Yes you can be charged with a DUI based on the statements your fiance gave. However, the State still has to be able to...
Arrested for DWI. What to expect from attorney, and can I see the state's evidence against me?
Last month I was pulled over and arrested for suspected DWI. I hired an attorney and met with him briefly to discuss the facts of the case. Since then, my case has been continued once. I'm new to all this and have 2 questions: #1 - When should I expect to hear from my attorney regarding whether he thinks I should plead guilty or go to trial? I'm a little worried that I won't learn of his recommendation until I actually show up for court. Do most attorneys discuss this with clients before their actual court date in case the client has additional questions? #2 - Is it possible for me to personally get copies of the evidence that the state has against me (e.g., patrol car video, officer's report, etc.), and is this only possible if the case goes to trial? Thanks in advance!
You should really speak to the attorney you hired and pose these questions.
Can you do community service before going to court in NC, and how does community service work in general?
I was arrested and charged with a DWI in Randolph County. I have hired an attorney. A friend told me that it was possible to perform community service work prior to going to court, and that this might even save some money. Is this true? Also, in North Carolina, does court-ordered community service work have to be performed in the same county as the conviction? I live in a different county from the one where my case is pending. How do you go about finding an organization to perform your court-ordered community service?
I can't speak for Randolph County, so your lawyer would be a better resource for your question as to the community...

If you have an attorney on your case, you should definitely discuss this with them. If not, you should consider hiring...
In 2000,I got a dui in GA, with a CA license,and now live in NC..
Had the ADETS assessment and took the 20 hour class, but now GA told me on the phone I need "Clinical treatment"?..Is this the same as the ADETS and ADETS says I need to get a driving record from GA since this is where the violation took place. GA says since my last licensing was in CA that I need a CA driving record, even though it didnt occur in CA., it occured in GA!..I thought the ADETS assessment and completion was all I needed but they list "Clinical treatment" as a separate requirement. Im so confused!
I would contact a GA DUI attorney. You can order your CA driving record by going to the CA DMV website.
Can I have a term of probation dropped while being in violation?
I am on probation for a dwi, I was recently incarcerated for nine months on a different charge. The different charge I was given ninety days, for which I got time served, but I have done six more months then I should have. My PO was told not to violate while I was incarcerated, so now I find myself in violation. Is there anyway I could have the six months go for my active sentence and be done with probation altogether? Any help would be great, I'm having trouble finding anything to help me. Thank you and have a great day.
Generally no. If you were incarcerated on another charge, and were not serving time on this charge, they will not go...
Pulled for speeding and resulted in DWI....
I had been at christmas party and knew that I had too much to drink, so I spent the night. Upon getting up I got an "emergency" call out to work (It was a sunday). I ate some breakfast before leaving and was headed to the house to get cleaned up and go to work. I was following a car in a 60 mph zone and when they braked, I went into the passing lane to avoid them. I then saw the officer that they braked for. I immediatly slowed down and got over into the right hand lane and was pulled for going 79 in a 60. The officer said he smelled alcohol and asked if I had been drinking. I was given a pocket breath tester, then brought to the station where I blew again. I blew, then breathalizer needed to recalibrate so I was then given a fst, then I blew a 12. Is there a chance to have this reduced?
I would save the evidence and the story you tell work against you. Hire counsel. Perhaps negotiations......
