I was not "operating" the vehicle, waiting for a friend to pick up the car that was down the street from home. I was standing by it. Cop says there are witnesses saying they saw me behind the wheel. Not true, there aren't any and cop doesn't have any names, etc., because I was not behind the wheel and there are no names on police report. I was drinking, but at home, not arguing that before I walked down to the car. Cop also stated that my friend who showed up later said I was driving and put that on police report, also not true. Friend showed up after cop, so how's that possible that he saw me? Lawyer says they are charging me based on witness accounts, but they can't provide those witness's and friend says he will testify in court that he never said such about me driving to the cop.
The police and prosecution can charge you with anything they want. If there are any facts in dispute and those facts,...
The city is charging me with a DUI and the lawyer says it's based primarily on the police report filed. Within the report the officer states that witness "A" said I was driving. Witness "A" did not say that to the officer and will testify in court to such should we go there. Witness "A" wasn't even there till after the cop arrived. Also the officer stated that there were other witness's to say I was driving, but can't produce any names, etc. I absolutely was not behind the wheel, so there can't be any witness's to such. I shouldn't have to pay for a crime based on false statements by this officer and want to know if I can sue him in civil court for all the monetary loss, etc. this has caused me.

My Nephew got 2 Dui's 6 years ago and this last weekend got a 3rd. Can he go deffered on this one if he hasnt in the past?
Yes.
The Legal Procedures When you are arrested for a DUI, two distinct procedures are triggered: a COURT CASE and an ADMINISTRATIVE ACTION. They happen at the same time and are, for the most part, inde
I was charged with a DUI, however, I was not the driver of the vehicle. The other person bailed after only making it a few blocks from my condo with my car and hiding it next to some bushes on private property. She ended up going back to my condo to sleep and also taking the keys with her. She also took most of my clothes and shoes for some reason. We were both drunk, however, she was going on an alcohol run and she didn't make it. I got out of the vehicle and slept/hid in the bushes for whatever reason. When the cops came, they decided I was the driver, as the car was registered to me. They took me to the hospital for a blood draw. Is there any way I can get out of it, or am I screwed? What can I do? Thanks in advance.
You're screwed in the sense that you will likely be changed with DUI. The cops are never going to believe you weren't...
