First time getting a DUI/DWI Ticket . Paperwork Isn't filled out correctly by Officer.
I was pulled over for some unknown reason because I wasn't speeding or swerving. I say I wasn't speeding because the traffic ticket doesn't say how fast (or slow) I was at the posted limit. I was offered a breathalyzer and since I've never had one, I asked what it was exactly. The officer tried to explain it several times but kept saying I could refuse it. I refused it and was detained until I got several tickets. At the police station, I was never offered another chance for a breathalyzer. I didn't realize this until I got home and read the paperwork that said they were supposed to offer me one at the jail. They never did. Are these issues technicalities in my favor for a dismissal?
You should contact a local defense attorney to discuss your case with as soon as possible. Do NOT post any further...
