does the arresting officer have to be present in court in a dui case? because he wasn't and when I asked the judge, prosecuting attorney they totally blew me off? And another officer came in and said he was there for the prosecution and was not on seen or even working when the arrest happened in fact the only officer on duty was my arresting officer! And he was no where to be found not in the court or building! When brought to the attention again that I wanted to know if my arresting officer was supposed to be present I was again blown off! So what should I do? I thought I had the right to ask my arresting officer questions but the prosecutor flat out denied me of that! Do I have any rights on this and can I do any thing about it??
If you were at court for an appearance or an arraignment, then no the officer does not have to be there. If you pleaded...
An intoxicated woman was pulled ovr, charged with a DUI, and made a statement that resulted in a search warrant of an unrelated residence. Is it legal to obtain a search warrant on the statement of an intoxicated woman who was charged with DUI?
Sure, happens all the time. Clearly, even in her intoxicated condition she provided sufficient details that convinced...
20 of my classmates from my University were also given citations and do not know what whether it is better to pay the processing fees or to do community service/ other options in order to get it expunged faster.
There are benefits to both approaches. I think you would be best served to avoid the conviction and expungement...
A received a DUI a few months back in Morgantown WV, and was placed in the first timers program, which requires me to get an interlock placed in my car and take AA classes. I am currently living in NJ. How do I got about finding the classes in my state? What are the requirements, and can the classes be taken online? Thank you in advanced!
You can find local AA classes online by AA.org. My understanding of AA is that it is more of a meeting, and not really...
My husband was arrested for a DUI on September 18, 2010. Discrimination and harrassment were involved on the officer's part (I was in the car with him, so was a witness). We also have reason to believe the breathalyzer test was faulty/administered incorrectly/recorded innacurately and/or that the officer falsified evidence. Closely following the arrest, the officer was charged with harassment (of someone else, not us) and two counts of child molestation and fled the country with a warrant out for his arrest. (Sounds like a soap opera, right?) Our lawyer told us that now we just have to wait for a court decision in the officer's absence. But it's been over 4 years! How long can a court decision drag out?
Trust your lawyer. If the state takes no action for a period of time, your attorney may be able to get the case...

I was ticketed on the scene for suspected DUI after crashing my car. Blood was taken at the hospital, which was clean, and my DUI was dismissed in court. I was not aware that the DMV had suspended my license until AFTER the deadline to appeal. How can I get my license back without having to take a DUI class, since I never even had a DUI?
Have you been to the DMV yet with this quetion? Take along court documents showing the case was dismissed and that the...
