Do the police have to observe u 20 mins before they give u a breathalyzer test or is just in effect at the jail.
When I got pulled over the officer had me do field sobriety tests and breathalyzer. I have acid reflux and it was acting up. He did not observe me for 20 mins. I don't think the jail did either but I can't prove that because their video was not working that night. The only thing the officer had on me is that breathalyzer he has already stated I wasn't speeding, I swerved once but did not leave my side of the road.
Yes--the person performing the breathalyzer (whether at the jail or your arresting officer)...must observe you for 20...
Why would someone be aloud to have 3 pretrial conferences in a DUI case in KY involving drugs?
Our sons mother, whom might I add stays in trouble with the law, was arrested for driving under the influence in KY after wrecking her vehicle. She was arrested on drug use according to the citation. Her pretrial conference has been scheduled 3 times but we do not know details. She abuses prescription medications so we are wondering if maybe she is pleading not guilty and they are giving her time to come up with the scripts. I'm just curious how many times Greenville, KY will give her and if convicted what might happen because we are in a custody battle in TN and have a trial where she is facing up to 70 days jail time for contempt and we are fighting to gain primary custody of the child. We have an attorney here in tn but not sure what the rules are in KY as far as the DUI.
The number of pretrial conferences in a case vary based on a numerous factors. It may be that they are waiting of the...
Can I have an old DUI expunged while facing a new DUI?
I have had 3 DUIs over 5 years old and recently just got another DUI and wanted to know if I could have old DUI expunged while this current DUI case is pending.
That's very doubtful, but speak to a local attorney and find out. Usually, by the time you hit 3 DUIs you're in way...
If you plead not guilty to a DUI and have to go to trial, is jail time the likely punishment if found guilty in KY?
I got a DUI last September and pleaded not guilty at my arraignment. My pre-trial conference is scheduled for a couple of weeks. I don't plan on taking a plea deal, so if I'm found guilty, will jail time be the likely punishment?
It's impossible to know without knowing more facts. Regardless, you do not want to go to trial (or likely enter a plea)...
Missing court ordered alcohol classes in Kentucky?
My son received his 2nd DUI in less than 5 years in KY. He was court ordered to attend weekly alcohol classes. He went to 4 of them but he missed 2 weeks in a row of classes. (he missed the classes because his job scheduled him to work, and he had to work or lose his job). He needs the job to pay for the classes. He went to court and received a new court date about missing the court ordered classes. What can happen to him?
Your son should get a lawyer to talk to the prosecutor and explain the reason your son missed his classes. Because your...
