Being charged for my 2nd DUI within 5 years, what is my likely outcome?
When pulled over I was asked how much I had to drink I said 6 beers from 7pm-1:30am. I suffer from extreme anxiety disorder and when asked to do the pen, and other field tests I couldnt do them because of was having an anxiety attack. Asked for my medication they refused and arrested me for being unable to drive. When arresting me during my attack I told them to give me a breathalyzer, they refused and said i'm going to jail. The EMT was called and was taken to the hospital, 2 1/2 hours of hyperventilating/anxiety attack they gave me an IV of Adavan, officers gave me a citation and I refused a blood draw from them. I don't know what is going to happen, I'm 23, a college student, and I work. I feel like they are going to destroy my life from what I've researched! Help please.

How can i win a hearing for intoxication (code one offense) since i am not responsible for it because i got roofied?
Hi I am a student at the university and i got charged for intoxication. That night i was at a house and i was given a drink by a guy. After only one drink i blacked out. I am pretty sure there was something in that drink,and i believe i got roofied. Later that night I was found by an RA in a condition where i looked intoxicated. How can i tell them that it wasn't my fault because i didn't ''get myself intoxicated''? What would be good proofs? Should I mention the fact that I don't drink, and I've never done it with the purpose of ''getting drunk''? Thank you so much for Your help.

Do I need a lawyer/ attourney?
I was recently written up (in lieu of an arrest) for underage possesion of beer I was also cited over two years ago for underage intoxication. I don't know if since I had that prior charge from over two years ago if the possesion charge this time would enable me to need representation while in court this time. I am already planning on entering into the AEP before my court date, but was wondering even if I asked for a continuance, take the class, and pay the fine, if I would still face jail time?
You should consult with an experienced attorney. You're taking a chance doing legal analysis on your own. Ideally,...

I was sentenced with a 5 year driver's license suspension on Feb. 18, 2010, due to a second OVI charge. I was wondering if there is any way I can get the suspension lowered to a year or at least lower than 5 years?

Can I get my sentence changed since I got a job two days after my court date?
My charge was a second OVI in a little over for years. My BAC was .162. I called the police, therefore they never pulled me over. The state minimum for ohio was 10 days in jail or, 5 days in jail with 18 consecutive days house arrest. The judge sentenced me with the 10 days. However, I got a job two days later, so I was wondering if it's possible to try to get the jail term changed since I haven't served it yet? Can I possibly get community service or at least the 5 days with 18 consecutive on house arrest?
