If the driver admits that she was actually driving and we switched seats will my charges be dropped?
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...
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....
If a DUI in NV is reduced to a Wreckless Driving 2 years ago, will that negatively affect a DUI in VA (no other convictions) ?
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...

I am under 21 and i got arrested for DUI, could i get any legal advice on the possible outcome of my case?
I got DUI in Virginia, I was pulled over because i "barely stopped" at the stop sign. The reason officer was patrolling there, because someone reported gun shots. He suspected me being the one that fired a shot, and used my "traffic violation" as a probable cause to pull me over. He asked me if had drank and i said I had "two beers", he told me to step out the vehicle and he made me take field sobriety tests in which im very bad at because of my balance, I agreed to a breathalyzer test and got .11(BAC). As minor information, I will be turning 21 in a week, and my arraignment is right after my birthday, i do not know if that will have an effect on the case. The time when i got pulled over was about 2am, and i was pulled over in an area that i wasnt very familiar with because it was far.
There are several attorneys who will talk to you and give you advise about your case. The AVVO find a lawyer tool is an...
How many years will my 1st in 2001 & 2nd in 2006 DUI convictions both in Florida will show up in a criminal background check?
I recently moved to Virginia and I am currently looking for a job. I was curious if my DUI's in Florida will be an issue for me still as far a criminal background checks. The 2 DUI's are outside of 5 years of each other.
Forever. If the clerk transmitted to Virginia through the compact, they will bed there until the end of time.
