I got pulled over after 2am on my drive home from friends house.the officers reason for pulling me over was that I swerved Between 1 and 2 lanes. He asked for my license ect I gave it to him. He them asked me to get out and do the field . The sheriff keep messing up on what he was instructing me to do. But I still did what he asked. Also he had me doing the test going up hill I didn't get offered a breathalyzer at the scene, he just took me in. There I had my blood drawn forcefully. With out my consent . But I still did it .

What are my chances with a public defender getting it reduced. Or dismissed. No prior problems with law
Good. The blood, and maybe all the rest of the evidence, may be suppressed. You should consider finding the money to...
My 19 year old son was arrested for a dui he blew a .09 on the breathalizer and no blood test was given. He has no prior at all
He hit the curb no other cars were involved and no one saw him drive. He was stopped and detained by an off duty officer who did not show him any identification and told him to sit on the curb until a patrol car came. He was booked and held 4 hours and blew a .09 and no blood test was given. Do you think a dry and wreckless or a infraction will be possible to plea bargain down to. How much difference in penalties is a dry and wreckless or an infraction compared to a dui or wet and wreckless. what direction should we go
A blood test is not necessary for a conviction. Blowing a .09 as a 19 year old would not likely be reduced to anything...

Recently got my first DUI Nov 8, 2013 got court on March 11, 2014 in Riverside, CA. My license is suspended & I'm currently working on getting my restricted license. Already have my SR-22 just need to enroll to the first offender program so I can get the restricted license from the DMV.

My record is clean, attend college & work.
So far, Riverside hasn't started imposing the IID on first offenders outside of their pilot counties. As far as my...

You need to hire a criminal defense attorney. Try Avvo's "Find a Lawyer" service.
I was pulled over and asked to step out and take some field sobriety tests. I did good on the FST, so next the officer asked me to take a Pas breathalyzer test. I told him I prefer to take a blood test. I was taken to the station and told I need to take a breathalyzer test because a blood test was not available. I refused and told them I will only take a blood test. They were unable to get a phlebotomist there to take a blood sample and I was released a few hours later with a notice to appear ticket vc 23152(a) DUI and a 30 day temporary license for the refusal. I contacted the dmv to schedule a hearing to contest the license suspension.
I have one of those cases right now. They can and they do. Good fact that can be very helpful though.
What are the chances of me going into custody from a FTA and bench warrant for a DUI case from 2009. Warrant was issued 2011-FTA
I'm 8 months into a dui program (18 months-multiple offender), i did complete MADD. I'm worried about going to court and being booked into custody and not another chance to get the rest of the obligations finished for the court. I've been working as well the past few years and just recently got offered a very good job- the background check showed the bench warrant. I want to explain to the judge that I had a problem then, and am much of a different person now. I'm absolutely terrified, again, to go to court and lose this new job offer and the progress of what I've already completed. Any advice?
Your best bet is to hire an attorney that can put your case on calendar ASAP AND APPEAR 977 WITHOUT YOUR APPEARANCE...
