No tests were given . He said I was not to be charged and to be let out "free ticket" after I "slept it off" till 6 am. Ended up with my pic in paper as public drunk. Can I do anything? pic in paper hurt and estranged my adult and college aged kids?
Likely no. It's not false information. You were arrested. You might have a lawsuit against the doctor, though..
Out of State DUI - Currently live in a neighboring state, but already in the process of moving cross-country
Recently I was pulled over for speeding and charged with a DUI in TN. My hearing is next month. I have retained council in TN. I live in MS, but my job is being transferred to the east coast. I understand that if convicted, TN will not take my license, but MS will. Then things with the license will be complicated because I will not be living in MS in a couple of months. I'm more concerned about how probation will work? Will TN care if I'm not living in MS anymore (as long as i'm flying back to attend classes and meetings) I'm not worried about expenses as keeping my job is my priority. (for the long run) Any advice will be appreciated. My TN attorney is only focused on TN and my MS attorney is taking a wait and see attitude. Should I call an attorney in the new state too?
You already have an attorney in TN and should ask any and all questions about the case to your attorney. When you get...
Do I have to take the masap and VIP classes twice if I have 2 dui's? My 2nd one was dropped to DUI 1st.
I got 2 dui's within months of each other. I plead guilty to both of them but my second was dropped down to DUI 1st, not 2nd. So since it's only a 1st, do I have to pay and attend the masep and VIP classes twice or am I able to do it once and knock both cities out at once?? (One DUI was in long beach and the other in diberville)
I would suggest contacting the lawyer that represented you on both cases. If not available, contact a Mississippi DUI...
I was arrested by public drunk, and I need to go to court for arraignment. I'm an international student, with J-1 Visa and I can't spend 30 days in jail. In my affidavit of arrest, the police officer put as witness: "my self and all passersby". Do I need a lawyer? What are the chances for me just pay the $100.00 fee instead of spend 30 days in jail?
Oxford has a reputation for being pretty strict about alcohol related charges, so your best chance of obtaining a good...
I was arrested for public intoxication/profanity and leaving the scene of an accident. Is it likely i will do jail time?
I was drunk and lightly grazed a fence, I was not in the vehicle when they got there so they didn't give me a DUI. I was probably very rude and belligerent.
You need an attorney now. It is possible they could try to amend. Please got counsel. I know myself and others offer...
My daughter (21) was arrested for public drunk last night at Ole Miss vs Alabama game except she was not drunk.
She had only 2 drinks but has a seizure disorder which causes her to pass out. It is a form of epilepsy. She work up disoriented to the cops asking her questions and eventually putting handcuffs on her. They tried to let her call one of her friends to come get her but when she comes out of the seizures she doesn't always understand her surroundings and some of that part of the night is fuzzy. She doesn't drink much because she can't with the depekote. They put her in handcuffs and took her to hail and when she finally was coherent enough to tell them about her disorder and that she had t taken her meds for the day they said they would have a nurse come but that never happened so they clearly didn't believe her. Her roommate came and bailed her out . What are her options?
She should obtain a good local attorney and hopefully they can make this charge go away. That is a shame that they are...
