Hi, I was recently pulled over and had a breathalyzer test, I came out .08 bac. Now on the sheet it has a control sample that came out .08 and the expected value was a .085, basically saying the machine was off by .005, do you think that would hold up in court?
That's actually an acceptable number for the control and doesn't mean the machine was off. It actually, weird as it may...

My stepdaughter was in an accident. She got drunk, took a car without permission, with a passenger & wrecked the car into school property. We live in a small town & the officer on scene did not to file a report. He felt she had learned her lesson. Now, 2 years later, the insurance company has demanded a police report so they have charged her with a smaller offense of felony unauthorized use of a vehicle. Trying to avoid the DUI charge. If she pleads not guilty, there will be a trial & investigation and she could be charged with several more things. What happens if she pleads no contest or guilty?
Much more information is needed, but a local criminal lawyer should be retained to fight any charge.
All, Please help me here very urgent, I got 8 months old DUI arrest. I believe officer didn't file my case in court. They gave me court date after 4 days on arrest, when i went to court, they don't have my papers. I oredered court document and police report for my records a week back, court says "no record found" and police report just stats my "arrest record" I understood that one cannot file expungement after DUI conviction and DUI diversion. But one can file if case is dismissed for any reason. Am i eligible for expungement after 8 months arrest, or do i need to wait for 2 years (as Oregon has 2 years time-period), Please help here, I need to go to out of United State for VISA stamping in coming months. Will it be a problem if i go for stamping in this case ?
An unfiled DUI charge with only an arrest should not prevent you from a visa stamping abroad, however, if requested...
I received a DUII in Oregon (Washington County), but was NOT driving at the time. Can they cite DUII based on conversation?
My girlfriend and I were pulled over in front of a driveway that leads to a house. A car rolled up behind us. I thought it was just a car who wasn't going around me. I turned my car on to auxiliary to roll down my window and stuck my hand out to wave them by. I then saw the lights of the cop car and rolled down the passenger window (Note: Only the back portion of the light bar was on, not the front). The officer ask what we were doing, where we were coming from, and then asked if we had been drinking because he smelled alcohol. He asked for my insurance and my drivers license. After coming back, he asked me to step out of the car, spoke with me on my drinking (said 4 whisky sodas over a few hours) He asked me to perform sobriety tests. I completed and he put me under arrest for DUII.
Yes you can be cited even though the officer didn't witness any driving as long as there is evidence that you were...
What am I facing? 2 DUI in one month. already plead guilty to the first. accepted plea of bench probation. Just received another
A month ago I plead guilty to a plea of DUI and was put on bench probation. I was messed up on xanex. Exzactly a month later, I was pulled over on another DUI and charged. This time I wasnt high. When the cop asked if I was on anything, I told her I go to a methadone clinic everyday for drug treatment and take the medicine everyday by prescription. Automatically being judgemental, she says I fail my physical sobriety test and charges me. With me being on this bench probation and receiving another DUI, what should I expect? Also if I run back home to Chicago, will they extradite me back?
Whether appointed or retained you need an attorney right away.
A number of months ago I was arrested for DUI in Southern Oregon. Released after I blew a 0.01 on the Breathalyzer at the station, and they took a urine sample. I showed up to the date on the citation and was told by the clerk that no charges against me had been filed. I called the DA’s office about a month later and they said they rejected the case, I’m assuming because there was no drugs in my urine. I haven’t gotten any letters or anything else from the DA. My question is: at this point am I just waiting to see if they change their mind or want to charge me with a lesser charge? And how long do they have to do that? Thank you
The DA has 2 years to charge you with misdemeanor DUII, 3 years for felony (felony requires at least 2 prior in the...
