Time limit on taking me to court for a DUI if I bonded out and was arrested for something else and THEN remained in custody.
I was arrested for misdemeanor DUI. I bonded out. I was arrested before my arraignment for separate felonies. I was in jail for two years before I took a plea on the felony. I never attended ANY court proceeding related to the DUI and the DUI was NEVER mentioned or on any paperwork. I plead guilty to the DUI at the felony plea. Would I have grounds to appeal the DUI plea on the grounds of ineffective counsel because he said there was nothing that could be done? MY research is showing they went over many many times limits, but I am no lawyer and would like the opinion of one because I am sure it is not as simple as I believe it is-or else everyone would be lawyers.
The time limits usually apply to 1) time from offense when they have to bring the charge, and you were charged so that...
Can you be arrested at your home and given a DWI?
I was involved in a minor fender bender with no injuries the car I bumped had minor scratch and she waved that it was ok. I came home and had 3 drinks. After 30 -45 minutes a knock at my door proved to be police who said I was arrested for hit and run. Went to police station and officer ask if I had been drinking. I said yeah, what s wrong w that? The hit and run was cleared up but he gave me citation for DWI. He has on police report I was arrested however I was not fingerprinted, no mug shot. A friend picked me up after an hour. That s how long I spent at police station. I consented to breath test which reflected I had been drinking. Can they do that?
This is not unheard of, unfortunately. The most reliable way to fight it is to hire an attorney, who should file a...

Can I be fired if I refuse a drug test?
My company does testing from a generated list of 10 employees. If I am not on this list do I have to take the drug test? They were testing today and I was asked to be an alternate. I refused. Couldn't figure out why they would need me as an alternate when all the employees on the list were at work.
People are generally "at will" employees and can be terminated for any reason unless there is a specific law against it....
