I am a middle aged woman, do not drink very much or very often and was pulled over. My husband was intoxicated, argued with the officer and I was deemed drunk. I felt antagonized by the officer and confused as to why he was arresting me as I was not intoxicated. I thought if I took the breath test I would only make things worse. When the office told me to sign the paper saying I was refusing the test, I did not read the paper as I did not have my glasses and thought the officer was telling me the complete content of what I was signing. Is there any way to keep my license. I have never been arrested, have no recent traffic violations and need to drive to make a living.
Probably not. Ignorance of the law is not a defense or excuse to prohibited conduct. The fact that you signed the...
I got arrested for the first time in my life somewhere in CO (only have had a couple speeding tickets and nothing else prior) and I am twenty-five. I was spooked as I passed a Sheriff going the opposite way when I saw him turn around on the road a hundred yards behind me and I turned into a driveway which gave him suspicion to follow me. The Sheriff arrested me on DUID for being high on Meth and false plates on my car. I had insurance. I went to jail for the weekend until I could post bail. He said he could smell it and I agreed to take a UA at the station. He had me do a test where I stood with my feet together outside, head tilted way back and tell him when 30 seconds was up. They searched my car without consent, but I had nothing on me or in my car. This is first time arrested.
I'm not sure I see a question here. You might want to rephrase.
I had 2 vodka sodas on an empty stomach.I have never been in trouble prior to this incident.

Does the time between my most recent DUI and the previous ones matter?
To some judges, yes and to other judges, no. You need to retain a criminal defense attorney who can argue that you were...
If my breathalyzer two tests were 15% difference .109 and .094 in 5 min span then is that challengable in court and with the DMV
first DUI and officer was certified. I know there is a law in California if its .2 in difference then the tests are negated.
More factors exist than just the result number of the breathalyzer. The officer's observations of you at the stop,...
I have a warrant for my arrest and I am a student, could I get a ankle bracelet so I can go to school and not be in jail?
I got a DWAi a year ago and I have not complied with my probation like I should have. I start school in January and don't want to miss any school because of jail.
It is possible depending on your circumstances. You should call an attorney to assist.
