WWhat would mitigate a DUI-D in the Commonwealth of Virginia?
I was taking my prescription medication and it reacted with a nausea medicine. I had never had a sudden reaction before and figured my 28 mile drive would be uneventful. However, this was not the case, the phenergan made me drowsy and I stopped at my local grocery store and was picking up something when a Deputy found me, arrested me and took me for a blood analysis (the toxicology results were below normal i.e. no abuse) Two days after i was admitted to the hospital with dehydration, pneumonia and low potassium levels. Would any of these factors show that the 'impairment' was accidental and should be reduced or nol prosed?
There are many defense issues for this case. Parking lot, legal medication, analysis normal, toxicologist required to...

How can you have a court date without and official ticket?
My wife received a summons for a DUI in Tazewell county Virginia on 5/26/17. She was the subject of a silver alert in North Carolina and a subject of a welfare check in Virginia. Both state police agencies were actively trying to locate her when the Tazewell Sheriffs located her. She passed a breathalyzer and they had her get blood work done.

What can I do to get my DUI reduced?
I had a panic attack while driving under the influence.. pulled over, got out and started walking. The passenger, more drunk than I, knocked on a near by house to borrow a phone to get help. Someone called the police. When I found my way back the cops were there and they searched me, did the roadside tests etc. I admitted I was the driver of the car which was parked near by. I didn't have the keys in my possession or anything. But I did admit it. The bac recorded in my paperwork was .11 I have no prior record and only 1 speeding ticket. Is there a possibility of getting this reduced?
