Arrested for DUI. I was weaving (dropped items in the car and weaved) and also failed portions of the field sobriety test (eye test and one balance test). I was extremely nervous. Never experineced anything like this before. No alcohol and no illegal drugs in my system but I do take 20 mg of paxil daily. I told the trooper but do not know if he recorded this information or added it to his report for testing to use against me. Will the blood test look for this prescription med when testing? I have read it is possible to have a DUI arrest enforced even when prescribed medication is taken in its prescribed dosage.
It's doubtful they would detect the Paxil unless they specifically looked for it. In my experience, Paxil does not...
I got my first dui 2006. In ky It stays on your record for five years. I got my second dui ln 2012 in tn and my 3rd in tn in 2 013. And my 4th in 2014. In tn Can they charge me even though ky is five years for a 4th dui.
You need to go by the law in the state that you received the current DWI charge in, which I assume is TN. If TN counts...
The only evidence that the prosecutor has against me is from a blood draw. There is no video, there were no field sobriety tests done, and there were no other types of testing done (such as breathalyzer). I've been offered a plea but have read that I should be sure the chain of custody is intact and the blood was properly stored, etc before agreeing to anything. Is this something that I can hire an attorney to determine before I accept the plea?
Yes and yes to both questions here. Basically, attorneys do not make limited appearances just to determine one issue in...
I wanted some clarification on Amelia's Law as it pertains to suspended prosecutions for DUIs. I understand that according to the Tennessee Code Annotated Section 40-15-105 DUIs are prohibited from suspended prosecution. But, with the introduction of Amelia's Law in Tennessee Code Annotated, Section 40-15-105(a)(2), are suspended prosecution offered to first-time offenders of DUIs if they agree to the transdermal patch? I suppose I'm confused by the statement "...the defendant use a transdermal monitoring device or other alternative monitoring device if, in the opinion of the district attorney general, the defendant's use of alcohol or drugs was a contributing factor in the defendant's unlawful conduct" when the section before it states that DUIs are prohibited.
Asker, this is the kind of question that you need to direct to an attorney during an in-person consultation. I assume...
I just had a DUI and going to go to jail for 1 night and will have classes. My wife had probation because of drugs and had a theft charges. it happened 5 years ago and she has not done anything bad recently. What would be the affect on green card process?
It depends which of you is the alien. Hopefully you are.
I was pulled over recently for no seat belt and got a DUI for weed. I had the substance and paraphernalia in my possession. He said I was hesitating so that's why he suspected I was high. He wrote on the citation he smelled it coming from the car. I hadn't smoked it in the car but I had smoked about an hour prior to driving. I got 4 citations. DUI, Paraphernalia, Posession of shedule VI (weed), and no seat belt. I agreed to have blood drawn. It was a state trooper that pulled me over, and he said that it would be pointless for me to get a lawyer. Would getting a lawyer help me out some how?
Get a lawyer unless you want to just eat a DUI without any challenge. Never take legal advice from a cop.
And never had police car behind me
The DUI charges just might stick. I think this is a duplicate post. You cannot resolve this online and need to...
