    If you were pulled over because of an accident, police had the right to approach you and question you. Even if you refused field sobriety tests, the officer can arrest for DUI based upon physical manifestations, driving and other evidence such as an open container in the car. Refusals are easier to handle than cases where the person performed all of the FSTs and state breath test. Feel free to call my office for a free consultation. 90% of my cases are DUI cases.

    Yes, but the State must prove he was in control of a moving vehicle while impaired by alcohol. If he was pulled over on the side of the interstate, it would be hard to argue against the above if he had all of the manifestations of intoxication and gave a breath test. If he was parked outside a bar at 1am, there is an argument he went to the bar sober, got druck there, and passed out in his car.

    No. Don't call him back. If he calls you or your Mom, absolutely DO NOT speak with him. Tell him you are busy. If he keeps calling, find an attorney, tell the detective that you have retained counsel and give the detective your attorney's number.

    You must why what a DUI would cost you and the chances of getting convicted by officer testimony. Juries believe officers of the more often than disbelieve them. I would advise to accept the deferred plea deal and stay out of trouble.

    An indictment is a formal accusation charging you with a serious crime (felony). You are now in the system and fight this felony charge. You should hire a criminal defense attorney now, as you are looking at possible prison time if convicted.

    Absolutely! There are many defenses to a DUI charge...whether you are guilty or not. A DUI will stay on your record for life and affect your ability to get jobs, attend schools, etc. An attorney can often reduce DUIs or take you to trial and possibly get a not guilty verdict. Hire an experienced DUI attorney.
