Is an open container enough evidence to convict a DUI
I recently crashed my car, I'm not sure if I fell asleep but I was knocked unconscious. When I woke up , I was surrounded by paramedics who took me to the hospital. The hospital held me for 6 hours then realeased me. At no point did a police officer talk to me , so there was no failed sobriety or b.a.c. Test given. Also I was not read my Miranda rights. Today I received two letters from court saying I'm charged with DUI and open container , and the other letter charging me with reckless driving. I feel I have a case. What do you think ?

Trouble getting my license back after not guilty dui finding.
I was found not guilty of dui back in August. I did refuse a breathalyzer. The judge was going to take the request for license re-in statement under advisement. After not hearing anything for a month, my lawyer sent a letter to the court for an update. My lawyer got a call at the beginning of October from the clerk saying that the judge was still considering it, and would let us now in a couple of weeks. It is now the end of November and have not heard anything. My lawyer doesn't want to follow up again because he feels that if we do, the judge will get annoyed and refuse the request. Does this sound right? Do I have any other options? I have been without my license now for almost a year. This would have been my second offense if I was found guilty. Thanks.

I made an illegal u turn in front of a school (in massachusetts) where I was trying to pick up the child I am in charge of
The crossing guard was telling me I cd not do that but I ignored her. I could not proceed further down the road and turn around in a different place without missing the pick up time. After I got out of the car and picked up my ward, when I got back in the car to drive off, I observed her taking down my license plate. I hv a clean driving record, but I am very worried, bec she was saying there are children around and what I was doing was dangerous. I was not actually moving during most of the incident, as I was motioning to another parent in a car cd she move up farther so that I cd do a three point turn into the space behind her, then have enough space to park right behind her. I was careful of my surroundings at all times and I was in the street some distance from the crosswalk - at least 1/2 block. but cross guard was so upset w me she had walked up to where I was. I hv often (safely) made these illegal turns and she has often yelled at me for them, which is probably why she was fed up and decided to report me. I did not really think about the fact that I cd be in trouble bec of the school environment and safety issue. Very worried now!!!!
Duplicate question. Consulting with a local attorney will relieve your worry,
How do FBI agents get away with getting people for DUI's when they have no means to equipment to monitor subject?
Friend is about to get a DUI from the Feds. Isn't this some kind of set up if they are watching the person and person is a law abiding citizen? Also, what type of laws come into play regarding time? Seems a bit unfair to me that you can get a DUI without knowing and then maybe get a second one because they are setting you up for the worst. Do not tell me this is untrue. I know it to be true.
