I was 20 at the time of the incident, and the man was 4 years my elder. He got me into a 21+ bar and bought me numerous liquor drinks & shots. We had sex, though I was blacked out and only remembered pieces of the incident afterward. I became pregnant and only then did I figure out exactly what had happened that night after being told the exact events by the assailant. I received an abortion the following month. I never filed a legal complaint as I did not identify as a rape victim and because I stupidly trusted it was not a malicious crime. Only now, I suffer terrible anxiety because of the abortion and out of fear the assailant will tell friends and family about it. Also he was on felony probation at the time for drug related crimes.
Your age wouldn't be the deciding factor as to whether or not it was rape. Based on the facts as you tell them, it...
I was arrested for suspected DUI. I have both a passenger witness and I believe their car tape that will substantiate I was not DUI. I need a "model" so I can produce a motion for dui dismissal. This is my 1st time before the judge and no plea has been entered yet. I will be representing myself as I am a 100% disabled veteran without adequate resources immediately at hand.
You should not represent yourself unless its an absolute necessity. You can get a public defender if you qualify for...
I currently hold my cdls. I was driving my personal car and got pulled over. I wasnt thinking right. Goodlettsville police and Davidson county police were both involved. Goodlettsville did the breathalyzer and I blew a .162. They gave me a ticket for my window tinting and speeding(117 in a 45). Davidson county gave me a Dui and wreckless driving(going 77 in a 35). I'm not sure why I got all these different citations and charges from the same incident. What are my chances of getting no dui or no wreckless driving? What would I get? I need a great attorney!
Call rob McKinney in Nashville. He is the DUI atty in that area. You got problems! Sounds like a bad case.
Arrested for DUI. I was weaving (dropped items in the car and weaved) and also failed portions of the field sobriety test (eye test and one balance test). I was extremely nervous. Never experineced anything like this before. No alcohol and no illegal drugs in my system but I do take 20 mg of paxil daily. I told the trooper but do not know if he recorded this information or added it to his report for testing to use against me. Will the blood test look for this prescription med when testing? I have read it is possible to have a DUI arrest enforced even when prescribed medication is taken in its prescribed dosage.
It's doubtful they would detect the Paxil unless they specifically looked for it. In my experience, Paxil does not...
