Arrested for DUI and speeding
Hi my bother-in-law who's from Mexico City and was staying here for a couple weeks work related , got arrested over the weekend in Fayette County, WV for a DUI and speeding at 100mph , he was suppose to flight back to Mexico on Thursday. He has a Mexico drivers license and has never lived here before therefor he is not familiar with the driving laws.. He was bail out by his boss and was told can't leave the county until his court date, but his court might take up to a month. Can he ask for some type of permission and come back for his court date? what are the chances that he might get his case dismiss or clear since he is not from here or lives here's at all. Should he get a lawyer? What are his best options ?He's being charge with a felony and a misdemeanor . He's staying at hotel !

What does it mean to be summoned to court for the status of DUI deferral program?
I was convicted of my first DUI two years ago in which I blew the minimum limit .097. I attended the 6 week drug and alcohol class a year ago. I did not have the interlock system installed in my car. Is this the reason for which I am being summoned? Because I was under the impression that I did not have to have the interlock given the circumstances of the situation.
Minimum limit in all 50 states is .08
How soon after an accident does a urine test have to be adminstered in order to be valid for DUI?
I was recently involved in an accident where I was at fault and was transported to the hospital for injuries before the cops arrived. The nurse said that the cop said if I did not urinate that they would catheter me. Well they never catheter me and it took me 4 or 5 hours to pee. I had Xanax in my urine from a few days before. So my two questions are can I beat it if they charge me since they cannot prove I was under the influence while driving, and how long after the accident do they have to administer the urine test? Surely there's a limit for it to be admissable.
The investigating officer can and most likely will get a subpoena for your medical records. You were not under arrest...
