2nd DUI 2014 (1st 2006, convicted 2007, out of state, participated in an alcohol program). He was offered...
2 yrs executed suspension after 4 mos jail followed by 3 yrs probation, alcohol treatment program, fees, maybe 100 hrs community service (? mandatory). Lawyer says because sentence is more than 1 yr it's a felony. He refused breathalyzer. He doesn't know why he can't have a copy of tape. 1) Is it possible he will spend less time in jail? Would it be local? 2) Can you tell us how the "rules" are computed from 1st to 2nd offender (arrest date vs convicted date), we are confused. 3) How does he get a record of his convictions? Thank you
Too many variables to provide an intelligent answer. Feel free to contact our office tomorrow for a free consultation
Trying to get A-44 Officer’s OUI Arrest and Alcohol Test Refusal or Failure Report.
Police, court clerk's office, prosecutor's office won't give it. He went to first hearing. How come nobody will give it to him? The only paperwork he received is the Notice of Rights - Bail, JD-CR-5. He was charged with 14-242, 14-227a, 53a-167. I'm sure you can see we want to it for his defense. We don't know how much trouble he is in. Someone said he can't get it until after trial and/or decision is finalized. I thought it was a person's right to obtain records in an arrest at any time. Cannot afford a lawyer right now. Please advise. Thank you.
It varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. If the arrest took place in New Milford his matter will be heard in Bantam,...

What are the consequences of failing a rolling retest with an Intoxalock Ignition Interlock Device in Connecticut?
I know this is incredibly stupid, but this morning I had to have my girlfriend blow into my device to start my car because i still had alcohol in my system. I failed a rolling retest 3 times before it finally cleared, and now I am panicked about the consequences because I don't know what happens from here. Can anybody give me an idea of what to expect now?
Your question is not stupid at all. But perhaps it is better directed to the attorney who previously represented you....
