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...
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...
I live in Oklahoma, I got arrested and charged with a DUI 2 years ago. I have completed my deferred sentence and have completed my 991C expungement process, they said my plea will be changed, record sealed, and can only be accessed through OSBI. If the company I am interning for runs a background check or looks at my driving record, will the DUI show up?
Yes. A 991c is not an arrest expungment. A background through obi for crim. history will show you areezted, charged...
The breathalyzer wasn't operating i didn't refuse, i wasn't asked to take a sobriety test either, but refused the blood test?
i didn't take the breath test and no sobriety test was given.
If you refused a blood test, your DL will be revoked via the DPS administrative process. You should retain counsel...
My son was arrested for DUI & spent a night in jail. He swears he wasn't drinking/drugs. The blood test should prove this.
He had just been in a college class & stayed afterwards to talk with his prof, who says he was fine. 40 min later arrested. Our problem is.....his court date is this Thursday, but the blood tests results won't be back for a couple more weeks. 1st time arrested....he was in shock.
Even if blood test results do not come back with any substance or alcohol, don't expect the prosecutor to just dismiss....
I just left work and on the way home I got into an accident. They asked me to do a field test and I passed it. I also passed the breathalyzer. I refused the blood test, however considering I passed the other two I didn't think it was necessary. So they took me to jail and had me sign some forms and considering I worked from 8 at night to 10 in the morning and it was already close to noon I did not read the forms. I am not guilty, however since I did refuse the blood test I doubt I can prove that. What can I do?
A lot. Do not rest on thinking that DWI's can't be beat. A good/great DWI attorney can work wonders. Sometimes I...
How much trouble will my 17 year old son be in for not changing his drivers license from Kansas to Oklahoma within 6 months ?
He got pulled over for a field interview? What does that even mean? Anyway we have property in both states and he got a ticket for not having an Oklahoma license. Whyddoes it need to be Oklahoma when we drive back and forth between the two states?
Contact counsel who regularly practices in the jurisdiction where the ticket was written.
