What can I do to contest a DUI charge in Virginia?
I submitted to FSTs and roadside breath. Refused breath/blood at station. Transported to the hospital after having an anxiety attack. I am also in the military and facing several issues as well.
You can retain an attorney. It's futile trying to do anything on your own. If you knew the law you wouldn't have...
Is there any way to sastifiy "mandatory" jail time for a 2nd DUI charge in 5 years (bac 0.19) without sitting in a jail cell?
I was convictied of a 2nd DUI in five years with a bac of 0.19%. I received the mandatory 30 day sentence (weekends). I did not appeal and have already served the first weekend. My question is, is there any other way to satisfy the 30 days without sitting in a jail cell? I am serverly diabetic and cannot physically endure what it takes to serve 48 hours each weekend in a cell. Also I have nothing else on my record other than the first DUI (4 years 10 months ago). There was no accident or property damage in either case. Thank you for your responses
Regrettably, no. Mandatory jail time in Virginia is just that - mandatory time behind bars. If 10 days have not...
How long do acholol stays in ur system? Can they tell if a person is still drinking doing a urine test?
Is it true that a urine test can tell whether ur drinking 5 days ago?
I don't believe so. Alcohol comes out of you system within hours of drinking depending on how much you had to drink.

Legal Liability DUI - post separation
My wife's a drunk. She hasnt had a DUI yet, but drinks and drives all the time. I used to take her keys away and lock them in the safe on a regular basis while we were together. During the 6 years we were together I think she was hospitalized for falling down the stairs twice and for alcohol detox with DTs 3 times (Or something like that, I lost count). Now that we're getting separated and I've found a place to stay, I kept her keys because I feel that I would still be liable if I let her drive. Is that correct? Can I address this in a separation agreement or do we need to re-title the cars and re-do the loan first? What if she gets a rental car on her own credit card?
Are you talking about civil or criminal liability? If you are this concerned then I suggest that you get into a...
If a cop doesn't give you a DUI at the scene or inform you of your BAC or results of your other tests, what should I do?
I was given a reckless driving and possession of alcohol ticket. I am 19 and my parents don't know that I was drinking while driving. I have been told my BAC will be brought up in court, but I wasn't given it. I was given other tests and wasn't told if I passed. I understand they tried to give me another chance by not charging me with a DUI, but can they still when I get to court. I have never had any prior charges with the law of any sort and have good grades and no accidents prior to this. I understand I deserve a punishment but would like to understand to what extent this could be. While the punishment does vary judge to judge, I was wondering if this will get taken off my record somehow since it is NOT a felony because they didn't charge me with a DUI.
Go ahead and tell your parents about this. They will help you hire a good lawyer. A conviction for this will stay on...
