If pulled over and asked by police to blow into a breathlizer. How many number attempts does the police officer show you result
pulled over for driving to close to highway line. Blew into breathlizer 3 times, and not shown results. Police then agitated, tell me to blow with force, and obtain a reading and show results.
The handheld breathalyzer that you speak of is not scientifically reliable. In most jurisdictions, it is not...
Is a BAC 0.036 very bad or the Legal limit?

I have a capias for a fta for an asap violation in Newport News Va. If I turn myself in will I have to go to jail ?
I was literally homeless until very recently. I still do not have any money to pay for vasap or my other fines yet, either.
In my experience, probably not. Most clients I have had in this situation are released if they turn themselves in....

I had a second fail on my interlock system and got 6 months added to my interlock system the first time. I hired a lawyer. I finish all my asap meeting and AA and treatment classes and I'm being returned to court by my case manager. I had a drink with a friend the night before and the next morning still had alcohol in my system. I waited for about 10 to 11 hours prior before I tried to drive. I full understand the severity of my situation and I just believe I should get some type of credit somewhere?
The best thing for you to do is to quit drinking altogether during this time. You do need a lawyer and he will be in...
Arrested for DUI in VA & if convicted, would be 2nd offense. Is There ANY way I can get charges dropped/reduced? I am desperate!
I was convicted on May 14, 2012 for DUI. Some lady called the cops on me b/c I was talking too long to drive after the lights turned green. I had taken 2 zanax (which was prescribed to me) at 7am and they blood tested me me around 330pm. i pledge guilty bc my court appointed lawyer said that the court threatened to have a doctor testify that i was 3 times over my limit, which i thought was impossible. Anyways, that Dui was taken care of. i was coming home late 2 nights ago...and got lost. I was getting very tired and sleepy. I took a couple of kolonopin prior. I am also supposed to be on depression meds that can man me pretty loopy if i stop them....well i ran out and havent been on them for maybe 2 weeks? Is there anything i can do to reduce my sentence?
There is. You need to get an attorney and fight your case. Don't make the same mistake twice and plead guilty before...
What will a lawyer need to know so he can help me? I have to start calling around tomorrow.
Your lawyer will want to know everything you can remember about your encounter with the officer. Was anyone else in...
I am a MSW. I worked in my field for over eight years. While working as an adjunct professor teaching SW and simultaneously working as an Emergency Services worker for MH/SA with the local ER and police calls I burnt out. I ultimately received two dui's. It has been almost three years and I am basically unemployable and on the verge of being homeless literally. What can I do?
This isn't really a legal question, but here is what I would tell a client or a family member. As a social worker you...
