Since I'm under 21, there any point in trying to get my DUI lowered to reckless driving?
This an addition/ adaptation to a question I posted earlier about my DUI case. I was arrested for DUI after being in a traffic accident, So since I'm under 21 is there any point in me trying to get it lowered to reckless driving. Wont I still lose my license or will I just get points taken off? Other than the license issues what are some other pros and coins of getting the charge lowered to reckless? As in probation, fines, community service, etc..

Can I possibly get my DUI, driving while revoked and following to closely charges lowered to Reckless driving?
I was recently arrested for DUI, driving while suspended/revoked, and following to closely after being in a traffic accident. I refused all test so was automaticaly booked for DUI. At the time of the arrest I thought my license was completly valid. I had it suspended/revoked for FTA in Late Nov./Early Dec. 2014 So I then waited the obligated time for reinstatement, and paid for my license to be renewed. I did not know I also needed to call the court/courthouse and get them to dismiss the FTA on top of that, So I thought my license was renewed/valid. I Have proof from GA DDS of waiting the obligated time and payment of the license reinstatement.

DUI charge without implied consent, breathalyzer, or field sobriety tests
My husband was pulled over after an officer attempted to pass him. The officer stated my husband almost hit his patrol car as he passed him. My husband was asked to exit the vehicle. He was given only the eye test. The standing/walking test was not given. The officer arrested him stating he failed the eye test and had blood shot eyes. He never read the implied consent, Miranda, and was never offered any breathalyzer or chemical tests. Can we independently request a dismissal in his case based on these facts?
