Can I be charged with a DUI when I was not searched or given any kind of sobriety test?
I allowed my friends to use my vehicle & they smoked marijuana In it & when I got it back & was driving home I went through a roadblock & the officer smelled it. he had me pull an extra 75 feet to get out of road & never received ANY kind of sobriety test, nor was I searched, even when being booked in. Nothing was found in my car when it was searched, I was put in handcuffs, taken to jail, got booked in, & sat in the drunk tank for 4 hours, still in the clothes I was arrested in. had insurance, license, etc. everything on me & my vehicle & everything that was in it my vehicle was legal except expection sticker. Court Tuesday. Guilty or not guilty? Can I fight it since no test was given to me & since he had me drive after being accused of being under the influence?

If the officer who gave you a ticket doesn't show up will the DUI charges be dropped?
My step-daughter got a DUI, and my husband thinks that if the officer who gave her the ticket doesn't show up to court that the charges will be dropped. Her blood alcohol content is on record, and she hit a stop sign. She was also charged for having drug paraphernalia. She is 18. In Illinois she received a drinking ticket at age 17.
If the officer is not there at made the initial arrest, then the state will most likely ask for a continuance and...
I am defending myself in a dui case, do i have the right to know what kind of intoxilizer machine they used? Are they allowed ?
My wife called, and they said they couldn't give out that information.
If they can, you need to make a written discovery request asking for it. But you really shouldn't be defending a DUI...
DUI: Is there anything I can do?
I was convicted of a DUI in the state of Tennessee 3 years ago and it has completely ruined my life since then. I am unable to apply for the jobs I want, even though I graduated from college with a Bachelor's degree. Tennessee does not allow expungement of records on DUI's. I understand I made a mistake, but is there any possible alternative to getting this cleared from my record so I can move on with my life? I am not a bad person and do not have a problem. I was leaving a dinner party and got stopped.
You could ask the governor to pardon you.

Kansas Dui help out of state
I was in a motorcycle wreck in 2012 while visiting my mom in Kansas and was taken to the hospital. I was never arrested. I have lived in Mississippi for 20 years now. I did live in Kansas as a child. I just went to have my MS license renewed and was told that Kansas had a block on it and gave me a number to call. The lady at the Kansas DVM said I had been convicted of DUI due to a blood alcohol test done in the hospital. She told me I needed to write a letter stating that I was no longer a resident of Kansas and list my name, ss# address etc along with a money order or check for $25. She said I would then receive a letter of instructions to follow. Is there anything I can do?
Your best course of action is to discuss with a DUI attorney in Kansas. Good luck.
I was in a wreck and because I had a prescription of Xanax in my purse I got a dui ticket
I hit my head on the steering wheel and the only fst he gave me was watching his finger. I had just taken a blow to my eye. He said I failed and gave me a dui ticket. A dog ran out in front of me and I wasn't going to swerve because I have always been told not to. My tire hit the gravel and I ran off the road hitting a fence. The Sherrifs dept got there and took my purse immediately. The hwy patrol came to the ambulance and told me he suspected I was under the influence. He did the fst and drew blood after I got to hospital. My eye was almost swollen shut. But he chose to do the eye test.
As for the "eye test," please review my previous answer. DUI "other substance" charges are quite common. Many people...
