I was charged with a DUI last night.
I was involved in an accident. It was the other person's fault. But I did received a ticket for "not slowing down to avoid accident" Which makes no sense. I do not think the test results matter because I drank liquor at the Scene AFTER the crash. I just waited in the car actually and drank wine port.The police did arrive and it said on the ticket that they noted I had wine in my hands when they arrived. I have a jeep and the damage didn't really look to bad, (her car looked totaled) . I didn't know how to handle the situation. I was also drinking before I got into the jeep. But I believe it was the wine I drank at the scene that put me over the limit.
Report this to your auto carrier and hire a criminal attorney. Do not post more admissions online.
Is this a legal ticket?
My fiance got arrested on a dui in my car. I was not present and had no knowledge of the event, but the officer issued me a ticket via my fiance to show up in municipal court stating that I knowingly loaned my car to an intoxicated driver to drive on public streets. Is it illegal for him to issue a document stating that I knew when I had no idea
Yes, it's a legal ticket. Whether you are guilty or not is a different question. Hire a lawyer and fight it if you don'...

I got a dui while out of state.Home state says I was revoked and must now meet its rules
The state where I received a dui says I met all requirements and can drive. Though Illinois, which issued the dui suspension, says it notified Nevada that the suspension was lifted Nevada continues to show a revocation on my license and refuses to rescind it. I tried to get a license in Illinois but Illinois won't allow me to have one until Nevada clears the record. Nevada says it won't clear the record and I cannot get a license in Nevada until I meet its rules even though I don't want a license in Nevada. What to do?
you need to speak to an attorney in Nevada that will handle that suspension. It would help if you got all your...
What are the outcomes for not completing an alcohol eval. after being sent to court and getting an extension to complete it?
I have missed 3 alcohol eval's and because of it was sent to court by my case worker. The judge gave me an extension to get it done by a certain date and i was still unable to get it done. It has nothing to do with me being oblivious and showing disregard for the law but rather because of my inability to be able to afford the money to pay for it due to saving money to pay off court fines as im a full time student and work just part time. The DUI charge is back from April and it has been almost a year since my last DUI hearing(June). I had a highly reputable lawyer in the area to help me with the case but am trying to avoid going back to him as again money is an issue for me. Im a smart kid who is doing everything i can to be somebody but im afraid the judge will think and act otherwise.
Apparently you are a smart kid but not smart enough to know how high your risk is becoming after missing your court...
