I recently lost a judgment on a 2nd DUI bench trial, and want to file for an appeal or new trial. Please see below.
There was no breath test. My field sobriety tests were not perfect, but I performed fairly well. During the tests, my contact lenses fell out. I have -7.5+ vision. (Very poor). I was also suffering from a cold and watery eyes that contributed to the lenses falling out. (Have prescription records to prove that). I also stepped on a rock, and I brought that to the attention of cop. During the video portion of the stop, my driving is perfect. For some reason, the judge believed what happened before and after the video than what he saw on the video. During the final deliberation of judgment, the judge remarked if I can see a rock, then my vision was not an issue. He acted as a judge and medical expert. Medical records were not summoned. Do I have ground to ask for appeal / or new trial ?

I got arrested for a DUI & Following to closely. I was diving a motorcycle and following my acquaintances because I did not know my way around that city. The officer went on to administer FST's which he stated that I failed. When he gave me the PBT it made me cough because I vomited not 15 minutes before they arrested me. (I did not mention I vomited but I have witness that can attest to this) On the sword statement, he said I refused to provide sample; however, on the sworn statement he put that my PBT read 0.163. Whilst in jail, I vomited again so they did not give me breathalyzer. And had to pee really bad so the officer ended up not taking a urine sample. (He said wait till you provide sample to pee.) While I was in my holding cell - I asked for a blood test. Which they didnottake

If arrested on a DUI charge, then being released to no one? I walked to closest relative 3-5miles away @ 3am? is that right?
I had no shows, coat, phone , identification, nothing besides my romper. Officer told me my sister was waiting outside, told me to go out through same way we entered(being police garage). I shook hands with the two and only two officers, to uphold my respect for authority even though they had abused the badge and what it stands for. Back to my point i was pulled over cabout 2am, for speeding and then hr or so later taken in on a DUI charge as well, When I was told my ride was outside I walked out to pitch black with one street lamp for police station lot. No one was there for me so i started walking.. my sister is only one who lived close by. mind you i do not live in this area or ever walked in foreign territory.

After a second DUI, what is the difference in terms of getting my license reinstated vs. a restricted driving permit?
My formal hearing is upcoming to try to get my license back. I'm wondering how hard it is to get my license reinstated vs. just receiving a restricted driving permit. If I receive a restricted driving permit, how long does it take to get my license fully reinstated? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Most likely your best outcome is a restricted permit. Permit will be granted for one year. You can request...
