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.

The dwi are in kansas. I have not touched acholal in 5 or six years. So if there is a way to get the 4 years reduced or not even get it at all. I can talk to a judge if i have to.

Good morning. I have a friend who was driving under the influence while getting home.
Good morning. I have a friend who was driving under the influence while getting home. he managed to get home safe but hit a car badly while trying to park in the parking. No-one was there or was hurt. He went home to call his insurance while the police came. they asked him to do a breathalizer test which he declined. They then took him to the post and I think took him pictures and suspended his license and all and I think they gave him a DUI and a court appearance date. He is an international student who had never had any accident, or anything. Only one speeding ticket back in 2009. Since then he has been clean. He is currently out of status (after a Bachelor Degree in 2012) but he is studying his GMAT in order to start his MBA in the Fall. How bad is it?
How bad it is depends on many factors, primarily the results of any testing that he may have submitted to voluntarily...

Good question. This is certainly one for an experienced criminal defense attorney in Kansas to answer. Good luck to you.
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...
