My dui citation isn't in the system? Did I actually get charged?
I recieved a citation for a dui December 3rd, 2016 (over two and a half months ago) and it is still not in the system. When I call in they say there's no record of it (so I also have no idea how much my fine is), and I have yet to receive my court date. I was with my boyfriend and he got an underage drinking ticket at the same time but that was in the system within 10 days. Is this long a normal time frame? Or did my ticket get lost or something? I would just like to know what exactly should I do in this situation, and if I'm actually going to get charged.
It's hard to say. It's possible that the prosecutor just hasn't filed the charges against you yet. Did they do a blood...

Can I be found guilty of DUI if I blew a .06 at the station? Pulled over for improper turn.
Pulled over for improper turn. Blew .06 at station and still charged with DUI. Officer stated I put my foot down during one leg stand. Aside putting foot down twice I performed quite normally on the field sobriety test. Prosecutor offered Careless driving which I declined. Will any prosecutor pursue this to trial? ( or would judge even let it go to trial)? Thanks.
Yes it's possible. Even if you're under .08, the state can still try to prove that you were under the influence. Yes...
Can I request a continuance after pleading guilty?
I was drinking and driving and totalled a parked car. I only blew a .08 and this is my second dui, the first was in 2014. I'm not sure if I should plea guilty and talk to the prosecutor myself, but if I do and things aren't looking good am I then able to request a continuous and then find legal representation
If you totaled a parked car, I would contact legal representation. I would not make a plea or make any other statements...
