I just recently got arrested for a DUI. Can they arrest me when I am already out of the car and walking into my house?
The cop was following me for a good 2-3 blocks. In the police report it says I failed to stay in my lane and made a wide right turn. However, he passed me when I made my turn. Obviously, he did not think he had a probable cause to pull me over at that point right? Then I pull into my driveway and start walking to my house. Only then do I see the cop pull speed up to the house and turn on his lights. He then says "driver I need to talk to you". I failed the field sobriety tests and fail the breathilyzer. Does he have legal justification to arrest my on private property? Is tere any way I can fight this and have a good chance of winning? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
Following you for 2-3 blocks gave the officer plenty of time to observe your driving and reasonable grounds to further...
DWI record is expunged-what does this mean?
I got a letter from DA and it stated that my DWI charge from one year ago is now expunged beings I have done everything asked of me. What exactly does that mean?
If it is actually expunged this means that any and all public records of the arrest, charge and conviction are sealed...
Missouri DUI Laws vs Oklahoma DUI Laws
OK has a APC (Actual Physical Control) law, Missouri does not. Can MO up the charge to a Driving while intoxicated and suspend my license? License from MO, charge picked up in OK. I was not driving at the time of arrest
You need to move this question from OK to MO.
I got a DUI and blew .20
I'm 18 first offense not even a ticket before this it's filed in OKC okcpd was the arresting officals and I was wondering if there is anyway I can either get the probation and or interlock dropped or reduced I.e. Deal with the DA I need to figure out the best thing to do so that I do not get discharged
If you do not already have counsel, that is step 1. Get that done ASAP.
Will I be drug tested at my second hearing?
I am 15. I was not tested at my first hearing. And I was charged with public intoxication.
Probably not. If you are placed on probation, however, you will likely be tested at some point.
What happens if I move to a different state before receiving a DUI in my current state?
I got in a one car wreck while under the influence of alcohol. They took a blood sample and I assume it will come back over the legal limit. A week after I was released from the hospital, I got offered a job in Colorado. Now, I understand getting the blood test results takes some time, so what happens if I move before these results come back? I'm not trying to avoid dealing with the DUI, I'm just worried there may be some problems when I receive a DUI but have already moved to a different state.
Your best bet is to retain an attorney prior to moving. Many people hire attorneys during a pending investigation....
I was pulled over for suspended drivers license and DUI. The arresting officer didn't even read me my rights.
I was pulled over for suspended drivers license and DUI. The arresting officer didn't even read me my rights. I have been fighting this case since 2013. The arresting officer was placed on the stand and questioned by my pro bono attorney. He stated that he didn't read me my rights and nor did he have a video cam etc. My attorney stated that I could have actually gotten back in my car and drove off. My attorney asked for the case to be dismissed, but the judge said no since I had a DUI 10 years ago in Texas. This case is in Oklahoma by the way. I was approved for a court appointed attorney 4 times now but they keep saying I didn't fill the paperwork out correctly. I think they are just stringing me along for court cost. Is there anything I can do? I lost my job due to this so I'm currently unemployed. Thank you in advance.
A cop basically never has to read someone their rights unless they are in custody and being asked questioms that can...
