I was in a car accident and got a DUI about a month later. How will I know if my license is suspended?
I was in a car accident about a month ago. I had to be taken to the hospital. When I woke up I was told I was above the legal limit. No one else was hurt but me. I got a letter in the mail stating they were charging me with a DUI and Reckless driving. How will I know if my drivers license is still good? It was never taken away from me and the cops never came to visit me in the hospital.
You will get a notice of suspension. Note however, it will be mailed to whatever address was on the license you had on...
Got pulled over for a second Dui while on probation for the first
The first DUI i got pulled over for i pleaded guilty to an impaired driving charge, while on probation i got pulled over for the second time (stupidity at its finest). my question is that would the first charge be upgraded to a DUI, and the second charge a second DUI, or is it possible for a Defense lawyer to make a deal to allow the first one to be as it is and the second one to be charged as a first DUI conviction, and if it is, would my driver licence suspension be reduced from two years to 120 days ?
The impaired driving conviction could be upgraded as a DUI. It depends on what type of impaired driving you entered a...
My daughter was pulled over for a missing headlight in AUG, 2011 and was given a DUI. However, she has not been convicted.
My daughter was out with a friend and she is not much of a drinker. She told her friend she would be the Designated Driver and only had 1 drink over a 2 hour period. She was driving her friend's car which had a missing headlight and was pulled over. The officer had been watching the bar and asked if she had been drinking. She told him she only had 1 drink but he proceeded to give her the sobriety test. Her friend in the car said she did very well. The officer gave her a breath test after asking her several questions, one of which, if she wore a retainer. She does wear a retainer and told him twice. He did not have her remove it. "The Baker Law" She blew a .088. After review of tape,in order to show cause, officer had asked twice and we thought it was over. Nope, a jury trial in Sept????
It appears that the judge is allowing the breath test result into evidence. From the facts, as stated, the breath test...

I currently have a hardship license in florida (limited) and I need to know what to do in order to obtain a drivers license in Utah.
Call the DMV in Utah, or whatever its equivalent is, and ask.
First time offense, DUI options to approach the situation.
A couple days ago on my way home after hanging out with a friend I was charged with a DUI. I had just missed the curb as I was distracted, which caused me to swerve away from it. I pulled over to check my car, as I came back to the car, a police officer stopped to check on me. When I explained why I swerved and said I had just drank one beer and offered to take the sobriety test he told me I was okay to go as far as I had someone come to pick me up. When another officer arrived at the scene less than 1 minute from that, he came back and asked if I could take the test. He then proceeded to tell me I was intoxicated and that I needed to go back to the station, after seating in a room for 15-30 minutes while he filled up the information he ran the breathalyzer which ran at .09. During the time I waited he kept his back to me and did not check my mouth before proceeding. I found this shocking with having only having drank one beer. Should I be disputing this or trying to get this to lower charge it all feels strange and poorly done ??
Your mistake was talking to the cop and offering to help yourself get arrested, and possibly convicted. You should have...
Can an officer make me do a field sobriety test based on my criminal history?
I was pulled over by a motorcycle cop for a cracked windshield. I had all my documents necessary and I gave them to him. Another cop pulls up in a truck. They chit chat for a minute, then the truck cop comes to my door & asks me to step out so he can explain the ticket to me. I get out & we walk to the back of the car. The motorcycle cop tells me hes just giving me a fix it ticket & has me sign it. I was shaking a lil because every time I get pulled over by cottonwood heights cops it never turns out good. So then the motorcycle cop says hes seen that I have a criminal past with drugs and/or something recently with them. I say thats correct. Then he asks me if there's anything illegal in the car, I say no. Then he asks me if he can search the car, I say no, he asks why, I tell him I was on my way to pick my brother up & now im late. Then the truck cop starts saying something about my eyes and then asks me if im on drugs, I tell him no. Then he asks me if ill do a field sobriety test, I repeat everything I said before. Then the motorcycle cop snickers and says thats just his nice way of telling you you're going to do a field sobriety test based on your background. Is that legal?
No, a police officer is not supposed to make you do a field sobriety test. Those are, in theory, voluntary. My question...
I blew 0.024 and was given a DUI citation he called it. do I need to hire an atty to have the charges dropped?
On Cinco de Mayo, I was invited to company party. I arrived at 4:30 PM and left around 6:00 PM. When I first got there, I had one Margarita. Before leaving I drank some water and did not feel buzzy so I decided I could drive. I drove around for the next couple of hours looking for an open salon to get a haircut. I'm new to the area. About 8:00 PM, I pulled into Tangles just off of Fort Union and 2000 East. A girl came to the front desk and told me she was just finishing up and I would have to come back before 5:00 PM to make an appointment. So I left and went back to my car in their parking lot. I noticed there were 3 other cars there and didn't think anything of it. I sat in the driver's seat with the keys in the ignition, engine was not started, and checked email and returned Voice Mail. Twenty minutes later, 2 police cars came driving up and asked me what I was doing and If I had been drinking. I said yes and consequently did not want to blow into their device that could have been tampered with. So I took the 3 street tests. I was arrested, car was impounded, DL was taken and I was taken back to the police station. He finished filling out his report and told me...
Yes, you better hire competent legal counsel on this one..
