The person in the store never saw me drink and never saw me drive. As soon as I was backing out of the parking spot the cop stopped behind me. The cop did not say he was pulling me over for a traffic violation. The person in the store was never called over to identify me. Can a traffic stop occur because of heresay? After I was taken into custody at the police station the blood test did show I was over the limit. The cop did not say I was breaking any traffic laws nor was anything wrong with my car. Can a judge dismiss this because there was no probable cause for the stop.
It sounds like the officers did not have any legal cause for the stop. A witnesses statement can be sufficient if...

No prior criminal record. Currently I'm represented by the public defender. My two attorneys say they don't believe the DA knows about the other case (they both think I have no crim. record with no pending cases). In essence I'm being offered two different first time DUI offenses. Is this right? If I plead in one, will I immediately have a DUI and then when pleading on the second be pleading to a "second time DUI". My attorneys appear not to know the answer to this question. Thank you.
This kind of thing can happen. Generally it happens when the second DUI is on top of the first and both DUI's are in...
I received a DUI on June 30, 2014. Court date was November 6, 2014. I have not received any papers from the Courts to date. Is this common? Has anyone seen or experience a client in my situation and finally did receive court papers? Thank you.
Yes. This is a lot more common than you think. I assume you went to your court date and they told you there was no...
I was given a temporary license to drive on but do I need to ask for a DMV hearing in both states? my bac was a .15 and I do not plan on returning to CA for the administrative hearing.
The administrative hearing on the DUI needs to be requested in California, not AZ. It can get a bit complicated if you...
