    The defense is related to INVOLUNTARY INTOXICATION. This defense is available, but likely only determinable by a trial. You attorney is the best source of his own research on the issue and his estimate of his ability to present this defense. Watch out for changing horses in mid-stream. Ultimately you choose which horse to ride...

    You need to have your case evaluated by the best dedicated DUI lawyer you can find in the area. These injuries may become more serious with time and even more serious charges may be brought against you. The prosecution will be aware of your previous DUI arrest in NC, so do not expect this case to "settle" easily. The details of the causual aspects of the accident are very important and well as the reports, videos and statement of the parties, EMT's and officers. So invest in the best you can...

    You should be able to gain access to your complete medical file, including these tests being referred to in your questions. Both of the previous answers are completely correct and I would add that your medical history will contain notations of your physicians finding and observations. Being able to obtain satisfactory further pain management treatment, may depend upon establishing some of these facts. You will find a number of available food and household substances contain amphetamine...

    Let's see... Try the phrase, "Bibb County Office of Indigent Defense" on Google, the phone book, or just call the clerk of courts office as ask them for directions to make contact with that office. As far as waiting until "court day", I couldn't say, as the day might be an arraignment, in which case it would be fine. But if the day of trial... maybe not so ok?

    Unless there has been a prior agreement that you may "Plea on Absentia", yo most certainly would be required to appear. it is altogether possible for the court to accept a plea on one day and expect to to return for sentencing on another. I am hoping you have a lawyer to guide you through this difficult time. If not, I do practice there routinely and might be available should you wish you inquire further of my office.

    Whether or not you received an affidavit, if you go back to the clerks office and get a "certified " copy of the final disposition, you can take that to the DDS and make the application for the temp.

    You did not mention how old the new case was, but this is not uncommon. Most frequently I find it happening with Georgia State Patrol cases. It seems there is a greater delay in forwarding the citations to the various courts. I would have a lawyer check into it for you. If not, good luck and I hope you do not miss something important. DUI's can have long term affects.

    Note that you citation has a heading that includes the language, "Accusation and Summons". You indicate that you are from the Augusta area, but there are several different court open there. Some prosecute on the citation alone, while others, like the State Court of Richmond County bring formal accusations on all misdemeanor cases. If you have a date on the citation, you should appear on that date, but hopefully not before you have sought the advice of a local attorney familiar with the...

    Inferring a couple of common questions, it sounds like the states case is purely circumstantial. Get yourself and your friend to a good DUI lawyer, soon Don't forget the "10 day letter" if the officer took your license.

    If you have an attorney now, you might inquire of him a clearer understanding of all this. Note too, if you have never discussed the case then it may still be unknown whether he has investigated anything or not? His offer to make a full refund is about all you can expect and is more than many might do in these unclear circumstance. He might be faulted for not keeping an open stream of communication with you, but as you are aware, he can't just pick up the phone an call an inmate anytime he...
