Can you appeal a dui ruling by a judge if you waived your right to counsel at the first court date after arrest?
I was pulled over for speeding. (80 in a 40). Refused breathalyzer test. Was not made to blow at the jail. I have had a lot of foot injuries in the past and told the officer this before a balance field test was given on ground that wasn't level. I had to hold one foot in the air for a 15 count. I was mad to follow his his finger above my head with my eyes and did that easily. I only waived my right to counsel because I thought I wouldn't have money for a lawyer. So I signed the waiver and plead no contest. Court was on the 8th and I have 30 days to appeal.

Can an adult get charged with a DUI in Arkansas?
I was pulled over and arrested for possession of marijuana. The officers informed me that I had swerved and thats why they stopped me. After issuing a drug screen which I failed only for marijuana and failing a field sobriety test that I cant even pass sober, they issued me a DWI with drugs. When I asked why I didnt get a DUI, I was informed it was because I'm not a minor? I don't understand. Neither is good but isn't a DWI worse?

I have a DUI coming up on September 15 2015. I was arrested because of my friends.Do I have a foot to stand on? Is my name clear
Hi there. I was arrested for a DUI in September last year. The police told me after throwing me in the van that I was arrested because My friends verbally assaulted them and they got angry. They did not find me behind the wheel, but my car was damaged as I had to swerve out to avoid colliding with a taxi that skipped a red robot at a junction. They drew blood and the case is pending for September 2015 the 15th. There was also a tow in service that aggravated the arrest on me. Would I be fine. What must I do? I got a job offer in England to start in June. Will this count against me? How can I clear my name Permanently?
