You can be charged with DUI in Utah for prescription drugs that you are legally taking, and the charge is just as...
I was in Utah for the weekend and I had gotten pulled over for speeding in the process I told the police that i did have some marijuana with me . I do have a medical card for my condition from California state. And it is illegal to carry the marijuana with me in the state of Utah. I did get tested to see if I was sober and I did not pass even though i was not under the influence the police did not make there decision until they took my blood test, and I had told them that I was not smoking in this state of Utah. I was charged with a possession and a DUI but that was after they took my blood test that they found thc ofcourse they were because I am a regular smoker. But when they took the breathalizer it was a 0.0 nothing. What can I do?
It is always difficult to answer the question "what can I do" in a criminal case since your recollection of the events...
My family member was driving last night and while looking to make a lane change he crossed the median and then over corrected and lost control of the vehicle and rolled several times. After the accident they couldn't find his eye glasses. He would be considered legally blind without his glasses and after rolling the car he was really shook up. He was asked to do a field sobriety test and failed. He told the officers he had taken prescription medicine the night before (24 hours earlier). They placed him under arrest for a DUI but did not take him to jail. At the hospital the police took blood samples. Will the blood test be able to show how long ago he had taken the prescription medication? Also, will he be able to get a court appointed attorney as he has no job or assets?
In regards to the blood samples, they should be able to determine the amount of the drug in his system. They could...
I wasn't driving when we got pulled over and he was the DD, they noticed he had a warrant for his arrest for a registration issue and said if he filled out a form stating he saw me driving drunk they would let him go, so he filled out the form but never stated he saw me driving drunk, just that he saw me driving and didn't give times. How am I supposed to fight this? They took blood samples too once we got to the jail. I WAS NOT driving, I was in the passenger seat.
The first element of "Driving Under the Influence" is that you be in control of the vehicle. Sounds like you got a...
I was never ordered to have an ignition interlock by my judge. I have a DUI (first one) I have never had a license so when I got my DUI I figured it was long gone anyways. Drove to a gas station got stopped and was arrested for revoked license and Operating vehicle without IID. I've checked with my probation and the judge never ordered me to have one. Where is this coming from?
DMV. It seems like the judge missed the ignition interlock device on the final disposition of your case.
I got one October of last year and they gave me a plea in abeyance it hasn't been a year sense then so I don't know If I failed the plea or not.
I see no one has answered your question. Consider speaking with a local DUI lawyer. Most will give you a free...
