Question about conviction vs supervision.
I had a dui 8 years ago that I got court supervision for. Got thru the SSS and supervision periods with no incidents. I assume that means that it doesnt count as a conviction on my record. I got a dui a few weeks ago. I most certainly will be found guilty. For purposes of sentencing and applying for an RDP, will it be seen as my first conviction?
First offense for SSS length, first for MDDP eligibility, second offense for sentencing, first offense for RDP once...

I was charged with a DUI last night.
I was involved in an accident. It was the other person's fault. But I did received a ticket for "not slowing down to avoid accident" Which makes no sense. I do not think the test results matter because I drank liquor at the Scene AFTER the crash. I just waited in the car actually and drank wine port.The police did arrive and it said on the ticket that they noted I had wine in my hands when they arrived. I have a jeep and the damage didn't really look to bad, (her car looked totaled) . I didn't know how to handle the situation. I was also drinking before I got into the jeep. But I believe it was the wine I drank at the scene that put me over the limit.
Report this to your auto carrier and hire a criminal attorney. Do not post more admissions online.

Refusal to submit to DUI chemical testing multiple times
I asked to speak to an attorney when told I needed to go to the hospital to submit to DUI testing. I asked for an attorney multiple times while at the hospital. Then after 2.5 hours after the auto accident I submitted because all my requests for an attorney were ignored. Are the results of chemical test valid and admissible?
The fact you were not given the right to consult an attorney prior to a blood test is not a constitutional violation...
