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.
Be sure you (or better still your newly retained attorney) contact the DMV within 10 days of your arrest to request an...
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
Even though there hasn't been a case filed in court you still have the DMV to contend with. I would need more...
Would I be able to qualify for DACA, if I get my DUI expunged?
In 2010 I got my First and only DUI, I paid my fines and did all that was required by the Court in the state of California. I have a high school diploma and have been here since I was 6.
Congratulations on taking care of everything. While we could assist in the filing of the Petition for Dismissal per PC...
I've had 2 bench warrants for dui and I didn't go to court , both are misdemeanors its been 2 years since it happened I just never went to court if I go with an attorney can I get detained.
We've answered your question before in a slightly similar form. You could be remanded.
Hire an attorney? Odds of winning dmv hearing?
Was arrested for 1st dui, breath test .11 and retested at station breath results .12. Went to court for initial court date. Police Paperwork hasn't been submitted yet. Should I hire an attorney? DMV hearing is in 2 weeks. Trying to avoid a double suspension. Odds of winning dmv hearing? Help I'm very overwhelmed.
No one can give you odds of winning. While there could be a rising blood alcohol defense for both the DMV and criminal...
Can I be issued a DUI under these circumstances?
Yesterday I was pulled over for suspicion of DUI. The officer notified me that my BAC was .06. After administering a field sobriety test, the officer placed me under arrest. I was recorded was a BAC of .05 at the station and released about 7.5 hours later. I was given back my ID, as well as a yellow citation. I was told by the DMV when scheduling a hearing to keep my license from being suspended, that I should have received a pink sheet that served as a temporary license. I did not receive one. I am curious as to what my charges may end up being. I always thought that you needed to have a BAC of .08 of higher to be issued a DUI. Also, the officer told me that she pulled me over because it looked like I was tailgating the car in front of me. I was actually following my girlfriend home and drove behind her the whole way to ensure her safety, in case she was feeling tired and may have to pull over. The other concern I have is that I was not read my miranda rights when arrested, which I was under the assumption that my miranda rights must always be read. Any advice on the matter is much appreciated.
You best bet is consult with an attorney face to face and give them all of the details related to your arrest. If you...
