Can you be charged with driving on a dui revolked license when you wasn't even in a car when they got you!
My son got charged with driving on a dui revolked license and was even in a vehicle at the time. they took MY car and said I couldn't get it back that it was seized due to that! In Pikeville Tn.?? How can I get my car back?
all of this sounds odd, but police could have seen your son earlier in the day/week driving your car and know that he...
What happens if I move to Chicago with a pending DUI charge to Chicago?
I was arrested under suspicion of a dui on 1/1/15. The case has been continued two times because the arresting officer failed to show up and the judge didn't want to dismiss. He then set another court date out in October. I'm moving to Chicago the beginning of May. What happens if I do get charged and I'm a resident of Chicago in terms of consequences? The DA won't budge or accept a plea bargain for wreckless driving so I can get this over with before I move. He's young and on a power trip so maybe I'll have luck with the new DA in October. Either way I'd like to prepare for the worst, any insight to how this will play out is very much appreciated.

Help needed on DUI and false statements. I am more concerned about my false statements than my DUI. Please help me.
1. Written report of accident 2. DUI, reckless driving 3. False reports(, I started telling stories like ‘car might have been stolen’, ‘I am not the one who crashed car’ etc. ) My questions are, 1. Is it typical for cops to charge under many charges like above 2. Does judge typically sentence me on DUI or all of the above 3. I don’t think cops told me about mirandize. Can cops still use whatever I told? Do they typically have video recorded? As far as I know, it didn’t look like they recorded anything 4. My bail was 800$ and I don’t have incidents earlier. Based on these facts, what would be typical punishment(I am in TN)? 5. Regarding property(a bank) damage, bank hasn’t contacted anyone yet. is that okay if I wait for someone to raise about it or should I have to contact bank/police?

What duty does one have to inform police of communicable disease?
Got stopped at DUI checkpoint coming home from chemo. I was a passenger and was told to get out of the car. I felt weak and tried, but could not. A female cop got angry and yanked me out, calling me a drug addict. The sudden movement made me puke all over her. I am a carrier of p-vivax malaria. I did not realize the puke was blood until I got home. I went to ER. My malaria had come out of remission, due to my reduced immune system. As a carrier, I know that the blood of malaria patients is highly infectious. I did not tell ER doctor about the cop incident. Do I have a legal duty to tell the doctor or the cop?
Sorry to hear about your health. I am not licensed in Tennessee, but regardless of whether you have a legal duty to...
I was arrested last night in TN on "suspicion of DUI" I blew a .06 and was taken to jail. How will my case hold up in court?
The officer pulled me over gave me a field sobriety test then proceeded to take me to the police department where I took the breath test and passed it with a .06 he then explained to me that "On the assumption of when he detained me I was over the level" how will this hold up in court? I don't know what to do this is never happened to me before.
Need more facts but .06 is below the legal limit. Hire a lawyer.
