Do I need to hire a Lawyer? And can I win this case?
I was arrested for DUI and the officer took me to the hospital to draw my blood. I told the officer I do not give him consent to take my blood. The officer then told me I do not have that right and he could strap me down or put me to sleep to get my blood. I do not feel that is that is right considering some people never wake up after being put to sleep. Then at my first court appearance the court could not find my records of even being in jail. They rescheduled my court date for 2 months later. Is there a chance of winning this,?
Yes you need a lawyer. In certain cases of DUI, the officer will get a warrant to draw blood for determining your...
I got convicted of DUI in Arkansas right around ten yrs. ago and now I have been charged with a DUI in Tennessee?
will this show up in court? Also the officer gave me a commercial vehicle DUI and this is false.

Is possible to be convicted of a DUI and be unaware of it?
Today I received a letter from the Dept of Homeland Security that my license had be revoked due to a DUI conviction in Feb of 2012 and that I could reapply for my license on April 17, 2013. I have never been arrested for a DUI or ticketed for the same. I have retained insurance, renewed my registration and license and obtained a professional healthcare license, and passed background checks for work in a ER past that date. I was just accepted to medical school starting in August and am afraid my status with them will be negatively affected by this. Can I be convicted with a DUI without ever being stopped for an alcohol related issue or ever receiving notification of said offense?
No. This sounds like a mistake. You should call the phone number listed on the letter you received and explain you...
Possible DUI but no indication of blood testing from medical records, case to be presented to grand jury
I had a vehicle accident with property damage. There was a beer can in the vehicle at the time of the accident and a loaded gun (I have a carry permit). I was flown to a trauma center. No records from the hospital show any BAC testing. I have not been arrested, and the officer who worked the accident is presenting this to a grand jury. My friends say that I was sober when I left their home just 20 minutes before the accident. I do have a history of passing out, but this has not ever been investigated medically. 1.) Is it typical for BAC blood testing to occur without it showing up on a patient's medical records? Also, 2.) If there is sufficient evidence of DUI, why hasn't the officer just arrested me instead of going to the grand jury?
The reason why there have been no charges is the state is gathering evidence, and presenting it to the grand jury. The...
I have been accused of a first. How can I get a pre-trial diversion? offense DUI
I had not consumed alcohol, but failed the field test. I passed the breath test given at the jail, but found out two Months later I failed the blood sample. I had taken a medication called Hydroxyzine and found out that it is metabolized in the liver and can show up as alcohol in the blood. This is in my medical records, but the D.A. told me I cannot present that in court without an expert witness. What is my alternative?
DUI is not an offense eligible for Diversion in TN. You need to hire a DUI attorney in your area and stop talking to...
I have been charged with a DUI, in Tennessee and I was not operating the vehicle, nor were the keys in the ignition.
I was sleeping, and was woken by the arresting officer. I did not take a breathilizer because I was not operating the vehicle when arrested, not was I pulled over with the vehicle motion. I was forced to give blood a blood sample. That is the most likely outcome with a good defense attorney ? My career is on the line, and operating a company car is required. I must beat this case for possible reinstatement with my current employer, as I have been terminated with out going to court/trial yet.
The State's theory is that you were in physical control of the vehicle and you can be convicted of DUI without actually...
