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.
Yes, you can be convicted of DUI / DWI in Virginia even though your breath alcohol test result was 0.07. There are...
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 can I do to contest a DUI charge in Virginia?
I submitted to FSTs and roadside breath. Refused breath/blood at station. Transported to the hospital after having an anxiety attack. I am also in the military and facing several issues as well.
You can retain an attorney. It's futile trying to do anything on your own. If you knew the law you wouldn't have...
Legal Liability DUI - post separation
My wife's a drunk. She hasnt had a DUI yet, but drinks and drives all the time. I used to take her keys away and lock them in the safe on a regular basis while we were together. During the 6 years we were together I think she was hospitalized for falling down the stairs twice and for alcohol detox with DTs 3 times (Or something like that, I lost count). Now that we're getting separated and I've found a place to stay, I kept her keys because I feel that I would still be liable if I let her drive. Is that correct? Can I address this in a separation agreement or do we need to re-title the cars and re-do the loan first? What if she gets a rental car on her own credit card?
Are you talking about civil or criminal liability? If you are this concerned then I suggest that you get into a...
I have an interlock installed, why I am getting the camera installed?
I've had my interlock device installed in my car for almost 6 months with no violations or missed tests. I received a call from the interlock company that my calibration appt has been changed due to camera installation. Why after all this time am I getting it now? I received a letter from my asap office that my compliance period is over soon.
The law now requires cameras in interlock devices.
Will I serve my full 10 days in jail?
I was convicted of DWI and driving on a suspended. Before I was able to receive my restricted license I got another driving on a suspended. My lawyer was able to get me 30 days. 20 suspended. So 10 days. I wasn't arrested for the 2nd driving on a suspended. I am curious if I have the possibility of being released early so I can miss less work.
This is an inquiry that should be directed to your attorney. Unless there is a mandatory minimum as part of the...
If a cop doesn't give you a DUI at the scene or inform you of your BAC or results of your other tests, what should I do?
I was given a reckless driving and possession of alcohol ticket. I am 19 and my parents don't know that I was drinking while driving. I have been told my BAC will be brought up in court, but I wasn't given it. I was given other tests and wasn't told if I passed. I understand they tried to give me another chance by not charging me with a DUI, but can they still when I get to court. I have never had any prior charges with the law of any sort and have good grades and no accidents prior to this. I understand I deserve a punishment but would like to understand to what extent this could be. While the punishment does vary judge to judge, I was wondering if this will get taken off my record somehow since it is NOT a felony because they didn't charge me with a DUI.
Go ahead and tell your parents about this. They will help you hire a good lawyer. A conviction for this will stay on...
