I need my dui reduced to reckless driving
I blew .14 Went to my first hearing and the prosecutor offered me the min fine and only on day in jail I went for my alcohol assessment me I was told I had 0 of the 11 triggers and was told I need to go to just one 8 hour class. I did not hit anyone or anything. I got caught swerving and speeding. What is the likelihood of getting this reduced to reckless driving? What do I need to do to make that happen?
The only way for a reduction to occur is to be represented by an experienced DUI defense attorney who will be able to...
How to find the best DUI representation
Speeding, was pulled over, was offered to walk the line. Due to medical condition and road conditions I explained that no time could I walk a straight line, he then administered an eye test. I informed him the was too bright and directly in my sight so it was hard to see the pen the whole time ( upon speaking to an eye doctor I was told this is called bleaching in the eyes and that most wouldn't be able to see the pen that great) he then said true around under arrest for DUI. I was taken in and held before they gave me a breathalyzer, never told me what I blew and was held for almost 44 hrs before being bailed out. Curios what my outcome looks like
It's impossible to assess what's going to happen here. Do your research. Your situation isn't uncommon whatsoever. It's...
Duii in Oregon with Washington license questions
I got my 1st duii this last weekend while in southern Oregon for work (I was not on the job at the time of duii). I have a regular Washington drivers license. They took me in where I blew a .14 on the meter so they had to hold me. I spent several hours in jail and was bailed out for $750. I am hoping for deferment if possible. The questions I have are as follows. 1. Is there anything I have to do before the 1st court appearence to try and get a deferment? Anyone I should contact besides a outside lawyer. 2. If I do get deferment how would I be able to drive in Washington and Oregon if I am hearing my license may be suspended in both states(WA hears of Oregon state suspension and follows suit)? My job is to drive to Oregon for work 99% of the time. 3. I seen a couple threads where people mentioned a "Administrative hearing ". I tried searching it for duii and it related but could not find much. 4. Any advice also? I know I messed up and I was literally a block and a half away from my hotel. I didn't drink much before this and I think this just sealed the deal on me quitting. Thank you in advance for any and all information.

What are my options or best possible outcomes? DUI blood test came back with .16
I'm a 31 year old female, single mother of 2. This is my first offense with no prior history except for a speeding ticket about 5 years ago and one when i was 16 (just got my license). When the officer asked me if i'll be willing to take a breathalyzer i said no ( not sure why) my car got impounded, handcuffs were put on and i was taking to a state patrol location where i still took the breathalyzer that came back at .16 and answered some questions before they called the cab and sent me home. I don't know how severe the outcome can be, and what my options are. I can't have DUI show up on my record but i don't even know if this is an option. Any advice or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
You were correct in refusing the breathalyzer but they you caved. You need to be contacting local DUI attorneys who...
I recently got a DUI for my first offense ever. I blew a .13, is it possible to get this reduced?
I only drove roughly 200 feet, I was parked behind the bar and pulled around the road to the front of the bar In the direction of home. The road happen to be a one way, that I couldn't see because there was new construction building being built with fencing around the perimeter and something blocking the sign and there was no lights as well. I went down the next day and took pictures of the construction site and where I was parked and pulled over as well that I plan on showing the attorney I meet with. Do I have a chance at getting this reduced?
With the information you provided here there's no way to guess whether not the state has a good case or not period that...

If I got a DUII in Oregon, is my Washington license suspended in Washington?
I got a DUII in the state of Oregon and am currently in Diversion. I refused a breathalyzer test which means automatic revoked license in Oregon for a year. My actual drivers license is a Washington license and that is where I live as well. I just looked up my license number on the WA DMV site and it shows up as valid. Can I drive in Washington? If I happen to get pulled over in Washington and the police run my license, will it show up as valid and ok to drive or suspended?
If you haven't received the notice from DOL make sure your address is updated or you may be adding driving while...
