How do you proceed with a DWI Case when a person is in parole?
My boyfriend is on parole and got a DWI. We had 3/4 drinks each. He was given 3 sobriety tests and passed the first 2 and refused the last. There was no breathalyzer given or blood test to determine the amount of alcohol consumed. Because we were in his home town and they ran his record we assumed they were just giving him a hard time. But with so much at stake with this charge no what actions do we take now?
He really has two issues: the DWI & the parole revocation. He would put himself in thr best position to not have his...

Can a DWI dismissal have any impact on the ALR hearing?
My DWI case has been dismissed prior to my ALR hearing. Is the dismissal relevant at all to the ALR hearing?

Charged with DWI AND ACCIDENT I was not driving.
Last weekend I went out drinking with a friend. She was driving her car. On the way home she hit another car. I was threatened by the people we hit and fled. I was charged with the dwi and accident and she was not even asked for her license. She is now ignoring me. Will she be forced to go to court to say she was driving? Is this common?
This is not common, but I have seen it happen. At trial, the State will attempt to prove that you were driving. The...
Should I find a new attorney for my DWI case?
I received a dwi in June 2017. My case has been reset 3 times and I've yet to speak to my attorney directly. I paid the initial 1500 retainer fee after doing the best research I could online. I have a theft charge from 2002 that I received deferred adjudication and a theft by check that was dismissed in 2005. I refused the breathalyzer test. Each time I speak with the legal aide she explains the process and says the attorney will reach me closer to the reset date and is busy in trial. They have the discovery in office but I'm not sure what is recommended. Should I seek new counsel or does this seem standard for this situation?
Lawyers do not like to knock others when we really don't know all the details. But, I will say that IF the lawyer has...
How can I receive a dui when cop rufuses me a breathlizer?
Was the DD this night for a buddy. I got pulled over and asked if I had been drinking. I told the cop I had one beer and it was an hour before driving. He sobriety tested me and I passed everything but gave me a dui. So I asked for a breathlizer and got denied. Do I have a valid chance of getting the dui dismissed?
There is always a chance for getting a DWI dismissed, but not solely on the basis of not being provided a breathalyzer....

I was asleep in my car at a truck stop. drivers seat Was reclined and my girlfriend had the keys and was not in the car and we had been there for over a hour. The police showed up and woke me up and started questioning me. Then pulled me out and did tests and that they were arresting me on suspicion of dwi. I asked if I failed any of those test he said not nessarly. Then he proceeded to search me and found some drugs. And charged me on those as well. So what I'm asking is if I beat the dwi will they have to throw the other charges out?
The short answer is NO. Getting the DUI charges dismissed will not automatically dismiss the drug charge. However, you...
