What can I do to get my husband out of jail he was charged with a alleged DUI not alcohol related.
My husband is in jail tonight. A driver in the town I live in called in to the police stating that he was under the influence. Police officers pulled over my husband my husband does not drink alcohol but he is on prescribed medication. They handcuffed my husband and took him to jail and they also cleaned out his truck they stated that he was under the influence of Narcotics and he couldn't pass their sobriety test but he did pass a urine test in jail. I picked him up not knowing the seriousness of the whole situation and he went ahead and drove home which we were only 2 miles away and the same cop that arrested him was waiting somewhere off the side of the road pulled us over again and then unmercifully took my husband back to jail and said that he was swerving. Then the cop came back and told me that he was abusing his drugs he had a pill crusher yes there no law that says you can't crush your pill and snort them. that he had it on his nose which "I doubt very much l said that's an alleged allegation.

Had a dui 4 yrs ago was put in diversion. Did not complete it went back to my home state instead where I had a job and a home and was pretty much destitute while in OR where I didn't have a job or a home. Came back to OR 2 weeks ago turned myself in now I go to sentencing on the 29th for violation of diversion, violation of probation, duii, I think still being charged with FTA not sure on that, + failure to do 40 hours community service. I'm seeing a lawyer in about 9 days but I'm a bit nervous as to what I may get. They gave me a show cause hearing right before my sentencing. Wondering what the minimums and maximum penalty's are. Thought I was doing the right thing by turning myself in now I'm not so sure I should have. I'm thinking this judge is gonna stick it to me cuz he wasn't to nice
Why are you waiting 9 days to see a lawyer? Talk to one immediately. If you want to locate one in your area here on...

DWS 1st charge, appeared on court date, D.A. did not file, can and will he file at a later time, Can it be dismissed?
DUII charge was 10-23-09, UA still wasn't back in 2-22-10 decided to plead no contest and get it moving. I completed all requirments of the diversion on 5-3-10 submitted all to the courts, there are no other citations on my record of almost 40+ years. DWS was a 4 hr drive 8:30a, I called the week prior to get the documantaion fo citation w/audioand video was told no, by the police department and the D.A.'s office. They did not file I appear and there are no charges w/no filing, also no court appoionted attorney. Can this hang over me indefinately or possibly a warrent for my arrest if they file and I don't know, can't appear. Can they do whatever, whenever and yet I wasn't given even 30 days or any evidence of the charge on me. Also as w/the DUII I was not driving or intoxcated w/DWS. Help
Why did you plead no contest to DUII if you weren't even driving?
I have a warrant for Dui from 4 years ago and need drug treatment. I'm pregnant and I want to go to treatment.
Will I be arrested?
This is not a constitutional question. I will repost as criminal defense so criminal defense attorneys in Oregon can...
