Will I have prior convictions brought up in a jury trial? I have had two DUI s' in 7 years.
A month ago I was at a convenience store, My friend had driven me there from the bar, we had gotten into an argument, he made advances to me. I was walking, he picked me up. He turned off the car, was going into the store as well. However, the attendants did not allow customers to go in, they had a technician working on the ATM. My friend tried to start the car, it would not start. My battery was bad. He knew I was mad at him, and he left me. I sat back in my car, keys were in the ignition. The officer knew I had been drinking, ran a breathalizer test, my B A C was high. I was just sitting in the car, it was cold. I did not want to drive, the car did not start for my friend. I was trying to figure out what to do. Right now, my Attorney is going to request a jury trial for me at the Pre trial on February 1st. Will the Prosecutor, and can he bring up my priors? I am very distraught, upset, scared. Thank you, please your advice? Sincerely, Lynn.

How do I know if I will be charged with a DUI or not?
I was pulled over last night, but not arrested. I participated in the field sobriety tests and completed them without issue, but blew a .101. The officer said that he did not have enough to arrest me and let me get a cab home, and that is all of the information I have. I am not sure if just because they could not arrest me means that they will not be able to charge me. Is it possible for me to still receive a charge?
Yes. If the prosecutor brings a charge you would receive a summons and complaint at a later date. If you are charged...
