What steps should I take
I was recently charged with a dui. I just received a letter from the DMV that they are not suspending my license. Due to the fact that on the ticket the officer did not check a box if I passed, failed or denied the breath test. My ticket also doesn't show my blood alcohol level. Not sure what I should do next.
You should immediately set an office conference with a well-respected DUII lawyer. The initial conference is often free,...

How far off can a breathalyzer be?
Hi, I was recently pulled over and had a breathalyzer test, I came out .08 bac. Now on the sheet it has a control sample that came out .08 and the expected value was a .085, basically saying the machine was off by .005, do you think that would hold up in court?
That's actually an acceptable number for the control and doesn't mean the machine was off. It actually, weird as it may...

My wife has helped an ex get a car loan she is primary. He was arrested for dui and pcs meth and few other charges. Car was towed from scene. We are unable to afford to get car out of impound. Tow yard has informed us they will auction the car next month if we don't pick up car. What happens to the bank loan or my wife's credit report if car is sold at auction.

As a canadian and being charged with a dui and hit and run what kind of penalty am I looking at
First time in the United States of America, had a little too much to drink and I couldn't really trust anyone with my car, not know anybody at all I never been in this type of situation before and I'm stuck in Oregon with no money and clothing and tried to apply for a social security number. And because I am a native American but Canadian I told the US Canada border that I was just going to visit and I did not need a passport to enter the United States and my boyfriend now can not petition for me to become a resident. Would America extradite me back to Canada? I would really love to stay in the states with my boyfriend.
You need to get an attorney and preferably one who knows about immigration issues. You may in fact need two attorneys,...
I blew a 0.07 on a breathalyzer. Do you suggest a lawyer for the hearing? What are my chances of dismissal if I don't get one?
Legal breathalyzer limit is 0.08 in OR. I just got off a 16-hour shift and had 2 beers. I was dog-tired, not intoxicated, when I was given the sobriety tests. I have astigmatism so my eyes will jerk with a light directed at them. I also have ADHD so I have difficulty following multiple instructions so I failed the Walk-&-Turn test which is hard to pass even with no alcohol. If I arm myself with documentation of my 16-hour shift, astigmatism, and ADHD, what are my chances of getting my case dismissed at the hearing if I represented myself? I really can’t afford a lawyer and would like to slay this dragon at the onset. Do you have any other suggestions? Would you advise my writing a letter to the judge or DA? Thank you!

If I got arrested for duii when I was taking medications that were just given to me, am I liable?
I went to the dr to undergo a procedure. Things did not go according to plan. Instead of keeping me there, at the office for observation, the dr gave me four new medications, which I had never taken. I went home, took the medications, & woke up in jail. I had been arrested for DUII. I don't remember anything, & the doctor has told me that they spoke to me while I was under the influence, but I don't remember any of it. The doctor said that I said I wasn't doing well, to say the least. I don't know how I ended up driving, or how I ended up in jail. This doctor barely cares, & the procedure, it seems, is mostly to make money. Had I never went to this doctor, none of this would have happened.
Yes. DUII is a 'strict liability' crime, meaning that your state of mind and intentions - whether you meant to do it -...
