What should i expect for my first court hearing, regarding my first DUI?
.08 alcohol percentage plus BAL and the responding officer said that i blew a .16 in to the breathalizer but it was not listed on my ticket. A couple days prior to the accident i had smoked marijuana, . My ticket said it was a misdemeanor and there were no innocent by standers. I was the only one left on the scene, the officers kept asking me who else was in the car and i told them no one. But there was an individual that was driving for me because i was intoxicated. The car was brand new and i panicked and did not know what to tell the officers for insurance purposes. I knew if i said that someone else was driving my car my insurance would not cover the car which was determined a total loss.
It sounds like you are facing full blowen DUI charges. It is likely that you will be charged with driving over thel...
Can I get in trouble for recanting a DV report if I was intoxicated at the time and can't recall what was said?
My ex boyfriend and I got into an argument and I panicked after he and I had a power struggle and wouldn't let me leave. I was intoxicated at the time and remember bits and pieces of what happened that night including him telling me he didn't want me to leave. He is being charged with DV and Entrapment. I am no longer with him and don't want to be, but I want to retract my report based on the fact that I was intoxicated at the time and was in a state of panic. However, I don't want to get in trouble. I just want this to all go away and to be left alone. I don't want to testify. Will they make me?
You should consult with a lawyer who can best direct you in recanting your prior version of events. The risk is you...

Will I have to go to Jail?
2.5 yrs ago, i was convicted of a DUI. I had not been paying my fine and stopped going to my dui classes(1 class left). 2 weeks ago i called the court to make a payment and I was told i owed $2,150. They also told me i had a warrant for my arrest, stemming from failing to complete my classes, since last September '14. I placed myself on calendar and paid my court fine in full. Plus, paid the remainder $240 balance for my classes. Both the courthouse and AA program had my wrong address, but i never followed up until recently. I'm seeking reinstatement into the AA classes to complete them, to have my warrant removed and not to go to jail. What are my chances? Side note: this would be my 2nd time reinstated.
You probably won't go to jail but you need to correct his ASAP. Get to court and ask to see the judge. Better still,...

I was convicted of a DUI, I appealed and my lawyer did not appear and it was dismissed. He says I cannot do anything about it...
First he told me it was dismissed, then he told me we would have lost because there is too much testimony against me. I said I thought appeals were only addressing legal issues of the trial. He said no, they can use the testimony. Then he says, I have to be honest, I didn't get the notice of a court date and it was dismissed because we did not show and we have no recourse. I have paid him already, of course.
Of course this is a bad situation. At the very least you should get your money back. You may be able to hire different...
