How was I charged with an OWI if I was unresponsive how could they have taken a test to prove I was drinking without my consent
I was found unresponsive in my car with two flat tires to my knowledge ambulance took me to the hospital when I awoke it was the next morning I was in the waiting room with the hospital band around my arm the security guard asked me if I had anyone to pick me up I told him no then he told me I had to leave I had no tickets I wasn't arrested but a week later I get to the mail that I was charged with an OWI.
They could have done a blood draw to establish a blood alcohol content. If so, the question is whether it was done...
I passed a field sobriety test but a subsequent breathalyzer did not register a proper reading and I was called uncooperative.
I was stopped after being accused of backing up into a car at a stop sign. Police administered a field sobriety test which I passed. They arrested me anyway, took me to the station, where a Breathalyzer test was unsuccessful after many attempts. I was doing exactly what they asked and yet they determined that I was being "Uncooperative". I had valid license, insurance and absolutely no priors. Yet, my license was subsequently suspended for one year without even having a court date yet. This has got to be a violation of my rights. They have no proof and it is their word against mine. Who wins in a situation like that? Me, the little guy? What can I do to get my license back since I cannot work without a car and my wife cannot drive me without missing her work and she is the main income earner.

How long do I have to wait to try and get my Felony DUI reduced to a misdemeanor?
I was sentenced to 3 years probation and 3 years license suspension for DUI with OWI prior. I have successfully been on probation for 1 year and have completed all class requirements. My lawyer previously told me I could eventually get my Felony reduced to a misdemeanor but how long before this can happen? I need to renew a professional license soon and I know this will be a problem with my felony.
Consult the lawyer you spoke with previously, they will know how long it takes the local jurisdiction to process your...
Is it possible to get another judge if I were to move to a different county?
I have been sentenced to 3 years of probation and a 3 year license suspension due to a DUI with an OWI prior. My judge is a stickler and Im trying to at least get unsupervised probation so I dont have to make trips in to the PO office. I cannot afford to get a hardship license and have no need for one since I live right by my work and he only allows you to use it for that purpose. Ive been on probation for 1 year now with no issues. So, my question here is, if I successfully get my case transferred to another state/county would I also be assigned a new judge if I ever wanted to go back in to get my license back early? If not how will I ever get my license back sooner than 2 more years? Any advice would be appreciated Thank you
