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.
You may well be able to suppress some or all of the statements you made. This does not mean the case will have to be...
My boyfriend got a diversion program for DUI and he has a court date next week but he hasnt completed it..and 2 weeks ago he got another DUI in another county, they took him into custody and let him go that same day and now he has another scheduled DUI court date for this one on December 16th..what will happen to him? Will he go to jail when he goes to this last date? Or if he completes or not finishes his diversion will this affect his current charge?
The new case will almost certainly result in a revocation motion on the diversion. He is looking at a second time dui...
I got a DUI in August, I was sentenced earlier this month. My DL status still shows active on the check online and by ordering a copy. Today it still shows vaild but under the CDL parts shows a suspension for a year. I don't have a CDL. SHould i let them know about it? or keep my mouth shut and be thankful I they made an error?

Good evening. A couple suggestions: first, make sure to apply for your administrative hearing within the allotted time;...
My boyfriend got a DUI in Oklahoma last month. He was pulled over for speeding. He sprayed cologne in his mouth before the officer arrived at the window (I know, stupid, he didn't realize about the alcohol in the cologne). He was thinking the smell would cover up the beer smell. But the officer had him blow anyways. He blew 0.09. He told the officer about the cologne, however he still received a DUI and spent 12 hours in jail. Would it be possible for him to get a diversion? Its his first alcohol offense of any kind.
That is completely dependent on whether or not PTD exists for DUI in that jurisdiction. Here in Florida, I am only...
Is there any way I could drive a moped or electric/gas assist bicycle?
