Staunton Law

I was the victim of ass. and batt., I called the sheriff's dept. to come to help me. I had just had my life threatened--on top of beaten. I already had a black eye and visible scruffs on my knees where I had been tackled to the ground repeatedly. Because I was distraught,& after the off. came out of the garage from speaking with the 'offender' he had already decided that he was taking us both to jail without even hearing my side. He ended up arresting only me for drunk in public and resisting arrest. I was on priv. prop. where no one in my community can see, nor could we see a public road, furthermore, I did not try to "flee" which constitutes resisting arrest. In what I have read, I was not legally "in public" so the arrest seems to be unlawful, therefore, COULD resist, though I did not.
I suggest that you consult Susan Johnson, an atttorney in Staunton who handles these types of cases. You can fight it,...
In August of 2013 I was convicted of a first offense DUI with a high BAC (>0.15), as a result I was sentenced to a mandatory 5 days in jail with 55 days suspended sentence, ASAP classes and counseling, also a restricted license with a required breathalizer installed in my car for one year. I have done everything as required by the court along with paid all my fines. I've now had my breathalizer over 6 months and I've been told that I could probably petition to have it removed, I haven't had any failed tests aside from a device malfunction, also no failed drug screens or ETG tests. I have no idea how to petition this, do I need to have a lawyer do it? and if so is there any way to have my full license restored since I haven't had any violations? I know this will probably depend on the judge.
As you restoring your license fully, that can not happen until you have served out the entire suspension. The law...
I got convicted with a DWI >0.15 in April 2013, and two days ago (one year later), I blew a fail. An hour later I passed, leading me to believe that I failed by a pretty low margin. I wasnt sure what happened and tried rinsing my mouth out, believing that it may have been caused by mouthwash...I just kept thinking did I eat something or drink something that set it off? I blew again one hour later and passed, and now Im wondering if I am going to serve more time under probation for this, especially considering I have 11 clean months with no violations.
When you say you blew a single fail, does that mean you did not give the second blow a few minutes later? The point of...
I Received a 1st time DUI conviction and was ordered to complete 6 months of having an Ignition Interlock device. Are there any penalties due finishing the six months install late, past the 12 month court date? (Besides delayed license reinstatement) I have not driven this year and I have no access to a vehicle. I've completed all the other requirements (Alcohol education classes, etc.)
The ignition interlock requirement only applies if you requested a restricted driver's license when you were convicted...
Is a BAC 0.036 very bad or the Legal limit?
No, not for a DWI/DUI. .08 is the legal limit. If you are a minor, it may cause issues or if they suspect drugs in...

I am contacting lawyers in my area to help in my defense. Blood was taken at the scene, but retaken an hour later at the hospital because the tube used previously was passed the expiration date (which is all that I gathered while listening to the nurse and officer speak). The vehicle was totaled at the scene and I spent 12 hours in the hospital. I am curious as to what may happen on my court date? Any words of wisdom are welcome before I speak to an attorney. Thank you.
You definitely need to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney who specializes in DUIs. Blood draw cases have...
