DUI, leaving scene, property damage
I had a BAC of .31 last night. I don't remember hitting a parked car, but apparently somebody followed me home and called the police. The police entered my house where I live with my cousins. They took me from my room and brought me to jail. I blew .31 at my house and then .23 at the jail. This is my first offense. I've never been arrested. What can I expect in Indiana? I realize that I need help, but I'm 21 years old and in college and I really can't afford prison. My parents are hiring a lawyer.
allow your parents to hire the lawyer and listen to the advice that they give you. good luck
If I was already sentenced is there anything I can do to change the sentencing?
I was given a DUI for having marijuana in my system while driving. I was originally pulled over for rolling through the stop sign, cop said he smelled weed in my car, so and so forth. Had to sit in jail. Got a court date. Got sentenced to 40 hours comm service and Evaluation @ A&D. Is there anything I can do to get this dismissed or something? I really wasn't intoxicated while driving and I think having to through the whole jailing process was enough time wasted for all of this. I don't want to make it sound like money is an issue but I have no plans on paying them the amounts I owe in court costs.. It's like throwing money away. What are my options and best outcome of the situation?

Can I be accused of rape when I was intoxicated?
So I was intoxicated over at another person's house but they were intoxicated too but they started to fall unconscious and I didn't realize they were until a bit afterwards so I stopped but I didn't have sex with them. They found specimen inside of them though. Idk what to do bc I wasn't thinking bout it bc I was impaired from the drugs. I didn't have intentions in having sex either before I arrived there sober. I just went over to party with them, nothing more. I never committed a crime before this either and I'm young with a good background. And I already have the love of my life. I'm starting to develop mental problems bc of this and me thinking bout my future. What can I do and will the prosecutor go through with it?
I would not post anything else on any public forums and immediately hire an attorney or ask for a public defender.
DUI but not pulled over?
I was arrested for a DUI (1st time for me) while I was outside of my car but was followed for a brief period. I failed the breathalyzer but had also just thrown up right before the test, which I've read would alter the test. In addition, my Miranda Rights were never given to me, my car was never looked at and my friends were not interviewed. Do I have a shot of getting this dismissed?
People frequently ask about getting a case dismissed without giving anywhere near the facts that we need to provide an...
