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 recieved an DC DUI charge with a .12 BAC for the first test at the precient and then a .13 BAC for the second test. Is there any chance that the charge can be lowered to an OWI instead of an DUI?
Yes there is a good chance. You may be able to even fight for a diversion option; however, it requires your lawyer to...
I recieved dui charge for the first time. At the precinct I blew a .12 BAC for the first time and a .13 BAC for the second time. What are the chances that the conviction can be lowered to a OWI instead of a DUI. Please keep in mind nothing aggresive happened with my case. Meaning, there was no accident in anyway and I was fully cooperative with the park police officers.
Retain a DUI lawyer immediately. They know how to handle these kinds of matters.
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...

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)...
