Man i know has been on probation for 2 years now, 5 more to go, and then got arrested for speeding, his breathalizer was error. Took him for bloodwork then straight to jail. Hes been there for 5 days now, with no charges filed, has not recieved any paperwork, cannot get an answer from anyone.He has a gagnon hearing at the end of the month, his alleged drinking must be his probation violation. Are they going to hold him until that hearing? It's legal to be held for a month with no charges and no information until the gagnon hearing? thinking that his BAC was below the legal limit, and this is his1st dui offense, is it safe to assume since it has been past 72 hours and no charges yet, that they are not going to charge him with DUI?
He needs a lawyer and a bondsman. This would be my next step. Hell in Oklahoma they have three years to press charges....

I was in car accident a few months ago. I was severly injured and taken to the hospital immediately from the accident. My friend spoke to the officer that reported to the accident a few days after the crash and was told the officer believed I was under the influence and would subpeona the hospital for my blood results. The hospital did draw blood to see if I would need platelets and my BAC .107. How long do they have to charge me with a DUI? Is a hospital test reliable enough to be charged in court? I was under the assumption that the police had their own blood kits and procedures to ensure that the sample was not contaminated. Will I get a notice when the officer subpeonas my blood results and are those protected by doctor patient confidentiality?
A subpoena cannot be issued unless there is a case filed against you. The officer can, however, obtain a search...
We were both drinking all day. I was driving. B.A.C. .147. Hers .039. She agrees we had both been drinking all day and wants to drop the charges
The charge of DUI is one against the State and not against an individual, as a result an individual can not drop such a...
Final hearing in june. Have to call office to schedule another appointment. Wondering if they will drug rest at this appointment
You should check with the ard requirements in your county. Every county has different standards.
my first dui was in 2007, driving under a controlled substance. I also have criminal intent. I am currently in school for criminal justice and would like to get as many, if not all my records expunged. I have public drunkenness and criminal intent as well. Most of these charges occurred between 2007 and 2009.
The current answer to the question is that you can't seek expungement for any misdemeanor or felony conviction until...
I received 2 DUI's in a relatively short time-frame approximately 15 months ago. Everything, including probation and fines, has been completed in good standing, so I'm no longer under any type of court supervision. My question comes because of the fact that I have 2 DUI convictions to my name. Since I was not eligible for ARD due to the second offense, I was not able to have that charge expunged. Is there any process, or any amount of time I have to wait, in order to petition the court to have either, or both, of my DUI convictions expunged? I certainly appreciate any and all help. Thank you!
If you received ARD for the first offense, and were able to complete ARD, you can have that charge expunged now. For...
