What will happen if I was in an at fault car accident and my license was under suspension?
The officers on scene did not say anything, I did not admit anything on scene, are they going to come knocking on my door to arrest me?
Sounds like you dodged that bullet, but you could still be prosecuted. They won't come knocking on your door, but you...
Refused breathalyzer; blood test 2hous later was .1 then 2hours later breathalyzer .04?
I refused breathalyzer because police behavior was questionable, and I was feeling ill (turns out I had food poisoning for the next 3 days). They took me to station where they refused to give me water ended up at hospital where I drank water. Two hours after initial stop the blood test read .11 and 2 hours after that the breathalyzer read .04. All the events were rather strange, and I realize the refusal is an issue, however I was not feeling okay about the whole situation, which is why I refused ( I felt I needed time to think). Given the timeline what do think the perception will be if I go to trial to fight the DUI or get it to a much lower punishment, like probation under a non DUI charge (they are pushing hard for a breathalyzer device in my car which will hurt my employment and my children's community perception of me (they will talk about mom in whispers - not fair to them).
I definitely think you have some issues that can be exploited here to mitigate your situation. In order to get the...
When can I find out my BAC after getting a dui? At the courthouse?
I was arrested for swiping a garbage can and not stopping. There was no place to pull over I lived a minute away it was 2:00 am in the morning and I could not call the garbage company to tell them. I was outside my house and a cop pulled up he smelled alcohol and arrested me. He arrested me for a hit and run and also administered a blood test at the station. I had four drinks in 6 hours.
It's not a good idea to post the facts of the case on a public website. Better to speak in confidence with your...

"CASE CLOSED" --What, why, and how???
Convicted of a DUI in 2009, in Alameda County, California.I was sentenced to one day's community service, DUI School, and a fine of $1700. Paid fine. Did not complete the school, and I did not show for the assigned community service work date. Bench warrant issued 9/2009. Today I called criminal clerk, he pulled my file. He told me that the warrant had been recalled (July 2014) and the case was closed. Come fill out papers. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN??? I was originally calling the courthouse to make arrangements to turn myself in.
I'd contact an attorney in Alameda County. It's odd that the warrant was recalled if you never appeared.
