    Wednesday Jan 20 | via Silicon Alley Insider 

    I can vividly remember the first time I binge-watched a TV show: Jean-Xavier de Lestrade's eight-hour crime documentary "The Staircase," a rare splurge on a DVD boxed set, bought because it reminded me of the great southern gothic murder trials of my childhood, like the Haysom murder trial recently profiled in the New Yorker. I remember it so well because, shortly after starting it, my then-girlfriend and I got into one of the biggest fights of our then-new relationship.

I got arrested for a DUI. I blew at the station but they are saying I refused. What do I do now?
When I got pulled over I refused to blow. After I got to the station I blew twice. The first time it did not take and he told me to blow harder so I did. After I blew it beeped and he told me to have a seat. They gave me a hard copy of what I thought was my BAC. From there this guy made me take several pictures over and over and thought it was funny. I got irritated. I sat down in the waiting area and that guy brought me ANOTHER ticket and made me retake my pictures again. I went to my attorney with my papers and it says that I refused to blow but I didn't. Even after I blew and I asked the guy what the number meant. They told me to have a seat. I am screwed over because now it says I refused but I blew twice. I'm in tears. What am I supposed to do now? Help!

I got pulled for failure to maintain lane. The officer made me walk in a straight line UP HILL on black gravel. I got a DUI... when I got to the station I blew a .07. I don't feel like I was judged fairly before he even arrested me. Needless to say I am already dealing with another DUI case and I wanted to get your thoughts on this case to see what you think will happen because I am afraid. Don't they normally have to give you the eye test first? Is there anything I can do? I have a lawyer for both of the cases. This one is is before my other case which i will ask about later.

My case is complicated, But i have had 3 DWI convictions. The first one was apparently not reported to DMV (2001) and It cause a ripple effect to my record sending me into a perm suspension. upon my hearing i was granted a conditional license for 3 years and IID for that time , on top of that an additional 4 years because of the repercussion of the "re stacking" of my case and record. The judge originally imposed the sentence of 18 mos probation ( completed). 1 year IID, restitution and 4 year revocation.
