Brooks Law

I was in a single car accident back in May. I was avoiding a potential head on collision and I lost control of my car. I went
off the road hitting a tree and rolling ove landing upside down. The car behind me stopped, got me out and police came. He called EMS. He tried to give me a breath test, but the glass that I had in my mouth made it impossible to blow( even though I did try 3 times). I was not seen on video and was not given a blood test. I was transported to the hospital and was released 3 hrs later. I was chared with DUI due to the smell of alcohol on my clothes from working in the bar that night. I've gone to court once and was delayed to another date. I didn't get the public defender because I thought I could save enough for an attrny, but don't have it. What will the judge do this time and can I ask for more time? Also, can I receive any additional charges when my ticket just says dui?
You need an attorney ASAP. If you cannot afford a private attorney, at the next court date ask the judge to appoint you...
Need advice on close friends 4th DUI case
My close friend is going to court in the morning for his 4th DUI. I do not know his prior legal arrangements regarding his other DUI cases. He is planning on pleading not guilty in the morning so that he can have a trial, to obtain time to seek better council due to the fact that he only blew a .09 and the legal limit here in KY is .08. Is this a bad idea and if he pleads guilty will he waive his rights?
It seems you posted this question two times. Here is my previous response. I am only basing my advice on the...

I have an expunged DUI, that was expunged in 2013. Will an expunged DUI show up on an FBI background check?
I unfortunately got a DUI in 2001 in my early 20s.. I got it expunged in 2013. I requested my background check from Ky, which is completely clear. Can the expunged DUI still show up however on an FBI background check? I didn't disclose it on my job application because the law here in KY read applicants don't have to disclose expunged records..I worry though it can still show on an FBI report? Thank you.
Most likely yes, however to know for sure, consder conducting a live scan you yourself to see what shows up on your...

Does using an inhaler for asthma with the drug albuteral effect your BAC tests?
In Kentucky, My daughter was given a DUI. She was drinking but I am wondering what percentage of impact her usage of an inhaler with Albuteral had on her BAC level? She was nervous when pulled over and asked the officer could she use her inhaler because she was having trouble breathing. He said yes but still gave her field sobriety and breathalyser and she registered over the limit. Is it possible or is there any case law to support our position?
Generally speaking, No, especially if the test was given properly. This is because inhalers generally don't contain...
Is there any difference in a DUI case when it was not alcohol it was a Marijuana.
The officer said he was over the yellow line and it was at 300am in the morning. He is a 19 yr old boy in college. Just dont want him to start out this way. I believe he was so scared that he actually admitted to smoking earlier that evening. He has never been in trouble and golds a 3.6 GPA.
It's difficult to understand exactly what you are asking. People in Kentucky can be charged with DUI for marijuana...
