I just received a dui in independence, Kansas but wasnt read my rights when arrested.
I received a D.U.I and the arresting officer didn't read me my rights when i was put in handcuffs. I also did a field tests and a breathalyzer when i was in the station. Will this hold up in court? I also asked them at 4 separate times if i was under arrest to 3 different officers which all said yes each time. Any help is very appreciated.

Will i still loose my license even though it's been 9 months since my dui arrest?
I was arrested for a dui last july but continued to be incarcerated up until January of this year. Was given time served for the charge and was released. I still have my license and they are still showing valid with the g.a. dds. It appears the court hasn't sent it in to dmv. is it possible me serving that time detered the court from sending it in to the dmv? I have recently moved back to kansas and have already transfered my g.a license to a kansas license..
Incarceration has nothing to do with your license. Sounds like you got lucky, regarding your license anyway.
Appeal DUI in Kansas after conviction? Lawyer dropped the ball.
DUI occurred in 2012, hired a lawyer, literally hadn't seen or spoke to lawyer until 2014 IN THE COURTHOUSE right before court, ended up on probation and lawyer advised we would appeal, I was to pay $1700+ before the appeal would be filed, asked to talk about it before I pay, never heard back, 6 months later had court again, appeal still not filed, judge allows 2 more weeks to file, lawyer advised of date I needed to have him paid up by, went to his office that day but doors were locked and no one was home. Appeal never got filed, I spent 5 days in jail, and I paid $4,500 to a guy I met TWICE and literally, not figuratively, but literally did nothing. Can I file an appeal on my own even though it's "too late"? I would defend myself as multiple procedures were botched by officer
The criminal justice system needs to have finality. If you missed the appeal deadline you probably gave lost your right...
Charged with DUI but was essentially sleepwalking from narcolepsy medicine. I did not consciously choose to drive. Help!!!
I have been disabled for 12 years for narcolepsy and depression and I don't drink alcohol ever. I Went to a friends house to spend The night and had two drinks in four hours. I then put my pajamas on and took my narcolepsy medicine to go to bed. I did not fall asleep right away like I should have so I essentially blacked out but was still awake (RX has same ingredients as date rape drug) and have no memory of anything that happened. My friend said that I got angry and wanted to go home and he tried to stop me but I was acting crazy and he couldn't stop me. I was pulled over and tested for a DUI and arrested and brought to jail. I have no memory of any of this so how can I be held responsible for driving when I was not even conscious. I did not choose to drink and drive.
You need to speak with a criminal defense attorney who can relay your medical condition to the prosecutor along with...

Drug testing costs in diversion program
i am currently in a diversion program for a first time DUI charge in Johnson county , ks. During my first meeting with my diversion officer, they asked me to have a drug test done for 25 bucks at a lab corp. I understand they will ask me to have these tests done at times throughout the 1 year diversion. I am wondering how often on average do they ask to do it? I figure worse case would be if they asked at every single monthly meeting, which would be 12 tests max or 300 bucks for the year. Could it possibly be more than this? Less? I know everyone is different, just curious what a typical experience is like for someone. I have been in the program for a couple months, already have all my classes done, so these drug tests would be my only remaining costs.
The best defense is to always be clean and sober then you don't have to worry especially if they call you in for an...
