Can a breathalyzer test results change for a DUI charge?
I got arrested for DUI. I have a lawyer and everything and we are trying to get it reduced to reckless driving. I was just emailed the police report. It states that my breathalyzer results changed from .084 to .10 on the way the police station. Should I tell my lawyer? Can that actually happen, can the results change? Did the cop lie? Is my chances of having my sentence reduced better or worse? This is my first offense and have no priors I just want this to go away.

Is my Department of Licensing hearing for a DUI or speeding?
I got pulled over in Washington for a DUI. I was arrested brung to the police station and then dropped off at home. The officer gave me three papers. The impound for my car. The ticket. And the Department of Licensing hearing request. I'm going to speak to a lawyer tomorrow. But my question is, why does the ticket only say I have to pay 310 for speeding? It says nothing about DUI.

I'm in the military and got arrested by civilian police off base. I don't want to tell them until after I speak to my lawyer. So do I have a DUI or speeding conviction?
If an officer pulls you over for speeding, you can be issued a speeding ticket. That is a different problem than your...
