Can i be charged with DUI if i was sober?
I wrecked my truck while driving on a wet road, i was completely sober and truthful to the police.There was a slight odor of marijuana in my truck from smoking the day before and the cop claimed that it reeked as if i was just smoking or there was "a pound of weed in the truck".There was no marijuana in the truck and it was only a slight odor that others at the scene said they couldn't smell.I requested field sobriety test but the officer refused to give me one and offered me to take a dui or blood test so i went tor the test. on the way to the hospital the officer said they would check my HTC levels, yes he said HTC,and also told me that even if i wasnt high i would still most likely be charged with DUI anyway.He texted and drove the whole way there as well.What should i do?Im a minor.
Hire a lawyer. If you smoked weed the day prior you probably still had metabolites in your system. They can be...
I got busted for a DUI when a cop parked across the street from the methadone clinic followed me and lied on field sobriety test
I sent a couple of nasty emails to the police station saying how disgusted I was with the cops in our town. I never threatened them or anything. They knew I was a methadone clinic patient from a previous run-in with them 3 months prior to this incident. SO, what happened one week after my emails, the cop waited in his cruiser across from the clinic. He waited until I took my methadone at the clinic. I then drove out of the clinic's parking lot and he followed me and pulled me over for having a tinted license plate cover. He asked where I was coming from. {He KNEW where I was coming from because he sat there 50 feet away facing the entrance to the clinic) He purposely failed my sobriety test even though I passed it just so he could get a blood sample. He got an EASY DUI.How do I fight this?
You may have some suppression issues available for your defense. However, the case will not be resolved in this forum....
If you are pulled over and cop assumes you are drunk and places you in the car to take you for a blood test does he have to read
Does he have to read you your rights?
No, Miranda rights are not required.
Charged with DUI, reside in Pa and Ga... which state should I have a license for at sentencing?
I am a Ga resident who also has a resident in Pa before time of incident. With DUI charge, it was suggested I get a Pa license for sentencing. I accepted a first time offense deal in ARD. Awaiting sentencing but want to be sure my record will be clean. Am I better off to keep Pa license or go back to Ga license(not a compact state)?
This is serious and I would not go at it alone. Find a local attorney who will protect you and your rights. The...
I got an underage citation the other day but was not breathalyzed. He did an eye test and said i was drinking. Can i fight it?
I was at a concert the other day with a group of friends. I was not drinking or had any alcohol on my possession or around me. A cop walked passed me and continued to walk about ten to fifteen feet behind me when he called me over. I walked over and he picked up an open beer on the back tire of a truck and looked at me insinuating it was mine. I told him it was not mine, and he asked me to walk in front of everyone and follow the pen with my eyes. I've had 4 eye surgeries since i was three years old and also have signs of glaucoma, and when i strain my eyes certain directions my eyes jiggle. When the police officer noticed he asked if i was doing it on purpose. I told him no, and then he walked me over to his car where he wrote the underage citation saying i had alcohol on my breath.
The answer to your question is absolutely YES. The HGN test is a very poor test, but you will obviously be confronted...
