How do I know if I got a DUI? My ticket only shows two traffic civil infractions.. Also I blew .17 and car was impounded..
I went out with friends after a crappy break up! We ended up in Rochester to see the lights and stopped at a bar called penny black.. I was the driver with two passengers.. we had beers and shots throughout the evening.. I was pulled over down town Rochester for stopping just over the crosswalk and the light turned green as I was looking at my GPS (not familiar with the area) to check my speed and where I was going to turn.. I then accelerated and apparently it says I was going 35+ in a 25.. Once pulled over, asked if I had been drinking.. so I was honest and got out of the car willingly and did three sobriety tests which I’m asuming I failed since I was arrested. They took me back to the station where I blew again and it was still a .17.. it was about 1am and I was released at 8am with a .05. My car was impounded and they also took my picture and fingerprints. My license was destroyed as well. I just received my court date with judge Asadoorian.. I’m very scared and confused and I don’t know exactly what to do or expect. My driving record is clean. But I have been arrested twice before and both were expunged after fines and community service. Neither were DUI related.
Sorry to hear about your current situation. Given the facts presented and that your car was impounded, the high BAC and...
Can a non-officer conduct the 15 minute test before a datamaster test in a dui/criminal investigation?
I was arrested (11/11/17) for Dui by Novi police. I was driven straight to the hospital for a blood draw after refusing medical attention. (I was in an accident before the arrest) After the hospital visit, I was sat on a bench for what seems like 3 minutes then fingerprinted by some kind of police service aid. This person had an entirely different uniform that suggests that she was not a police officer. Immediately after fingerprints I was given the datamaster test by a different male officer. The arresting officer or testing officer did not "monitor" for more than a few seconds. The police service aid only looked over me for maybe a few minutes. Was this process legal? Is the arresting officer responsible for watching of the "criminal"?
There are very specific procedures that the police with regards to administering a Datamaster test. If these procedures...
If I was just place on probation for misdemeaner for having marijuana illegally is it possible to get a marijuana prescription?
I was recently place on probation for having a marijuana pen at school. I do not have a med card for it but I was using it medically. I have ADHD, insomnia and anxiety. At first they gave me 90 days probation but now are trying to put me in a diversion program which will make me tear for a whole nother year. I haven't been able to sleep and my life has just been awful ever since I stopped. I just need to know if there is anything I can do to to be able to use medical marijuana again I'm 18 year old.
No. You have a conviction which now prevents you from obtaining a medical marijuana card.
Opinion on judge Asadoorian?
Have court coming up, and crazy nervous.. Any suggestions? How is she? Ugh
The first question I have is are you planning on retaining an attorney to represent you before the hearing? If not,...
Can I get my court fines reduced after pleading guilty to an impaired driving charge?
I was arrested for blowing a .08 and charged with an OWI, it was reduced down to a visibly impaired charge, which is a $300 fine. After accepting the plea, I went down to the clerk to receive the paperwork and noticed that I was being charged $2000 in court costs. Is there any way to get this cost lowered? I am going to school and working both full time and I cannot afford this.
