Should I consider getting a lawyer, and will the DA try to change my charges to a DUI? I was cited for leaving the scene.
I drove intoxicated. I don't remember anything (I now have reports that several other people coming from the same bar also blacked out that night. There are rumors of maybe someone putting drugs in drinks that night.) I ended up side swiping a vehicle in my boyfriend's uninsured SUV (I didn't know it was uninsured at the time.) The damage was found the next day and reported to police. I was questioned over the phone. I told them the truth, that I don't remember anything but I had had the keys all night as far as I know. They made it sound to me that if I didn't fess up and say I remember doing it, that they were going to go after both my boyfriend as well. I admitted to the police that I remembered doing it. I'm scared and this is the first time I've been charged with anything.
Even if you end up being prosecuted only for leaving the scene, you should retain a criminal defense attorney. Leaving...
Highly intoxicated at 3:00 am. Walked home from the bar and ended up 1 block west of his home. He thought he was at home so he was banging on the door demanding that someone let him in. In the process he broke the window but never got into the house. He is being held on 1st Degree Burglary. What can he actually be charged with for this incident? - burglary definitely isn't one.
There are a number of possibilities. Perhaps the most significant is a potential felony burglary charge. The elements...
Friend received DWI in my vehicle. My plates were impounded. Plate requirements for other vehicles and duration questions?
Registration was renewed in August 2014. Incident occurred in December 2014. Do I need to wait until August 2016 for regular plates or just December 2015? Also, if I purchase another vehicle would whiskey plates also be required?
You should contact an attorney to discuss in more detail. Depending on the circumstances you may not have to wait at all.
Is it right for my car to be held with no prior convictions and no DUI evidence/urine sample results?
I was raped and tested for DUI on the same night. I don't know what I blew, but I don't believe I could've been over the limit considering the amount I drank (three beers, one shot) in a seven-hour span. My car has been released from the investigation pertaining to my rape, after they inspected it for evidence. The rape case has been dropped due to a lack of evidence. However, my car is still being held in the impound lot for the DUI, according to the officer that originally handled my case that night. I called an attorney for advice, and he informed me that it isn't within their rights to hold my car with no prior convictions (I have a clean record) and no results regarding the DUI that may incriminate me. The urine sample could take weeks to process. What do I do to get my car back?
Ya. I don't see a legal basis for them to hold the vehicle here. You can retain a lawyer to help you both with...

Why did it take 5 months to get my blood test results after a DUI arrest? Why my license revoked before I was charged or found
guilty. I have Ataxia, so my balance is off and so failed the field sobriety test several times. The state told me that it came back positive for narcotics, but no one told me of what drug(s).
All good questions. First let me say that it is best to talk with an experienced DWI attorney in person or over phone...
Instead of having to go through getting a car interlock and a temporary license for one year.
Check with a Minnesota attorney to be sure but in Florida, no. The license suspension after a second DUI has mandatory...
