I got a DUI, it was for prescription medications. Do I have any chance of getting it thrown out if I have a valid prescription?
I am on valid prescriptions for pain and anxiety, have been for over 10 years will valid prescription change anything. I'm not sure what happened that night somehow I drove into a light post,I called the cops and agreed to do blood test. Am I able to get those results myself or do I need an attorney to do so? Second, do results show "positive" or "negative" or are their actual levels? I do not have lots of money for an attorney at this time. I am a single mom, on disability from work. I can't afford to have my license suspended for 6 months. In outpatient treatment, psychiatrist monthly, &weekly therapy appointments, then back to work eventually. Will it look better if I do NA meetings, get treatment? Do the offer restricted driving permits? Do I need to hire a lawyer for best outcome, or will a public defender be able to help with my case? Any advice I get from attorneys on this website will be greatly appreciated. If you do offer a free consult please leave me your information so we can set up a consult, if not free than what the cost would be for that consult. This accident occurred in Kane County, and I live in Kane county and have court October 19. Thank you in advance.
