That sucks, don't expect the police to help. You need a lawyer. The cops couldn't care less.
I was charged for felony DUI & Test refusal and was not the inital driver of my vehicle. The police reports are also conflicting
I was a passenger in my own vehicle when a citizen reported my car swaying in the lane. The driver turned into a McDonald's restaraunt and I took over the driver side to see the menu and order. Just then I looked in the rear view mirror and the red lights were on us. I was told to pull over to the side and me and the driver switched seats again. I was charged as the driver going all over the road and failed my field sobriety test. After reading the police reports from three separate officers, the reports have conflicting information about who was actually behind the wheel at the time of the stop. Also I was on seroquel which is a strong anti-pychotic medication. I did not do the intoxilizer. Does it sound like I may have a chance to fight this?

How likely will I get 1 year restriction no alcohol at all for first time DWI.
Got a first time DWI, blew .14. No one was hurt and nothing was damaged. No prior offenses. Did get a speeding ticket with it. Prosecuting attorney offered me a deal of a fine, one year probation, and no alcohol for a year. I am fine with everything but wondering why I would be charged with no alcohol and not just no other driving related incidents. How likely is it the judge will throw that out or if I agree he does not have an option.
If you accept the plea agreement then the judge will impose all aspects of it, including the alcohol restriction. If...
What constitutes coercion in mn dui breath test?
A high blood sugar diabetic and tested.13 after one drink almost 4 hours later on breath test.I asked for blood test but was denied. Cop knew of my prior felony dui. But said if I took and failed breath test I would only be held 12 hours not seven years, could get my truck back after 12 hours not forfeited, and license back in 30 days not six years. Isn't that coercion? Also told me to pee my pants instead of letting me use bathroom, if I chose to contact an attorney.
