after two years they threw it out
Can you sue? of course. Can you win? It will depend on the facts. Getting the criminal case thrown out does not mean...
I was arrested for speeding and dui after field test. I took blood test. When released I was NOT given a citation or ticket.
I was instructed I was pulled over for just speeding. Field test went well. I have a fused spine and one leg longer than other.
Here in Georgia, even if you aren't issued a citation, an officer can still take out a warrant to prosecute.
I just found out I owe $55 to state CA, when DUI was is FL. In '10 I turned in CA license, got new driver license in Fl after
after '09 DUI. Just tried to get TN license, found out CA license on hold until I show I completed everything for DUI and pay $55. I had moved to FL, it happened in FL, I don't have any paperwork, FL gave me a driver's license.... what's going on?
You didn't list the exact date of the DUI or when you got the FL license, but my feeling is that your DUI was committed...
Will my sentence change?
I was on probation for driving on a suspended license it was two cases I was sentenced to flatten both my cases but they would run concurrent I never turned myself in it's been 3 years and i want to turn myself in now but I'm trying to see if I will get the same sentence or if I need to get an attorney to avoid more jail time.
I'm confused. You were on probation and you violated? What did you never turn yourself in on?
I was issued a citation for driving on a revoked license in TN. My license was revoked for dui. Will I get jail time?
I was given the opportunity to get a restricted license but couldn't afford the fees to get the license. My only legal issue ever was the dui.
Jail time is certainly a strong possibility - especially if you are revoked for DUI. Contact a lawyer in Williamson...

It is her 3rd DUI in 16 months - she refused the "deal" and now has court / trial next week. She has been running wild for 3 years - walked out on all 4 children ages 2-6 and puts on a great front in court... she always seems to get out of everything... failed drug tests while on probation, no place to live, bounces kids all over the place but DCS wanted to keep giving her chances.. meanwhile she got off probation in April, for the 2 DUI's and got 1 DUI and 2 driving on revoked in a few months - she never installed her interlock and continues to still drive the kids around... how do people like her keep avoiding jail and what can be done so she has consequences before she hurts her kids or others in her path....DCS was certainly was no help. if convicted, how long till she goes to jail
I doubt she'll walk away from this. Keep in mind though that we are criminal defense attorneys here and not...
Is it possible to plea down a DUI in TN before the results of a blood test come back.
Was arrested for DUI in TN and refused chemical test although the officer obtained a warrant and I had to take one anyway. I feel that the results will show that I was over the legal limit and my also show another chemical in my system as well. I was told the blood test could take 4-6 months to come back and was wondering if it was possible with a good DUI attorney to plea down to a lesser charge such as reckless driving before the results of the test come back.
Yes. When I was a prosecutor, I would routinely plea cases before the blood was back. Will a DA do so with a prior...
