What do I need to prove I drove?
I drove a drunk friend home one night. We got into an argument and I left his truck parked in front of his neighbors house. (I get the two houses mixed up all the time). I took off walking to go back to get my car to go home. After I left, he was so drunk(black out drunk), he walked up to the wrong house and tried to unlock the door. The people living there thought someone was trying to break in and called the police. When the police arrived, he was found standing outside, his truck was locked and his keys were not on him. He didn't know what was going on and ended up telling them that he drove. He was arrested for DUI. How can I go in and show that I was the one, in fact, that drove him? I was completely sober, by the way. I just don't want him to get in this kind of trouble for something he didn't do.

Have my charges been dropped?
I had a wreck several months ago that nearly killed me. The paramedics said I checked out fine, but I was in shock. The police officer, who long story short doesn't like me because of the people I used to hangout with, subjects me to a sobriety test. I tell him I am in shock and my legs were shaky, and I don't feel right. He proceeds, and of course fails me on the 60 second count and balance. (Every second I counted was around 1.5). He arrested me, forced me to take a drug test or else my license was immediately revoked. (I am under 18) I took the drug test and lab results were supposed to be in by 6-8weeks. It has been 12. I went to my subjected court date and they said I would receive a paper in the mail. My friend got a summons for charges he got recently, I didn't.
The case against you has not been dropped. You need to hire, or at the very least consult with, an attorney and...

My insurance says DUI, but my ticket says otherwise, what can be done?
I got a ticket in Illinois last year, age 22, 200% sober, I had one drink with one shot worth of alcohol then waited 2 hrs to drive home, no way I could reach the bottle (which had barely a swig in it, it was basically an empty bottle) on the back seat of my SUV. I passed a field sobriety test, the officer refused a BAC test when I offered (I was just too tired from work to walk around like a dumb@$$), she gave me a ticket for illegal transportation. They apparently think everyone is a drunk around here, because this was the 3rd time in about 2 years I had a field sobriety test and passed because well, I drink once a blue moon, and not while I am driving.. My question is because I recently saw this on my policy when I renewed this year and it says I got a DUI, which is not what it says on my ticket. What can I do about this? Can I have it removed? because apparently I've been paying for a DUI violation for a year, and I didn't notice because it just comes out of my account every month, with me assuming it's the same price each time. Thank you so much for answering! Happy Holidays

DUI in Indiana but licensed in Illinois?
My boyfriend got pulled over and got a DUI. He's going to college in Indiana but has an Illinois license. He didn't tell me what his BAC was when he got pulled over but he just got a ticket, not arrested. He still has his license or at least a temporary one since he's still able to drive. He has court in February. What can we expect as far as charges and consequences? Also how will Illinois handle it with his record after Indiana deals with him? Thank you!
Illinois will revoke his drivers license upon receiving notice of a conviction in Indiana, so he should retain the best...
