My boyfriend was pulled over for DUI in Colorado but had nothing to drink, is there any grounds for arrest?
The officer said failure to signal then gave him field test but no breathalizer. He had flip flops on so he had to do it barefoot on glass and rocks. Then they dont tell him anything and arrest him with no rights being read. He submitted a blood test and spent the mandatory hold of 16 hours in jail! We have no copy of the police report and they said it takes 2 motnhs for the blood test to come back! First of all if you are not read your rights can the case be thrown out? This man has absolutely no criminal history! Second no breathalizer...no grounds? This was a power hungry city cop. We need some serious advice. Can we request a copy of the police report? Also does a DUI blood draw kit just test for alcoohol or test for other substances.

This took place in Colorado and I was due to report to county jail 3 months ago. How do I go about rectifying this. I would like to get it over with- who do I contact?
You should probably contact a Colorado attorney to see if there's a Bench Warrant out for your arrest and to see if he/...
I am under 19 years old and was arrested for a DUI, position of less than 1 oz if marijuana, drug paraphernalia and under age drinking/driving, speeding. The DA has offered a plea bargain to drop all but the DUI, 2 years supervised probation, 10 days jail time, serving 2 and 48+ community service, plus fines. Should I take it?

Medical/Marijuana laws. The case that got me thinking about this just concluded, but I still wonder.
The defendant was convicted of a DUID. They said he had 10 nanograms in his blood and that was above the legal limit. Who decided that that is impaired? I know this man (very small area) and know he has been smoking for at least 20 years and is a 200 lb man. How does that compares to a kid who has just started smoking and is 130 lb? He is a "Red" card holder and as a condition of the PR bond was told to not partake in illegal drugs and had him take pee tests. Marijuana being legal and him having his card he continued to 'medicate.' All tests were positive. They withdrew his bond and gave him 30 days jail, and 11 mon. of alcohol classes stating that it is still illegal federally and that's what they are following. Then I see a protest on the news and the joints and officers. Curious

How can the state convict someone of a crime with absolutely no evidence other than an officer's testimony?
I was charged with DUI/DUI per se for drinking a beer inside of my parked car. We had our doors open for airflow with our legs sticking out and my keys were in my pocket. The officer, who rode up to the side of my car on a bicycle, wrote in his police report that I had the keys in the ignition. He flat out LIED! This officer was a complete jerk from the beginning of the ordeal. They cuffed me, didn't read Miranda rights to me, and took back to the police station where I blew a 0.105 BAC. My friend (and witness) who was in the car with me when this happened wrote a statement re-emphasizing that the keys were NOT in the ignition. How can they convict me of a DUI if it's mine and my friend's word against a cop's word?
Simply put, because the jury gets to assess the credibility of any witness and they believed the officer over you and...
