My friend was contacted by a police officer while in his running car passed out and eventually was charged with a DUI.
I'm no attorney, but I was doing some research. Under 60-6,196 Nebraska DUI states "It shall be unlawful for any person to operate or be in the actual physical control of any motor vehicle". He was obviously not in actual physical control of his motor vehicle. Does he have a case?
Being passed out in the front driver's seat is considered actual physical control. Having said that he still may have...
Will I have to serve jailtime for violation of probation/failure to appear?
I got a dui over a yr ago, lost my license for 6 months, fined $650 and placed on unsupervised probation for 9 months. I paid my fine and asked my attorney if there was anything else I had to do or if I needed to report to anyone for the probation. He told me no, I just pay my fine and I would get my license reinstated in Oct. Apparently I was supposed to take 3 required classes and report to the court that I had taken them. I never got this in writing. No idea where the classes are or when or even what they are. When my probation was up in march, they had no proof of these classes and set up a court date in may for violation of probation (I was never notified of any court date!!) And a warrant was issued because I obviously was not there. I got pulled over and arrested, I'm out on bond
Normally probation violations carry a realistic possibility of jail time. You should contact a local attorney to...
I got a DUI I was parked in a friends driveway passed out but my car was on. Just wondering if the charges will be any different
I had beendrinking but the car wasn't in motion and he really had no reason to stop except that my lights were on. He must of drove by a couple times and I still hadn't moved.
The theory behind the DUI charge is that you were "in control" of the vehicle. The keys were in the ignition, the...
2nd offense dui and willful wreckless driving.
My husband was arrested this morning for a second offense dui and willful wreckless driving. Was being pulled over for speeding, panicked because he had been drinking so he tried to run, lost control and hit a tree. His first dui was 7 years ago. He says one of the officers told him to get a good lawyer and it could be dropped to a first offense. Is that possible? What outcomes are we looking at? Is it possible to take the defensive driving class and get the wreckless driving reduced or dropped?
It would be best to talk directly with attorneys in your area. You can use the "Find a Lawyer" tab at the top of the...
Are cops able to get ahold of blood alcohol level tests without consent?
I received a MIC a few weeks ago. I was unconscious and not responding so they sent me to the hospital. The next day I received a ticket for MIP/MIC but they didn't breathalyze me. They took my blood levels from the hospital. I just wanna know if the cops are able to get ahold of this information?
In Michigan, the answer would be yes. I would not be surprised if Nebraska had similar provisions. You should consult a...
Driving under revocation due to a previous dui.
so I'm trying to find some good advice/consultations. I got pulled over for driving under revocation June 8th due to a dui I got in February and I was eligible to get an interlock permit right away. I went through the steps to get the divice installed and going through probation but I hadn't got my letter in the mail with the permit yet. Well turns out it was sent to the wrong address, my old one out of state. So I called the dmv and they said just go to the nearest dmv and I can receive my ignition interlock permit. So as I was heading to the dmv I got pulled over for a freaking sticker in my window. I believe they were profiling cause I drive a red bmw. But I had to sit a day in jail until I got bailed out 750 dollars later and being accused of driving under revocation. Any advice helps.
Hard ro answer without additional information. Was your license out of state when you got the first one? Why revocation...
2 Officers are saying I was past out behind the wheel at any interaction they were trying to wake me up yet the lightsweren't on
I was not past out they said in the police report that they were trying to wake me up. when I came too I let my foot off the brake and costed across the interaction. when I got to the other side of the street I gased it and drove off then they turned there lights on and pulled me over they said in the police report they were called to do a walfar check on a car stopped at and interaction with 2 males pasted out in it ...if they would have pull behind me isent it a law that there lights be on ??? I don't understand none of this...it makes since ..so me and my friend pull up to a interaction with the car still in drive and both just pass out NO then when the Officer's " try to wake us up " there no lights no sirens as soon as I seen lights I pulled over I neverhadanyothercontactwiththem
If you were charged, then best bet is to retain a local criminal lawyer to fight it.
