DUI in the state of Utah?
I was in Utah for the weekend and I had gotten pulled over for speeding in the process I told the police that i did have some marijuana with me . I do have a medical card for my condition from California state. And it is illegal to carry the marijuana with me in the state of Utah. I did get tested to see if I was sober and I did not pass even though i was not under the influence the police did not make there decision until they took my blood test, and I had told them that I was not smoking in this state of Utah. I was charged with a possession and a DUI but that was after they took my blood test that they found thc ofcourse they were because I am a regular smoker. But when they took the breathalizer it was a 0.0 nothing. What can I do?

How can I make sure I still don't get charged if he tries to tell them it was me?
Me and 3 other friends were out one night drinking we decided to go to my one friends apartment so we went there and decided to go somewhere else. So I started driving to the entrance and cops pulled in so I parked and they got out and started looking in cars with flash lights and one shined his light right at us then started looking somewhere else so I left and when I was halfway up the road I saw one started to fallow me so I took a left them gunned it and I got to a main street where I turned left at a light that's when I saw him speeding up to me so I just pulled into the first house I saw and ran me and my other friend got away and my other two friends got caught. One of them got charged with a DUI even tho he wasn't driving. So I never heard anything from any cops but my friend called me like a week ago saying they say it's to late to charge anyone else they just need me and my friends testimony so he wouldn't get the dui I haven't talked to him since.
The best way would be to consult with a lawyer that does DUI work. The attorney will know the process your friend is...
Can I do anything further to get my suspended license back after a refused breathalizer, and Attorney General disapproval?
Here was my original question on fighting the DLD to get a potential reduced sentence on my 18 month license suspension. http://www.avvo.com/legal-answers/should-i-fight-the-dld-to-get-a-reduced-sentence-o-2431302.html Well, I went ahead with it, and I just got paperwork uploaded by my lawyer which says it was denied by the Attorney General. I haven't gotten ahold of my lawyer yet, but is there anything else I can do? I have a great job, I'm a mother, I've never had a previous DUI. 18 months just seems excessive. I'm going to have to spend a crap load of money on Uber just so I don't lose my job, I already rented out my house and got an apartment closer to work... Do I have any other options?
Speak to your lawyer regarding this. If you already have an attorney, that's going to be much more helpful than...
What is protocol and how do get started?
In the interest of brevity I will get right to the point. This case is over seven years old and currently stands as a failure to appear out of Deschutes county Oregon. On July 24, 2008 I was on my way home from the Eugene Oregon area after completing a construction project. I pulled my car off into a wooded area several hundred yards from the nearest roadway and went to sleep. Sometime later I was awoken and arrested for D.U.I. A few hours later I was released on “OR” with a court date in 30 days. I came back to Utah fully intending to return and contest the charges. Just days before I was planning on returning my father passed away suddenly followed by my brother, and I was thrust into the role of caretaker for my elderly mother. It was my choice not to deal with the problem at that time and I own it. I would now like to resolve this case. I have no expectation of going to trial and beating the charges. my hope is to enter into a plea agreement for a lesser charge i.e. public intox.
