Can a dui charge hold for .07 bac? Williamsburg Va
was arrested blowing a .099 on scene ( officer said that couldnt be held against me in court as only the one at the station would count.) At the station I blew .07 but was still arrested and charged. Now I have to spend money to hire a lawyer even though I was below legal limit. Can I get this thrown out? I dont want it on my record. I am 145 lbs and had one drink on an empty stomach about an hour prior. The officer, who was in the parking lot of the bar, followed me out of the parking lot to the 7/11next door to thebar. He approached me for a brake light issue as I got out of my car at 7-11 parking lot. Can a .07 stick? Can I get this dismissed? Do I have to hire an attorney? seems wrong I should have to pay to dismiss a charge when under legal limit.

Can an officer enter, possess and operate your vehicle without your consent.
Upon deciding to arrest me and placing in the patrol car, the officer told my friend to exit my vehicle and then the officer took possession of my vehicle and drove my car to another point in the parking lot to move it to a new space. He would not allow my sober passenger to move the car and did not attempt to have it towed. He simply took my keys, entered my car and operated my vehicle without my permission or without asking for my permission. I never authorized him to enter my vehicle or to take possession of and/or operate my vehicle at any time. Was he within riights to do this rather than having my friend move the car, leave it there or have it towed?
It is common for the police to do this. It is even more common for them to make your passenger get out and then have...
What if i change my mind the day after accepting a plea deal on a 1st offense dui bac(.08) and decide for court to hear the case
3-14-17 I accepted a plea deal with my lawyer and the prosecutor for a 1st offense dui (bac .08) because of pressure from my lawyer. I have changed my mind today and want the court to hear the case, can i do that? It was a police checkpoint, i was very cooperative and completely honest. The lawyer said the officer lobbied to have the charge reduced and the prosecutor refused. The outcome was 1 year suspension of license, Ignition interlock device, asap program, 90 days jail with 90 days suspended and 3 years probation, and $500 fine with $250 suspended. My lawyer said even if were reduced to a less charge, i would still have to do all the programs(asap, ignition interlock device) and the judge could also impose the jail time if we go to court.
You would have to file a motion immediately to allow rhetoric withdrawal of your guilty plea and have it reset for...
Appeal DUI?
Hello, I was arrested for a DUI. I followed legal advice and entered a plea deal but am not certain I was given the best counsel. I had 2.5 beers, waited 1.5 hours to drive. I made a wrong turn because the tint on my car is dark and I couldn’t see the divider in a poorly lit area. I was pulled over and did not know I didn’t have to blow for the street test. Trooper did not give me an option. He also did not tell me what I blew on the street until later on but what he told me I blew (.0865) and what he put on paperwork (.092) is quite different. Trooper said I failed field sobriety tests too but both my lawyer and I feel/felt otherwise. However because bac machine at station was calibrated correctly and I blew .12 and there was probable cause to pull me over and no video of field tests, he said I had no case. This is my first offense and a clean driving record with no background. I am being told by friends and family to appeal. Do I have a case?
You cannot appeal a plea of guilty. By entering into such a deal you admitted to having driven while under the...
