Dui Refusal
I was charged for a refusal by DMV for not completing the breath test even if one of the blows on the print was .09 On the other hand the DA is only charging me for dui with BAC of .09 when Title 17 was not even followed. Can you suppress that .09? and if they decide to bring up the refusal can you challenge that the .09 reading proofs that the test took place? even if the officer aborted the breath test too early just so he can do a blood test instead and subject refused due to abnormal bleeding? Police officer entered the wrong time into the alcotest 9510 as the starting point of the observation but at that time we hadnt arrived to the station yet. Btw I have the police station videos as proof of all these discrepances. Pls Advice. Thank you.
Title 17 is not applicable in the court; it is only applicable in an administrative hearing such as a DUI admin per se...

Arrested for DUI (temazepam)
Live in California. My case is a bit different. I have a prescription for temazepam, which I take by putting into a water bottle and labeling X on it. My friend drank this water bottle, she was unaware of its content, and got sick. I took care of her for 7 hours till she said she was fine. I then let her drive home and she got into a minor fender bender accident, no one was hurt. A police officer showed up and arrested her for suspicion of DUI. I didn't realize she took my medication till the next day when my bottle was missing. Will she get a DUI? Can I help her out in any way? Will I end up going to jail for this?

DUI speeding and chemical test refusal.
Currently hired an attorney for Dmv hearing but pretty much told me there's no defense. Really? Obviously looking at different directions for hearing but here are the details. Pulled over for speeds I won't mention but was excessive. I blew into road side breathalyzer blew a .108 but refused chemical test, soon arrested. There were multiple things that were exaggerated on police report as well. I have questions as far as how hard would it be to reduce these charges? Another is when is tape and audio released? Is this upon when I hire a lawyer for the actual case? There is also other things that could make a case but as always every case is unique. Really could use some guidance thanks.

Do I need a DUI attorney or Criminal attorney?
Had my first court appearance Nov. 18. 2015 in my hometown Bishop, CA. Where I was visiting at time of my arrest. Received a very nice judge who up called me up LAST after many other people with serious charges. He never asked me a plea simply said "get an attorney" my charges were very serious. Paperwork says Count 1 DUI, Count 2 twice over legal limit .015. I was not driving at the time, I was parked. However, my keys were in the ignition. I had 2 Highway patrol, Mr. Nibert who was very nice and the second not so nice. 1st officer made me take the breathlyzer 3 times, said I was not doing it correctly. I was VERY nervous as I've never had a DUI. I'm a 46 year old single mother two 2 youngs. I also wanted to ask should I get an attorney in Bishop, or here where I currently
