Long story short. I was sitting behind the wheel but my girlfriend had taken the keys to insure that I wouldn't start driving. I had drank more than my limit and we both knew it wasn't safe or advisable for me to continue driving so we had parked at a Safeway parking lot. We had been parked for an hour when a patrolman approached us and asked us about a stranger that had walked up to us earlier. An argument ensued and he said I would need to take a DWI test. I refused because when he walked up, I wasn't driving and the keys weren't in the ignition. I spent the night in jail. Now I am waiting to go to court for aggravated DWI. Have an appointment to talk to an attorney soon.

We are assigned a US Attorney(federal land accident). The attorney is free of charge, but we are afraid the attorney will not be able to help like a private attorney. The federal criminal investigator already collected evidence, interviewed witnesses, family members and visited him in the hospital 2 times. He has not been charged, but he will be taken into custody as soon as he is medically discharged. He does not have any prior records, he only has a medical record showing multiple admits for mental instability (depression,suicidal ideation,long chronic medical history). After sentencing, if found guilty. Can we appeal the case? What are the options?
You need to speak to your lawyer about these issues. Even more importantly, you should not place any further posts on...
I was convicted of dwi first offense in January 2005. My license was revoked for one year but I never obtained an ignition interlock in order to have my license reinstated and it's been revoked ever since. It's been more than 9 years and I have not been convicted of another dwi/dui since. Am I able to just reinstate my license like normal since it's been so long? Thanks
