What should I do (OVI/Paraphanillia charges)?
at 11:30 pm i was pulled over by a state trooper for suspicious driving (I stopped at a green light with my turn signal on). I did not know the area as i've never been there, two people in the car were from there and one told me to turn while the other told me to go straight (which is why i stopped) I've got a clean record not even a ticket. I had smoked earlier that day but was no longer affected the trooper smelled weed and ended up searching my car finding a used bowl. It was someone elses in the car but when he asked whose it was i was so scared i said mine. i also had trouble counting on the sobriety test but i'm bad with numbers because i have mild dislexyia and it was cold out so i was shaking. I'm a college student and i was three hours away from my campus in Hardin county, OH

DUI/Loss of Physical Control on record
I was charged with a DUI, convicted of Loss of Physical Control. I did not lose my driving privileges and did not receive any points on my license. I was turned down for a job because of my record. I received the report showing I have a Loss of Physical Control/DUI. Should it be listed as a DUI if I wasn't convicted of that? Should my record reflect just the Loss of Physical Control?
Your information really needs some clarification. I assume that you are saying that you were charged with a DUI but the...

Will make suppression case be dismissed overall for a DUI charge?
I was pulled over supposedly for not stopping at a blinking red light. The cop asked me the typical questions. Long story short I did the field sobriety tests, and was arrested. I got a lawyer, and the cops dash cam. the cop said I did these things. stepped off the line, raised arms for balance, had slurred speech, and based on my low test scores might have been because I was cold and nervous, and I asked me to do a portable breath test to sum it all up at the end, and i was arrested. We are having, the breath test suppressed because I was cold and nervous might have been why my tests were low, the traffic stop, stepping of the line, and raised arms for balance, slurred speech all asked to be suppressed. whats my chance to have it dismissed? all of this was shown on the cops dash cam
These questions are best post to your attorney. The only answer any of us can give you is maybe.
Will my suppression case be dismissed overall for a DUI charge based on this information?
I was pulled over for not stopping at a blinking red light. did the field sobriety tests, and was arrested. The cop arrested me based on, slurred speech, red glossy eyes, smell of alcohol, stepping off the line, raising arms for balance, putting my foot down after 30 sec, and the portable breath test he only had me do based on my tests, and that I was maybe nervous and cold in -1 -5 degree weather. I have a lawyer, and we are asking for those things to be suppressed because it all shows i didn't do those things on the dash cam, no slurred speech, I stopped at the light, cant step off a line if there is no line, and I blew because I was overall maybe cold and nervous, and had no slurred speech in the video, and didn't raise my arms for balance., and my foot was down after 30 seconds.
It is tough to answer your question without seeing the video, the police report and knowing if your attorney wrote a...
I just received my second OVI in 7 years. What punishment am i looking at? Any suggestions on what I should do?
The first OVI i received was in September of 2008. I was 19 years old. Basically I just want to know what to expect and would appreciate any advice.
The mandatory minimum penalty is not enhanced by the prior OVI, however, because the other one was so recent the judge...
