What should I do?
I was pulled over for rolling over a stop sign. The officer conducted a field sobriety test, and I failed the test. The officer then instead of giving me a DUI gave me underage consumption on the ticket along with disregarding the stop sign. What should I expect once I go to court, and what course of action should i take?
You need a criminal defense lawyer.
Went to arraignment. Just went to my court case received no information about the dui and was handed another date. Whats goin on
Flipped my jeep, cops came when i was outside of my jeep assessing the damage. They gave me the field sobriety test, went through each test about 3 times. Then he said i'm taking you in for a blood test. Test was given at the jail. I bailed out went to my arraignment and they told me to get a lawyer, said if i didnt have one by the court date i would be representing myself. Just today got back from my court date and they did not give me any information. It basically was the same as the arraignment and they gave me a court appointed lawyer and a new date 3 months down the line. Also received a letter from the dmv stating it was a property damage accident. Just confused why i have not received my b.a.c at either the arraignment or court today and why is the dmv calling it a property accident

How long should it take for my BAC results to come back from my blood samples?
I was arrested on August 18, 2014, and it is over 3 months later, and I, nor my lawyer, has heard anything back from my blood tests. Why would this be taking so long? Could my prosecutor be holding them? I'm interested because I think my BAC was probably close to 0.08 and potentially even slightly below. If my BAC comes back below 0.08, I assume all charges will be dropped.
Sometimes it takes several months to get the results of a blood test for BAC. Ask your attorney whether the amount of...
