Dolores Law

I was ignorant of the law and refused a breath test. Is there anyway I can save my license.
I am a middle aged woman, do not drink very much or very often and was pulled over. My husband was intoxicated, argued with the officer and I was deemed drunk. I felt antagonized by the officer and confused as to why he was arresting me as I was not intoxicated. I thought if I took the breath test I would only make things worse. When the office told me to sign the paper saying I was refusing the test, I did not read the paper as I did not have my glasses and thought the officer was telling me the complete content of what I was signing. Is there any way to keep my license. I have never been arrested, have no recent traffic violations and need to drive to make a living.
Probably not. Ignorance of the law is not a defense or excuse to prohibited conduct. The fact that you signed the...
First Time DUID methamphetamine
I got arrested for the first time in my life somewhere in CO (only have had a couple speeding tickets and nothing else prior) and I am twenty-five. I was spooked as I passed a Sheriff going the opposite way when I saw him turn around on the road a hundred yards behind me and I turned into a driveway which gave him suspicion to follow me. The Sheriff arrested me on DUID for being high on Meth and false plates on my car. I had insurance. I went to jail for the weekend until I could post bail. He said he could smell it and I agreed to take a UA at the station. He had me do a test where I stood with my feet together outside, head tilted way back and tell him when 30 seconds was up. They searched my car without consent, but I had nothing on me or in my car. This is first time arrested.
I'm not sure I see a question here. You might want to rephrase.
Do I need to get a lawyer, or will it be cheaper to take the DUI?
I recently got a DUI, I am under 21 years old and had a beer and a sip of a mixed drink at a club. Two hours later I drove a friend home who had too much to drink, and got pulled over for failure to dim brights. I didn't refuse anything and cooperated with it all and got taken to the station for a breathalyzer, I blew a .116 which was a lot higher than I thought. I had taken NyQuil that night from a cold and didn't know it had that effect. But I didn't know it had an effect till the next day so I couldn't tell the officer about it.
Alcohol related driving charges are serious in nature and can have a lasting impact on your life. For that reason, I...
Will I get a DUI? Confused
I hit a parked car. I was slightly drunk, combined with getting used to a new medication (my psychiatrist told me not to drive the day after taking it, but I did). There was no damage to the car that I hit. I did a roadside sobriety test, but was super panicked and had a breakdown. They didn't arrest me or make me go to the hospital, just to call a friend. I was ultimately ticketed for careless driving and expired license . The thing I'm worried about is the court appearance is mandatory according to the ticket. Can I still be charged with a DUI?
Yes, it is still possible. From your post, it appears that you didn't take a blood or a breath test. This makes it...
I'm 17 and I got charged with my first DUI 0.05 and it's been my second hit and run what might I face in court?

2nd Hit and Run and you're 17???? Kid, maybe it's best to give up your license before you kill someone..... Well,...
How high are my chances of jail after a first time DUI?
I am facing a Dui charge and reckless driving. I crashed into a pole and the pole won. The pole has maybe a dent in it. My car is totaled and I was able to walk away with small scratches from the airbags going off. I bailed myself out and this is my first offense. My BAC was for sure at least .08. Is it possible to get a plea bargain at all? I have a disabled son. I can't go to jail and leave him for an extended period of time.
I've never has a client with circumstances as you've described, get an actual jail sentence.
What are the driving options for a 3rd or subsequent DUI conviction?
My husband obtained his 4th DUI in March of this year. He has accepted a plea bargain that entails of 60 days in jail, and 3 years of probation,some of which involves a drug/alcohol program. Upon completion,the charge won't be a felony on the record. As of now he has a valid license he obtained it post arrest. We know after the sentencing hearing the license will be suspended. He needs to work. How does getting at least a restricted license work? How can he have a DMV hearing while in jail? If he doesn't go to a hearing can he apply for a restricted license later? It's detrimental that he works after jail because I currently am not working. The DUI cost me my job because I had to care for the kids instead of work. I won't be able to work again until at least mid July. I'm just afraid he won't be able to drive at all. Help?
DMV will determine how and when he will be allowed to drive. More facts are needed to fully answer that question, like...
