Is this DUI facially insufficient?
I know a girl who was charged with a third offense DUI when in fact she has never had any priors. She described the cop as very overzealous. I was wondering if she could have the charges dismissed due to this "error" on the part of the police or DA?

I was convicted of DUI (2nd offense) and was sentenced to from 180 days to 18 months of incarceration that began on 3/19/2012 . I was released from jail on 9/17/2012 and am now on probation. Can I file to be released from probation early? I have completed all requirements except for a few hours of community service and some of the fines. These can be taken care of within a few weeks.
You should contact your attorney. I do not believe that you can "file something" to alter the court approved terms....
I wasnt pulled over, but arrested for a dui anyway
officer said i high beamed, he pulled up behind me after my passenger and i were out of the car walking toward the door to go inside, he called me over with "hey you, come here". the case has gone to sentencing, i have 10 days to pull my plea, my lawyer hasnt fought for me nor explains anything to me. the officer lied on the stand and most his testimony was "i dont recall' he doesnt recall if he checked my license and registration, etc. i plead guilty because the DA and judge agreed to 45 jail, 45 house arrest, at sentencing i got 60/60 and the 60 house arrest was questionable based on probations paperwork which that was false as well. (i had a dui 4 yrs ago, ARD) my lawyer hasnt done a thing to help me, doesnt even return my calls. should i pull plea and go with a jury trial?

I am pending admittance into the ARD program. I blew a .185. I went to the CRN and had to take a urine test which I know I failed and also answer the questionaire. They called me in again to take another urine test a month later. I also know I will fail this one. My question is I was told that this will determine how long I will be on the ARD program. Why are they continuing to test me and if I fail them can they send me to jail? I thought that until they start my ARD program I am not violating anything? Thank you.
The CRN is normally done after a conviction or admission into ARD or DDAP. If you are not yet admitted, it is a factor...
