Dewitt Law

DWI in a parking lot after someone backed into my car. Officer took me in for breath test and I passed but was still charged.
I called for assistance because other driver would not share insurance info. The officer talked to the lady that backed into me as I was traveling through the lot then arrested me. I was below legal limit and released but was still charged with DWI. The officer failed to get the other drivers info and did not ask who was driving my car as there were 3 people in it but just assumed that I was the driver. I was not. So a lawyer will be $1500 to go before the judge to say I was not driving , I was not drunk and the officer did not even do the job that he was called to do. And that was get the insurance info. So I also have over $1000 damage to my car. Is there a way to handle this that gets the facts straight but doesn t cost me the lawyer and damages to my car expenses?

What is the punishment for driving on a suspended license for multiple convictions of DUI? I've had three DUI's.
I was pulled over for a taillight and while the officer was running my name he found out that my license was suspended. He wrote me a ticket for the suspension and defective equipment. I'm allowed to petition the circuit court for a restricted license January 13, 2017 because that will be four years since my conviction for my DUI 3rd. But now that I got this ticket I'm not sure what to do. What are my punishments for the ticket? And should I petition the higher court before going to the lower court for the ticket?
You need an attorney. The penalties are harsh, including additional jail and suspension of license. It may be a good...
What are my chances of getting convicted for dui when no one saw me driving and I drank after an accident?
I was driving to work and someone cut me off making me run off the road and hit a curb. I then pulled my car in a parking space and got out. I believe I had a concussion because my face hit the steering wheel but I never told the cops this because I felt no pain at the time. A women came outside after my accident and saw my car asking if I was alright. I asked her not to call the cops yet because I already have a dui and don't need another charge.. I also told her I had to go speak with my boss first. I work at a bar and My boss told me not to worry about working so I took two large shots of rumple minz and chugged two beers. Before I knew it the cops showed up and asked me to come outside. I went outside and they gave me a breathalyzer and fst. I was then charged and arrested for 2nd offense dui. What are my chances of beating the this in court? Do the cops have a strong enough case against me?
This sounds like a strong case based on my understanding of the DUI case law in Virginia. I highly recommend you hire a...

I have a hearing for possession of marijuana how should I be getting ready l
I past three cops leaving a friends house and 2 mins down the road I got pulled over for illegal tint. It was a grinder with a small amount and old capsule with residue in the trunk. Plus old pecies throughout the car. I took ownership because I had a friend in the car. I'm looking for pointers and advice on what I should be doing. This is my first offense. I just would not like to have my license suspended or have it on my court. If I can avoid probation then that would be a plus.
The best thing you can do it stop making admissions on the internet and hire a criminal defense attorney. There may or...
