I was charged with a DUI. Took breath test and blood test. Blood came back with nothing bc the cop forgot to ask for which drug he wanted tested. Blew Breath test,came out 0.00. Cops states I was on drugs. Took alcohol/drug Assessment, no treatment and passed UA. Prosecutor still wants to charge with DUI and court appointed says I could get possibly driving reckless driving. Cop also lied and stated he gave me a ticket for not having insurance,never did. Have insurance and pay 6 months ahead each time. Witness are the ones that called in saying I was driving poorly and driving on the wrong side of the road,not true and back out of a driving and did a U turn. Can't do it,you either go right or left you can't do a u turn backing out of anywhere. I want to go to trial. what should I do? Thxs
Sounds like a very defensible case. Don't know how they prove a case with no alcohol nor tox results.
My house had a party and there was a noise complaint, so the police came and banged on my door and window and threatened to get a warrant and arrest everyone unless someone came out. I came out and talked to the officers and stayed on my front lawn the whole time. He told me we'd receive a noise violation. In the end we received a "disorderly conduct loud party" offense and I got "minor intoxicated in public". I was never drinking outside, and was only ever outside when the police demanded someone come out. Is that still "public"? What kind of punishment can I expect? (Will be 21 in less than a month).
There are a lot of variables and issues for Minor in Possession of Alcohol (MIP) including whether you were in a public...

I was appointed a probation officer during my arraignment. I have been back to court 4 times,go back Dec 4th. During my last court date I was told by the officer that checks you in that I was suppose to see my probation officer. I was in her office I asked if I changed the Venue for my trial if I had to see her . She said really snotty and mean "Do you know what a Venue is".I told of course I do. She asked me if I had done my assessment for drugs and alcohol. told her yes and I do not need treatment and UA came out negative. She was pissed and said you have an addiction and you do not need treatment? You have had 3 DUI's and you don't have to go to treatment? Again saying very snotty had these 2, DUI's 18 and 20 years ago. addicted to what? Who do I tell this too?Obviously not for me!
You need to speak to a DUI attorney about this. I would need more facts to determine if you have a case. Blowing .000...
