First charge got dismissed. Wondering how to go about this charge. Will it be listed as a second offense? What should I do? Also am I supposed to be given a ticket upon arrest?
It will not count as a second DUI which is good because you'd be looking at a minimum sentence of 5 days in jail...
I wasn't read any rights, but I wasn't questioned either. There was an accident, but with no injuries. I did contact the police shortly after and have records of that. I left due to fear of the other driver's demeanor. I blew over .15 BAC at the station. I only had my eyes checked on the field test. I was compliant in all ways and didn't feel or act intoxicated. I am unsure if a deferred adjudication, pretrial diversion, or deferred prosecution is best. I have a squeaky clean record and I'm a first time offender in every possible way. My job depends on me having a clean record and no convictions. Thank you

A DUI 2/14 refusal to provide sample as I did not blow hard enough to get results. I was going to hire a lawyer(non local)for more that was going to try and fight pre trial and specializes in DUI defense. I found a local lawyer for less and handles dui defense. With the refusal he said I take the 90 day suspension, he's going to set a court date at the arraignment next month and try a pre trial diversion.

I was working out of town when I got my first DUI, ever.
No -- you will need to appear in person to deal with this situation short of medical infirmity.
I was arrested after approximately 2 hours. I blew the Dragaer at the station and it "aborted twice for ambient air and accuracy" according to the ticket. Officer said I "failed" field sobriety tests but I will add I was standing on the side of a four lane highway, the road surface was wet, it was misting rain part of the time, I had been up for about 20 hours, and was nervous and anxious. All my paperwork says BAC is N/A or 0.000.
You never know for sure. There are no lesser included offenses to DUI. You should talk to an attorney.
