MAKE SURE YOU NOTICE IT SAYS EXCEPT MOPEDS...ALSO UNDER S.C. LAW TITLE 56 ARTICLE23 SECTION 56-5-2930 STATES THAT IT IS UNLAWFUL FOR A PERSON TO DRIVE A MOTOR VEHICLE UNDER THE INFLUENCE...

Can I reopen a dui case?
I was pulled over after hitting a median. I did not blow but did not perform well on the field test, and did have an attitude with the officer. My attorney insisted on pleaing down to a DUAC even though it was my first offense with no previous tickets. I felt that I was poorly represented. My attorneys son had died and he had to send his wife to a rehab out of the country for months and I just feel that he was not thinking clearly. I have consulted with many other dui attorneys after the conviction trying to understand why we went this route. A duac is the same as a dui so why would he do that? Is it possible to reopen this case? It was closed in October.
Unlikely. You are outside the appeal time or any other action to attack the verdict here, to which you agreed anyway....
Will my drunk in public charge be dismissed?
I had a sudden and horrible reaction to medication while walking my kids down the street in a stroller. I fell many times and my speech became slurred. I wouldn't let the neighbors help me due to the onset of confusion so the police were called. I admitted that I had had 1-2 beers and I certainly looked the part but no breathalyzer or blood test was given. I spent the night in jail and was charged with public drunkenness. Do I have a fighting chance if I show the court my prescription and have my parents to attest to my 2 beers tops story? I have never been in any trouble, am prior service, 100 % disabled through VA and the medicine was prescribed for my kidney infection.
Hope so, best to ask your lawyer none of us have your case.

I have found the vehicle and even have pictures of the the damage to his vehicle.
