Can someone who is under 21 and arrested for 1st offense DUI participate in the Defferal Program?
A young man was arrested for DUI 1st offense. He is under 21 and having this on his record could jeopardize his career. He has been going to school for a few years and this could prevent him from being able to use his training.
Yes, the young man can request entry into the 17C-5-2b deferral program if his alleged BAC is between .08 and .149,...
Can I fight a DUI Suspension that was not turned in as a DUI. The charge was Driving on a suspended 1st offense.
I was stopped and charged with Driving on a Suspended 2nd offences in April of 2015. In August I had a hearing and the charges were dropped to Driving on a Suspended 1st offense. Now three months later, I get a notice from the West Virginia DMV stating that my license will be suspended for 1 year for DUI. While my BAC was .05 which is under the legal BAC of .08 in West Virginia there was not charge for DUI even discussed. I have talked with the arresting officer who also agreed that there was no DUI charge and that it was only driving on a suspended 1st offense that was turned in to the DMV. I attempted to explain to her that the charge was not DUI but she would not listen. I moved to Orlando Florida just after the hearing. I am just at a loss as to what I can do.
Generally speaking, DMV and court aren't the same, that's why you can be charged in one and not the other, for most...
Arrested for a DUI with a negative breathalyzer
I was driving for work (class A truck) and went through a yellow light that turned red. When the officer pulled me over he immediately asked if I had been drinking. Which I denied and explained that I was returning from Michigan. He did a field sobriety test and said I was "wobbly" on one leg which I explained I had been driving 10 hrs. I had a negative breathalyzer and he arrested me anyways, impounded the truck and was held without bond 17 hours. I demanded a blood test. I am now out on PR awaiting trial for a DUI. How is this legal and how do I proceed? What's the likelyhood of this being thrown out and can I counter sue? Since I cannot work until this is cleared up.
When you say the breathalyzer test was negative, what do you mean? Was it 0.0%? Did you give a urine sample for drugs?...
Can a officer refile a charge as a new one or does it has to be the prosecution. The charge appears with 2 different case #.
I had a DUI charge (the whole case was sketchy). .05 BAC, I was parked. I filed a complaint against the officer and he was exonerated. After almost 9 months the case got demised by the prosecution. Two weeks after, the officer, not the prosecution refiled the charges(no new evidence, he said that I violated a plea deal even though they admint that there was no plea deal). His boss sent me an email with the summons(not served since i live in another state). After i refused to go until i was served, the issued an arrest warrant.
If the case was dismissed then jeopardy had not attached (Double jeopardy means you cant be twice charged with the same...
