How long does the police have after an accident to test you or draw blood for a DUI charge
I was involved in a one vehicle accident where I rolled my truck. I was taken to the hospital via ambulance. After several CT scans some shots and being on a backboard for approximately 4 hrs a police officer asked me to sign a consent form for a blood draw. Then came back with a DUI citation listing no back level on it. Stating that it would tack some time to get the results back. Is this standard? This I don't feel is right due t the time duration and does not say anything about the bac at the time of the accident
A test taken more than three hours after the time of driving is neither automatically admissible nor presumed to...

Can I get my DUI case thrown out?
Hello I was recently arrested for my 3rd OWI. I’m wondering if I have a case to get it thrown out and whether I would need a private attorney or if a public defender would work in my situation. I was pulled over in the side of the highway I was in the passenger seat. The car was out of gas so it could be operated even if I wanted to. The keys were not in the ignition they were somewhere on the floor. Before the cop got there I drank from a bottle I had in my car so there is no way to know if an accurate bac level if I was even driving. What I feel right now is it innocent until they can prove I’m guilty. I gave the cops a story about a friend driving who ran away which they assume is false but if they can’t prove I was driving do I have a case? Also even if I was driving the fact that I drank in the passenger side makes the blood test I took pointless because even if I was driving there’s no way to know what my bac was. Just wondering if I have a case and should fight it. Could a pd get me a plea deal like reckless driving and open ibtoxicant to make the dui go away. I can’t survive living through a 3rd OwI

Can my dui be dismissed ?
Officer sent letter in mail stating that he had voided my dui citiation because the ‘citation was issued in error’ because he initially put 346.63(2) then changed it to 346.63(2)(a)(3) after the blood test came back. Thank you
Not only is this not a reason to dismiss the case, it is required by law for the citation to be amended when the test...
