If video contradicts the police report, is it means for dismissal in a DUI case?
the officer states text book procedures in his report. he did not ask for drivers license, registration, insurance. he says he stopped me for speeding but later in video he said he stopped me for driving all over the place. he also states that he signaled me to stop and i didnt. then he said he placed me under arrest then proceeded to ask me if i wanted to do breath test or blood test. none of this happened, and video shows the contradictions. the report has made up quotes i said as well that i never happened. is probable cause the only thing i can challenge? my blood was taken, and you can see that im intoxicated on video. my BAC was definitely high.
You really need to talk to your lawyer about this. Cases don't just get dismissed. It might provide good raw material...

I don't see a question here. What do you want to know?
What can I do if a lawyer charged me twice his normal fee?
I got a DUI the officer said I blew .11. Yes I drank but my last drink was 1-2 hours before and I drank a bottle of water within that time. The cop refused to show me the breathalyzer after he messed with it and couldn't get the reading he was searching for. I believe he erased previous readings. They claimed I swerved and I stopped in a cross walk. I sought out a lawyer that friends have used around the same time but they paid $1,500 while I paid $3,000. He tried to make me pay another $500 for forensic analysis in court all that guy did was repeat what everyone else said about the situation. I spoke with the lawyer about that fee so I told him that if that guy did his job he would of found out that I didn't blow a .11 like I said I drank but there's no way I was that drunk.
What can you do? Request a face-to-face meeting with your attorney to discuss. We don't know anything about the fee...
