Can blood test taken in the ER expire after sitting in lab for 2 mos, can that affect the BAC results? What is expiration date?
I am being charged with a DUI for blowing .17. First offense, never been in handcuffs in my life, perfect background. I'm going to higher a lawyer. However, I had 3 glasses of wine over 6 1/2 hours between the blood test and my first glass. With the glasses being equally spaced out. The officer claimed I failed the roadside. He says I was slurring (I assured him I wasn't, I am told quite often I mumble or am hard to understand because of all the metal in my mouth due to an accident). He says my leg was shaky when I was holding one leg up, but I do yoga, and I always shake trying to hold one leg up. So I refused to blow and asked for a blood test, quite confident it would come back under. I was pretty surprised and upset it came back so high. They took 2 months to test it, the lab was so backed up. All I can think is I was celebrating finishing a year long organic vegan cleanse to reverse PCOS, and had a lot of GMO's and meat that day that I haven't eaten in a year. Can an insulin resistant disease affect Blood alcohol levels if I was eating food my body doesn't ingest, that is bad for it? Can anxiety from PTSD from flashing lights alter my BAC if I was about to go into a panic?
You still blew a .17, they don't "need" the Blood BAC to convict you. If this is first offense, odds are you will be...
Witnessed a DUI accident, victims want to talk to me. Should I? 5 months after accident.
Witnessed a DUI on a blizzard. Victims rolled there car down in a embankment. If I did not see them no one would have. It was 18 degrees and had already snowed 12" and still snowing very hard. I went down and rescued them. The car was upside down top crushed but was able to open back hatch. After a few the police arrived. I gave the report and left the scene. Now almost 5 months later a private detective contacted me, I declined to talk said I gave report that's all need to be said. Now victims are calling me trying to meet them to talk. One called me last night at 1:00 am drunk asking to talk! Should I talk? I don't want to, seems weird and don't want to be part of it. I saved them gave report that's it. What should I do? Oh here's the kicker there kid is in my sons day care class!
single car dui? Or hit and run? Justice, integrity, and morality are supported and created by the will of a community....
My husband is on a DUI probation, with permission to go to Mexico. Any issues with entry to Mx. or return to the states?
I know he can't drive. It is a deferred sentence, misdemeanor charge. His probation officer has given him permission for the trip. He does not have to do breath or AU testing.
As long as two conditions are met: (1) NOTHING in the deferred agreement prohibits him from leaving the USA, and (...
No finger prints or picture was taken when I was in custody at the station. Is this even legal during a DUI arrest?
Also, they didn't post a bail for me or put me in a holding cell. They made me do a breathalyzer test twice and didn't ask me any questions. They then pursued to let me out bail free and gave me a ride home from about 11 miles out. It was a state trooper so he didn't leave his jurisdiction, but did make my roommate sign a release form for 8 hours stating it was their responsibility to watch over me. He also confiscated my license and gave me a paper to take to the DMV where I would get an extended paper license until my court hearing.
What you described is, for the most part, pretty typical. They ride home is a bit unusual but not unheard of. None of...
I blew zeros after a two hour booking process and opting for a blood test after being arrested for suspicion of DUI.
If my blood tests come back with a zero BAC can I sue the police officer for anything? specifically defamation of character and emotional distress
You can sue anyone for anything at any time. Can you win? Unless you prove that the officer believed that you were...
Will the Colorado DMV arrest me if I apply for a state ID with an outstanding warrant for DUI?
I know I need to take care of the charge, I intend to do so, I just need a job to pay an attorney, and an ID to get a job, crazy
No. Only contact with a police offer will cause you to be arrested. The DMV will not know if the warrant is an arrest...
I was recently charged with a DUI. After the trooper dropped me off at home he failed to give me a ticket? what do I do?
When i was in the police station he gave me a breathalyzer and then asked if I wanted a ride home. The trooper gave me a ride home from about 11 miles out and gave me an "express consent affidavit and notice of revocation" paper. He also made my girlfriend sign a release form for 8 hours to watch over me. He gave me a "proof of service" notice and made me sign it saying I won't drive during these 8 hours. The thing he failed to give me was a ticket stating what I was charged with. I remember him telling me I was charged with a DUI, obviously, and reckless driving. I just think it's a bit fishy I didn't receive a ticket with the charges and court date on it. What do I do? Should I call the station and ask for my court date or can I use this in my defense?
Interesting screw up by the state trooper. So, he gave you everything that pertained to the DMV suspension, but not...
