Can I beat this case? Is it worth fighting? Can I even be pulled over when im parked and getting out of my car?
I was pulled over for a dui, and I took a urine test, however the urine test was cracked so they switched my urine from one cup to another cup. I am a single mom working a minimum wage job so I cant afford to spend case amount of money. And also I was parked and getting out of my car when I was pulled over, the keys were not in the ignition. Someone called in and said I was swerving and the cop pulled up as I was stepping out of my car.
First, yes, you can be charged even if you weren't in the car at the time the officer arrived. Remember, they have to...
Is your 4th DUI in 7 years considered a felony? What is likely to happen?
In 2013 & 2014 my boyfriend has charged with his second and third dui, those were both within the 6 yrs and he was put in mental health court in our home town county, today September 7th he is being charged with technically his 4th dui but it's been over 6 years (so 3 in 6 yrs) in a county near by.. He did have a bond set at 4,000$ his arraignment is tomorrow morning.. Is he likely to get out if the po doesn't put a holder on him?
He MAY get his bond reduced, but that is entirely up to the judge. A third in 6 carries max of 12 mos in jail IF...
Do you think I should take the deal from DUI to physical control?
I am an international student in Cleveland I was convicted with DUI on January 1st in Columbus so after the 2nd court trail we have a deal of 'physical control' and three day class for non alcoholic related, we kept the deal on table and trying the jury trail on March 26th so do you think I need to take the deal or fight back till it goes off record. I want to know in a long run if I want to change my visa From F1 to H1 in future would affect it or in my employement.
I cannot speak to the immigration issues. It sounds like you may have an attorney for the DUI. That is the attorney...
How many vials of blood are required to be drawn in an OVI blood draw?
I was arrested for OVI on 9/4/15 and the officer offered me a blood, breath or urine sample, and I chose to provide a blood sample. The officer took me to the hospital where the nurse drew ONE vial of blood, the officer put it in an evidence bag and we left. He cited me for OVI and then released me. He received the results on 10/13/15 and he filed charges on 10/14/15. How can I possible obtain an untainted sample? There is only one vile of blood, and the crime lab had to use it to test it. Shouldn't the officer have directed the nurse to draw 2 vials of blood so that one vile was preserved for the defense? is there enough prejudice to have the results thrown out?
As long as the original vile has been preserved, you can still require independent testing. There are strict...
In OHIO when is a person considered under "arrest"?
I was pulled over for OVI and the officer made me do field sobriety tests, then put me in cuffs, took me back to the police station. He read the BMV 2255 form that stated I was under arrest, and made me submit to a breathalyzer. He released me to my family shortly after. Was I under arrest under Ohio law?
Whether you are under arrest depends on the circumstances. The actual question you should ask is "were you in custody?"...
Is it possible to file with the court to get my license back before the suspension is up? How do I start the process?
In 2012 I plead guilty to my 3rd DUI. Had a public defender at the time with no DUI experience. Although I was less then a mile from home, did not wreck, cause any harm to others and fully cooperated with the officers (same for the other cases). The judge gave a a 10 year suspension and I am not allowed to have a car titled in my name either. I went through all of the rehabilitation, completed probation without an incident and have continued to stay on the right path since. However, my job is starting to require mandatory overtime and it is causing an issue for me since the bus I ride doesn't allow a change in my hours.
The best move would be to hire an attorney to file a motion for occupational driving privileges. If granted, the judge...
Will they just see that my levels are decreasing from Test 1 to Test 2 or will a failure on the second test hurt my case?
I was arrested for DUI and ordered to take 2 pre trial drug tests. I know I will fail the first and possibly the second. The time in between the tests is 10 days and I fear my system will still not be cleared. This was not a drug related arrest.
If your levels decrease, you'll be fine. If they increase or stay the same, you'll have a problem. I hope you have an...
