I had court today for DUI my paid attorney never showed up to court later I found out he himself was in jail for a DUI and that why he was not at my hearing
If your attorney is being charged in the same county as you, I would think that would be a conflict of interest. How can he zealously advocate on your behalf against the same gov't that is now pressing charges against him? It is not possible.See question

Indiana counties have different ways of dealing with "pending results of blood alcohol concentration." Some counties, such as Marion, will often simply arrest and charge a person for DUI / OVWI even if no results are pending. Some counties, such as Orange, will not file DUI / OVWI charges until the blood work comes back.
There are some things that an experienced attorney can help you with. If you were my client I would immediately have you sign a hippa release and I would obtain the medical records fo the hospital that took your blood. I would like to see what the hospital and doctors thought. Depending on what I find I may recommend you obtain an alcohol evaluation now.See question

It likely means the officers made other mistakes as well. Hire an experienced DUI / OVWI attorney and have them figure out what other mistakes were made. Best of luck.See question

I was sent some LSD through the mail and 3 officers came to my house and questioned me, they had the package and told me I would be flagged. Does this mean I wont be able to fly on a plane? what are my options?
Never speak to the police without first consulting a criminal defense attorney. There are no exceptions. Find a trusted attorney and talk to him about your options.See question
What kind of time will he be looking at?
Getting a new charge while on probation is never a good idea.
The most important thing is he not make any admissions over the phone. All phone calls at all jails are recorded.
Battery cases are hard to prove because typically there are no police witnesses. But he could sink his own shop by making incriminating statements on the phone.See question

This is a very serious situation. I have no idea how far apart the DUIs (or OVWIs as they are called in Indiana) are, but here is a general breakdown.
If you have a second DUI charge within 5 years of your last DUI conviction it will be charged as a D felony. The maximum amount of time for a D felony in Indiana is 3 years. BUT, if the state charges the Habitual Substance Offender charge b/c your boyfriend has two prior unrelated DUIs then the maximum time on a D Felony is 11 years. This is very scary.
Please consult an experienced DUI attorney.
Good luck.See question

It is very likely that your D felony and the misdemeanor can be expunged from your criminal history. Please talk with an experienced expungement attorney.

This is my first offense
In Marion County Indiana if you choose to plead guilty to Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated (OVWI / DUI) the three biggest factors that the Judge or Prosecutor are going to consider are: 1. Prior OVWI / DUI. 2. Whether or not there was an accident and 3. what you have been doing since the arrest.
Blowing over a .15 with no prior DUI and not causing an accident, you are likely charged with an A misdemeanor. The maximum time in jail is 365 days. The minimum is 0. The maximum fine is $5000.00 and the minimum fine is $0.00.
Please consult with a qualified attorney so you can determine all your options, including fighting this case.
Good luck!See question
