2nd dui in ten years, minor fender bender, No BAC. Dismissal?
Hi, I was involved in a fender bender where I bumped into the back of another car. Officer said he smelled alcohol, gave me the walk-and-turn test and the nystagmus test and arrested me. I did admit to having at least one drink 4-6 hours prior at lunch. I requested a breathalyzer, they said they didn't have any in Patrol units so they were going to take me to the police department to get it done- we went there and they again did not breathalyze me so I asked again, they said they would take me to the hospital to get my blood drawn. They took me straight to jail where I once again asked for a breathalyzer and never received it, even though I know for a fact they have a large breathalyzer machine in the jail. I also went to a doctor afterwards and got evidence that I had a minor head injury in the accident, how can I be expected to walk a straight line after an accident like that? I'm retaining a very competent lawyer and he's waiting on the motion of Discovery now. Can I get this thing dismissed? If I'm offered a plea bargain should I take it or try to push against this?
Talk to your very competent attorney. That is what you are paying him for. As you are represented by counsel other...
Can DUI's over 10yrs past be admitted during a trial or if found guilty as a part of sentencing?
I've been charged with a DUI 1st offense, I've had DUI's in the past, the last being 13yrs ago. I contacted an attorney (in VA) who has taken the NCDD course as I feel my case may require it. His secretary said he only take DUI's 1st and 2nd. I stated that I hadn't had one in 13yrs but that didn't seem to matter. She seemed concerned with the former DUI's which is why I ask the above question. There's little question that if a judge is aware of former DUI's he's going to take that into consideration as to whether i'm not guilty and also for sentencing if he finds me guilty.
Your entire record will be considered. However a dui more than ten years old will not enhance it to a second.
