Can I have DUI conviction overturned or reversed?
In April 2015 I pled guilty to two DUI's in neighboring counties. Ive always questioned whether they even had good cases. Was it procedurally correct to not breathalyze me when they pulled me over? Not arrest or even ticket me but just send me on my way? In King county I mentioned having a couple of beers to the officers. I was actually referring to the previous day when I was pulled over in the other county. Regardless, I now have two DUI convictions in two counties. Also, these DUI's were within 72 hours of one another. I've heard they should have been run differently. Together somehow? But they were in separate counties and since I couldn't afford an attorney i felt stuck with very green public defenders. Plus, I had no money for bail. Consequently, I was unable to go out and seek a pro bono attorney or pursue a deferred sentence. Instead I sat 29 days in jail while my attorney did, I don't know. At 29 jail days it became too much. I said I'd plead guilty just to get out of jail. I did an Alfred plea but it did not help my situation. My plea mistake causes me great difficulty. I feel cheated by our guilty until proven innocent system.
I am sorry to say that this is nearly impossible to withdraw your guilty pleas even a day after you enter it let alone,...
Arrested for a DUI but received no ticket or documentation of the arrest. Am I being charged?
I got pulled over after swerving some - I had a few drinks but thought I was okay to drive. The state patrol officer said he was going to take me to jail but didn't. He instead released me in a shopping center parking lot and informed me to take a taxi home. I was given no ticket, no paperwork of court date. The only paperwork I have is my impound documentation and my breathalyzer receipt. I am unsure of if I am being charged as I was given no ticket.
The officer should also have given you documents for requesting a hearing with the Department of licensing. You have 20...
