Can you get charged w/DUI if in an accident, but not arrested and unwillingly gave blood at hospital while unconscious?
So, I had a head on collision that I barely survived, was barely even drunk, report says, BAC was .09...but if I never was arrested and didn't do a field sobriety or breathalyzer, and they just took my blood unwillingly at the hospital and while I didn't even know, is that legal?

Should I write a DUI leniency letter to my preliminary hearing judge before the hearing? Is is ok to do that?
I just heard its a good idea to write a letter to the judge before the hearing. that is may help me out.

Is there any way to get out of the ASAP requirement for Virginia DUI
My wife recieved her first offense DUI in april 2013 in Virginia Beach, VA 1 month before we moved. I deployed overseas and she was scheduled to move back to Pittsburgh, PA.
