Can a judge up your charges from a zero tolerance to a dui?
I got charged with a zero tolerance from the police officer saying he was cutting me a break. Im scared the judge might up it to a dui because i blew a 0.14 and im 19
Only the prosecutor can charge you. The judge does not have that authority,
Is it possible to plead for a wreckless driving charge rather than a dui? Is jury trial required to do so?
I am facing a 3rd dui charge-I was arrested way back on July 9th of 2010-I completed the dui risk education classes on Dec.20th-2010 - and drove-successfully w/ an intoxilock device in my vehicle for a full year. I have not gone to court yet -is there ANY WAY I can try to get out of the 3rd dui charge? I know I could be facing jail time-and would gladly submit to that-if I could get a lesser charge. Would that help my case? And....if I get sentenced w/ the dui-and it goes to the state-and my license is revoked-is there a period of time-required by the state-that I HAVE to go w/out driving at all? I plan on paying an attorney to go to springfield to make an attempt to get my driving privledges restored or at least a driving permit of sorts.

Wasnt i under arrest when they took ne to the station?should he have read me my rights before he asked questions at the station?
I was in an accident. It was 6 below zero outside and had no cell battery. I talked to the other driver a bit ways down the road. Told him I would go to the gas station and call the police. I got lost and the police found me 2 hours later walking in a sub division. they took my phone patted me down and they put me in a squad and transfered me at the station to state police who drove me into the station. My dad showed up at the trooper told him to leave and he could get me later. He promised him I would go home and not to jail. once we got inside the station, trooper asked if I had been drinking and a few other questions. I said hours earlier in the day. He had me preform sobriety tests and pbt. he then had me blow in the station machine. I blow .11. He read me my rights and placed me under arrest for dui.
