What is DWI with Drugs and refusal to blood test ?what are the odds of beating it.
My son is charged with DWI Drugs and refusal to take a blood test. He wrecked his car and I was there. He was not under the influence of alcohol, he blew 0 and they searched his car and found nothing. He had gotten stitches that day in his knee. they came out in the wreck. He could not walk the line and he has a condition in which his pupils stay large and he was taken to jail. I want to know if this is proper and what his chances are of being found not guilty or lesser charge. He said he was bright lighted and something hit his windshield. His windshield was shattered at the rearview mirror. The state trooper said he grabbed it when he wrecked.

They charged me with a 3rd dui & I only have one conviction could the case have been dropped on those grounds before I agreed?
I have been charged with a 3rd dui in Arkansas. I currently have a public defender. but I have only had one dui conviction in the past 13 years. Arkansas has a 5 year wash out. my public defender told the district attorney prosecuting the case that and came and asked me if it was ok if they changed it to a second offence. I said ok I guess. my thinking was a second is better than a third. now I wonder if I made a mistake.
I almost hate to answer this because I don't want to undermine your attorney. But if what you have said here is true,...
