I got charged with a 1st DUI last year after having a fender-bender. I am on rx medication for chronic pain, oxycontin, when I told the police officer I hadn't been drinking and was only on rx med, he went nuts when I said oxycontin. I refused the blood test, ended up pleading an alford. Then a few months ago, I got into an argument with a guy, after I left he called the police and told them I was drinking and snorting pills out of a bag. The police pulled me over, my BAC was zero, he tore my car apart looking for pills and alcohol, found none He said I failed the field sobriety test because I didn't count loud enough, therefore didnt' follow directions and that I couldn't keep my balance, which I couldn't because of my injury and chronic pain.I am fighting it because the call was bogus
it sounds like it was bogus. Make sure to contact an attorney who is knowledgeable about DUI. Sounds like you have a...

That is an excellent question. It is not a question of what you pay an attorney. It is a question of lawyers skill...
My son who lived in Louisville Kentucky at the time got a DUI (after two beers), the officer said she pulled him over for speeding even though we know that wasn't the case since he is very very particular about speeding, it has & will never happen with him he is adamant about not speeding. He had just left to head home after a couple beers with friends and was cited for drunk driving. There was something not right about this case and we hired a layer but he did absolutely nothing. In any case he was working had no car & money was very scarce. We were not aware he wasn't able to attend classes, now he's home. He will be working shortly & is going back to school next semester. Please tell us what we need to do next & how to get this case closed & his license back. Thank You!
It sounds like his case was already concluded so all the arguments about whether he was actually speeding or drunk...
I am currently on Probation for a DUI in TN. My charges were dropped to Reckless Driving. I was given 6 months probation with one drug test but was given no date to take the test until my last call which was on Jan 14. During this call I was assigned a different officer as mine had taken vacation and informed I had 2 days to take the drug test. I smoked weed every other day the last week of Dec, the last time I smoked was Jan 3. I took my test on Jan 16 and am very concerned what will happen if I failed it. My probation is supposed to end in March with my last call being Feb 25. I do not know if I should call the lab and attempt to get the results so that I know whether I passed the test. What is the likelihood that I passed the drug test and if I did not what will happen?
If you have a dirty urine, that would be a violation of the terms of your probation. The prosecutor could make a motion...
Last month my probation officer said he was going to do a review on my case and see if I could see him less than once a month. I ended up failing my drug test. He told me he will have to write the judge. Does this mean I will be violated and if so will they arrest me when I go back?
It means he will submit a report to the judge describing what happened with your drug test. The judge may then find...
I was arrested for a DUI 3rd offense within a short period of time. However, my first two DUIs are both technically 1st offenses...that is how they were both prosecuted. After the second first, I didn't receive a SCRAM. In this event, I was passed out in the car with the car running and in park. No movement at all. I was parked in a private parking lot down the street from my house. The owner of the establishment called an EMT and I was taken to the hospital with a high BAC and didn't receive a copy of my DUI citation. I've since completed a stint in alcohol rehabilitation. This was many months ago, and I didn't know I had charges against me until recently. I am scared to death at the possibility of a guilty verdict for DUI 3rd. Any help or advice would be much appreciated.
the best thing you can do is hire a very good attorney and enter an AA or other rehab program immediately.
I received a DUI in 2013 in KY, and will be moving to OH in 2015. My license has been reinstated and I am not on probation. Will I have any legal issues moving to OH or getting a driver's license there? I know OH is an sr22 state.
As long as you are in compliance with whatever you need to do in KY and have and maintain SR22, you should ok as far as...
