I received a D.U.I and the arresting officer didn't read me my rights when i was put in handcuffs. I also did a field tests and a breathalyzer when i was in the station. Will this hold up in court? I also asked them at 4 separate times if i was under arrest to 3 different officers which all said yes each time. Any help is very appreciated.

I got a DUI last night and was also charged with leaving the scene of an accident. They say someone called and reported I hit a building even though there is no damage to my car or the building.

A couple weeks ago I was pulled over in my driveway with my car off for being reported as a suspect who ran into the side of McDonalds and drove off. I was charged with DUI, leaving scene of accident, faliure to report accident. I did not hit McDonalds and have witnesses that attest the damage to my car was prior and nothing is new. He also stated on on report he saw me driving and on another that I was parked in my driveway, so his story is messed up. I have hired a lawyer to fights this. Can I get out of the charges? If I have witness that attest to no new damage and also him having his stories wrong on the police report? My enighbors even said he pulled up after I was in the driveway for several min and my car was off. I never stated I was the one driving either.

I got a DUI 9/13 in KS. I filed within 10 days for a hearing with DMV. I won hearing with DMV based on evidence that the cop didn't fill out form properly, but changed his copy before mailing to DMV to be correct for them. Therefore they dismissed any admin actions against my license. I then plead guilty to my DUI 5/14. On 9/15/14 i received a letter dated 9/11/14 that my license was suspended effective 9/11/2014-10/13/2014 and then 6 months interlock device. (nothing like giving me a notice, I'm glad I wasn't pulled over from 9/11-9/15). They already "technically" took my license once, they just could not actually take it because I won my DMV case. Is it right for them to take it anyways? what was the point in filing a hearing if they took anyways. they can't take twice??
You are correct in that they cannot take your license twice for the same driving event. However in order to have no...

On Sunday I got pulled over in my driveway by a cop saying it was reported I ran my car into McDonalds and that I had been drinking. My car was off in my driveway. They arrested me for DUI after failing a breath test. My question is there is no damage to my car or the building and no cop saw it. Can I get out of this? I don't see how they can prove I did beyond a reasonable doubt and He says he saw me driving but I think he is lying and I have hired a lawyer to try and fight this. Do I stand a chance? If he really didnt see me driving and video shows that then I dont see how I can get a DUI or get leaving the scene of an accident if they have no proof I hit the building.
An officer does not have to witness a crime if there is someone else who did who will serve as a complaining witness....
