My DWI charge is being reduced to obstruction of a roadway, will my license still be suspended?
after over a year after my wreck (one vehicle, no property damage to anything other then my own) they are charging me with DWI. At the seen or at the hospital i was never asked to blow, they did take blood at the hospital (.14) but i was never arrested or heard anything thing from anyone about a DWI until getting a certified letter in the mail over a year later saying i had a court date. my attorney told me that the DA is offering OAR $500 fine + court cost, 40 hours of community service, victim impact panel and alcohol class. i am still unclear if i will have to do probation or if my license will be suspended.
Speak to your attorney. He will know if a suspension is a condition of the plea.

Drunk driver is 18 who is at fault and what are the charges?
Keep in mind the drunk driver for both scenario's is 18. #1 A drunk driver is driving through an intersection and has the green light, but a speeding car runs through a red light and hits the drunk driver...who is at fault? why? and what happens to the drunk driver? #2 A cop pulls over the drunk driver and asks the driver to step out of the car... and he says he smells alcohol. what would the drunk driver say? and what happens next to the drunk driver?
The drunk driver has a right to remain silent, and so need not say anything (#2); as one of my favorite comedians says...
What will prevent me from getting off interlock for DWI early?
Im on 1 year probation for 2 DWI's, the DWI's happened 4 years ago, I've served 6 months probation already. My attorney handed documentation over to the probation office in Dallas (I'm out of state supervised). I have been totally compliant, have a portable breathalyzer no fails, all fines and fees completed. He told me he just handed the paper work to probation and we'll see what happens next week. Would I typically qualify for early removal of the interlock? It didnt sound like he did much more than just turn in the paper work...
Highly discretionary with the judge, but it's been 1/2 the period of probation, so, you're eligible. Don't be too...
Is there any way to get charges dropped or changed from a DWI?
I had not slept for around 30 hours beforehand. I was driving from Virginia to California to begin my senior year of college. I bought a Four Loko and drank it at a rest stop about 30 minutes beforehand, trying to make myself more drowsy so I would be able to fall asleep easier. However, I was too anxious to fall asleep so I decided to keep driving for a bit. The cop pulled me over and I panicked. He asked where I was headed and I said I don't know (I was pretty out of it). He asked if I had been drinking and I said no. He told me to get out of the car and he asked me again if I had been drinking. I said yes. I admitted I admitted to drinking a Four Loko at a rest stop about an hour earlier. He then performed a field sobriety test on me. However, his instructions were unclear at times and when I got it wrong, he yelled at me which made me even more nervous. At some point he searched through my car and found about about a cup of Four Loko in a McDonald's cup. He also told me that the medication he found said that alcohol should not be used with them. He asked if I thought I should be driving. I said that it might be good for me to take a break for an hour or two. He took me to the s
yes there is a way and may be possible after you work with your FREE or hired Criminal Defense Attorney who will review...

How bad is my dui situation?
I am currently in the process of fighting my first dui charge. It was charged as a felony bc my teenage kids were in the car with me. It was not due to alcohol, but for medications I was taking at the time. That was in Travis county one yr ago, and wee are still fighting it. Last night, in Harris county, I was pulled over after having dinner with friends where I had 1.5 drinks around 11pm. When I was pulled over it was around 130am. They searched my vehicle and purse and found a medication bottle (non narcotic) that says don't drive while taking this med until you are aware of how it affects you. I've been on it for years so it really doesn't affect me as far as drowsiness, etc. But that pretty much sealed the deal on the arrest. They asked me to perform the sobriety testing, I started to do the walking the line thing, took about 2 steps and refused to continue. They did the nystagmus test several times however they didn't tell me the results of that. I did, stupidly, do the breathalyzer which they wouldn't tell me the results of. How very screwed am I? Also they confiscated the medication bottle, my ID, and my wallet with 300$ in it that I never got back. how bad is it?
If you had 1.5 drinks then you should be well within the limit and your attorney can work towards a dismissal. That...
