I have a DUI trial coming up on 3-17-14 related to Ambien. I was not drinking, the medication is prescribed to me, and it is necessary when I have hypomanic episodes for sleep. At the time I was taking Ambien, Trileptal, and Seroquel. All prescribed to me, taken responsibly, before bedtime with my girlfriend caring for me. According to my girlfriend, I woke up around 1:30AM, bizarre behaviors, and then got dressed and said I was going to the store. I ended up totaling my truck and being arrested for a DUI. This happened in August 2011. The city filed 5 days before one year, and the trial has been postponed many times by me so I could gather more info, and them because the arresting officer was out on leave. I'm desperate to win and need some strategies.

I recently drove through a DL / DUI checkpoint and random drivers were being directed into a parking lot for screening. I was not so directed. In the past I have refused to answer questions at DUI checkpoints and been waved through. I had not been drinking and had nothing to hide. This scenario is new to me. Am I legally required to submit to and cooperate with this ?
Yes, you are. It is not optional.

This is my first DUI, I have no criminal record at all till now. They Said I have to do AWP or 7 out of 2 days which i already have 1 day so i have 6 days i have to do. Im on probation for 2 years and i have to do a 9 month class that i have to pay for and a bunch of fines as well.. so i want to know am I going to jail for 6 days or will I be there for a couple hours and ill be released? the officer in the court room told me that I can just turn myself in and ill be released that day after a couple hours.
The officer in the court room probably has the best insight into what will happen. County jails are pretty full all...
I'm trying to see how long he will be held in jail. He was involved in an accident and was charged with DUI, Open Container, Driving on a suspeneded license, and not having an Interlock device on the car. The car was impounded and he was arrested. His first arrest was in July 2012. Less than 6 months and he's been arrested again. I don't know what to do. I'm just trying to find out anything I can.
They likely won't hold him longer than 72 hours from the time of his arrest before they arraign and release him, either...
