  • Looking at my 4th DUI charge, but I wasn't driving, can they still charge me with DUI? Other guy was driving and left the scene.

    Friend and I were enroute to store, he was driving and took a turn too quickly. Seattle police were making a right, police made a Uturn. By this time my friend pulled up the next block, parked and told me to switch seats with him cause he had warr...

    It would seem suspicious though why they saw you getting out of the driver's side instead if getting IN the driver's side. If you have switched places then why would you be be getting out?
    Also - think its strange that your buddy left the scene. Werent the cops wanting to question him as well? - the person who picked hm up is a potential witness for you now...he knows what happended and would potentially need to testify in trial to say that he knows you weren't the driver.

    This is interesting. You need to hire a good DWI lawyer to let the Prosecutor know that you are going to fight the "operating" issue because you would have a witness to testify that he was driving and you werent, assuming he takes care of his warrant and can testify for you in trial. You shoudln't plead guilty to something you are not guilty of.

  • AZ DUI 'Parked Car' Laws? I was arrested for DUI for sleeping intoxicated in my parked car, what now?

    At the same venue I was drinking at, never traveled anywhere. What can I expect in court and should I be appointed a court ordered lawyer?

    Tyler’s Answer

    It depends on the specific facts. Was the car running, keys in the ignition, car in gear? Was your foot on the break?

    Deteremining the operarting element is very fact specific but it coudl go your way depening on all the factors.
