I got pulled over on suspicion of DUI. I passed FST, PBT, blew .000 BAC. I did have prescription ambien, but it was in the lower end of the therapeutic range. As of now, no conviction. I am worried about this affecting my military career.
Hire an attorney ASAP. You may be able to still do an independent blood test to quantify the amount of ambien in your...
I called Denver Health with a few questions about their consent form and DUI blood draws. I was under the impression that signing or not signing the consent form made a difference, but the lady I talked to says it doesn't matter - what matters is if DPD requests a blood draw and the person is receiving medical treatment they have to consent. This can't be right, can it?
I believe that you are right and the Denver Health person is wrong, IF the event dictating the draw is a standard DUI....

I passed every test he had, but I take prescription Ambien. There was ambien in my blood, at the lower range of the therapuetic level (80 ng). I have been on ambien for close to a year. I did not hit any objects, I did not fly off the road, and I was completely coherent and alert. The officer though argues that I was driving under the influence, that is impaired. I do not think I was impaired. I was not stumbling, my words were not slurred, I was not 'sleep driving', and, given how long I've been on ambien, I've built up such a tolerance that 'impairment' would be a moving target. I was going over the speed limit. Still- I was completely coherent and cogent during the entire time. The hospital staff that observed me also corroborated this, as did my landlord that was awake and saw me
Hire an attorney if you want to fight the charge and have a chance to avoid a conviction.
I was charged with a DUI in Aug. 2013 and was convicted in Feb. 2014. I have passed every test, completed all classes/community service, payments, etc. After 10 month being on prob. I may have failed a completely random UA for thc. I have read a lot and found people saying because it is my first offense since beginning probation, I will likely get a warning or increased random tests and meetings with my p.o. officer. Wondering and hoping this is accurate info. I have been compliant the whole time and we get along.
It depends. The judge may or may not cut you a break. Call your lawyer.
A group of my friends and I were caught on campus drinking. I was never given a citation, and it has never been mailed to me. The breathalyzer they used was also never calibrated. Because of this, I entered a not guilty plea. My trial is on Wednesday. Will I be found not guilty because of these two reasons?
If you are set for trial you will want to request all of the police reports to know what exactly the prosecution is...
