Do my Miranda rights have to be read when pulled over on a traffic violation which turned into a dui?
I was pulled over for supposedly blinding the officer with my headlights. Which the officer was not facing my vehicle at the time. I had come from playing bingo at a casino and had a beer earlier during the evening. I had been fighting a cold and had a bad toothache so I had taken cold medication earlier that day and a numbing gel for the pain on my tooth. Later that evening When the officer pulled us over he said he smelled alcohol coming from the vehicle , which he did because the 2 other people I was with had been drinking and 1 spilled a drink on his jeans before we left. He asked me questions I answered them, he ran my license and a warrant from 2 years prior came up. Which I had no knowledge of and the dmv never told me anything when I renewed it last year.
The short answer is that the police only have to read your Miranda rights during a custodial interrogation. Any...

How common is it for a lawyer to be able to get a DUI reduced to a reckless driving if the persons blood alcohol level was low
Just curious as to how common it is for this to happen in Nevada especially if its a first offense, you where extremely cooperative and your blood alcohol level was really low, like .09 low.
A lot better than if the person was three times the legal limit or really "high"
