This is my second DUI offense. I was arrested because I blackout and crash into the neighbors yard. I submitted to a blood test and it came out that my bac level was .08. I was restrained from the officers and was tackled resulting from bruises and cuts.
There may be lots of issues regarding your case that an attorney would have to find out about in the discovery process....
So my question is, do I have to go back into family court, or can I go to small claims court and just ask for the maximum amount of $5,000? My case was opened n ended at the other party's request.
What do you mean ended at the other parties request? As in, they "won"? If so, you may not be able to get Attorney fees....
Officer initiated stop just after midnight (a Sunday night/Monday morning) for my brights being on in my headlamps. After completing several field sobriety tests, the officer had me blow into a handheld alcohol screening device - no idea what brand or model. I blew .09, and then .07 two minutes later. I asked the officer if I was free to go - since my last breath test measurement was below the legal limit - to which he replied that I was not and that he was placing me under arrest and would be transporting me to the county jail's "drunk-tank" (he didn't use those exact words, nor did he inform read me my Miranda rights, but from what I have read here on Avvo this may be fairly common). I was not asked to submit to further testing of blood or breath. Wasn't this just a PAS device?
The PAS is admissible evidence, although the weight of the evidence can be questioned. They should have had you blow...

My vehicle broke down and the tie rod end broke so I left my vehicle on the side of a rural road. My husband picked me up and we went home he called a tow truck. I had a few glasses of wine at home we went back to meet the tow truck and the cops were there trying to find the owner of the vehicle. I was then placed under arrest for DUI. I wasn't in a great mood I was a bit rude but I did not understand how I could be arrested for DUI when I was not driving the vehicle drunk. I wasnt even inside the vehicle nor did I have the keys. Now my license is suspended and have no clue on how to proceed with this.
In order to convict you for DUI, they must prove that you were driving under the influence of alcohol or that you were...
I was recently pulled over for my license plate being on my windshield. The cop said he smelled marijuana, told me to get out of the car and did sobriety test on me. I was then later questioned (in which I told him I smoked an hour ago) and tooken to the Merced county jail for the night. My main concern is if I will do time in jail? Or if they are ways I can avoid jail time because I am a full time college student and also a part time worker
A first offense DUI, even if it's for being under the influence of marijuana, is not generally going to require real...
My husband got his first dui & was advised to plead down to a wet reckless. He passed the field sobriety but blew a .09. He was also driving on a suspended for a fta/ftp(which he has paid now). If the judge accepts his plea will he have to take dui classes & file an sr22?
Unfortunately, your husband or the judge dont really have a choice. The judge can't reduce the DUI to a wet and your...
