I have no prior DUI and was pulled over for speeding and charged with DUI with a bac of 0.154. I am curious of what to expect at court. I am nervous and have no knowledge of duos and the process. I know I have my 30 day temporary license, and was wondering how I can get a permit to drive for work due to my job requiring driving. Also anybody know how strict Brantley county is or judge crews is? Thank you
First you should hire an experienced DUI attorney. Do not do this alone. If you fail to get any responses you can...
My Dad was charged with DUI. There were no witnesses, and not even the cop saw what happened. My Dad was off the road, his scooter fell into a ditch, and he was trying to lift it out . A cop pulled up and did not see anything that happened. My Dad told the cop he was riding the bike and crashed into the ditch, and had a little to drink. Then the cop gave him a breath test and he failed. Is there any way to get my Dad's testimony thrown out, since it may not have been credible due to diminished capacity from alcohol consumption? The cop did not even see him riding, there is no other evidence except for my Dad's drunken testimony.
Based on the facts you provided, i think there is circumstantial evidence that your dad was driving the scooter,...
A person leaving a bar was accosted by 2 men in the attempt to rob him. The intended victim fought with both and bar security intervened as the victim was getting the best of the 2 robbers and looked like the agressor. Bar security told the victim to leave the property and ordered the robbers to return inside the bar. The victim tried to communicate that this was a robbery attempt. Bar security refused to listen as intended victim was intoxicated, and poor English speaking. Victim called police and then used phone to videotape the faces of the robbers. Bar security identified himself as a police officer. When APD arrived, they consulted with bar security and arrested the intended victim for DWI. No one listened to the badly beaten victim regarding the attempted robbery. What recourse?
Your friend needs to hire an attorney right away. It sounds like he may have some good issues, but he will need an...
I had a bench warrant out 15 years ago for not going to court on a DUI charge and I skiped bail. The bail got handle but I haven took care of the DUI. I want to take care of it now but just wondering what I'm going to get in to.
It could very well be that your speedy trial rights were violated (depending on a number of factors). Get an attorney...
2nd offense within 5 years. Retaining an attorney. I was pulled over for excessive speeding and fined for that and DUI. I blew twice, did field sobriety then blew again. I refused implied consent. On the citation for the DUI it doesn't state anything about me blowing or the results. It's marked that the test administered was blood. Would this be good leverage to get it reduced to reckless driving?
Your question makes me nervous for you. It sounds like you might be getting some good advice from a lawyer, and trying...
Could this condition get your FST thrown out? The officer pulled me over for speeding claimed he smelled alcohol, and had me perform the FST after I was arrested he said it was something about my eyes...could this help them get thrown out?
Your question isn't clear. If he administered the test after you were already arrested, then the test could be...
Between the years 2006 and 2008, I received 3 misdemeanor possession of marijuana charges. Habitual offender. All 3 times my license was suspended. First time; 1 year probation, fines, 6 months license suspension, DUI class and reinstatement fee. Second time; 1 year probation, fines, 1 year suspension, DUI class and reinstatement fee; third time; jail time, 5 years license suspension, DUI class and a reinstatement fee. I have not yet taken the DUI class or paid the reinstatement fee for the second charge, so the 5 year suspension has not started yet. It has been 7 years since my 3rd charge. I am now a single mother working 2 jobs with no license. Is there any way to get my license reinstated sooner?
It is my understanding that you are eligible for a limited permit after two years after a third offense. Did you not...
