Brooks Law

off the road hitting a tree and rolling ove landing upside down. The car behind me stopped, got me out and police came. He called EMS. He tried to give me a breath test, but the glass that I had in my mouth made it impossible to blow( even though I did try 3 times). I was not seen on video and was not given a blood test. I was transported to the hospital and was released 3 hrs later. I was chared with DUI due to the smell of alcohol on my clothes from working in the bar that night. I've gone to court once and was delayed to another date. I didn't get the public defender because I thought I could save enough for an attrny, but don't have it. What will the judge do this time and can I ask for more time? Also, can I receive any additional charges when my ticket just says dui?
You need an attorney ASAP. If you cannot afford a private attorney, at the next court date ask the judge to appoint you...
My close friend is going to court in the morning for his 4th DUI. I do not know his prior legal arrangements regarding his other DUI cases. He is planning on pleading not guilty in the morning so that he can have a trial, to obtain time to seek better council due to the fact that he only blew a .09 and the legal limit here in KY is .08. Is this a bad idea and if he pleads guilty will he waive his rights?
It seems you posted this question two times. Here is my previous response. I am only basing my advice on the...
I had my first DUI on 11/14/2010 and it was unaggravated but my second one was on 8/28/2014 and it was aggravated. Can I get my first DUI expunged and when ? Thank you. I live in KY.
If you plead guilty to the 2nd DUI, you will be ineligible to have the first one expunged, absent a creative agreement...
My son's blood work from the hospital states his Ethanol level, Plasma was 81 (NEG mg/dL) - what does that mean? We have heard that number needs to be converted because it is Plasma.
You should be discussing this (or rather your son should) with his DUI defense lawyer. DUI defense is not a DIY project....
i have never been arrested or in any trouble in my life. i went to pretrial today and was told that i said in a statement that i saw my husband drive his scooter in the driveway and then on audio i said that i didn't see him drive in the driveway but he came back after leaving. the county attorney wanted a guilty plea. i refused to plead guilty and asked for a deferral. he refused any options but to go to trial. is this legal and what will happen in this case?

I have lost my job And know I cannot work because of my disability. How much volunteer work can I do to pay off my fines and court fee. Also is a court cost the same as service fees?
I can't speak directly to the laws of KY, but in NY there is no option to "work off" your fines. You owe the fines and...
I showed no HGN but because I didn't pass the FST the officer arrested me. I am almost 60 yrs old. I have arthritis bad enough I have trouble walking a lot of the time. It was almost 1:30am and I was in an unfamiliar town looking for the AT&T store where my boyfriend had left his truck. I was driving really slow looking for the building and the officer said I crossed the center line twice and then crossed the white line. I thought after he learned of my perplexed situation he would help me instead he saw an opportunity to arrest me. He told me I was "impaired" because I couldn't pass his Test. My eyes were fine and my speech was fine. And I know my blood test has to be negative. What are they going to do with me? I have never been so humiliated and insulted in my life.
No alcohol and no drugs in your system? The case should be dropped.
