When a blood test for BAC is taken for a DUI charge, do they test for other substances?
My job will be ok with alcohol, but if other items are listed in the report in case of a guilty charge or no contest that would be bad. If convicted of the DUI how much detail is provided on it or does it just state convicted of a DUI?
You're asking two questions here. First, if law enforcement suspected you if only being under the influence of alcohol,...

Can you use your suspended imposition on a second DUI (the first was 8 years ago) and have it include other charges incurred?
2nd dui, open container and a reckless driving charge . Will a suspended imposition include all charges or should I just use it for the dui?

Can I get my DUI dropped if I was sober but had marijuana in my system from the night before? ?
I was coming home from my girlfriends house and was really tired from working all day and I happens to be swerving a tad. I was pulled over and the officer assumed I was high when I wasn't. He did tests and I guess I failed a few but I know I was 100% sober. So I was then later arrested and they did blood and urine tests which I know is going to come back positive. I was just wondering how I can get the DUI dropped cause I know I was sober at the time. The cop didn't find anything in my car that related to marijuana at al and I blew zeros twice. So I'm just wondering how I can get a DUI from that. Thank you for reading my into my situation.
Whether charges get reduced or dismissed is typically up to the prosecutor. You absolutely need an attorney to...
Should I take my dui case to trial considering my circumstances?
I was told I took a klonopin, later that day I got pulled over and I failed my soberiety tests (not the breathalyzer I don't drink) i told the cop I had taken a klonopin he took me to jail for a dui. The next day I got out and I found out it wasn't a klonopin that I took, it wasn't a prescription drug. My blood tests came back clean but I am still getting charged with a dui. They offered me a plea of 180 days 160 suspended but I don't want to take it I don't want this on my record period. I DO have a record and I am on parole if that changes anything.
You need an attorney if you don’t already have one. An attorney can analyze your case entirely of your options. You...
What's the difference between a wet reckless and a DUI? Should I try for this as a plea deal?
I'm not sure if SD allows wet reckless, but it's my 1st DUI and I am trying very hard to get into a medical program and I would literally do months in jail if it ment getting it reduced from the DUI charge.
South Dakota doesn’t have a wet reckless, although it does have reckless driving. Sometimes the prosecution will...
