Will I help by case for DUI if I complete a treatment program and weekly AA meeting?
I received a ticket for DUI on July 28th. I completed a blood test and then then released to go home. I'm scheduled court Nov.2nd. I have a prior, reduced to reckless driving, from another state. By completing a treatment program and attending weekly AA meeting will that help my case? I have 3 month to show I take responsibility for my actions. The prior case was about 5 years ago.
It won't hurt. These cases are handled fairly seriously given the danger they pose, and a judge would be more inclined...

How long can a police officer follow you before pulling you over?
I was followed by a cop for over a mile at night...I approached a stop sign, stopped for 3 seconds, then proceeded to turn. He followed for about 200 ft then cop turned on his lights & pulled me over. The cop said I swerved and ran the stop sign because my front tires were barely touching crosswalk. He asked if I had been drinking or anything, in which case I hadn't - I was only on Klonopin (an anxiety medication in which I'm prescribed). He then gathered my license, proof of insurance and registration (all legit). When he came back to my car, he told me to step out, put me in the back of his car. He called for back up - they searched my car and never asked for my permission to do so nor did they read my my Miranda rights. I was asked to perform a field side sobriety - which I performed-passed. Cop then said I had to go to hospital to do blood test. I was issued a ticket for "running a stop sign - 4 pts. swerving - 3 pts & DUI". Is this entrapment - was he allowed to follow me this long & not pull me over right after I allegedly swerved or ran the stop sign? Was this legal for them to search my car & not read me my rights? Was the blood test necessary? Can I fight this and win?
This is not entrapment. A police officer can follow you as far as they want. The search of the car might have been...

I then went inside to pee..bf wondered were I went so he got out to see..10 min later I come back out to see the cops there...bf following 3 min later. I see 2 cops by my car all walking around it... I didn't realize they were at my car until it was too close and they saw me and asked if it was my car. And I said yea. And my car was locked and my keys were mixed in all my laundry in the back seat....I had accidentally locked them in car. They asked for ID And I said it was in car And then realised I didn't have keys And car was locked. Window was cracked barley though and they made me basically break in my car for my ID. And they wanted me to give a blood test. And I refused cuz I thought it was all just Bullshit from the beginning..they found no drugs or alcohol either.
It sounds like you have a defense to the charges if you have a decent attorney. If you decide to act as your own...
How can I defend myself against a DUID for marijuana while I hold a Medical Card in the state of Colorado?
My trial is Wednesday and my public defender hasn't done much to help - My blood nanogram was 16 (three times past the legal limit). However, truth is I wasn't smoking anytime recent to getting behind the wheel and/or consumed mmj in any form. I was not impaired by any means as I am used to the effects. Research says blood test of THC is not a accurate way to test intoxicity. (Can this be proved in court?)
Whether you have a medical marijuana card has zero impact on the trial without an expert to testify that people who...
