Please advise if there is a statue Of limitations on a dui
I was arrested 9/9/2014 for a dui. However I was in my vehicle with an open container however the truck broke down and I was sleep in the vehicle because it was not operational. The police had to physically push the truck to my auto repair man shop which I was parked across from. The police never witness me driving nor did anyone report I was driving just that I was sleep in the car. I was fleeing from a domestic alterations and the drunk broke down. The police admitted to forgetting to file chargers and file over a year later. What can I do? ???
Get an attorney. Fight the case. Statute of limitations on a DUI is two years. They do have a time limit on filing...
Dui 2nd offense with warrant
I have a friend that has a dui. its her 2nd offense. the offense occurred June 2009. She has a warrant currently because she failed to show in court. she would like to clear this matter up. what would be her first step. is she looking at jail time or could it be reduced because its been over 5 yrs? what fines are associated with such a charge? she is currently sober and has been for some time. she has a sponsor and have been attending meetings regularly. would that be taken into consideration?

Can I get a DUI charge if not arrested?
Hello. I was pulled over last night very drunk. The officers gave a sobriety test and I told them I couldn't stand on one leg because I had to much to drink. They sat me in the police car then drove me home and dropped me off leaving my truck on the side of the road. They did not take me to the police station, they did not do a breathalyzer, they did not take blood, and didn't give me any paperwork. Could I still get a DUI or does it sound like they let me go? Thanks.
Since you were so intoxicated, it is quite possible that the true facts of the event maybe different from what you...
Dui pulled over for no headlights but i had them on
the cops saw me pass thru a intersection. shorty after that the road i was on was an S shape with no street lights or houses. they pulled me over all 3 cop cars speeding up to me with lights on and 1 said he "thought my headlights were out" i never woulda made it if they were out an i have pics proving that the road isnt drivible without lights. said he smelled alc, i recited my abcs ok, failed to walk the line and blew a .14 and had a BAC taken. do i have a defense that i was stopped on an opinion of my headlights and not the way i was driving beacuse i can prove they were on and i think he just made it up so he could pull me over or just messed up seeing my headlights were on and some how 3 cops were just there waiting.
Be prepared for a judge to believe the cops instead of your pictures and the argument that the road is not drivable...
PA, Bucks County. Driving under DUI suspension, chances of house arrest or better?
Was on ARD for first offense DUI, judge worked with me on it but we came to conclusion id never get off because I couldn't afford the fees to get off and license bag due to not being able to legally drive. I was pulled over for allegedly driving under dui suspension, when I was selling the car to pay fees. Officer let me drive away after explaining, but did issue a citation for driving under dui suspension. I understand there is a mandatory minimum of 60-90 days incarceration. This case is in three days at district court. I need time to get funds for a lawyer, will I get time if sentenced to arrange affairs if jail happens, can I get house arrest as I pay child support and have a very good job I've acquired in the past 8 months and do not want to lose it, and can a lawyer hep with this at all? Car was literally sold right after, and no vehicle owned, not sure if this can help or not?
You are wise to appear before the DJ with an attorney. If you cannot afford counsel, then submit an application to the...
If you first refused, but then gave blood for DUI, can they still charge you highest BAC with failed implied consent?
Was stopped on suspicion of DUI. Took me to hospital and at first refused blood test. Cop read me what would happen if I did refuse. I then said ok and they took my blood and he said I did the right thing. I found my court docket online and I'm being charged with Highest BAC with failed implied consent. I gave my blood to them. Can they charge me for a refusal even if I still gave blood? I'm confused here.
A couple of preliminary matters, yes, they can charge you with a refusal. In most cases for a DUI they charge a bunch...
How long will my boyfriend serve for a dui and bench warrant for child support
he is serving 15 months for the dui now with 60 in jail and then possible house arrest since he has the bench warrant for child support he owed 1000 we just paid 400 of that will he have to spend more than the 60days in jail
Good question. The answer is hopefully zero if you all can pay off the balance owed on the child support by the time...
