If arrested for not blowing roadside test
I was parked, looking at my phone trying to find my motel. short story I had beer n the car and was asked to take a sobriety test and failed as does everyone, I would not blow the roadside and was arrested my rental car towed I was transported to the police station I was not mirandized or given a phone call. I never was asked to take a chemical breath test, urine, or blood test. I was then put in Volusia county jail for two days to see the judge who set my bail at 5000 for 1000 fine if convicted. I had to pay 3500 to a bonds man in Vermont to get out of jail. I had to hire lawyer in Florida to represent me 1000 retainer 250 an hour. what I want to ask is can I sue for the money that it cost me to be locked up on the fact of my civil rights were violated.
Everybody fails a sobriety test ????????????hmm interesting will have to disagree. Perhaps but don't see any civil...
How reliant is the BAC Back Calculation given what I blew at the station?
Hello I got pulled over last night for not having my headlights on (there are many street lights so I didn't realize it). I had some beers to drink and was asked to do sobriety tests. I feel that I did fine and the officer would not tell me what I did wrong when he asked if I would take a breath test. I refused the test on the street and was taken back to the station where they gave a test. I blew a .066. The test was taken 59 minutes after I was pulled over. Given this information it seems I might be on the line for being over the limit. How does the Back Calculation work and if it does stand that theoretically was above the limit, I assume it wouldn't be by much so what are my chances of defending this successfully? I have heard that the Back Calculation has to make assumptions to do the math and is sometimes not relied heavily or that people can get off because there is no possibility to have theoretically known with 100% certainty when I was pulled over.
What you are talking about is retrograde extrapolation. A retrograde extrapolation requires knowledge of what you...
I would like to sue the Saint Albans State Police for defamation of character, where should I start?
I was pulled over for speeding and subsequently charged with possession and trafficking 880 grams of cocaine. The State Trooper saw hair ties on the floor, which apparently are used to package heroin. This gave him a reason to search my Sister-In-Laws car, which she bought at an auction 3 months prior. After a test kit came back positive for cocaine they then turned the two (2) boxes of baking soda that was in the back into 800 grams of cocaine. Not only did I lose my job because, of this, I have not been able to get a job since the three articles were printed and a segment on the Channel 3 news. I've also had to help my daughter cope with problems she now has with her classmates because, of the unwanted publicity and false accusations. At this point it has become harassment because, it's not the first time this happen. My name has been slandered beyond repair and I can't support myself or my daughter without a job. I have more to say and I'll be willing to do so, when the time comes. Thank you for your time, Kristy L.Sweeney

My ex got DUI#6 in Vt. He had plea deal for 18 month DUI court program, but was not accepted into program. Will he go to jail?
My ex got DUI #6 in Chittenden County while on probation for DUI #5 in Windsor County. Chittenden and Windsor gave him a plea deal for violation of DUI #5 and for his sentence for DUI #6. That deal was that my ex could do an 18 month outpatient program called the Windsor County DUI court. Well, my ex violated probation at least one time that I know of, since the deal. There might even have been more instance of probation violation. At any rate, my ex was never accepted into the DUI court program. He had a status conference with judge in Chittenden County this past week. I see he now has a court date in September for a "sentencing hearing". Does this mean that he will be going back to prison? Chittenden orginally wanted him to do 2 to 6 years for DUI #6. Also, this person is a convicted violent felon in Florida with a lengthy history of domestic violence, DUI"s, a firearm charge/conviction and dozens of violation of probation and/or house arrest. Also, why is the sentencing hearing 6 weeks away if he has already admitted guilt? Shouldn't he just have gone directly to prison since he didn't follow the terms of the plea deal?
the likely reason that the sentencing hearing is six weeks down the road is that I am sure a presentence investigation...
Does it make sense for me to hire a lawyer or should I just plea guilty?
I was arrested for a dui in Vermont, this is my first offense. From my understanding, Vermont does not have a work permitted or hardship license. Is it even worth it for me to fight for it. I'm not contesting that I was speeding or over the limit, I just want to be able to drive to work. Like I said this is my first dui and I don't know the process, I'm willing to pay any fines I have to but I don't want to receive jail time. I'm just feeling so overwhelmed.
In response to your question and with my personal inclination, I would highly reccommend that you hire a Criminal...
