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...

Will I still be able to have my DUI expunged?
One year ago I plead guilty to a DUI charge in Kentucky. I was told i could have it expunged if I kept my record clean for 5 years. Unfortunately, this past weekend I received a ticket for an open container violation in Oxford, Mississippi. (I was not in a car, rather walking on the street).
The statute is clear that ther must be 5 years of clear conduct. Retain a lawyer in Oxford. The lawyer may be able to...
Do I have to take classes again?
I got a 2nd DUI Feb. 2013. In Indiana. I have a Kentucky DL. I took required classes and was on probation in Indiana. After I did all my classes and paid my probation. The probation released me early. I wasn't aware My Kentucky DL had been suspended until last week when I was going to get a Indiana DL. Frankfort Ky DMV said they won't accept my classes they should have been been turned in immediately after completion. I had no idea. Now they want me to do 36 weeks of classes again. Can There be a loop hole or way to fight this? Thank You.
There may be. You should definitely hire a Kentucky attorney to see if they can obtain your course history and apply...

After getting a DUI in CA and now living out of state, how can I get my BAC lowered for a 1650 waiver?
I received a DUI in 2013, started my program in Mar, 2014 but was dropped (8/4/14) for missing too many classes and failure to pay. I have been working on this from KY all year with no success. I had a warrant, got it recalled, have had my SR22 for 7 months, applied for a 1650 waiver but was denied because my BAC was a .22 and the MAU says this prohibits me from being eligible without an amended abstract lowering it below a .20. DMV gave me 3 options, to get it lowered, to re-enroll/drop and pay some fines, and to return to CA to finish it entirely. I have a life and a job in KY I can't leave for the amount of time it would require to settle options 2 and 3. I've been without a license for some time and need it back ASAP.
The amended abstract of judgment seems like the best option, but it would be very difficult to get, I think. Imagine...
