I had gastric bypass & was pulled over for speeding but arrested for DUI when I was not drunk. Can I use this as a defense?
I was driving home from work from a night club crying after being harassed & threatened by a fellow employee. At work I had 1 miller lt. beer, a glass of water, then a glass of plain cranberry juice & an additional 1/4 glass of water before leaving to go home. I was not impaired and had no effects from the alcohol. I was upset & crying when I was pulled over for speeding. I admitted my guilt for speeding and told the deputy what had happened. Because my eyes were "red" he wanted to know if I was smoking anything. When I said no he asked if I had been drinking and I said, I had 1 beer.I did 2 field sobriety tests which I passed then a breath test which I was sure I would pass but came up .08 then .09 @ station. I had gastric bypass & I'm sure that's why my BAC came up so high w/just 1 beer.

Moving from NC to Texas on a limited driving privilege, due to a DUI. What's the way to go about getting my license in Texas?
I was convicted of my first DWI in North Carolina. I blew .10. I was given a suspended sentence. North Carolina law requires a one year suspension for first DWI and the judge gave me a limited driving privilege which is in effect until August 2016. I am moving to Texas in October. How can I drive legally in Texas? Alternatively, I may not completely move but will definitely spend some time in Texas, will my North Carolina limited driving privilege be valid?

My DUI was dismissed; can the DA re-file charges in the future?
In July of 2013 I rear-ended a car at a stoplight and was charged with failure to reduce speed and a DUI (this is in North Carolina.) After two years of this being continued by the state, due to cops not showing up and blood results not being back yet, the DA dismissed the DUI and I pled guilty to the accident. I started thinking though; when my blood results do finally come back from could the DA re-file the charge? Also, how would I go about getting the charge expunged from my record? Would I need to hire a lawyer again?
In NC, it's a DWI. Get a lawyer to check to see if your case was voluntarily dismissed "with leave" or not. If...
Do I need a criminal defense lawyer?
I got an underage drinking ticket at a traffic stop, blew a .03. I am 20 years old and I was wondering if I should get a lawyer to help with the process or if I should just go to court and plead guilty. Here are the numbers (G.S. 20-138.3) and (G.S. 18B-302(B)(3))
I would strongly recommend that you do speak to an attorney before just admitting to the crime by pleading guilty....
