Jail time was waived because I got arrested for driving under a suspended license and it wasn't suspended and had to do jail time for that. Got 40 hrs community service and one year prabstion.
You will probably have your probation revoked and be sent to jail.
My son was given a breath test in the field to determine "if he had been drinking" He was arrested after this test,jailed, but
never given a blood test,urine test or another breath test. He asked the officer at the scene( where he was given the breath test) what his level was and the officer replied that it did not give a certain level, only "whether he had been drinking or not". How do we find out what his actual level was?
The handheld breath test in the field does give a numerical value, but it is not admissible in court. All the officer...

Feb 14 2012 wife arrested DUI Drugs, Rx therapeutic levels Can we fire attny ask for retrial as we never got our day in court?
Can we fire attny ask for retrial as we never got our day in court? Attny hired went to court once, arresting officer was no show. Attny never told us of new court/trial date, now sentencing is Tue 9/17 in Augusta GA. $650 fine, 24 hrs jail, 40 hrs Comm. Svc., Risk Reduction, 4 month lic suspension for a seemingly innocent mistake. Has taken meds for years with no bad effects until that night. All we said was no jury trial, but in turn we had no trial at all that we knew of till sentencing date. Attny keeps saying dashcam video is damning, I agree it was bad to her defense. Ambien was 1 drug, but NY Times article says it’s being misdosed since arrest: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/11/health/fda-requires-cuts-to-dosages-of-ambien-and-other-sleep-drugs.html?_r=1&)
The defense is related to INVOLUNTARY INTOXICATION. This defense is available, but likely only determinable by a trial....
I am a UK Citizen and I have been charged with DUI whilst on holiday in Georgia. Do I have to return for the Court Case?
Hi, I am a UK Citizen and was charged with DUI in Augusta, Georgia last week whilst on holiday. I refused the inhaler test as I was informed by the officer this will help get me out of prison sooner. I am now back in England and have been given a court a case dateat the end of August. Will I have to attend this in person? If I dont attend this can I hire a lawyer to represent me and plead guilty? However, I am worried if i do the latter, I will be barred from entering the USA. I can do either option but want to ensure the final outcome doesnt result in me being denied entry to US in the future. Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
1. You need a lawyer and you need one quickly as you only have 10 business days to file a request for an...
Friend was arrested for a DUI in Richmond County GA 4 or so years ago and was sentenced to 2 years probation. He completed over a year of his probation and then paid off the remainder of his probation in full right before moving to FL. He never informed his PO of the move and a warrant was issued for his arrested. He was recently picked up on another VOP for another crime in GA and after serving the time for that VOP he was just transferred to the Richmond County jail and now has an order to show cause/state ct. What does this mean and what is he facing for the old DUI?
Not quite enough info for clear understanding, but I am in Augusta and I will provide a telephone conference should you...
At the beginning of this year I got arrested for a DUI and speeding, I blew a .083. Just the other day I got caught at a traffic stop and they gave me a ticket for driving with a suspended license (I was not arrested). First question, is there any way I can pay this ticket before the court date and be done with it? Also, I've been to my DUI arraignment and plead not guilty. We are working on getting it dropped to reckless. Since my sentencing is still pending, will this ticket directly affect that case or the courts decision in that case? I'm not sure what's going to happen, but I really don't want to go to jail because I'm a full time student.
Do not plead guilty. If you do, you will face further license suspension. This may have an adverse affect on your DUI...
