I know I need a lawyer. Charged with dui, driving on a suspended license and registration, and assault on a police officer (they actually assaulted me and should be on camera). They claim I admitted to using specific illicit substances before driving which I would never admit to even if I had. I refused to blow but eventually did.
I have a paper that says I refused and a paper that says I blew 0. And a paper that says I admitted. I have 6 tickets and 4 of them have the 17th listed as the date of the violation but signed the ticket using the 18th. I don’t even have tickets for the assault charges. I was pulled over for no turn signal which I am guilty
Of and of course driving on a suspended I am guilty of as well. Do I have a good defense? Do I plead guilty to the charges I am
Actually guilty of and not guilty to the rest or do I plea not guilty to all? How do I use the assault and the errors on the ticket to get the charges dismissed? If they do not dismiss the charges do I have a lawsuit? I am willing to not
Do that in exchange for dismissal of the charges. Should I file a lawsuit regardless?
you plead not guilty to all of them. And based upon the questions you are asking, you need a lawyer. A person not familiar with the legal process is left flailing around for a strategy.
Do not file a law suit right now. You are right. You need a lawyer. You have a triable case. Do not do anything but retain the services of an attorney.
This is an interesting case. This is a case an attorney could really sink his teeth into. From what you say, you may be able to beat the whole case. Retain an attorney who has extensive DUI experience. Law Offices of Theodore Gailan, 36 years of DUI experience, both as a prosecutor and as a defense attorney.
Be aware that receiving an answer to any online question does not establish either an attorney/client relationship, and it does not create a relationship of confidentiality.
You are absolutely correct. Writing any amount of legal opinions for your legal blight will not negate a dire necessity of retaining a good defense attorney.
