What does the state attorney look at in a police report to charge you with DUI?
About a month ago I hit a tree on my way home with a friend in the car. We both went to the hospital for injuries. At the hospital the nurse made me give a urine sample. It came back positive for alcohol. The police on scene did not ask about drinking at all. They handed me a ticket for careless driving and went on their way. A week later when the crash report was made available I purchased a copy. In the report it specifically says no suspected alcohol use/no test given. In the narrative it says I fell asleep causing me to hit a tree. In my hospital records it gives my BAC level of .2 with a note under it stating for "medical evaluation purposes only." So basically I keep hearing I can be charged with a DUI by the state at a later time, but I keep reading everywhere online that the state looks at the police report to make a decision. Can anyone shine some light on what they can do to charge me with DUI if the police report mentions nothing about alcohol use, and my medical records should be private? Thank you in advance.
This is a complicated question, the State looks at all the factors. There is a strong likelihood with your case...

This is not a DUI question. It could be a child abuse question.

Is DUI Dismissal equivalent to non-guilt?
So I took a breath test and it was over the limit (allegedly). My DUI case was Dismissed because of expiration of speedy trial date (yes I filed the motion for discharge and won, state didn't appeal it). Question: 1. Is this considered a dismissal with prejudice and therefore it's equivalent to "Not Guilty"? 2. Can I now get my License suspension invalidated pursuant to f s. 322.2615(16)? 3. Judge did not write or send me anything. How do I get a written order from the judge so I can show it as proof? Thank you very much for any input
The good news is your case is gone forever. It is dismissed with prejudice. However, a dismissal is not a verdict of...
