What does it mean when the judge says $5000 full cash bond & gives the person another court date?
My boyfriend thought he had everything taken care of 2 years ago when we went to the prosecutor's office and took care of old charges and got his driver's license back. He was recently picked up on a DUI. Although he was actually asleep in his vehicle and not driving. He was released on his own recognizance but transferred to another county because of an old FTA from 2008. Same county we had to deal with to get his license back. The judge today gave him a $5000 cash only bond and he has to go to court again in 12 days. Does this mean we have to pay this on top of whatever the judge says in 12 days, or is it that to get him out of jail now we have to pay $5000? We cant afford to pay his bond, so he will have to stay in jail. I just want to know what to expect when we go back to court.
The $5,000 bond would secure his release only. It would not resolve the underlying issues. if you can't afford the...
Is an incomplete police report enough for a motion to suppress in a DUI case?
15 MINUTES had passed since my gf and I were parked at the local golf course maintenance area before authorities arrived on scene, due to an anonymous caller about a woman walking down the road, who was picked up, and then parked on golf course property. Authorities asked what we were doing, I told them just talking, they asked if we had permission to be parked there. I told them I knew the owner. Within minutes owner arrived, confirmed he was the owner and that I always have permission to be on site. He was told to step aside so they can finish questioning. He stayed to witness the entire scene. Police report does not mention ANYTHING about the owner of property. They went on to question us and eventually fished out enough probable cause to proceed with a DUI stop.
The report doesn't mean near as much (if anything) compared to whether or not they can testify to facts establishing...

First OWI with BAC of .12. Spotless driving record (no tickets, nothing). Could medical condition be to blame for BAC?
Pulled over for license plate expired. Had 2.5 beers 2-3 hours before driving. Female/5'8/125lbs. Passed all the field test. Still blew .12 at the station. I had a kidney stone and kidney infection that hit that very next morning . Is it possible that this could be the reason I still blew .12 after not having a drink for hours before driving and if so, should I even bother bringing it up? My friend who had not had anything to drink pulled over and was waiting for me, but the officer went up to him and told him that they would have allowed me to leave with him, but that I had requested him to leave. What should I expect the outcome to be with no previous record or tickets? Should I hire an attorney?
Yes, you absolutely need an attorney. DUI offenses are rarely deferred or changed by prosecutors due to the political...
DUI. Cops arrived. Wasn't in car. Passerby saw me exit but didn't say a thing about seeing me drive.
I wasn't in the vehicle upon arrival of police. Passerby saw me exit but not driving. I was blackout drunk and told the cop my buddy was driving.
