Could I be waiting to get a dui?
Was in a car accident about a month ago, it was my fault. I was taken to the emergency, but had no injuries. The other person was also not injured in any way. They did blood work and found that there was alcohol in my system. About an hr later, an officer came in and only gave me a traffic citation. My insurance company has since given me a rental car and increased my premium. I have already done the traffic school that was needed. Should I get ready to deal with a dui?
In my former life as a prosecutor, if there is a legal blood draw done you could be facing a future DUI and frequently...
Can I be charged with a DUI?
I was asleep in my vehicle in a parking lot, the deputy approached my vehicle and could not wake me up so called ems. Once they woke me up and brought me to the hospital they preceded to run blood and urin tests. Once testing was completed the hospital released me. There was no written citation that I received yet 8 months later the same deputy came to my home to verify my address stating that the state attorney was trying to get ahold of me.
There is a big difference between being charged with DUI, and having lots of defenses to the charge. The State can file...

Lawyer in a dui case
if your lawyer tells you to handle everything that has to do with losing a DUI case like DUI school, charity, and what not, is he preparing for a loss...I refused the breathalyzer and I believe if there is a video of this field sobriety test that I could at least get a dropped to a reckless.... if that was the case, I don't know if I should plead no contest or guilty for a lesser sentence
It sounds like your lawyer is asking you to do these things so it will show the State Attorney that you are taking this...
I was stopped for DUI. I don't drink or, do drugs. The State Troopers took my car to an impound lot and I was taken to jail.
When I got out of jail, I went to pick up my car at the impound lot. It was more than I could afford as,I had just paid bills.Then, I went into the hospital, When I got out, we went to pick it up. My lien holder had picked up. I didn't receive any type of call that they were doing this. I had made 2 years of payments. They said I would have to pay $7775.00 and, I only owed $6700. They sold my car at an auction for $3700. I received letter that I owed $4975 for the difference. They put it on my credit report as a repo. Linda
Sorry, for what happened to you, but I don't see a question.
