I plead guilty to DUI. I was never read the MVC Standard Statement in its entirety. I was in a panic and did not give breath samples.There was a camera in the room. My attorney tried to get the video but the police said the camera was off. My attorney advised me plead guilty to Refusal.because I had no proof of not being read the statement. I regret I plead guilty to this
First, you should be aware that it is very difficult to vacate a guilty plea, especially after the imposition of a...
DUI .20 On Breathalyzer and CDL
My good friend got pulled over for flashing his high beams at a police officer on a major highway. After they pulled him over he was found to be extremely drunk. He tested .20 on the breathalyzer, (like 10 drinks for a 180 pound man), obviously failed the field test and was subsequently arrested. He is a CDL driver for a living. Also, this could possibly be his second offense in 10 years, he is not sure. What should he expect now? Will he lose his CDL permanently because the high BAC? Can he put off the suspension for a few months? Will the state inform his job about the DUI? Thanks..
If this is his second, it is almost certain that he will lose his CDL. The best shot he has is to hire an attorney to...
Which is worse a dui or letting someone with a suspended license drive my car?
Back in jan I let my friend drive my car. He has a suspended license because he already has two dui. I was not in the right state of mind and when he parked he told me to switch and being confused I did. I didn't not know what had happened and got like 8 tickets for reckless driving, hitting a car, leaving the scene, and driving under the influence. The cops were already behind us but did not see us switch. I knew he didn't have a license but I was not in the right state of mind and let him drive anyway. So which is worse? I have court in April and I don't know whether to take the blame or not because I don't know which is worse. Also I would probably get a ticket for lying to the cops saying I was driving but I was really confused and I blacked out so I didn't know he hit a car and was only driving on three wheels etc.
Sounds like a bad situation you need to consult with an experienced dwi defense attorney. Each offense has penalties...
What happens if you are caught driving in NJ after a DUI drivers license suspension?
I was driving obeying all traffic laws and was pulled over for not having a front license plate on my car. Cop asked for all paperwork I gave it to him and he asked how's your license? Is it clean? no points? So before he went back to his car and ran my license I told him straight out that I was suspended for a DUI charge that happened 1year ago. He pulled me out of the car arrested me gave me 2tickets - one for the no front license plate and the other for driving while suspended. I was released within an hour. So I have court in a few days and just want to know what I'm up against! And if it's bad or something that can be worked out without having them extend my license suspension!

Is a DWI non alcoholic a felony in the state of NJ
Just finished a long legal ordeal and I plead to a DWI. I got 7 months suspension finished my idrc but on the last day of idrc one of the older ladies lecturing said a marijuana DUI is a felony unlike an alcoholic related one here. My lawyer said the opposite back when we were working on my case. I'm worried. Situation related was my case which is why I'm serving 7 months.
DWI is a traffic offense under title 39 (Moving Violations). New Jersey does not even use the term felony.
Will my license be suspended with a DUI?
I had gotten pulled over while coming home after drinking wine at a friends house for following too close to another vehicle. I felt ok however, I failed the sobriety test. Agreed to the breathalyzer test and blew at .14. I was also pelted with 3 other tickets. Reckless driving, (even though I am positive I was not) operating under the influence and traffic on marked lines. I have a job where I commute to 25 min a day. I also will most likely be starting a new job in the next few weeks. I'm aware that I will have many fines however, is there any way I will not have my license suspended?
If you are convicted of DUI, you must lose your license. The only way to avoid a license suspension is to meet with a...
I had an accident while I was asleep from taking Ambien (Zolpidem) when I woke up I looked at my car and found it damaged.
I am loosing my memory, I cooked under the influence of Ambien and didn't remember anything aside from finding my food cooked, while nobody else lives with me. I drove to a store and I damaged my car. I realized it when I've seen the damage. I remember like it was a dream. I was prescribed the Zolpidem (generic for Ambien) by a doctor for the past year. The sleep driving, the loss of memory and the sleep walking started about March of 2016. I am still being prescribed this drug which is very dangerous. I could have killed someone while driving under the influence of this drug. It has to be stopped from being prescribed. It's like giving someone a gun.
This isn't really a question. However, you should be aware that you can be charged with driving under the influence...
