    Friday May 13 | via The News-Gazette 

    A man who pleaded guilty to hitting a clerk in the head with a hammer in a March 2013 armed robbery of a Champaign gas station was sentenced to 18 years in prison on Friday. The DNA of Nolan Bolden, 26, of Marion, Ark., was initially charged in the fall of 2013 without an identification after it was found underneath of the fingernails of the gas station clerk who fought back against Bolden with a baseball bat, before he escaped with hundreds of dollars.

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.
You waiver to counsel was knowing and done under oath. So, now after court you want to appeal, but to do so you need...

What am I likely to be sentenced on the pending charges?
I am being charged with DWI - drugs ( first offence), careless and prohibited driving, and possession of a non narcotic prescription medication without a prescription. I fell sleep behind the wheel of my vehicle and hit a culvert flipping my truck 7 times. I was not asked if I needed medical attention and I asked for it several times. I was taken to jail and spent 3 days until i was able to make bail. There were not drugs found at the scene and I was not under the influences at that current time. Yes there were things in my system but it was from 2 days prior. There were no other vehicles involved in the accident. Since the accident I have found out that I have seizures. I have had 3 since the accident and I believe that they could have been the cause of the wreck. I cannot afford legal counsel and I am being forces to represent myself. All charges are misdemeanors.

What is DWI with Drugs and refusal to blood test ?what are the odds of beating it.
My son is charged with DWI Drugs and refusal to take a blood test. He wrecked his car and I was there. He was not under the influence of alcohol, he blew 0 and they searched his car and found nothing. He had gotten stitches that day in his knee. they came out in the wreck. He could not walk the line and he has a condition in which his pupils stay large and he was taken to jail. I want to know if this is proper and what his chances are of being found not guilty or lesser charge. He said he was bright lighted and something hit his windshield. His windshield was shattered at the rearview mirror. The state trooper said he grabbed it when he wrecked.
Your son is going to need to hire a DUI lawyer to fight this case. These are all questions he can ask that lawyer...
