What are my options in this situation? Was this arrest even legal, given the fact my disability was ignored?
First DUI. I was pulled over for speeding (cruise control set to 61mph in a 60. Trooper said I was doing 96mph!) I informed the trooper I have a neurological disability that affects muscle tone after he said my speech was slurred, but ignored the medical ID bracelet I presented. He then asked me to step out of the car for the voluntary field sobriety test and I politely refused on the grounds of my disability. That's when he decided to place me under arrest. After reading my Miranda rights, I consented to a breath test and was under the legal limit. My car was impounded and he ordered a warrant for a blood test, then took me home afterward. I wasn't issued ANY ticket or citation. My documented disability (had my doctor fill out a form for DOL so I could get a license) was ignored and I wasn't intoxicated. No charges have even been filed yet.

Pulled over for DUI, but breath test was invalid.
I was pulled over for suspicion of DUI last night. After the field sobriety test, the officer took me in. However, the breath test administered came back as invalid.

How much time will I likely be looking at for guilty plea on 2nd DUI. Who, where, how do I respond to regarding the divorce ?
I had an in depth explanation until I found out there is a limit. Long story short. Arrested 07/07 on multiple charges including DUI refusal. Pled in 08 to DUI over .08 or whatever. Only DUI and never taken deferral. 1 other criminal driving conviction, DWLS 3rd Deg in 07. Planned to retain attorney and seek a dismissal. That was until I was blindsided with divorce while in voluntary inpatient. Wife has wealthy parents and is out for blood. I am not so fortunate. Any and all money I have has been taken. She has sold all assets for payoffs and forfeited all equity. Home I have been paying mortgage on is in father in laws name and has 100k equity. Recently served restraining order on behalf of wife, child and residence. I am now broke, jobless, homeless, and familyless. I am in the streets and fighting to see my 18 mo. old daughter. I am now considering pleading guilty and taking full sentence in order to reduce one more thing on my plate so I can focus on custody of my daughter I have not seen in over 90 days. For the sake of my questions, my criminal history consists of no felonies, a MIP, disorderly, 3rd degree assault, trespassing, obstruction, DUI, DWLS, all 07 or older.
First you need to apply for and get a court appointed attorney. Pleading guilty will NOT "reduce one more thing on [...
