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.

Can i get a DUI if the officer let me drive home?
I was in the drivers seat of my vehicle at a party. I had one drink earlier that night. We were boxed in by other vehicles so we were waiting for them to leave. My passenger was going to drive me home, after we had a way out of the yard we were going to switch seats. Cop rolls up asked me my name, what I had to drink, my parents names and how old I was (19). Another cop says all drivers are getting breathalyzed before they leave. My passenger was nervous because he had been smoking marijuana and I knew I wasn't impaired so I took the breathalyzer. I blew a .02 and he told me I could go and he watched me drive away. My question is.. Did I dodge a bullet? Or could I be charged with DUI or MIP? he never saw my license or registration. Never gave me a ticket or anything. The officer didn't write anything down. I was in a front yard on private property with about 40 other vehicles.
Asked and answered in the past. You almost certainly dodged a bullet, but you might still receive something later. If...
Do probation officers administer hair follicle for DUI offense?
Received my first (and last) DUI. I am doing 6 months probation, 1 visit a month. I'm told you have to pay for your drug tests if he/she (probation officer) administers one. Do probation officers "typically" administer hair follicle tests for something of this sort (as they are more expensive) or just UA? What could I expect? Thank you
They typically use a simple urinalysis reagent test.
