I was pulled over for suspended drivers license and DUI. The arresting officer didn't even read me my rights.
I was pulled over for suspended drivers license and DUI. The arresting officer didn't even read me my rights. I have been fighting this case since 2013. The arresting officer was placed on the stand and questioned by my pro bono attorney. He stated that he didn't read me my rights and nor did he have a video cam etc. My attorney stated that I could have actually gotten back in my car and drove off. My attorney asked for the case to be dismissed, but the judge said no since I had a DUI 10 years ago in Texas. This case is in Oklahoma by the way. I was approved for a court appointed attorney 4 times now but they keep saying I didn't fill the paperwork out correctly. I think they are just stringing me along for court cost. Is there anything I can do? I lost my job due to this so I'm currently unemployed. Thank you in advance.

What happens after the 3 years has passed receiveing the for the 1650 waiver packet
I got a DUI in CA and finished all requirements and paid all fines except for the 1st offender program which is a 9 month program. I applied and received the 1650 waiver packet after moving to OK where I've received my OK license. Almost 3 years has passed and I was originally going to return to CA to complete my classes ( since the CA DMV will never accept an out of state program) Due to expenses and many other factors I don't wish to return to CA anymore for I have settled down in OK. What I wanted to know was what are the consequences of not returning to CA besides losing driving priviledges in CA? I looked in SD County and see that i still have a bench warrant even after applying for the Waiver. I wish to avoid having to make a trip to CA altogether. Thanks for any info

My son got a DUI and his attorney failed to appear at his court hearing. Does he need an attorney to request a public defender?
My son got a DUI in 04/13 and signed a plea agreement. His attorney was also his boss at a restaurant. He closed the business without paying my son which started an avalanche of financial problems, then he didn't show up at his hearing. He wasn't offered a public defender, even though he was unemployed, and for the most part homeless. He didn't know what to do, but he's been told if he puts myself on the docket they will put him in jail. A bench warrant has been issued. My son has been diagnosed with a mental illness, and he wasn't taking his medication when he signed the plea deal. This has sent him into a spiral and he makes his living with his car, so this has truly devastated his life.
Your son should engage counsel prior to surrendering on the warrant.

Can I have my license reinstated in OK if it's currently suspended/revoked in FL?
Multiple DUI offender, been in sobriety for almost 5 years. Recently moved from Florida to Tulsa, OK and would like to know if I can set domicile and receive driving privileges in OK. There's an attorney in CO advertising that he can do it there, but the website hasn't been updated for years and almost seems too good to be true.
If you are not eligible for reinstatement in FL, my present understanding is you can not be approved for a DL in OK.
If I took a breathalyzer twice and passed can the officer also make me take a blood test?
I got pulled over with 5 people in my car they walked up to the car and told the back passanger driver to step out. Then started to ask the others to step out of the vehicle. When he got to me he asked if I knew why he pulled me over and I said I did not know, then he replied because you went into the center median. It was a 2 lane road on my side and I never went into the left lane I stayed on the right lane the hole time and wasn't near the center median. Then I got pulled out and took 2 breathelayzers and then was taken to the hospital to get blood drawn. He said if I did not comply with the blood test they would take my license.
This is absolutely legal and the procedure in Oklahoma when DUI-drugs is suspected. Whether or not the officer had...
