Arrested for DUI. I was weaving (dropped items in the car and weaved) and also failed portions of the field sobriety test (eye test and one balance test). I was extremely nervous. Never experineced anything like this before. No alcohol and no illegal drugs in my system but I do take 20 mg of paxil daily. I told the trooper but do not know if he recorded this information or added it to his report for testing to use against me. Will the blood test look for this prescription med when testing? I have read it is possible to have a DUI arrest enforced even when prescribed medication is taken in its prescribed dosage.
It's doubtful they would detect the Paxil unless they specifically looked for it. In my experience, Paxil does not...
Grandkids Mom going to trial for 3rd DUI in a 16 mths- just got custody of her kids from DCS - will she get out of this too
It is her 3rd DUI in 16 months - she refused the "deal" and now has court / trial next week. She has been running wild for 3 years - walked out on all 4 children ages 2-6 and puts on a great front in court... she always seems to get out of everything... failed drug tests while on probation, no place to live, bounces kids all over the place but DCS wanted to keep giving her chances.. meanwhile she got off probation in April, for the 2 DUI's and got 1 DUI and 2 driving on revoked in a few months - she never installed her interlock and continues to still drive the kids around... how do people like her keep avoiding jail and what can be done so she has consequences before she hurts her kids or others in her path....DCS was certainly was no help. if convicted, how long till she goes to jail
I doubt she'll walk away from this. Keep in mind though that we are criminal defense attorneys here and not...
Will a previous reduction of DUI to reckless driving from 8 years ago be held against me for my current DUI charge in TN.
Previous DUI reduction was in Nashville, current DUI was in Tullahoma. I did not consent to the test for the first charge from 8 years ago and did not consent to the blood test this time either, however the officer obtained a warrant and blood was drawn. I performed the standard 3 roadside tests and the officer even said that obviously you are not slurring your words or falling down drunk but I believe you may be over the legal limit. The blood test will likely show that I was over the limit and there is a possibility that another substance may show up as well. My goal is just to retain my driving priviledges as i am pharma rep and drive for my job. If i obtain a very good DUI lawyer what are my chances of possibly being lucky enough to get another reckless plea. Any advice greatly appreci
Yes and no. The good thing about the prior reduction is that the current DUI cannot be classified as a DUI 2nd Offense,...
Was arrested for DUI in TN and refused chemical test although the officer obtained a warrant and I had to take one anyway. I feel that the results will show that I was over the legal limit and my also show another chemical in my system as well. I was told the blood test could take 4-6 months to come back and was wondering if it was possible with a good DUI attorney to plea down to a lesser charge such as reckless driving before the results of the test come back.
Yes. When I was a prosecutor, I would routinely plea cases before the blood was back. Will a DA do so with a prior...
