Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
so the jerk returns from his 15 min break to find me goofing around with the BAC machine and smiling at him. he told me he is considering it a refusal and locks me up !
DOL disagreed with the refusal ownly because the officer said the same thing. HE NEVER ASKED ME TO GIVE A SAMPLE .
7% slope reported as flat, visually estimated speed, he claimed i had no insurance when all he had to do is ask. 20,000 bail and i was asked nothing. video evidence from the jail and court recordings all show this.
ARE ANY OF MY CONSTITUTIONAL OR CIVIL RITES BEING VIOLATED HERE AND WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS FOR DEALING WITH THIS
not any more, they offered a neg first deg and some alcohol classes and i jumped on it.
i went to a few trials as a spectator and wish i would have gone to trial. i didnt realize that the system works as long as the public is present.
what was realy scary was when the judge placed a 20,000 bail without asking me anything.
DUI , no insurance, speeding 45 in 35 by estimate was the original charges.
pled guilty to neg 1st. no alcohol or any crap present, this was in WA state.
negligent driving first degree.
i believe that alcohol has to be presrnt in the vehicle or an empty can....
nothing was thier and believe me they searched.
this thing has me so pissed off at least the chance is worth it.
i know that even if i loose it would cause some embarisment. definatly bring out some skelitons from thier closit.
i need to get to work, if you have some kind good spin come to you let me know.
thank you very much for the shred of hope.
i will post a stupid question for you so if you come up with somthing or need some info
you can let me know. let me know what it is worth to you also. i wont be back until late tonite.
well i have a lot of other questions but it looks like i had better go make my credit card some money.
PLEASE STAND BY
