I got a flat tire and called Walmart and was told that the tire and lube center would be open at 7 AM , I Stayed awake all night fearing I would fall asleep and wouldn't wake in time to get a new tire. And then fell asleep about 25 minutes before the tire center opened another employee called the police. The police tried to wake me with no responce, Then my wife shouted my name and woke me. Asked if i new where i was I said in my brothers drive way due to being half asleep I was then told I had to do a field test. After, I was told that I was under arrest for suspicion of dui and I had to do a blood test in which I refused asking what part i failed and asked for a lawyer "he said all of it and to just have a seat Matt" ( My name is Joe) the officer called me Matt 3 or 4 times.

My reason for refusal is; needles send me strait into an anxiety attack, due to I have Ptsd. I Just refused blood being taking and I asked for a lawyer on 3 more occasions before I was read the dui refusis sheet.
Sure. They can charge anyone they believe they have probable cause committed a crime. The million dollar question is...
What is the likelihood that a driver license suspension will be adjusted through the appeals process?
My son refused a blood alcohol test which resulted in an automatic one year suspension of his license. He then had to appear in court and was admitted to the ARD program, but that included an additional 60 day suspension. We just received notice that the 60 day suspension will run in addition to the current year. In effect making it a 14 month suspension. If we appeal is it possible to change that to concurrent with the 12 month suspension that he is already serving?
Very, very, very difficult to win. All the cop has to do is read him the warnings that he has to give blood or lose...
Will I be drug tested on ARD?
I am going for to my ARD placement in about a week from now for paraphernalia and small possession of marijuana in Centre County Pennsylvania. I am not worried about failing a drug test as I have kept colors but I am wondering if I will be tested at some point and when that would be?
Just continue under the assumption that you will be and you won't know when. That way you don't have to worry when and...
If the PA state police issued the citation to my daughter at Penn State, is it true that they do not have the ability to charge?
My daughter received a second offense for underage drinking at state college. Is there any way to do community service to avoid the drivers license suspension of 1 year for the second offense? Should she plead guilty or not guilty? Thanks
Where there is a will there is often a way. Your salvation will most not likely lie in the officer not having...
How is it determined whether you do state time or county time?
My mom did 6 months of county jail time for DUI's while waiting to be sentenced. She got 1 - 5 years and doesn't know yet whether she'll remain at county or not.
Even with a state sentence, she could spend her entire sentence in county.
I was charged with a DUI, but when I received police report it never states what I actually blew in the breathalyzers??
I refused blood but nowhere in the discovery report did it say what I actually blew in the breathalyzer? If there was no blood taken how is this not in the report what I blew? I'm confused. It just said I performed FST unsatisfactory
By "breathalyzer" it is my presumption that you means the Portable Breath Test at the roadside. This is also called a...
2nd dui offense, is house arrest possible? or less than 30 days in jail?
I received my second DUI this Friday. My first DUI was in 2014. My vehicle was struck by another car but because any alcohol was in my system I was charged for the cause of the accident and received a DUI. My bac in that accident was .08. I don't know what my bac was this past weekend. Everything I have been able to find is that more than likely I will have 30 days in jails, mandatory minimum? I am a single mother, I work full time M-F and attend nursing school in the evenings and every other weekend. If I go to jail I will lose all of this. Is there any chance I could get house arrest?
