Did an officer violate my rights when he made do a field sobriety test even though I was injured
during a field sobriety test an officer made me stand on one foot and try to balance and according to him I failed this test leading to a breathalyzer test. However, before we started the test I showed the officer an injury on my foot (I had two toes amputated two months before and had just got out of the walking boot) and told him that I would do any of the other tests but I could not do the balancing tests due to the injury. he insisted I do the test any way and I tried but could not physically do what was asked of me so he said I failed and in the arrest report said that I could not follow his directions. That of course is not what happened but I don't know if I have any recourse in the matter
You should contact an experienced DWI/DUI attorney as there may be some issues here. They will have to go over more...
Got my first DUI today!
I was pulled over and arrested for a DUI because i was drinking the night before. They never read me my Miranda Rights, should i bring that up in court? Also the arresting officer took and threw my cigarette out of my mouth because he quit smoking 2 years ago, should i bring that up as well?
Forget Miranda and the cigarette incident for now. Call a local attorney immediately.
Have a SIS for a DWI. Got driving on suspended. Need to take 2nd part SATOP and pay reinstatement. Still a SIS charge or DWI
I got my DWI back in December of 2010. Took state months to file charges. Two weeks ago, finally had court and paid all of my fines. I need to take the second part of the OEP and pay my $45 reinstatement fee. My attorney, I thought, had said that I should be ok to drive. I got pulled over yesterday and I was still suspended, so I got a ticket for that and also a speeding violationWith the SIS and 2 years probabtion, am I still looking at being able to keep it as the SIS or will the DWI charge come back to me now? My court date is in over 2 months for the driving on suspended. Is it fixable if I get the SATOP done and the fee paid? Also, should I get an attorney for this, or just appear in court?
What was the effective date of your suspension? Did you have an administrative hearing and lose? If so, what was the...
DUI from other state never showed up on driving record
In August of 2002 I got a DUI in Illinois but had a Missouri license. My Illinois lawyer told me Illinois couldn't suspend my Missouri license but that they could suspend it when Illinois sent the information to Missouri. It was never suspended and it isn't on my driving record. I was just at the dmv to update my address and heard them asking people if their license has ever been suspended or revoked. This must be something new they are asking because I've never been asked this question. When I renew my license in 2019 I am not sure how to answer this question. My license hasn't ever been suspended but my driving privileges in Illinois were taken away for 3 months. I am very confused but also don't want to bring it up if I don't have to, as it's been 13 years.
This is probably better posed to a MO lawyer but my suspicion is that when you apply for renewal MO will run PDPS and "...
Can a drug admission at a hospital be strong enough to be used against you in court?
A good friend of mine recently got himself into trouble. He was operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated (not on alcohol), and when he crashed (not terribly bad accident just fender bender) he was taken out of the car, cuffed, sat on the sidewalk and talked to for a bit, and then taken to a hospital. Apparently he wasn't actually arrested since when he left the hospital there was no bail and he ended up going straight home (had to have a sober ride pick him up). While he was in the hospital however, apparently he admitted to taking a drug earlier that day before the accident and it states he admitted this in a hospital document. We are wondering if this could be used against him in court to turn his charge into a DWI?
Admissions can be used against him if the city subpoenas the medical person to testify at a trial. His blood work...
Will a motion to suppress work.
I was arrested for dui. The officers probable cause is that I ran a red light that doesn't exist(I have good photos and videos to prove it). The real reason the cop pulled me over is due to my avoidance to an upcoming sobriety checkpoint. I drove through a business parking lot and then turned onto another main road. All of my turns were legal.
I suspect the officer's story is different than yours. However, if your story is accurate, you have a good suppression...
Is a third DWI always a felony?
I just received my third DWI and just wanted to prepare myself for the outcome I also have a child that I have partial custody of and was wondering if his father could get full custody if I were to go to prison.
Please review Section 577.023, RSMo. It will always be a felony if the prosecutor decides to charge it as a felony and...
