AT NO TIME DID THE JUDGE ORDER MY LICENSE SUSPENDED. ALSO SUSPENSION IS NOT ON MY MINUTE ORDER . CAN THE COURT DO THIS ANYWAY.
I RECEIVED A DWI IN JULY 2013. THE OFFICER TOOK MY LICENSE ON THE SPOT. ABOUT A WEEK LATER I GOT A LETTER OF SET ASIDE FROM CA.DMV TELLING ME THAT THE ARRESTING AGENCY DID NOT HAVE THE PROPER EVIDENCE TO TAKE MY LICENSE AND TO GO TO ANY FIELD OFFICE AND GET MY LICENSE BACK FREE OF CHARGE. SO I DID. AFTER GETTING MY LICENSE BACK I THOUGHT THE CASE IN COURT WOULD HAVE BEEN DISMISSED. IN MARCH OF 2015 WHILE TRYING TO GET FOOD STAMPS I WAS INFORMED I HAD A FELONY WARRANT FOR FTA . PUT MYSELF ON CALLENDER . WAS REMANDED INTO CUSTODY. CHARGED WITH A DUI WITH A PRIOR.

I'm charged with a DUI and the blood is no longer available for us to test, can I get it thrown out?
I was arrested for my 3rd DUI a felony. I was forced to take a blood test and the results came back .17. I have been trying to get the blood tested by an independent lab since the beginning but it is no longer available. I want to know if there is any case law that can help me suppress that evidence. I have been fighting this case for almost 3 years haven't been able to get the blood tested. First I had a public defender, then I hired an attorney but he was relieved due to medical reasons so I went back with a public defender, now I have an attorney again that's why it has taken so long to try and get the blood retested. Is there anything I can do?
You need to have this discussion with your attorney. You haven't given us enough information to give you a good answer.
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...
