In your experience, is 10 months+ between traffic stop (resulting in DUI) and filing of the charges; somewhat common?
Was pulled over 07/03/15 for speeding; I was taken for blood work & fingerprinted after admitting to drinking at a concert. The trooper said I'd receive my charges in about a month & that he saved me a step (live in different county) by already fingerprinting me. 10 months later, The charges have arrived. They were not filed until May 11, 2016 and include a fingerprint order. The probable cause affidavit does not mention when the blood lab request was submitted or received. Also, I mentioned to the trooper the possibility of THC in my system - to which I was told only my BAC was being tested (silly of me, I know. & I assumed he was BSing me). The affidavit does NOT mention anything other than my BAC (.098), however + the DUI charge is for BAC (.08-.10). I am wondering if the trooper cut me a break (thank goodness) and if it could be brought to the surface/recharged in creating a defense against the case.
No not unusual bac results from state police have been very slow. It hurts you in that a lawyer hasn't got your side of...
If I was stopped on suspicion of DUI, given field sobriety tests, not told the results, and then let go, will I still be charged
I was stopped and asked if I had been drinking. I truthfully answered yes and that it was one drink. I was given field sobriety tests including a breathalyzer. The officer did not show me my result from the breathalyzer and then told me I could go. Does that mean I passed the tests? Does it mean I will still be charged? Will I receive a summons in the mail?
If the officer allowed you to drive home after the tests, you must have passed them. I can't imagine a scenario where...
Will I be sent any kind of summons or citation after all this? Will it be on my record even though he let me go?
I was stopped for suspicion of driving under the influence. I was asked how much I had been drinking, to which I replied "one." My license was taken and the officer gave me all the sobriety tests. I had to follow the pen without moving my head and then stand on one leg and count until he said to stop. I counted to "one thousand thirty-one" before ha said to stop. I didn't fall over or stumble. Then he told me to blow into a breathalyzer and I did, but he didn't show me the number that came up. He asked where I was going more than once and I answered politely. He asked me again how much I had, and I told him one drink. He then gave me back my license and told me that if I was going somewhere to "get going" and I said "Yes, officer" and left. I was not given any ticket, citation, summons, or any written documentation and I was not arrested. I remained relatively calm (I'm not sure how) the entire time and in retrospect, I answered more questions than I should have, but being scared and wanting to comply, I answered every question. The cop basically told me to leave after giving me my license back, so that's what I did. I know what I did was wrong.
I really can't see you getting a summons for DUI. If there was probable cause to arrest you for a DUI there is no way...

What should I expect with non DUI ARD?
I am on ARD for a false id charge and underage drinking. I have a probation officer. My questions are 1) he said he would come search my apt. Are my roommates rooms going to be searched too? We all have locks on our doors and they don't want their rooms searched. 2) what if I'm not home when he arrives? 3) will I be notified at all that he is coming? Even just 5 min? 4) he told me if I leave for the night to stay somewhere else, just to leave a message on his phone-I don't need to ask for permission. If I tell him I left, will he come search my apt?
I've never heard of a probation officer wanting to searche the apartment of someone on ARD. Was that one of the...
