to turn around and drive home and came by 15 min later
He didn't smell alcohol when he stopped you. he smelled alcohol later at your house. You went home and drank. This is...

Second DWI offense. NEED HELP PLEASE.
This past October I had feel asleep at the wheel which caused me to blow through the busiest intersection in my town. When asleep I had pushed the gas harder causing me to speed up to 65mph. I awoke after a heard horns, then was t boned by another vehicle.This ended in a serious 6 car wreck. alcohol tests were not administered on site or at the hospital. After I got home I had started drinking then the officer questioned me. I was still in a state of shock at the time and he put that I plead guilty for a DWI. Altogether I am charged with DWI/revoked license, reckless driving, running a red light, and speeding( 65 in a 45). Also I am on supervised probation but this incident didn't occur during my probation. What all am I looking at here?
You are looking at potentially quite a bit of time in jail or even prison, depending upon the injuries to the other...

It depends upon the facts. If it was just one criminal episode, and there is a separate ticket, the state might be able...
