I am currently on probation for a first time DUI offense. I am about 6 months through my probation with absolutely zero violations. I went to start my car to leave for work and got a "fail". I was under thee impression that a fail would temporaril...
While it isn't impossible for the interlock company to report this to your PO, that would be unusual. When you take your car to the interlock provider, they download the data and submit it to the DMV. Again, it would be unlikely for the DMV to report this to the PO.See question
My now ex fiance and I got in an accident and the other driver has already been found at fault. But my ex was driving and had no license and when the officer asked who was driving he said I was. I was still in shock and went with it. Now i have to...
You are in a very complicated situation where additional charges may be filed against you for false reporting to the police.
You need to sit down with a criminal defense attorney to explore all your options.
Many of us offer a free consultation. Meet with one or two to BEFORE you go to court!See question

Yes, the prosecution can amend the charges up until the day of trial. No, you cannot get the charges dismissed because of this.See question
I am looking for an DUI defense lawyer. I've consulted with 3 lawyers. Two told me that TBI can be used as a defense in Colorado, and the other says it can only be used when pleading NGRI. Can anyone give me a straight answer to this question?
It depends on what you are trying to use it for. If you are suggesting that the physical signs or indicia of intoxication can be explained by the fact that you have a traumatic brain injury then yes, that can be used.
If you are suggesting that the fact that you have a TBI somehow negates your ability to distinguish right from wrong, then that is much trickier. I would start by challenging whether you are competent to assist in your own defense.See question

You should be asking whatever question you have of your lawyer. They know your case. There are certainly strategic reasons for waiving a preliminary hearing.See question
I have never had any alcohol convictions what so ever. However when I was 17 I had a duid and am now required to acquire the interlock system to get my license back. I am now 29 years old and have been sober for 4 years. I have graduated multiple ...
I'm not aware of any standing mechanism to do what you ask.
The interlock requirement is not one that is imposed by the court. Rather, it is required by the DMV itself. This was done by state law. I suppose you might try to have a court find that the law, as applied, is unconstitutional or discriminatory but this would be a serious uphill battle and IF you were successful, it would likely take months and more likely years to accomplish. By that time, you would have already served your time on the interlock requirement.
I know this isn't what you want to hear. The best way to change this is to get the state legislature to change the law and frankly, that isn't too likely either.See question

Unless there's a lot more to the story, probably not. You should certainly be prepared for an intensification of the monitored sobriety. For instance, they might order a SCRAM bracelet that monitors your skin for signs of metabolized alcohol in your sweat.
In the event that you do end up going to jail or being asked to post a cash bond, you might contact Erik in advance at http://www.milehighbailbonds.net/
You should also consider talking with a DUI defense attorney about your case in general.
Best of luck to you.

was accused by my wife of striking her, when in fact, I was sitting in a chair as she began to throw things and attempt to strike me
In most cases, the case will be dismissed unless there is other evidence to prove the allegations such as an independent witness.See question
11/2 years ago I witnessed a roll over accident. It was in a blizzard and freezing temps. I saw car go off and roll. I pulled over and finally got them out of the hatch back. They were both very under the influence. The wife came out first and imm...
To be frank, I don't know why anyone would want your testimony. If you didn't see who was driving or who was in the driver's seat, I don't see how you add anything to the case.
That being said, listen closely to the questions of the attorneys. If you hear one of them object to a question, wait until the judge has ruled on the objection and instructed you to either answer or disregard the question.See question

As Mr. Haber said, the statute of limitations does not apply to your case.
As to whether you will "do time" depends a great deal on your individual case. You need to sit down with a lawyer and discuss your details. Call a few of us. Most will offer a free consultation.
Best of luck to you.
