I got a arrested for DUI .10 what are my chances of winning this case?
I cant believe i am this position and i put myself in this situation and so close to apply for my citizenship. I got arrested for DUI 2 weeks ago, my first offense never had an issue like this before my alcohol level was .10, the cop who arrested me was very aggressive at the beginning he even accused me of resisting my arrest when it wasn't true! thank god he didn't charge me for that too, he never read me my rights even when he made me use the Breathalyzer. when finally i got out of jail and checked that he put on my file that i was Mexican! where did he got that from? i am Colombian just because i speak Spanish doesn't mean i am Mexican, and the way he stopped me, he said i was speeding before i got in the freeway but he was following me for 10 minutes before stopping me on the freeway!.
