My daughter was charged with DUI, on her way to work in July 2014. How long does she have to wait for "speedy" justice?
She has never had a traffic ticket. The officer had blood drawn at the jail and it was sent to TBI. She went back to court in Jan. 2015. "Drug results are not back yet" New date set for April. She hasn't hired an attorney because she didn't have drugs in her system. She was honest with the officer when he asked and told him she had taken her sleep medication early that morning. This was around 3PM. The judge told her she needed to prove to him that she has spoken to 4 attorneys and that she can't afford to pay those attorneys before he would appoint a public defender. After this incident, she lost her job, her home and her dog. She now is working 2 part time jobs and living with her mom. What happened to "innocent until proven guility". The attorney she did consult wanted $2500
I would suggest that you consult with more than one lawyer. In fact, if the judge said four I would follow his orders....

Is possible to be convicted of a DUI and be unaware of it?
Today I received a letter from the Dept of Homeland Security that my license had be revoked due to a DUI conviction in Feb of 2012 and that I could reapply for my license on April 17, 2013. I have never been arrested for a DUI or ticketed for the same. I have retained insurance, renewed my registration and license and obtained a professional healthcare license, and passed background checks for work in a ER past that date. I was just accepted to medical school starting in August and am afraid my status with them will be negatively affected by this. Can I be convicted with a DUI without ever being stopped for an alcohol related issue or ever receiving notification of said offense?
No. This sounds like a mistake. You should call the phone number listed on the letter you received and explain you...
Possible DUI but no indication of blood testing from medical records, case to be presented to grand jury
I had a vehicle accident with property damage. There was a beer can in the vehicle at the time of the accident and a loaded gun (I have a carry permit). I was flown to a trauma center. No records from the hospital show any BAC testing. I have not been arrested, and the officer who worked the accident is presenting this to a grand jury. My friends say that I was sober when I left their home just 20 minutes before the accident. I do have a history of passing out, but this has not ever been investigated medically. 1.) Is it typical for BAC blood testing to occur without it showing up on a patient's medical records? Also, 2.) If there is sufficient evidence of DUI, why hasn't the officer just arrested me instead of going to the grand jury?
The reason why there have been no charges is the state is gathering evidence, and presenting it to the grand jury. The...
