I got a DUI and I won my DMV hearing, hence they took my license anyways, can I fight this?
I got a DUI 9/13 in KS. I filed within 10 days for a hearing with DMV. I won hearing with DMV based on evidence that the cop didn't fill out form properly, but changed his copy before mailing to DMV to be correct for them. Therefore they dismissed any admin actions against my license. I then plead guilty to my DUI 5/14. On 9/15/14 i received a letter dated 9/11/14 that my license was suspended effective 9/11/2014-10/13/2014 and then 6 months interlock device. (nothing like giving me a notice, I'm glad I wasn't pulled over from 9/11-9/15). They already "technically" took my license once, they just could not actually take it because I won my DMV case. Is it right for them to take it anyways? what was the point in filing a hearing if they took anyways. they can't take twice??
You are correct in that they cannot take your license twice for the same driving event. However in order to have no...

DUI questions
I am being charged with DUI even though I wasn't seen driving. I lied for my boyfriend at the time who had an accident behind me. I claimed something like a cat or dog came across the road and caused him to swerve into a fixed object. By the time police and ambulance services came, my car was parked in a parking lot with the keys/FOB in the front flap of my purse. My car doesn't operate using a key-it uses a FOB, the hood was cold and no GPS was pulled out of it showing when it was last operated. There was mass confusion on the scene-my then boyfriend had a head injury and the cop who started in on me wasn't the original cop on the scene. We were told about the confusion from the tow truck people I called. I refused to do any field sobriety tests. I wasn't allowed to leave and was placed in handcuffs. It was a custody. I had a blood test done. I know for a fact they used an alcohol swab because I have a severe aversion to needles. It came out .08. At that point, they said I wasn't in custody and free to go-releasing me to drive. 7 mos. ltr., I get the citation in the mail. Is it normal to allow someone under the suspicion of DUI to just leave and get back in a car to drive home?
It is atypical, and probably good for your defense, especially during cross-examination. However, though atypical,...
Can I be issued a citation for "boating under the influence" if I am boating on PRIVATE property rather than on public waterways
I was recently fishing on a river in Kansas and had drank a few beers, upon returning to shore I was approached by law enforcement and subsequently given a BUI. I didn't think they had jurisdiction on private property, like they do on public waters.
I don't know what the Kansas case law says, but the statute says you can't operate a boat while intoxicated anywhere in...

Could my evidentiary breath test results be suppressed if the machine did not print the results at the time of the test?
Due to a printing error, no actual results were printed at the time of the test by the intoxilyzer 8000. The results of the test were later retrieved by KDH. I don't know if the unit was sent out for maintenance to retrieve my results. I'm very concerned of any further use of machine before my official results could be retrieved. My official result came back +0.20.
Your question is one that we have had to address several times in the past. First of all, "suppression" of test...
