how can they prove i was drinking at the time of the accident. I refused to blow breath test
Unfortunately, they can charge you with whatever they want. Whether they can prove it or it will stand up in court is an entirely different story. Remember it is the State's responsibility to prove every element of DUI beyond a reasonable doubt. It sounds like they may have trouble proving you were in fact under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident. But then again, they may try to presume and prove that the reason why you left the scene was because you were impaired. Whatever the case may be, the best thing you can do is hired an experienced DUI attorney to fight the case for you.See question
I was issued 30 day temp permit to drive and court dates not for 60 days what do I do after temp expires until I go to court to drive ?
If the officer seized your drivers license and issued you a notice of suspension along with a temporary driving permit, you will need to file an appeal to this action within ten business days from your date of arrest to ensure your license is not suspended. Otherwise, your license may be suspended for a period of one year. Sounds like you have some strong legal issues to challenge in your case. Contact an experienced DUI attorney to help you through.See question
This is my first time ticket , I even know what to do. I'm looking for a lawyer... I got arrested in Delkab county... If I don't have any record this could count for them
It depends on a whole host of issues. Whether the officer had a reason to stop you, whether he had probable cause to arrest you, whether he read you implied consent before requesting a test of your breath. The best thing you can do is contact an experienced DUI defense attorney and review your case in detail. We offer free consultations and are more than happy to assess your case and discuss likely outcomes.See question
I was arrested for DUI while visiting Atlanta in 2005 and never returned to fight the charges due to financial restrictions. I've recently moved from my home state of Michigan and have been told that due to this unsettled charge I cannot get a d...
It depends on the court. If you were arrested in City of Atlanta, it would be possible to hire an attorney and appear to have the case removed from FTA status, set aside the warrants, and then request documentation to clear your license suspension out of GA. You can then take these documents to your home state and clear the suspension, allowing you to surrender your old license and acquire a new one in SC. If your case is in Fulton County, not City of Atlanta, your attorney can file documents to set aside the suspension and bench warrant that probably issued.
You certainly do not want to walk into court unrepresented as you could certainly be arrested the second you enter into Georgia. You can always reach out to experts in DUI defense who can advise you on how to handle and what to expect. With the limited info you have provided, it is somewhat difficult to give you exact steps to resolve. The best move you can make is retain an experienced DUI attorney to help you with your case. Most of us are happy to talk on the phone and even offer free consultations to review the details of your case.See question
