Can DUI charges get dropped?
My boyfriend an u left a bowling alley Friday night. We got into a fight and pulled into a parking lot literally less then 5 minutes away from the bowling alley. We got out of the car. The engine was off. Keys in pocket and doors shut no one else was in the car. The cops arrived because of us fighting. The witness statement says they didn't see anyone driving just two people fighting. Despite our arguments we were contemplating whether to call a cab or friend to bring us home. When the cops showed up they arrested us both with DUI. What can we do.
Based on what you describe you have a very defensible case and a decent shot at beating the charge. That is if things...
Cop refused blood test I requested
I got pulled over and asked if I was on any medications, I was only on a prescription from my dr,(non narcotic) anti depressant. Cop said I failed his field sobriety test and arrested me? I had my 8yr old in the car with me, I begged he let me call someone for her and he refused, then he refused to let me get blood work to prove I had not taken more than the prescribed dose of the medication, he refused that request 6 times or more. Instead have me a breathalyzer and urine screen which wouldn't show my levels! Also, he took items off my body without female officer present and when I yelled to my daughter to get my phone and call someone, he ran over and took the phone from her while she was talking to her dad!! Is any of this ok? I have been harassed and have no idea what to do!! I need help asap please! My Dr is totally supportive and wonderful.

Is it possible to submit a written plea for leniency in advance or in lieu of a BMV administrative hearing?
I had a clean record until totalling my car in a single vehicle accident while driving at a BAC of .15. I feel it is relevant to my defense that I suffer from a mental illness that requires me to take a number of prescription medications. On the day of the accident I was basically self-medicating with alcohol. My psychiatrist has told me he will discharge me if I drink again. Given the years of hard work it took for the two of us to get me off SSDI losing him would be almost akin to a death sentence, far beyond any punishment the BMV or courts may impose. There are additional factors surrounding my illness that I feel are relevant. Given their sensitivity I do not want to discuss these topics in some sort of open forum. Is it possible to make a written plea to the BMV? I expect to be contacted within the next few days for an admin. hearing. Thank you!
No, it is no possible. There are no pleas for leniency with BMV. After BMV sends notice of suspension, you must: (1)...
