How do I write an appeal to the court for a guilty DUI plea?
I'm trying to write a plea to the court of Hampton to appeal my guilty plea to a DUI less safe. I was unaware that I was being charged for the DUI until I was standing in front of the judge and the cop that pulled me over for an illegal U turn told me I was being charged for that and that the fine would only be 300$.. but in the moment of the judge asking me what I plead I was frozen and pled guilty to this DUI. I'm just trying to figure out what to not put in this letter for the judge to use against me.
This is not proper. You cannot simply write an "appeal" to the judge. Generally, all appeals are extremely difficult to...

Should I take a reckless driving charge in lieu of dui?
I had drinks with dinner but I have a very severe case of sleep apnea which caused me to go to sleep at the wheel and get pulled over. I did not do a field sobriety test. No BAL was done because I felt ill and went to the hospital. I don't want to take a reckless driving charge if I can beat this

"Non-Pross" dismissal in GA for DUI and failure to yield. Other party suing after insurance has paid. Do they have a case?
Involved in a collision at night. Charged with DUI and "failure to yield". Witness stated that I was at fault in the collision however the state said they had insufficient evidence to pursue a DUI charge. Furthermore the Solicitor contacted the victim who told him that the insurance company had already paid so the State also dismissed the traffic violation as "non-pross". I have the court verdict in-hand. Does this person have a strong case to sue me? They are asking for 25000$ or $100,000 in $100 dollar installments per month.
Is it a lawsuit or just a claim? Assuming it's still just an insurance claim for personal injuries to the other driver,...
I was sober, and do not do drugs, but was arrested for DUI and given a blood test in GA, on suspicion. Should I get a lawyer?
I was going to a festival yesterday in Henry County GA. I was pulled over at the entrance. I was driving my brothers car he let me borrow. It turns out I had a brake light out. The officer asked me to step out to "write me a warning." I was completely sober. I also do not do drugs. The officers kept saying I was "nervous" and asked to search my car. They found nothing, besides my brothers prescription to aderol I didn't know was in there, which I am also legally prescribed to. I had taken mine earlier in the day. Nothing else was found. More police arrived and I was given a field sobriety test. I did that, and was suddenly placed in cuffs and arrested. I was shocked. I kept telling them I don't do drugs, nor had I drank anything. I was taken to jail, sober as a bird, and given a blood test. The results will be negative. However, my car was impounded, etc. and its a hassle. Can I get the negative results and get this dropped myself or do I also need to pay for a lawyer? I am completely innocent. Also, can I sue or do anything about this? It is outrageous. They profiled me because I was a festival goer & probably thought it was a safe bet I was on drugs. But I don't do drugs. Period.
Government is immune from prosecution unless civil rights are violated. Hiring an attorney is up to you but Henry...
