Can I get a criminal charge for nitrus. And dui?
This situation is pretty messed up, I was driving completely sober and got pulled over by cops one thing led to another I was nervous and "looked under the influence" the cops heard nitrus canisters in my bag some were empty some were filled and I also had baloons and a nitrus cracker in my car, They gave me some weird field sobriety tests which they said I failed I was nervous and tired at that point. I was checked into a station were the breathalyzed me I came up as 0 and they took my blood wich I am confident doesn't have any drugs in it since I've been sober for quite a long time. My questions are am I screwed in the nitrus area of the case? Can I prove to them that I had no intention of inhaling the nitrus with the cracker and baloons there? if I pass the 2 drug tests am I safe?
It would be pretty hard to convict a person for "drugged" driving without any positive drug tests no matter the claims...
Did I really get a dui?
I just turned 18 this month. A few nights ago I was at my friends house around 4AM. We smoked some weed and then parted ways. I ended up going to my car which was near her house. The next thing I remember is waking up in my car (still near her house) with a police officer standing outside my driver door. He had me preform a variety of field sobriety tests such as folowing his finger with my eyes and walking in a line. He arrested me for a dui and had me blood tested at the station. I was released with a summons. I did some research about DUIs, and I found that if you seem like youre ready to drive then you can be convicted of a dui. My car is a push to start. The car engine was not on (to the best of my recollection) it was only turned on to the point that that lights and A/C worked.
Sounds like you need to retain defense counsel and defend the case. You've been accused of. DUI, but not yet convicted.
DUI case was dropped, will it still show on my record?
I was booked for DUI in 2007 in Pleanston, CA & spent the night in jail. I went to the court house for my hearing and was told that they couldn't locate my file and the only thing I had I pay was a speeding fine. Will my record still show a DUI despite the fact that court couldn't find my file?
The arrest record will remain on your record. Hire counsel to take care of that
First Offense DUI blew 0.15 on a breathalyze but 0.19 on blood work.
This is my first DUI offense and I highly regret doing it. There was no incidents and no other charges. I was pulled over going back home from a party. The officer made me blow and the breathalyzer showed 0.15. He immediately arrested me and took me to jail and I stayed there for 12 hours. I requested a hearing and they told me my blood work shows 0.19. However I went to my first court date after 27 days. I went upstairs to DA's office they told me they don't have my files yet. I'm scared of serving jail time and is that mandatory or with first offense you don't usually serve? Thanks in advance.

Would it be a good idea to hire an attorney?
A 16 year old with a provisional drivers license was pulled over, had 3 others in the vehicle. One of the under age passengers had alcohol in his pack back that was in the trunk. The driver was cited for 23224 (a) VC. The driver told the officer the truth about knowing the alcohol was in the trunk. The officer told the driver there is a 90% chance of losing their license for a year? Can that be fought?
