Hangover? You really should engage a lawyer to deal with the prosecutor and the court with this. Good luck.

Why was I never given a case number for my DUI arrest?
I was arrested for DUI on a Friday night and saw a judge on Saturday who read my charges and I was released after posting bond. I was ordered to pretrial services which I visited the following Monday. They did not have a case number for me. There is no case number on any of my paperwork after being discharged. I went to record's afterwards to get my case files and they could not even see anything under my name. The clerk told me to go to the DA's office, and they couldn't find anything either. Why don't I have a case number? How long do I have to wait to request discovery?
You won't have a case number until the court assigns one (which may take up to 2 or 3 weeks), and cannot get reports...
I just got a second DUI within 5 years of my first offense what should i do?
I didn't get a lawyer my first DUI, the outcome was the same as the people on the docket who had lawyers. This one i understand will include mandatory jail time of at least 10 days. The DUI happened in Adams County, I had court today and asked for a continuance. I did do the roadside and told him i had terrible balance and flat feet so it wasn't going to look good he recommended i do it anyway. I didnt do well on it as planned so then asked me to do the breathalyzer i refused and he took me to jail. I don't remember getting read my miranda rights or being asked if i would be willing to submit to a blood test. Is there a way to get access to video or audio for the night i was pulled over and possible be able to get this thrown out. Is having a lawyer if plead guilty going to reduce jail time
You have laid out a few issues that you need to talk to a good DUI lawyer about. You are not going to get the guidance...
1st DUI conv. Judge said I had to wear SCRAM bracelet; PO says my probation can be terminated without doing it. What do I do?
It's my 1st DUI conviction. It was in Broomfield county. I live out of state, and I'm about 5 mo. into a 18 mo. phone-in probation program. After I finish up my community service this month, I will have done everything required (alcohol class, therepy, etc) except for the SCRAM bracelet. I didn't ask the PO specifically about the SCRAM bracelet, but she definitely said we can discuss my termination after the community service. Is it possible that because I live out of state that they can't make me wear the SCRAM? (I actually have looked into it, and am not sure if its available where I live) If I end up getting my supervised probation terminated without doing the SCRAM, will I be ok regardless?
This is really an issue that should have been brought up by your attorney prior to sentencing. You may want to call...
