I was arrested with the charge of underage consumption . I was at a party where a person was arrested outside ( everyone else was inside besides home owners who were 21 ) who was under 21 ( above 18 ) for being around alcohol . The cops then arrested the house owners for contributing to minors ( which no one was , b / c we are all above 18 ) and that gave them " probable cause " to enter the premises . They arrested all the minors inside myself being one of them . I was thrown on the ground , sustained minor injuries ( bleeding from my shoulder and bruising on my back ) , was never read my rights , or Breathalyzer / sobriety tested . Simply taken to jail and charged . Is there anything I can do ?
Get an attorney. Sounds like the charge could be dismissed with experienced counsel or at the worst, you'd get...
I received 3 DUI 's in the state of Tennessee between the years of 1980 through 1986 when I was young and careless. I moved to the state of Florida in 1988 got my license re-instated and did not get another DUI until 1998.Florida permanently revoked my license because it was my fourth. I moved back to Tennessee in 2002 and have tried to get a license here but they tell me Florida has a hold on my license. It is nearly impossible to get a job without a drivers license.I even tried to go back to school to improve my education but was turned down because I didn't have a license and their would be on the job training which required travel. I plan never to return to Florida so is there any way to resolve this?
Unfortunatley you are not in a unique position. There are several states thea put lifetime suspensions on license....
I need to produce a Motion For Dismissal of DUI in Tennessee. Is there a of such a motion that I can use.?
I was arrested for suspected DUI. I have both a passenger witness and I believe their car tape that will substantiate I was not DUI. I need a "model" so I can produce a motion for dui dismissal. This is my 1st time before the judge and no plea has been entered yet. I will be representing myself as I am a 100% disabled veteran without adequate resources immediately at hand.
You should not represent yourself unless its an absolute necessity. You can get a public defender if you qualify for...
If I got into a collision and had drank BUT was NOT found at fault , does officer have grounds to make me take DUI field tests?
I was involved in a collision and when the cops came they gave neither parties a ticket and found no one at fault and I had drank and admitted to 1 beer. Does the officer still have the right to ask me to take a field sobriety test? Please note that no one was injured in this collision.. I was neither walking funny or slurring I did 2 FST's and then on the third one ( where you keep one leg up) after 12 seconds my leg fell down and I put it back up for another 10 seconds and fell down and then officer arrested me.. When asked if I would take a breathalyzer.. I refused which is implied consent law violation Did the cop have every right to ask me take the test or can this be fought in court since I was not found at fault for collision?
You need to hire a very good DUI attorney if you are dealing with a refusal. The officer can ask for you to do the...
My mother committed a 1st offense DUI roughly 3 weeks ago. Last night, she was arrested again for the same charge. I understand the jail time that she's facing and that she'll likely get "the book thrown at her" for two DUIs in 1 month, but my question is this: What are the chances that he'll sentence her to some sort of rehabilitation? Would it be helpful at all if I contacted the judge and appealed to him for this? Thanks so much in advance.
Yes, but only contact the judge in open court and do so through her attorney.
How can i defend my case when i was under duress and the officer charges me with dui, implied consent, and drug paraphernalia?
I have been suffering from vertigo, nashua, and blacking out in my work place for a number of weeks. I was attempting to drive home when i experienced vertigo. I immediately pulled off to the nearest exit and parked in a gas staion parking lot. My car was off, keys zipped in my pocket, and in a parking spot. My two feet were on the ground, the door was open and i was facing the gas station. I sat here vomiting and dry heaving for about 30 mins. A very aggressive state trooper pulls in behind me, prevents me from leaving and gets out. Long story short... i consent to search he finds an old cigarillo and baggies. i couldnt do the roadside sobriety test and i was barely conscious when presented the implied consent form. The officer refused to help me understand and told me to refuse..
You need to get an a DUI defense attorney ASAP to assist you. Some troopers are very aggressive and there are many...
I was arrested recently at a gas station while not in the car. I refused the field sobriety test and I don't recall the trooper asking me to blow. The TCA IS 55.10.401. This is my first time being arrested for a DUI. Would it help to go and get a drug screen to help better my defense? the incident happened at 1:15 am on Saturday morning and by the time I go for the screen, it will be Monday morning.. I know with alcohol, its usually 24 hrs? and with drugs 3-30 days?
There is a lot that you are not saying, for instance was there an accident, how many witnesses. Drugs can dissipate...
