If one gets a dwi can they still use their authority with other drivers?
The question doesn't make sense. What "authority" are you talking about?
Interlock in home violation
I am on 2 years probation for dwi 2 in texas. I have been on probation for 5 months and passed all breath tests until last night i had a piece of pizza and not thinking about the yeast in the bread blew in my in home and violated it then took the test 2 minutes later and passed and took another test immediately after and passed once again. Do I need to call an attorney i called smart start and noted the situation and plan to call my probation officer monday because this happened on the weekend. Just FYI I have paid all fines and probation fees for my full 2 year term and completed my 80 hours of community service and going to AA and also half way through my mandatory repeat offenders course. I guess what I am asking is can this land me in jail for something silly like pizza.. thank you
Didn't Myth Busters do an episode on food causing positives and said it isn't true? The pizza defense is a new one to...
Should my husband bond out of Texas to turn himself in to probation in Miss.? His bond is $20,000.
He was traveling with a permit from Miss. to Texas while on probation. 2004 he was convicted of a DUI was sentenced to SAFP and 10 years probation. (the 10 years was his idea) He transferred his probation from Texas to Miss. While traveling he pulled into a service station and while standing by the gas pump a drug task force agent pulled up and asked him where was the tag for the camp trailer he was pulling. He said he didn't have one but had the bill of sale we had just bought the trailer. Officer said it wasn't good enough and said he thought he smelled alcohol. My husband refused to blow, the officers asked him where were the drugs. They searched the pickup and my husband submitted to a blood test. They did find a empty beer can in the back floorboard. Should he try to bond out?
You should hire a Criminal Defense Attorney tomorrow and discuss this with him/her, this is important. No one on this...
Got a dui an officer gave me road tests for it but no arrests made and my car was not impounded. Went to court on appointed date
there was no judge(he retired) . Waiting for new judge and another appointment date. Have job waiting in Calif. What to do? I will plead "no contest" as I cant afford a lawyer. But, I was not drinking but officer said he smelled alcohol. Witnesses told officer same thing but no different. So, can I do a phone interview when case comes up or is it mandatory to appear? I don"t wish to plead "no contest" but cant see anyway out. Need advice.
You're going to have to appear in court, or hire an attorney to make an appearance for you, or you risk having an...
If I plea guilty to an obstruction of highway charge and get one year probation, What come with the probation?
I was arrested for DUI even though I wasn't driving at the time nor was I drinking. I had called the police to escort my wifes cousin out of the house because I did not want him there. The officer said he smelled alcohol on my breath and called DPS to do a subrity test. I did the field test but the DPS officers breathalizer machine was broken so he took me to jail where I was to submit to a blood test. The put me in a cell and forgot about me. So no test was ever taken. I have a lawyer but he isn't sure how a jury will react to my word against the officers. I was not drinking nor driving but I am worried that jurrors always side with officers. Should I take the plea or go to trial? It has been over a year and now that it is time for trial they want me to take this plea. What should I do?
I would ask you lawyer about the options you have. It sounds like a very winnable case in front of a jury, but I have...
How can I prevent getting a DUI?
Single vehicle car accident. Police report indicates no alcohol but medical records show otherwise. First time offense. Afraid of being charged at a later time.
There is nothing that you can do to prevent it. If the police report says no alcohol, there is no reason to think that...
Should I expect to be on probation if my DWI charge is reduced?
