After my first offense OVI I was sent to an alcohol and drug addiction treatment center. I finally completed the program two months ago (or so I thought) but just recieved a subpeona a couple days ago to appear in court later today. They are saying that I didn't complete the program, but in my last meeting at the treatment center I was under the impression that I was all done there. I'm terrified the court is going to lock me up because they think I'm not complying!
Yes, you can defininitely be sent to jail for not completing court ordered treatment, even if it was a misunderstanding....
I was pulled over two months ago for a DUI then charged with refusing a breathalyzer and left of center. I did field tests, but they read me my rights then put me in the back of the cop car. They took me to base and let me sit, for what seemed like, forever. But they supposedly were "calling" someone to pick me up. My license wasn't taken away nor my keys. They did not impound my car, just safely drove it to a tow free zone. I have those three citations and yet to hear anything about it. They said 4-8 weeks (up to 45 days). It is way past 45 days. Now what?
Your citation should contain a court date. I would make an appointment with an attorney and bring your citations....
I was cited for an OVI after I had already been home for nearly an hour. I was not drunk when I had the accident, but I was in shock of sorts, having not been in a severe accident before. I drove home not knowing what else to do. When I got there I consumed the equivalent of about 5 or 6 shots of 100 proof vodka I had at the house. When the police arrived (i lived about 3/4 a mile from the accident), I gave them a statement saying I didn't remember the accident and that I hadn't drank when I got home (i found out i had the drinks after the ordeal when I got back home and noticed quite a bit of vodka missing from my bottle). Is there a way to amend my statement? Or should I let my PD know on my pretrial date? Its a first offense OVI, and ive only had one moving violation in 3 years.
You should talk with your PD immediately so they can prepare a defense for you. You don't want to waive your right to...
If the police don't could it weaken the states case.

I refused all the test. This is my second felony dui. Could this be possibily drop down to a lesser charge other than a felony? What are my chances?
Sounds harsh. Out here in CA I was just able to get my client a drunk in public for the exact same behavior. Hire a...
I refused field test. I was taken to the police station and wasn't asked to submit to breath test. I was booked into jail. Do I have a case to defend?
Absolutely. That is a very defendable case.
I refused the field test. I was taken to the police station and wasn't asked to submit to breath test. I was booked into jail. What do I do now?
Talk to a criminal defense attorney regarding your options. When is your court date? Lisa Wells
