When will the state dismiss a DUI due to the longevity of the case?
I was charged with a DUI in 04/2015. My blood results came back with Morphine in my system. That being said, I have come into new information that many females were drugged with GHB that night so I have requested that the state test my blood again. It has now been almost 3 years so at what point will the state just dismiss if this takes too long?

What to expect at DMV hearing for multiple dui?
8/30/15 first DUI offense (level 5) and another DUI offense 11/14/15 it was considered a level 5 due to court not seeing first DUI. My conviction date for the second one was 4/27/16. I’m eligible for a hearing next April and I have paid all court fees and fine and completed all required assessments and classes. 24 hours community service for each DUI and 20 hours alcohol assessment for each DUI also. I’m going to hire an attorney for my hearing but prior to speaking with one in person, what should I expect? I occasionally have a drink. Have never been behind the wheel since license was revoked, do not ride with people who have even had one drink, always Uber and I don’t consume any drugs. What are the chances that license will Be reinstated? I’m aware that I will have to obtain an interlock device and I am fine with that. Just curious as to how this experience plays out. I’m Fortunate enough to have an outstanding father who helps out whenever he can to give me ride to and from work. What are the DMV officers looking for?
Do not go into such a significant ordeal without an attorney. I have observed some DMV hearings go favorable and...
What do I do if a drunk driver hit my parked car and the police officer never asked or gave them a breathalyzer test?
Midnight while I was sleep in my home a young man partying at a house 3 house up the street from mine left the party and hit my car. My mother woke me up out of my sleep and told me some one hit my car, I went out to see and the whole front end of my bmw was torn off. The person who hit the car was still there and apologizing he was obviously drunk and even admitted to it several times and just knew he was going to jail. We exchanged insurance information and the police was called out, so it took them a hour and a half to arrive. When the officer did show up we talked I told him it was my car that got hit etc he asked me for my registration I went to retrieve it. When I came back he had already talked to the other driver he came over to me to hand me a card with a case number and that was it. I noticed that the insurance card he gave the officer was different then the one he showed me and also the card the officer was shown was expired. The officer never gave the young man a breathalyzer test or ask for a field sobriety test its crazy because any one talking to the young man would know he had been drinking.
At this point, all you can do is sue the guy who hit your car. Best of luck!
