I got arrested for an DUI refusal in Indiana but live in Illinois. What should I expect in the coming Months?
Background is clean with no prior arrests, but 1 speeding and 1 seat-belt ticket. Refused to take PBT (portable breathalyser test) then was offered sobriety test on dotted line into on-coming traffic (told officer I would prefer not to do it into on-coming traffic). Placed into squad car, refused PBT again. Transported to jail, refused again, processed and placed into holding. Was never read Miranda Rights (are they just implied with a DUI refusal?) Blew 0.00 when allowed to blow a few hours later after bail was posted.
You really should retain an attorney in IL to help you through this -- there are not only criminal consequences, but...
I got a zero tolerance, illegal consumption, and improper lane usage ticket. Will I be able to get them dropped off my record?
I had only had a few sips of a drink at a friends house about a couple hours before that and felt completely fine to drive. At the scene, I blew a .094, and then I blew a .081 at the station. This is my first time getting in trouble for under aged drinking or receiving any traffic ticket. I know of some friends who have gotten DUI and illegal consumption tickets dropped by taking alcohol or driving classes so I didn't know if my tickets could be dropped in a similar manner, especially with these being my very first offenses.
The ZT goes on your record in 46 days and you had more than a few sips if you blew .094. That's high enough to be...
I was arrested for "leaving the scene of an accident" back in 2005, at this time I was also written up for possession of cannabis. Court was finally done in 2007, which shows on my driving abstract a 3 year revocation. It now seems that An underage drinking ticket (from almost 10 years ago), Is what is keeping the sos from overturning the revocation. I have since went to treatment and got an "investigative evaluation" I'm now wondering if I was too honest with the evaluator, as there is a lot of use history the sos would otherwise not know. before i went to the treatment provider, i had an informal hearing and was advised that if sent off to Springfield depending on who reviewed it, I may get my license back, or I may get denied, and if denied it would be 3 mos more, he didn't send it off.
Go speak with an attorney who is experienced in SOS hearings and drivers license reinstatements.

I received three tickets about a month and a few more a week ago. Now all my tickets are basically put together.
It depends whether the judge runs the sentence concurrent or consecutive (together or separate). It is a class B...
I recently lost a judgment on a 2nd DUI bench trial, and want to file for an appeal or new trial. Please see below.
There was no breath test. My field sobriety tests were not perfect, but I performed fairly well. During the tests, my contact lenses fell out. I have -7.5+ vision. (Very poor). I was also suffering from a cold and watery eyes that contributed to the lenses falling out. (Have prescription records to prove that). I also stepped on a rock, and I brought that to the attention of cop. During the video portion of the stop, my driving is perfect. For some reason, the judge believed what happened before and after the video than what he saw on the video. During the final deliberation of judgment, the judge remarked if I can see a rock, then my vision was not an issue. He acted as a judge and medical expert. Medical records were not summoned. Do I have ground to ask for appeal / or new trial ?
There is no way to tell from your posting and in a case like yours even a review of the court file might not answer...
