DUI 2 years ago....trial date in 3 weeks, need help please
I obtained a lawyer a couple of days after I was suspected of DUI in June of '08. This was my 2nd, my 1st was 10 years ago. My Lawyer informed me through mail that I have a trial date set. I have called my lawyer 4 times in the last 2 weeks leaving messages to have her call me, and she hasn't responded. I would like to know what to expect, etc. My question is, one shouldnt my lawyer be calling me back with info on the case? What should I expect from a trial date for DUI, and will the judge throw the book at me? What are the chances of the ruling going in my favor 2 years after the incident? Any and all helpful information would be greatly appreciated.
This is pretty serious. I would suggest you hire a new attorney immedialtely.

DUI questions
I am being charged with DUI even though I wasn't seen driving. I lied for my boyfriend at the time who had an accident behind me. I claimed something like a cat or dog came across the road and caused him to swerve into a fixed object. By the time police and ambulance services came, my car was parked in a parking lot with the keys/FOB in the front flap of my purse. My car doesn't operate using a key-it uses a FOB, the hood was cold and no GPS was pulled out of it showing when it was last operated. There was mass confusion on the scene-my then boyfriend had a head injury and the cop who started in on me wasn't the original cop on the scene. We were told about the confusion from the tow truck people I called. I refused to do any field sobriety tests. I wasn't allowed to leave and was placed in handcuffs. It was a custody. I had a blood test done. I know for a fact they used an alcohol swab because I have a severe aversion to needles. It came out .08. At that point, they said I wasn't in custody and free to go-releasing me to drive. 7 mos. ltr., I get the citation in the mail. Is it normal to allow someone under the suspicion of DUI to just leave and get back in a car to drive home?
It is atypical, and probably good for your defense, especially during cross-examination. However, though atypical,...
Could my evidentiary breath test results be suppressed if the machine did not print the results at the time of the test?
Due to a printing error, no actual results were printed at the time of the test by the intoxilyzer 8000. The results of the test were later retrieved by KDH. I don't know if the unit was sent out for maintenance to retrieve my results. I'm very concerned of any further use of machine before my official results could be retrieved. My official result came back +0.20.
Your question is one that we have had to address several times in the past. First of all, "suppression" of test...
What can I do to get this DUI to go away?I don't think I would get a DUI because I was not drunk.I was scared and upset.
I left a hit and run accident and they want to give me a DUI because I didn't take the test for them. I went to jail but only stayed 2hours and was released have to go to court.
I'm sorry to hear about this, and a local DUI lawyer would be your best bet, as your chances for a successful...
Is it legal for me to be driving their vehicles as long as it is exclusively for normal job functions?
I was charged with DUI in Kansas, got a diversion and successfully completed that diversion. My license status is currently restricted to the use of a vehicle with an ignition interlock device. Unless it is an employers vehicle. I survey pipelines in different states all over America, and during work it is required that I drive other employees vehicles that they personally own, to complete job tasks. The company pays them a mileage rate.
That's different than an employer's vehicle. Speak to a local dui lawyer for specific law.
What sentence is there for an intoxicated accidental elderly abuse case that resulted in the death of an 87 year old woman.
It has been brought to my attention that there are descrepencies in the corners report for my mother-in-laws death, three months ago. The inspector seems to suggest that I killed my mother-in-law.. They're saying I must have blacked out, cause l was in total disbelief in the days and weeks that followed her death.. As the investigator, my wife, threropist, and others suggest possible answers, I hear some things that are unsettling. It all sounds like a nightmare that I can't wake up from. I have five children (3-24yrs) will I ever see them again? How many yrs sentence, in KS, for intoxicated elderly abuse resulting in death?
Hi, For the sake of your children, run not walk to retain the best attorney you can afford. You can use the 'Find a...
