    The two previous answers are very good. I want to repeat what I think is the most important parts and suggest you follow this advice. 1. This is serious. Get a lawyer now. 2. You have a right to remain silent. That right only means something if you exercise it. Do not talk to anyone about this case except your lawyer. Not the cops. Not your parole officer. Not your mother. Not your girlfriend. Not your priest. No one! 3. Stop posting facts about the case here. I know you are...

    As I understand your situation, you told the cop that you did not drink on the side of the road, even though you did. The BMV hearings Officer for Houlton is going to give that serious consideration. You may have an uphill battle at the BMV hearing. To keep your Class A license you have to win both the BMV hearing and the OUI. You need competent legal assistance for this case.

    I do not see an abuse of power that would result in a dismissal. I am not sure what you mean by witch hunting. If you mean profiling, illegal profiling must be based on a protected classification such as race, religion or similar protected grounds. Having long hair is not a protected category. You should consult a DUI lawyer in your area. There may be grounds to suppress evidence. You may have been illegally arrested. Maybe the blood draw was illegal. There may be other defenses. A...

    Charging yo with a crime is different from convicting you of it. It sounds like they have already charged you. To charge you they need very little proof - called probable cause. Probable cause is really no more than a strong suspicion. To convict you they need proof beyond a reasonable doubt. That is a much higher level of proof. Since you have been charged you need a lawyer. Wayne R. Foote, Esq. Board Certified OUI Defense Law Specialist by the National College for DUI Defense,...

    The best thing you can do is hire a lawyer. This is a serious charge with domestic violence issues. You may well have a good defense, but you probably cannot present that defense even half as well as a criminal defense lawyer. See a lawyer right away. Wayne R. Foote, Esq.

    I am sorry that you must deal with the consequences of your daughter's bad judgment. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to handle this. Many people charged with DWI later claim they were not driving, once they find out how serious a DWI can be. The police know this and are very skeptical of these changes in story. Your daughter needs an experienced DWI lawyer right away. Hiring a lawyer immediately allows the lawyer to gather witness statements and other evidence before that information...

    That will depend on the facts of your case. The best way to find out for sure is to talk to a lawyer and go over the case details. You should not do that here, on a public internet board. Talking about case details here could help convict you. Most attorneys offer a free or low cost consultation. You should contact a lawyer as soon as possible. Good luck.

  8. I was wondering for first oui would I have to take the deep course,with a clean record other wise?

    Ed Folsom's answer is spot on. If you are suspended for 90 days by the BMV for having a .08% or more BAC, or by the court upon conviction for OUI you must satisfy the DEEP requirement. You must take either the DEEP course (and counseling if they refer you to additional counseling) or DEEP certified counseling. There is no exception for having a clean record. If it looks like you are going to be suspended by either the BMV or the court you should start DEEP right away and not wait for the...

  9. How long does alcohol stay in your urine for a drug test? I pleaded guilty to a DUI and am on probation.

    Alcohol can last anywhere from 12-36 hours in your urine. Whether alcohol will show up will depend on how long before the test you drank, how much you drank and whether they are testing for EtG and EtS or just alcohol. If you had a glass of wine the night before they probably won't find anything. If, however, you were intoxicated it may show up. Urine testing can show the presence of alcohol, but only until the alcohol is out of the blood and the bladder is emptied - 6 to 12 hours after...

  10. Standard DUI procedure for lawyers?

    My best guess is that you are the poster from Blue Island who has an experienced DUI lawyer on the case, andwho has asked several other questions about DUI including whether you are an over anxious client because you email your lawyer daily about the case. If that is the case you need to slow down. This question is a good example of why you need to take a deep breath and let your lawyer work. While there may be roughly standard procedures that some lawyers follow in some DUI cases, there...
