Can I be charged for DUI refusal if I was unconscious?
I was involved in a motorcycle accident and received a head injury (acute subdural hematoma) and a broken shoulder. When I awoke the next day in the ICU I had a ticket for a DUI/Refusal and also there is a 'Refusal' noted where I was to sign the ticket. I was not arrested. Also on the ticket it states ''satisfactorily completed as compared to a sober person - yes'. I was not drinking but I am very confused as to why there is a DUI charge, a refusal charge (especially since I was unconscious), and then a statement that I completed as a sober person. (Completed what - I do not know.) The hospital definitely has my blood so I can tell them to use that to prove my innocence but do I need a lawyer for this or is this just something that should be dismissed as it seems to be issued in error.
It appears, through no fault of your own, you've fallen into a serious situation. I wish I could tell you that you...

I was recently arrested for a DUI and submitted to a breath test on the Intoxilyzer 9000.
I failed the breath test and my license was revoked after my CO DMV hearing. The caveat is that my lawyer and I found out that the breathalzyer machine's certification was signed with a stamp from a guy who hadn't been with the company in years. The judge in the county is going to rule in several weeks regarding hundreds of DUI cases and whether the breathalyzer results should be thrown out. My question is...if the machine wasn't legally certified and the signature on the certification was fraudulent, is there any way to appeal the DMV hearing decision?
If you have an attorney already, you really need to ask him/her. There are several highly-skilled attorneys fighting...
