I need a DUI lawyer for a first time offender in Carbondale, Il What should I expect
I also got a speeding ticket and a DUI ticket and a breathalizer ticket
If you are going to get an experienced DUI defense attorney it is difficult to tell you what you should expect, because...
What my options for a DUI if I refused a breathalyzer and was never administered a blood test?
I swerved off the road and the airbag knocked me out. The police officer found me unconscious at the wheel and when I awoke I refused a breathalyzer and was taken by ambulance to the local hospital where I was never administered a blood test. I was written a ticket for a DUI and I was also given a ticket for getting into the accident. This is my first DUI offense. What are my options here given the information?
You certainly have the right to plead not guilty and contest the DUI citation via trial by judge or jury. You need to...
I recieved a Drinking ticket In Carbondale IL, I did not admit to drinking but still recieved the ticket.. Can I beat this?
Two state troopers pulled up on me and my friends and proceeded to ask us if we had any drinks that night, one of my friends willingly said yes while the others (including myself) kept our mouths shut. The state troopers proceeded to write us tickets. We had no alcohol on us, nor were any of us noticeably intoxicated. The troopers did not breathalize us either
One admission by one witness is sufficient. Many are incarcerated right now based on witness observations
Will a Carbondale city ordinance violation of underage drinking result in the suspension of my drivers license?
An officer saw me take a drink from a plastic cup at a bar. I received a city ordinance violation citation for underage drinking. The officer didn't let me try to explain what the drink was, did not ask or give me a breathalyzer, and just continued to write and give me the citation. I lost my citation and the date on my citation passed without me realizing it. I had a fender bender yesterday only to find this out and that I had a warrant. I bailed out about an hour later but I don't know what I am supposed to do. Should I call the courthouse Monday morning, go there, or wait for something in the mail? Since my citation date lapsed, will this now go to the S.O.S? I'm 19, work full time, live on my own, and I really can't lose my license. I can't afford an attorney.
You were probably found guilty in absentia so you're off the road for at least six months, you could have saved...
What if the violation number (ex. 2-5-5) doesn't match the description of the incident?
The officer wrote 2-5-5 which is drinking on public property, but for the description, he wrote "consumption of alcohol by a minor" I was technically doing both, but can it be dropped by the fact that it doesn't match? My friend that I was with that was also a minor only got a drinking on public property and didn't have to go to court. Can my charge be more even though we both cooperated the same?
Since you have admitted to doing both the prosecutor can charge you and win on both. Hire an attorney and post no...

Used my baiid to check if I was to intoxicated. I wanted to know my condition before trying to drive.
Was at a party, and had stopped drinking for about an hour. Wanted to go home since it was around 2 am. Wasn't sure how sober i was, checked with my Baiid and failed with a .0633. Didn't try again that night. Was fine around 9 the next morning to drive. Will the S.O.S. accept my explaination?
The fact that you continue to drink while on a BAIID will concern the SOS. I highly recommend you hire an attorney to...
