How to get help with dui from ruining my life?
DUI 1st off. I was stopped at red light. foot slid off brake, bumped truck hitch car in front, no damages or injuries to truck. officer was overly aggressive and badgered me with questions and laws. I'm prescribed klonopin. he said it was illegal to drive on this medication. I've been on benzo's for 20 years. I am certain incident was not caused by medication, but me reaching for something in passenger seat.
If medication affects your ability to drive then you can be convicted of a DWI, regardless of how long you've been...
My blood test came back only had less than 30 nanograms and the normal is 200 so how can they still convict me for dui
The police officer was so eager to get me he made mistakes and conducted a flawed examination for dui. He said my speech was slurred and my eyes constricted. I was not under the influence of anything but my blood test came back with less than 30 nanograms of nordaizepam and normal being 200 so anyone can see things don't add up.
While it sounds like you have a decent defense, you will still likely need a criminal defense/DUI attorney to present...
My blood test came back less than 30 nanagrams of nordiazepam and the normal os 200 heard the DA mention per se law?

I've been given a citation for a DUI. I ran off the road and attempted to walk back to a friends house but slipped and fell
Busted my head on a rock and suffered a nasty head injury, the police were called by a friend when no one could find me, the police found me and took me to the hospital and had my head treated, I signed the BAC consent form while there but honestly had no idea what I was even signing. I had drank directly after the accident and know my BAC is slightly higher. While questioning my family that were I'm the room I learned the lab tech had cleaned my withdraw site with an alcohol swab instead of iodine, I've heard this can greatly change test results. My main question is, can I be held responsible for signing that consent with my head injury?
It sounds as if you have some valid defenses to the DUI charge. A DUI charge has to be based on alcohol you consume...
How do they determine dui by marijuana?
I was recently charged with dui/ poss of marijuana and not using a turn signal. I was parked when the cops arrived. So don't know how they got me for dui, plus i was not high, I occasionally smoke pot so it is going to be in my system anyway, took a blood test and im just wondering if i should plea not guilty, simple poss. is all that i should have been charged with one rolled up joint......... not dui i don't understand how they could do that.
You need to find out if there were active metabolites in your blood. See: http://www.colorado-dui.com/states/KY.html
I live in ky and recieved a dui here and now florida is holding it against me suspended me for life how is this legal?

After getting a DUI in CA and now living out of state, how can I get my BAC lowered for a 1650 waiver?
I received a DUI in 2013, started my program in Mar, 2014 but was dropped (8/4/14) for missing too many classes and failure to pay. I have been working on this from KY all year with no success. I had a warrant, got it recalled, have had my SR22 for 7 months, applied for a 1650 waiver but was denied because my BAC was a .22 and the MAU says this prohibits me from being eligible without an amended abstract lowering it below a .20. DMV gave me 3 options, to get it lowered, to re-enroll/drop and pay some fines, and to return to CA to finish it entirely. I have a life and a job in KY I can't leave for the amount of time it would require to settle options 2 and 3. I've been without a license for some time and need it back ASAP.
The amended abstract of judgment seems like the best option, but it would be very difficult to get, I think. Imagine...
