During my DUI DMV hearing the arresting officer testified that without question he observed me for the entire 15 minutes prior to the breath test. Was able to obtain hard evidence that proves the officer did not observe me and moreover lied under penalty of perjury. ( Multiple time both on paper and during the DMV Hearing sworn statements) The DA has offered me a wet-reckless plea but I am trying to decide if I should attempt to fight this in a court. My BAC was .11. Does an improper breath test and officer perjury raise enough reasonable doubt to get this case dismissed / not-guilty verdict in a jury trial? Should I consider fighting this in a jury trial? Looking for others advice/insight that have defended this scenario before..
You should really be discussing this with your attorney. Even if the breath test was improper, the DA will bring in...
I need some advice please. In May I was pulled over in Pasadena by glednale cops according to the police I was driving fast .He asked if I was drinking I said yes. I did the exams walking a straight line and other exams according to them I did not do great . I blew below .08 multiple times and my friend was with me he blew under too. We both only had 2 drinks. Anyways they cop thought I was on drugs or medication. Which I was not or do any drugs . They took me to the hospital to draw blood. My license was not suspended. I checked with dmv they have no info about it. I went to court in Glendale Oct 1st and they didn't have a record of my case. Now I got a letter to attend court next month in Pasadena. My question is can this be dismissed ? I was not on drugs and I blew under the limit 3x .
If charges were filed they may think they have something. No one can tell you whether or not your case can be dismissed...
the bartender served her three to five of his specialty drinks while she sat at the bar. She then goes down the long hallway to the ladies room, leaving all her personal effects at the bar, the bathroom is down a long hallway, and it's door is right next to the unmonitored emergency unlocked exit to the back parking lot. On her way out of the bathroom she is taken outside and into a strangers car by two persons unknown to her that were hanging around in the bar area and saw her getting drunker and drunker. She is raped by one in the car a few miles away. What claim does she have against the bar? Perhaps something to do with the defective design of the bar and its lack of security as well as the fact that the bartenders drinks caused her to become extremely vulnerable?
This question deals with civil liability and I would defer on the answer to a civil litigation attorney. You posted...

Sorry, the BAR tender didn't cause this. The FEMALE DRANK THE DRINKS by her own choice. Then MEN committed the crime....
I was arrested for a possible DUI at a .08 level, and no charges were filed within the 1 year statue of limitations. My license was suspended by the DMV (and for what i was never convicted), but i got it re instated after doing all classes and paying fees. I now have had a sr22 for a year and was wondering if i have to keep it for 3 years if i was never convicted? I probably do because my license was suspended for it?
You should check with the DMV- its actions are separate from those of the court.
I am in the three month program and just got expelled for missing 21 days. However, there was a holiday. I only missed twice and that is allowed. I don't know what to do now. Can the school reinstate me or do I need to go to court? My license was not affected by my DUI, but the courts punishment was 3 month DUI class and 3 years informal probation.
You should call the court that sentenced you. The Judge will want to see you and you will need to give a good response....
In regards to a restricted license, I went to the dmv today to obtain the restriction. I was finally called up at 5:37pm. The worker looked at my papers and was stumped as to why an iid was not listed for me. My administrative per se states nothing about it, my case is still in court, and my plea deal from the DA states nothing about an iid. The worker was so confused he gave me MAU's phone number to call and verify before coming back. What's going on? Will I be required to have an iid to get my license back? Do I have to be convicted before obtain my restricted license? There's so much going on here.
You will only be required to install an iid if you are convicted of the DUI charges. It is not required if you lose...
