Is it still a refusal if the officer changes his mind and gives the test- too late?
2/20/17 - Time Sensitive - I refused roadside breath test. At the jail, I didn't understand chemical test explanation and couldn't make up my mind between breath and blood. I was deemed non -cooperative and a refusal. Later, the officer allowed me to take the breath test, but it was 2:24 minutes after arrest (@.081), due . The officer then claimed I refused the test in his report. Is this grounds for reinstatement? Or at least, can the DMV officer rule that it wasn't a refusal, but was a DUI? Please help. My hearing is the day after tomorrow and my attorney sucks.
You must cooperate with testing such that the test can be completed within 2 hours of the time of driving. The...
Can I receive a DUI in the mail?
A week ago I was pulled over for not having a front license plate. The officer asked if I had been drinking to which I responded I had a beer. He asked me to do a field sobriety test. After I took it, he said I had failed but did not say why, he also gave me a breathalyzer but did not say what I blew. At first, they said I need to get a ride home but then another officer then asked me when I graduate college to which I said next May. The officer then asked me to go to my car while the two spoke. They told me I would leave my car there and then they would be taking me home. On the ride home, the officer told me he could decide to press charges but then when I got out of the car he said "see not all cops are pigs". Should I be expecting a DUI in the mail or did the officer simply let me go and I got extremely lucky to say the least?
From what you post, sounds like you were lucky and No, you should not be expecting a DUI in the mail. You more than...

How do I sue Colorado methadone clinics for cutting costs at the price of patient dignity?
Colorado's methadone program is a screaming human rights violation. They have a giant hole in the wall where they watch you in the bathroom (mind you this is not court mandated.) We patients in recovery deserve our privacy just as much as everyone else in this country, and the fact that we are being denied privacy in the bathroom is in fact, extremely counter productive to actually healing. I understand that they do this because they don't feel they can trust us to be honest about our urine samples, however, there are hundreds of ways to test for adulterated urine in the lab without violating anyone's dignity...but see that would cost them a lot more money to get that testing done than to cut a one time whole in the wall. So where is the outrage? It's right here. You just don't hear about it because the methadone program is one GIANT hostage situation. When you become opioid dependent, especially on methadone, it's not only possibly but likely that you would suffer a horrifying death if denied your medication. Which means that every single paper, every single agreement that any methadone patient has ever signed in a clinic, was signed under duress. Who can help us get justice?
Resource constraints are a limiting factor in every action taken by government (Fed, State, or Local) or private...
DUI non alcohol based on speech with history of previous traumatic brain injury.
The charge is DUI, reasonable doubt was established entirely upon speech. The officer was informed of a previous traumatic brain injury which effected speech. The arresting officer requested a blood test which was declined. A road side sobriety was offered, but the officer declined. Medical history detailing the speech issue is available. Did the officer overstep his authority in establishing reasonable doubt, resulting in the arrest. Is this a possible 4th amendment violation?
There is a potential issue for probable cause but you haven't provided enough facts. The best thing to do is to set up...

If I move from CA to CO, will a DUI conviction from CA be placed on my CO DMV record?

Will the CO DMV have me jump through extra hoops to get a CO license (like take CO's alcohol class)? (I've listed the question as being asked in the city I'm planning on moving to in order to get the attention of CO attorneys, even though I'm still in CA).
