If the jail is not overcrowded, then you will spend 1/2 the days you were sentenced to fulfill: 13.
My friend was in a car that he owns but wasn't driving. There were a total of 4 occupants in the car. The person driving crashed into a pole. When the police arrived my friend's car was impounded and he was charged with a dui. He's gone to court only for his case to be postponed, twice. Why is this? And is there any chance of this getting dismissed since he wasn't driving?
I can't tell you if he will be found guilty or not. I can tell you that he did not violate the law. I can also tell...

I have completed all other requirements to get my restricted License including joined an approved 3 month program and SR-22 insurance.

I got stopped on the freeway on the suspicion of a DUI. I did the sobriety exams and breathalyzer (no alcohol). Upon questioning, I admitted to taking ecstasy 4 hours before I was stopped. My car was towed and I was taken back where I completed additional sobriety tests, then to a hospital for a blood test (no results yet). Then I was booked into custody and detained for 12 hrs. They returned my license. 1) Is there a way I can fight for my case even if I incriminated myself? I performed the DRE's sobriety exams well and am wondering if that will help 2) My car is registered under my parents who pay the insurance. Will the rates go up? Is there any way my parents don't find out it is from my DUI? 3) I have to appear in court in one month. Do I plead guilty? What do I do?
Just because you have ecstasy in your does NOT necessarily mean you were impaired. Too bad you got yourself arrested by...
