Norwalk Law

I am a resident of CT and have a CT driver's licence . Got a DUI in the state of Louisiana ( first offense ever , BAC of .12 ) in 2013. Refused breathalyzer test but later accepted giving Blood sample for chemical test. Pleaded no contest => paid court fees + completed community service hours + took required classes => got "motion of termination of probation " from LA court and a letter from NOLA DMV that my license ( driving privilege in LA ) has been reinstated. My attorney in NOLA is working on expungement of the record and expects to obtain such court decision by end of Sep 2014 ( note this is expected to seal the dui records). CT DMV has learnt about the DUI from NOLA DMV through ( Interstate Driver's License Compact).

In a car accident on an Interstate highway, about 9:30 PM with clear conditions. Dozed off and hit guardrail. Didn’t hit any other car and nobody was in my car. EMS came and said to sit tight. Drinking was involved. State Police gave ticket on the scene for improper lane change. No breathalyzer was given at that time. Brought to hospital emergency room by EMS. Doctor took blood work and concluded Acute Alcohol Intoxication. Released after about 2-3 hours under relative’s care. Questions are whether the blood work information would be given to State Police or be factored in to ticket for improper lane change, and if ticket should be sent in marked guilty or not guilty. Thank you in advance for any advice.

I drink from time to time and want to know if I were ever to be pulled over and I am confident I will be over the legal limit, is it prudent to refuse to blow the meter?

I have gone and completed alcohol rehab ,MADD, and 100 hours of community service .I need to return to SC as I cannot find affordable housing in Stamford and other areas of CT. I live alone and want to be freed of the IID device on my car .What are my chances of early termination?
Probably would depend on how long your probation period is and how close you are to the end of that period.
My attorney immediately requested it or subpoena it and was told it was accidentally destroyed and is not available. Is that grounds for a motion to dismiss in Connecticut? Thanks
You should really be asking your attorney this question. They should be in a much better position to answer your...
