DUI charge without implied consent, breathalyzer, or field sobriety tests
My husband was pulled over after an officer attempted to pass him. The officer stated my husband almost hit his patrol car as he passed him. My husband was asked to exit the vehicle. He was given only the eye test. The standing/walking test was not given. The officer arrested him stating he failed the eye test and had blood shot eyes. He never read the implied consent, Miranda, and was never offered any breathalyzer or chemical tests. Can we independently request a dismissal in his case based on these facts?

Can I fight this DUI charge or what can I do?
. I am 21, in GA. I was hanging with some new friends, because I had just moved to a different location, and didn't know my way around. I had about 2-3 sips or a beer, and maybe a few more sips of a mixed drink. I was driving my car. I had missed the turn, and needed to turn around. When I turned, a cop pulled me over and told me that it was an illegal U-turn. I was not aware since I was new to the area. The cop requested a field sobriety test. He then put me in hand cuffs, and said he was arresting me for DUI. There was no female present. I was taken to the police station, where he forced me to take breathalyzer, without my consent. It read- 0.051. Afterwards, the cop told me that I would receive a fee of $300. I was never "arrested" or charged. He told me I was getting a citation, and to appear for the court date. He stated that the court was for the illegal U-turn. He drove me to my friends house, and he let my friends drive my car to their house. I appeared for court and this is my first offense, other than a failure to yield in a car accident. I plead guilty, but I didn't know it was for the DUI. I have 280 days to pay $1200, 40 hrs CS, DUI school, and suspended license.
You need to hire a lawyer asap! It sounds like you entered a plea to DUI without benefit of counsel and and as such...

What can I do?? I recieved a DUI permit violation after my license was reinstated...can I fight this?
I was convicted of a DUI in August of last year. I applied for and was able to obtain a Limited Driving Permit for the duration of my license suspension. After the 120 day suspension was up, I completed all the necessary steps to reinstate my license. I submitted my certificate, paid my reinstatement fees online and everything. DDS online system told me I would receive my license in the mail and that my license was now valid. I genuinely though I had done everything I needed to do and had followed all the steps listed. However the other day I was pulled over going to the bank and the officer said it showed me driving on the permit and not my license, even though it was valid and had been valid since March. I contacted DDS and explained everything to them and they said I had done everything except physically surrender my permit so because of that I was driving on a permit and not my valid license..even though I told them what their Online system told me and that I didn't do that step because it isn't listed anywhere as step that needed to be taken. DDS is not helping and I am afraid that I will be convicted of a permit violation and loose my license even though it's been valid..
Will they allow you to surrender your permit now and obtain a valid driving license? If so, it may be wise to do that...
