I told him it wasnt me I was not driving I just got in the car.. The policeman said I smell alcohol . Told me to get out of car. I did ask for dl and insurance gave him that.

Went to station I was belching cop became angry said that I refused to take breath test. Locked me up

Do I have any rights or steps I can take.
I was forced to take a drug test after a person who I had an O.O.P against called my job and said I used marijuana. I was told I had no choice and was taken to take a drug test. Though they said there would be an investigation, I was not given paperwork or answers regarding the investigation until they called to inform me I was terminated. Was this done correctly or were policies broken?
This is an employment law question. I'll change the category for you and suggest you take your policy manual from work...
Chances of getting DUI reduced after blowing a .083 in Illinois?
I'm an 18 year old girl who got pulled over for going 40 in a 30 mph zone last week. I was asked to do some field sobriety tests, which I failed— I would fail all these tests sober though as I have motor impairment problems (medically documented). I then blew a .092 in the field test, but at the station I blew a .083 on the reliable machine, and that's the BAC they cited me with. I have never gotten any sort of traffic citation before nor have I ever been in trouble with the law. What are the odds that I could get this reduced to something that won't show up as poorly on background checks for jobs and the like? I have a meeting with a lawyer tomorrow, but want to have an idea of what my chances are realistically.
You need to be patient and wait until tomorrow to discuss your situation with your attorney. Hopefully you will be...
Arrested for DUI, Blew UNDER the legal limit
I was arrested for a DUI because the officer believed I was under the influence of alcohol even though I blew under the legal limit, I believe I blew a .06. He pulled me over because I was speeding (67 in a 55) and improper lane usage "swerving". I only had one beer that night. I did however take some over the counter sleep meds earlier that night because I was planning on going to sleep but ended up driving my wife around bars because she was celebrating and needed a DD and I told the officer about the sleep meds. Will that hurt me in my case? I feel all charges should be dropped because I was clearly not intoxicated.
Unfortunately, you can blow under the legal limit and still be charged with DUI. That is because there are a few...
Prior DUIs, DMV report
Hi, I recently received a DUI in WI and was charged with a 4th offense.My prior 3 were all in IL back in the early 90's.During my WI lawyers research, she learned 1 of them had 2 "Certified statements of disposition" 1 states "Stricken off with leave to reinstate" and the other indicates,2 years later that "the case was dismissed". The WI judge says this DUI was dismissed and can not be held against me and now has charged me with a 3rd offense. And he couldnt understand why it is still part of my IL DMV record as a conviction. Does anybody know why or how I can fix this? Also knowing a 4th will revoke my license for life here in IL. What if I moved to WI and got a license there during the proceedings. If for some reason the courts found me guilty, whose DMV penatly would I have to follow?
Most likely there is a statutory summary suspension associated with the DUI. Even though the DUI was dismissed the SSS...
What happens if I have a dui conviction from the early 90's than take a plea bargain for reckless driving from another state?
I was convicted of a DUI in Cook County back in 1995. Recently I recieved one in a different state. They want to give me reckless driving. What would that mean for my IL license? I know the state I was arrested in would not suspend my license. Is there any plea I can safely take without IL suspending me? I have 1 speeding ticket in 10 years
This is a matter to raise with your defense attorney in the state where the reckless charge is pending
