How likely can a first time DC DUI turn into a OWI for a BAC over .1 but below .15 with a clean record?
I understand that the DC law is very complicated and unlike other states a DUI can't be lowered to a reckless driving. How likely can someone with a bac over a .1 but below a .15 have their DUI lowered to a OWI?
As you mentioned DC law and its application can sometimes be confusing and often it does not make sense. The answer to...
I was pulled over in DC for going down wrong way on a one-way street, performed sobriety test - failed, I was then arrested, and took breathalyzer at station which revealed a high BAC, I was detained then released and allowed to retrieve my car only 1-2 hours after being booked. I fully cooperated the whole time and was released 2 hours earlier than I was originally told. The back of court summons paper says I MAY be eligible to avoid criminal conviction by paying a fee on the court date.

This is my 3rd DUI ever. The last one I had was in 2006. I live in the state of Maryland. I already went to court and the officer didn't show and they threw it out.
If you've had previous DUIs, the government will almost certainly be looking to punish you harshly. It's not clear if...
What is the history of D.C.'s legal limit for intoxication? When did the time of zero tolerance end?
I am informed that, previously, for DUI's there used to be a zero tolerance for alcohol standard. That is, a confession of two beers before driving is essentially a confession of guilt. Can you provide some background, from your experience? Thank you.
This is not the forum for this. Try Google.

I got a DUI in Los Angeles in 2005. I then moved home to Maryland and got a DUI in March of 2012 in Annapolis/Anne Arundel County. I received a PBJ because they didn't know about my first. I then violated my probation in November of 2012 by getting a 3rd DUI in Baltimore City. Since then I've been going to meetings, am in a 48 week after care program, did a weekend in rehab and am starting a 28 day rehab cycle soon which I will have completed before my court date in March of 2013. Will this keep me out of jail at all????
Grea job on apparently addressing your issues with alcohol (presumably - no mention of what substance the DUIs involved)...
I had 2 DUI cases back in 2006, my question is , if one or my 2 cases can be expunged from my record.
Very unlikely unless they were both dismissed and you can prove actual innocence or another extraordinary ground of...
