Can my brother be charged with DUI if no tests or blood work was performed?
My brother just finished a trial and no evidence was provided. The state didn't have no blood work and the officer didn't perform any field tests on my brother on the night he wrecked his car. He received 5 years of probation and 30 days in jail for this. Is this fair? Can they convict him even though they didn't have any evidence? Also, for the first offense, isn't the punishment to steep? Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Also, he wasn't arrested at all but was sent to the hospital; they didn't draw any blood from him.
If the trial has ended, it is obvious he can be charged with the offense. If he received 5 years of probation, then he...
If you have a "wet reckless" conviction and catch another DUI charge -- still a 2nd degree misdemeanor? Also question about plea
. I've not yet retained an attorney but this isn't my first rodeo. I know you can probably count actual DUI trials on one hand, but if you have seen someone go to trial and lose -- what sentences are typically imposed? I guess the meat of this post is "My plea seems bad enough, is it that much worse to be found guilty of DUI at trial?" Do guilty DUI defendants typically receive just jail time if they endure a trial, or do they get jail time + all the conditions of a plea bargain (probation, car impound, dui school, etc). Or is the Plea Bargain really a great deal considering the slim-to-nill chance at beating the charge in a trial, and the loss of freedom that would lead to job loss. Admin suspension sustained, so DUI School II, anyway--finally"not guilty" trial = reverse DMV ruling?
The severity of your sentence after trial will depend on the judge and any aggravating facts associated with your case....
VOP from a DUI/refusal to blow
9.5 hrs b4 trial 4 VOP (failed ETOH test or didn't take DUI class due to finances, which his PO was aware & ok)it occurred to me that my fiance is just going to take jail time if offered to avoid probation as the arrest caused him to lose his job, car, apt & belongings. We haven't spoke because we have no money. I recently moved to GA. Will he be able to change his mind after the trial if I can talk to him? Are there any programs for indigent couples to talk to each other or get canteen???? Is there away to see him via computer? He's in Lee Cnty, FL, I'm in Bartow Cnty, GA. I don't even get to say goodbye to him. Can he make money in there? Can he get out early??? Is there any way I can get a message to him by 1045am?? I'm sorry so lengthy, I'm distraught. Thank u 4 ANY help u can offer.

After 20 months of a car accident under the alcohol influence, I got a citation to court, Can I still be charged with a DUI?

What happens when you blow a violation on your interlock device?
First DUI. Interlock on my car for a year. This morning it said I blew a violation and had a bac. I called immediately (I was on my way to work) and the young lady told me to wash my mouth out and change the mouth piece. I did this, it said "warning", but I was allowed to drive. Five minutes into driving I blew a pass. I was told I need to bring my car in to get it serviced in four days to avoid a lockout. I’m outraged. If there was alcohol in my system, then how was I able to drive (and pass) so soon? I tried speaking with a supervisor, but no one will call me back. What can I expect in terms of probation, court, possible revocation of license, etc?
Don't bury yourself so quickly. That and KEEP YOUR COOL. These machines are finicky and they screw-up on...
