DA will not provide records from the state police of who was diving/with the rookie since the Cprl passed away 12 days after?
I am now on my 3rd lawyer &thinks i should take a plea deal,but its the same one from the 1st time before my 1st lawyer denied it & cross examined the rookie not the Cprl i was pulled over by . It was 1 car w/2troopers the Cprl did everything, talked, searched, cuffed put me in the back. Never spoke to the rookie on scene, he was searching (w/o consent). The Cprl. was killed 12 days after. Since he did all thework on scene drove me/rookie to the barracks but he left & The rookie drove me to the hospital, I gave blood and rookie read me my rights. Issue i have is why is the rookie testifying and not Cprl. bc he lied and said he was with a diff Cprl, he Drove etc.? another car showed up to secure the tow. I think hes flip flopping the two, he was a 3mo trooper, stuttering when asked about the late Cprl. he did NOT preserve the dashcam video, it took 5.5 mos to file the complaint. So, since the rookie said he did everything but did not preserve the dashcam, its now my word against any troopers. So, why cant they get discovery from the state on who the rookie was with, where is the Cprl at hes saying he was with? Why do i have to prove it when he didnt follow proper procedure. Advice?
It sounds like you want to go to trial. You should then. There are higher fees going to trial. Tell your current lawyer....
With the birchfield v North Dakota ruling blood in my case will not be admissable, how can the prosecutor prove what tier dui?
I am the defendant in a DUI case in PA, where the birchfield ruling makes it so my blood is not admissable in my case. The prosecutor has not dropped the charge to general impairment and I am being charged for my 2nd DUI, 3rd (highest) tier. As of now I am scheduled for a jury trial in a month and a half but can change to a bench if I think it's in my best interest. The prosecutor only has the police witness testimony as evidence. My PD says my blood is not admissable by the prosecution, there was a portable breath test given but no number was recorded (I'm told it's also not admissable), no video of the field sobreity test is available, I was never marandized. With such little evidence I can be found guilty of DUI at all, much less the 3rd tier. It is my understanding that for me to be convicted of tier 3 DUI the prosecution must prove my bac was .16 or higher. How is that possible given they have no data (admissable anyways) supporting their claim? PLEASE HELP! Am I missing something? Also should i go for a bench or jury trial in your opinion? ifni take the stand and deny drinking (or drinking that much) can they then introduce my blood as evidence? Thank
You have an attorney. You need to talk to them. Second guessing them in an online forum isnt going to help you. If...
Can I still be charged with dui if my blood was obtained without a warrant one week before the law changed about requiring warra
I was pulled over for dui. No alcohol, I was prescribed pain meds for appendix problem. They took my blood and arrested me. One week later Supreme Court changes law to requir a warrant for blood test, which they did not do. I heard nothing for 4 months; now it appears they are charging me.
Yes. You can still be charged. Whether you will be convicted or not is another matter.
1 year since incident, why am I getting mail about being charged?
On 9/26/2015 I was stopped for running a redlight, I was given a breathalyzer, I blew and the officer would not tell me what I blew and was asked for a blood test, I refused. On 11/10/2015 I notified by penndot that I would loose my license for 1 year for the refusal. So It's been a year and two days from the time I was stopped and today I received 3 letters from lawfirms soliciting representation for dui. I have not received anything from my local county since I was stopped saying that I have been charged. Are they seriously just now coming after me?
It is unusual for it to take a year to file charges but not unheard of. It is likely that your case was filed and...
Can I get a conviction for DUI overturned in Montgomery County PA?
I was pulled over in September 2014 for DUI. I was in Wawa getting cigs and knew a local cop was in there. I purchased cigs and left. About 1 mile later, this cop pulled me over. He told me he was pulling me over because the Wawa cashier said I was acting crazy. I am not crazy by any means and just purchased cigs and left. He gave me a field sobriety test and I was passing. At this point the other cop who showed up was telling me they would just take me home since I lived right up the street. On the last test, lifting your right foot and counting, I made it to 17 seconds. While the cop was demonstrating how to do this, his left foot was shaking like crazy. Before I did the test, I asked him if it would be ok if my left foot shaked crazy like his. He the said, "just do it." I could tell this upset him and when I counted to 17 he said stop, you are under arrest. He took me to the hospital and they took my blood. It came back .08. At the preliminar he admitted he had no reason to pull me over since I did not violate any traffic rules and my Jeep was in great shape. The judge said she would toss this out if she had the power. At the appeal, the judge said guilty. I have more to say.
I would definitely suggest fighting the case. Sounds winnable.
On DUI Probation for 5 years, does this mean if i violate I am looking at 5 years in Jail?
My Docket sheet says: IPP Min of 90.00 Days/Max of 59.00 Months 20.00 Days. I served 10 days in jail, as well as 90 days house arrest. If i violate, is it 5 years or not since it doesn't say anything about a suspended sentence.
Sounds like you received a jail sentence followed by parole. No one can answer your question because it depends on the...
