Can they send him to jail? Can they get in trouble for arresting him for DUI & then in their system say it was for something els
A family friend got arrested for a DUI (of drugs). Thepolice asked him what he was on and he said klonopin.which was true. They asked if they would find any other drugs in his system. He said yes. Majauwana and heroin. He had stopped those within the week. And knew they would show up in his system. They did. But his levels showed that he was not high on them at the time of the arrest. They took him to jail. And had him being arrested for invalid drivers license. They set bond. I went to get him and he was outside. I went in to pay it and they said all charges had been dropped and that he was good to go. Next day went to bmv and his license was fine. Valid. 16 hours in jail for nothing. Almost a year later he gets a letter in mail saying they are taking him to court.what should he expect?
Get him an attorney. Too many odd facts/variables to speculate on this forum.
What is the difference between dismissal and discharge in Indiana, particularly in a criminal DUI case?
About four years ago I got a DUI in Indiana. The prosecutor offered me a deal where the charge 'went away' after I completed some requirements (classes, probation, etc). I am currently about to deal with a DUI in Colorado. Looking at my charge from indiana, I'm not sure that it did... I can't find it in mycourts.in.gov odyssey search, but I was able to find it through the county courts website and purchase a copy of my case. It ends with: "2013-11-19 COMES NOW PROBATION (HI) AND FILES DISCHARGE. " Is that better / worse than dismissal for what I am facing? Will this be viewed as a second DUI in Colorado?
I suggest you repost this with Colorado as your location. You will need a Colorado attorney to tell you how the...

Convicted of OVI in Ohio, live in Indiana. Is Ohio wrong in asking for reinstatement fee?
My boyfriend was convicted of an OVI in Ohio(we live in Indiana), he plead guilty and got a 6 month license suspension, among other things. A couple months later Ohio sent him a letter telling him to send in his driver's license, proof of insurance and a reinstatement fee of $475. I looked online and it says Ohio cannot take out of state licenses, it's up to the home state. Is Ohio mistaken in asking for this? Does he owe them a reinstatement fee since he doesn't have an Ohio driver's license? Indiana has not sent him anything asking for a reinstatement fee or even saying that his license is suspended. He went through a Driver Safety Program required by the Indiana BMV and that plus the OVI are on his driver record, but his driver record doesn't even say he has a suspension. I'm not sure what to do, he wants to call a lawyer, but I feel that's too drastic. If Ohio is mistaken should we just call the BMV they're telling him to send his license to and explain he's not a resident? And why would his driving record not have the driving suspension on it, does it mean he's not suspended in Indiana?
Seems like you've been sent a form letter. No, it doesn't apply to him.
Am I eligible for any kind of restricted license and if yes, what do I need to file? My lawyer hasn't replied to any of my calls
I was convicted on my 3rd DUI, due to the length of time it had been since my last DUI it was a class A misdemeanor. I lost my license for 2 years due to refusal of breathalyzer and an additional 6 months for my charge. This happened in June of 2014.
My best advice, if your attorney won't return your calls, look for another local attorney to assist you.
Does prescription narcotics in a urine test constitute DUI, without a blood test to determine what's in your system & how much?
I have retained counsel, but haven't had a face-to-face yet. I'm a disabled vet & have been on the same narc prescriptions for 26 yrs. I drove to assist a friend (hadn't been out of my home in 4 days - flu) & when reversing, suddenly felt dizzy. Immediately pulled into a parking spot in a parking lot. Turned off vehicle, but was listening to radio with windows down. Police arrived (claimed someone called about person in vehicle). I told officer I felt dizzy, almost like having a stroke. Police proceeded to accuse me of being drunk, FST & breath test - 0.00. They then took me for a urine drug test at Hosp. Minutes after providing sample, was told I was under arrest for DUI for medication. I felt I had nothing to hide, so I went along with tests, but they told me that refusal to do tests was legal admission of guilt. I did not have any medications or bottles with me. The officers offered no concern for my health, but kept telling me I was drunk or high. I have no criminal history, except speeding tickets. Does simply having prescription med in my urine justify DUI charge? No blood sample was taken.
Because you have retained counsel, you need to discuss your matter with said attorney. Good luck.
