2nd offense dui and willful wreckless driving.
My husband was arrested this morning for a second offense dui and willful wreckless driving. Was being pulled over for speeding, panicked because he had been drinking so he tried to run, lost control and hit a tree. His first dui was 7 years ago. He says one of the officers told him to get a good lawyer and it could be dropped to a first offense. Is that possible? What outcomes are we looking at? Is it possible to take the defensive driving class and get the wreckless driving reduced or dropped?

Statue of limitations for issuing a DUI?
My husband was in a 4 wheeling accident and rendered unconscious. When the sheriff arrived at the scene he said he could not smell alcohol on my husband and did not issue a citation. The hospital drew blood and he was above the legal limit. It has been a week and we have not been contacted by any law enforcement. Is there a chance he will be issued a DUI based on the lab work from the hospital? No officer appeared at the hospital for the lab work.
Yes, it is possible he can be charged. They have 18 months to issue the ticket. I would make sure that the hospital...
I was charged with my first DUI. Do I have any recourse about appearing for my court date in another state 21 hours away?
I was visiting Arizona when I made a left turn on an unfamiliar, unlit, and unmarked divided highway. I was waiting for an oncoming vehicle to pass so I could correct my mistake. The oncoming vehicle was a police patrol car. I was arrested and charged with DUI. (.08) until this occurrence I have not had a moving violation ( speeding 10 mph over limit) or even a parking ticket since 1974. Sincerely, Robert
