First, jail phone calls are typically recorded. It's really not smart for your friend to make any statements about the...
I got a DUI this year in Washington state. I am being charged as a 2nd DUI offender because WA state is treating my California Wet Reckless as a DUI. In CA state, a Wet Reckless is NOT considered a DUI. Is there any way I can use WA or CA state laws to prove that it is objectionable to count my CA Wet Reckless as a DUI in WA state? I am hoping to get my charge dropped to a 1st DUI offense. Thank you for your time.
hi, I really empathize with you.WHAT THIS REALLY BOILS DOWN TO IS HOW YOU WROTE YOUR GUILTY STATEMENT. You need to get...
I was arrested for my 1st DUI ever and my prosecutor is offering a reckless driving reduction. What penalties am I facing when charged with reckless in Washington State?
Do you have an attorney? The attorneys on this forum can give you a general answer, but you really need to sit down...
I was charged with a DUI. Took breath test and blood test. Blood came back with nothing bc the cop forgot to ask for which drug he wanted tested. Blew Breath test,came out 0.00. Cops states I was on drugs. Took alcohol/drug Assessment, no treatment and passed UA. Prosecutor still wants to charge with DUI and court appointed says I could get possibly driving reckless driving. Cop also lied and stated he gave me a ticket for not having insurance,never did. Have insurance and pay 6 months ahead each time. Witness are the ones that called in saying I was driving poorly and driving on the wrong side of the road,not true and back out of a driving and did a U turn. Can't do it,you either go right or left you can't do a u turn backing out of anywhere. I want to go to trial. what should I do? Thxs
Sounds like a very defensible case. Don't know how they prove a case with no alcohol nor tox results.
My house had a party and there was a noise complaint, so the police came and banged on my door and window and threatened to get a warrant and arrest everyone unless someone came out. I came out and talked to the officers and stayed on my front lawn the whole time. He told me we'd receive a noise violation. In the end we received a "disorderly conduct loud party" offense and I got "minor intoxicated in public". I was never drinking outside, and was only ever outside when the police demanded someone come out. Is that still "public"? What kind of punishment can I expect? (Will be 21 in less than a month).
There are a lot of variables and issues for Minor in Possession of Alcohol (MIP) including whether you were in a public...
Car wreck, rollover, rushed to hospital for emergency surgery. Can they say I agreed to or consented to the test while in and out of consciousness?
If you were taken to a hospital where there is no breath testing device, then the police would need a search warrant...
I received a DUI conviction 3.5 years ago (1st time) and its the only thing on my record. The judge told me that he would defer it with the stipulation being that I kept my nose clean for 5 years and after that time it would fall off of my record. I just received an HOV lane violation which is a moving violation in my state. Will that affect my deferral?
Unless the judge took the very unusual step of ordering that you have no civil traffic infractions you should be fine....
