I need to sue a judge. he was my lawyer on a dui case back in 2007ish. i feel he was negligent and owes me the 700.00$ cash fee.
this is a very small town and this "lawyer" is now a judge. it has come to light that i was not in fact drunk and not infact driving or behind the wheel of an automible the night in question. recent facts have come to light being that i was "ruffied" the evening in question and my blood alcohol level could not have been that high after 1 glass of wine and 2 beers!! especially hours after the fact. i was waiting in a parking lot waiting for my brother to drive me home when the police got involved. well, i served 4 months in jail and lost driving priviliges. the " "judge" [NAME REMOVED BY AVVO] has a very dirty track record, rape pornography etc and ignores my attempts to what i feel is a legitimate refund. also, i have a police brutality issue. please advise, sincerely, [NAME REMOVED BY AVVO]
So the lawyer who represented you is now a judge ? Your story is vague.
I was charged and arrested for a O.W.I the other night. They pulled me over for speeding (which i cannot deny) but i passed my sobriety tests and still insisted on a breathalyzer test. I figured i was good to go forward with this test because i have only had about 3 to 4 drinks within a four to a four and a half hour time frame and blew a .09 ( just one point over the limit) and they read me my chemical rights but i do not recall the arresting officer reading or giving me my Miranda rights. Is this enough for me to get this charge dropped or at least dropped to something substantially lower than my original charges? My court date is tomorrow but i'am going to pled not guilty.
They don't need to read you your rights unless they take you onto custody and interrogate you. Based on the facts you...
Will a judge allow a person to go through detox before serving jail time for a DUI probation violation?
My girlfriend is a struggling alcoholic who is having a hard time quitting. She recently was picked up for being in violation of her probation. She has gone through a couple of detoxes which only lasted for a short time before she started drinking again. She has a court date in two weeks for not completing the terms if her probation. Her doctor says she should not quit drinking cold turkey because it could lead to heart problems and or paralysis. She has had seizures in the past when she has tried to quit drinking on her own. Her last seizure was about one month ago. Will a judge allow her to go through a detox at a hospital before serving time? The perfect scenario would be for her to get out of detox and then be put straight into jail so that she doesn't have time to drink.
You asked this question twice. It is an excellent question to ask of your girlfriend's attorney. What you describe is...
Am I legally obliged to pay for a medical test that was proven to have given a 100% inaccurate result?
My doctor recommended that I take a TB blood test instead of a TB skin test. However, the blood test result was inaccurate. It gave me a (false) positive result, when a subsequent skin test showed an incontrovertibly negative result. Am I obliged to pay for the inaccurately performed blood test?
First, I have a hard time understanding how this is a criminal / DUI question. Beyond that though, the fact that a...

How can my son straighten out being charged with leaving scene and wreckless driver when dad was the one that went into ditch?
Ex husband has no license due to DWI's. He went into a ditch and left his truck. It was impounded. Went to pick it up and when asked who was driving, he pointed the finger at son and said he was. Son was taken aside and made up a story because he doesn't want his dad to go to jail. Son is realizing now that he may lose his DL. How can my son tell the court that he lied for his dad without getting into deeper water? My son wants his dad to get some help with his drinking, but dad gets mad at son when it get brought up. Dad has a violent history-shot and killed 2 of my 3 horses 20 years back because he was mad.
You did not mention your son's age. If your son is 18 or over he needs to consult with an experienced criminal defense...
