If I pay my dui ticket of $2,267 will I still face jail time?
I was followed by a police officer to my house for about 10-15 mins. When I pulled in my yard and cut my car off he put the blue lights on me. I took the breathalyzer test and my bca level was .17 I was charged with DUI .16 or higher 1st offense I was arrested and fined 2,267. I was also charged with driving left of center and no dl and fined 237.00 a piece for those two tickets.
Willingness to pay the ticket isn't a guarantee that you won't face jail time. But I would encourage you to consider...

DUI probation violation question.
I was on probation for a reckless driving charge in GA (knocked down from DUI). Yesterday I received a DUI arrest in SC (I live in SC). What will most likely happen as a result?
If GA discovers the new arrest your probation will be violated. Typically, you are supposed to self report any law...
Should I fight my DUI case?
I was recently arrested for a DUI after being pulled over into my driveway. I admitted to the officer that I had two glasses of white wine (Pinot Grigio) that evening, but I refused to take a breathalyzer test. The police also suggested that they smelt drugs, but I do not consume drugs. I allowed them to search my vehicle and nothing was found, of course. The officer did not maranda me but did proceed to throw me onto the concrete and shove my face into the ground as he handcuffed me, I was still not read my rights. I am being charged with DUI and resisting arrest, but I'm not understanding how any of this will hold up in court, should I fight it?
You should absolutely fight it. No question about it.
Under the FOIA, does the tape of someone who followed me from a restaurant and falsely reported me drunk have to be given to me?
I was stopped and found not drunk or even questionably drunk. A stranger followed me, I am a 62 year old female and frightened. Do I not have the right to know her name? I feel slandered and scared of this unknown woman that chose to do this.
FOIA allows access to records maintained by the government. The restaurant does fall into that category, but the if...
DUI dismissed. Do I still have to do ADSAP for failure to submit to breathalyzer?
I was arrested in May of 2012. My case was dismissed by the Magistrate court because the officer was wrong in all aspects of the case and didn't want to press charges. I received a letter stating that I was able to have the DUI case expunged as well as any related charges, at no cost to me. Does that mean that I can have the refusal to blow dismissed or expunged also and avoid ADSAP?
You have 30 days to contest that refusal suspension. That suspension is separate from the criminal case in the...
Boyfriend got charged with DUI, he refused to take a breathalyzer, how can you help?
My boyfriend got pulled over for a DUI saturday night. The thing is the officer gave him a warning ticket for swerving in lanes, the only reason why he swerved was because we got food and it spilled and he was trying to clean it up He only had a beer, or two. He passed all the exams, and he refused to take a breathalyzer. The cops arrested him, and suspended his license. Why did the officer givr him a warning ticket for swerving in lanes and then arrest him? Is there anyway we can get out of this? He refused to take a breathalyzer, therefor technically they dont have proof that he was drunk? (The reason why he refused to take a breathalyzer was because there was a St. Pattys celebration in SC and he had drank earlier, but he didnt know how much wouldve still been in his system)
Refusing to take the breathalyzer test was a serious mistake. If you get pulled over on suspicion of a DUI and...
