How long does the state have to submit known evidence to the court and still be admissable at trial ?
I am currently in the process of fighting an O.W.I. and I didnt take a PBT nor field sobriety tests so they took my blood via warrant . this was 7 months ago . The state filed the discovery and my blood test results was not inculded nor was there any mention of them in any part of the discovery , so me and my atty. asked for them after 6 months of delay they finally provided .
It is not unusual for the State lab to take months to turn around test results and this does not make them inadmissible.
Im on probation for a dui. I stole something from sister in law and shes pressing charges
Ive been on probation since aug. 09 and will be off in oct. 2010. I recently stole a ring and necklace from my sister in law and pawned it and she is pressing charges. At the time i was on a few different kinds of medication(although not an excuse)and didnt really realise what i was doing. I spent 7 hrs. in Hancock county jail and really dont wanna go back to jail. Can you give my some advice on what i should do? Also what punishment can i expect? Is there anyway to avoid jail time?
Jail time is much more likely as a second offender when serving probation. Hire a lawyer. DO NOT POST ANYTHING...
Will I be charged for a DUI?
My friend had a family emergency and had to get home earlier than expected and we had a few drinks at the bar. When we got to his house the police were already there and my friend went inside with them. After the situation concluded the police came out and questioned me. They asked if I was drinking I said yes and they did a breathalyzer test on me. I blew over but they did not arrest me, ask for my license, or even my name. They said this was a warning and said you should spend the night here. With all that being said, is there a chance of me being charged?
No one can say for certain if you will be charged. That is up to the prosecutor. However, given the circumstances that...
Will I get a Dui or will I be charged with anything?
I was driving home late after having a few drink at a friends house. I ended up rolling my car into a ditch. The police were called by a witness and I was given a field sobriety test and then later taken to the hospital for a blood test. After the blood test the officer let me go. I was not arrested. I understand that it takes about 6 weeks for the lab results to get back, but I'm still uncertain about what's going to happen next.
Since we don't know what you mean by "a few drinks," none of us can really answer that question. If your BAC was over ....
Can "precedent " be used in a preliminary hearing for a DWI
I found a case from an appellate court for an improper left turn. The judge ruled the law doesn't state which lane to go into when making a left turn in an intersection with more than one lane. I was pulled over for an improper left turn at an intersection which led to a DWI arrest where I was never read the consent law and didn't blow. Can "precedent from the appellate court "be used in the preliminary hearing since there was no probable cause for me being pulled over .
The Lake Superior Courts would consider it, but only at a hearing specifically set to determine probable cause...
How is it possible to be charged with public intoxication and DUI in Indiana?
My son was charged with both in Indiana. He was driving home.
There can be alternative charges brought against a person. It does not necessarily mean he can be convicted of both...
Can an out of state license be suspended in that state, but not the state in which it was issued?
I got a dui in Texas, my license was from Indiana. My license has been expired for 2 years. I went online with the BMV to apply, to see what would happen. It said I would have to apply in person because it's been over 12 months since it expired. I looked at my driving record and it says it's valid, even saying that there are no issues with the OOS. Does that mean I can reapply?
First of all, you should speak to an attorney licensed in the states where you received your DUI and where you are now...
