Lake Ridge Law

I was stopped in Virginia and cited for dui and refusal. If they drop the DUI but convict on a refusal, it that a better situation than the reverse, drop the refusal and convict on dui? I want the best to keep my license as much in tact in Florida as possible. Thanks.
Prosecutors do not normally offer to drop the DWI in exchange for a refusal plea. That only happens when you have a...
I was sleep in the passenger seat, i was awaken by the driver screaming and yelling for us to switch seat and her sitting on my lap. I just slid over, I was intoxicated and had no idea what was going on. I slid over and that's when I saw the police behind us. i failed the breathalyzer and was arrested for DUI. She will not admit to driving. she has precious charges for driving with no license. (I was unaware). I have no idea what to do. I've never been in trouble before.
Unfortunately, if the car was still on when you switched seats the fact that she was driving before is irrelevant. The...
While leaving a party that was busted by the police a cop stopped me when I was leaving and told me to blow on a breathalyzer, I told him I hadn't been drinking. I actually had been but had only had one beer. I blew a .012 and apparently the legal limit is .015. When the officer who was filling out my paperwork he asked how much i blew to the officer that breathlyzed he said a .015 which I remember not being true at all.
Underage drinking is not legal. If your only defense is that the number the officer said you blew is inaccurate (i.e....
DMV sent a letter asking me to pay a reinstatement fee and get an FR-44. Called DMV and they said I have to pay and get the FR-44
Did you have a question? I'm not clear what you're asking.
Money is pretty tight. I was arrested for my first DWI, I blew .21. Since I blew a high BAC Will a court appointed attorney be able to get me out of jail time? And be able to reduce my sentence ?
It depends. Just like private attorneys, public defenders are a mixed bag. Most of them are among the best and most...
My father was driving back from work around 2am; he pulled over the car on the side of the road because he was not feeling well. He has an extensive history regarding his health which includes hearth attacks and cancer. He took half of an oxycodone, which is prescribed to him, five hours before. While resting on the side of the road, my father left the car running so he could have the heat running. An officer came and had him do the walk straight ling test, now my father just woke up and was already having pain. The officer arrested him but he was let go at the police office and was given a court date.
Many are surprised that one can be convicted of DUI even when stopped and sleeping in a car on the side of the road....
I'd like to know if a Wreckless Driving reduction from a DUI in NV will hurt me with a DUI arrest in VA? BAC was a .10. The officer waited almost 3 hours before giving breathalyzer, made me do the FST on uneven pavement in very cold weather and searched my car without asking. He found nothing but I was arrested and my car was towed. I'm concerned this may be considered my 2nd offense??
Only a prior DWI conviction can cause you to be convicted of a DWI second offense in Virginia. A prior reckless driving...
