Yes, you absolutely should get an attorney. You should probably also check into treatment. Alcohol abuse is one thing,...
The reasons for being pulled over each time were for minor traffic violations.
JAIL. Lots and lots of jail. 3 offenses within 3 years in El Paso County and you will be extremely lucky to only get 6...
I just found out recently from my children that while their mother was on probation for her DUI, she had them blow in the interlock "multiple" times in the mornings so she could drive them to school. She told them it was because she just used mouthwash and it would make the interlock go off. The truth is, she drinks so much at night, she's still drunk in the morning. What can be done at this point given it's hearsay from my children and also in the past (about 1 year ago)? Is it punishable given the lack of evidence? My children are 15 and 17 now. Thanks
If the mother of your children still has a drinking problem, why not contact your local mental health center to see how...
My boyfriend was pulled over and arrested in Colorado for suspicion of a DUI. He refused field sobriety test and a breathalyzer, so they drew his blood (do not know the results of the test yet). He works in a field that requires him to have a CDL license to drive company equipment, if he loses that he loses his career and livelihood. He would do pretty much anything to keep his license and his career. What are his options?
The response focuses so much on details here that you haven't given. Best bet is to hire an expert lawyer in Denver in...
I was charged with DUI/DUI per se for drinking a beer inside of my parked car. We had our doors open for airflow with our legs sticking out and my keys were in my pocket. The officer, who rode up to the side of my car on a bicycle, wrote in his police report that I had the keys in the ignition. He flat out LIED! This officer was a complete jerk from the beginning of the ordeal. They cuffed me, didn't read Miranda rights to me, and took back to the police station where I blew a 0.105 BAC. My friend (and witness) who was in the car with me when this happened wrote a statement re-emphasizing that the keys were NOT in the ignition. How can they convict me of a DUI if it's mine and my friend's word against a cop's word?
Simply put, because the jury gets to assess the credibility of any witness and they believed the officer over you and...
I have paperwork but nothing has implied revocation yet in the paperwork. From what I understood from the conversation before I decided on the method of testing, because I took a blood test I was able to hold on to my driver's license for now.I got my driver's license back before being dismissed from the hospital and have been checking the mail daily because of my friend's advice but have yet to receive any other news. It's only been roughly two weeks but I'm feeling increasingly nervous because I am told I have to request a DMV hearing using the notice within a week or face not having a chance to try and get it back. I am also concerned about what may happen if it gets lost in the mail or sent to the wrong address because I moved recently and gave them a different address from my license.
First and foremost, seek the advice and consultation of an experienced DUI attorney, not a friend. You need to make...
