Arrested for DUI but not given citation.
Yesterday I got pulled over for speeding, after speaking with the officer I was given a field sobriety test which I failed. I then blew in the breathalyzer and failed that test. I was taken down to the jail, finger printed, and blood was drawn. The jail refused to accept me because of a large laceration over my eye, my arresting officer then took me to the hospital for stitches. She randomly left during the procedure, and didn't give me any citation, court date information, or promise to appear. Are the cops going to serve me through the mail?
Since you went through booking already, hopefully, that is what will happen. You should receive a summons in the mail...
DUI question
Can a 3rd offense DUI be reduced to a second misdemeanor DUI with requirements? Just wondering if during the plea bargain if attorneys can fight for this. Thank you :) if so how often does this happen?
That is certainly a possibility. Depending on many factors with that 3rd offense an experienced DUI attorney can obtain...
Can a DUI be fought on the basis of duress, necessity, or extenuating circumstances?
On Sunday night, while intoxicated, I was involved in a violent altercation. I believe this was a robbery attempt. Several men attacked me and at one point I was being pistol whipped. After a few minutes of being assaulted, I managed to make my way to my car and drive off. I was pulled over a few minutes later, and arrested for a DUI. After my blood was drawn and my fingers prints taken, I was taken to the hospital for my injuries. I was left there without signing any paperwork related to a court date. So question 1: Do I have any chance of fighting this DUI based on the circumstances that lead to me driving? (I sincerely feared for my life at the time) Question 2: I was released without signing a promise to appear, release on OR, or other paperwork, will this affect my case?
There is no accepted justification for DUI. If you had time to get to your car, did you call 911? If you were attacked...

Would I be able to get my record sealed for a DUI charge that happened in 2012?

Why do I go to court if I paid my warrent?
My lawyer helped me reduced my dui to reckless driving, I got my other charges dismissed. I was required to take dui, impact, and traffic school classes. The judge said I had no limit on the first but 30 days on traffic school. I finish TS, I called to pay my fine which was reduced cuz of my bail. & they say I have a warrent for not sighning up for the classes after court. Which the judge never told me to do. So I paid the warrent & I have to go back to court? Why? Do I need a lawyer again? If so why?
