Can I get my charges thrown out?
I was arrested for a dui and I also didn’t submit to a blood test that the officer had a warrant for so I was charged with obstructing justice. I was parked in a private parking lot with my truck running one officer pulled in front of me and two officers pulled behind me. They had a call in the area that someone was vandalizing cars and thought I was possibly involved. Obviously they knew it wasn’t me doing that and were going to have my wife come and get me due to the smell of alcohol they wouldn’t let me drive home. So they ran my name and found I had a warrant for FTA in a different county so they “had to take me in for a dui”. The warrant I had it dropped the following day because I completed the court ordered class that was in question I had completed it nearly 4 years ago. I was hoping to get the dui down to reckless driving and obstruction down to disorderly conduct and pay maximum fines. Was hoping for some feedback on my situation I have hired a attorney he is really good but also super busy.
It sounds like you are doing all the right things with regard to defending this current DUI case. You have hired a good...
How can police seize my vehicle for driving on suspended?
I received a DUI in 2005. Then on September 15 2017 I was arrested for driving on suspended. The Police in Lincoln Illinois tell me I can not have my vehicle back. Can they legally seize my vehicle? How can I regain possession of my vehicle?
Why are you suspended (or are you really revoked.)?
What should I do next ?
Got " special probation" . Got arrested for probation violation re: positive drug screens. Requested further drug testing because I wasn't taking any drugs. I was denied further testing. Fined and ordered probation for 2 1/2 years. No drug tests done For almost one year and got dropped at probation. Never heard from them til a month later. Went to probation for the month and they dropped me again telling me that my urine was dirty. I didn't know what to do so I went to the hospital and had a 10 panel done. It was negative for all substances. I called probation next day and asked what my test results were from the day before. He told me my urine had not been tested yet. I asked where they get their lab supplies and he told me " I'm not going to explain anything to you". And then an argument ensued. I told him I had been to the hospital and had a test, one hour after probations test, and it was negative. I have denied drug use and no one will listen to me. I wouldn't have been on probation and fined and arrested if they would have gotten a better drug test the first time around. I have been denied due process and wrongfully judged. I'm thinking about getting a hair follicle test .
What you should do is keep handling this yourself and losing or retain a lawyer
Will this person still be prohibited to refrain from drinking/drugs as long as he is on probation? How will he be monitored?
A person that was wearing a scram ankle bracelet had the bracelet removed 6 mo early. On court notes there is an entry that says "order baid order". I can't find the definition of this term. I don't understand any judge removing a scram bracelet early for a person w/2 DUI in 14 months time. I spoke w/states attorney office just days before & was told a judge would have to rule on early removal. There was nothing filed at time of my conversation w/ states attorney office. Very worrisome as there are children age 9 & 11 that have traditional visitation w/ their father. They are worried if he will be drinking "a lot of beer when he gets the ankle bracelet off because he has been drinking a lot of fake beer the last year." We worry for kids safety when with him- he is an alcoholic. Very frustrating... Thank you, Bonnie Frawley

Acceptable explaination for a violation on my baiid of .096
Have had my permits and baiid machine since 2/2012, had one violation of .064 in April. A friend blew in my machine, unknown to me. Just recently had my second violation of .096 and know that the state will not accept that previous explaination. I am a level 3 so admitting I was drinking may cause me to lose my permit. I was installing a new machine, not intending to drive when the violation occured. Violation occured at 3 AM. I had 5 beers between Midnight and 3 AM. I am elligable to apply for my permanent license in 11/2012. Is there any proven acceptable explanation that I could use to keep from losing my permits?
Level 3 cannot drink. Period. Even if you are not driving. You know that. Your permit will be cancelled. You cannot...
