My friend drove my car into a tree, while I was asleep in the back seat. He was drunk, as well as myself and a third passenger. I did not give him my keys and am not sure how he got them. I woke up when the car hit the tree. When the Polizei arrived, all three of us were standing outside the vehicle. The driver would not admit that he was driving, so all three of us were charge with DUI. Will my charges ever get dropped? I told them he was driving and even gave them the message he sent me admitting to driving.

Dear Customer,thank you for using Just Answer.I think the charges against you are going to be dropped soon.In German Law you are innocent until proven guilty.Your guilt has to be proven in a way that the criminal court can be sure.If it is not sure which one of you was driving the car the court is not allowed to convict all three of you.Instead the charges must be dropped altogether.In your case you even have proof becuse he sent you a message.Charges will be dropped soon , only the police is not allowed to do that and has to give the case to the district attorneys.I hope I was able to helpIf you have any further questions please askIf your question is answered completely please click acceptthank you
