Semmes Law

First charge got dismissed. Wondering how to go about this charge. Will it be listed as a second offense? What should I do? Also am I supposed to be given a ticket upon arrest?
It will not count as a second DUI which is good because you'd be looking at a minimum sentence of 5 days in jail...
A DUI 2/14 refusal to provide sample as I did not blow hard enough to get results. I was going to hire a lawyer(non local)for more that was going to try and fight pre trial and specializes in DUI defense. I found a local lawyer for less and handles dui defense. With the refusal he said I take the 90 day suspension, he's going to set a court date at the arraignment next month and try a pre trial diversion. The other lawyer was going to fight it all pre trial, and if taken to trial it would cost me more. I was nervous/anxious, so I hired the local lawyer. I changed my mind called the lawyer for more b/c I would like to try and keep my license and fight pretrial, they then called me back saying refusing to take the case due to too much trouble to deal with now. Im in over my head and need adv

I was arrested after approximately 2 hours. I blew the Dragaer at the station and it "aborted twice for ambient air and accuracy" according to the ticket. Officer said I "failed" field sobriety tests but I will add I was standing on the side of a four lane highway, the road surface was wet, it was misting rain part of the time, I had been up for about 20 hours, and was nervous and anxious. All my paperwork says BAC is N/A or 0.000.
You never know for sure. There are no lesser included offenses to DUI. You should talk to an attorney.
I blew a 0.06 on the breathalyzer and I was not driving. I'm Turning 16 in less than a month. I have a 4.0 GPA and I made a 32 on the ACT. The main reason I am asking this question is because If it will interfere with me getting into a good college some action other than a guilty plea may be required. I do not intend on fighting the case but I would like some reassurance that a guilty plea is the right course of action to take. As I see it, it would cost more money to hire a qualified attorney in law than it would to just pay the fine I will likely be assigned.

I was in an auto accident when the person in front of me slammed on his brakes and I ran into him. I was on my way to refill a blood pressure medication. The officer never gave me a field sobriety test nor a breathalyzer. He found my medication bottle and charged me with DUI for drugs.On notice of intended suspension, he said he did not give me a sobriety test, scratched it outand then said he did.I was tkn to the hosptal, and had a blood test taken.The doctor told me all was good and prescribed 2 pain killers, 800mg! Bizzare! License was taken but i was gvn a 45 day temp.He then took me to jail where I spent the night sleeping next to a toilet. Meanwhile, he told my mother not to come and get me when she could have bailed me out. Blood test taken Tues,sent to lab Fri.Does this seem odd
You need to talk to an attorney as soon as possible who can look at your case.
I was working out of town when I got my first DUI, ever.
No -- you will need to appear in person to deal with this situation short of medical infirmity.
