Can I get DUI or summons to court after Cop let me go & did not do sobriety test or Breath test? or written citation
I was sitting in car after bar closed with a friend listening to music very loud- I was tipsy. The car was in parked position. my friend was in passenger seat- Cop pulled behind car and question me drinking - I admitted to drinking as I didn't want to lie he took both of our drivers liscenced back to car- had me get out of car talked to me told me it was wrong to be sitting in car even if im not driving. He did not do breath test OR any sobriety testing. I did NOT refuse tests- the cop simply did not do them. He did not give me a written warning but told me to find a ride to take me home. he gave our liscence back . Can I still get summoned to court I am SO scared.

I was sitting in my car after the bar closed with a friend I was definitely tipsy ; listening to music. with the car on . but not moving. cops pulled behind looked at our liscence in his car but gave them back. Had me step out of the car - sternly talked to me about my drinking and if I should be driving home I said I probably shouldn be . he never did breath test, sobriety testing or ANYTHING and didn't give me a citation or any paperwork at all. I am still worried I could get charged. I call the police office told her I got pulled over by a bar to look me up she told me if I didn't get ticketed there I wasn't going to get anything mailed to me either this was in Brunswick ohio . she didn't look my name up though ; should I stop worrying? im afraid to be summons to court
It sounds like you're in the clear. Be more careful next time and get a cab!
Can a person with a CDL convicted of a DUI still get some sort of ID without it affecting the satus of the CDL?
His liscence through the court was suspended for 6mo and his CDL was suspended for a yr. He was told if he got an ID it would void the CDL and he would have to take the test again
Yes, you can obtain a "temporary ID" through the Ohio BMV. If you ask for a "State" ID it will cancel your license and...
Double Jeopardy?? My reasoning is based on single criminal episode. "The order of dismissal concludes that in pleading to the civil traffic infraction, Knowles admitted an essential fact necessary for proof of the DUI charge: that Knowles was in control of the vehicle for both offenses. Thus, Grady v. Corbin, 495 U.S. 508, 110 S.Ct. 2084, 109 L.Ed.2d 548 (1990) bars the subsequent criminal prosecution. The order notes that characterization of the two proceedings as civil or criminal is not a determinative factor for purposes of double jeopardy analysis. See United States v. Halper, 490 U.S. 435, 109 S.Ct. 1892, 104 L.Ed.2d 487 (1989)."
No, pleading to a seat belt violation does not in any possible way bar a subsequent prosecution for OVI.
