Was on prob. in richmond in. for dui. I left in. there is a warrant for me. How much jail time will I do if I turn myself in?
I am a florida resident and got the dui while in richmond. I served 16 days in jail there and received 6 months probation. I left richmond and returned home to florida. I don't want this hanging over me, if I return to richmond and turn myself in how much jail time will I do? also, after I do the time will I then be done with this dui charge and be able to return home to florida?
You best bet is to contact an attorney in the Richmond area, explain your situation and what you'd like to have happen,...
Can a person defend themselves against OWI charges if they don't have the resources (money) to do so?
I was charged and arrested for a first offense OWI in Indiana not too long ago. I hired a lawyer to help me with the case but he is telling me that without spending between $7,000 and $10,000 I would not be able to hire a toxicologist or have money required to cover the deposition and witness fees to obtain facts to defend my case. A plea bargain was presented that I don't think is fair: jail for 7 days or a three month class, one of which I cannot drive to and from, nor could I redeem my license until after the course is completed. I don't live in the place I was arrested, but an hour away thus making that class pretty much an invalid option. Since jail would be bad, are there no ways to defend oneself without having to be wealthy. I would just like to get the plea to be more reasonable
You should consult an attorney in your jurisdiction to see if you qualify for the appointment of a public defender.
I was driving home a few days back when I was stopped for what the officer said was 'driving through a barricade'. He said there was a tree down across the road from a storm and asked me why I did that. I didn't see a barricade, it was night, and it was pouring rain. This is not a city street where you can take the next street over to go past either, this is a town road where the next detour is miles down the road. Anyways, The officer said he smelled alcohol and had me do the field tests, it's still pouring mind you. I don't want to go into many more details right here, but bottom line I was charged with an OWI, 2 charges actually.
Two charges because they can. You need a local DUI/DWI lawyer, now. You can lose your license before you even get to...

I was arrested for a DUI due to failing field sobriety testing, but passed the breathalyzer at the jail. Can I be convicted?
After being pulled over for speeding the officer suspected alcohol use so I was administered the basic field sobriety tests, including a portable breathalyzer. Upon the judgment of the officer, including the portable breathalyzer results, I was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving. At the county jail I was administered another breathalyzer test on a large machine by a certified chemical test operator, not the arresting officer. The machine failed to read my alcohol level and the paperwork says N/A as the concentration. From what I could gather the machine was malfunctioning. My questions: Can I be convicted of DUI on the field sobriety testing alone? Are the inconclusive test results at the jail on the official machine enough to account for reasonable doubt in court?
You can be convicted based upon the field sobriety and roadside observations alone. You need to contact a local DWI...
