Customer Question
taking ambien and no alcohol...
Do you think the DA will take into consideration I was taking ambien and no alcohol was involved. I was taking ambien...having a miscarriage and trying to sleep through it. My husband is in rehab and I started having complications so I was trying to drive to an ER. I don’t have family where I live. I will also ask my Dr. to never prescribe the medication again.

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
That I admitted to taking ambien and that I took “6” of something. I did NOT take “6” of anything. I don’t remember much of the night because of the ambien.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I think that I was just on ambien and did not know what I was saying.
Criminal Lawyer: CrimDefense, CriminalDefenseAtty replied 3 months ago
Thank you. There is nothing wrong or illegal about having it in your system or admitting to taking it if it was prescribed. What is illegal is if you were impaired by it and driving and the burden is on the state to prove that beyond a reasonable doubt at trial. If they can not or lack evidence you have a chance to fight this and the could have a weak case.
