First Time DUID methamphetamine
I got arrested for the first time in my life somewhere in CO (only have had a couple speeding tickets and nothing else prior) and I am twenty-five. I was spooked as I passed a Sheriff going the opposite way when I saw him turn around on the road a hundred yards behind me and I turned into a driveway which gave him suspicion to follow me. The Sheriff arrested me on DUID for being high on Meth and false plates on my car. I had insurance. I went to jail for the weekend until I could post bail. He said he could smell it and I agreed to take a UA at the station. He had me do a test where I stood with my feet together outside, head tilted way back and tell him when 30 seconds was up. They searched my car without consent, but I had nothing on me or in my car. This is first time arrested.
I'm not sure I see a question here. You might want to rephrase.
I was ignorant of the law and refused a breath test. Is there anyway I can save my license.
I am a middle aged woman, do not drink very much or very often and was pulled over. My husband was intoxicated, argued with the officer and I was deemed drunk. I felt antagonized by the officer and confused as to why he was arresting me as I was not intoxicated. I thought if I took the breath test I would only make things worse. When the office told me to sign the paper saying I was refusing the test, I did not read the paper as I did not have my glasses and thought the officer was telling me the complete content of what I was signing. Is there any way to keep my license. I have never been arrested, have no recent traffic violations and need to drive to make a living.
Probably not. Ignorance of the law is not a defense or excuse to prohibited conduct. The fact that you signed the...

What are the consequences for a DUI and driving without a license?
I am a minor of the age 15. Arrested for driving intoxicated, failure to use turn signal, and driving without a license. I have not gone to court yet and would like to know possible penalties and if this is a misdemeanor or felony.
DUI is an unclassified traffic misdemeanor which carries the possibility of up to one year in jail. By statute, if you...
I'm currently 2 months into a 6 month, unsupervised probation for a dwai (not dui) in Colorado. Minor charge, minor probation.
I just found out about a job offer of a lifetime in Colorado, and they'd need me there next week. With the legal system the way it is, most have told me that since this is the lowest grade misdemeanor and probabtion there is, that they won't transfer my probabtion to California. I'll never see a job opportunity like this again, so I'm going to take it. I'll inform my probation officer the day I arrive in California, and offer to pay off all fines in regards to my probation. Some have said due to the nature of my charge and probation and the fact I've never been in trouble before, that CO may consider this "good enough" with time served. Is this a possibilty? Is there anything else I can do? I can't let this ridiculous charge ruin my life, so I'm proactively looking for guidance. Thx
In short, leaving first then telling your probation officer later when you get to Calif is a bad idea. Regardless of...
In colorado when doing a blood test for a DUI do they always test for drugs? And is it a felony?
I have not had anything on my record before this is my first DUI.
It is up to the requesting police officer to tell the lab whether to test for alcohol alone or alcohol and other drugs....
Can I do anything to get a work permit again? After being convicted of a DUI?
I was stopped on July before 17 and was charged with a DUI. My birthday was on August and turned 18 , my court was set afterwards and I plead guilty to the charge of a DUI. I had the DACA permit for 2 years since 2013 & I had barely renewed it on June before I was stopped. On my first appointment of probation ICE got a hold of me and was in custody for a couple weeks & was able to get released with a low bond. Is there anything I can do to get DACA again? Or some other kind of permit before my last court with ICE were the judge decides If I can stay in the U.S. Or sign a voluntary departure?
This was put under DUI when it's an immigration issue.
