I was arrested for speeding and dui after field test. I took blood test. When released I was NOT given a citation or ticket.
I was instructed I was pulled over for just speeding. Field test went well. I have a fused spine and one leg longer than other.
Here in Georgia, even if you aren't issued a citation, an officer can still take out a warrant to prosecute.
Should I take the first offer?
My friend was arrested for driving on a revoked for a DUI in Tennessee. Her court appointed attorney said she should take the first offer from the DA, which includes jail time. I had a lawyer a few years ago who did NOT take the first offer and I got a better deal in my DUI case. But this is a driving on a revoked case. Plus, to take the first offer also means she will be put on PSI probation, a private company that tries to keep you coming back as long as possible. When I took my case upstairs, I was allowed to be put on state probation, which is much better and not as rigid or rule-crazy. Should she say no to the first offer and get the case taken upstairs? Is that possible in a driving on revoked case?
Ordinarily, the government is required to show that someone knew they were driving on a revoked license. This means...

What happens if I move to Chicago with a pending DUI charge to Chicago?
I was arrested under suspicion of a dui on 1/1/15. The case has been continued two times because the arresting officer failed to show up and the judge didn't want to dismiss. He then set another court date out in October. I'm moving to Chicago the beginning of May. What happens if I do get charged and I'm a resident of Chicago in terms of consequences? The DA won't budge or accept a plea bargain for wreckless driving so I can get this over with before I move. He's young and on a power trip so maybe I'll have luck with the new DA in October. Either way I'd like to prepare for the worst, any insight to how this will play out is very much appreciated.

Help needed on DUI and false statements. I am more concerned about my false statements than my DUI. Please help me.
1. Written report of accident 2. DUI, reckless driving 3. False reports(, I started telling stories like ‘car might have been stolen’, ‘I am not the one who crashed car’ etc. ) My questions are, 1. Is it typical for cops to charge under many charges like above 2. Does judge typically sentence me on DUI or all of the above 3. I don’t think cops told me about mirandize. Can cops still use whatever I told? Do they typically have video recorded? As far as I know, it didn’t look like they recorded anything 4. My bail was 800$ and I don’t have incidents earlier. Based on these facts, what would be typical punishment(I am in TN)? 5. Regarding property(a bank) damage, bank hasn’t contacted anyone yet. is that okay if I wait for someone to raise about it or should I have to contact bank/police?
Providing a false police report to an officer is a felony in TN. A DUI is a Class A misdemeanor but carries mandatory...
