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...
Do I need a different dui attorney or can my current dui attorney fix this?
I got a dui in february of 2014. I hired an attorney and immediately told him I did not want any deals as I had identified several triable issues. I have legal experience in another state but huge personality with female judge anxious to make an example of me, refusal and gave cop a hard time. Anyway, case was set for trial, lawyer failed to gather the evidence, send out subpoenas I suggested and I entered a plea to a dwai and careless driving with atty screaming at me in open court that he would leave, even tho potential jurors in next room if I didnt take plea. I also told judge I was on tranquilizers. Atty said license safe, now suspended and going to hearing what should atty do or me for that matter. He misled me. I did not voluntarily plead and judge sua sponte should have aborted ple
Well. It is difficult to set aside a plea of guilty particularly when you have an attorney. Also, it has been my...
Will a prior DUI come up on a background check?
Im currently on probation for a DUI. I will be done by and everything will be complete by October of this year. Per my sentencing my lawyer got my DUI to a deferred sentence as long as I comply with what the court ordered which I have. I will recently be looking for a job after I graduate as a medical assistant in August. Is this going to effect my chances of getting a job in the health care field?
Yes. But honesty is the best policy, right? The experience will come up on a background check. Fortunately, you are...

Is it possible to get earlier termination of probation with a dui In Arapahoe county.
I got a Dui high BAC and was on pre trail for 4 months but got one year probation 20 days IHD and minimum fines. I did community service and VIP before sentencing all my fines were paid after 3 months and got rest of community service done in a month 48 hours. after the 6 month mark all my achohal class will be done. Is it likely to ealier terminate from probation after 6 months plus been the 4 months of pre trial? I was asked to get a review in 9 months and that was granted. Could I ask to ealier terminate at the review?
How long is your probation for? Probation isn't just about getting your stuff done.
I was charged with a DUI (12 points) a few months ago and got a speeding ticket, what do I face.
I got pulled over in November 2014 for a DUI. I got all my charges official in April 2015. I was charged with a 12 point DUI. I got caught going 72 in a 65 by a speed trap on 6th avenue. long story, the officer could have given me some other ticket because right after he initially caught me the speed dropped down to 55 then 45. but he said he would give me a break and write me a 4 point speeding ticket for 9-19 over instead of the 6 point going 72 in a 45. complicated situation. Now I have a 4 point ticket to pay and get reduced to a 2 point defaulty vehicle or go to court. I am extremely scared to lose my licence if i get points. what is going to happen? i am willing to fight and take classes to get a 0 point. insurance rates scare me but im more worries about the license status.
