In SC, if the breathalyzer trips off, a retest is done and malfunction is never reported to SLED, is reading allowed in court?
The Datamaster breathalyzer was in use on a DUI suspect and in the middle of the testing it just locked up for no apparent reason. Operator restarted, did the test, got the BAC reading but violated SLED procedures by not reporting the malfunction to SLED. No repairs or inspections are documented in the SLED database in regards to this malfunction nor were there any status code messages..
This should all be on video. Have your attorney review the Datamaster room video and file a motion to suppress.
Can they mail a dui even if they let me drive away
I pulled off the side of a dirt road to let a game warden pass, he stopped his truck and started asking us questions i told him i had a few beers but i drank 3 beers early that afternoon and didnt drink anymore it was already 9;00 at night. He gave me a field test with a flashlight and told me i was not that bad and told me get in my truck and drive back home.
This does sound unusual. You would be well advised to retain a criminal defense attorney, as if you were not given a...
How do you transfer DUI charges from Colorado to South Carolina and how soon?
My daughter lives in Colorado had first offence DUI Dec 2015. Unfortunately has 8 classes left due to financial problems. Now she finds herself homeless and needs to move to South Carolina with me.
You cannot do that. The criminal justice system is not set up for the convenience of the accused.
I missed a court date for DUI by less than a month, because I just moved and didn't change my address with the court in time.
I had a car accident in April of 2014. While at the hospital somehow the office found out I take prescription pain medicine. I was charged with DUI and blood was drawn. I went to my first court date that was on the ticket. The results of the blood test were not back. The case was put on hold till they come back. Six months later I went and checked on the case and was told the test where still not back, so six or so months later I checked again. The test where still not back. I moved in July of 2016. The accadent was over 2 years ago at that point. I went to the DMV to have my address changed on my license and was told that they had been supended. The trial was in September of 2016. I can't find any information about the blood test. I had not taken any pain medicine the day of the accident. It had been almost 17 hours since I had any. I was not under the influence at all. I applied for an appeal, but have not heard anything about it yet. I got a letter today saying that I have to either pay $100.00 or turn my licenses in by 12/18. I have never been in any trouble at all and don't feel that the mistake of not changing my address in time should ruin my life. Please help!!
I suggest you hire a criminal defense attorney that deals with DWI/DWI, as unless you understand criminal procedure and...
Will I be able to get a ticket case for a DUI continued?
I recently had an accident involving only myself, and was ticketed for a DUI. I don't have the money to pay the hefty ticket right now. What are the chances a lawyer will be able to get the case continued for a while until I can get the money together?
You do not want to go it alone on a DUI. You would be well advised to hire a criminal defense attorney who handles DUI,...

What Happens When Someone Gets A 30 Day Sentence In Court In One County But Got Locked Up In Another County The Same Or Next Day.

DUI reduced to reckless driving.
I'm a nurse that was charged with dui with hopes that I can get it reduced to reckless driving. I read in a previous post that this is only a traffic violation and not a criminal offense. Is this correct and it will not show up on a background check.
Depending on how the background check is run, this may certainly show up. I would advise a criminal defense lawyer who...
