Dismissed Dui, will they refile?
I was arrested for refusing a field sobriety test on a probable cause dui. I submitted to the station breathalyzer and blew a 0.03, however was imprisoned for the night and went before a judge. The state prosecutor laughed and said "your honor we are dismissing this case, I haven't had time to file it". The judge released me and I paid no penalties. The paperwork says all future court dates and issues are removed, but to be aware the prosecutor may be able to refile. So what can I expect now, being that my BAC was .03 and it was dismissed, I do have a prior dui reduced to negligent 1.
The judge stated that the State can refile. You need to keep an eye on this to see if they refile.
How will my court hearing go if I was not booked for DUI?
I got pulled over for going 47 in a 35 going through airway heights. The officer did the basic procedures then asked me to step out of the vehicle and we began FSTs. When finished I took a breathalyzer test and blew a 1.05 to which I was apprehended and placed in the vehicle. Went back to the station where he asked me some more questions and also administered 2 more breath samples with the Alcotest 9510 which I blew .079 and .077. At the end of it all all he said was he was going to give me a speeding ticket and a court hearing for my DUI. I was not booked, no finger prints, no picture.
Most defendants are charged, tried, and perhaps convicted without having been previously booked. You should be...
If my husband is on probation for dv and he is smoking weed all day every day, can he go back to jail?
My husband does not know if he can or can't smoke weed while he is on probation. He is smoking weed every day all day. He says they won't drug test him because it wasn't a drug charge but a DV charge.
That depends on the restrictions put on him after sentencing or through his treatment program for his DUI. Is he on a...
How long does alcohol stay in your system? I drank a third of a palm breeze and I have a dry test tomorrow.

That would depend on your metabolism. It is too late to do anything about it now. If you cancel your test it is...
Will WA extradite me if I live in another state for a misdemeanor dui?
I can't make the court date since i'm unemployed.
Washington State has adopted the Uniform Criminal Extradition Act. http://app.leg.wa.gov/RCW/default.aspx?cite=10.88....
I received a dui in WA. On the police paperwork they listed me as white. I'm not white.
Can a dui be dropped due to having the wrong race on the paperwork?
Unless identity is an issue in your case it is unlikely it would be dismissed.
I received a dui in WA but I live in another state and will be moving out of the country for work before my next court date.
What are my options for dealing with this? Is there a way to resolve it before I leave? I took a blood test and was told by public defender that it would be weeks before they would have results.
All court dates are mandatory unless you are excused in advance. It is unlikely that this case will resolve without you...
