Had an accident, only me involved, and I was under the influence, but police report says "closed". Can I still be charged DUI?
Is the hospital required to report BAC to DMV in CT? Should I be expecting a notice? Police report says nothing about alcohol, and officer did not do a breath test @ hospital, just made my eyes follow his finger. Only hospital knew I was drunk. Do they tell anyone? Does officer call for a BAC after the fact? Hospital report has alcohol intoxication all over it though. Did I luck out? thank you.
Unless you were in police custody when you went to the hospital, your medical records are confidential. They cannot be...
Who understands how to read and understand the results from alcotest 9510 done by Torrington Police (breathalyzer) ?
test 1 subject IR 0.0155, EC OK test 2 subject IR 0.0109, EC OK Is this over the limit of .08 or 8% BAC, to the best of my knowledge IR stands for infrared test and EC stands for electrochemical test
Both tests are under the legal limit of .08

2 yrs executed suspension after 4 mos jail followed by 3 yrs probation, alcohol treatment program, fees, maybe 100 hrs community service (? mandatory). Lawyer says because sentence is more than 1 yr it's a felony. He refused breathalyzer. He doesn't know why he can't have a copy of tape. 1) Is it possible he will spend less time in jail? Would it be local? 2) Can you tell us how the "rules" are computed from 1st to 2nd offender (arrest date vs convicted date), we are confused. 3) How does he get a record of his convictions? Thank you
Too many variables to provide an intelligent answer. Feel free to contact our office tomorrow for a free consultation
AEP (CT) vs. DDP (Out-of-State)
Is the Drinking Driver Program (DDP) the same as the Alcohol Education Program (AEP)? He attended a DDP in 2007. Because a court date for conviction (jail, probation, etc.) or deciding to go to trial is coming up soon, we wonder if the names of the programs being different would change the outcome of convicted sentence. Not sure if that would be considered a "technical" issue.
I believe DDP is a NY program. So if you did the DDP as an alternative to the AEP because you had a DUI in CT but...
Trying to get A-44 Officer’s OUI Arrest and Alcohol Test Refusal or Failure Report.
Police, court clerk's office, prosecutor's office won't give it. He went to first hearing. How come nobody will give it to him? The only paperwork he received is the Notice of Rights - Bail, JD-CR-5. He was charged with 14-242, 14-227a, 53a-167. I'm sure you can see we want to it for his defense. We don't know how much trouble he is in. Someone said he can't get it until after trial and/or decision is finalized. I thought it was a person's right to obtain records in an arrest at any time. Cannot afford a lawyer right now. Please advise. Thank you.
It varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. If the arrest took place in New Milford his matter will be heard in Bantam,...
