    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.

    As a long-time Savannah DUI practitioner I agree your abilities to negotiate for further reductions have all but disappeared. Otherwise the defenses that exist are still there. I'm not hard to find if you want your matter more fully evaluated.

    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.

    As indicated by these fine lawyers, as to the law the results are very similar. There does seem to exist in my 38 yrs of experience a more subjective, under-lying bias by more conservative portions of our population against the DUI/ drug cases. The knee jerk reaction it pointed mostly to the illegal drugs , bunt most drug-related duos written appear to be prescription based cases.

    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.
