I live in Tennessee, but I go to school in Indiana.
You will have to hire a criminal defense attorney to help you with the charge as well as the suspended license. There...
I had a BAC of .31 last night. I don't remember hitting a parked car, but apparently somebody followed me home and called the police. The police entered my house where I live with my cousins. They took me from my room and brought me to jail. I blew .31 at my house and then .23 at the jail. This is my first offense. I've never been arrested. What can I expect in Indiana? I realize that I need help, but I'm 21 years old and in college and I really can't afford prison. My parents are hiring a lawyer.
allow your parents to hire the lawyer and listen to the advice that they give you. good luck
I was given a DUI for having marijuana in my system while driving. I was originally pulled over for rolling through the stop sign, cop said he smelled weed in my car, so and so forth. Had to sit in jail. Got a court date. Got sentenced to 40 hours comm service and Evaluation @ A&D. Is there anything I can do to get this dismissed or something? I really wasn't intoxicated while driving and I think having to through the whole jailing process was enough time wasted for all of this. I don't want to make it sound like money is an issue but I have no plans on paying them the amounts I owe in court costs.. It's like throwing money away. What are my options and best outcome of the situation?
Did you have an attorney? If so talk to him/her about a Post Conviction motion. If you didn't have an Attorney that...
neighbors called cops on him.
Until the Indiana legislature passes a law against being drunk at home, I think you couldn't be charged with a crime....
I went to court yesterday and didnt take the plea that they gave me. I am being charged with owi, (indiana), illegal consumption
of alcohol- im only 20yrs. old band leaving the scene of an accident- because I slightly hit a tree in an abandon backyard of someones, causing no damage. and one other small misdemeanor that I honestly cant even remember right now sorry. They offered to drop 2 of the small misdemeanors if I agreed to drinking and driving. The thing is I wasnt driving when the police arrived, I was cutting out the air bag parked out front with no key in the ignition, no lights on or anything. I was drunk though but I did not admit to driving what so ever. I told my defender that I will take every charge except the dui. I'm curious as to what the odds might be of the court maybe offering me another plea, or really go to trial on a 1st offense 20 year old?
You should ask your lawyer. He knows far more about your case and the court you are in than does anyone here. They...
I'm on informal probation & was going into a deferment program, then got in trouble again so what's going to happen?
I had got in trouble one night for possession so we were going into a deferment program but I hadn't started or payed yet, then I got in trouble again for underage drinking. What's going to happen? I have court Nov 28th and want to know if I need to look into getting an attorney.
Indiana wants me. I attended law school there at Valpo and I am licensed there, though inactive. I do not need to be an...
How do some people get a way with DUIs while in their car with the keys in ignition? While others don't.
For example this cop who is a DUI enforcer himself gets a way with a DUI. While a person like myself who isn't in the car, who has his keys in his pocket and is far away from the car gets his first DUI. Just not sure how the justice system is working here. Here's the story about the cop and his DUI: http://www.wkrn.com/story/24535856/franklin-dui-officer-avoids-arrest-after-being-found-passed-out-in-car-at-bar Prior to my arrest I had a perfect driving record (12 years of driving at the time). I don't expect any answers to this question. I'm just stating the truth that cops themselves can get away with crimes that normal people would be arrested for.
The quality of your lawyer helps. Some of us are at 100% success on these kinds of cases
