If my ticket for a DUI doesn't include the BAC and was never told my BAC my entire time being held is the charge still valid?
I was pulled over for failure to move over by a highway patrol in which he instantly gives me a Breathalyzer 2 times and according to him I failed. When I got to the station they gave me another breath tests and it said I failed but was still never told my BAC. Not once was I told not is it written on my ticket itself.

I received DUI other last summer July 2015. The judge said if I would go to MASEP Classes a madd class pass 3 drug tests and see court programs and pay my fine then he would drop it. I have done everything but pay a fine for 1800 and it's showing as pending my continuance as been moved 5 or 6 times and I have documentation I'm going to munkcapal court tomorrow To beg the judge to remove it but I don't have the 1800 my continuance isn't until October but I need this clearance for a job.

Dose a judge have to give credit for time served?
A few years ago my husband was arrested for old fines. The fines were for driving on a suspended license and no insurance. He served 4 months in the work center at the county jail. During his time he did physical labor for the county. He lost his job his car and his apartment while serving time. The judge said he didn't get time served to teach him a lesson. Now he still has warrants for his arrest and owes all the fines. Is there any way around this or anything we can do?
The question you initially ask and the question you ask at the end of your post are two very different things. It seems...

Can I beat my dui charge that is for alcohol and other substance? Or can I atleast prove that I was not under influence of drugs

I got a refusal of a breathalyzer dui charge that says I was impaired by alcohol and other substances. Even though the officer found nothing not even alcohol.
Yes, you have a chance to "beat" this type of charge, especially if you first consult with and then hire the right type...
