Blew a .086 on a field test and was taken in for blood test then released, what are my options?
Was driving back from a friend's house and was flagged for speeding. (not radared but based on cop's estimation). Committed the two big no no's unfortunately, and told the cop i had a beer and submitted to the field test and breathalyzer twice (blew a ,086). I agreed to be taken to the hospital to get a blood test and was allowed to be picked up and taken home instead of taken to jail. What should be my next steps as to fighting this case (kind of dug myself a hole) and if my blood test come back under ,08 will they help my case at all? Will this blood test result be available to me or be released? Thanks in advance for any advice.

LVN license appeal. DUI misdemeanor
I graduated LVN school May 2014 & I passed my LVN state boards September 2014 first attempt. I received a congratulations in the mail about me passing my state boards but due to a DUI misdemeanor I received 2012 I am unable to receive my license. I appealed it & months has passed and I have now received a first class documentation from the court in regards to my appeal. It gave me an option to withdrawal my appeal, forward with my appeal and talk to the judge OR do something called a stipulation? I'm not sure what a stipulation is? I did everything that was required for my DUI... Alcohol program, breathalyzer, reinstated my license, everything... but i am still on probation until 2016 which is why i was denied my license. I'm not sure what to do now? Should I seek a lawyer?
You should at least consult with a lawyer, preferably one who is familiar with licensing issues. You might be able to...

DUI Case of an LVN
My friend was caught for speeding and had a DUI of .09 last Saturday. Does he need to inform right away his employer? He is currently at work right now. Is there a possibility that his license will be revoked even if it's only .09. The cop got his license (but he got a temporary license for driving) and his court hearing is May 13. He is confused on what to do.
Your friend has a lot to lose both in court and potentially with the LVN licensing agency. When one is confused and...
I am being charged with DUI for the second time. First time was in 2010, I got 3 years probation, fine and classes.
In Feb/2015 I got into a minor accident, the other driver called the police, and the police asked me if I was drinking before driving...I blew 0.14. What is the best case scenario for me? I am afraid I will be sent to jail when I go to the court.
It all depends upon what court you are going to; whether you have any priors and if the person was hurt. Since you...
