Stopped for DUI in Allghny Co, Blood extracted -no results yet- Not FSB tested, With Preliminary Hearing by Summons, What To Do?
Stopped following an officer's observation of a non-signaled right turn on red, then a not following traffic device (ran a yellow/red). Officer questioned drinking, I responded "yes moderately", proceeded to ask me from the car, I declined the FSB, politely stating I prefer not to. Taken into station, after extended wait, had blood drawn for testing alcohol content. Ultimately released to a friend. Received a Preliminary Hearing by Summons letter, the officer's observation is summarized as above, additionally asserting glassy eyes, alcohol on my person, slurring, stumbling -all of which are inaccurate- WRT the prelim hearing, what expectations should I have? What is advised prior to attending? Get Representation? Is no-prima facie possible If my blood is legal BAC, as i anticipate?
I would if I were you because there are too many legal issues that have to be ironed out.
I was cited last night for an underage. What will happen next as I plead not guilty? And how will affect my records?
The story goes I went out partying and came back and passed out on the bathroom floor of the dorms. I was found by the RAs and I was taken to the hospital and cited. I was as cooperative to both the police and hospital staff and upon being taken back the officer told me to plea not guilty and they would dismiss the charges because I was very nice and cooperative with them. I know I will have to go to court to fight the citation but is it likely that the officer can help dismiss the charge? And if I do get not guilty will it affect my record? I can't afford a lawyer and I don't want this one mistake to ruin my future career plans.
The biggest concern may be that you will lose your license if convicted. It will be suspended. An attorney may be...
For a DUI first time offender, what are the chances of going to jail for the following set of charges?
35 780-113 A31 (Lead) Prohibited Acts. 75 3802 A1* Driving under the Influence of Alcohol or controlled substance. 75 3802 C* Driving under the Influence of Alcohol or controlled substance (I assume this is the most serious). 75 4302 A1 Periods for Requiring Lighted Lamps. Also, a "small amount" of either mj or hash was found (35 789-113A31 Prohibited Acts M - 1 count). This was on the police report but NOT on the Preliminary Hearing Notice, which seems like it's not part of the charges? Also, the person was only given a breath test, not a blood test, if that makes any difference.
Provided "DUI first time offender" doesn't leave open the possibility that this person has an extensive record for...

I was driving a SUV(rental) which had tail lights not working for which the cop stopped us. Unfortunately I had a few drinks before. I passed the formal tests(step by step walk and leg rise test). But failed the breath analyzer test(0.10% which is 0.2 higher than the limit). The cops towed the rental car and took me to the hospital for blood test(I think this is for illegal drug test-which I don't take). The cop didn't take my license and straight away tell me that this is a DUI case. This is my first driving offence. I recently moved to pittsburgh and I have a different state license. What would be the consequences for this?
Until the results of the blood test are available, at least some of the potential consequences can not be determined....
