I have two DUI convictions in Illinois, and have been granted a RDP. The time from the last conviction has been over two years. I am wondering if my RDP from Illinois will be valid for the state of Missouri, as I am going to be moving to, and working in St. Louis. Any help is appreciated.
Illinois issued the permit on the basis you were an Illinois resident. Once you move to MO, you would have to check...
I blew a .79 at the station and the officer indicated that he would "let the state's attorney decide," whether or not to prosecute me. I only received a ticket for not signalling. Does this mean I will not be charged with DUI?
No, the citation does not eliminate the potential for the prosecutor to try for a DUI although the proofs would seem...
I was recently charged with a legal consumption of alcohol by a minor. I submitted a breathalyzer and blew a 0.02. The officer never showed me the reading. Also when asked how I did recieved vague answers like you passed. The only reason I know what I blew is because it was written on my ticket.
No. But get a lawyer who knows what he is doing, might be able to avoid a suspension of your license.
I recently lost a judgment on a 2nd DUI bench trial, and want to file for an appeal or new trial. Please see below.
There was no breath test. My field sobriety tests were not perfect, but I performed fairly well. During the tests, my contact lenses fell out. I have -7.5+ vision. (Very poor). I was also suffering from a cold and watery eyes that contributed to the lenses falling out. (Have prescription records to prove that). I also stepped on a rock, and I brought that to the attention of cop. During the video portion of the stop, my driving is perfect. For some reason, the judge believed what happened before and after the video than what he saw on the video. During the final deliberation of judgment, the judge remarked if I can see a rock, then my vision was not an issue. He acted as a judge and medical expert. Medical records were not summoned. Do I have ground to ask for appeal / or new trial ?

I got arrested for a DUI & Following to closely. I was diving a motorcycle and following my acquaintances because I did not know my way around that city. The officer went on to administer FST's which he stated that I failed. When he gave me the PBT it made me cough because I vomited not 15 minutes before they arrested me. (I did not mention I vomited but I have witness that can attest to this) On the sword statement, he said I refused to provide sample; however, on the sworn statement he put that my PBT read 0.163. Whilst in jail, I vomited again so they did not give me breathalyzer. And had to pee really bad so the officer ended up not taking a urine sample. (He said wait till you provide sample to pee.) While I was in my holding cell - I asked for a blood test. Which they didnottake
