I have a Florida license and was cited for refusal and dui in Virginia. Which is a better plea, take the refusal or the dui?
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.

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...

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...
