Falsely Accused of DUI
Innocent

Ashland, KY

I thought you could drink and drive as long as you drank in moderation and maintained an alcohol level at or below .08. I found out wrong and got arrested and thrown in jail. It was the worst experience of my life. My lab results showed .04, but the officer lied about my breathalyzer results and put down .08 in his report. He also wrote I had some white powder up my nose and accused me of snorting. I've never snorted in my life, but for some reason he wanted that arrest. I was found not guilty, ultimately, in court. However, it costs me a lot of money for tow fees and a lawyer, not to mention the humiliation of the whole ordeal. Anybody had a similar experience or have some comments?

If you were found not guilty you can sue the city for unlawful imprisonment and compensation for your legal and other expenses. Did your attorney not tell you this?

You could have asked for an independent blood test at your expense after your arrest. At .04, it should have not gone to trial.

This is why police should not have as much power as they do, police should be held accountable for wrong doings. Also why we have a second amendment, in case of tyranny
