I was involved in a motorcycle accident I hit a boat trailer on the highway I went to the hospital as of my injuries
I had a really good concussion and I was dazed I didn't know what was going on .when the officer was talking to me was he though I was on some type of narcotics .I took blood when I was in the hospital around the 1 am accident happened around 11 Pm .. I wasn't drinking and I wasn't on any type on the narcotics but my question is? I smoked marijuana at night to help me sleep. accident happen on the 23 of May at 11:00pm . I smoked a day before .at night around 9-10pm so I had a full 27 to 28 hrs for the marijuana to pass through my blood system .. Waiting on the police intoxication report are they going to find it in my blood ..
depending on who's fault the accident is the results of the testing may be inadmissible as irrelevant and prejudicial....
Can I fight back after dismissed DUI case?
Hi, was charged with a 2nd DUI in California on my driveway, luckily dash camera of near parked car recorded everything. Went with a lawyer, eventually case has been dismissed due to insufficient evidence. (i took a cab home and never drove as recorded on the video) Question, do I have a chance to fight back with Roseville PD to get compensation? it cost me money, stress and many more unpleasant feelings.
Sorry, but no. Being found not guilty of a criminal charge is not the same as being factually innocent, it just means...
What can I do to get them to recognize that the exemption time has passed?
Dmv is saying that time never started on my iid exemption because I did not get sr22 and pay the 125 re-issuance fee. It has been three years since my dui and I filed the exemption paperwork before the 30 day limit back in 2013. AB 91 under 13 is the requirements in which I followed does not state anything about reinstating a license begins the exemption only that I had to file the exemption paperwork in which I did and was approved in 2013. They are stating that the approval paperwork they sent me states that I had to pay fee but this was after I was approved. The paperwork for the exemption did not state anywhere on it that the time would not start till after dmv fee was paid to get a reissued drivers license when I did not own a vehicle. Seems like I was not exempt unless dmv and the insurance got money.
Best of luck with this. The DMV is a monster and very difficult to deal with.
Is this a winnable case? Should I see if I can still take a plea? Should I hire a private lawyer?
I was arrested for DUI at my home 1 hour after an incident at my mothers home. At 8:07 my drunken step father called 911 stating that I came over drunk to pick a fight, "I beat him with rebar, he left, I wanted him arrested". This is from the 911 call log. In short I came over to do laundry and an argument started as I was leaving he struck me several times with rebar. I drove home hurt and bloody. I started drinking heavily when I got home the police showed up 78 minutes later and arrested me at my home. I was breathalyzed at the jail for the first time over 2 hours later from the original 911 call. Blew a .36 and the .39 after. The jail nurse instructed the officer to take me to the ER for my head and neck injuries from my stepfather. I am now scheduled for trial in 2 months for DUI and DUI with high BAC. I have been reassigned 3 different public defenders leading up to trial. The first 2 PDs said my case is winnable after talking to witnesses. The current one advises against trial and seemed upset whenI chose a trial.
You have a lawyer. Speak with your lawyer or put some skin in the game and retain private counsel. Sounds like a...
Do I have a chance of dropping my DUI charge if I have video that my car has never moved?
Hi, I have 3rd DUI charge pending, 2n'd was about 2.5 years ago which was dropped to 1st. My first DUI was in Florida in 2004. A month ago neighbors called the police because they saw me sleeping in the car on my driveway. By the time police and ambulance came, I was already outside and my car was locked. I failed sobriety test and blew .21. I also have a video of how i came home in the taxi and my car never moved. I read that prosecution has to prove that I actually drove the car, do you think video of me not driving is valid enough reasons to get charges dropped? I also have all taxi and lyft receipts which justify my story of not driving at all. After all, i learned my lesson from two priors, that's why I take taxi and lyft everywhere I go when i decide to drink. Reason of me getting in my car in the first place was because after being out all night, I needed to get a charger from my car and fell asleep while looking for it. Do you think I have a defensible case?
I do think you have a defensible case, but you need a skilled lawyer to properly present it. Good luck.
I need a re-referral for my DUI school. This is the second time I am asking for the paperwork. Will I be in trouble?
I can't show up to court personally because I moved to Southern California. They knew this prior. Will my public defender still help me?
Maybe. Have you called them? Why can't you get his done? It's not that difficult.
How to obtain Blood results before my DUI hearing
Can I obtain my blood results BAC from a blood draw that was taken at the hospital after a minor accident? Can I also obtain my breathalyzer results before the hearing?
I hope you're not considering representing yourself. That's a terrible idea. You need to request "discovery" from the...
