So i was giving a MIP for a beer in my pocket on the CU boulder campus. I was waliking a very inebriated friend home because it seemed to me he couldn't get home on his own. when we arrived at his dorm cops stoped us and sat us down for the reason that we seemed drunk. The CU PD thought i had a beer in my pocket and when asked me to take it out i refused. So when the asked me to empty my pockets so i reached into both front pockets i pulled out my phone and wallet and upon doing so i was handcuff and promptly searched where they found the beer in my back pocket and gave me a MIP. Also when they asked me to sign the ticket, i refused and they told me I would go to jail and i still refused to when they gave me the ticket and sent me home. I want to fight this.
Obviously there are constitutional protections against illegal stops and seizures. You may have an argument to...
I got a DWAI with a low BAC. There were no drugs involved. I do not do or possess illegal substances. I quickly satisfied all the conditions of the court and am now on unsupervised probation. When I got transfered to unsupervised probation (for which I have documentation in the form of a judges order) I was told by my attorney that I no longer had any restrictions and that my only condition was to remain law abiding. I am an avid hunter, and, in the interest of remaining law abiding, want to make sure that what my attorney told me was true and that I am legally able to possess a firearm. I have no restrictions or conditions which have not been completed and am otherwise legally able to purchase so I imagine I am good to go?
If you were convicted of a felony, the federal government prohibits you from firearm possession.
Jefferson Cnty. CO. Charged with DWAI (4th in lifetime), plea bargain for inmate/outmate w/ 1 yr. susp. jail. 2 yrs. probation, fines, etc... Did 90 days WR, and lasted about 2 mos. in ISP via. Intervention in golden. Caught charge in Bldr. Cnty. for Driving Under revocation. Had an emotional breakdown. Did not complete probation. 5 mos. later, I come home to turn myself in. Now am facing a "3rd degree escape charge from misdemeanor" and the original charge of DWAI. Id prefer to do straight time at this point, but how little time can I do w/o probation. There are many small details in this matter which made this case incredibly hard for me to succeed...
What you should be looking for defense wise, is a defense lawyer.
Blew a .198 which was very high for how I felt
What leads you to the opinion that braces have any impact on your BAC level? As long as the officer observes you for...
How difficult is it for me to obtain a hardship license here in CO. My license was revoked in FL for driving violations and non-payment of fees. I went to driving school and have since paid all of my violations.
Let me put it like the DMV will, is your privilege to drive revoked in this state or any other? If the answer is yes,...
My biggest thing is...I committed my offense in Nov 2007 and didn't drive until able to afford, finally, Dec 2013 to get my license reinstated and the interlock installed. They extended because they're treating it as a new case, a case under new law 1/14 for "early reinstatement". Why wouldn't my rules fall under those of 2007 or 2008? Over six years later certainly is not "early". I do not know what caused the fails but I was told not to try again any time soon if I failed, so I got rides and didn't start the car again until the next day which is what seems to have been the decision maker. So, in a murder trial I would have to be proven guilty but it's assumed I had been drinking for these fails...why wouldn't my readings have been higher. I have stopped using mouthwash, hairspray.
There are ways to fight the DMV challenges to your Interlock fails. You need to contact a good DUI attorney who is...
I was pulled over for expired tags in 2012 after making the terrible decision to get behind the wheel after drinking. I had no prior arrests or misdemeanors. I opted for the blood test and came back with a very high BAC of .246. I plead guilty to DWAI in April 2013 and received 30 days EHM, community service, alc classes, monitored sobriety and fines. I have now completed all that the court required of me except for the remaining time on probation. I have been totally clean since and have passed every UA. Is it possible (or likely) to have my probation terminated early? Not sure if I can get off early because I took a plea bargain from the DA in order to avoid jail time. Answers are very appreciated. Thanks
Probably not. Two years probation is the norm for that high of a BAC. Additionally, the plea agreement likely called...
