Did they have the right to place me under arrest when I exhibit signs of intoxication due to extremely low glucose levels ?
Approached by a police officer while parked in my vehicle checking my glucose level. Type one diabetic for 25 years and experienced extreme symptoms of low glucose. My meter read my glucose level at 41. While waiting for the EMS the officer used very strong intimidation tactics to make me take the field sobriety test instead of waiting for the EMS to arrive. While waiting I consented to the eye test then explained that I would not do anything else until EMS checked me out. EMSchecked my glucose level with a reading of 48 and provided me with fast acting glucose to prevent further decline. My level got up to 86 and I was then arrested for DWI based on my behavior, eye test, and the smell off alcohol. At the station I blew 0.05 but still placed under arrest for DWI. The officer stated that he believed I was intoxicated at the time he made contact with me when I asked why I was being charged when I was under the .08 legal limit. How can I be charged with DWI when under the legal limit and his suspicion of intoxication was based on the behavior I exhibited while experiencing hypoglycemia levels so low that I was experiencing hypoglycemia shock with high probability of passing out?
You need to consult with an experienced DWI attorney immediately. You may very well have some defenses here, but you'll...
Where do I go from here?
I was arrested for a DUI in September 2014. I have been trying to fight the charges since then. I finally went to court on June 19 and accepted the plea agreement at the request of my previous attorney. To make a long story short; I totaled my car. My sister was in the passenger seat. She was taken to the hospital and was treated for minor injuries. I rode in the ambulance with her. I was not intoxicated. However, I did have half of a glass of wine before we left the house. On our way back home it started to rain. I had bald tires, the road was slick and I hit a tree, trying to navigate a sharp turn. The officer came to the hospital and asked if I would take the breath test. I informed him that I would, but I had a severe sinus infection, so the test may not register. Then, he asked f
You already plead guilty so I don't exactly understand what your question is. Did you plead already?
Do I need an attorney for an MIP in Benton Country in the state of Araknsas to get it off my record?
I have had only 1 speeding ticket prior to this ticket and no other legal trouble.
Probably. Depending on which court you're charged in (there are numerous, both big and small) and which agency arrested...
Would out-of-state DWI/DUIs count towards the number of offenses in a new state? Specifically from GA to AR.
I have a valid out-of-state license which was suspended for not submitting to the field sobriety tests. I requested a blood test be administered, but the officer charged me with refusing the BAC tests entirely. I am curious this will be treated as a first offense DUI in Arkansas. The Georgia offense occurred 4-5 years ago.
You are giving some mixed information here. Are you asking specifically about a prior DWI conviction or a prior refusal...
Will a 4 year-old DWI-1 show up on 3 year MVR (for employment purposes) performed by a third-party vendor?
My employer is running a Driving History Report through a 3rd party vendor (IIX). According to their website, they may only legally look back 3 years. I have run an insurance and commercial traffic violations check through the DFA website, and both have come back clean. It is my understanding that a DWI will not show up on a 3 year driver history, just as it has not shown up on my personal checks. However, my employer has said that sometimes old DWIs show up anyway, even beyond the 3 years. The employer is aware of my driving history, but I can't drive for the company until my MVR no longer shows the DWI. We haven't run it since last year, when it most certainly showed up (within the 3 years).
If they are definitely only looking back 3 years, and the conviction was more than 4 years ago, it should not show up....
Possible outcomes for DWI and Endangering a minor in the 2nd degree?
My not so intellegent husband was pulled over for DWI and had my 5 year old in the car. His BAC was 0.12%. They arrested him for DWI and Endangering the Welfare of a Minor 2nd. Does he need an attorney for this? He is obviously guilty so should he just plead guilty? What are the possible outcomes for him? Also, he had 2 DWI's 13 years ago, and a Domestic Battery in the 3rd charge 2 years ago that resulted in 4 days jail time.
He absolutely needs an attorney and right away. I would contact an attorney in your area that has a lot of experience...
