Forgot to take dui class! help
So, its been a year since i have gotten a dui. and i have completely forgotten to take my dui class i was supposed to take within 3 months of my dui, and the idea of a warrant being out for my arrest is frightening me. i want to make this right. and i fear being punished for my extremely busy schedule being a functional member of society. what is the best way to go about this? can i go to the alcohol treatment center and just take the class? and if any problem comes up i can say i did complete the class? or do i need to go to the police and turn myself in for being really dumb? thanks

I recently just got arrested for a DUI. I passed my pbt with a .078
I was arrested after taking the PBT and I refused to take anymore sobriety tests. I was then arrested and searched. They found marijuana and a pipe in my car. Im just confused, I passed my PBT and I wasnt high but the cop got my for being "high" Is this possible to fight? I dont need a 2nd DUI when I passed.

Answered your other post with the same question. Check that out.
If I take the stand in my DUI case, can I respond to every Question from the prosecutor with the same answer?
Can I use the response, "I was neither intoxicated nor impaired on Sunday, Nov. 10, 2013 at 2:24 AM." Can I say that for every question? I don't see why not? Truth is blood test was .06, passed 2 FST on video, and displayed NO signs of impairment at all in jail booking room video either. Test was done 1 hour after arrest.
If what you're saying is accurate, you should hire an attorney. You may be able to avoid trial all together. If not,...
Can I sue for malicious prosecution?
I was charged with dui. prosecutor issued warrant for violating conditions of previous case- revocation of jail sentence. dui was dropped due to no prob. cause. I went to jail twice for a dui essentially. All 4 criteria are met for malicious prosecution. Can I sue?
Contact a lawyer in SD to discuss your case. In my state, Colorado, it is very difficult (nearly impossible) to sue a...
Refused Blood test for DUI. Results were .06. Case dismissed. Still lose license for refusal?
I was arrested for DUI. I refused the blood test because I am almost positive he had no probable cause to arrest other than the fact that I invoked my 5th Amend. right to refuse field tests. If a cop asks me about a bank robbery , and I say I don't know anything or don't answer, that gives him reason to believe or probable cause that I did it? Anyway they got a warrant. Results were .06. Will they take my license for refusal even when case was dismissed? Should I site McNeely case as a defense at Adm. hearing if there is one. Can the judge just decide to give my license back or is it out of her hands. How in the world can a state law say that if you exercise your 4th Amend. right, you will be in violation of the law? How can a cop have prob. cause to arrest with nothing but invoking 5th?
There are two separate laws.
