I was charged with a DUI, however, I was not the driver of the vehicle. The other person bailed after only making it a few blocks from my condo with my car and hiding it next to some bushes on private property. She ended up going back to my condo to sleep and also taking the keys with her. She also took most of my clothes and shoes for some reason. We were both drunk, however, she was going on an alcohol run and she didn't make it. I got out of the vehicle and slept/hid in the bushes for whatever reason. When the cops came, they decided I was the driver, as the car was registered to me. They took me to the hospital for a blood draw. Is there any way I can get out of it, or am I screwed? What can I do? Thanks in advance.
You're screwed in the sense that you will likely be changed with DUI. The cops are never going to believe you weren't...
I had 6 beers at a party last weekend over the course of 4 hrs. My friend said I was too drunk but I thought I was fine. I decided to drive. How would I know if I was legally impaired? I weigh 200+ lbs and 6 drinks over 4 hrs is not much compared to my normal intake.
The real answer here that most people actually do not know is that you should not drink and drive at all. If you are...

Already answered. Basically in my opinion if you drink call a cab or have a friend take you home. It isn't worth it.
Under Washington State law, if you are a commercial-vehicle driver who was arrested for DUI or being in physical control of a vehicle while under the influence, you can have your commercial driver's license (CDL) disqualified. This law applies even if you were arrested while in ...
The DUI conviction was in LA County and I was wondering if WA State laws differ from CA laws regarding a CALIFORNIA Expungement which would affect what can be seen in a background check that doesn't require fingerprints.
It depends who is doing the check and how far they invesstigate. Law enforcement will still be able to pick it up and...
Husband was arrested for DUI on the Dec 28th, he refused the field sobriety test and breathalyzer. The police got a search warrant and drew blood at the hospital. They said results would take 4-6 weeks, but we just got the arraignment in the mail and he is to appear on Jan 11th. This surprised both of us! The night of the arrest he ran a red light, got pulled over and they automatically were ready to book him for a DUI. He refused the test because he felt like a blood test was more conclusive and would prove him innocent as he had 3 beers over a few hours and is a big guy. Now we understand that the refusal to take the test may prove to be the bigger issue. Does the arraignment without results (known to us) mean anything???
An interesting but very scary thing the public does not know about DUI cases is that a prosecutor can charge you with a...
Do they ever offer reduced charges in King county on readiness hearings or on the first day of trial?
Yes. However, with a breath test that well I wouldn't be in a big hurry to plead guilty to anything. Low breath test...
