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

Out of State DUI
I have a CDL A license in California, and I got a DUI in Nevada November of last year. Its August of this year and my license has never been suspended. My understanding is that my criminal case and my DMV case are 2 separate cases. My question is should I be worried that my license will get suspended at some arbitrary point in the future?
Of course you should be worried you license will be suspended at some point in the future. What happened with the...
What is the legal effect if my blood was drawn 3 hours after I was in an accident for DUI
I was reading that this time lag will create a problem for the DA or the DMV. Is that true?
It might create a "problem" but then again, maybe not. Quit reading and get into an attorney's office for an actual...
Will a 2nd dui offense (under age drinking) be found out by my school (college)?
This is my second duo without any accident or traffic violations. I was pulled over for suspicion. I was pulled over in LA county for crossing 3 lanes because I almost missed the exit and was pulled over. I passed all sobriety tests, just blew a .14. I leave for school in Washington in 3 weeks right after my court date but I am trying to see if I can do work release and driving programs in Washington without serving jail time without my university finding out. I also turn 21 in a week and a half.
We have no idea if your school will find out. Anything is possible. Your primary focus should be hiring a lawyer to...
Can a governor pardon be given for a dui that happen 2 yrs ago?
Had a dui 2 yrs ago and I'm trying to get my DUI expunge plus I heard that if you get a pardon you can still serve jury duty. How long is the process to get expunge? Will employers realize I had a DUI after I expunge it?
Misdemeanor convictions don't have any impact on eligibility for jury service. A pardon seems unlikely.
