I blew a .11 breath test An got a dui is this a high number

Will my drunk in public charge be dismissed?
I had a sudden and horrible reaction to medication while walking my kids down the street in a stroller. I fell many times and my speech became slurred. I wouldn't let the neighbors help me due to the onset of confusion so the police were called. I admitted that I had had 1-2 beers and I certainly looked the part but no breathalyzer or blood test was given. I spent the night in jail and was charged with public drunkenness. Do I have a fighting chance if I show the court my prescription and have my parents to attest to my 2 beers tops story? I have never been in any trouble, am prior service, 100 % disabled through VA and the medicine was prescribed for my kidney infection.
Hope so, best to ask your lawyer none of us have your case.
DUI reduced to reckless driving.
I'm a nurse that was charged with dui with hopes that I can get it reduced to reckless driving. I read in a previous post that this is only a traffic violation and not a criminal offense. Is this correct and it will not show up on a background check.
Depending on how the background check is run, this may certainly show up. I would advise a criminal defense lawyer who...
How do I remove a ticket from my driving record
In March of 2015 I was arrested for DUI I did not have any thing to drink. I had an alcoholic beverage spilt on me so I smelled like alocohol.

You can appeal the Judge's decision by hiring an attorney who deals with appeals, but expungement takes longer. In...
What repercussions will I face in South Carolina after a DWI conviction in North Carolina?
Arrested for DWI in NC, refused the breath test and blood test came back as .16. Living in SC currently as well as at the time of the arrest. No grossly aggravating factors, 1 aggravating (.16), speeding was the reason for traffic stop but no reckless driving, clean driving record and have enrolled in SC ADSAP. Under the assumption this will be reported back to SC after conviction, what punishment will SC impose?
Generally there is a license suspension from state to state but I don't believe NC reports so you'll likely avoid that...

Can a DUI in one state violate probation in another?
My son's dad (now estranged) is on probation in GA for family violence and cruelty to children. He is now in SC (where my son and I are) and was arrested for a DUI in January. A local police officer ran an NCIC when I filed a report because he drove by my house, and the officer said that my ex has a warrant in GA for assault & battery and that he is violating probation by being here. My ex has court today, and I was wondering how this might play out. He has a long list of priors, including a DUI here over 10 years ago, multiple A&B, public drunk, and multiple CDV. I also know that he just got fired from his job, so he will not be able to pay the $1,022 fine. He was bonded out on a surety bond after spending one night in jail after his arrest.
Yes. Probation says "VIOLATE NO LAW" not just laws of state Xyz.... now will the state ever find out about it??? ---...
