Previous DUI and convoluted circumstance...
(have a previous DUI from last year so it may/may not add to the circumstance) But got into an accident after going out with some friends back in June, I was supposed to be the DD so I'd stopped drinking 3-4 hours before the drive home and left early/alone because I was vomited on at the club we went to. Got into an accident, no breathalyzer, chem test, etc. But the cop and ems did comment on the smell of alcohol and my incoherence (also got knocked in the head a couple times during the accident). Fast forward, the police report is released stating the other guy was at fault, and he was cited with failure to yield, no signs of alcohol use reported on either side... with a witness stating we were both driving normally prior to the accident. Now the other guy is telling his/my insurance that I was "drunk" and "tried to start a physical altercation." I'll admit I'd drank some, but in no way was there any attempt at starting an argument. Should I be worried? again, no chem or breath tests.
You have a prior conviction for DUI and a new arrest (w/crash), so yeah, you should be worried. This forum isn't really...

DUI VOP question
My father had court today for VOP for a DUI. The state offered 20days in jail. My father cannot do 20 days in jail at this time, due to financial problems and needing to relocate out of state. He plead not guilty because the public defender said he had a good chance of beating it. (Violation was due to finances and illness) My question is, if he doesn't beat this charge, is he looking at 20 days or is he looking at the full time for a DUI charge? Aside for the last two months that he's been in and out of the hospital, he has been current with alcohol classes as well as paying his fines. I apologize if this is confusing for anyone to understand. Thank you in advance
If he did not intentionally fail to pay, although he had the money, he is not guilty of violating his probation. He...
Could an Orlando victim beat a Dui case?
If there was a shooting at a social club/bar and the victim drove a vehicle I fear of death. Gets into a car accident and later gets charged with Dui. Could this case get dismissed and what steps to make?
It's called defense of necessity As long as crime they were avoiding is greater than the crime committed, it is a...
Violation of probation from DUI
Hello all. My husband got his first DUI charge in 2012. He went to his classes, they put him on probation and put an interlock machine in his car for 6 months. One day - at almost the end of his 6 month period - he had a cocktail at lunch around 1pm with the company, his shift was over at midnight, but the machine still read it as a violation. I'm no even sure what ensued after that because he turned the interlock machine in, but since he blew dirty that one time, it was considered a violation of probation. He's had an open warrant out since march of 2013. He retained a lawyer and has a court date on Monday. Will he have to do time - a day, a week, a month - considering the original charge was DUI and he violated probation and this is a warrant that's been open for 3 years...??? I'm nervous about his court date...just wanting to get some advice on some of the possibilities to expect. He does have priors but that was over 20 years ago when he was in his late teens, early 20s. Thank you!
You have good reason to be nervous, but can't accurately predict any potential jail time at this point as it depends on...
