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...

Can you be charged with DUID if you have a legal prescribition and your levels are correct?
I was driving around 7pm, it was already dark, rainy. Going into the curve all I could see was bright, bright lights coming towards me, the next thing I knew my car flipped landed on its top about 500 feet from where the other driver was. No skidd marks, no witness, nothing to prove it was only my fault but the other driver's word, who was not hurt. I climbed out of my car somehow dazed, I could not see just here everything. The policeman said, I want you to tell me the truth, you better not lie to me either, are you taking anything today. I was scared to death. I said I took a oxycodone ealier today, and then He told me I was underarrest for DUI. I had to go to the hospital or jail he said. They took me to Er and did drug test. In 37 years I have never had a ticket,

What will happen if I have a DUI on my record and I just received an MIP?
I was charged with a DUI a year and a half ago and this past weekend, I received an MIP from an ABC cop for having an unopened beer in my hand. What is going to happen? Will the punishment for the MIP be more severe with a DUI already on my record?
I would wager yes, considering your a minor and you've had two alcohol related incidents. Is this worth it to...
How do we resolve a Georgia DDS requirement for an Interlock Ignition waiver from a Florida judge?
My son received a second DUI while visiting Key West Florida 13 years ago. He had a Georgia license at the time. He has since moved to Ohio, and when he tried to get an Ohio license he found out Georgia has suspended his GA license because he never had an Interlock Ignition device installed. The Florida DMV sent a letter to the GA DDS stating that no Interlock Ignition device was required, and that he has met all Florida requirements for license reinstatement. GA DDS is telling my son the information in the letter is what they need, but it must come from a judge, not the DMV. The office of the sentencing judge says the judge cannot provide a waiver for a GA requirement. Impasse.
Contact an attorney in your area who practices DUI/DWI law. They are the best source of information to find out how to...
