When I got pulled over I refused to blow. After I got to the station I blew twice. The first time it did not take and he told me to blow harder so I did. After I blew it beeped and he told me to have a seat. They gave me a hard copy of what I thought was my BAC. From there this guy made me take several pictures over and over and thought it was funny. I got irritated. I sat down in the waiting area and that guy brought me ANOTHER ticket and made me retake my pictures again. I went to my attorney with my papers and it says that I refused to blow but I didn't. Even after I blew and I asked the guy what the number meant. They told me to have a seat. I am screwed over because now it says I refused but I blew twice. I'm in tears. What am I supposed to do now? Help!
You were probably deemed a refusal because you id not give adequate breath samples to provide sequential blows. If the...
I got pulled for failure to maintain lane. The officer made me walk in a straight line UP HILL on black gravel. I got a DUI... when I got to the station I blew a .07. I don't feel like I was judged fairly before he even arrested me. Needless to say I am already dealing with another DUI case and I wanted to get your thoughts on this case to see what you think will happen because I am afraid. Don't they normally have to give you the eye test first? Is there anything I can do? I have a lawyer for both of the cases. This one is is before my other case which i will ask about later. Talk about total anxiety... :(
I mean this nicely, but why are you asking us when you have a lawyer? The 0.07 is extremely good news for you. While...

My case is complicated, But i have had 3 DWI convictions. The first one was apparently not reported to DMV (2001) and It cause a ripple effect to my record sending me into a perm suspension. upon my hearing i was granted a conditional license for 3 years and IID for that time , on top of that an additional 4 years because of the repercussion of the "re stacking" of my case and record. The judge originally imposed the sentence of 18 mos probation ( completed). 1 year IID, restitution and 4 year revocation. So i have case. i have been sober for 6 years and all i want is my life back. i feel like i am being punished twice for the same crime. i have more details
There is no way to get around NC DMV's IID restrictions. If it is ordered to be installed for a specific period of time,...
my brother had liability insurance on car and I had non owners liability. The police only took the drunk guys statement before they arrested him. The officer never came to hospital to take my statement. The drunk driver claimed I didn't stop at stop sign (I did and ticket got thrown out) but he didn't know he had hit a car, but remembers he was going "speed limit" (35) and never tried to break. Now his insurance is trying to make me pay for his child's broken leg over 60 thousand, and his insurance is only covering one thousand of mine and nothing for the totaled car. How is this legal?? he blew over twice the NC limit .18. The district attorney is going after him for a list of things but I need help recovering my losses not his for his negligence and (4kids) child endangerment!
