Hinesville Law

I have been charged in the past for a DUI in NC, but not convicted. Just recently I received a DUI charge in GA, but there was also an accident. There was a stationary vehicle parked across a back country road at night. There was "proclaimed" minor injuries, but nothing visual. I blew well under .10 but higher than .08
The legal limit in Georgia is .08.
I recieved a dui 16 months ago while in the rangers, and was kicked out without any adverse actions. 13 months later 3 ID gave me a gomar while overseas and since then i have written an article 138 request for redress to solve some of the issues with my chain of command. I recived a call from my CSM telling me i was wrong for addressing the issues and I should not be promoted. He also informed me he was trying to flag me because i had a dui 16 months ago. Is this a reprisal and should these issues be dropped for being so old?
This sounds like something you really need to discuss with a JAG officer. Not many attorneys in here will be familiar...
My Husband was arrested for a DUI while sitting in the car with the keys in the ignition. He was not driving, nor was I even in the car. We were sitting in the parking lot of a restaurant, I was waiting outside the car and the cops showed up. They said because the keys were in the car its a DUI, again even though he was not driving and we were not leaving anywhere. He blew a 0.09 so hardly over the "limit." They never read him his rights for anything. Is this a DUI and can we fight this and win? He past the other tests they gave him and barley failed the breath test. This hardly seems fair. By the way he is also military if that make any kind of difference.

Although your question is related to a DUI, the informaton you are seeking is more in terms of military law. Therefore,...
I was dropped off by a designted driver I can't find the taxy company that drooped me off,But I have witness that heard and saw i was dropped off !
You can listen to your lawyer's advice.
I was approached by a cop while sitting in my car(keys out of ignition safely parked on a side street) , the police office said he smelled a strong odor of alcohol and asked me to perform roadside test's but I refused and instead was arrested and had my blood drawn. I went to my arraignment (didn't plea and charges not filed) and was told I would receive a letter if charges are filed by the da...I have checked with the county clerk and still no filed charges or loss of license(no dmv hearing) and i'm just wondering if it's normal to wait this long for formal charges? my attorney told me to just wait and i'm doing just that. Also no blood test results yet.
No it is not normal to wait this long for a DUI Accusation to be filed. The DA/Solicitor has 2 years to file an...
