Does a blood sample for dui have to be stored in a certain manner
Blood sample was taken in Pa for suspected dui. almost two weeks later it is still at the police station in a cardboard box.. I am concerned that it will not be valid. Consulted an attorney he advised me that he can do nothing until I am charged. I am concerned that this sample will not be accurate. I WAS not under the influence of anything other than being tired. My eyes were red and that gave the office cause to give me a breathalyzer, which I refused and ask for a blood sample. I am concerned that my attorney is not being proactive on the blood sample. Should I find another attorney. I had a DUI in college 3 years ago. Stupid, I know but I did learn a very important lesson .
I am not aware of any rule or requirement that it must be stored in any particular way. If charges are file and the...
4years ago I was hit by a drunk driver head on and he had a rental car that was in his fathers name and insurance.
I have recently been informed my law firm cannot sue the rental car company of the car that hit me head on in a drunk driving case. The man driving committed suicide two years ago. The case has been pending for 4 years. My lawyer is getting very pushy and nasty towards me as I am losing faith and questioning why they did not know 4 years ago that they would not be able to sue the rental company. I am very confused and have many questions but I am strongly advised to sign the check portion of of the estate and then will have to sue my insurance company. I have so many questions for my lawyer but her main concern is that I sign this check that I am so reluctant to sign. I have a neck injury that I am still treating and a pinched nerve in my right arm.
Unfortunately, other attorneys are not able to give you advice because you are represented already. Also, with every...
DUI Charges
Got pulled over due to high beams on. Police officer turned around and followed me. As I came off the bridge he said that I touched the yellow line. I was looking for a radio station and I was also on a 2011 flood road that has not been fixed. Officer came to the car and smelled alcohol, yes I had 3 individuals in the car that had been drinking. Got a DUI. Does not have a BAC on record although during questioning I was placed on tape and had a panic attack and cried profusely on tape. An attorney said that it looked as if I was drunk crying. I wasn't I was having a panic attack. The officer did not ask if I needed any medical assistant left me sit there and basically hyperventilating and crying profusely. I was thinking of my children, what to become of the future. Scared of being there.
While a good deal is unclear from you wrote it appears you may have some valid defenses. You should not say anything...
Haven't gotten anything in the mail about my DUI yet?
I got pulled over for a DUI over a month ago. It showed in the local police reports in the newspaper, but I have not gotten anything in the mail for it yet. The officer told me to expect it within a week. However, it did not show in the police reports for a while after. When can I expect it in the mail?
It varies sometimes it can be a week, month, couple months, sometimes Imina come at all. Just have to be patient and...
Do I have a defense against these dui charges?
A few months ago i was driving and hit into a parked vehicle. I got out of my car and waited for police to show up. I blew a 0.0 on the breathalyzer, and my blood work came back clean. However I failed a field sobriety test. Is it worth trying to fight the charges or should I just plan on having to do the alcholol and drug classes and getting my license suspended?
You absolutely have a defense. If it's a first offense the penalties are rather mild. But you still have a DUI on your...
NY State DWI/DWAI Predicament. If DWI will be fired. Lives in New Jersey.
My sister received a DWI in NY State in June, She works for a large pharmaceutical in New Jersey, and her job is 85% travel. Without her license, her career is in the tubes. Yes, its always easier to say after the fact and realize the error of your ways.The question here is this lawyer suggested that he will have a better chance of pleading down the case to the DWAI, if her employer would provide a letter she would be fired if convicted. (There is no doubt she will be). However I work for a similar size company and I have a friend in HR who told me no ethical company will provide a written statement like that, regardless that she will lose her job. Before she lets the cat out of the bag to her employer, does this increase the chance of pleading down?
There are two issues here. One, you have posted your question with Pennsylvania as the jurisdiction, therefore only...
My DUI was due do a refusal in Mont.Co PA. No Needles!! Does ARD drug test because of refusals?all pprwrk say no treatment nded
Am deathly scared off needles that's why I refused and was also waiting for a breathalyser which never happened..I was designated driver the alcohol they smelled was from my friend, he was beyond messed up. I was eating chicken swerved a little over the line and got pulled over. Admitted to drinking a beer a few hrs before, did a FST and was told to walk a straight line on the crack of a sidewalk. II barely stepped out of line twice which wasnt really a reason to fail me many other family and family friend wjo are officers said. Also was asked to count 1-9..i counted 1-10. I have insomnia didnt sleep 2.5 nights before this happened. I was not intoxicated and it takes about an hour for one beer to be almost out of your system def. Under legal limjy. But apparently failed and booked.
I guess I am missing the question in all of this. If its a first time offense, no priors, you are most likely ARD...
