What can I do about a DUI?
A friend of mine took two sips of whiskey before getting into his vehicle , he hadn't slept in 48 hours and fell asleep at the wheel and wrecked . He was found six hours later and brought to the hospital and put in the ICU . Two weeks after he got out he went to the police station to check for tickets and they told him his record was clean as it was before the wreck . A year later he tried to get his vehicle back on the road and was told he had fines . He has a DUI , and a missed court date . He was not notified of either in person or by mail . What can he do ? He has already went in to reschedule a court date for his missed one .
First he needs an attorney. Second the facts as you have stated do not add up completely. Robert Driessen

How long does a DWI failed sobriety test stay on your driving record if the criminal charges are dropped via Article 894?
I was arrested for DWI in September 2010 after attending an LSU football game after failing a breathalyzer. In 2013, the charges were dismissed via Article 894, but has not been expunged. I did a self query of LA DMV records and the license suspension is still on there. Will this be on my record for 10 years as if I was convicted, and if not when can I expect this to disappear? Thnaks
While you pled under 894, unless you go through the subsequent step of getting an expungement of the arrest records...
Can I be charged with a 3rd offense DUI?
The first time was dismissed and I pleaded to careless operation. The second time I pleaded first offense and it was expunged later. 7 years later I get charged with third offense.
Not if your first offense was dismissed. DA's make mistakes, hire a local DUI lawyer to fight the alleged prior.
What can happen to my insurance rate after the DMV hearing but before the court hearing?
During a DWI checkpoint, I had to do the FST and then was taken to the station for a breathalyzer. The machine did not register so I was arrested for "refusal to blow". My DMV administrative hearing was last month and had gotten recalled because the cop did not send in all of the correct paperwork. As a result, my license is not suspended and I do not need to get SR22 insurance. My next court date is next month, and I am hoping to have the DUI charges reduced. In the meantime, can my insurance rate go up since I have not been convicted/charged for DUI? And if my charges do get reduced, will the DUI still show up for insurance companies and will my insurance rate still go up? Thanks.
This all has to do with when you get "audited" by your insurance company. It usually only happens once every several...
