I was driving and in an accident on Saturday night. I was conscious after the accident but taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure afterwards. At the hospital the doctor came in and took blood prior to the police arrival. I was told the sample was to make sure I was ok - the accident was on the severe side. Do the police have access to that blood sample for testing? When the police did show up they never mentioned the sample or anything along those lines of testing.
Yes, they have the right to that sample

Under testimony, owner states that she associated this smell with the work of cutting metal that had occured immediately prior. The workers also testified that there was a burning or burnt metal smell while the work was being done, as is normal. They testified that they smelled no odor upon leaving. *more*

Is this a hypothetical question or did this really happen? If it's a hypothetical, I would recommend rather that the...
I was told that my first DUI would be taken off my record after I completed the alcohol program. Am I still considered a first time offender in CT if I got a DUI in RI recently? Do i face jail time with an out of state DUI?

no prior DUIs so this is a first, but on probation through the state supervision unit, no longer through local level. Will they violate and if so, is there a way to avoid jail?
You should set up a free consultation with a qualified DUI Defense attorney to discuss your case.
