Blew a .086 on a field test and was taken in for blood test then released, what are my options?
Was driving back from a friend's house and was flagged for speeding. (not radared but based on cop's estimation). Committed the two big no no's unfortunately, and told the cop i had a beer and submitted to the field test and breathalyzer twice (blew a ,086). I agreed to be taken to the hospital to get a blood test and was allowed to be picked up and taken home instead of taken to jail. What should be my next steps as to fighting this case (kind of dug myself a hole) and if my blood test come back under ,08 will they help my case at all? Will this blood test result be available to me or be released? Thanks in advance for any advice.

Will I need an SR-22 if my statute of limitations has been exceeded to get my license back in the state of California?
I was charged with a misdemeanor DUI (not sure what my BAC was) as a minor, 3 days before my 18th birthday. It has been approximately a year and my case hasn't been filed. A year passed 8 days ago. Will I need an SR-22 from my insurance company? Thanks

Looking for legal advise regarding 2008 minor D.U.I in LA with TX id. Didn't take D.U.I class and now its been over 7 yrs.
At the time of incident, I still had TX license. Cop did not detain me or take my out of state id. After appearing in court and paying fines and etc. I was given a 1 yr suspension and dui classes. Its been 7 years since this incident yet i haven't taken dui classes. I can't look up my record in LA because i do not have a CA identification number and was given a special reference number which does not exist when looking up driving record status. Is the DUI class necessary after so much time has passed and i have been in good standing to date? I was told mandatory actions unit has a way to waive the class but wasn't advised on how to proceed by dmv worker. Please advise

I think I was wrongly convicted by a jury of first time misdemeanor DUI this past week. its just not fair
I was just found guilty on the B count by a jury in Compton court. I learned a lot during that trial, including how a lot of factors could affect breath instruments. Mental impairment always comes first, before physical impairment, in a DUI case. I was pulled over at 2:20 am. I blew a .12 on the PAS and .10 at the station an hour later. I had just eaten greasy and spicy street tacos, the police officer claimed he saw an object dangling from my rear view mirror a football field away, and saw me doing 35 in 25 zone (yeah right). My lawyer even went through step by step on a chart with the officer, and I was near perfect on all FST (perfect on mental part). I have GERD, and we were not allowed to say so during trial (discovery problem I think). Officer also testified I was veryAlert and aware
You haven't asked a question. Your attorney can file a motion for a new trial and/or you can appeal.
D.U.I. Citation, no previous traffic or criminal violations on record. What are the most likely outcomes (either good or bad)?
On 9/25, 3 A.M. I totaled my car against a curb. Thankfully, no one was around & no property was damaged. I stepped out of the car, sat on a bench to call AAA when three squad cars pulled up. Asked how many drinks I had that evening to which I replied "none", then I was asked to walk in a straight line (I did well) as well as to do breathalyzer test... wasn't told BAC. No warning was provided regarding how such action (or the failure to comply) might affect me. I was not told that I was being arrested, but was informed that I would be taken to the station. I was cuffed, taken in, and asked to take an additional breathalyzer test. Again, not told the level. I was put into a cell until 11 AM until a last breath test when I was released. Citation reads: O/R 23152 (A) M 23152 (A) M 0.08 pct
It is clear from the citation that you have been charged with DUI. The citation refers to section 23152 of the CA...
